Storm Super Nova Review
« on: September 10, 2022, 04:04:31 PM »
The Storm Super Nova is the newest ball in the premier line. This ball has the same coverstock as the Proton Physix and Axiom. This ball reminds me of a 900 Global Reality just not as responsive. The Super Nova gave me a look that was Cleaner than other big balls and still responded off the dry vs burning up like other big solids.  This ball will be able to be used on a variety of conditions and patterns. This ball is about 4-5 stronger than the Nova and has a better response off of the friction. The Get yours at your local storm VIP pro shop.

The Storm Super Nova features the NeX Solid cover, Ignition core, and comes at 2000-grit out of box. Out of box this ball was a bit too strong for our house pattern and would burn up too quickly. I reset the surface to 3k and let it lane shine for a couple games. This is where the ball really looks the best for me. I compared this ball to the original Nova and it is earlier and a bit smoother down lane. It forces me left about 3-5 boards compared to the Nova on our house shot. I had a chance to throw the Super Nova on a 44ft/28mL sport pattern and it looked really great. I was able to move right or move in and get to the pocket with no issues. I threw the Nova on there as well but it was just a bit too sharp off the spot or had some issues getting back to the pocket.. The Super Nova is really going to shine on higher volume sport or house shots.

Super Nova – WWRD 9/23/2022

Storm’s new Super Nova is an Asymmetrical Solid piece that is good for Heavy lane conditions.  PAP is 5 5/16 R 1 3/16 Up. Fragrance is Fruit Pop. Drilled it with the Pin above the Ring, CG kicked out 1”, and MB 1” from the Thumb.   Out of Box motion was good length with continuous backend motion through the pins.  This piece was 2-4 more than the Proton Physix, and 3-5 more than the Infinite PhysiX.  If you are looking for a Heavy oil piece this is the one to get

Storm Super Nova features the Ignition Core that was found in the Nova, RG 2.49, 0.052 Diff and PSA 0.019, and is wrapped around the NEX Solid cover and finished at 2000 grit. I drilled mine 5 x 5.5 x 2 which is also the same way I drilled my Nova. I have thrown this ball a couple times now and I’ve been really impressed with the reaction of this ball. I first used it at the RPI Regional the last 3 games of qualifying and actually blended out the entire lane. Next time I threw it on the house shot and I was still super impressed because it didn’t burn up and plaque nor did it overreact when I got it to the dry super quick. This ball will be a very versatile piece in my bag because I will be able to use it after my Proton Physix on longer patterns and those medium length heavier volume patterns. To sum up this versatile ball, I would say a stronger Phaze 2 type of reaction.

Storm Super Nova
Layout: 5 x 4 x 2 Storm Vector Layout
Rev Rate: 325 rpm
Testing information: 41 foot THS (medium to light volume)
Bowling Center: Fulton Bowling Center
Kegel Machine – Brunswick Anvilane

The Storm Super Nova utilizes the new Ignition Core and the NEX Solid reactive cover.  We tested against the original Storm Nova, which was a hybrid.  The Storm Super Nova is impressive.  It is quickly becoming one of my favorites the more I throw it.  I like the versility and how easy it is to control the pocket with it.  The Super Nova was a touch earlier than the Nova but still had continuation on the backend.  The Super Nova will be my No. 1 (first ball used on heavy oil) in my 6-ball arsenal.  #Stormnation
