Bottom Line:

Excellent choice for certain conditions

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.

tournament ball

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

None, Sorry I Bought Pitch Blac
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

NOT A GOOD BALL IF YOU KNOW HOW TO BOWL

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.

Bottom Line:

Great Ball! Fits great in my arsenal

I am a two handed bowler with a 215 average and I had issues adapting to my sport shot leagues lane conditions, but no more. The Storm Pitch Black rolls like a monster. I had it drilled pin up to the right of center with the CG kicked out about an inch to give some added length to a ball that is known to hook early. I then sanded it to 1000 grit so it could still bite and wouldn't go too long. I would recommend this ball to anyone who needed a versatile ball that could be a combo for a spare and Strike ball.
