Best Bowling



Some bowling balls immediately sink their teeth into the lane in order to provide traction in oil. Others glide through the front part of the lane with ease, saving all   their energy for  an  explosive  backend  reaction.  But,  what  happens  when  you  have  a  ball  that’s  capable of offering both? Well, at Storm, we wanted to find out, and that’s how we came up with the Dark Code - a ball that’s so good, it’s almost evil!


The engineering may be complicated, but the simple truth of the Dark Code is as confidence inspiring as anything else we’ve built to date. Dynamic cores and  potent  covers  build  a  solid  foundation  –  one  enhanced  by  industry-leading  longevity.  A  superior  factory  finish  signifies  its  place  atop the  pecking  order.  Imposing.  Purposeful. This is the kind of ball you look up to.

Traditionally,  the  term  “hybrid”  suggests  that both solid  and  pearl  components  coexist  within  a  coverstock. We saw a better way for hybrids and took it. When we joined R2S™ with NeX™ in the lab, the results exceeded our expectations. In our testing, we discovered that the Dark Code read the midlane slightly sooner than the Code Black™ thanks to its NeX foundation but produced similar backend and entry angle numbers because the chemical porosity of R2S is slightly more compact than NeX. We left nothing to chance with this one. Thus, ReX a.k.a. “Reactor Extreme” was born.

Crankers  will  discover  this  type  of  pearl  formulation  to  be  more  versatile  in  average  conditions.  Tweeners will crave this type of reaction to play to their strengths even on fresh conditions. Strokers gain easy access to power and backend the likes of which are not easily obtained in today’s high-volume environment.

If you need the perfect combination of mid-lane roll and backend reactivity with head-turn pin carry, the Dark Code should be your very first choice. Easy power and a gorgeous look? Sign us up.

The extremely dense RAD (Radial Accelerating Disc) Core technology provides more torque, entry angle, and power than most asymmetrical cores can hope to offer.
