Storm history lesson (most on here probably know)
« on: January 13, 2019, 10:14:59 PM »
From the 1994 Lichstein's 1994 Ball Guide.  Learned a little history today.  The Tropical Storm was the bomb back in the day and first reactive available for under $75 (which was still a decent sum back then).  Different ball today I am sure of course but cool kept that name around.

HSP Inc.
Sun Storm(3)                    11          Reactive(76-76) 
2-Piece

According to its ads, this new yellow reactive urethane from High Score
Products is "not for the timid."  It has a very dense weight block and thick
cover for strong hook.  This ball is factory dull for use on oi,
but it hooks "violently" whe shined.  NEW

Pacific Storm(3)                12          Reactive(76-77) 
3-Piece

Another new HSP listing, this factory dull ball features a dense weight
block with a unique shell designed specifically for the "Pacific rim"
bowler, thus the name.  NEW

Tropical Storm(1)               13          Reactive(76-77) 
3-Piece

The first mid-priced reactive to my knowledge, this dull ball again
features HSP's dense core block which yields strong back-end reaction.
NEW

Black Storm(3)                   7          Urethane(78-80) 
2-Piece

The lone regular HSP urethane, its cross-inertia weight block is
designed to keep pins low.

Teal Pearl Storm(3)             10          Reactive(76-77)   
3-Piece

A Senior Tour favorite, this reactive ball is designed to hook
hard, but with control.

Blue Pearl Storm(3)              8          Reactive(76-77)   
3-Piece

Unique shell combined with dense weight block give smooth,
controlled flip.  Crankers like it.
