Storm Absolute Power
« on: January 20, 2024, 08:32:48 PM »

The Absolute Power is the second ball in the Absolute family. The Absolute I was a ball that I didn’t use a lot because it was so clean for an asymmetrically due too R2S Deep Hybrid but when I did use it, it was really good especially at USBC Nationals on the D/S pattern. The Power is wrapped in the R2S Deep Solid cover and I drilled mine 5.5 x 5 x 5. When I first threw this ball I couldn’t believe the shape this ball gave me, it reminded me of a Phaze 2 just stronger. It gave me a little length compared to other solid asymmetrical balls like the DNA and Eternity Pi but it still made a strong motion in the oil. This is a ball I’m going to use on multiple different pattern lengths and volumes, this one is going to be super popular!

Absolute Power
Coverstock: R2S DEEP Solid Reactive
Finish: 4000 Grit Abralon
Core: Sentinel
(14 pd)
RG: 2.54
Differential: 0.045
Int Diff: 0.018

Layout: 2 x 6 x 5 - 2LS
Layout Extras: 2 3/4 Finger Depth, "X" - 4 1/2 D and 1 Inch Left
Tester: PAP 6 1/2 R, 1 1/4 D

The Absolute Power features the R2S DEEP coverstock which stands for Delayed Energy for Enhanced Performance. In layman's terms this simply means the R2S coverstock will pick up later on the lane compared to previous versions of R2S. This should create more of an angular reaction downlane.

Taking into consideration the above the shop decided to go with a short pin to PAP layout on the Absolute Power. For more information you can reference Storm's 2LS Poster Layouts #2 for more details. Basically this layout is good for rev dominant players and can be most effective on shorter patterns or patterns where a lot of friction is showing at the end of the pattern.

What has impressed me the most with this ball is that for having a solid finish the ball did not dig into our 41'THS immediately. Also, I did not do any cover adjustment at this time. So far this ball will shine on your lighter volume fresh patterns and medium patterns. I also feel this ball is very versatile in being able to stay in it as the lanes transition.

For me, the Absolute Power did not "lock up" as some asyms in my hand tend to do. In comparison to my DNA which I have the same layout the Absolute Power ball surface is a tad smoother and will allow me to stay in the ball a tad longer for having slower ball speed. Both the Absolute Power and/or the DNA can fill the same slot in your arsenal. Be sure to grab a Storm Absolute Power today.

The New Storm Absolute Power is the latest addition to the absolute line. This ball is wrapped in the r2s deep. I drilled mine 45x4x50 this ball is very clean for me with my loft. I touched the surface using a 2000 pad and it really helped see the shape of this ball. I would suggest this ball as a nice step down from A Gem or Magic Gem for when see start to see more friction.
