Storm has upped their game with the Storm Match Up Pearl bowling ball. They have changed up the core from the original Match Pearl ball to offer more flare potential and more hook with the Stinger 2.0 core. The idea behind this change was to get more entry angle and better pin carry. This core is wrapped with Storms successful Reactor coverstock.
I am a senior league bowler. In the past I have used many different balls but when I got the Storm Match Up pearl I really saw a big difference in my scores. This ball really works for me. It goes long then snaps into the pocket. It hits hard and keeps the pins low when it hits. I am a low speed high rev tweener and I couldn't be happier with the way it works. Right out of the box I shot a 229, a 205 and. 198. Two weeks ago I shot a 255. My league average is 172.
I love the ball reaction!
This ball is a great addition to the Hotline, if you're looking for a ball for dryer lanes that still has that kick in the back like the high end stuff. You've found it with this ball this ball compared to the Match Pearl is stronger down lane and really drives through the pins. I have a hard time putting this one down once I see the lanes changing. My layout was 5 x 4 1/2 x 30
