Phaze 4 Coverstock guesses?
« on: October 26, 2021, 04:16:43 PM »
With the USBC approval of the Phaze 4, I was curious what your thoughts are on the potential cover they'll use for this ball.  P2 was obviously the TX16 solid, the P3 was the R3S Hybrid.  The overseas Phaze Star is the R2S Pearl.  The original Phaze was the AX16 Pearl.  We've also had the Warp, Pink, Frenzy, Flow, etc with various covers.

I'm expecting a stronger pearl that hasn't been previously released with this core.  Something like the NEX Pearl was my first guess, but with core numbers so similar to the Axiom Pearl that might not make sense, which could result in the potential of a Nano Pearl Cover on the Velocity core.

What do you think?

I feel like the only person in the world BEGGING storm to put R2S nano hybrid from the Drive on another ball. Say… the hyroad core? The phase would also be a good contender I think, although I haven’t thrown one yet

I think it is interesting how the Phaze 4 is not on Storm's website and yet the Nova and Spectre have already made the main page.  Is this ball a US release?  I just recently punched up a Scorpion and now looking to grab something to compliment it.  Phaze 3, Wolverine, Spectre, and Trend 2 are all possibilities though.

I currently have an Incite with Hybrid R4S and to me this a really durable(minimal lane shine) and smooth cover stock. I was really hoping that Phaze 4 would be Pearl R4S and compliment the Incite, being just as durable, but quicker down lane.

Shota cracking me up with the "Oooooooowah" after every shot.  But that ball does look very good.

For anyone that throws 12 or 13lb equipment, the Phaze 4 is literally the same as the Hy-road Pearl.  Same cover, same core.  Save yourself $50 and get the Hy-road Pearl and it is the same thing.

14-16lb gets you the different core in the Phase 4, so for bowlers using those weights it does make a difference.

Anyone else notice in the difference on the pictures of the coverstock topography(where it shows the microscopic view)? It is the one used for the R3S yet it says R2S? Anyone else confused? I was hoping for R3s or Rx2...
