Electrify GO Review
« on: October 12, 2022, 07:34:12 AM »
The new Electrify GO brings back the same core and coverstock found on the original Electrify pearl but is finished with the new Reacta Gloss polish.  The Gold/Orange colors really brings great shelf appeal for pro shops but also looks great going down the lane.  The circuit core was designed for medium to drier lane conditions and does just that.  It is not the strongest pearl in the bag but definitely great for leagues in centers where there is a lot more friction or if your ball speed is low.  It is also a great step-down ball from current balls such as the phaze 5 or night road depending on your style.  The Reacta Gloss finish gives a more rounded, more continuation finish then we saw in the original pearl.  Compared to the Electrify Solid, you will see a few more feet of length and a faster down lane response.  If you use an Electrify Solid as your go to league ball, you will want to have the Electrify GO in your bag as well.

The new Storm Electrify G-O is the definition of bang for your buck. This ball hooks way more than I thought it would, and way more than its price point says it should. This ball picks up even earlier than the Phaze 5 and quite a bit more than the Hustle Camo, which is the ball I compared it to in my YouTube ball review. I will be using this new Electrify a lot on house shots that have built in friction because of the polished cover it has on it. If I am going to use it on heavier volume oil patterns, I will most likely be hitting this ball with a 1000 or 2000 sanding pad. Finally, the colors on this ball look amazing and I can read it easily going down the lane!

Electrify G/O – WWRD 10/21/2022

Storm’s new Electrify G/O is a Symmetrical piece that is good for Dry lane conditions.  PAP is 5 5/16 R 1 3/16 Up. Fragrance is Creamsicle Pie.  Drilled this piece with the Pin to the Right of the Ring and CG kicked out 1”.   Out of Box motion was Clean through the fronts with a smooth continuous motion on the backend.  When the lanes get burnt up and nothing is getting down lane this is the piece to go to. For me this piece is cleaner and smoother on the backend compared to the Electrify Pearl.

Ball Specs:
Storm Electrify G-O
Reacta Gloss Reactor™ Pearl Reactive
Weight Block: Circuit™ Core (Symmetrical)
Color: Gold/Orange

Review:
The Electrify Go is another great addition to the electrify line. This line has proven to be a great seller for all skill levels. The beginners will like it because it a great first ball if they want something that is going to be a little better then a Surge. While higher average and tournament bowlers are going to enjoy this ball because when the lanes start to dry out this ball will still be a great option. If you want a ball that is going to stand out on the lanes look no further, this ball will do just that! For the price point you won’t find a better ball. Go grab yours today!

If you are looking for length and backend this Electrify will have you yelling LET’S GOOO! Reactor Pearl cover and the higher rg Circuit core, the GO is the type of shape that Storm Bowling balls are known for.

The balls I think this compares best to are the Hy-road pearl and the Night Road. The Electrify GO is cleaner and sharper than both. So when you need to get in and wheel it to the dry this ball is the way to GO.

Electrify G-O Review by Lonnie Pemberton

Lane Condition:

Length:43
Volume: High
Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):THS

Comments:

Coverstock: Reactor Pearl
Core: Circuit Core
Finish: Reacta Gloss Factory Finish
RG: 2.53 (14lb)
Differential: 0.031 (14 lb)

Speed: 12-13 mph

The Electrify G-O (Gold/Orange) is the newest Hot Line Release by Storm. The circuit core is back this time paired with the Reactor Pearl cover in a bright new color that really stands out on the wall.

The G-O is the cleanest and I would say weakest of the Electrify balls I have thrown so far. The selling point for this line to me has always been how much they out perform their price-point. The down-side is that if you need a ball that is actually weak enough to properly represent that price-point you can find yourself struggling to control the previous releases. For me the Electrify G-O is cleaner than even the previous pearl released in the Electrify line. It doesn't really have a corresponding change in hook the back-end so the G-0 Will get down-lane further, with less effort and give you a very similar look off the back of the pattern.

