Storm is taking the success of the Crux line and continuing it with the Alpha Crux. The asymmetrical Catalyst core is paired with the GI-16 (Game Improvement 2016) solid reactive coverstock which is a follow-up to the GI-15 that was introduced on the Lock bowling ball. This ball was designed to dominate heavy oil!
I find this ball truly amazing. It holds its line through the heaviest of oils. Great ball!!
I purchased this ball for heavy oiled lanes I bowl on. My old ball wasn't cutting it anymore and this one hooks like a ball should. Always good prices on bowling.com and one to two day delivery. It's a great website.
Bought this Alpha Crux 16lbs ball with a maximum top weight for an upcoming bowling sweepers in Gold Coast, Las Vegas (June 2016). Had it drilled by a professional bowler and driller (Jim Starks) perfectly fit my fingers and bowling style. Did practice for six games and bowled a high game of 262 prior going to Vegas. Bowled in Gold Coast for our sweepers using this Storm Alpha Crux and amazingly bowled a perfect 300 on the first game, 267 second game, and 227 on a third game with a total series of 794. With all my winnings, I got my money back buying this ball and still have extra $$ on my pocket. This is my best bowling game I ever had so far. All I can say is that this Storm Alpha Crux rocks and will definitely a good arsenal to have for competition.
This ball is all it's advertised!! That's why I only roll Storm!!! Wonderful pin carry!! A must for anyone who is looking for a ball that can cut through the toughest oil patterns!!
I am a league bowler with a 215 Avg. Love the way the ball rolls into the pocket
Nice smooth roll with a good arc.
It kills on heavily oiled lanes!! I love it. I can pretty much bowl it from anywhere and it'll recover. Beautiful ball and a must have. #2thumbsup
The alpha crux is way overrated for league play. If you work a stroker shot this ball works for 15 games and then is dead. Worst purchase i have ever made. Seems all Storm products need constant resurface weekly to be consistent- i've lost 25 pins sincenmoving from Hammer to Storm
So disappointed. I was throwing the ball so well and it was snapping back beautiful. But then it died.
When new out of the box up to 6-8 months the ball is nothing but spectacular ,on both wood and synthetic lanes will destroy the pins . Then even after proper maintenance and around 4-5 league play- the ball goes dead and no movement and no pin carry. Only ever seen two other storm balls do it- The storm pearl IQ tour(no longer in production) and the Alpha Crux.
Best as starting ball to win game one and intimidate your opponents
Love this ball. I really drives through heavy oil. I'm a senior citizen and need extra help moving through oil and this ball delivers. I highly recommend this ball. Shot 626, 659, and 656 the first 3 times I used it.
As previous reviewers have stated, this ball is exceptional out of the box but the ball does go flat after 40 or so games. I have over 250 games on this ball and I use my food dehydrator on it every week. The dehydrator extracts the oil from the ball without having to resurface. I find that if I do this, especially after bowling heavy oil patterns, the ball performs as expected every time.I am not a heavy cranker which may be why I have to be meticulous about removing the absorbed oil.As for my game, my last ball was a storm XXX, old I know, and I averaged 193 with a 279 high game. I took a 10 year bowling break and upon return I purchased the Alpha Crux. I'm now averaging 215 with multiple 299's, 290's, ect... Haven't gotten that elusive 300, but it is definitely right around the corner.Definitely recommend this ball.
