Storm Fast Pitch
« on: November 16, 2020, 12:53:23 PM »
The Fast Pitch really redefines old school urethane. For me, the Pitch Black and Pitch Purple have a pretty defined shape downlane that wasn't prevalent in the old school urethane days. The Fast Pitch, unlike the PB and PP, is more like old school urethane. It reads early and bails hard downlane. On the shorter patterns this ball will help any player control the pocket with ease. The Fast Pitch, for me is by far the weakest urethane ball out of the three. If you're looking for that old school read and bail shape that carries the wall shots and light mixers, look no further than the Fast Pitch.

The Fast Pitch features the Controll XL solid urethane coverstock and the Tour Block core.  The coverstock comes in right between the Pitch Black and Pitch Purple, with a look thatís very reminiscent of old school 80s urethane.  Itís not as early and slow as the Black, but not as long and quick as the Purple, giving you a look that fits that gap.  The Tour Block was used in the Fever Pitch and is basically the Hyroad core with the internal ball removed, this gives the ball an even higher RG at 2.61, but a differential on the low side of medium at .030 in 15 pounds, and the result is a ball that controls the lane and acts like balls like the Blue Hammer of yesteryear.  Urethane balls are hard to rate because they do hook quite a bit, but are so early and smooth that they donít visually read like resin balls.  With 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give the Fast Pitch a 5 on hook, a 2 on length, and a 2 on backend strength.
