Phaze and Fight
« on: January 19, 2016, 08:44:13 AM »
Have any of the staffers out there gotten their hands on either the new Phaze or Fight? Very curious about both of these new balls.

Some have. These 2 balls are the first 2 Storm balls to interest me in almost 2 years. The Fight definitely has my attention with the high rg and strong cover.

The core of the fight is huge! The phaze is supposed to be super tacky. I watched a video on Facebook last night of chad McLean of storm picking a 16# phaze up non drilled with one hand just gripping it.

I was leaning towards the Fight with that huge core, but something about the Phaze and it's crazy tacky cover has my eye. I saw that video yesterday too and it was wild. I'm more on the I want them than I need them.

I saw something about the Flights huge core.....that it helps retane axis title longer. Does this help high trackers?

Yeah I'm not sure if either are really a necessity for anyone. Depends on how strong the phaze is. If it's super tacky and has this new gripping technology the cover could be pretty strong. The fight looks good because of huge core but it's in the same line as the rocket and hyroad so there are other options in that category that are great pieces.

Are the HyRoad and Rocket 3000 grit solids? The Fight should yield a look that we haven't seen in the thunder line.

What I was saying is that it's a good line as it sits. I never said it wasnt a good choice by storm to release a ball like that. They already have a 3000 grit solid over on the roto side. Not saying the fight can't match or better it. But still

Storm and Roto Grip operate as 2 different companies. We have not seen a solid in the Thunder line since the HyRoad solid. And the Fight has a new cover and core combo. Something the line hasn't seen in over 2 years.

My Fight video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLffUaNsb-Y

The Phaze rolls a lot like the Eternal Cell, it acts more like a polished solid than a pearl.  Definitely a different look and feel.  However, the backend transition is very different, it's slower and pretty smooth on the backend, but energy transition at the pins is pretty wild, doesn't really matter how or where the ball hits, the pins just fly.  The Fight is the ball the Hyroad Solid should have been, that's the easiest way to explain it.  It's a solid Hyroad, nuff said.

What do you mean exactly?
What was it about the Hyroad Solid that would require the release of a different ball (The Fight) in its place?

I never owned a Hyroad Solid but did throw it at a demo day and could strike from anywhere (unlike other Storm/RG balls I got to throw that day).
