Parallax Review
« on: August 01, 2020, 10:37:37 AM »
New Cover, New Core, New Excitement! The Parallax, featuring the Traction X7 Hybrid Coverstock matched with the Aeroflow core, will provide a strong asymmetrical ball for those heavy to medium heavy oil conditions.

The design intent was to combine features of 7 of Storms best coverstocks which resulted in the Traction X7. With the Aeroflow core we see the mimic of a weight hole in the core which will help offset the new USBC rule of no weight holes.

There is a lot of chat about how different this shape is from the tech team at Storm and how the Parallax provides a unique reaction against the existing lineup. This ball will most likely be a step down ball from either a strong Asym or Symmetrical solid and when I need to initially begin opening my angles up when there is still a decent amount of oil in the front part of the lane.

How about doing a review......when you actually review the ball.......BY THROWING IT!

DUH!! This is useless fodder straight from the Storm press releases!
Some days you're the bug....some days you're the windshield...that's bowling!

Storm Parallax
Layout – 55 x 5 3/8 x 10
I am always a big fan of shiny pearl/hybrid asymmetrical balls so I was excited to drill this one!  This one for me is as strong as you would expect, I wanted to drill it differently from my Nuclear Cell to compliment it.  My Nuclear is pin down and this is a sky high pin.  I have this ball earlier and stronger than the Nuclear.  I always knock the shine off of our shiny balls when I first get them, I did that on this ball with a 1000 pad to give it some teeth.  This is a perfect ball down from UFO or Physix, should be great in transition, and won’t quit down lane!  Get yours today!

The Parallax contains the new Aeroflo core which helps improve core dynamics in today's sport.  Unlike most asymmetrical pearl balls from Storm, the Parallax gives you a little bit of a smoother motion then typically found for this type of ball.  This ball is definitely more ideal when more control of the breakpoint is required but you need a clean coverstock.  Sport patterns and hooking house shots are good for this type of ball reaction.  The New TX7 coverstock gives you the cleanliness of a Hybrid but smoothness of a solid while still allowing for stronger midlane read and continuation.  This will be a good ball if you really like the Physix and Astrophysix because it is more or less a blend of both balls.  When more downlane angle is needed the Astrophysix would be the go to ball but if you need a cleaner but controllable ball after the Physix, the Parallax is the go to ball.  I can see myself using this ball on a wide array of sport patterns and some typical house shots.
