Second Dimension ?
« on: December 22, 2008, 01:10:02 AM »
Today our pro shop operator got 2 case Dimension, when he check the ball, he find a ball called Second Dimension. The ball was in the original Dimension's box with the Dimension drill sheet. The color is red/green pearl. Not sure it is
Pearl reactive, Pearl Particle or a Hybird. The ball look Finish by 1500-grit Polish. Serial No.: 08TDDL096023.
Is these is the new release or a Blem?

Colors sound similar to the X-Factor Ace.

To the comment about how it is a "better" version of the gravity shift, how close is it in overall hook is it another one of those hook monsters? Or an actually useable ball for us slower ball speed people?

I'm thinking it probably is a particle pearl. I think it makes sense if the Shift is discontinued. Storm usually has a particle pearl in their lineup somewhere. The old Track Heat's were particle pearl and used Mica for the particles.

Here's a little definition from Wiki on mica:
Mica is often found in mineral cosmetics.

Some brands of toothpaste include powdered white mica. This acts as a mild abrasive to aid polishing of the tooth surface, and also adds a cosmetically-pleasing glittery shimmer to the paste. The shimmer from mica is also used in makeup, as it gives a translucent "glow" to the skin or helps to mask imperfections.

Mica is used in the production of pearlescent pigments.

Many metallic looking pigments are composed of a substrate of mica coated with another mineral, usually TiO2. The resultant pigment produces a reflective color depending on the thickness of the coating. These products are used to produce automobile paint, shimmery plastic containers, high quality inks used in advertsing and security applications.

So, is it for the appearance or traction? Just my $.02, Bruce
I had a RSX that looked pearlescent and I called Roger N. and he said that a few of the first RSX's had a little mica in the coverstock which gives it the pearlescence!

Storms website lists a "Perfect Dimention". No mention of the 2nd Dimention.

Perfect Dimension is an overseas solid/pearl hybrid version of the Dimension.  Storm doesn't list their upcoming releases on their website until the last minute -- once the ball gets on the USBC approved list, it still takes several weeks before they'll acknowledge it on the Storm website.

I called Storm to see about this and she said I was the first one to order one. However she did also tell me it would be at least 2-3 weeks before the PBA balls go out. Usually the staffers get them first starting with the National tour, then the regional/amatuer staffers. Then they send out the PBA offer balls.

No problem, I will just keep using my Cell Pearl in that slot for the time being.

I do hope that it is a pearl particle though. I have had some great sets with Storm pearl particles going back to the X-Factor Reloaded.

Can anyone explain to me why all the balls are advertised in Japanese and not English


Hi-Sports is a Japanese company.  Why wouldn't they advertise in Japanese?

Apparently Storm doesn't seem to get too upset over Hi-Sports announcing a bit before other retailers.

Storm likes to get their latest releases on the lanes in Japan before they release it worldwide it seems like.  (We've seen this in the past quite often)  Not sure why.

...the answer was implied.  It's not a worldwide release yet technically, there isn't an English version of the ad yet.  (In fact, I e-mailed Storm to see if they were allowed to divulge any info yet and they said no because it's not a worldwide release yet)

Sorry, sarcasm is hard to detect in text sometimes.

its is a pearl right?
That's actually why I e-mailed Storm.  I'm not sure if it's a pearl or if it's a particle pearl.  (I'm hoping for the latter, but either would actually make me pretty happy!)  I guess we'll find out eventually.

Looks like anyone using Storm have them in the bag this week. A good step down from their Virtuals from what I saw.
