Storm Proton PhysiX

The Storm Proton PhysiX high-performance bowling ball was designed to offer traction and hook on just about any heavy oil condition you might come across. This bowling ball is the third in the popular PhysiX line and continues the success of the Atomic core. The low RG of the core assists in producing spin on the ball and when combined with the NeX Solid Reactive coverstock this ball is unstoppable on heavy oil conditions. The Proton PhysiX offers a good midlane read while generating a strong entry angle that will maximize pin carry.

More than I expected

Being a 900 Global staffer, I did not have the opportunity until recently to throw Storm and knew I wanted to get a strong asymmetrical solid as I’ve always known they have always delivered good equipment. I’ve always struggled with getting strong asymmetrical to turn the corner and carry the 10 or not burn up. The Proton Physix was everything I’ve been missing. I drilled in 50x4 1/2x45 and I have a slower ball speed and have 12 degrees of tilt. After drilling I was very impressed with the continuous early roll without the loss of hitting power. I did eventually put a little polish by hand just to have the ability to play a little deeper and have it turn the corner better which now helps being able to stay with this ball during a full league session. After throwing this ball for a week the overall strength impressed me as well as the ability to keep moving left, but the thing that impressed me the most is the NeX cover. I was expecting it to be strong which it is, but was not expecting it to work as well on lanes that are very wet dry. I don’t have to be afraid move left and send it to the dry. The NeX cover doesn’t over react off the dry nor does it burn up too much like you could see from strong asymmetrical solids. I am really excited for the Hyroad Maxx and look forward to that being a good down ball from the Proton Physix.

Amazing Physix Addition

This ball is just WOW. I’ve loved every Physix ball, and this one compliments them all and hits the pins like a truck so that’s a plus! As soon as I let go of the ball it is so smooth and get down the lane. This is overall an amazing ball and I would recommend it for anyone looking to add a ball to their arsenal.

Proton Physix

This is undoubtedly the strongest ball I have had in my bag in quite some time. I am just going to come out and say the ONLY thing I don’t like about this ball is that it is pink. But that is obviously a very personal opinion of something that doesn’t affect the balls performance on the lanes. Seeing as the original Physix is one of my all-time favorite balls I was very excited when Storm announced they would be wrapping the Atomic Core with the NeX solid cover. Even though the Proton is an asymmetrical bowling ball the NeX cover stock has allowed me to have “control” over this ball. I never feel as if it jumps off of the spot too quick like an asymmetric pearl would. The only ball I could compare its strength to is the Sure Lock, it just digs into the oil unlike anything I have seen since the Sure Lock was released.

Storm Proton PhysiX!

Introducing the brand new Proton PhysiX! This is Storm's new big asymmetrical ball! This ball features the NeX Solid Reactive coverstock wrapped around the Atomic core! The NeX Solid Reactive was featured in the Axiom and, the atomic core was featured in the original PhysiX! This ball just flat out hooks and, is known as a "Hook Monster"! For me this is a great ball for heavier lane conditions or, for when the transition hits and, the backends don't have as much friction. Compared to my Axiom this ball is more aggressive overall where as my Axiom is cleaner through the fronts and aggressive down lane.
Do yourself a favor and go get one! Everyone needs a ball like this in their bag!

Question:

How strong is this ball compared to ufo and gravity evolve

10/15/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This will be extremely similar to the Gravity Evolve in almost every aspect with a solid cover, 2000 grit finish, and similar RG values. The UFO will give you a little more length from the weight block but will still be pretty similar.

Question:

How does this ball compare to the roto grip Wreck-em?

11/9/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This is going to be drastically different than the Wreck-em. The Wreck-em was a mid performance ball for medium to light oil and it had a pearl cover and polished finish to go long on the lanes. The Proton Physix is a high performance for heavy oil conditions with a solid cover and dull finish to read earlier on the lanes for a smooth arcing hook.

Question:

How does this ball compare to the Axiom ?

11/15/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Proton Physix is a high performance ball with a stronger asymmetric weight block and works in heavier oil conditions only. The Axiom is an upper mid performance ball with a symmetric weight block and rated more for medium to heavy oil. Both read the midlanes and have a smoother hook down the lane but the Proton Physix will be stronger

Question:

Can this ball Proton Physix use for not so oily condition or even dry lane condition

11/17/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball will have too much hook potential for lighter to drier lane conditions. It is designed to work in heavy oil only.

Question:

How does the proton physix compare to the physix and astro phsix?

12/6/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Proton Physix is the solid cover in this group and has the dullest out of the box finish so it will read the earliest on the lanes. The AstroPhysix is the Pearl with a polished finish so it will read the latest on the lanes and the original Physix was a Hybrid cover and the finish was in between the others so it will read later than the Proton Physix and earlier than the Astrophysix.

Question:

How does the Proton Physix compare to Crux Prime?

