Additional product information:

 The Belmo story would not be the same if his path didn't cross with Storm. For over 20 years they have formed a formidable team. Winning titles globally as an amateur and then breaking records and setting the PBA Tour on fire together for over adecade. The partnership between Storm and Belmo was not luck, it was their FATE.


Compared to the Dual-Drive™, Piston™, and Piston™ LD, the F-8 Core in the Fate has been packed with more differential than any previous Belmo ball before it. With those enhanced dynamics, the Fate gives the player more recovery and hitting power than any previous collaboration. This newly designed weight block was created to play multiple angles and have superior performance no matter your rev rate.

    Storm Fate Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

    One of the newest additions to the Signature line at Storm is the Fate. We all know who Jason Belmonte is. Him and the wizards at Storm have created a few balls previous to the Fate, but I believe this is the best one yet. After a few changes to the core and coverstock, the Fate gives bowlers a dynamic ball that can be used on all types of patterns. I’ve had a lot of success with the Fate and it goes most places with me, whether it’s league or tournaments. Mine is drilled as follows: 4.5 x 4 x 2. This puts the pin above my ring and CG just to the right of my center line. I’ve had the most success with it when my Gem, Reality, or Exotic Gem are just too strong. Also, I’ve seen it strike the most on shorter to medium patterns. Because the RG is 2.52 and differential is .053, that tells me this ball needs friction but will definitely come off the spot down lane. It’s still provides a round enough shape down lane that the response time is still extremely controllable. If you need a ball to complement your “bigger” balls in your bag, the latest collaboration between Belmo and Storm is a home run. Go drill a fate! #StormNation

    Fate - Ball Specs Cover Stock: REX Pearl Reactive Finish: Reacta Gloss Core: F-8 Core RG: 2.52 Differential: 0.053 Review The Fate is the latest Jason Belmonte signature ball. The Fate features the REX pearl cover combined with the newly designed F-8 core. To me the Fate is stronger version on the Hyroad pearl and who doesn’t need that ball in their bag. The Fate has more recovery and more hitting power than any ball in the Belmo line. The high RG 2.52 and differential at 0.053 makes this ball great on typical house shot patterns and on the transition for sport patterns. The Fate is a must have for league and tournament bowlers.

    Storm Fate review by Ethan Fiore

    The new collaboration with Jason Belmonte brings us the Fate from Storm. This ball has the ReX Coverstock and F-8 Core. If you’re a big fan of Jason Belmonte and have liked his past balls, you’ll definitely like this one! The Fate is a monster with being able to clear the fronts and the motion of looking like someone kicked it left. It has no boundaries as I did see it look better through transition but definitely playable on the fresh. It is a great compliment to pieces like a Phaze 2, IQ Tour, and Zen.

    Not as much backend as i was hoping for

    I was so excited for the next edition of the Belmo Series Ball with the Storm Fate. The Trend 2 was one of my favorite releases of the last five years. The R2X Pearl Coverstock matched up perfectly for me (and so many others) from the Marvel Pearl specifically and it doesn’t disappoint on this. I would say the Storm Fate fits right above a Hyroad Pearl in my bag but below the IQ Tour. For a Belmo release ball I would say it’s one of the weaker balls compared to the Pro Motion and Trends but it has a home in both my league and tournament bags. If you missed out on the Storm Fate, you’re missing out on somehow a sneaky gem.

    Layout - 60 x 5 x 30 Likes: Clean through the heads, strong backend reaction. Great 3rd game ball for my bag. For me the ball did not like seeing oil early in the league session. This ball was great after the lanes started to transition and I could not throw my benchmark Zen anymore. Dislikes: Pretty comparable to the Phase V in my opinion, just a bit stronger. Not different enough on a typical house shot to have both in the bag. Tournament bag however, definitely.

    Storm Fate

    The Storm Fate is an awesome shiny pearl ball. I believe it fits a gap we were missing in the line up. A good step down from balls like the Phaze 2 but a step up from the Road series balls. This ball still reads the middle of the lane very well for how clean through the fronts it is. It give a very continuous motion down lane while retaining plenty of angle. If you're looking for a good transition ball look no further than the Fate.

