Word on the street
« on: February 23, 2015, 03:38:11 PM »
I've heard that the word on the street is that Storm are going to be releasing a new ball into the Hot Line at the end of April.

Coverstock: Reactor Hybrid Reactive
Weight Block: Cruiser Core
Ball Colour: Scarlet Red/Platinum Pearl
Fragrance: Paradise Punch

That's all i've managed to scrounge off the net so far, i'm interested to see what the core does on this one and how it will compare to the lights out which personally i loved.

The only word I saw on my street was STOP.

Yes, but I hope it's true. R2S is still a fairly strong cover which meant Storm's weaker balls in the Hot line (Lights Out, Wipe Out, and Punch Out) were still medium oil balls that provided strong reactions and left a big gap between them and the Breeze

This is a great move by Storm. When I was on staff, the low end stuff was wayyyy too strong for the burn, and the Breezes too weak. This is a much needed ball in the lineup.

Yeah it would be a great move if the price is downgraded like the coverstock. But I don't see that happening.

I'm also excited to hear about this move. The Punch Out was way to strong. I was just talking to a buddy of mine about how Storm normally releases equipment in the Hot line around May and how I hoped they would release a ball with a weaker cover/reaction to close the huge gap between the Punch out and Tropical Storm. This is the missing piece that would complete Storms line.

eh, the R2S was used in the Hot Line years ago and reintroduced last year. Since when has coverstock dictated a price?

Saw a real pic on bowl.com, actually was a real photo instead of a website mock up.   Looks like a 'fast' except the red is darker...can't wait for the core decision...its probably something old.

However there is a IQ tour Nano 'LTD' on the approved list for Jan....prolly overseas.

Cruiser core?

Reminds me of a Brunswick Slingshot, with a Hybrid cover.  Brunswick Slingshot not bad in pearl!

Maybe be a very good in between piece!
