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.
Very happy with my purchess! Ball arrived in 1 business day getting drilled and ready to rock and roll today
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
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.
