The Storm Phaze II is my first ball purchase after my hiatus from the sport. After communicating with Gregg Zicha, we determined that the Phaze II would be a perfect benchmark ball within my arsenal. I placed my order on the first week of January and had it drilled over at Fox Bowl Pro Shop, which is inside Fox Bowl. I have since thrown numerous games and am thrilled with this ball. It has a great midlane read with a strong but predictable back-end flip. If you are looking for a great benchmark ball to add to your arsenal, I highly suggest this ball.
After reviewing my current lineup and looking towards the future, I decided to contact local pro, Steve Jaros, for a new driller. After a short conversation, he suggested that I contact Rich at Players Corner Pro Shop. After meeting with Rich, it was decided that in order to best prepare for the future, I should adjust my lineup and game. After throwing a few games with him overseeing my technique it was decided to redrill and make a surface adjustment to my Phaze II. The updated images are below within the gallery. The new surface of this Phaze II is at 1,000 grit abralon.
