Our planned rotation worked exactly as planned.

The Orbital Core has a distinctly low RG axis. The lower the RG, the less resistant the ball will be to changing direction as it travels down the lane. The central ball inside the core ensures the ball revs up in the midlane and blends out the end of the pattern.

Strong just got stronger.

NRG™ has become a staple in Storm’s lineup of coverstocks for nearly a decade. It’s due time for an upgrade! NeX (Nano Extreme) is Storm’s earliest reading cover to date. NeX was remarkably earlier hooking than NRG on any pattern, or any surface we tested it on. Our standardized durability and longevity tests showed NeX created 11% more entry angle and 9.6% more overall hook after 50 shots compared to a fresh NRG cover. Simply put, NeX gives more midlane read than ever WITHOUT sacrificing any backend! Wow.

Viciously good!!
I won the Axiom pearl in a raffle. I had not been looking to get one but figured since it was a prize I would give it a shot. Man was I shocked at what this ball can do. The house I bowl league in is a Medium-Heavy oil pattern, but the Axiom pearl was still able to get to the pocket. I can play straighter on the higher volume and it just launches itself into the pocket. I tried it in a tournament with light oil and I was standing 35 with eyes on 15 and it did not hesitate to obliterate the pins. I only throw at 16.7 MPH and 400-450 revs, but the Top Thrill is impressive. Do not under estimate this ball. It is a winner. This is now my favorite ball in my bag and I would buy another one. I have 2 300’s with it and came oh so close too 800 falling short and shooting 799. This is my go to ball. And a guy on my team has also bought one after seeing how it performs and he just shot 804 right out the box. Highly recommend this ball.

Love this bowling ball!!!
I'm a two-handed sophomore in highschool who bowls varsity for my team and had never had a game over 250. My dad bought me this ball and when Bowling at Northrock Lanes in a bowling meet I threw a 258 and then a 254. Which is surprising because I am a bowler who struggles to stay accurate on every shot, but the axiom pearl gave me plenty of miss room. Hands down my Favorite bowling ball ever and I've only had it for 3 months.

Clean and versatile.
The layout on my Axiom Pearl is 5.25 x 30, this is my benchmark layout for symmetric pieces.

The Axiom Pearl is cleaner and snappier than the original Axiom but covers a very similar amount of boards. It really impresses me with how well it reads the mid-lane at the OoB finish. It has become my go to ball when the original Axiom begins to see the lane too early, or when I am moving left of 5th arrow

First Ball, Love It!
I'm 16, and joined my High School Bowling Team about 7 weeks ago and I've gotten very into the sport. I was trying to decide which ball I want when a event came at my local home allyey where I could bowl ANY of the new storm balls and see if you like them. I got to try the Parallax, the newest IQ, and around 9 other balls, but NONE have ever gotten me above 3 strikes in a row except for this ball. Absolutely love everything about it and even though I dont have strong hook I feel its a ball i can comfortably grow into and it will always be a amazing option. Cant wait to see as I get better how this ball works with me compared to now!

Axiom Pearl - Just what Santa Ordered!
Storm Axiom Pearl - 35 x 4 x 70 - 1500 grit polished
NeX Pearl cover stock with Orbital Core
The next generation of pearl reactive has arrived! I found this ball to rev up quicker then even a Hyroad Pearl and went through the midlane like a rocket ship and hit the pins like they were toothpicks - that was my first reaction when bowling on newer SPL with a 46 ft house pattern with a bunch of 2 to 2's built into the pattern. I usually "struggle" to be consisent on getting the ball to stay in the pocket area because the conditioner moves around so much at this center with other pearl reactives with symmertic cores and Asys are way too strong to recover after a few games on the pair of lanes. Rolled better with 2000 grit done by hand on my second 6 games with it. I will keep it at 2000 grit because it was just a little more controllable after the pattern broke down. The NeX pearl coverstock is the real deal. Stop by our local Matchmaker and give it a try. Axiom Pearl with not disappoint you.

WOW!! This ball is simply amazing! The new Axiom Pearl is the biggest hooking hardest hitting Pearl Ball I have ever used. The new Axiom Pearl even covers more boards than my Parallax. The low RG of the Axiom Pearl helps the ball read the lane and rev up saving a lot of energy and hit from the cover. If this ball finds enough friction it will out move my dull balls. The Axiom Pearl is so good I try to use it whenever I can. I love when a ball comes out that you have absolute trust in the motion and carry which I have with The Axiom Pearl. I feel that when using Symmetric balls you have more forgiveness and can use them longer before a move or ball change occurs. We have been selling these extremely well in the shop and the ball motions for all styles have been great. The Axiom Pearl carries more off hits than anything else I have seen lately. It will be hard to beat the performance of this ball.

The Axiom Pearl is very strong for a shiny pearl.
The hit and carry is fantastic.
The color is very appealing.
Sales on the Axiom Pearl have been outstanding.

Axiom Pearl
The Axiom Pearl features the same low RG, high differential core found in the original Axiom but is now wrapped in NEX pearl. NEX pearl is Storm's latest rendition to its nano based covers. The design intent behind NEX was to enhance midlane traction without sacrificing downlane motion. This combination provides exactly what you want to see out of a stronger symmetrical ball. During the middle games of a tournament block, as soon as you are forced left it is important to keep a strong ball in your hands to control the midlane. The Axiom Pearl provides the midlane control needed with the energy retention required to get the ball through the pins properly. This ball reaction reminds me a lot of the SonIQ and Marvel Pearl which were both staples in my bag a few years back. When compared to the Axiom, the Axiom Pearl is 2 to 3 boards more overall and 2 to 3 feet later downlane. When thrown against the Hyroad, the Axiom Pearl provides much more traction and slows down much faster. Be sure to stop into your local Storm VIP pro shop and preorder your very own Axiom Pearl for the October 9th release!
