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.

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.
