    Dark Code

    Posted by Trent Knoop on Jul 22nd 2021

    Drilling: Pin above bridge with mass bias kicked 2 inches right. Dual angle: 60 X 4 X 40 I've enjoyed all of the 'Code' bowling balls that Storm has came out with, and the Dark Code is going to be another one that I'm going to really enjoy throwing. The Dark Code features a new coverstock called the Rex and it also has the RAD4 core inside of it. The Dark Code is an asymmetrical bowling ball, and I will say I typically don't like throwing shiny or pearl asymmetrical bowling balls - they're too early for me and lose too much energy down lane. The Dark Code has to be one of the cleanest asymmetrical balls I've ever thrown - it stores so much energy for myself, and it tears off the breakpoint. It's not a ball I would use on fresh on a ton of oil, but it will be a great transition ball for me to go to when one of my dull balls become too early.

    Great addition to the Code Line!

    Posted by Dainon Ward on Jul 20th 2021

    After watching the ball review videos for this product this felt like a must have. After a few practice games to really understand the motion, this ball is looking for friction to make a solid turn in the backend. This ball is at its best when the lanes are a little broken down and you need something to round the corner and just keep going. The Dark Code is a must have as a step down from big tanks like the Proton Physics or UFO. It gives you very good length with a monstrous backend which sends pins flying. Highly recommended!

    One of Storms best releases a UC2 on steroids

    Posted by Rich Gandia on Jul 17th 2021

    Has exceptional length on THS with strong and continuous backend. Reads mids very well no over/under. On dryer condition had to move at least 5 with feet that’s where I see this ball really shine it comes back hard.

    Dark Code

    Posted by Dan Marriott on Jul 15th 2021

    Dark Code features the RAD4 core wrapped in a brand new coverstock in ReX. This cover is a blend of R2S and NeX and man it does not disappoint! Over the past month I have had lots of success with this ball. I had 300 with Dark Code within the first week of throwing it. I also took it to a one ball tournament and put 3,000 on it and it still rolled amazing. This ball can definitely handle surface and shine and will roll great no matter what the lane condition is giving you. I definitely recommend picking yours today at your local Storm VIP Pro Shop you won't want to miss this one!

    Dark Code

    Posted by Michael Slatky on Jul 12th 2021

    Storm: Dark Code Coverstock: ReX Pearl Reactive Finish: 1500 Grit Polished Core: RAD4 RG: 2.50 Differential: 0.058 Int Diff: 0.020 Layout: 65 x 5 1/2 x 45 Tester: PAP 5 1/2 R, 1 1/2 D Review: The Dark Code features a new coverstock ReX formulation that is the combination of two previous covers, the RS2 and NeX. This new blend has bowlers enthusiastic about the skid/flip reactions that can be created. For your medium to medium/dry conditions the Dark Code is the answer. As noted above, the Dark Code will shine in medium to medium/dry conditions. To bring to light a similar ball for 900 fans, the Black Ops quickly comes to mind. If you enjoyed the Black Ops, you will want to consider adding a Dark Code to your line up. This one is truly for league night where you want to open up the lanes and create big angles. This ball is ready to go with the OOB finish and into your bag. For those that like to scratch the ball up a bit a 3K pad has been doing the trick for a lot of bowlers. I was most impressed with the hitting power of this ball on a 41' THS pattern. You'll be hearing a lot about the Dark Code taking out pins this year. Grab the new Dark Code today! Also, be sure to check out my bowler tip for thumbless bowlers in this video in lieu of the 900 Global Black Ops going down the lane.

    Storm Dark Code

    Posted by Zach Shoff on Jul 10th 2021

    Zach Shoff 900 Global Staff Member BowlerMAXX Pro Shop Staff Member Right-Handed Rev Rate: 350 Speed: 15mph PAP: 4 Over & 3/4 Up As soon as I could get my hands on this ball I did. I did not just buy one either. Since I had both the Code Black & Code Red and loved those balls, I knew this was one ball I must get. Hoping I would get the same great reaction that I did before with the codes I could not wait to drill a Dark Code up. I laid my dark code out with a 55x4x30 and I was not disappointed. The first shot I rolled it on a THS – 41ft I saw the ball get through the mids extremely well and when it hit friction the ball did not just shoot left, but it continued through the pins with a ton of energy. I threw the ball 5 more games and could not believe how it has the same overall motion as the older codes but even better off the edges and cleaner. For sure one of the first balls out of my bag.

    Storm Dark Code

    Posted by Stanley Waite on Jun 28th 2021

    Dark Code - Ball Specs Cover Stock: Rex Pearl Coverstock Finish: 1500 Grit Polished Core: RAD4 Core Layout: 55 x 5 x 40 RG: 2.50 Differential: 0.058 Intermediate Diff: .020 Review Storm has added a new addition to the Code series the DARK CODE. This is my first Code series ball. My first impression was this ball reminds me of the Black Ops, which is my favorite 900 Global ball. The Dark Code features the new REX cover stock, which is a combination of the R2S and NeX cover stocks with the RAD4 core. The Dark Code is clean through the mid lane with a very strong backend reaction and goes through the pins extremely well. For me, the Dark Code is a little stronger than the Roto Grip UC2, but not as strong as the Parallax Effect. This ball will be great on medium oil patterns. This is a great ball for all levels of bowlers. Order one from your local pro shop today! My ball review videos are posted on YouTube channel Stanley Waite.

    Code Black "I am your Father"!

    Posted by Keith Cordy on Jun 27th 2021

    The Big Daddy of the Code Series is the "Dark Code". Wrap in the REX (NEX/R2S) cover gives this orb a more pronounced movement at the breakpoint than the Code Black. Similar length with more overall hook potential and continuation. For me the ball excelled on the upper medium/heavy THS as I was able to play the track area to start and migrate left to open up my angles as it stored energy better the more I moved in towards 4th arrow. Big, rolly weight block with matching cover producing phenomenal carry percentage and entry angles. Great addition or replacement to fit between your heavy oiler and benchmark symmetrical.
