NIGHT ROAD

The Storm Bolt doesn’t just identify a Storm bowling ball. It represents over three decades of tradition, a commitment to quality, and a promise to always roll better than ever before. The covers are robust. The cores are exact. Because when the scores add up, the thrill of sending all ten back tells you that it’s worth it.

Smartly designed Inverted Fe² Technology

Every Hy-Road™ is the result of master engineering and precise workmanship, all hand-built from start to finish. They are the foundation of the entire Storm bowling experience.This jewel of an engine generates more torque down lane than any ball in production. A technical tour de force, 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. This promotes a cleaner shape through the front part of the lane with a later transition down lane. This compact powerplant of a weight block utilizes more coverstock material. The result? More efficient power transfer to the pins at the point of impact.



THE ROAD GOES ON!

However, power means nothing if it isn’t properly harnessed. A qualified beast, ReX gave some impressive results during testing. Traditionally, the term “hybrid” suggests that both solid and pearl components coexist within a coverstock. When we joined R2S™ with NeX™ in the lab, the results exceeded our expectations. In our testing, we discovered that the Night Road read the midlane sooner than the Hy-Road Pearl thanks to its NeX foundation but produced similar backend and entry angle numbers because the chemical porosity of R2S is slightly denser than NeX. This provides the optimum response time to friction that impresses anyone who encounters it, whether you’re rolling it or watching it being rolled. The result is a ball that turns heads as well as it turns the corner.

Review:
This is probably my favorite Road Series Ball since the Hyroad X. I know the Road series has a great following but I have not been blown away like some people have. Some Road Balls seem to be conditional for me like the Hyroad Max and even the original Hyroad. For me through the Night Road is giving me a different look from the series than I am used to. I get more entry angle and continuation from the Night Road than the Max or Original. This ball fits between my Electrify G/O and Phase 5 in total hook. The Night Road has an excellent move to and through the pocket. I like the 4K fast surface for this ball. The Night Road is a better Hyroad X in my opinion and doesn’t need the surface care the Hyroad X did. I used to have to reshine my X after every 6 games. This ball has the thick cover and I am convinced this helps the carry and popularity of the Road Series of Balls. Although I like to go up the boards or use a slight belly type of shot I am pretty comfortable moving inside with this ball and keeping my carry percent high. The Night Road works very well on a house shot and uses the oil and friction to its advantage without being jumpy. I don’t see much lane shine on this ball when I am done rolling it.
We have drilled a good amount of these so far for my customers and we have seen great ball motions from a variety of styles. The customers are providing great feedback on this ball.

Summary:
The Night Road may be my favorite in the Road Series.
The Ball has a very strong back end move.
The Night Road plays well from inside while maintaining hit.
This ball goes through the pins with authority!

Night Road by RGR
Storm Night Road: Fe2 weight block with the ReX pearl cover stock. 4k
fast out of the box and the layout is 60 x 6 ¾ x 60, which is a new one
for me in my arsenal. Blending the best of two proven coverstocks of
NeX and R2S was next level from the team at Storm RD crew. Not
having a Hyroad in my bag for several years, I forgot how forward
rolling and great overall reaction from this special piece. I was not a fan
of the Hyroad X or the Hyroad Max, those two balls were more for
certain conditions and patterns, where in turn, the Night Road fit more

across all board including length of patterns, volume of conditioner
used and the actual condition and type of lane surface. For the past
year I relied very heavily on my Hyped Hybrid and Storm Phaze III for
being those staple balls, I will be replacing the Phaze III with the new
Night Road. Marking this ball as a “benchmark ball” would be a shame,
because it more than the “Middle Road” when it comes to overall
performance. Thanks to the team at SPI for allowing me to repping the
best brand in the sport of bowling.
