The Storm Tropical bowling ball legacy continues with the Surge core making a great bowling ball for entry level and casual league bowlers. The bright fun colors and unique fragrances make these fun balls appealing to bowlers of every skill level. Each ball features the Reactor Pearl Reactive coverstock that glides through the front of the lane, reacts down-lane, and creates optimum pin carry. The Surge core has a higher differential which brings dependability and a little more hook at the backend.

Is this a good spare ball , and will it get 7 and 10 pins
This is an entry level ball that will have a slight hook. This is not a spare ball that will bowl straight.
Are the finger holes drilled standard
The drilled holes will be a basic drilling. You can view the sizes of the option when you click on the "?" next to the price of the drilling with free protection.
Is this ball for medium to heavy oil?
Hello! This ball is going to be good on Dry-Medium lane conditions.
How much hook does this ball carry
This ball is an entry leve ball so it will have a medium to low hook on lighter to medium oil conditions.
How does this ball compared to the storm tropical storm? Would it be better or worse for a beginning straight bowler?
This is very comparable to a Storm Tropical and there would not be much difference in the performance. Both are designed to have a little hook potential so if you wanted to get a ball for bowling straight you could get the Ice Storm or one of the Storm Mix balls and they would be better for straight bowling.
I want the ball to weigh ten lbs when drilled so should i order 10bl ball
Usually the ball will come a couple of ounces over the weight selected but if you wanted to be sure you get the ball right at 10lbs after you drill the ball then you can request for the exact weight on the order. Either enter in the specs box or on the customer comments box on the final review page that you want a 10lb 2oz - 10lb-3oz ball.
I am 82 what kind of ball do I need
You would probably need a ball that gets down the lane well before hooking so the ball does not hook too early. Most pearl bowling balls have good length so this is a good option. You also want to make sure the ball is designed to work in the same lane conditions that you bowl in most of the time. This ball was for medium to lighter oil.
What type of lane conditions?w
This ball is designed for light to medium oil lanes.
Are the bowls or drilled
The balls do not start out drilled. We do offer drilling for some bowling balls for an added fee but you may decline this if you do not want drilling added.
My daughter throws her ball with her thumb at three o'clock,how would this ball react.
I am not familiar with the release but this ball is designed to work in medium to lighter oil and gets down the lane with good length and then has a sharp hook on the backend.
I’m hesitant to buy this ball because of the fragrance. How strong is it. Would the people I’m bowling with notice the fragrance or just me when I’m bowling?
The fragrance can be a little strong at first when the ball is brand new. We have had some people say that other people around them can smell the fragrance but after you bowl some with the ball it will start to fade down and not be as strong.
Is this a ball for beginners
This is a great option for someone looking to get their first performance ball and to learn how to throw a hook.
How heavy is the ball
You may select the weight in the weight selection box.
What's best to use to clean the Tropical Surge?
Storm recommends using Reacta Shine : https://www.bowling.com/products/storm-reacta-shine-reactive-polish---cleaner.htm
This is an entry performance ball so the hook potential is not very high. This helps the ball to work well in lighter oil conditions. In light oil it will have a medium amount of hook but when you compare this to all the performance balls it has a low amount of hook potential.
Due to the time it takes to produce the Storm Tropical Surge Pearl Pink/Purple ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
