Balls with Same Hook Potential, Lane Conditions and Coverstock as the Storm Hy-Road X:

Storm Hy-Road X

Ten years after the release of the original Hy-Road the tradition continues with the Storm Hy-Road X. This ball was designed with the modern game and conditions in mind by offering both power and reaction. This bowling ball takes the same Inverted Fe2 Technology core found in the other Hy-Road balls and pairs it with the R2X Solid Reactive coverstock. The R2X coverstock with a 1500 grit polished finish is a little more aggressive than its predecessor but it doesn't react too early or too late. This ball offers the perfect amount of power and smoothness.

Question:

What would the difference be between the hyroad x and the hyroad nano?

9/17/2018 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Hyroad X will be more aggressive than the Hyroad Nano, for the lane conditions on the Hyroad X is medium-heavy oil and the Nano is only for medium oiled lane conditions. So the HyRoad X will be more aggressive.

Question:

Does the HyroadX hook as much as the Code X or Code Red and how does it compare to the New Brunswick Quantum Bias ???

10/29/2018 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The key difference between the HyRoadX and all of the other balls mentioned is that the HyRoadX is a mid performance ball for medium to lighter oil and all of the other balls are high performance balls for heavier oil. This would mean the HyroadX is not as strong as the other balls on this list and would be much less hook potential.

Question:

What is the difference between this and the Hustle ink? It has the same cover and performance level so what’s the difference between the 2

4/2/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Looks like the only difference between the two will be the lane conditions. The Hustle Ink is for light oil only and the Hy-Road X is for medium-light oil.

Question:

I was a fingertip bowler. I went back to convention. I am female that can bowl fast and slow. The ball I have now, has no hook at all. I would like something that will hook. Nothing too aggressive. I also had a pinkie hole drilled if that makes any difference.

5/30/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball will react sooner than a pearl would. This will break shorter than a pearl or hybrid would. This ball will have a hook to it but it will hook early.

Answer:

We do not offer the switch grip drilling option at this time. If you wanted to get that kind of drilling you could decline our drilling option and wait to receive the ball so you can take it locally for the switch grip inserts to be inserted.

Question:

What is the difference between the storm by road x and the storm electrify hybrd

9/5/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Storm Hy-Road X will be a little stronger weight block and cover so it will have more hook potential. While they both say medium to light oil then Hy-Road will work better in medium oil than the Electrify Hybrid and the Electrify Hybrid will work better in lighter oil than the Hy-Road X.

Question:

What is the difference with the Hy-road X and the All-road?

11/5/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Both balls have the same weight block but they have a different coverstock and finish out of the box. The Hy-Road X has a solid cover which normally reads early than a hybrid cover like the All-Road has. However, the Hy-Road X has a polished cover to give it more length compared to the 4000 grit finish on the All-Road. So the reaction will be very similar but you get a slightly later reaction on the Hy-Road X due to the polish and it will be very smooth on the backend and the All-Road reads a little earlier.

Question:

Hi, looking to by my 16 yr old son a ball with a little more hook, medium performance for league play only. He bowls 2 handed, is needing an upgrade, looking for medium performance, light to med oil, is this or the Storm Electrify Hybrid a better choice?

2/6/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Both options are rated for medium to lighter oil but the Hy-Road X will have a stronger hook potential. With him being a 2 handed bowler, he may be able to get a lot of revs on the ball so the Hy-Road could even work in some heavier oil for him if he has a very high rev rate and he has an average to lower ball speed. If he has a higher ball speed and higher rev rate then the will be able to use this in medium and some lighter oil conditions.

Question:

Would the Hyroad Pearl be a good step down from the Hyroad X. I currently have the Hyroad Max, Hyroad X, and the Storm All Road?

4/6/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

If you needed a step down from the HyRoad X you may want to move to an Electrify Pearl. This will give you a more noticeable difference from the bowling balls that you already have. The Hy-Road Pearl will be a little longer than the other Hy-Roads you have but it is still about the same strength.
