Limited Edition Yellow Sun Storm!!!!
« on: October 03, 2022, 09:54:32 AM »
All:

Received an email from my distributor today as Storm is releasing in "Highly Limited Quantities" the Yellow Sun Storm. Only 3 per pro shop location is permitted, and each distributor is limited to a "super limited quantity" and when they are sold out, they are sold out.  I was able to get 3 and when I ordered, my distributor was almost sold out already and this was only announced at 10 am today.

Supposedly releasing on or around Friday November 18, also according to my distributor.

A bit off topic here, but I'll ask it anyway, since it deals with that ball..

I remember seeing the Yellow Sun Storm and Red Sun Storm back in the day when the XCalibur and Turbo X were also being thrown.. what was the difference between the Yellow and Red Sun Storms?

BL.

If I remember correctly yellow was weaker and polished while the red one was stronger core with a sanded cover

I believe Morpheus is correct.


Also - specs on the Limited Sunstorm

IQ Tour Core

SPEC cover.

Should be interesting

Unlike most, I like the Spec cover interested to see this go down the lane.

I like it as well. Still have a NIB Pro Motion and I believe the Roto Wild Streak was SPEC or a close variation and i have 1 of the still laying around as well.

I've ordered one, too. I always liked spec coverstocks.

I have been using mine on medium THS and its super good.   I think its on par with the iQ Tour, but more cover......excellent ball.  It makes me want to search out a ProMotion.

Just curious, is anyone still using this ball? I have one but yet to drill it. A league bowler who has used one said it doesn't hook.

Any thoughts?

I have personally never used one; but I have it thrown in league and it does in fact hook well for the bowler I saw with it.

Very late to this thread.

The yellow one was darn near uncontrollable with it's hook. I had one, sold it after attempting many cover alterations.

This is a crime by Storm in my opinion. The Storm "ball reps" in my area sold them for a ridiculous amount of money, pouncing on the "limited edition" verbage.

The ball market is out of control & some consumers just can't help themselves.

Agreed that some consumers can't help themselves.  ;D


I don't see how it's something Storm did wrong though.
