Storm’s Lightning Blackout utilizes the REX Pearl coverstock and the Warp AI core.  We add some surface to the Lightning Blackout – 3000 Abralon.  The test pattern was a 3-day old league pattern with some open play on it as well.  The pattern actually held up well as the testing went surprisingly well.  We tested the Lightning Blackout up against the Storm The Road.  Both balls use the REX cover.  The Road is a hybrid and the Lightning Blackout is a pearl.  It was clear during our test session that the Lightning Blackout was stronger and handled the oil better, especially on the misses left into the oil.  This could have been the surface helping, but I still think the Lightning blackout was the better option on this test pattern.
