Storm Omega Crux

Storm has brought back the Catalyst Core in the Storm Omega Crux high performance bowling ball. This popular core has been known for its unmatched power, increased entry angle, as well as allowing more room for drilling error due to dynamic asymmetrical design and vertical cavity technology. The GI-20 Pearl coverstock used in this ball stands for Game Improvement 2020. This special coverstock was specifically designed to improve performance in the modern difficult bowling environment. The GI-20 Pearl Reactive coverstock used on the Omega Crux is best used on heavier oil conditions and has a really good skid, hook and then roll reaction.

Question:

How does this ball compare to the crux prime?

1/25/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

They have the same weight block but the Omega has a pearl cover to give it more length while the Prime had a solid cover to react earlier. The length is really the only difference.

Question:

I start with the crux prime on fresh oil and then switch to my crux pearl. Would the omega crux be a replacement for the pearl crux?

2/8/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

While the Omega Crux has a pearl cover and this does give it some length, it has a duller finish out of the box and it would read earlier on the lanes than the Crux Pearl which was a polished finish. The Omega would fit in between the Crux Prime and Crux Pearl in terms of performance and length.

Question:

i have an Alpha Physix .. does this roll much different ?

2/10/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This will give you more length than the Alpha Crux because it has a pearl cover and the Alpha was a solid cover. They are both rated for heavier oil and give a very strong hook potential.

Question:

How does this ball relate to the physix's? Phaze 3?

2/21/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This would have a very similar reaction to the Physix. They have the same finish out of the box but the Physix has a hybrid cover while the Omega has a pearl coverstock. The Pearl cover will give the Omega a little more length but not much difference. The Phaze 3 would be weaker overall and it is more suited for medium oil. Also the polished finish of the Phaze III makes it go even longer than the Omega.

Question:

I have the Ebonite Choice solid, do this ball can give me more length on the line?

2/25/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This will have more length than the Choice Solid due to the Pearl coverstock on the Omega and also due to the slightly smoother surface finish at 3000 grit versus the Choice Solid which was 2000 grit.

Question:

I have the Crux Prime for heavier oil but need to replace my Crux (original) and Lights out which I use for drier conditions. What would you recommend to replace them?

3/7/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Since you have a Crux Prime for you Heavier oil ball you may want to get something like the Storm Phaze III to work in medium oil and then something like the Storm Match Up Hybrid as your light oil ball. This could cover most of your conditions.

Question:

With this bowling ball being asymmetrical, would it be better suited for high or low ball speed? And high or lower rev?

3/15/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

If your rev rate matches your speed then you should be fine. Also, if you are a rev dominant player then this would also work fine because it does get good length down the lane before reacting. If you have a high ball speed and a low rev rate there may be better options that can start hooking earlier on the lanes to give you more hook potential.

Question:

how does this ball compare to the ufo?

3/28/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Omega Crux will give you more length on the lanes than the UFO because the Omega has a pearl coverstock while the UFO has a solid coverstock. Also the Omega has a slightly smoother finish out of the box to help with the length. They both will have a strong hook potential.

Question:

how does this compare to the astro physix

4/23/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

While both balls have a pearl coverstock, the Omega has a duller finish while the Astrophysix has a polished finish so the Omega Crux will read earlier on the lanes while the Astrophysix will read later on the lanes.

Question:

I have a stroker style of throwing...would I see much difference with the omega vs Astro PhysiX on lanes with more oil

6/4/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

There will be a difference in the length because the Omega starts to grip and read more in the midlane and the AstroPhysix goes longer. It would still be a noticeable difference for a stroker.

Question:

Which is stronger astro physix or omega crux

6/4/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Omega Crux will have a stronger overall hook. The AstroPhysix will go long on the lanes and have a sharper backend hook but the Omega Crux can start to grip a little earlier on the lanes in the midlane and it will be able to cover more boards because it starts earlier.

Question:

Would the Omega Crux be good for someone who's ball speed is 16 MPH but rev rate is not high

7/1/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This should not be an issue for someone with your ball speed and rev rate. The duller finish will help the ball to get grip in the midlane but the pearl coverstock helps the ball react more in the backend. It is rated for heavier oil conditions so if you have a lower rev rate you could probably even use this for medium to heavy oil.

Question:

whats the main difference between the omega crux and the jackal ghost... thank you

9/3/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Some key differences would be the Omega Crux has a pearl coverstock and the Jackal Ghost has a solid cover. Also the weight block on the Jackal Ghost reads a little earlier so the Jackal Ghost will read more in the midlane and the Crux will go a little longer before reacting. They are still pretty comparable in overall hook and performance but just a slight difference in length.

Question:

How does this ball compare to the roto grip wreck em?

11/9/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This is going to be drastically different than the Wreck-em. The Wreck-em was a mid performance ball for medium to light oil and it had a pearl cover and polished finish to go long on the lanes. The Omega Crux is a high performance for heavy oil conditions with a similar pearl cover but dull finish to read earlier on the lanes.

Question:

I have stroker style 14 mph I bowl on THS FRESH. I start with my Omege Crux then change to my Axiom I do not have MEDIUM performance light oil ball in my arsenal unless you count my Pitch Black which is my spare ball.. almost never miss a single pin with it. Your thoughts on this strategy and what ball to add in the medium strength for light oil ? the new Venom ball looks interesting. thanks for any advise you may have ..

11/18/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question? https://www.bowling.com/products/roto-grip-hustle-pbr.htm" />

Answer:

There are not a lot of options when it comes to a light - medium oil ball with a sanded finish. It seems like that is a reaction you like considering the Omega Crux and Axiom both have a sanded 3000 grit finish. There is a ball from Roto Grip that may be a good option though. It would give you something for lighter to medium oil and has a similar finish to the balls you currently use so it should be an easy transition. Here is a link to the ball: https://www.bowling.com/products/roto-grip-hustle-pbr.htm

Question:

How does it compare to the intense fite

11/24/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball will have a smoother reaction on the lanes than the Intense Fire. While the Omega Crux has a pearl coverstock which would normally give you more length than a hybrid coverstock like the Intense Fire has, the Omega Crux comes out of the box with a 3000 grit finish which helps it start to read earlier on the lanes and have a smoother reaction than the polished finish on the Intense Fire.

Question:

Would the Omega Crux be a good ball for State Tournament

3/4/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball is designed for heavy oil conditions so if the tournament conditions are expected to be heavy oil then this could work well.

Question:

I rolling back up ball from the left side of the lane I always have a problem with have a problem with heavy oil on my side Must be it’s between 10 and 12 miles an hour do you think this ball is too aggressive for me.

6/10/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball is designed to work in heavier oil conditions so it would be able to help since the left side of the lane tends to keep the oil on the lane longer. Also, the pearl cover can help so the ball does not over react too early on the lanes and reacts more toward the backend. This will match up well if you have an average to slower ball speed.

Question:

what would be a good complementary ball to the Omega Crux, to carry in the bag?

7/30/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Omega Crux is designed to work in heavier oil conditions so if you wanted a ball to use when the lanes start to break down to more medium oil you could go with a Phaze 3 or even a Hy-Road Pearl which would give you a little more length and work well in medium oil.
