Storm Phaze III

Question:

How would phase 3 compare to motiv forge fire

10/28/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Motiv Forge Fire is listed as a high performance ball while the Phaze III is an upper mid performance so the Forge Fire will be stronger. Also the Phaze III is polished to go longer on the lanes than the Forge Fire. Lastly the Phaze III is rated for more medium oil conditions while the Forge Fire is for medium to heavier oil.

Question:

How can the Storm Phaze 3 compare with the Storm Super Son!Q

11/3/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Phaze III is designed for more length and a strong backend. Because the Phaze III goes so much longer on the lanes it is ideal for medium oil conditions. The Super Son!Q is duller and this helps it to read earlier on the lanes and also can handle medium to heavier oil because of this.

Question:

How would this ball compare to a Marvel Pearl

11/4/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Marvel Pearl was going to go just slightly longer on the lanes than the Phaze III. The hybrid cover on the Phaze III helps smooth the reaction on the backend some so the Phaze III still goes long on the lanes before hooking but it is smoother on the backend while the Marvel Pearl is more angular.

Question:

What is difference be the phaze 3 and the iq emerald

11/5/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Phaze III is going to have a stronger hook potential than the IQ Tour Emerald. The Phaze III has the R3S Hybrid cover which helps the ball read a little earlier and smoother than the R2S Pearl cover on the IQ Tour Emerald.

Question:

How does the phase 3 compare to the phase 2?

11/21/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Phaze 3 will have a polished finish which makes it go further down the lane and have a sharper backend hook while the Phaze 2 is designed to read the lanes earlier to have a smoother arcing hook.

Question:

How does this compare to a dv8 turmoil?

11/22/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

There are a few different Turmoil balls and they are all listed as mid performance while the Phaze III is an upper mid performance ball. So this should be a little stronger hook potential than the Turmoil series.

How does the Phaze III compare to the ProMotion

11/24/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

There are a lot of differences between this and the ProMotion. This ball is designed for medium oil and the ProMotion is for heavy oil. This ball is designed to go longer on the lanes for a sharper backend hook and the ProMotion is designed for an earlier smoother arc hook.

Question:

How does the phase 3 compare to the brunswick prism hybrid??

12/3/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

They would be a very close comparison actually. They are both hybrid coverstocks with a polished finish to give them great length. They are both rated for medium oil but the Prism Hybrid is in Brunswicks high performance line while the Phaze III is in Storms Upper Mid performance line so the Prism Hybrid may be just slightly stronger.

Question:

Would this ball be good on fresh then the soniq with med. speed?

12/22/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

I am not sure there is a big enough difference between this and the Son!Q to need both options. They are both designed to go longer on the lanes and both are upper mid performance balls with similar strength. I would say just to use one or the other between this and the Son!Q.

Question:

Roll a back up ball speed around 11 mile a hour would you recommend this ball

12/26/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball would be good for someone with a lower ball speed because it is designed to get down the lane before it starts hooking. You would just have to make sure the driller knows to drill this for a backup roller.

Question:

Phaze 3 compare to MVP Pearl? I currently throw a Idol Pearl

12/28/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Phaze III would be more comparable to the Idol Pearl than the MVP Pearl. The MVP Pearl is a mid performance ball for medium to lighter oil and the Phaze is a step up as an upper mid performance ball more for medium oil only.

how does this ball compare to the method

12/30/2019 - By

Question:

Will a 13 lbs ball react like the 14

1/1/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The weight block will change when you go down to 13lbs so it will have a slight difference but it is not a huge difference in terms of hook potential. Both the 14lb and 13lb have the same cover and finish.

Question:

How does the phase 3 compare to the IQ tour nano

1/3/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Phaze III was meant for medium oil and has a polished finish that goes longer on the lanes and has a sharper backend hook. The IQ Tour Nano was better for medium to heavier oil and had a 4000 grit finish to help it read a little earlier and a little smoother than the Phaze III.

Question:

How does phase 3 compare to roto grip wreaker

1/3/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Phaze III will be a stronger hook ball than the Wrecker. The Wrecker was rated for medium to lighter oil and was a mid performance ball. The Phaze III was more for medium oil only and was an upper mid performance ball.

Question:

Why don't they come in half size

1/3/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Most of the balls will come with a couple of ounces over the weight selected but it is abnormal to get the ball in the half weights and could even be considered a blemish it the ball is that much higher than the weight listed.

Question:

how does the phase 3 compare to code red

1/7/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Code Red is listed as a high performance ball for medium to heavy oil. The Phaze III is listed as an upper mid performance ball for medium oil conditions so the Code Red will be a stronger hooking ball.

