HY-ROAD

Power in every shot. Purpose in every ball. For eight years, the Hy-Road has exemplified this. The hitting power is unmistakable in the Inverted Fe2 Technology with its heightened coefficient of restitution. The R2S Hybrid Reactive has become pillar of consistency utilized in some of Storm’s most successful balls in recent history.

Smartly designed Inverted Fe² Core

Inverted Fe2 technology boasts a higher RG and differential like most other balls in the Thunder Line, but with one very important benefit: it lacks the core material that most other balls have. This enables the ball to have a much thicker shell which raises the coefficient of restitution. A higher energy transfer to the pins with less deflection upon impact is what can be expected with this design.

The R2S delivers a perfect balance

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.

Competitive NOW because this ball ENDED my tired 40 year old game after my first roll
Early retirement made league possible for me after not bowling for forty years but my game stank and I bowled better at 13 years old.

In 8 months, and two balls later, my average was barely busting 120 and I did my own research and the Hy Road was my 55th birthday present to myself last September.

The Hy Road immediately added 10 pins to my average and two months since, I've added 20 additional pins to my average. This ball IS consistent when I'm not and because of that consistency of ball motion, I finally understood how, exactly, my bowling BECAUSE I can SEE it in ball reaction. May adjustments are minor but effective, all because of this ball.

Bowling is fun again and I am making some shots now that are unbelievably good!

THANK YOU STORM

Hy-Road Enough Said
I purchased thus ball some months ago right after switching to Storm products. First night in league i shoot 785 clean. I couldnt believe what i was missing. I have lost many tournaments to others using this ball. I put it away up until last week. I shoot series of 720/742/300-806/699 (brain fart last ball in tenth). Thank you Storm and PBA Hall of Famer Tish Johnson and her staff at T&M's Proshop for always giving me what my game needs.

This ball is an excellent piece of equipment, and with confidence this should be the 1st ball out of any bowlers bag. There is a great deal of versatility and control with the Hy-Road. You truly get the best of both worlds with the RS2 cover stock. It easily clears the heads and reads the mid lane beautifully, giving you a nice predictable shape that is very helpful while making adjustments. It's been my benchmark ball all season. Prior to owning the Hy-Road, I was using 2 bowling balls from other companies, that offered this kind of versatility. Near the beginning of this season, my equipment was stolen from my car, overnight. I didn't feel this way at the time, but I'm actually oddly happy it happened. Looking back, the Hy-Road does the job of 2 bowling balls from my old arsenal. I use a 15.3 oz ball with a 3.5 inch - pin up layout, and a 3oz top weight. This is an excellent combo for medium to heavier oil, starting up 8, and moving in as the night progresses. Depending on oil, I have played as far out as 4 or 5, and as deep as around 22. Carry is never much of an issue with the Hy-Road. Last season with my old equipment, I averaged 211 - in a house known for it's lack of carry. So far, this season I've averaged 217. With a quarter left to bowl, I still feel like I'm going to gain a pin or two. I'm not suggesting that a bowling ball will increase your average, but adding a useful and predictable tool to your game absolutely can not hurt. The Hy-Road also makes a solid and a pearl. I'm sure they are excellent as well. I already have my sights set on replacing the rest of my stolen equipment, and I obviously intend to stick with Storm.

I have always thrown a curve ball with mixed success until I purchased this
Hy-Road bowling ball. Having a well trained Pro in the shop where I purchase the ball also helped a lot. When correctly placed the back end hook brings outstanding action to the pins. My average increased by 20% in the first 3 game series. I am a true believer. Thank you Storm you've developed an awesome product.

2 perfect games can't be wrong
Yeah, got this when it first came out, 3 weeks straight shot low 700's with it including a 300, then a few months later shot another 300, and the kicker on that one was that I hadn't planned on throwing it that night, my ball of choice that night got damaged during practice.

I love this ball. It took me 7 years to convince myself to buy one, but once I did I was hooked. Very smooth and very versatile. Fits in my bag like a glove. Never leave without it. It has improved my game and confidence.Thank you storm for making such an awesome ball.
