Happy early Christmas to me.

That's a great color scheme for a ball.

Question! What's the difference between R2X and R3S covers? R2X always treated me well, but I've never thrown R3S anything.

@ SVstar34,

LOL!  I feel you on this one.

I am a Storm, Roto Grip, and Radical fan.  And I am just as excited as anyone when they all release new equipment.  However, due to the fact that I can’t afford to buy every single ball that comes our way, I have to pick and choose carefully when it comes to the new stuff.

It also helps me and my pockets that my admiration for Radical is slowly diminishing because they are not as “innovative” as they used to be now that they are under Big B’s umbrella.  But my other favorites, Storm and Roto Grip are starting to cause me some “issues”.  LOL!  :D

On release day for the Gravity Evolve and All Road, they announce the PHASE 3!!   WHAT?!!  Come on man!  I haven’t even gotten the chance to go to the pro shop to put my hands on the Evolve and you do this to me!   LOL.   And to top it off, Roto Grip announces the Wild Streak and the MVP Pearl!
 
Since I loved the Wreck-Em, the MVP Pearl has my name all over it!  I can’t do the Wild Streak because those “nugget” balls like the Hy-Roads and the old Ceramicore balls never really worked for me.  But dang, five good balls in less than two months?!...   How does a man choose?...
 
Wisely, my friend.  Choose wisely.  LMAO!
 
(That Big B. Prism Hybrid looks good, too.  Too bad I can’t use them all.  :D)
     
I sure feel sorry for the staffers…   LOL!  :D

Dueces!

Intense balls had R3S.  R3S is stronger but not a lot I don't think.  Anyway seen a newer chart with SPEC at top but this isn't a bad one - http://www.bowlingboards.com/threads/19901-Storm-Core-and-Cover-strength-chart

Wow, did you read the $%^&* comments on youTube? "Soft transition", "not going thru the pins"... Unreal. I see a stroker coming back from 7 and exiting thru the 8 pin... We must not be looking at the same ball.

Someone needs to show Storm this thread. Consumer confidence is high on this release compared to the SPEC covered balls.

Not saying the SPEC balls don't have their place but this looks like a money maker

A shiny ball with a big sym core is going to be better on a house shot than a smooth solid on a house shot???  You don't say . . maybe Storm should just discontinue the IQ Tour and all their solid non-house shot balls and just release stuff that goes 45 feet and turns sideways!
