Worst Storm ball ever made?
« on: January 30, 2006, 01:01:46 PM »
Besides the plastics, what is the worst Storm ball or balls you've ever used?

For me, Sky Bolt takes the cake. The pearl was awesome (Bolt), but the solid version was horrible with that core. I've rarley seen such a ball that would burnup so quickly off the heads. Short, real short patterns this ball was only good for and had to hook the hell out of it to make it carry well.

I really hated my Storm Triple Xtreme... I'd have to say that ball was a turd.

However, I have to disagree with hawkeye's comment about x-factor particles... I LOVE the Trifecta! But she's an exception to the norm.

Some say the Storm X-Factor XXXTreme was horrible, they also say the Re-Loaded was horrible too. I had the XXX Treme and had awesome success with it, Same with the Re-Loaded. Still use the reloaded but currently redrilled for an earlier roll on sport oils.

Now my worst Storm ball ive ever used is the Storm Flash Point. The Storm Eraser Partical Pearl was decent at 1st. After the 12th game it just sucked! Got a 705 out of it but after that, skid-flippy. More skid then flip.

I liked my Sky Bolt, and I liked my Trauma Response, too.

The worst one I ever had personally was an El Nino. I know it worked well for a lot of people, but not for me. I had two of them and neither worked.

I've heard the old Meteor Storm was a dog but I never got a chance to throw one.

Trauma Recovery was horrible and the Triple Extreme was just disappointing.

Flash Force!!  After loving the Flash Point, I thought this would be a good ball.  Boy was I wrong.
