    Phase V

    I am higher speed, rev challenged 220-250ish, high tilt, high rotation, and super low track player. The Phase 5 has definitely become one of my favorite newer releases. I drilled mine 5x3x2 and my axis point is 3 1/4 right and 7/8 up. The Phase 5 is a perfect addition to my arsenal because it allows me to ball down from my Exotic GEM, stay right, but still provides the same shape and continuation I need. This ball definitely does not disappoint and the Blueberry Crumble scent is amazing!

    Phaze V by Roto Grip Rick

    Storm Phaze V Layout and surface information: 5.5 x 4.5 x 3 out of box with Reacta Gloss - but adjusted to 4K Fast. My intention for this Phaze V was to add it to my new 6 ball tournament arsenal line for mid to heavy length and volume condition tournaments where I know the surface tends to be a little tougher to deal with, or just know that piece I can lean on when needed like most higher level bowlers that use Phaze IIs, iQ Tours, or Hy Road lines. I use more hybrid pearlized and pearlized covers over solid coverstocks. I found that the surface adjustment fitted better to my game of higher revs, and mid to low ball speeds. Using it out of the box the Phaze V floated on the fronts and mids of the lane and did not quite come off the pattern like my “eyes” like to see. I need a little earlier motion for my comfort zone. If the balls take too long to develop in the back end, I tend to try to force it straighter or do something that I know won’t work well, but it is human nature to try to “control” things. The Phaze V ball did recover a ton when I opened up the angles to feed the ball farther down the lane and make the breakpoint closer to the backend but without duck hooking and hitting behind the 1-2 pocket. It 100 PERCENT shreds the pins once it gets there. I really, really love my Phaze V at 4K fast finish.

    Storm Phaze V

    Layout: 45 x 4 5/8” x 40 The Phaze V has become my go-to ball for the medium-lighter house shot conditions that I see on a day-to-day basis. It is very clean through the front of the lane, and has a strong backend reaction without being too quick. I would classify it as a hard arc reaction. I'm able to play straighter with it, or move in deeper when the lanes break down. I don't like using the Phaze V when fresh heavier amounts of oil are present; the Fate is better if there is only a bit too much for the Phaze V, or (of course) the Phaze II if there is a lot more oil.

    Phaze 5

    The rebirth of the beloved Phaze 4, the Phaze 5 is coming at you! The Phaze 5 has the R2S pearl coverstock and the trusted core found in all the phazes. I will say that the Phaze 5 is close to the 4, but a little more cleaner and harder off the spot. I see this ball succeeding the most on heavier medium and long oil patterns after the first transition from your solid symmetrical to your pearl symmetricals. This is a ball we need back in the line and the R and D department did an amazing job releasing this piece. The ball is here to stay and I am sure everyone will be throwing this ball at league and a lot of tournament patterns. Don’t miss out on this hot piece and pick it up at your local storm VIP pro shop.

    Storm Phaze V Ball Review

    Storm Phaze V Ball Review Bowler Stats: Speed: 15.5 MPH Rev Rate: 300 RPM Tilt: 3-5 degrees Axis Rotation: 60 degrees PAP: 5 ⅜ over 1 ¼ up Layout: 5 X 41/2 X 23/4 VLS With the removal of the Phaze 4 from the line and the release of the Phaze V which has the same core and cover as the 4 but with a new Reacta gloss polish I was anxious to try it. I drilled the Phaze 4 too strong with a 4 inch pin placement and this caused the ball to be too early and forward off the end of patterns. Even though the R2S Pearl cover is a weaker one this ball still picks up in the midlane nicely and the Reacta Gloss polish gives it a smoother shape off the dry instead of the sharper shape of the 1500 polish surface of the Phaze 4. I was able to drill another Phaze 4 with the same layout as the Phaze V for my video review and the out of box finish for both of these balls gives them a slightly different look off the dry. They are both clean through the fronts, began to pick up in the midlane but with the polish on the Phaze 4 was quicker off the dry on the house shot than the Reacta Gloss polish on the Phaze V. Bowling a second shift league gives me the chance to use the Phase V during the first game as the lanes transition. Since the Phaze V was not released until after the PBA 50 season I have not used it on any sport patterns. After putting some games on the Phaze V I have scratched it with a 2000 abralon pad to help with the over/under reaction. Pete Dohan Storm Bowling Amateur Staff #StormNation

    Don’t expect a lot of down lane motion with this ball. Yes, I started the review that way because people think pearl=snappy. Well that’s not the case with this ball. The Phaze core is early at 2.48 and diff .051 so it wants to get started and continue down lane. The cover is so clean being R2S Pearl that you need to bowl on a surface where the midlane hooks and the backs are clean to see the “snappy” motion. If not, you will see a much smoother continuous motion. I drilled 2, 5 ¼ x 3 ½ x 2 ½ and 5 x 3 ½ x 4 ¾ and the 2nd one fits the situation better. I love using the “rico” pin down ball motion when the lanes are hooking an uncontrollable amount and this purpose for the ball is hard for a bowler to understand. Its used to completely blend out everything while continuing to keep the ball in play. This layout for me never sees the lane too early and I have the clean cover and layout to help make that possible. I will add, its not the best on PBA Patterns but very good on drier house conditions or when the lanes break down.

    Storm Phaze V review by Mike Craig

    I drilled up my PHAZE V 75 x 4.5 x 20. I lightly hit the surface with a 3000 pad to slightly dull the surface. I have thrown this on a couple of PBA50 longer patterns along with house. I put this up against other strong Utah pearls like the INFINITE PHYSIX, NIGHT ROAD, and 900 Global ZEN. On the longer pattern, this ball was pretty good once the pattern started to burn in the track. It gave me something I could start to open up the lane with and know it would finish and hit. On the house pattern, it would start to go sideways at the break point if my speed was too slow. Against the NIGHT ROAD, it was earlier and sharper off the spot. When the NIGHT ROAD was slow, the PHAZE V was the play as it was more continuous off the spot. Compared to the INFINITE PHYSIX, the PHAZE V was in play once the INFINITE start to slow down or stopped hitting. Compared to the Zen, they were very similar. Both stronger pearls that you could throw on oil and open up the lane with. If I had to choose, the ZEN is a little more proven for my style but you can't go wrong with either the PHAZE V or ZEN.

    Phaze V!

    The all new phaze v is the 5th of the phaze series. The velocity core wrapped with r2s and the all new reacta gloss is a 1,2,3 punch. We were all waiting for the response on what happened to the phaze 4 and the all new phaze v is living up to the hype and taking the cake. If you're looking for the latest and greatest phaze this is the ball for you. If you bowl nationals or pba events and need a new phaze 4 well look no further this phaze v is the ball. Get to your local pro shop and put your favorite layout on this piece and you wont be disappointed.

    Storm Phaze 5 – Not much to say except this ball is exactly what I was looking for! This ball gets through the front of the lane with ease, but it doesn’t overreact on the back end. I drilled mine pin down, and I’m thinking about drilling another one pin up. I won a tournament with this ball shortly after drilling it up. I have bowled some of my best games in league this year with it as well. It definitely deserves a spot in the bag.
