SUPER NOVA

Performance happens when bowler and ball work together as one. When the ball becomes an extension of the bowler’s will. That’s performance we measure not on a scoreboard, but in our hearts..

BE SUPER LIKE A NOVA

The Super Nova is extraordinary by design. Showcasing the new and dynamically intense Ignition Core, the Super Nova features a tour-inspired design that enables better versatility on a wider array of oil patterns. Weight blocks like the Ignition Core rev up fast and finish strong with a more aggressive movement down lane. Need some extra oomph? Then look no further. The Ignition Core pumps out more than 6” of loaded flare potential! That’s more than enough differential to amp your adrenaline levels.



THE UNIVERSE IS EXPLODING

Since surface plays such a pivotal role in ball reaction, we knew that we had to select just the right coverstock and finish in order to make the Super Nova live up to its billing. That’s why we selected NeX Solid Reactive for this big-hooking beast. NeX has met and exceeded all our expectations in the lab and on the lanes, combining the robust midlane read you’d expect from a heavy oil ball while maintaining the strong entry angle needed to maximize pin carry. The NeX on the Super Nova will come in a 2000-grit box finish and with an eye-catching lime, azure, and black color scheme that will look good on the rack, in your bag, and on the lanes.

Review:
The new Storm Super Nova is a very strong early rolling ball. I was really shocked by how much more back end I had with the Super Nova compared to the Original Nova. I had a good look with this ball when I started it in the oil and let it find a break point down lane. The Super Nova will be a great tournament ball with the sanded finish but I and many others are seeing better results with a high polish on this ball. It is just way too strong for a standard house shot with its dull finish. At box surface I put this ball above my Infinite Physix making it the strongest Storm Branded Ball I own. My Roto Grip Gem still has the edge in total hook over all my gear. With a polished surface the Super is still stronger than my infinite and rolls great in the fresh as long as the center is not stingy with the oil. I find this ball to be more versatile than the Original and have posted some nice games with it. I have found also that, it is a ball that you need to put away and ball down to maybe a Phase 5 pretty quickly but this ball will let you know because it is easy to read the motion. This ball has been selling well especially to those needing more hook potential in a ball. If you are looking for a nice strong predicable ball that hits hard the Super Nova would fit the bill nicely.

Summary:
The Storm Super Nova is a strong rolling ball.
The Ball reads heavy oil patterns very well.
The Super Nova hits hard and has good back end for a strong ball.

Super Nova by RGR
Storm Super Nova: Ignition core with NeX solid reactive cover stock,
with the cover being prepped at 2000ab. When drawing up the layout, I
usually use a longer pin to pap on the stronger ASYS cores but went a
different direction with this one with a layout of 80 x 1 ½ x 65.
Comparing it to the Storm Nova, the motion was so much earlier and
STRONGER than the Nova and the Infinite Physix. Knowing that the ball
would be so much stronger than I need on the center that has the older
HPL, I decided to use it at the other center I bowl and practice at that
has ever SPL and much better blended pattern from the outside boards
and in towards the middle of the lane. I could not imagine how I could
use a stronger pin to pap on this ball on this THS and lane panels, the
short pin allows earlier movement, and the ball still stored a HUGE
amount of energy going into the hook and roll stage of the ball motion.
The ball performed better than I expected because I am rev dominated
and tilt strong and usually have over / under reactions with stronger
ASYS cores. The NeX solid matches very well for me with this core. I see
a lot of STARS showing up on the scoreboard with this ball for me. It is
“out of this world”! If you are looking for that stronger than normal
performance ball, the Super Nova is an excellent choice,
