Storm Axiom Bowling Ball Features:
The Axiom joins Storm’s Master line and quickly takes over as the biggest hooking ball in the series. Its Orbital core design features a slightly lower RG and a very slightly lower differential compared to the Velocity core of the Phaze II. The big change is in the coverstock, as the new NeX coverstock found on the Axiom is a much more aggressive cover compared to the Phaze II’s TX-16 veneer. At the same factory surface prep of 3000 Abralon, this new shell handled oil even better than both the NRG and R2S covers.
Design is thinking made visual. In Storm’s case, it’s design materialized. We understand that the perceptible is as important as the tangible. NeX (Nano Extreme) is Storm’s earliest reading cover to date. NeX Solid was remarkably earlier hooking than NRG on any pattern, or any surface we tested it on. We love all things new at Storm, and the Orbital Core is no exception. This modern take on an established concept has us stirring with excitement. The Orbital Core has a distinctly low RG axis which further complements the midlane read for which NeX was developed.
The Orbital Core has a distinctly low RG axis. The lower the RG, the less resistant the ball will be to changing direction as it travels down the lane. The central ball inside the core ensures the ball revs up in the midlane and blends out the end of the pattern.
NRG has become a staple in Storm’s lineup of coverstocks for nearly a decade. It’s due time for an upgrade! NeX (Nano Extreme) is Storm’s earliest reading cover to date. NeX Solid was remarkably earlier hooking than NRG on any pattern, or any surface we tested it on. Our standardized durability and longevity tests showed NeX created 11% more entry angle and 9.6% more overall hook after 50 shots compared to a fresh NRG cover. Simply put, NeX gives more midlane read than ever WITHOUT sacrificing any backend! Wow.
