Hy-Road Max
« on: February 11, 2021, 08:30:10 AM »
The Hy-Road Max is by far the strongest Hy-Road to date. It has the NeX Coverstock which is Stormís strongest Coverstock. For me, Hy-Roads were always on the cleaner and flippier side anyways, so its nice that Storm gave us a Hy-Road that brings the breakpoint closer to us. Following, I usually throw the Hy-Roads at the end of blocks when the lanes have really broken down. The new Hy-Road Max will come into play earlier in the blocks because of the cover. I think its pretty obvious what this ball will do without me spoon-feeding it to you. The cover is stronger, therefore, it will be earlier than the rest of the Hyroads we currently make. I anticipate using this ball on long patterns where the lane surface hooks, medium patterns, flatter patterns and possibly even shorter patterns where I really need to control my angles off of the gutter. You will see smoother ball motion out of the Max which will help control the pocket. House shots are not out of the equation either. This past week a buddy of mine bowled 858 with his Hy-Road Max on the house shot. Hy-Roads are known for being user friendly no matter what style you have and I think the Max continues the trend. As always, I try to give different styles an idea of what to expect. Slower speed player or rev dominant players will see this ball really dig in the midlane because of the NeX cover.

Storm's new HyRoad Max combines a few familar elements into something that looks to be an amazing ball for higher volume house shots and tournament patterns! It combines the NeX Solid cover (previously seen on the Axiom and Proton PhysiX) and the revered Inverted Fe2 core from the HyRoad series... wrap all of that in a bright-green 3000 Abralon shell and make it smell like green apple, and it doesn't get much better. Mine reminds me a lot of an Axiom that doesn't get into the roll phase quite as early - or, if you liked the AllRoad and just want more teeth then this is the ball for you.

The Hyroad Max brings back the popular NEX coverstock most recently found on the Proton Physix and Axiom bowling balls.  The cleaner Inverted FE core allows for a clean reaction through the front of the lane while the strong NEX cover allows the ball to dig strongly into the midlane while still maintaining a controlled yet continuous shape through the pins.  The Hyroad Max brings a reaction very unique to the Storm lineup.  The strength of the NEX Cover makes this ball ideal for medium to heavy lane conditions or those who are more speed dominant.  For me and my higher rev rate, this ball has a harder time for longevity on typical house patterns.  For me this ball would be great on more heavier oil conditions, sport patterns with volume and longer oil patterns.  Those with lower rev rates will be able to have a lot more usage for a league session or tournament.  Don't be afraid to bring the ball's surface up to 4000 or even polished to create a little weaker overall shape.

The Hyroad Max features the NeX solid cover and famed symmetric inverted FE squared core.  NeX solid was launched on the Axiom, and was most recently on the Proton PhysiX, and is an evolution of NRG.  More durability, more entry angle, and more strength, and so far the Axiom has been a favorite among the touring players, while the Proton is picking up steam as well.  There isnít much to say about the inverted FE squared core that hasnít been said, itís the Hyroad core coming in at a 2.57 RG and an .046 differential in 15 pounds.  The higher RG helps the ball get further down the lane while the medium high differential helps it recover and punch down lane.  The blend of the longer and stronger core with the super strong cover creates a unique look that helps you get traction and predictability without it starting up as early as something like an Axiom or a Proton PhysiX, and would be a nice step down from either of those when they get too early.  It should also be a great option on shorter but heavier sport patterns and on heavier patterns overall when chasing the shot inside.  As the lane transitions, you sometimes need stronger covers to dig through the volume without stronger cores making the ball start up too early.  The Hyroad Max gets a 7 for hook, a 5 for length, and a 5 for backend strength

The Hy Road Max is the latest installment of one of the most historical line of bowling balls in bowling today. The Hy Road Max features the classic Inverted Fe2 weight block wrapped around the recently popular NeX Solid cover. I drilled mine 5.5 x 3 x 3 and here is a disclaimer, if you are looking for another Hy Road that creates a lot of angle, this probably isnít the Hy Road for you. The Max is a lot smoother and reads the lanes much earlier due to NeX. After throwing mine for a couple weeks this ball actually reminds me of a stronger version of the Roto Grip Wild Streak from last year.  It is really good when the lanes are fresh and doesnít give you too much backend reaction like the original Hy Road does. Heavier volume patterns or flatter patterns where you want a smoother ball reaction will best suit this Hy Road Max. MUST HAVE FOR TOURNAMENT BOWLERS.

HyRoad Maxx
Layout - 55 x 5 x 30

First, this ball has fantastic shelf appeal and SMELLS AMAZING!  For me, I haven't matched up super well with HyRoad's lately, high RG cores and I don't usually get along.  This one is much more usable with the super strong cover.  For me out of the box it was earlier and lazier than I wanted it to be, I smoothed the surface up to use it later in the block and it rolls great!  For those of you who bowl league, this is going to be a must have.  It is a new version of the HyRoad Nano which was a staple in most folks bags, give this one a try!

Storm Hy-Road Max
Hey everyone, Iím back with another ball review, and this time itís for the Storm Hy-Road Max. This ball is wrapped in the NeX Solid 3000-grit Abralon with an RG 2.57 and of Diff .046.
The first thing you will notice about this ball is that itís green and smells like a green apple jolly rancher. (Donít throw this ball on an empty stomach) Since I received the Hy-Road Max it has been putting in a lot of work and two of our three centers out there in Kenosha, WI. The one center that I bowl at that I can not use this ball puts out enough oil that I can stay in a Roto Grip RST-X1 or Storm Proton Physix for all three games of the league.  Our other two centers have higher friction lanes and I can find myself using this ball on the fresh there. (2/26/21 I used this ball from start to finish and had games of 256-289-278=823) My ball has a layout of 4 Ĺ  X 3 ľ  X 1 ĺ. What I see with this ball is that typical Hy-Road look meaning that the core doesnít want to roll up too fast or too slow.  The new NEX cover that has been on the Axiom, Axiom Pearl and Proton Physix is being proved to be a fantastic cover for a wide variety of bowling balls. I am more up the back of the ball than others so I see ball motion a little different and the roll that I create allows me to stay in balls much longer than others. I see this ball sitting in between the Axiomís to make a great 1-2-3 punch, but there is a touch of difference so you will not need all three.
Until the next review Bowl Up A Storm!
