Revenant
« on: February 11, 2023, 09:00:45 PM »
 The ball that I personally have been waiting on since the Spectre left us way too soon. The Revenant has the same Vector core and R3S Pearl cover on it. I drilled mine 5 x 5 x 3 and let me tell you, once I knocked the Reacta Gloss of this ball, it made the same motion and shape as my Spectre pretty much. The Revenant might be a couple feet longer down lane but the similarities are close. I can see myself using this in multiple situations and different time in blocks. If you were a fan of the Spectre and want it’s replacement that has been missing. Look no farther than the Revenant!

REVENANT
Cover: R3S Coversock with Reacta Gloss Finish
Core: Symmetrical Weightblock
Fragrance: Bear Claw

Review:
When the Spectre first came out it was a must have in every bag. The Revenant is doing the exact same with the R3S cover and the Vector core. For a pearl this ball extremely smooth and controllable for me right out of the box. Getting cleanly through the fronts with a strong continuous motion was exactly what you would expect from this ball. Usually pearls are very snappy and hard for me to control, but when I threw this one I found myself not having a fear of strong snappy backend motion that would be difficult for me to control. With this ball I feel that I have more control when I miss and get better forgiveness when I miss outside. This ball is going to be a staple in bags for years to come, make sure you pick one up!

Storm Revenant review
« Reply #2 on: February 18, 2023, 07:45:59 PM »
The Storm Revenant drilled 4 x 5 x 3 puts the pin just left of the ring finger and CG out. This is a great replacement for the spectre. For high rev bowlers this will be a great ball for league or lanes with high friction.

During league I noticed out the box it was going too long so I went and used a 3000 abralon pad by hand to change the surface and the ball came to life. Changing the surface gave me about 4 more boards to play so don’t be afraid to change the surface on it if needed to fit your game.

If you have the Storm Absolute having the Storm Revenant will be a great 1 2 punch especially for league both similar in motion, control and reaction.

Good comparison would be with the Storm Night Road both being pearls except the Storm Night Road has a much stronger cover (REX pearl) vs the Storm Revenant (R3S pearl). The Storm Night Road for me is 5 boards stronger. The Storm Revenant is smoother down lane so you could technically have both if you need one smooth and one with more back end. Another great piece from Storm!
