Additional product information:


The Incite brings a new level of excitement to the table with a core direction that has yet to be seen. Our mission is to deliver balls with ultimate precision to meet the needs of your game. It all starts with our commitment to constantly push the standards of bowling ball manufacturing. When you open your box stamped withthe Storm script, you know you’re playing with the very best.


At the heart of all mathematics are numbers. Rest assured, there are lot of numbers built into every core.

In physics, tensors are important because they provide a concise mathematical framework for formulating and solving physics problems in areas such as mechanical design. The Tensor Core forms a multi-dimensional array with a uniform type that creates opposing torque forces on an asymmetric map. The product resembles a stronger, more powerful symmetric core model that blends the line between top-drawer asymmetric and the more traditional symmetric approach thanks to a modest touch of asymmetry between the Y and Z axes.

This is a unique concept in the Storm line will fit the needs of many. No balance hole? No problem. Pro shop operators can drill the Tensor Core like they used to with intent to put a flare-increasing hole in a specific spot. The slim intermediate differential accomplishes the same feat without any extra effort.

R4S has the highest reactivity of any ReactorTM series cover and bridges the gap between mid- range ThunderTM Line and high-end PremierTM Line balls. Being a hybrid formulation, users can expect a wide array of benefits to be found on a multitude of conditions.

    Storm Incite

    Posted by Cooper Mathewson on Jun 17th 2021

    Storm Incite Coverstock: R4S Hybrid Reactive Core: Tensor The Storm Incite brings a new core, the Tensor Core, to the lineup. This core/cover combo brings a different reaction that I see in my current arsenal. I see the Incite being a good compliment to my Roto Grip RST X-1. For me, the Incite starts to read earlier and smoother than my RST. Incite is a little weaker overall (comparing to the RST) too. When the RST is going too long or I need to adjust my angle, the Incite will be an easy ball to switch to. The Incite is another piece that shows how Storm is doing a great job filling arsenal gaps without too much overlap across the 3 brands (Storm, Roto Grip, 900 Global).

    Incite review by Tommy Gollick

    Posted by Tommy Gollick on Jun 17th 2021

    The Incite from Storm, the Bowler’s Company, has an all new weight block called the Tensor Core, and uses the R4S Hybrid coverstock. The Tensor Core has an Rg of 2.50, a differential of 0.053, and an Intermediate differential of 0.013 in 15lb bowling balls. The color combination of goldenrod, graphite, and crimson with silver labels really pops on the shelf. The cover is finished from the factory with a 3000 grit abralon finish. The Tensor core is a mildly asymmetrical weight block that is to emulate a symmetrical ball, with a balance hole. I drilled the Incite using a 4.5 X 3 X 4 layout. This layout, for me, helps to promote ease through the front of the lane, with a solid, strong continuous motion through the backend and through the pins. The Incite provides ample traction in the midlane with the box finish, but does smooth out a bit over time with usage. A freshening up with a new abralon pad brings back the solid midlane traction that the R4S Hybrid coverstock provides. I like to use my Incite when my Axiom with the same pin placement starts to get a little lazy around the corner because of oil carry-down on medium to higher volume patterns. The Axiom is perfect when the backends are fresh and I need a slower continuous motion through the pins, but as the lane goes through transition, the Incite is the ball to go to because it has a more defined motion off the spot and gives me better angle than what the Axiom provides. The Incite is also a great ball down from my Proton Physixs with 4.5 X 2 X 4 layout. When the Proton gets too angular, but I still need a defined motion, I can drop down to the Incite and get more length and have less angle through the pins. I really like the Incite. The Incite is a ball that has a decent amount of pattern coverage, and the coverstock takes changes well. Stop by your local Storm VIP pro shop, and drill an Incite today. Bowl up a Storm!

    The Storm Incite!

