Best dry ball imo if u have a fair enuff amount of Rev storm tropical breeze, if you want a lil stronger Prolly the storm ride. In my opinion I tried most of all companies "weakest ball" and only tropical breeze was what I considered weak. Apex was to strong for me ,Columbia 300 freeze etc... In my opinion of course.


Have you tried the Strike King?
I thought it would be strong than my TB Hybrid because it had a lower RG and a higher differential, but I bought both when I was having severe problems. I drilled the TB Hybrid first thinking it would be weaker. I liked it a lot for the dry I was seeing.

Then, I figured I had the SK; so why not drill it. I put the same drilling on it. I brought it one day to league just to do a quick compare with the TB Hybrid. Thank God I brought it: the lanes were fired. The SK went longer with more backend than the TB Hybrid. The TBH was almost burning up; it was that dry! The SK saved my rear end. Though it has more backend, it handled the even lighter oil with finesse. They're now an almost 1-2 pair for me.
Hmm no I never tried strike king but I do have a slingshot not sure if they are the same but now that I think about it the slingshot did go longer. I just recently got another tbh I drilled it this time negative thumb weight kinda looks like a Rico layout for a lefty( I'm righty) and the tbh is all skid no hook which is pretty nice. But yea if strike king and slingshot is the close to same I would also suggest the strike king.

The SK and the Slingshot are nowhere near close. The SK has a stronger, but stilll controllable backend. It was hard to get any backend out of the Slingshot at all. Both were great on dry lanes. FYI I am rev dominant.
Yea I'm also rev dominant and spent many $$$ on trying to find me a dry ball haha. Well not really looking for a dry ball but a ball that goes long and just long on a fresh shot and handles dry

Charlest, it's funny to say that's insulting due to comments you have made on other threads. I guess if you preface statements by saying you are being blunt removes any intent of insult. In all seriousness though to the op if you are speed dominant or matched you might not see a big difference in storm or rotos lower end in my opinion. I used to use storm/roto and switched to motiv. If I were to replace my ascent I would buy a loco.
