Description 


 

Starting at the center, the technical team incorporated our strongest asymmetrical design to date, a shape with .028 intermediate differential, known as the G2™ core. WhyG2? Because it’s the second generation of our Shape-Lock™ HD core which powered the original Virtual Gravity™!

 

This new shape helps you best select the proper layout to produce the desired migration path and resulting ball motion, a system recognized as the Vector Layout System™. This helps explain the theories behind the Lightning Strikes PSA™ drilling guide which brought you the pin buffer system of laying out bowling balls.

 

For the cover, we involved nanotechnology to create premium traction in oil. In fact, NRG™ creates 15% more surface roughness that only increase over time. You might remember how nanotechnology allows for peaks to be created on the sides of other peaks? Well, it’s the real deal, and you’ll see the difference the moment you step up on the lanes.

 

The new Sync by Storm – sure to help you “sync” up your game so you can bowl your best!

Storm Sync
I drilled my Sync 45x4x70 (Axis: 3 3/4-7/8 up) and I noticed a lot more overall hook then any other solid asymetrical ball I have ever thrown.  This ball reacts extremely well on medium to heavy oil conditions.  I left the cover out of the box, and saw a very consistent and continuous motion.  I also tried it at 2000 polished and got a few more feet down the lane but still a similar motion.  Another winner from Utah!!!

COMMENTS

Likes: I was very excited for this ball to be released and to get my hands on one of these.  In the past I have always had trouble with aysmmetricals losing energy downlane.  The one exception to the rule for me was the Virtual Gravity Nano.  So when this ball was released I wanted to drill it with a layout that I would be able to use more on house patterns.  I drilled this ball with a 5.5 by 3.5 drilling.  I took the ball and gave it some polish right away.  The one thing I really like about this ball is that I do not have trouble with the ball losing energy downlane.  Most of the time I have trouble with the ball losing energy.  This ball picks up very nice in the midlane and still continues strong on the backend.  

Dislikes:  With my speed and revrate I do not get to throw this ball as much as I'd like.  

I would say this ball is great for those who are looking for midlane control with a Strong backend reaction.

Sync YOUR Game!
The Sync is the latest ball from Storm in the premier line. The cover is the same NRG solid reactive found on the Virtual Gravity Nano. The core is called the G2, and has the strongest preferred spin axis of any Storm ball to date. The Sync has a very low RG of 2.47, with a differential of 0.058, and a PSA of 0.028 in 15lb balls. 
I drilled the Sync with a 5x3½ x4 ½. This puts the pin below my ring finger, and PSA out on my VAL. I used a large hole; 2” down my VAL form my PAP. I wanted this ball to be usable on house conditions, and be the go to ball from my Marvel and IQ. Also, we tend to see more of the shorter patterns in the East region, and the need for control of the lane more often than not outweighs the need for a lot of board coverage.
For the initial testing, I kept the Sync at the box finish. The 4000 abralon surface is more than enough cover prep to get the ball to change direction and slow down, without burning out for our house condition. I used a Virtual Gravity Nano as the comp ball. The Nano is drilled the same as the Sync, with the only difference being the size of the balance hole (the Nano has a very small hole, while the Sync has a large hole).
The Sync has a slightly earlier break point, but much more defined move than the Nano for me. I would best describe the Nano as being a banana shape with a very hard arch, while the Sync is more of a sharper move, with roll towards the pocket. The Sync is a few boards stronger than the Nano, as far as total boards covered is concerned. 
The Sync fits in my arsenal as being the most aggressive reaction, while still maintaining control of the lane. I can cover more boards with weaker balls than the Sync, but those bowling balls seem to see the transition of the lane more than the Sync. For example, I have an identically drilled IQ. The Sync will cover more boards on fresh oil, but as the lane starts to break down, the IQ starts to hook too high, and split, forcing me to make a 3 or 4 board move to keep the ball in the pocket, where as the Sync may leave a 6 pin, and only force me to move only 1 or 2 boards to strike again. This comes in very handy while bowling regionals, and moving pair to pair and seeing big differences in the topography of a center. For me, this is a big advantage of very strong asymmetric weight blocks. The motion characteristic is a little more “built in” to the ball, compared to a symmetrical piece that is looking for friction to help the ball go through the different hook phases of motion. I have had good success with my Sync on the Kegel pattern Boardwalk(high volume at 35 feet), our house condition that is 38 feet, USBC white pattern, 2012 USBC nationals pattern, and also on the 2013 US Open 42 foot pattern. Surprisingly enough, the Sync seems to have a lot of pattern coverage for me, more so than I would’ve expected based on how strong the cover and core is. For my bowling style, and my game, the Sync is a big step forward over the Virtual Gravity Nano. I needed the right environment for the VG Nano to work for me, where as the Sync can adapt better with a slight change of release, or by applying different spin on the ball.
Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to read my review of the Sync.

Whole lot of ball!
My Sync is laid out 5X4 1/2X3. If you are looking for a heavy oil ball that can read the mid-lane and create angle into the pocket, look no further. The Sync is a TON of bowling ball. It is smoother through the mid-lane than my Nano, but it has a stronger reaction at the end of the oil pattern. Anyone that may have a lower rev rate, but still wants a big on-lane reaction, this ball is a great choice. It is VERY strong, but not in a way that is uncontrollable. With my oil pattern being on the lighter side, my lanes being wood (higher friction), and my rev rate being just under 400, this ball is hard for me to use during league. The ones I have drilled for other people on the other hand, all work great with lower rev rates than mine. I used mine while practicing for USBC Open Championships, and it worked excellent on the team pattern. When my Reign of Power coverstock (1000 grit) started reading too early, the Sync took over. It will definitely be in my bag for Nationals.
