Storm Trend Bowling Ball Features:
The Trend is the latest ball in the Belmo Signature line for Storm. It shares the symmetrical Piston core with the Pro-Motion, which has a lower RG and a slightly lower differential than the Dual-Drive weight block found in the Timeless and Drive. The ball is wrapped in the legendary R2S Pearl Reactive coverstock at a 1500 grit polished box finish.
You may already be familiar with some of our previous collaborations with Jason Belmonte. From the PRO-Motion came the reputable Piston Core, a fantastically balanced shape that works for almost everyone and with any layout you can imagine. And to expand upon the ball motion already created by this phenomenal core shape, we explored a wide variety of coverstock options to create the most powerful ball ever in the Signature Line.To showcase the backend potential, we selected several variations of the Reactor family of coverstocks as they are the most responsive in the industry. As we worked through testing, it was clear that R2S was the best option for this one! “You want better carry? Then you need angle into the pocket. The Trend is what you have been waiting for,“ said Jason Belmonte. And no matter what your rev rate or how many hands you use to bowl, the Trend will give you a quicker response, more defined breakpoint, just what you need for better carry.
The Piston core brings with it months of testing and validation in conjunction with the best player of our time: Jason Belmonte. Developed specifically for his line, the Piston Core creates separate helical archs that make the shape corkscrew as it tumbles. You can see the channels on the sides of the Piston Core and the large band through the equator which displaces the mass in a very specific way.
R2S is synonymous with some of the most successful balls in recent history like the Hy-Road, Frantic, and the IQ Tour. It is renowned for clearing the front part of the lane with an unprecedented movement on the backend. The consistency of this shell through the heads is something to be marveled at.
