Additional product information:

The Nova has taken a leap further into space than any ball before. Its revolutionary core has been paired with an innovative combination of coverstock technology to maintain the striking power you’ve come to expect from a Premier Line ball. So, while maintaining the aesthetic that the Premier line is known for, we’ve also brought the performance up another level.

Weight blocks like the Ignition Core rev up fast and finish strong with a more aggressive movement down lane. Need some extra oomph? Then look no further. The Ignition Core pumps out more than 6” of loaded flare potential! That’s more than enough differential to amp your adrenaline levels. Putting it in R2X means all that power and be harnessed with skilled precision. R2X fits seamlessly between the R2S™ and NRG™ formulas found on some of the most successful Storm balls in recent history. At an ideal 3000-grit finish, the perfect combination of length and strength can be achieved.

    Nova by Roto Grip Rick

    Storm Nova Coverstock: RSX Hybrid Block: Ignition Core Factory Finish: 3000-grit Tested Finish: 5000-grit Layout: 65 x 3 ½ x 50 I picked the surface change due to the lane conditions and Type of lane surface I bowl on. The Storm Nova was a great addition to line up a few weeks ago, and I had a grip and pitch changes thanks to Staff Manager Mike Sinek to get use to before I drilled another Nova and drill up new stuff. (I don’t like plugging balls; I donate them right to the juniors in my area). I found with the Nova with box surface a little bit early in movement when coming off of the pattern than my other recent hybrid coverstock balls. So, I ran the gauntlet of grits from 360, 500, 800, 1000, 1500,2000,3000,4000 and 5000, and was able to speed up the ball in the front part of the pattern, which in turn saved additional energy, but still was enough of RA valve on the cover to make a strong recovery and not “skate” through the back part of the lane. The ball fits great between my Roto Grip GEM and Roto Grip Hyped Pearl. With the cover as it has been prepped reminds A LOT of the Roto Grip Idol Magenta. If you still looking for that great MID strength bowling ball for the upcoming tournaments and next season, look no farther than the Storm NOVA.

    Storm Nova

    Storm Nova Core---Ignition Core Coverstock---RX2 Hybrid Reactive Late for the review but couldn't skip this one...the Nova deserves a great review. Out of the box, the Nova is strong and smooth. After a few games, lane shine sets in and it adds a touch of length and angle on the backend. It fills the small gap between my 900Global Reality and Roto Grip RST-X1. Since getting the Nova, it has been my go to ball on any shot with medium-heavy oil. I can still control it on medium stuff and it fights though the oiliest stuff we see in my area. So much versatility for a strong ball. Reminds me a lot of the RST-X1 as far as versatility goes...but it is definitely stronger. I can't wait for more releases with the Ignition core. It's been a hit for years overseas in the Gate Series and I am sure it will continue to gain popularity here in the US. Best Storm/RG/900G release for me since the Phaze 3 (my favorite).

    Ball Specs: Storm Nova 3000-grit R2X™ Hybrid Reactive Weight Block: Ignition™ Core (Asymmetrical) Color: Hot Pink/Lime/Jet Black Review: My first initial though on this ball was that it was going to be to close to my reality. But after throwing is some and making some surface changes, I quickly realized this ball was going to have its own place within my bag. Unlike most dull balls this ball doesn’t care if you move left, it almost encouraged it at times. When I added some polish to the cover that is when I fell in love with this ball. This ball allowed me to play deeper on the lane and still had enough pop on the backend to kick those pesky ten pins out. If you haven’t picked up your Nova yet make sure you do so now!

    Perfect Blend

    I'm a little late to the party with the Storm Nova, and I wish I wouldn't have waited on it! I went with a 45 X 5 x 65 layout, and the predictable, strong, continuous motion I get is what I needed and wanted out of this spot in the bag. Generally, hybrids and I have a great relationship and this is no exception. The 3000 grit finish is the happy medium between mid-lane and length. Being low RG and asymmetric, it fits closer to the top of the bag, but still under a Reality or a Gem. If either of those seems to be too much too early on whatever you're bowling on, this is the small step down from either of those.

    The Storm Nova features the R2X Hybrid Reactive coverstock surrounding the all-new Ignition Core. The RG at 15lbs is 2.49 with a differential of .052 and an intermediate differential of .019. The new Nova is a very versatile ball for an asymmetric. Usually, I need to put the asymmetric balls away after just a game or two because they start to lose to much energy. That is not the case with the Nova. The coverstock can handle some of the heaviest oil conditions but that’s not the end game for this ball. The Nova allows me to open my angles more than usual and throw it away from the pocket and still have enough energy to get back to the pocket and go through the pins properly in order to carry. For me the Nova fits right in between the Proton Physix which is about three boards left with my feet, and the Phaze II which is about three boards to the right with my feet when compared to the Nova. The Nova really blends out the typical wet/dry house pattern. I generally don’t use this strong of a ball on league conditions but I was able to throw a 300 the first night using this great addition to the Storm line.

    The Storm Nova is my favorite "pattern" ball. The ultimate ball when the pattern makes missing the head pin possible. While it has tons of control I don't like to use that word with it to give the wrong idea. While control is a definite strength it still has a fantastic move at the break point to make it strike a ton! The cover is equally good out of the box as it is polished. Definitely makes having 2 of them in the bag an option.

    The Storm Nova Is A Beast!!!

    I would strongly suggest a Storm Nova to a wide variety of players. Whether you’re a stroker, tweener or a cranker. This Nova has a wide footprint of users in my opinion. The Storm Nova is outstanding. Within the first two days, I had to drill a second one. I loved my first one that was drilled pin up so much, I had to drill a pin down version. Neither one disappointed. Both were very complementary to each other. For me they were a touch early for our HPL lane surface in Rockford, so I hit both of them with a 3000 abralon pad. This will allow the ball to glide through the fronts a tad easier and still retain that amazing motion down-lane that the Nova provides.
