Storm DNA Coil
« on: March 12, 2024, 06:45:24 PM »
Storm DNA Coil
Layout: 5 x 4 x 2 Storm Pin Buffer Layout
Rev Rate: 325 rpm, 7 degree of axis tilt, 40 degree of axis rotation
Testing information: 41 foot THS (medium to light volume)
Bowling Center: Fulton Bowling Center
IKON Kegel Machine – Brunswick Anvilane

The Storm DNA Coil utilizes the EXO Pearl Reactive cover along with the Supercoil Core.  The scent is Orange Pineapple Sush.  We tested alongside the Storm Virtual Energy Blackout.  The DNA Coil was a touch earlier than VEBO but a touch weaker overall.  We see the DNA Coil as your step down from your strong ball such as the Storm DNA.  I think you may want to consider a surface change to the DNA Coil.  Try it at box finish then change accordingly.

DNA Coil - Ball Specs
Cover Stock: EXO Pearl Reactive
Finish: Reacta Gloss
Core: Supercoil Core
Layout: 50 x 5 x 40
RG: 2.47
Differential: 0.053
Intermediate Diff: .023


The Storm DNA Coil has a low RG 2.47 with a high differential 0.053. The EXO pearl reactive cover combined with the Supercoil Core creates a clean roll through the front part of the lane with a big backend, and great pin carry.  I tested the DNA Coil on a 43 typical house pattern during league. I was able to stand anywhere from 20 to 32 boards and rolling the DNA Coil out to the right between the 5 and 10 boards with great carry. The DNA Coil is the closet ball reaction I have compared to the Exotic Gem. The DNA Coil will be best on medium oil patterns. This is a great ball for all levels of bowlers.

The New Premier release from Storm Bowling is a Pearl version of the Powerful DNA. The DNA Coil still uses the fast revving Supercoil core but provides more length to create a dynamic motion further down-lane.

I tested the DNA Coil on the long heavy house pattern at my home center. I first tried it in league in the 3rd game to see if it was going to be better when the down-lane friction had developed. I noticed immediately that the early friction on our lane panels caused the ball to want to tip up too soon. The Coil is so responsive that it wanted to get forward a little too quickly with my lower ball speed.

I decided to see what the DNA Coil looked like on fresh oil a few days later and that's when I really got an idea of how strong the reaction could be.. I tested it by first throwing it up the oil line with less rotation. I was very surprised at how well it handled the length of the pattern. I opened the angles a bit as I bowled to see how far I could push it right. Without having to add much rotation the ball kept climbing off the spot down-lane, no easy feat on 30 mils of oil and a 43 ft pattern but it responded beautifully.

I think the ball will best suit people who are very rev challenged or speed dominant. With my ball speed I would reserve my personal use for longer patterns where I need the dynamic move in a small window.