    Storm Fate

    Even though this review is coming out a little while after the release, many bowlers are getting their arsenal ready for the tournament season and if you are one of them you should make sure to include the Storm Fate. The REX Pearl Reactive cover of the Storm Fate helps the ball be clean through the front part of the lane, maintaining energy for the end. The finish of the Storm Fate is continuous and strong, with the smooth transition you would expect from a symmetrical ball. I drilled the Storm Fate very similar to that of my Phaze 4 and Phaze 5 and for me the Fate similar shape, similar length, but the Fate is a bit stronger on the end. I have also seen the Fate maintains strong reaction with the moves in as the pattern transitions on higher volume patterns. The Fate is a very versatile ball good on many different pattern volumes and lengths and as the pattern transitions. VERY good on flatter, tournament type patterns and if you are looking to add to your tournament arsenal or even just your everyday arsenal this is a GREAT choice for your bag! The pin buffer layout I used on the Fate is 4 x 3 5/8 x 1 ¾. I am a tweener who tends to spin it some.

    The awesome Fate!

RG • 2.52 Differential • .053 Layout • 4 x 41/4 x 13/4 Tester PAP • 5” R, 5/8” D Tester Axis Tilt • 11° Testers Rev Rate • 325 Test Pattern • 42’ T.H.S. (Typical House Shot) • Modified, Kegel Stone Street The Fate is another excellent release in the Storm Signature Series. And with its combination of the new F-8 symmetrical Core and the proven ReX Pearl Coverstock, the Fate delivered some very satisfying results on a THS for this straighter, high-speed/low-rev player. So, let's take a closer look and see why Fate belongs in your arsenal! When I first rolled the Fate, I was pleasantly caught off guard by the crisp yet balanced motion I saw from the F-8 symmetrical Core. First, I liked how the F-8 Core gradually builds momentum through the mid-lane and stores plenty of inertia as it heads toward the pins. And as the F-8 Core "stands up" and makes its move to the pocket, I like how the F-8 is decisive in its motion but also has a welcomed forgiveness that I didn't expect to see. And as I got more dialed in with the Fate, I could count on the F-8 Core to provide a clear margin of era that increased my strike percentage! Further, as it unleashed its stored inertia, I liked how the F-8 Core strikes with a brisk and powerful impact yet leaves enough energy for a strong continuation through the pins. And lastly, as a straighter, high-speed/low-rev player, I found the F-8 Core to be an excellent balance of torque and power that is reliable for my style. The ReX Pearl coverstock is an excellent choice for the Fate. However, the Reacta Gloss finish needed tweaking for my speed and rev rate. Surface is a straighter bowler's best friend, and on a THS, the surface can be the difference between striking or leaving you with ten-pin nightmares. So, I sanded the ReX Pearl with 1000-grit Abralon and followed it up with Storm's Step #3 (1500-2500) compound, and the results were outstanding! On a fresh THS, the Rex Pearl cut cleanly through the front part of the lane and had a crisp, biting motion through the mid-lane. And as the Fate made its way off the pattern, I liked that the ReX Pearl was decisive without overreacting off the exit. And as the night progressed, I enjoyed how the ReX Pearl kept its consistent motion without becoming jumpy or erratic through the spotty conditions. So, overall, I found that the Rex Pearl coverstock performed brilliantly on fresh and burned THS conditions. And with the proper surface adjustment, it produced some quite effective results. So, in conclusion, the Fate is a superb release in the Storm Signature series. And for any straighter, down-and-in player, the Fate is an excellent choice to complement your game. Furthermore, I highly suggest the Fate as your "go-to" when strong asymmetrical balls like the Storm Infinite Physix's become too much ball for the conditions. So, stop in your local Storm VIP Pro Shop and have the Fate ready for tonight's league! Your scores will thank you! Rick Klimowicz Storm Products Pro Shop Staff Roll the Ball Pro Shop Penndel, PA
