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.

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

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.

NOT FOR SOMEONE WITH LITTLE REVS
For anyone who knows how to bowl. This ball is great. This ball is not going to hook a mile by any means this ball is not for someone who gets very little revs it is for someone who knows how to control the ball on a short oil pattern. I've seen my friends bowl consistently in the 220s with this ball. My other friend bowled a perfect game with this ball.

Better than I expected.
Works well on very little oil. My high performance ball designed for oily lanes was not working well and finished up with this ball on lanes with a lot of oil and I was impressed. If I got near the headpin--the ball blew them out. Even got strikes by hitting direct on head pin. Very pleased--only regrets are that I did not get a 14 lb ball and that the first time it was drilled that it was done wrong. As it is I am dong well with a redrilled ball. Also I don't have a lot of rev but I cant complain with this ball.

The Best Choice I have ever made
This ball was perfect for my 35 foot sport pattern. I was only averaging 175 with my Brunswick Rhino gold pro but as soon as this ball came in I move my lone two boards in and the last 3 weeks I haven't shot under a 200! Also great for house oil. It's extremely constant if you are.

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.

This ball keeps you to the right of the lanes It works well from middle to dry lanes. The ball hits hard if you have a lot of hand. Also this ball will make you more accurate in your delivery no room for error
