Good Starter Ball

I started on a bowling league this year for the first time in over 12 years.
I was using an old plastic ball that was drilled for me.
I bought the Tropical Storm about 2 months ago now.
My average has improved a great deal. I was at a 125 average and I have been getting many games that range from 155-172. I really love this ball! I am getting a lot more strikes now. When I do leave pins, it is usually just 1 pin that I am leaving instead of 3 or 4 with the old plastic ball.
The Tropical Storm does have a nice hook at the end...right before hitting the pins. It took a couple weeks to get used to. I would never go back at this point! I also had the ball drilled fingertip. So much eaiser to throw compared to the conventional drill. All around a great ball with pretty good performance!

GREAT ball for young and new

My poppa bought me this ball when he felt i was ready for a core ball. Works GREAT, has good back end break. High game is 215 and averaging 150-160 at my age 13. Bowling for three years; results; Season one, second place. Season two, league champion/most improved bowler. Season three, second place, high scratch series. Ready to purchase a heavier ball now as my speed has increased. Will get another breeze.

Controllable hook., not too much but enough to learn with
it cracks fast and easy.
Best Uses:
drier lanes
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great ball for the first few times you throw it.

i've had two of these now, and my first one started cracking after the first time i threw it, but all the locals said not to worry about it. About 2 months down the road the finger holes had cracked to the poin it was all one hole and shredding my fingers when i threw it. my second time i got it professionally drilled hoping maybe it wouldn't happen, but i threw it for maybe 5 games my first night night, and came back the next night and when i pulled it out of the bag there was hairline cracks all around the finger holes, and by the end of the night my finger grips were coming out from all the cracks.

Customer Questions & Answers  |  Reviews

Question: what kind of reaction should i expect

3/5/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hi, this Tropical Breeze will carry a fairly straight line, with a slight hook as it nears the pins. You will need to be able to generate some revs on the ball to see the hook.

Question: The picture is of the NEW version of the logo...without the work Breeze. So if I order this ball, would I be getting the new logo, or the old "Tropical Breeze" logo?

7/13/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello Dennis! The old and new logos are probably both in our stock. So if you want one or the other, you can just put a request for the one you want in the comments box on the final page of placing your order.

Question: Good for dry lanes?

Question: I roll a back-up ball. Is this a good ball for that style?

8/23/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello Memaw! That would depend on a lot of different factors. If you'd like, you can give us a call at 1 (800) 441-2695 and someone here can help get some recommendations together for you.

Question: I currently use a Storm Rocket Ship.. Will this ball be more tame on the back end?

8/28/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello Lefyy! Yes, this ball will be much more tame on the back end and will hook significantly less than the Rocket ship. If you're just looking for a little bit less hook, you might want to look at the Storm Match Pearl or the Storm Ride.

Question: beginning bowler at age 59, using an 8 lb house ball, is this a good step up for better performance? 8 lbs seems heavy enough I see this starts at 10 lbs.

10/7/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello. Yes that should be fine. This is a level above the house balls. Usually we only have lighter weights for the spare and plastic balls. The performance balls will either be 10lbs and up or 12lbs and up.

10/11/2016 - By

Question: How different this reactive ball from plastic & what is 1500 grit polished

11/9/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hi. A plastic ball will only bowl straight. This ball will have a slight hook on it. The 1500 grit polished will make it break a little later.

11/11/2016 - By

Question: Is the weight block used for a 13 pound ball the same as the one used for a 14 pound ball?

1/12/2017 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello Deb. The weight blocks will be different for the 13 and 14. The 14-16lbs will all have the same weight block but anything under 14 will have something different.

1/13/2017 - By

Question: What is the difference between this ball and the Rhino?

5/1/2017 - By

Have an answer to this question?
