Hy-Road Max Review
« on: February 05, 2021, 01:19:04 PM »
Hy-Road Max:

The famous inverted FE2 technology is back with this iteration of the Hy-Road series. This time we're matched up with the NEX cover; Storm's earliest cover to date.
What I liked about this ball is we get the length we been accustomed to from the Hy-Road series with the teeth of the NEX cover. This will allow the ball to clear the fronts yet grab enough in the mid's to give you a smooth controllable shape.
This ball will be perfect for a multitude of patterns; from house to sport and be receptive to a variety of surface changes to match the pattern and lane surfaces for a higher level of scoring.

Storm Hy-Road Max ball review by Ron D’Ambrosio:
Coverstock: NEX Solid Reactive R4S™
Weight block: Inverted Fe2 symmetrical 2.57 RG 0.046 Diff (15lb.)
Color: Emerald/Lime
Finish:  3000 grit Abralon
Bowler Specs:
Right Hand. PAP 4” Over 0 up
Rev Rate 400, Average Tilt, low Axis Rotation.
Speed at cameras 16.5 – 17.5
Layout: 4.5 x 4 x 2.5 (pin up)

Smooth defined breakpoint
The new Hy-Road Max really blends the lane out without sacrificing the punch down lane. The NEX coverstock is pretty strong, but because the Fe2 weight block wants to get the ball down the lane, the two complement each other seamlessly. I would describe this ball as a little stronger than my IQ Tour Nano pearl, but not as strong as my Axiom. If your league shot is too dry to use the big hooking stuff but still has a decent amount of oil, this ball will work nicely. The OOB finish was just a touch too strong so a quick wet sand with a 4000 grit pad put just a tiny bit of sheen on the ball and really woke it up. It scooted down the lane easier but still remained super smooth, read the mid-lane nice and had great pop on the back. Misses to the outside rolled up to the pocket instead of bouncing off the dry and misses inside of target held nice but still finished hard. And the eye catching color brought a lot of people over to my lanes for a look.  This will be a first ball out of the bag for a lot of people.
