TREND - A Beauty

The latest Signature ball of Jason Belmonte is here and it is a really good one. Drilling some of the past Belmo equipment I have had a hard time getting them to work well for me, as my rev rate is 330. But this ball is a gem. Wrapped with the infamous R2S Pearl Reactive coverstock which is a proven success. The Piston Block core adds tremendous punch to this ball. I drilled mine 60 x 3 1/2" x 25 and it rolls amazing. If you like the Hyroad Pearl, IQ Emerald this ball compliments them perfectly being stronger. This ball turns the corner and keeps on going, having the best cover stock in the business this ball will stay around for a long time. Play up the boards or get inside the coverstock creates huge consistency and the core has all the power you need. Probably 3-4 boards less hook then the Axiom Pearl, and 5-6 boards stronger then the IQ Emerald. This ball is a must have in your bag and a great bench mark ball! You wont be disappointed in this Signature gem!

Question:

is this good for two handers who have medium speed but high revs

7/7/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Yes, if you rev dominant then you would need a ball that has good length so the ball does not overreact too early on the lanes. The pearl coverstock and polished finish on this ball will give you great length.

Question:

Does the trend have a strong backend

7/16/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Yes, this ball has a pearl coverstock with a polished finish to store all of the hook potential until the backend where it has a very strong backend hook.

Question:

What is the difference between the Trend and the Hy-road? Would these two bowling balls be good together in an arsenal?

7/29/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

While the Trend shows to be a high performance ball it has very similar features to the Hy-Road so the performance would be closer than the numbers may indicate. The Trend has the same cover as the Hy-Road Pearl but the weight blocks are different. I would give the Trend a slightly higher hook potential and a little more length than the Hy-Road but they are actually going to be very very close and if you wanted to use the Hy-Road Pearl to compliment the Trend that may be a better pairing.

Question:

is the bowling ball good for someone that have slow speed

8/12/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Yes, if you needed a ball for heavy oil conditions this would be good for someone with a slow ball speed. You want to make sure you have a pearl coverstock and polished finish to get the most length out of the ball as you can so the ball does not roll too early.

Question:

Does this have a piston in the ball

Question:

What is the difference between Astro physix and the Trend and the Hy-road pearl? I already have a idol pearl, I want to enrich my arsenal, which one do you recommend?

9/7/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Astrophysix has a slightly stronger weight block so it may give you more versatility to have that as your first ball and then the Idol Pearl as a back up for when the lanes get more medium oil. The Hy-Road Pearl may be too similar to the Idol Pearl to really need something like that but if you wanted something more for lighter oil then perhaps an Electrify Pearl would be a good option.

Question:

how does this ball compare to the storm snap lock?

9/13/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball is designed to get even more length and even more angular backend than the Snap Lock. The Snap Lock may have a slightly stronger overall hook though.

Question:

Can this bowling ball pair good with the Storm Phaze 3

11/3/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Yes, you could start the night with the Trend and then as the lanes get to more medium oil conditions you can transition to the Phaze 3 and it should give you decent length so that you can still play a sharp backend like you do with the Trend.

Question:

How would this ball compare to the IQ Emerald?

11/16/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This will have a stronger hook potential than the IQ Emerald. The IQ Emerald was an upper mid performance ball for mostly medium oil and the Trend is a high performance ball for medium to heavier oil conditions.
