The Statement has a new core.More mass located at the bottom of the core means more mass in the Southern hemisphere of the ball.The ball will store energy longer and continue on the backend.Two separate coverstocks, Aggression Solid CFI and Aggression Pearl CFI.The solid will work best on heavier volumes of oil, while the pearl will work best on medium to lighter oil patterns.

The Fever Pitch has a modified, inverted Fe2 Core. Storm removed the internal ball in the core and added a new cover, the PWR+CTRL urethane.The Fever Pitch hooks later and stronger than the Pitch Black while retaining a smooth predictable reaction.

Motive Golden Jackal

The Golden Jackal brings the legend of a Pearl Jackal to life.The Hexion SE cover produces outstanding downlane motion without sacrificing traction in the oil.The Predator V3 core increases track flare.This makes the Golden Jackal more responsive off the friction.
Legend

Cores

Asymmetrical – more track flare, stronger hook off the friction.

Symmetrical – less track flare, longer skid, later hook

Covers

Solid – earlier hook, smoother down lane

Hybrid – medium skid, hooks in the mid-lane

Pearl – longest skid, latest hook

REMEMBER: Your revolution rate and ball speed have a dramatic effect on when and how much your ball hooks. The drilling layout is also an important variable that has an influence on your bowling balls motion. The bowling ball surface can be modified to adjust when your ball hooks. Consult your pro shop for options on matching you to a ball for your needs.