12/6/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The coverstock and finish would be very similar but the weight block on the Proton Physix will start reading earlier and have a slightly stronger flare than the Crux Prime.

Question:

How will this compare to the radical incognito?

12/13/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

They would have an extremely similar reaction. Both have a solid coverstock finished at 2000 grit and the weight blocks essentially give you the same RG values. So they will be very similar in reaction.

Question:

how does this ball compare to the black widow 2.0 and the new Web?

12/22/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball is in the high performance category while the Widow 2.0 and the Web MB are upper mid performance balls. So the Proton Physix will have a slightly higher hook potential. The Widow 2.0 has a solid cover with a 2000 grit finish just like the Proton Physix so they will have a similar shape by hooking earlier in the midlane but the Web MB has a pearl cover and polished finish to go later on the lanes and have a sharper backend hook.

Question:

How will this ball differ from pitch black thinking about buying

1/3/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This will be much stronger than the Pitch Black. This is considered a high performance ball to handle heavier oil conditions and the Pitch Black is more for lighter oil conditions. It will be a very drastic difference in hook potential.

Question:

Can I use on house dhot

1/8/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball is designed to work in heavier oil conditions so it may be a little strong for a typical house shot. You may could use this the first game with fresh oil and if you do not have a high rev rate then this could work. If you have a high rev rate then this may be too strong for even the first game on typical house shots.

Question:

Can you shine this ball?

2/22/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Yes, if you need more length on this you could add a polish to it but this ball is designed to read earlier on the lanes so the duller finish works best with this coverstock and match up and if you needed more length then you may search for a ball that is already designed to give you more length.

Question:

I have too questions? The first question is this can you use this on an house shot? Here is my second question i know that storm does not have an rating system but if you had to rate it what would you rate it?

3/23/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball will be very aggressive and have a high hook potential. It really needs heavy oil to work best so if your bowling center has heavier oil at the beginning of the night you may could use this but at some point during the night as the lanes start to dry out some you would need to change to another ball that works more in medium oil.

Question:

I am thinking about getting the proton physix or6 the parallax effect i have an medium reve rate which one do I need?

4/1/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

It may depend on your ball speed also. If you have a higher ball speed and were speed dominant then the Proton Physix may be a better option. If your ball speed is slower and you are rev dominant then the Parallax Effect would be better. If you have a medium speed and medium rev rate then it will just depend on your personal preference. The Proton Physix reads the lanes earlier and has a smooth arcing hook while the Parallax Effect goes longer on the lanes and has a sharp backend hook.

Question:

Will this ball be a good ball to pair with the tropical surge

4/9/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

I think this option will be a pretty big step up from the Tropical Surge and it may leave you with a gap in between. You may want to go with something more like a Axiom Pearl which would give you a similar reaction in length but is strong enough to work more in medium to heavier oil conditions and keep your Tropical for medium to lighter oil conditions.

Question:

I have an question would the parallax effect be an good ball to the porton physix to have in your bag

4/14/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

They will both have a different reaction on heavier oil conditions. The Proton Physix is designed to read the lanes earlier and have a smoother arcing hook while the Parallax Effect is designed to go longer on the lanes and have a sharper backend hook. So if you have a need to have two different looks on heavier oil then you may like to have both options in your bag.

Question:

I currently have the electrify hybrid and I only throw it 14.5 to 15 mph. I’m wanting something a little more stronger? Would the proton physix be too strong for me on a house shot? Thanks

4/20/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Moving up from the Electrify Hybrid to the Proton Physix will be a large jump up in performance and this ball will have a much stronger hook potential. It also reads the lanes earlier for a smoother arcing hook compared to the Electrify which has more length and a sharper backend hook. The Proton Physix may work the first game of a league night but it will quickly become too strong because the lanes will start to break down and dry out and this ball needs a lot of oil. You may prefer to go with something that is not quite as strong to be able to use it longer before having to transition to the Electrify Hybrid for lighter oil. You may check out the Storm Phaze II or Storm Incite Hybrid.

4/25/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question? https://www.bowling.com/products/storm-xtra-shine-all-purpose-polish.htm" />

Answer:

If the ball is hooking too much or too early then you could try to add polish to the cover to help the ball go longer and this will take away some of the over all hook potential. Here is a Storm polish : https://www.bowling.com/products/storm-xtra-shine-all-purpose-polish.htm

Question:

How does this ball compare to the Jackal Legacy? Which has higher hook potential?

5/4/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

It is hard to compare the coverstocks because there is not a number that they put on the strength of the coverstock. Both are high performance balls with Solid Reactive coverstocks at a 2000 grit finish out of the box so just going by the strength of the weight block the Proton Physix is RG 2.48 and RG Dif .053 while the Jackal Legacy is RG 2.47 and RG Dif .054. This would mean the Jackal Legacy starts reading just a little earlier and has slightly more flare potential.
