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.

Triple Extreme was absolutely horrible, even after several tweaks of the coverstock.  I actually felt bad selling it to a guy for 50 Bucks in excellent shape.

Ace is up there, Diablo, Vertigo, etc., lol.  For being loyal to Storm, I've sure hated a lot of them recently.  I actually liked my Triple Xtreme, Shock Trauma, and Fear Factor, believe it or not.  The Shock is actually one of my favorite balls.  Lol, legend, you just don't know how to use the Super, it is uuuuuber.

Fear Factor, Super Charge, XXXtreme, and  X-Factor Deuce. I love storm stuff just like any company some good balls and some garbage

Sky Bolt for me was a major dog.

Loved my Meteor Storm, however.

For me, the worst Storm Ball I've ever owned was the Barbed Wire.  This was supposed to be Storm's light-oil ball but I never found a condition that it worked on.  It had the strangest roll I've ever seen... very late rolling ball with an inconsistant move to the pocket.  On dry it would overreact on a down and in shot, but it would hit the pocket weak from the inside.

Forest Fire Storm.  Wierdest rolling ball I've ever had and hit like a wet sponge.
Actually, other than the Bolt and Eraser, most Storm balls I ever threw might qualify for inclusion in this topic.

I would have to say the Sky Bolt was the worst one I ever threw...but I can't believe there are a couple votes for the ReLoaded!?  That is one of my all time fav's from Storm!

And thats why I no longer use strom. They just dont match up to well with my style. I still have a couple Storms and im still using 1 of the 2 that i liked alot from storm, and its the reloaded for sport conditions.

I know my reloaded was okay for me a bit more arc-y than my original x-factor however the cover on it died rather quickly.

The triple Xtreme is a HUGE peice of DUNG! Also, I just punched up an Ace and its too early to tell but, I think I dislike it!

Just goes to show that everyone does not match up with every
ball made by a manufacturer. I shot very well with my Trauma
Response but really struggled with my Trama ER