Question:

How does Phase 3 compare to Hyroad X with regard to hook potential and backend

1/7/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Phaze III is an upper mid performance ball for medium oil conditions and the HyRoad X is a mid performance ball for medium to light oil. So the Phaze III will be a stronger hooking ball. The Phaze III will go a little longer on the lanes due to the hybrid cover versus the solid cover on the HyRoad X.

Question:

1/10/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

These bowling balls are actually going to be almost identical. They both had pearl coverstocks with a 1500 grit polished finish and they are both upper mid performance balls designed to work well in medium oil.

Question:

I have the intense fire. Its a high performance ball. Will I lose some thing with the phaze 3 ball. Or will these balls be compatible. Ever phaze 3 is and upper mif performance ball.what it be any difference. Between them

1/10/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The numbers would indicate that the Phaze III and the Intense Fire are very close and almost identical. However, the Intense Fire is going to be slightly stronger than the Phaze III because it had an asymmetric weight block while the Phaze III has a symmetric. This give the Intense Fire a little stronger reaction and makes it more suited for medium to heavier oil while the Phaze III would be best in medium oil.

Question:

I throw a hybrid match is this better then the phaze 3. I all so throw and intense fire. The match up hybrid is my spare ball is this a good combonation

1/11/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Phaze III would fit in between the Match Up Hybrid and Intense Fire and they have similar reactions on the lanes so that could be a good compliment to the balls you already have.

Question:

I am currently using the Alpha Crux ball what would be a good next ball

1/11/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Yes, the Alpha Crux was mostly designed for heavy oil only so when the lanes start to break down to more medium oil conditions the Phaze III could be a good option to switch to because it handles medium oil better and also gives you more length so it will not roll out too early.

Question:

How does the phase 3 compare to the storm lock

1/11/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Storm Lock was going to have a stronger hook potential and it will read the lanes earlier than the Phaze III. Because of this the Lock was more suited for heavier oil while the Phaze III is more for medium oil conditions.

Do you have any high performance ball that compares with the intense fire. Same spec

1/12/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

We do not have a ball with the exact same specs as the Intense Fire but the Storm Astrophysix might be the closest option currently. The Intense Fire would probably fit between the AstroPhysix and the Physix but I lean to the reaction of the Astrophysix because it gave good length on the lane like the Intense Fire.

Question:

What's the difference between upper mid balls to high perf balls

1/12/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

High Performance balls tend to have the latest performance pieces and will usually be designed to be the highest hook potential and/or handle heavier oil conditions. Upper mid performance bowling balls tend to be one step down in terms of either hook potential and/or lane conditions that they work in. That said, it is not always better to go with the highest performance ball because you may not need the ball to work in heavier oil or have a high hook potential on the lanes that you typically bowl on.

Question:

My arsenal includes a virtual gravity, crux and a hammer taboo. How would the phase iii compare?

1/13/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The balls that you have are all high performance balls designed for heavier oil almost exclusively. They are also all out-of-the-box with a sanded finish to help the balls react a little earlier on the lanes. The Phaze III will read later on the lanes and because it is not quite as strong as the others it will be more rated for medium oil conditions. It would be a good backup option if you needed something for when the lanes start breaking down.

Question:

How does phaze 3 compare to idol pro?

1/13/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Idol Pro has a duller finish out the box which helps it to start reading earlier on the lanes and work a little better in medium to heavier oil. The Phaze III is designed to go longer on the lanes before it starts hooking so it is more ideal in medium oil only.

Question:

Will the phaze III fit next to my halo vision? I can not get the vision to shape very well.

1/16/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Halo Vision is a high performance ball for medium to heavy oil. It has a 4000 Grit finish on a hybrid cover to it reads a little in the midlane with good continuation on the backend. The Phaze III is a pearl cover with a polished finish which makes it go further down the lane for a sharper more angular backend hook. It is not quite as strong overall as the Halo Vision because it was more designed for medium oil. I hope this helps to determine if this would be a good fit.

Question:

Is the ball only good on medium oil lanes or is it good for all?

1/17/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The ball is rated to perform best in medium oil. If you throw this in heavier oil then the reaction would be later and weaker hook but if you throw this in lighter oil it will want to grab a little earlier and have a stronger hook. You may be able to adjust to use this in most conditions but it is best for medium oil.

Question:

How would phaze 3 compare to a motive golden jackal.

1/18/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Question:

What’s better for a 10.5 mph range speed phaze 3 or crux prime

1/23/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Phaze III would be a better option because you would need good length to help with the ball speed being a little slower. The Crux Prime will want to start hooking to early and with your ball speed it may hook too much too early and be too hard to control.

1/23/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Storm Drive was a high performance ball with a hybrid cover finished at 3000 grit and designed for heavier oil. It would be stronger than the Phaze III and the Phaze III reacts later on the lanes than the Drive.
