Great ball!

So far the best ball I have purchased to date. Can miss target to the right and recover to hit the pocket, almost every time I hit the pocket it shreds the rack of pins!

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

12/3/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

12/6/2016 - By

3/15/2017 - By

3/20/2017 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: This would make a great addition to your arsenal.

3/22/2017 - By

Question: I have a Roto-Grip Hywire, throw the ball at about 10-12 mph, fairly straight and it hooks at the end. I'm looking for something that will finish stronger than the Hywire but not be way out of my range. Will this work?

6/12/2017 - By

Question: How does this ball compare to the Roto Grip Hyper Cell?

6/18/2017 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: The Hyper Cell will be more comparable to the Motiv Jackal Ghost, Storm Sure Lock and the 900 Global Inception DTC. The Hyper Cell is a High Performance ball whereas this Optimus Solid is a mid performance.

6/21/2017 - By

6/21/2017 - By