I first threw the Electrify G-O in league. I decided to throw a couple shots with it in practice just to see what it would do on fresh oil. I didn't like my Electrify Pearl in that spot because our house shot is pretty cliffed and it is pretty common that the shiny balls feel like they come off the dry to hard to play right but are too clean for the fresh oil. The G-O definitely was more predictable out there. It actually let me into a zone I hadn't been able to play due to my lower ball speed. I decided to put it away until the lanes broke down some so I could see if was too lazy to cover boards down lane. I was really impressed with how far left I could play with it too. It really responds well to hand position changes so I could wheel with it once I was really forced left by lane transition.

I see the Electrify G-O being a great piece for guys who are very Rev Dominant. As  a Pro Shop Operator I could see it being a popular ball with many senior bowlers or anyone who bowls in a house where they struggle to deal with too much friction.

The latest addition to the Electrify line is the Electrify GO.  This ball features the same Circuit core as previous Electrify models, but this one is wrapped in the Reactor Pearl coverstock.  I drilled the GO the same as I drilled my Electrify Solid which was 60 x 5 x 40 which puts the pin above my middle finger.  The GO coverstock makes the ball glide through the front part of the lane but the backend is very strong for a ball at this price point.  The GO is about 2 to 3 boards less overall hook than the solid but provides a much different reaction.  The solid was very early rolling and mellow on the backend.  The GO does just that on the backend…it goes!!   This ball is great for league conditions when you want to play farther out in the dry part of the lane.  This ball will also come in handy later in tournaments when the conditions have really broken down and you need something to get through the fronts but still have some pop on the backend.  The GO is a great ball at a great price!

The newest edition in the Hot Line, is well, pretty hot. The Electrify G/O offers the Reactor Pearl coverstock finished in Storm's new Reacta Gloss Polish. I've never been a fan of polished equipment out of the box, but the G/O surprised me with how well it blended off the friction. Compared to the original Electrify Pearl, the G/O seems pick up aRead more about review stating Another House Killer, and Go Vols! little earlier and bite more on the backend.
I drilled my Electrify G/O 4.5x4x2.75, and it surprised me of how dynamic it was down lane. To compare it to a ball similar in my current bag, it is fairly close to IQ Emerald in terms of use. It is very helpful when I need to clear the fronts and mids when the lanes break down and I cannot throw my Zen anymore.

I drilled up my ELECTRIFY GO 55 x 4.5 x 30. I lightly hit the surface with 3000 to get the factory gloss off of it. I threw this side by side with some pearl Storm pieces namely the PHAZE V, NIGHT ROAD, and INFINITE PHYSIX.

On a more medium pattern like a 40 foot house, the ELECTRIFY GO is in play a lot sometimes to start and thru the entire set. When I got it on longer patterns, it was not in play unless the field blew up the pattern and everyone was forced left of the third arrow. Compared to the PHAZE V, it was no contest. PHAZE V was too early and too strong. Same with INFINITE PHYSIX. Now it was closer to the NIGHT ROAD and was a great compliment length wise. It is a slightly softer motion compared to the NIGHT ROAD and works well when the lane starts to get toasty.

Drill this one up if you are rev dominant or slower speed but want more performance than the low end starting level balls.

The Electrify GO is a surprisingly smooth, arcing, and controllable mid range pearl ball. Unlike some previous pearl balls that have been in this price range over the years, the GO does not go sideways down lane, and due to that is an impressive piece that is quite versatile. The midlane traction that this ball has allows it to be used on more volume than expected, up to a point. It still does not have the strength to cut through fresh heavy oil, but that's what the Super Nova or Phaze II is for.  Once those dull balls start to pick up too early is where the GO shines. Medium to medium-dry conditions is where this ball is at home.

Storm Electrify GO
Layout: 4 x 4 x 2.25 Storm Pin Buffer Layout
Rev Rate: 325 rpm, 7 degree of axis tilt, 40 degree of axis rotation
Testing information: 41 foot THS (medium to light volume)
Bowling Center: Fulton Bowling Center
Kegel Machine – Brunswick Anvilane

The Storm Electrify GO utilizes the Reactor Pearl coverstock and Circuit Core.  The Electrify GO will be in play on medium to light oil patterns for most of us.  It will be a good piece for bowlers will slower ball speed or that are rev dominant.
I see the Storm Electrify GO being a weaker version of the HUSTLE USA.  They have the same motion but Hustle USA handles the oil better.