    Incite: Master Series Coverstock: R4S Hybrid Reactive Finish: 3000 Grit Abralon Core: Tensor Asymmetric Core RG: 2.50 (15lb) Differential: 0.053 (15lb) Int. Differential: .013 Layout: 4 x 4 x 1 Tester PAP: 5 1/8 R, 1/2 D Lane Condition: Medium – Heavy Pattern Review: 42’ Typical House Pattern The all new Storm Incite lights a new dimension into ball motion. The new Tensor core combined with R4S Hybrid coverstock brings some new thoughts and ideas to your game. Let’s take a deeper look into this THS review from an older, straighter, low-rev player’s viewpoint. The new Tensor asymmetric core rolled quite briskly down lane from the first shot. I found the core to rev a bit earlier like a symmetrical core, yet it took its time to stand up down lane like an asymmetric. With the combined look of asym/sym in mind, this core rolled best for me with more firmness off my hand and generally more of an “attack” to the lanes. I needed to get this core down lane vigorously to retain its energy at the pins; otherwise being a lower rev player using a soft hand would cause the core to roll out and leave those “I felt it off my hand” ten pins. I’m a huge fan of hybrid coverstocks for my style and the R4S Hybrid clearly delivers on the Incite! This cover LOVES oil! I had fun starting out on fresh oil standing inside and rolling 12-16 rather than standing far right and looking 6 -11. The R4S cover has a strong bite to it and being a higher speed player I enjoyed the traction it provided while rolling outside of my comfort zone. The 3000 grit box finish reacted well early on, but a tweak to 4000 grit and a bit of lane shine brought the best overall reaction out of the R4S for me. In conclusion, the new Incite is a strong and effective ball from Storm. For THS bowlers, you will find the Incite fits well with longer house patterns and higher volumes of oil. Further, because of the uniqueness this ball provides, I would strongly suggest the Incite for those youth or adults looking to transition from THS to challenge patterns. The Storm Incite clearly has its place. Add it to your arsenal today! Rick Klimowicz Storm Products Pro Shop Staff Roll the Ball Pro shop Penndel, Pa

    Love the ball

    Posted by DeeRonn Booker on Jun 8th 2021

    Storm Incite Before drilling Rg. 2.50 Diff .053 Int. .013 I drilled this ball 5 ¾ x 4 x 2. I went with a longer pin to pap because the after drilling numbers on this ball are higher and I wanted to see the ball get through the fronts a little easier. The Incite is dull out of box, so I decided to shine it. I use 5 ¾ pins on asymmetrical balls with higher than a .050 diff, because I like to see my ball glide through the fronts when the front part of the lane is hooking. I love the colors, and it looks awesome going down the lane. My recommendations for slower ball speed players are to bring up the cover to a shiny finish to get the ball to store more energy.

    I bowl on lanes that are low friction, oiled by a minimum wage none bowler. The conditions can be challenging. This ball gets through the midlane and hooks just before the pins. It works better than my Knock Out. Very happy with it.

    Storm Incite

    Posted by Michael LeViner on May 9th 2021

    Layout: 65 x 4 ½ x 35 The Incite, despite having a lower mass bias differential, still has an absolute ton of mid-lane roll. It gets through the front of the lane a little easier than the traditional high-end sanded asymmetrical ball, but then digs in throughout the midlane and backend. It is right at home for fresh house shots, or any medium-heavy oil lane condition. In a comparison to the Rubicon, Roto Grip's lower asym differential ball, the Incite is definitely stronger overall. I would place it below the Proton Physix, but stronger than balls like the Axiom and HyRoad Max. For most people, this could easily be the strongest ball in their bag.

    Incite by RGR

    Posted by Roto Grip Rick on Apr 24th 2021

    Storm Incite - R4S hybrid reactive coverstock - Tensor Core 3000ab grit finish from factory - layout - 65 x 2 x 50 This is by far the most technically advanced bowling ball I ever owned . As relayed by Alex Hoskins in his youtube video about the Tensor core with the different layers allow the core to have higher RG areas closer to the surface and the low points producing lower RG areas. With doing a 2 inch P2P layout, Bret at Bowlers' Supply able him to leave more of the rounded peaks undisturbed allowing the ball to save energy downlane and not slow down too early like a symmetric ball with a 2 inch P2P layout. The R4S cover adds more power downlane then the R2S has produced in the past. The R4S cover does take cover changes very well. From 500 grit to 4000 grit. I decided to take it back down to 3000 grit because it suited the pattern best over the course of several games. Compared to a Proton Physix, the incite is longer and stronger from the foul line to the pit. Will keep this one in the ball arsenal for a good long time.
