FEVER PITCH


The Fever Pitch is not as early as the Pitch Black™, but corners better than the Pitch Blue™ ever dreamt. We found the gap we needed to fill and we filled it. Hard. After extensive and thorough testing, we found the precise core dynamics that matched up flawlessly to this new and exciting cover: PWR+CTRL Urethane.

Something new - something different

The brand new Tour Block resembles the Hy-Road in that it is a core-less design, but with the internal ball removed from the Inverted Fe2 Technology found in every Hy-Road.



We're breaking new ground here

This never-before-seen urethane-esque coverstock, PWR+CTRL, is something that's been in development for quite a while. Storm Nation has sought after this material for quite some time.

Modern Day Bleeder!
My favorite bowling ball of all time is my Columbia Yellow Dot Bleeder. When the lanes are dry enough and I can get right with it, look out! Down and in death to the pins... Also remember, the great Glen Allison shot the first 900 series with a Bleeder while drinking Crown Royal.

Alas, on modern lane conditions, the amount of oil in normal league is too much for this vintage ball. So my quest was to get the same reaction and ball motion of the Bleeder, but on modern conditions. A tall order to say the least. I have tried urethane and it does not roll like the Bleeder, too early and strong. I have tried resin and it also does not roll like the Bleeder, too late and jumpy. Remember, the Bleeder is “Soft Polyester” which produces a very unique motion on the lane. My Bleeder has the pin 2 ¼” past my pap, so it gets up the lane clean and then rolls up hard in the back going strong across the lane in a smooth continuous motion.

Enter the Fever Pitch, not really urethane, not really resin, “something else.” Also, like my Bleeder, the Fever has no core, it is just a big sphere, so like a pancake weight block ball, I put my Bleeder's layout on the Fever to hopefully produce a similar ball motion. I then wet polished the Fever to 5000 grit Trizact and dry sanded “just my track” with a 5000 grit “Creating the Difference” pad. I did this because one of the properties of the Bleeder’s soft polyester is that it will dull out in the track and stay polished everywhere else. I wanted this same effect in my Fever.

The result?

The Storm Fever Pitch is the modern day Yellow Dot Bleeder! It rolls exactly like soft polyester. Same length and strong, smooth, controlled sweep across the lane. I can play from the right, in the dry, and watch it peel back time and time again. This ball hits hard, real hard due to its two-piece construction! The Fever is also soft like the Bleeder, coming in under 75 on the Durometer scale. And like my Bleeder, the Fever is also good for all spares. It’s a shame the Fever did not make a hit in the bowling world, but for an old school Full Roller like myself, it is like being back in the 70’s!
Also, this may be the most lovely looking ball ever made. Thank you Storm.
