Storm Match Pearl

The Storm Match Pearl is a go to ball when you don't need a high performance ball with tons of technology and reaction. The medium RG and flare potential of the Stinger Core allow this ball to work with a variety of styles. If you are looking to control your roll pattern and your ball reaction then this core shape will help. The Reactor Pearl Reactive coverstock has been on Storm bowling balls for over 10 years and has proven itself again and again. The coverstock formula on this ball provides durability and backend reaction. This ball may just be a Match made in heaven (or Utah).

Pros:
Loks good, God length, Very angular, Smells good
Cons:
Stronger than I anticipated
Best Uses:
Meduim Oil
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very good ball

I drilled it 50x4x70 and it snaps like no other ball I've thrown to date. I had my IQ Tour Pearl drilled the same way and the Match Pearl snaps even harder than the IQ. This really caught me off guard. I found that I need to keep the speed up in order to throw this ball.

Dislikes:

I drilled both the Match Pearl and the Match. I looked forward to these two balls to help fill a hole in my bag between my Ride and my IQ Tour 30. The match Pearl is a great choice when the Tour30 becomes too strong and starts to burn up. Very clean in the heads a much more control down lane.

I drilled my Match pearl 3.5 by 4.5 was the same layout I used on my Phaze. This is a great choice to add to your bag if your looking for something for dryer lanes and you still want that pop in the backend.

Question: What does the notation about 12 and 13 lb. balls mean? No curve potential?

6/13/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hi Bob, the notation means that the core is different, and it is likely going to hook less than the 14-16lbs.

Question: How does the match pearl ball work on sports shots

7/4/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello! It really just depends on how much oil is on the lanes and, even more, on how you bowl. If you would like, you can give us a call and someone here can help you find the right ball for you.

Question: Is the match pearl a ball that can be used for crankers on dry lanes

7/11/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello Nick! It is difficult to make blanket yes or no answers to things like this. It's going to depend on how you bowl and what you want to see the ball do exactly. In general, the ball is meant to handle dry-medium conditions, so for straight dry conditions and because you're a cranker, this ball might be a touch too strong.

Question: I am a bowler with a lot of hand. Iamlooking for a ball i can used on dry conditions and still get length and backend. What do you recommend out of the storm line?

In general, the ball is meant to handle dry-medium conditions, so for straight dry conditions and because you're a cranker, this ball might be a touch too strong. You might want to try something like the Storm Joy Ride or maybe even venture into the Storm Tropical line.

Question: I am a straight down and in bowler, and looking for a strong back-end ball. Do you prefer the match pearl over tne match or does it matter

8/4/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello Al Rob! The Match Pearl should go longer and break later than the Match, so I would tend to lean towards that one for you.

8/4/2016 - By

Question: Hello im coming frm a storm punch out and im a down and in player which ball would u say would replace the punch out ball that gives me lenth n backend on normal dry to medium house shots

8/16/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello Brandon! I would say this ball would work well for what you're talking about.

8/17/2016 - By

Question: How is the Match Pearl all that different from the IQ Tour Pearl? Same 1500 finish. The RG and Diffs are very very close, and the lighter Match balls appear to use the same core as the older IQ Tour Pearl. So if I had a Match drilled the same as my IQ TP, how would it be better/worse?

8/22/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Great question! The coverstock on the Match Pearl will be significantly less aggressive than the IQ Tour Pearl. So the Match Pearl would hook a good bit less than the IQ Tour Pearl.

8/22/2016 - By

Question: Thanks for the quick answer. Looks like the Match is not the ball I'm looking for. Suggestions? I want a ball that performs like the IQ Tour Pearl, only more. I guess I just don't have much hand; my IQ TP slides nicely, and then mostly just flairs to the inside while rolling straight, never actually turning the corner. What to do? Get a Storm 30 (the new IQ) and use an extreme drilling pattern, or is there a ball out there like an IQ TP on mega-steroids?

8/22/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: I would recommend the Storm IQ Tour 30 as the closest replacement for the IQ Tour Pearl. If you're looking for something that goes long and breaks late, but is more aggressive, I would probably say to go with the Storm Snap Lock.
