Dyno-Thane Remedy coverstock?
« on: July 15, 2008, 11:09:32 PM »
(I'm placing this in the Storm forum at the suggestion of another, on the basis that a Storm rep might know the answer.)

I'm 99% sure this ball was made by Storm, 1 year or so after they bought Dyno-Thane.
http://www.bowlingballreviews.com/ball.asp?ballid=39

I believe it is a solid resin, first made around June 2001.
Does anyone know which Storm Coverstock was used in its shell: Accu-Tread, Curelyon, or ______ ????

Thanks.

Are you sure that Storm owned Dynothane? Or were they just pouring the balls for Dynothane. I think it was the latter. I think Phil owned it at this time and it would probably be one of his coverstocks, but I could be wrong.

WHile that may be true, Phil wasn't yet using his own coverstock then. There were no SOakers. It was a Storm coverstock of that I am sure.

Curious, that ball is not even listed as a retired ball on the Dynothane website. I've check around and only come up with descriptions. BTM has something on that ball in the August 2001 edition. Good luck on this one charlest.

just taking a stab here, something along the lines of Super-Flex strength, about the same into date as it, or a Storm Accu-tread similar strength I would think, early version.

Possibly. Hard to tell because most COlumbia solids did not have such a medium high RG. Older DT balls like the COncept XXtra did and it also used a solid, but polished superflex solid coverstock. I have one but only in 15 lb.

I think this is Accu- Tread, but with this 2.55 RG, It goes long before grabbing. The core is quite round so it makes for a fairly rolly, arc-like ball reaction, even with a 4x4 stacked pin over CG drilling.

Monday, 7/21
I just received a reply from Hank Boomershine of Roto-Grip. He was associated with DT at the time of the Remedy. The Remedy had what DT called the SH3 coverstock. Hank's reply:
"The closest Storm resin to the SH3 would have been Curelyon or a slightly milder version of Accu-Tread."

My current ball reaction with a lightly polished Remedy seems to validate this.