The Electrify G-O is a great new release by Storm. With the proven Circuit Core and the Reactor Pearl Reactive coverstock, the Electrify G-O delivered high-scoring results at a cost-effective price. So, let's take a closer look at how the Electrify G-O performed on a THS!

The Circuit Core is a Storm staple core. And the Circuit Core continued its success inside the Electrify G-O. The Circuit core has a smooth continuous motion I like to see on a THS. I enjoyed playing right of the second arrow early on. Because of the Circuit Cores' predictable movement, I maintained that same consistency throughout the night, even as I started moving in. And either playing straight or moving in the Circuit core releases a good amount of energy at the pins without a lot of deflection! The Circuit Core makes the Electrify  G-O a versatile ball for many levels and styles of bowlers.

The Reactor Pearl Reactive Coverstock on the Electrify G-O was a pleasant surprise. Since I am high speed and a low rev player, Pearl coverstocks are typically not my first choice for a THS on fresh oil. However, I decided to sand the Reactor Pearl cover with a 1500-grit Abralon pad. Then, I watched as the Electrify G-O came alive for me! The Reactor Pearl cover reacts very well to friction. With that bit of surface, I found the Electrify G-O handles a light volume of oil smoothly without a knee-jerk reaction off the pattern. In addition, the Pearl Reactor Cover provided a smooth blended motion as the lane conditions transitioned. And I liked how this cover blended the late-night conditions you struggle with when your THS seems to disappear. 

In conclusion, the Storm Electrify G-O is a good choice for any THS player. For the beginner, this ball will take you beyond the basics and allow you to grow into the ball's performance without having to "upgrade." And to the seasoned bowler, you will find the Electrify G-O has a place when you need that smooth, dependable look to get you to the pocket! And the best part for any style bowler is the price tag! The Electrify G-O is the right ball at the right price. Therefore, I suggest talking with your local pro shop owner and see where the Electrify G-O fits into your arsenal. The Electrify G-O will bring results!

Storm Electrify G/O pearl
Specs: Reactor Pearl coverstock with the Circuit core finished with Reacta Gloss from Storm
Layout: 5.5 x 4.5 x 3.5.

With my current level of ability, weaker cores and pearlized covers are still my best choices for league bowling matches.

The “G/O” was a good addition to my league match bowling ball arsenal. The house I bowl in has lanes in the middle part of the center that read and hook early while the higher end tends to play longer and tighter. So to compare, I used a Roto Grip Hyped Pearl that was 4k fast out of the box, but I change the surface by putting it into the shop’s Storm factory machine and using fresh VISE 1000ab and then 2000ab pads, then added Storm Reacta Gloss and polished it for 2 minutes, which got the surface prep closer to the G/O. First thing I noticed that the G/O goes a little shorter before making the transition from skid to the hook stage then the Hyped Pearl, it motion was a little earlier then what I expected playing my typical line and angles I used with the Hyped Pearl and my most loved Hyped Hybrid. G/O had a better overall reaction on fresh conditions, after the conditioners traveled down lane, the ball tended to get a little lazy. The BETTER news is how the ball rolled on another center I bowl with really well “worn” HPL with less oil volume, but longer overall length of pattern. I have struggled there most of the year with either rolling too weak stuff or so strong stuff that the ball will react at the 1-2 pocket - YES… I am a lefty for those that don’t know. The G/O held up for me for most of the practices and league matches. I feel the G/O is a better entry level reactive ball then anything else out there on the market. Stronger than Tropical Surge line, but not as angular or snappy as the Hyroads, or Fate or similar stronger symmetrical  When clients and other what ball would be best for a once a week bowler and they want reliability , I direct them to the Storm Electrify G/O on the wall.
