Big skid/snap. Holy chit this ball hooks on the back. In fact I did not care for it that way.  Billy Ray suggested white scotchbrite on spinner. Rolls great...picks up a little earlier and still is strong on the back without the giant snap. Very good ball.

Yeah, this is all I have been hearing about this ball. A kid I know got one, and just loves it. I saw him throw it, and Ive never seen anything snap like that at the end so hard for him. Every Storm ball I have loved has had the big snap at the end...so I think I will have to get one of these sometime.

I have mine 5 x 4 1/2 you will love the ball nice revving motion to it and snap off it goes. I used it on fresh medium/heavy and it just rolled on the oil and arced nice on the backend, last night used it on a flooded 10 and out sport shot the ball held in the oil and was too much too control on the flying backends. I used a stacked Hot Wire and had excellent control so the Hot Wire on this pattern was much more tame choice with control, so with the Fired up i think it will be much more useable ball on THS.

You should talk to Billy Ray more about drillings because he is a Storm Staffer, he helped me with out my Vertigo layout.

yes pin over finger more length and flip or pin under fingers smoothier ball motion, so you could do either way with 5" pin to pap and 4 1/2 cg to pap.

All good drillers will already know this anyway, you will like this ball it is a winner!

Yeah, it is big time skid/snap.  It's also big time roll early.  If you have 40 feet of medium-heavy oil and strong backends, you'll destroy the condition all night long.  It almost reminds me of a Cherry Bomb for some reason, also the Intense Inferno.
