Storm Phaze
« on: February 25, 2016, 06:23:45 AM »
I have the Phaze and was wondering if anyone's was not tacky like the advertising said. The surface on mine is very slick, no way anyone is palming this one!

Hank Boomershine told me to just lightly break the shell with 3000 abralon by hand. Then use a ball cleaner. Wow! It totally woke the ball up.

Mine was tacky out of box, I usually change surface on a new ball. I decided to roll it OOB and WOW, this ball is a really good piece. I have really enjoyed this ball so far.

The one I threw originally had a p4? weight hole, high VAL angle (pin down), and about 5.5 from my PAP seemed to be a little strange. After it was redrilled to have a lower VAL angle and keeping the weight hole (putting the hole around the p3 position) made it roll a lot better! Being someone that was a big fan of particle balls in the past (HPD, Saw Blade, Second Dimension, Buzzsaw LRG), 2000 gives me that kind of motion except a little stronger due to modern technology. I haven't thrown it polished yet with this layout change, but I will once I have my own. Whatever issue cover wise seems to have been cleared up after the first few batches.

Depending on specs, I can definitely see that as an option especially with surface. If the shot allows you to play up the gutter or in the track area, it will probably shape really well (again especially with surface and the proper layout).
