Storm Lightning Blackout Review
« on: May 17, 2024, 11:46:25 AM »
The Storm Lightning Blackout comes with the ReX Pearl Reactive cover, Warp A.I. Core, and reacta gloss finish. This ball has a higher RG at 2.53 and lower diff at 0.029. This ball is clean down the lane and will need some friction. It will not be a ball thrown on the fresh as it will need some lane break down to really shine. I compared this ball to the VEBO and it is a good ball or two down from it. The LBO may be a step down but for me, I feel as if it would be two balls down as it just does not have enough core to be a ball down. The LBO looks good when the lanes break down or there is a lot of friction when you need a clean ball to get down the lane. Another great release in the Storm line!

Hey, and welcome back as we have a great one for you from Storm Bowling Products the Lightning Blackout! If you're a fan of these reviews, first and foremost, I want to thank you for hopefully enjoying these reviews and videos and hope it gives you some information to take back when looking to get your next bowling ball.

From the previous reviews and videos of the Hustles, I've mentioned being more speed dominant than rev dominant, the weaker equipment tends to give me a really bad over-under reaction but with this ball, I did not really see it unless it was human error. The Lightning Blackout video starts off with the ball hitting very heavy so I moved 2-1 and the ball looked really good from that area. Once again, balls lower than the mid-performance balls usually don't fare too well for someone like me who is more up the back of the ball as the ball is forward most of the way down the lane. As you can see this ball was something that moved left which again is something I don't tend to do a lot as I usually focus staying within bigger balls. This ball has changed my mind a little bit and really can't wait to work over the summer dialing in those Hustles, The Road, and the Lightning Blackout. I am definitely going to keep at its box finish and manipulate a few balls around this one and really define the bag and I definitely see this ball being a staple in the bag for some time to come.
