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.

Friend of mine just KILLED with this thing!
Brilliance realizes it has limits, ignorance does not.

Never argue with an idiot.
