The Storm Mix is my go to tool for spare conversions. Of course, spares are very important when bowling on tougher conditions. Without a good spare ball, you might bite the dust on the corners and difficult conversions.
The Sure Lock was on my hit list for quite some time. Since I have a lower rate, I need all that a ball can give on higher volume or longer patterns. This ball came highly recommended from many people, and it proudly sits in the number one spot in my bag. I will follow through will more details as soon as I get more familiar with how it works.
After getting back into bowling this past January, I retired a large number of the balls within my collection. The only two that I did not discard are the Virtual Gravity and the Flash Point. I initially used this ball for breakdown based conditions back in high school, which was about eight years ago. After visiting Rich at Player's Corner Pro Shop, it was decided that this ball should be brought back for experimentation and general use.
I have two Storm Tournament bags on hand to carry around the necessary equipment to take on the lanes. The more aggressive equipment is within the black bag, while transitioning equipment is in the red bag.
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.
