SNAP LOCK

The Snap Lock unlocks breakthroughs in flare potential, entry angle, and carry percentage. The super dense RAD-X Core revs up early with its lowered radius of gyration. Couple this core with the R3S Pearl Reactive coverstock and the marriage the two create is something that has to be seen to believe.

Performance Optimized

Flare potential is synonymous with the RAD-X name. Its dynamic design with super-dense materials produces superior hook and ball motion. There is no shortage of power in this engine. With over 6 inches of flare potential ready to be unleashed, the player will be able to create a ball motion that demands attention.



The R3S has added performance

R3S is the third generation of Storm’s flagship coverstock: Reactor cover material. This shell has a measurable porosity that is higher than its predecessor. This increased porosity reads the lane slightly sooner than Reactor or R2S and smooths out the overall reaction. Blending out lane transition is one of R3S’s best features.

Lasted 2 months
When I first got the ball, I couldn't stop bowling. I absolutely loved the ball. I started averaging 202-203, from 170-180. And, after a couple of months, it wouldn't hook, like, at all. I always cleaned and took great care of the ball, too. It's like a complete different ball now. I don't like it.

Great at first, then an overpriced spare ball
When I first got this ball I loved it. Shot 690 or higher for 8 weeks straight in 2 leagues. Cleaning it after each night. After about 70 games on it I noticed it started really laboring. Which was weird because it was amazingly strong and drove like nothing else I had. Thinking it was just an off night I let it be. I continued for 2 more weeks leaving washout and basically watching the ball never finish. I took my hyroad pearl out after I was fed up with disgust and could not believe how strong the hyroad was compared to this. I realized the cover pretty much died at that point. I've resurfaced it twice now and needless to say I pick up my 10 pins with it. The cover was a joke. It has no longevity whatsoever and an utter disappointment for a 220$ ball.

This ball is a beast. The R3S cover goes hand in hand with the Rad-X core. Backend on this ball is beautiful. If I miss a board or two right, it grabs the friction and reads beautifully and still packs the pocket. Pin carry shouldn't be an issue with this ball, as it causes the pins to fly across the deck.

Unbelievable
I have used many products in my 50 plus years of bowling and no doubt storm is number 1 this snap lock has the best roll and pin carry that I have ever seen it had raised my avg from 220 to 233 as of today now the funny part is my leagues combined now have approx 20 plus of snap lock being thrown because of watching how this ball preforms matterer of fact as of jan2 getting another one just in case. This snap lock is fantastic. Thanks storm engineers and producers. Keep it alive

This ball wheels!
For the insane amount of down lane reaction you get from this ball has. its easy ball to keep under control and the carry Ive been getting is crazy! I think this ball benefits players that have a good ball speed and like to hook the ball and a solid amount of revs.

I love my Snap Lock
This ball is a must in any serious bowlers bag. It gets through the head and mids with ease and reads the dry amazingly, with a violent and aggressive snap toward the pins. It keeps the pins low and carries better than anything I have ever used. It is a little more aggressive than I was expecting it to be but that is ok. I can use this ball from start to finish in league only moving a couple boards over 3 games.
