Storm Summit Review
« on: June 20, 2023, 08:38:43 AM »

Storm Summit
Coverstock: TX-23 Hybrid Reactive Coverstock
Core: Centripetal HD Symmetrical with the New A.I. outer core
Factory Finish: 3000 Grit Abralon
Layout: 60x5x30 (my favorite layout)


Length: 38’

Volume: 27.15 mL

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc.): 2.11:1 sport condition


The Summit was a ball I was looking forward to throwing.  I have liked hybrid balls in the past and I needed a new to fill a gap in the bag. 

I was able to play a few different lines with this ball, but my best look was 15 to 5.  The ball got through the heads cleanly and had decent movement off the breakpoint.  I find that this ball does get though the heads cleaner than my Phaze II and has a stronger motion down lane.  The Summit will fit nicely between my Phaze II and my Reality.

Weight Block: Centripetalâ„¢ HD -A.I. (Symmetrical)
Color: Blue/Gold/Silver

If you get to know the background regarding the specifications and technology involved in this bowling ball, then you will understand it has a lot to live up to. The Summit takes a little bit of technology from both the Phaze II and the IQ tour and adds a new cover blend to complete everything. The creation gives one of the strongest shaping symmetrical balls I have personally thrown from SPI. We drilled this ball with our normal layout: tweener, 350-375 revs, 16.5mph, layout of choice is 4x4x2 (pin is above bridge). For us it was everything we thought it would be in that it picks up sooner and more overall than the Phaze 2 while still maintaining that smooth shape of both the Phaze and IQ lines. This ball will be perfect for those wanting a ball to hook off the lane but not spend the money of an asymmetrical piece or those that prefer the way symmetrical pieces shape the lane but also want the ball to hook early. Another ball that this shape reminds us of is the Axiom from a few years ago. Especially because of the logo and blue coloring, this ball could be considered a step up in overall hook and shape. We are looking forward to drilling up a ton of these. Who will be next in line to reach the summit?
