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.
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
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.
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.
