MARVEL PEARL

You’ve spoken, we’ve listened. It’s time to look into the vault and bring back something that was undeniably one of the greatest creations Storm has produced to date. A highly polished R2X pearl blend made the most sense being that we were looking to create a stronger move to the pocket. Custom-engineered for the player who desires low, stable spin with forgiveness, the Centripetal Core features a center of gravity that is extremely low.

It's Marvelous

Custom-engineered for the player who desires low, stable spin with forgiveness, the Centripetal Core features a center of gravity that is extremely low. The innovative cascading channels engage the circumference of the weight block and maximize mid-lane control with a smoother change of direction downlane.



To strike, there must be friction

Slightly more aggressive than the famed R2S coverstock material, the R2X is right in the middle of Storm’s reactivity chart. It is the perfect balance of porosity and durably. It doesn’t grab too early, but doesn’t go too long either. Its versatility can benefit numerous bowlers of various styles.

Glad you are back Marvel Pearl
Storm Marvel Pearl Review:
55 x 5 x 60 – low hole
44ft THS on Kegel Ice oil on older HPL surface
Ball at BOX surface – 1500 grit polished
What I Like: That I now understand why this ball was re-released. Easy to use and to read the motion of the ball, very solid in front part of the lane and not over angular like Timeless or the Code series. The ball works great on HPL surfaces that are worn or little bit strong on the friction side. Can be the first ball out of the bag for any league and tournament bowler and stay with it all match long. Great ball also on medium to long sport patterns and seems to be the real “go to” ball for several serious league and tournament bowlers. The ball can be a bench mark ball for any type and level of bowler. Glad to have you back Marvel Pearl.

Review of the marvel pearl
The New Storm Marvel Pearl has the same core found in both the original solid Marvel and the original Prodigy. This bowling ball has an lower RG core which is combined with a pearlized coverstock that gives the Marvel Pearl more punch power at the back end. The cover for this ball is the same pearlized formulation found on the Prodigy, but the Enhanced Traction Mica has been removed. This cover creates a strong change of motion and direction when the ball encounters friction.The overall ball motion for the  Marvel Pearl creates worked best on our medium pattern and on some high oil lanes, what got my attention was the Marvel Pearl was the distinct motion it offered while going down lane. While the back end was more than other balls in the top line, it was far from being a skid/flip kind of ball. The motion seemed of something from years past. The Marvel Pearl has a big hook potential for a shiny pearlized ball. Shiny bowling ball stores more energy so tend to hook a little less.

On heavy pattern had with a tad too much oil for the Marvel Pearl to create the right ball motion or traction it needed to make it back to the pocket. You can use an 2000 Abralon pad on the Marvel Pearl which roughing up coverstock which will give an additional friction needed to combat the oil pattern.

On the drier lane conditions will require a nice coat of bowling ball polish and possibly drill the ball with a weak layout. The box finish is simply good for medium conditions. Higher ball speed increases the chance for success on this pattern.
