Storm Sure Lock

Storm continues the success of the Lock series with the Sure Lock bowling ball. The Sure Lock combines the successful RAD-X core with their new GI-17 (Game Improvement-2017) solid reactive coverstock. This combination works to provide a unique ball motion. The core provides awesome hook and ball motion with power while the coverstock fights through heavy oil to produce mid-lane roll. This ball helps with controlling the mid-lane as well as pin carry. The Sure Lock is a sure thing!

Storm Sure Lock is a must have in your collection!

This ball grabs and goes thru pins! Great pin Action!
I was told i'm a way different bowler using this ball!
I throw only 10-11mph standing far left, throwing thru the 25 and 20 arrow. It you need a ball in mid and especially heavy oil conditions, this ball works amazing!

Hey! The Storm Timeless has the same lane conditions as the Roto Grip Devour. If you need something for those kind of lane conditions, then the Timeless would be the one to go with. The Sure Lock works best on Heavy Oil only.

Question:

Should a full-roller use the sure lock

6/2/2017 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Depends on your rev rate. I believe with that heavy roll you would like it especially if you want to get left. Tell your ball driller to drill it for going longer or hooking earlier based on what you want.
