Customer Questions & Answers  |  Reviews

Question: how does ball compare to motiv forza

3/27/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello! The Storm Optimus Solid will be stronger than the Motiv Forza. The Optimus is designed for medium-heavy oil and the Forza is designed for medium oil.

3/29/2016 - By

Question: Would you say this ball performs the same as the motiv revolt vengeance?

7/20/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello! No, the Optimus will start hooking earlier on the lane and will be more aggressive than the Vengeance overall.

7/20/2016 - By

Question: Can you roll a straight ball ?

7/25/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello Lynda! I wouldn't recommend this for throwing straight ball. Performance balls like this are really meant for being able to hook the ball. I would recommend purchasing a plastic/spare ball for that. You can find those here: https://www.bowling.com/shopping/all/bowling-balls/plastic-balls

7/25/2016 - By

Question: has anyone tried compound or polish to see the reaction

8/12/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello! Adding a polish to this ball would make it travel further down the lane before it starts hooking and will make it less aggressive overall. The ball will have more of a snap on the backend instead of the more continuous arc it has out of the box.

8/12/2016 - By

Question: Is this ball good for slow speed bowlers

8/31/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello Happy! That depends on a lot of different factors, so you might want to give us a call and talk to someone here about getting some recommendations. In the most general way, I typically wouldn't recommend this ball for bowlers with slower ball speed.

Question: how does this ball compare with the iq tour edition?

11/29/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: compare this ball to the IQ tour

12/1/2016 - By

Answer: Hello. The Storm IQ Tour will be a more aggressive ball than the Optimus Solid.

12/1/2016 - By

Question: Will the 12 lbs ball still hook like a, perhaps, 16 lbs ball?

12/3/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: The 12lb will not be as aggressive as a 16lb due to the weight block difference.
