Storm Parallax Effect

Every aspect of the Storm Parallax Effect supports the dynamic performance of this high-performance bowling ball. This ball introduces the Pearl version of the TractionX7 coverstock. The TractionX7 combines all of the best features found in Storm's seven most popular coverstocks to date. This coverstock offers durability, backend, slower oil absorption as well as versatility. This dynamic core surrounds the Aeroflo Core. This core features an ellipsed hole that is filled with lighter core material which creates a higher RG than usually found in asymmetric bowling balls. A flip block at the bottom of the core creates a high total differential. This ball offers a little more length, backend, and entry angle than its predecessor but a little less mid-lane reaction when on heavy oil.

Can be a bit unpredictable at times

Best Uses:

Great ball! Well worth the money

Freshly drilled, I bowled a 235. I’m still relatively new to bowling but this ball compliments me perfectly. Not ideal for fresh lanes but can get the job done. I only have about 15 games or so on it but it’s definitely in my main bag.

Awesome ball well worth the price

I hadn't bowled regularly in about 8 years. I averaged 175 back then. I purchased a black widow from hammer when I first got back into it. But really wanted a storm ball as I used to throw a thunder flash. I was averaging 155-160 with the black widow and now throwing the Parallax Effect for 1 week I'm averaging a solid 180. I love the way how this ball feels inmy hand. On league night I shot a 575 series. That's the closest I've been to 600 all season.

Sometimes the hook is a little to much

Best Uses:

Fresh oil, league

Bottom Line:

Amazing ball

I am switching from 1 handed to 2 handed and this was an amazing ball to do the transition with. It's able to travel very far down the lane before it starts to hook and is making the shape that I love to throw.

This ball RIPS

I bought this ball two nights ago and just used it last night for league. I had it drilled for a finger tip grip and it just RIPS across the boards. I was a solid 8 or 9 boards LEFT (right hander) than my Global 900 Volatility and it just slammed through the pins. Great ball! I am excited to use it again tonight.

You won't regret it

This ball is a monster, the Storm team nailed it. I've tossed it 12 or so games and been at least 20 over my previous average each game. Pick on up, you won't regret it.

Question:

I have an idol synergy and just ordered a parallax effect. How would the 2 compare?

5/14/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Parallax Effect will have slightly more length than the Idol Synergy but it will have a much stronger backend hook. Because it has a stronger backend hook the Parallax Effect is more suited to work in heavier oil while the Idol Synergy is more for medium oil conditions.

Question:

Do you have heavy 14 #?

8/15/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

We do not typically have the balls very heavy over the listed weight. If you select 14lbs then the weight usually falls between 14lbs even to 14lbs 4oz a large majority of the time. If you wanted something heavier you may request for the exact weight by entering this in the Pin/Top weight box and we can check for an option that you want.

Question:

can you use this ball on house shots?

9/23/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This is a very high performance ball and usually required heavier oil conditions. If your house shot has a lot of oil then you could use this but if the lanes are more medium to lighter oil then this ball would be too aggressive to use.
