Storm Nation - July 14, 2013 Marvel-S™ Review by Staffer Garrett Richardson
Name: garrett richardson
Storm Product: Marvel-S
Accomplishment: Hand: Left Ball Speed: 16-17mph Ball Weight: 15lbs PAP: 5 left 7/16 up Degrees of Tilt: 17 Layout: 5 x 5 ½ x 2 The Marvel S I have drilled pin above the ring finger with the cg in and no hole on the side with 3000 abralon. At the beginning I was a little skeptic about the ball only because it has a strong cover the NRG that is from the Virtual Gravity Nano and now the Sync in which I thought would be too strong but boy was I wrong. The Marvel S is by far the strongest ball in the current master line but not overly strong to where you cannot use it as often. Yes it does have the NRG solid cover that is currently the strongest cover in the storm line up but with the centripetal weight block that is very popular from the Marvel Pearl and !Q tours it gives you more control but still packs a punch down lane. When I first started to roll the Marvel S I was very surprised on how much back end motion it has for a solid cover stock ball in the Marvel line up. The original Marvel was more even which is what I typically see in solids of this kind but with the upgraded cover; when it sees friction down lane it makes a strong turn to the pocket which is also what I see in the Sync which is the big daddy of the storm line up. I went to Las Vegas for TAT (True Amateur Tournament) and used the Marvel S about 95% of the time and it got me into the finals. It was a 37 foot pattern something close to maybe the PBA Viper with a little bump outside if you played it right. The best look I had was outside around the 6 board straight up which still today it shocks me I was able to use it from the fresh to even on the break down and usually I cannot do that with this type of ball. When my other equipment would give me over under or fade down lane I was able to switch back up to the Marvel S (strongest ball in my bag that I brought) and it was smooth all the way down lane and was not jumpy at all with the 3000 abralon by hand compared to the 3000 out the factory. This is a great compliment to the Marvel Pearl when the lanes have more oil or for the people who have high ball speed for more medium condition you will have no problem using this ball.
