    ABsolute power MID Control

    Posted by one for the MIDS on Apr 2nd 2024

    STORM – Absolute Power Patterns used for review: Pattern A1: 43 Ft 29Mls 7:1 COMMENTS LAYOUT: 4X4X2 , I use multiple hand positions and speed changes which changes rev rate, read and speed of ball. PLAY The STORM Absolute Power is a pretty ball. It has a color swirl that pops and definitely a shelf looker. Now, let’s talk testing. Overall, the AP rolled well and performed as expected. I was only able to test the AP on one patter. Additional testing will be done on a few other patterns as normal. Pattern A1: The Absolute Power was used on one of the four house patterns at 43ft. This pattern being a longer pattern with moderate volume from 8-8 and more friction from 8-2 with 2 different oils. The AP read just past the mid lanes each time and made a continuous move to the pocket. Original play for practice was 15 to 10. After a game and line change to 12-5, the AP was a bit much for the pattern if speed dropped or rev rate increased in the same area. The AP would hold the line but I had to be clean at the bottom as not to get the over/under skid flip. Real keys here are how it read and controlled the pattern and as the pattern developed for ball changes and moves left, and definitely for my style of play to be left and stay inside. HOWEVER, the AP when backing off of it a bit and going more forward in the release played better than expected and controlled more area with power from the right. After initial testing….I’m not sure where I would fit this ball in my bag. I only say that because of current arsenal set up. LOW DOWN: The Storm Absolute Power will be a better ball for those bowlers who are low to medium in rev rate and speed. It will give you the look that you want without sacrificing big moves fast. More to follow on challenge and sport patterns.

    The Most Versatile Asymmetrical Solid

    Posted by Joel Eyssen on Apr 1st 2024

    Absolute Power is very strong asym solid that is not traditional. It’s not a forward piece. It’s a very continuous piece that wants to pick up in the midlane but continue really strong off the spot. It also takes to surface adjustments really well. So whether you want to play straighter or get in and create some angle this is the ball for you.

    Performance that’s ABSOLUTE!

    Posted by Anthony Santos on Apr 1st 2024

    Rev Rate: 315 rpm Avg. Ball Speed: 14.5 mph PAP: 5 1/4" x 1" The Storm Absolute Power is the solid version of the Absolute and features the masterfully crafted Sentinel Core, which boasts consistent continuation through the pins. Not to mention, the Blueberry Orange Cake fragrance adds a nice touch to a sweet release. The OOB 4000 grit finish gives a great baseline reaction for medium volume patterns. I’ve found a lot of success taking the finish down to 1000 or 2000 for the fresh. The cover takes to lane shine well and allows the ball to maintain it’s down lane punch later in the blocks. You’ll find that this ball is a great step up from the Virtual Energy Blackout or a step down from the Harsh Reality. You are going to love this ball!

    Storm Absolute Power

    Posted by Rich Kollmeyer on Mar 30th 2024

    Layout: 5 x 4 x 3 1/2 VLS It’s early on in the year, but the Absolute Power will be a strong contender for ball of the year for 2024. The Absolute Power features the R2S Deep coverstock, this time in a solid version to complement the original Absolute’s R2S Deep Pearl. The Solid version comes out of the box at 4000 grit Abralon and it seems like a perfect match for the ball. The higher grit finish helps the ball read the heads without digging in too early. This really helps the ball retain a smooth shape and a consistent reaction downlane without being jumpy at all. I’ve talked to several people that didn’t care for the original Absolute, but really love the Absolute Power. My Specs - Speed - 16 mph, Rev Rate - 315. PAP 5 1/8 x 7/8 Up.

    Storm Absolute Power Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

    Posted by PJ Haggerty on Mar 19th 2024

    The Absolute Power by Storm is the latest addition to the Premier line and, in my opinion, is a home run. The engine is the Sentinel Core and it’s wrapped with the R2S Deep Solid coverstock. I really liked the original Absolute and had a ton of success with it, so I was very excited to see a solid version be created. I think the comparison between the two is pretty simple. The Power provides players with a solid coverstock compared to the original Absolute, so this one reads the lane earlier, but it continues to change direction nicely like the original. I’ve drilled one so far and love it. It’s mapped out as 5 ¾ x 4 ¾ x 3. This puts the pin above my middle finger and the mass bias just to the right of my thumb. I’ve been able to use the Power on the fresh while keeping my angles tight as well as when lanes transition and steeper angles are needed. I’ve noticed a ton of versatility and it’s been very usable on several different patterns. From a surface standpoint, I’ve left it out of the box. Naturally, oil will shine equipment and that’s happened here, but I haven’t needed to adjust it at all. This is a ball I could see drilling a few of because of how versatile it can be. If you need a ball that has proven to be successful on multiple types of patterns and on multiple surfaces, I think you should consider drilling the Absolute Power from Storm! #StormNation

