Storm has created the Pitch Black, a solid urethane ball, for their Thunder Line. This ball is intended to provide control on lighter and shorter oil conditions. The Capacitor core gives this ball a straighter but strong delivery.
I purchased this ball as an upgrade to my old (20 years) Columbia 300 Shadow. It is a definite improvement over my older ball. While it is stronger than my Shadow it finishes MUCH better which is what I was looking for in this ball. I no longer leave 5-7's or just 5's on a worn out THS. It can cover more boards at times, but it is just as smooth and controllable as my Shadow.
not meant for everybody not a ball you want to used on a house shot unless it for 10 pins but if you are a tournament bowler and come across 35ft and especially 32ft patterns this ball is a nice option when you cant find the pocket its a urethane bowl want did you expect only meant for short patterns
THE PITCH BLACK SHOULD BE LISTED FOR STARTING BOWLERS. MY AVERAGE HAS DROPPED 20 POINTS SINCE I STARTED USING THIS BALL. IT WAS A WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME. I HAD PROFESSIONAL HELP USING IT AND THEY TOLD ME TO GET ANOTHER BALL.I HAD THE BALL SANDED AND IT STILL DOES NOT HIT WELL. I WILL DONATE IT TO THE SCHOOL LEAGUE.
