Storm’s® Premier™ Line continues to be the most successful high performance line of equipment on the market.   From the original El Nino™ and its split density technology to the Paradigm™ and X-Factor™ series with its multi-disc technology and now the performance proven Virtual™ series, we continue to push the limit of technology and innovation. 

The Invasion™ features the next generation of advancement in core and coverstock technology.  Our first goal was to develop a strong asymmetrical design different than any other.  The concept was to create contours along the RG planes to ensure a stronger preferred spin axis.  We did this by developing intersecting contoured bands from the X-axis along the Y and Z axes.  These bands are developed at specific arcs to maximize RG and differential values along the planes.  In turn, this translates into a quicker revving core with a more defined moment of inertia or breakpoint unlike any prior design found on the market. 

The all new Origin™ core boasts a 2.48 RG value with .057 total differential and a .017 intermediate differential.  Using C.A.T.S., we tested the Origin™ core up against the Shape Lock™-HD core with same coverstock to see the differences, and we were amazed by the results.  The Origin™ core started into the “hook” phase about 3 feet sooner and created a stronger entry angle to the pocket.  Usually when we get the ball started into the “hook” phase sooner we see less entry angle to the pocket, but this core with the contoured bands along the RG planes definitely showed us something different. 

The finishing touch to the Invasion™ is the R3X™ coverstock.  This third generation of Reactor™ series coverstock has the highest Ra values ever produced by Storm products.   Based on the USBC Ball Motion Study we know that higher Ra values produce more ball motion in the oil, and this coverstock is no exception.  We saw a 9% increase in friction values in the oil and an increase of 5% down the lane over its predecessor R2X™ utilizing C.A.T.S. testing. Innovation at its finest!
