Parallax Effect
« on: March 17, 2021, 02:53:43 PM »
The Parallax Effect is much better than its predecessor. The first Parallax wasn't my favorite. It seemed to be hit or miss on patterns and wasn't all that special on house. The Parallax Effect is the ball that the first Parallax should have been. It has the same core with a pearl cover and out works the first ball by a mile. Usually with Pearl asyms we get incredibly weak covers on huge cores. The cover on the Effect feels much stronger than what we're used to seeing from Storm. Don't expect this ball to labor in the oil. When throwing this ball it seemed to always want to overhook which isn't a bad thing compared to some pearls that want to wiggle off in the oil. Compared to the Parallax, the Effect is stronger and has more shape overall which will allow you to not only use it earlier but use it on a variety of oil patterns.

The Parallax Effect features the Aeroflo core found in the original Parallax but is now wrapped in traction X7 pearl. This direct quote from Storm explains the design intent behind Aeroflo. “The flip block coupled at the bottom ensures high total differential, but without the crucial cuts on the Y-axis, the intermediate differential would be just 0.007! The strategically positioned depressions on the Z-axis 6 3/4” from the pin mimic the effect of an extra hole in a similar space and keeps the intermediate differential at a more workable amount. Having a precise ratio of intermediate to total differential makes drilling less sensitive for drillers and provides a truer roll for bowlers.” What this boils down to is a core that mimics a ball with a weight hole while still legal within today’s rules! I find the Parallax Effect to be a fantastic option after my Honey Badger Intensity or Incite start to bail downlane due to the friction being created but the pattern isn’t defined enough for my UC2. When compared to the original Parallax, the Effect feels nothing like it. It’s much cleaner, sharper and faster downlane. Both Parallax’s would make a fantastic 1-2 league punch!
