Storm Son!Q Bowling Ball Features:
The Storm SonIQ uses a weight block with a familiar shape, but its densities have been altered for this new release. The new Centripetal HD core utilizes a slightly lower RG and has a larger flare potential than the C3 Centripetal Control Core that was used in the very successful IQ Tour bowling balls. The added flare gives the SonIQ much more angle at the breakpoint, as well as more total hook than previous polished IQ releases like the IQ Tour Pearl and the IQ Tour Fusion. The cover on this ball is Storm’s R2S Pearl Reactive formulation, which has been a staple in the Storm product line for many years. Most styles will find that the SonIQ matches up best on medium volume oil patterns when used at its polished box finish.
The Son!Q is the progeny of one of the most dominant shapes in the Storm lineage: the Centripetal Core. Since its inception, the evolution of the design can be traced across the Centripetal Low Flare Core, C3 Centripetal Control Core, and now the Centripetal HD Core.
At first glance the Centripetal HD Core may look familiar, but deep down is where the magic truly happens. It is the densest core of any Storm ball to date producing an RG value of 2.47. Because the Centripetal HD Core’s center of gravity is extremely low, it consistently impacts the pins at the perfect spot every time maximizing carry.
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.
