The Inverted Fe2 weight block has historically had a higher RG orientation. The higher the RG, the more resistant the ball will be to changing direction as it travels down the lane. NeX first made its debut on the Axiom™, the newest touchstone from which all other balls are compared. The finishing touches clock in at 3000-grit Abralon, which has become the benchmark standard of surface profiles. As you can see, there’s more to every ball than meets the eye.

Smartly designed Inverted Fe² Technology

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.

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 Solid 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

Hy-Road Max is Awesome!!!
Just bowled league for the 3rd week with new ball. 684 first night, 628 second, and 700 last night. Dropped from 15 to 14 and this ball works great for someone like me who rolls the ball around 11.8 - 12.2 in speed. I like the ball motion and it mixes the pins very well. I don't leave as many 1o pins as my other balls do.

Strikin' to the MAX!!!
Storm Hyroad MAX - NeX solid coverstock - Inverted Fe2 core
3000ab grit finish from factory - 5000ab grit for testing.
layout - 60 x 5 x 35
On older HPL panels with super wet fronts and sparky backends I practice and bowl league on 1 night a week the reaction was a little calmer then I though it would be. I attended several ball demos where this ball was a BEAST .
I decided to enhance the coverstock to 5000ab grit to make the ball float on the front part of the pattern and not burn up in the front part of the lanes like my Axiom did with the same NeX cover and similar layout.
The ball ultra smooth in the transition part of the lane and silky through the pin deck. Very predictable with the NeX coverstock at 5000ab. The next generation of HyRoad is here and it strikes to the MAX!!!

Storm has added another ball to its popular Hyroad line. This ball fits pretty much right between my IQ Tour Nano Pearl and my Proton Physics in total hook. The color is eye catching and I like the Green Apple scent added to the ball. The Max did not get as dirty from the lane as I would have expected after rolling a few games. The Hyroad Max has a very smooth arch type motion. I did not see much back end on a regular house shot or a more modified house shot. I did not alter the surface yet, but plan on trying some polish to perk up the back end after I play with the box surface fir a while. I can see where this ball would blend out a difficult lane condition or let you control the pocket on a wet / dry pattern. I feel this ball will be good for people who want a lot of control in their ball reaction.

The Max has a very controllable ball motion.
The color and scent are very appealing.
This ball could be the one to bail you out on a difficult pattern.

great ball
I'm a high school bowler had it drilled 20 minutes before state and took 2 practice shots and went on to go perfect in 4 baker games.

almost perfect ball
Bought this 30 min before a tournament and did throw any practice games with it and still did great with it. it picks up earlier then I expected but all all around great ball. I will say that when you hit lighter pocket shots it goes down a lot better then high flush shots.

Ball with a Purpose
I drilled this ball with a specific purpose of being able to play straighter with increasing my ball speed. I drilled the ball with a strong 3.5 in pin. The strong NEX coverstcok had plenty of teeth to get the ball in a roll and inverted Fe2 core didn't make the ball over react in the friction. I was please to see the ball get to the pocket and roll through the pins properly. This ball let's me move right and play up the oil line. Ball Speed 19mph Rev rate 370.

The Hy-Road Max features the legendary Inverted Fe2 weight block with the NeX solid cover. If the cover sounds familiar, it skins the Proton PhysiX and Axiom, two balls that handle oil and blends the pattern.

What will you see when you use the Hy-Road Max? You can expect to see the lime green bomber handle an above-average oil load. Knowing the behavior of the NeX cover, I hit mine with Storm Step 3 polish before I penciled a line on it. This ball has a strong midline move that aligns with the shape we have all grown to expect from a Hy-Road. I have an appreciation for the shape, it allows me to creep left, and SEND IT without the fear of overreacting to the dry.

I positioned the Hy-Road Max in my bag to catch the lane after it transitions from a stronger piece, and there is still too much juice on the lane for the lower end pieces to shape.
