Storm Dark Code

The research lab at Storm has been busy and discovered a unique coverstock by combining two proven coverstocks into one. The coverstock on the Storm Dark Code is a combination of the R2S and NeX to create the ReX Pearl Reactive coverstock, also known as the "Reactor Extreme". This coverstock along with the RAD4 core provides the ideal amount of mid lane roll and backend reaction as well as awesome pin carry. This ball has something to offer any style of bowler.

Question:

compare dark code to the trend please thanks

5/12/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Dark Code will have a stronger weight block to give this more hook potential than the Trend. They have similar length with both having a pearl coverstock finished at 1500 grit polish but the weight block will give the Dark Code more flare.

Question:

How does dark code differ from the code red

5/18/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The only difference between the Code Red and the Dark Code would be the coverstock. They have the same weight block and both were finished at 1500 grit polished finish. The Dark Code has a new ReX Pearl Cover while the Code Red had a R2S Hybrid cover. The new ReX Pearl cover is a blend of the R2S and the NeX cover which makes this a little stronger reaction to handle a little more oil.

Question:

How does this bowling ball compare to the Storm Hyroad X

5/18/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball will be much stronger than the Hy-Road X. This ball is a high performance ball for heavier oil conditions and the Hy-Road X was a mid performance ball more for medium to lighter oil conditions.

Question:

Will this ball be good to pair with my Hy-Road Max?

5/31/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Hy-Road Max is a duller finished solid ball and is a mid performance ball for medium oil. The Dark Code is a high performance ball for medium to heavier oil and the ball has a pearl coverstock and polished finish. If you like the reaction you get from your Hy-Road Max but you need something stronger for when the lanes are heavier oil I would suggest getting another solid ball that is more suited for heavier oil like the Storm Axiom or Storm Proton Physix. They have a similar reaction in the midlane with a continuous hook like the Max.

Question:

What is drilling protection

6/9/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Drilling protection is an extra option which will help you if the ball chips or cracks while you are having it drilled at your local proshop. It will help you by getting your drilling cost reimbursed as well as the ball being replaced if the ball meets the drilling protection criteria. To see more about this click the "?" beside the Drilling Protection option.

Question:

compare dark code to rstx1 please ... thanks

6/14/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Dark Code will go longer on the lanes to have a sharper backend than the RST X-1. However, because the RST X-1 reads a little earlier that will help it have a stronger overall hook and also help it work better in heavy oil while the Dark Code can work better across medium to heavy oil conditions.
