Storm phaze review

The Phaze matched up best for our testers on our medium oil pattern. Tweener and Stroker liked the increased amount of hook they saw over balls such as the Rocket and Optimus. They also liked how the Phaze didn’t jump left when they got it to the dry too early. They were

The Phaze offers new technology inside and out for Storm. It has a new coverstock called AX-16 Pearl which comes out of the box at a 1500 grit polished finish. It also uses a new symmetrical weight block called Velocity. This new design has a low RG of 2.48″ and a fairly high total differential of 0.051″. We found this new cover and core pairing to provide easy length with a controlled breakpoint and back end reaction.

“I have been bowling since I was 5 years old. I’m now 31 and bowl in a competitive league and sport a 220 average. I’ve been a loyal and dedicated reader of BTM for many years. It’s my go-to source for information about skills, strategies, and, most importantly, ball reviews. I fancy myself pretty well-versed in the world of bowling, but each month there’s always something new that I learn. The authors are also very articulate and very accessible. Tremendous compliment to Phil Regan. I left a comment on his article and he emailed me! I was able to ask him some questions and he was very appreciative and helpful. I can say more about BTM if given the chance. I would surely run out of space in this box. I love BTM and always will.”

The Phaze III is the highly anticipated follow-up to the popular Phaze II in Storm’s Master line. The Phaze II is loved for its versatility, especially on tougher lane conditions, and the Phaze III’s motion complements it nicely. The low RG, high differential Velocity core design is identical in the three Phaze bowling balls. The Phaze III’s R3S Hybrid coverstock from the Intense Fire comes out of the box at a 1500 grit polished finish to push this ball farther down the lane than the Phaze II, while offering a bigger and stronger move off the dry. The quicker response to the friction is not surprising from the polished hybrid cover, but the testers were pleasantly surprised with the amount of total hook this ball creates.

All three testers saw the best reaction on the fresh medium oil pattern. Stroker saw a difference in shape, but he lined up almost on top of where he was playing this pattern with the Phaze II. He started his ball on board 15 off his hand, crossing 11 at the arrows and using eight as his breakpoint. Cranker started near 30 with his laydown point, crossing between the third and fourth arrows while using board 10 as his breakpoint.
