The Storm Trend is a high-performance bowling ball in Storm's Signature line of bowling balls that they have created in collaboration with professional bowler Jason Belmonte. This ball combines the proven and popular R2S coverstock with the Piston core to offer a ball that provides better carry by creating more angle into the pocket. This ball gives a quick response along with a more defined breakpoint regardless of what your rev rate is.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
2000polish for the stroker then use the polished ball for the dryer lanes so the ball goes longer then finishers to the pocket I am 73years old works perfect for me I want to get another one that's high polished thanks for listening to me thanks jeff
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!

is this good for two handers who have medium speed but high revs
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.
Does the trend have a strong backend
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.
What is the difference between the Trend and the Hy-road? Would these two bowling balls be good together in an arsenal?
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.
is the bowling ball good for someone that have slow speed
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.
Does this have a piston in the ball
Yes, the 14-16lbs weights have the Piston weight block. Piston is the name of the weight block and does not refer to an actual piston that moves.
What do you use to clean the ball with on a trend
A popular cleaner to use for this would be this cleaner: https://www.bowling.com/products/storm-reacta-shine-reactive-polish---cleaner.htm
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?
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.
how does this ball compare to the storm snap lock?
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.
is this ball symmetrical?
Yes, the weight block is symmetric for this ball.
Can this bowling ball pair good with the Storm Phaze 3
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.
How would this ball compare to the IQ Emerald?
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.
what do you mean about pin top weight?
Pin and top weight are specification you can request if you have a specific drilling layout in mind and want to make sure the ball comes in a range that lets you get a drilling to match your style. If you are not sure what pin or top weight you need you may check with your local proshop to see what they recommend you to get so they can drill the ball to fit your style. If you do not mention a pin or top weight the ball will come with a normal pin and top weight and you will have a few drilling options available.
compare the trend to the astro physix please ,,, thank you
They both have the same coverstock and finish out of the box so the big difference is the weight block. The Trend has a Symmetric weight block and that reads the lanes just a little later and it is just a little less flare than the AstroPhysix which has an Asymmetric weight block that starts to read a little earlier and has a stronger flare potential.
Does the ball have Jason Belmont he's silhouette?
Yes, this does have the Belmo Logo on one side.
please compare the Trend and the axiom Pearl . I just got the Trend and have been using the Axiom for about a month.
The Trend is a high performance ball and the Axiom Pearl is an upper mid performance ball so the Trend will have a little higher hook potential. Also the Trend is designed to get a little more length which will give it a sharper backend hook than the Axiom Pearl.
I play a down and in shot...house shot...not a whole lot of hook, but some..will this ball work for me or will it be too strong?
This ball would work well in the first game or two when the lanes have more oil on them but as the lanes start to dry some down into medium oil or lighter you would have to change to a different option that is more suited for less oil.
This should work well for what you need this for. It has good length with the pearl cover to help you play your down and in shot and it will work well in medium oil and some heavy oil conditions which is what a typical house shot will be.
How does this ball compare to the Storm IQ Tour and the Storm IQ Tour Nano
The Trend is considered a high performance ball while the IQ Tour and IQ Tour Nano are upper mid performance balls. The Trend is also a pearl ball with a polished finish so it will go longer and have a sharper backend than the IQ Tour which was a solid cover and the IQ Tour Nano which was a pearl cover but had a duller 3000 grit finish.
How would you compare the Trend to the Match Up bowling ball of storms.
The Match Up series was a mid performance series designed for medium oil and even some lighter conditions while the Trend is a high performance ball for medium to heavier oil conditions. The Trend will have a stronger hook potential.
I have a crux prime and astro physix that Worked out well for usbc nationals what would have worked out well after those 2 wouldve been, remember the old virtual energy? That was a hybrid reactive and great midlane read how does the trend compare? Ve's # are 2.48 and .48
The Trend would be a good option or you could also consider the Storm Phaze III which is another great option for medium oil conditions when the lanes are starting to dry a little and the Crux Prime and Astrophysix become too aggressive.
Due to the time it takes to produce the Storm Trend ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
