Storm Incite
« on: February 11, 2021, 08:51:45 AM »
Im able to get this ball to the right early and keep my hand soft. Doing this allows the ball to work for me where with other balls I have to really shape it with my hand. One downside about this ball is that it doesnít quite get up the hill when my angles are left and in the puddle. I think this shows that this ball isnít the strongest piece we make but is still smoother than our strong symmetrical balls. High Rev players and slow speed players should be able to use this ball on heavy oil lane conditions and can probably get by with using this ball the first game of league. Speed dominant players and rev challenged players will love this ball. Its not quite as strong as our Proton Physix or Reality but it creates a faster transition off of the dry compared to the Rubicon which will help you create more entry angle and in turn, better pin carry.

The Storm Incite brings a brand new core in the Tensor Core.  The Tensor Core goes with Storm's current theme of cores that are asymmetrical but with less asymmetry than traditional asymmetrical high end balls.  The coverstock is the Hybrid R4S which was found in the original Storm Fight. This ball is very strong and needs oil.  For me it feels like it fits more in the higher end Premier Line than the Master Line as it sits currently.  This ball reminds me of a slightly weaker Omega Crux while still providing the same hybrid characteristics.  I drilled mine with a short pin layout to give me a strong ball to use on a fresh oil pattern while making sure it is not too angular in the back part of the lane.  Although this type of drilling could be tougher to use on house patterns, it will be a staple in my bag for sport patterns to conquer the most control of the pattern.  A more traditional pin up layout will give more of a skid/flip ball reaction and a pin down layout will give a more typical smoother ball reaction.  If you are looking to replace an Omega Crux or never got your hands on one, this could be a good ball for your bag.

The Incite features the not new but first trip stateside R4S hybrid cover and new mild asymmetric Tensor core.  We saw R4S a couple years ago on the Fight and Street Fight, and the short version is that itís a buffed or stronger version of the Phaze 3 cover.  It creates a very strong but very blendy motion on the lane, almost like a slightly quicker NRG or MicroTrax formula. The new Tensor core comes in at a 2.50 RG, .053 differential and an .013 split or intermediate differential in 15 pounds, and it reminds me a lot of cores like the Ikon in the Idols and the Orbital from the Axioms but with a bit more torque.  Very rolly but not really chuggy, strong revving and it rolls in the direction of the rotation.  The total package reminds us a lot of the Omega Crux, and with the Omega getting released right before the Covid crisis and being almost a year old now, the writing may be on the wall, and getting a quasi-replacement in the line before we have another Idol and Emerald situation is probably a good idea.  I gave it the same numbers as the Omega, 8 for hook, 4 for length, and a 4 for backend strength

The Storm Incite features the all-new Tensor Core, which yields an RG of 2.50, Diff or 0.053 and PSA of 0.013, which is wrapped around the Hybrid version of R4S. I drilled mine 5 x 5 x 3.  After throwing this ball for while, I was completely impressed on how much backend shape this ball created for being a mild asymmetrical ball. I havenít found a pattern that at some point this ball wasnít looking good. I was able to throw it straighter on the fresh and then once the lanes started transitioning I kept on moving in and the ball never stopped. The Incite will fill the bridge between the bigger asymmetrical balls and the symmetrical balls because itís the best of both words. It is actually a little stronger with a similar down lane move as an Idol Synergy for me but because 3000 grit finish on the Incite, it picks up the lane about a foot sooner and handles the higher volumes a little bit better. No matter the pattern, I will always have the Incite in my bag!