    Absolute Power

    Posted by Todd Benner on Mar 19th 2024

    The Storm Absolute Power features the same Sentinel core found in the original Absolute, however the Power features the R2S Deep solid reactive coverstock. At 15 pounds the A.P. has a low rg of 2.48, with a differential of .050 and an intermediate diff of .021. I drilled mine the same as drill most of my equipment at 5x4x2. I’m not sure why, maybe it is the 4000-grit finish, but I expected this ball to hook sooner and much more than it does. This, however, is not a bad finding. The A.P. is surprisingly clean through the front part of the lane, picks up traction in the midlane and has a slower response to friction creating an even, arcing backend motion. When compared to the Absolute, the Power is about three to five feet sooner and about three boards more of overall hook. This ball reacts more like a symmetrical benchmark ball than a bigger asymmetrical ball. This ball will be best for medium conditions and for bowlers with higher ball speeds that want to play closer to the dry and for bowlers with slower ball speeds that are looking for a ball that won’t react quite as strong as some of the other solid asymmetrical balls.

    "Absolutely" Worth it!

    Posted by Brad Paynter on Mar 15th 2024

    I was a huge fan of the original absolute, so when I saw this ball coming out, I was extremely excited. Well, after throwing it, the excitement is still there. While this ball is an asymmetrical, it had taken the spot of my benchmark ball. So what does that mean for you? It means "Absolute" versatility. The ball is also noted as power, which fits. The coverstock isn't as early as what one may thing, but still provides a smooth track to the pocket. Give this ball a shot!

    Storm - Absolute Power

    Posted by Kristijonas S. on Mar 1st 2024

    The Storm Absolute Power is the newest addition to the Premier Line. This bowling ball features the Sentinel core and the well-known R2S Deep Solid coverstock. I really like what I see out of this Absolute Power. I do think it creates a nice, benchmark-like ball reaction. Since this core can potentially flare quite a bit, I decided to drill my Absolute Power with a pin-down layout: 55 x 5 x 75. I see this bowling ball to be versatile as the core seems to create an earlier and smoother roll, while the coverstock isn’t overly aggressive and stays on-line quite easy. This core and coverstock combination seem to allow for this bowling ball to respond to any release adjustments very nicely. I managed to stay with this ball through a couple of pattern transitions. This Absolute Power has worked in multiple scenarios for me so far. I do think this ball will work best on fresh, medium patterns. It takes surface adjustments well, which makes this ball very useful on different types of lane surfaces. I also think this Absolute Power could be a very good first ball out of the bag on a lot of house patterns.

    Absolute Power

    Posted by Casey Mattingly on Feb 29th 2024

    I have always been a fan of the Asymmetrical balls with big cores but weak covers. This one falls right into that spot! The clean, solid cover of R2S deep is pretty clean out of the box (4000) and makes a defined movement down lane. I actually thought that with my standard, 5x4x2 layout, the cover was a little too clean. I hit mine, lightly, with a 1000 pad and WHOA…Ball became a Monster! This ball also lets me continue to chase it left as the lanes break down. I am pretty conscious with my Asyms. on when I need to get out of them. We have wood lanes at my center and I have used this ball for all 3 games, multiple times, on 5 man leagues and 3 man leagues as well! This ball packs a serious punch and is quite versatile!

    Absolute Power

    Posted by William Tefft on Feb 26th 2024

    Absolute Power Coverstock: R2S DEEP Solid Reactive Finish: 4000 Grit Abralon Core: Sentinel Fragrance: Blueberry, Orange, Cake, Review: I was a big fan of the original Absolute and when I saw the solid version was coming on I knew I would have to get it in my bag. Comparing this ball to some of my other big Asymmetric solids I found this ball to be significantly weaker than my Reality. But that is what I was looking for. This ball is very smooth rolling and allows me to stay with it longer than my reality. I find this ball similar to a benchmark ball for me. Allowing me to gage the lanes and put myself in the best position. This ball is going to be great first out of the bag during tournament play and a solid league ball for those lower rev players.
