Doesnít make too much sense to release a new belmo line ball overseas only.


They released a few timeless balls overseas, Timeless Tour and Timeless Space to name some, and there was more recently a ProMotion Tour.

Yes i get that, what I meant by that was it doesn't make sense to introduce a NEW belmo line overseas.  its a signature ball, the first one should be a stateside.
Itís not a new line. A new name sure but itís still the Piston core from the PRO-Motion, which unlike with motiv, which I have never understood, means they are the same line.

Timeless and the Drive had the same core and those werenít the same line, if I recall

Same line

well i stand corrected.

Although i think the namesake would still hold true in this aspect, even if it is the same line.  If Belmo's name is on the ball, and its the first ball to have that name, i'd still imagine it would be a US release.  and the other balls would follow would be overseas.  Similar to the pro-motion tour or the countless overseas timeless'.


Side note, are there any versions of the drive that are overseas? i never saw any but don't look that hard.

Storm Trend
Layout Ė 55 x 5 x 25
So far this ball is the best Belmo ball to date!  When selecting a layout I try to start with one I know but also will work when this ball is best used.  This ball being the same cover as the HyRoad Pearl and having a stronger core, my guess is I will use this in the middle of blocks when Iím trying to create angle and shape it.  I personally had to knock the shine off of it with a 2000 pad.  For me this ball is very clean and has a continuous arc down lane.  It is definitely not a flip or snap motion, very controllable!  This is a must have for higher friction surfaces and medium to drier lane conditions!

The Trend is the newest ball from the Belmo and Storm Collaboration and unlike some of the previous releases, this ball does not disappoint!  As a fan of more rolly cores, I enjoyed the Pro-Motion quite a bit but couldn't find a great step down once that ball got a little lazy down lane.  Where the Phaze 3 was not strong enough and the Astrophysix was too strong, the Trend fits perfectly in that gap!  The strength and reliability of the R2S coverstock along with the Piston Core give a strong yet unique reaction that Storm has not seen in quite some time.  No longer will I have that gap of over under ball reaction when I still need a strong core.  For all of you who feel that sometime the Phaze 3 just isn't strong enough in the oil, the Trend is the go to ball.  I will be using this ball a lot on sport patterns and other patterns where the oil volumes are higher than typical league.
