Welcome to Dynamics Review! In this monthly series, you will see reviews of some of the hottest balls on the market.

Storm Physix



RG 2.48

Diff 0.053

INT DIFF 0.017

Storm Physix has a design intended to have hook potential between the Sure Lock and the Code X for ball reaction.This one has a new designed core (atomic core).The coverstock is hybrid with two parts solid and one part pearl. This ball reads the midlane and has strong backend motion.Definitely a ball for moderate to oily conditions.
Storm Hy-Road X



RG 2.57

Diff 0.046


The Storm Hy-Road X is the latest addition to a long legacy of versatile bowling balls. The R2X solid reactive cover is polished. This will create long skid and with the inverted Fe2 core, you will see strong snap on the backend.Best on medium to dry conditions
Ebonite GB3



RG 2.48

Diff 0.048


The Ebonite Game Breaker 3 pearl is the follow up to the original solid.Using the same core as the solid, low RG with medium differential then adding the pearl cover allows this ball to be very clean – easy skid through front part of the lane.The stored energy provides good snap on the backend.This ball will work well on moderate to drier conditions depending on your ball speed and rev rate.
Motiv Trident Abyss



RG 2.49

Diff 0.054

INT DIFF 0.017

The Motive Trident Abyss is the strongest ball Motive has produced to date.The core (Turbulent core) is Low RG with the high differential.The cover is Coercion HV3, this cover is promised to really dig in when lanes are oily.This ball will benefit low rev players as well as speed dominant bowlers.The in-between players will need high volumes of oil for this ball to retain energy and continue on the backend.


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

Symmetrical – less track flare, longer skid, later hook


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.
