TREND

You may already be familiar with some of our previous collaborations with Jason Belmonte. From the PRO-Motion™ came the reputable Piston Core, a fantastically balanced shape that works for almost everyone and with any layout you can imagine. And to expand upon the ball motion already created by this phenomenal core shape, we explored a wide variety of coverstock options to create the most powerful ball ever in the Signature™ Line.To showcase the backend potential, we selected several variations of the Reactor™ family of coverstocks as they are the most responsive in the industry. As we worked through testing, it was clear that R2S was the best option for this one! “You want better carry? Then you need angle into the pocket. The Trend is what you have been waiting for,“ said Jason Belmonte. And no matter what your rev rate or how many hands you use to bowl, the Trend will give you a quicker response, more defined breakpoint, just what you need for better carry.

The engine of change

The Piston core brings with it months of testing and validation in conjunction with the best player of our time: Jason Belmonte. Developed specifically for his line, the Piston Core creates separate helical archs that make the shape corkscrew as it tumbles. You can see the channels on the sides of the Piston Core and the large band through the equator which displaces the mass in a very specific way.



The R2S delivers a perfect balance

R2S is synonymous with some of the most successful balls in recent history like the Hy-Road, Frantic, and the IQ Tour. It is renowned for clearing the front part of the lane with an unprecedented movement on the backend. The consistency of this shell through the heads is something to be marveled at.

Never fails to perform!
I'm a newbie to bowling, been casually bowling for the past two years in Singapore. Ever since I have gotten this ball, it never fails to perform!
My layout is 4-4-2, and the ball path predictable and helpful in my bowling journey.

A new Trend!
Hey everyone, this is Storm staff member Josh Shoemaker here with another ball review for the Storm Trend. As always, I would like to thank Storm for providing the equipment I use every time I step out onto the lanes and logo infusion for making sure I always look good no matter what! Today I will be bowling on a standard 44’ house shot. The Trend is the latest Storm and Jason Belmonte collaboration. It features the same piston weight block found in the Promotion but is now wrapped in R2S pearl. The Trend comes out of the box with Storms signature 1500 grit polished finish. The Promotion was known for its super slow response time with having a SPEC cover. The Trend is at the complete other end of the spectrum and provides a much cleaner and faster response to friction. Although the core/cover is very similar to a Hyroad pearl, I find the Trend to be a littler earlier and straighter off the end of the pattern. When compared to the OG Hyroad, the Trend is slightly straighter off the end of the pattern as well as being a touch weaker overall. The Trend is now available for purchase from any Storm VIP pro shop!
