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. This ball can recover for almost anyplace on the lane.

Omega Crux review by Tommy Gollick

The Omega Crux is a factory sanded pearl ball with a cover called GI-20 in the premier line of Storm bowling balls. The Omega comes from the factory at a 3000 grit abralon finish, and has a color combination of white, copper, and graphite. The numbers in 15 lb weighted balls are 2.50 Rg, 0.052 diff, with an intermediate diff of 0.017. The Catalyst core is the same core used in all the previous Crux balls.
I drilled the Omega Curx with a layout of 5 x 3.5 x 2.5. This layout creates a lot of motion in the late mid-lane, toward the end of the oil pattern. I went with this layout to use this ball to open up softer backends, and lanes that aren't really crisp at the breakpoint. Comparing the Omega Crux with my 4 x 4 x 2.5 Crux Prime, the Omega is a lot more defined through the back part of the lane. The Prime is good when the backends are fresh, and the Omega is great to go to when the backends tighten up. The Omega starts up a few feet later than the Prime. Both of these layouts seem to work a little better when there is some built in area in the pattern. So far, the Omega has been really good on 41-43 foot patterns, with a nice crown shape built in. The GI-20 cover on the Omega seems to hold the surface fairly well.
I like the Omega Crux. I can see this ball as being user friendly for most any bowler, provided they use the right layout and the ball on the right pattern. Rev dominant bowlers will get use from this ball on heavier volumes of oil and won't need super strong layouts to get motion. Matched rev rate to ball speed players will be able to use this ball on the widest range of patterns, just drill to flare accordingly. Speed dominant players will want to use stronger layouts, and should see a ball that still has some change of direction for them. Thank you for reading my review of the Omega

Omega Crux

Introducing the 5th in the Crux line the Omega Crux with the legendary catalyst core. This omega also features the new Gi-20 pearl core. This ball gets done lane with ease and very strong reaction backend but keeps a strong punch through the pins. This ball is great on the fresh and really handles the transition well. I'm loving this ball right now from house shots to sport shots its got a place in my bag

Storm Omega Crux

Storm Omega CruxLayout: 4 X 4 X 2 Storm Vector LayoutRev Rate: 325 rpm, 7 degree of axis tilt, 40 degree of axis rotationTesting Information: 41-foot THS (medium to light volume)Kegel Machine - Brunswick AnvilaneThe Storm Omega Crux (OC) is a new release in the Premier line. The Premier line has a long history of producing some of the best releases to date. The OC fits the bill. The OC utilizes the Catalyst Core, the same core used throughout the Crux series. The Catalyst Core is wrapped in the new GI-20 pearl reactivecoverstock. I have been able to use the OC on some senior house pattern tournaments and have been impressed. The recovery and carry have been the two most impressive features. A lot of balls have the recovery but don't carry. The OC possesses both qualities. During one recent senior tournament, I had 5 different instances when the messenger flew across the pin deck in the air and took out the 10-pin. Wow! I am not even a high rpm guy. The OC will be able to be used as your 1A or 1B tournament ball. I don't see it being effective late in a tournament unless you shine it, which I have seen and it looks good shined. The OC is a longer, stronger version of the Crux Prime in my opinion.Continue to bowl up a Storm!Visit your local Storm VIP Pro Shop to order yours.#Stormnation

What is the ball action (long and snap,etc)

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.

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.
