Additional product information:

Not every bowler is made the same and not every bowling ball is made the same. As you discover your personal bowling DNA Profile, you can expect this new bowling ball to give you a great read of the midlane. If you drilled the original DNA, try the same layout on your DNA Coil and expect the same early-revving action, but with a longer, more angular ball motion we all look for as the lanes start to break down.

    DNA Coil by RGR

    Posted by Roto Grip Rick on Apr 7th 2024

    Storm DNA Coil Ball Specs: EXO Pearl coverstock with the Supercoil core, surface finished with React a Gloss Layout: 5 X 5 X 3 VLS 2.0 Bowler specs: 15.5 mph and rev rate in the 380’s and my is PAP is 3 ¼ and at zero up/down and tested on Pro-Lane at ABC North Lanes in Harrisburg, Pa., and Colony Park Lanes and Games in York, Pa. During practice on the fresh house patterns at both locations were a little tricky on the reaction, as I saw if I got the ball between 15 and 17 boards at the arrows, there was a very defined reaction in the midlane and back end. If I projected the ball up 20-22 boards, it labored a good bit more. The sweet spot on the fresh and slightly used was to play in around the 3rd arrow and get the DNA COIL to roll right through the 2 down lane marker boards on Pro-Lane surface. A little flatter hand and moving left of center for me created that same look as long as I hit that sweet spot right between those two targets. The COIL’s reaction on HPL was of course a little sooner and stronger, both centers I bowl in have the all new Kegel Atlas machines, but one used terrain and the other uses Infinity – which is the center with HPL lane surfaces, which I feel the Infinity on that surface does not hold up well and continue through the day had to keep making more adjustments with the COIL and at the other center, the pattern held up better on the Pro-Lane, but the reaction was not a strong as I would like in a league play setting. The Coil will become a part of my league bag for Colony Park Lanes for the simple reason it has a better overall reaction on the fresh there and after a game or two, I can migrate to the Roto Grip Attention Star to finish out the match if need be. A good strong 2 ball step up from the Summit Peak and a full step for me from the Virtual Energy Blackout, AKA: VEBO.

    The DNA Coil is superb!

RG • 2.47 Differential •.053 PSA •.023 Layout • 4 1/8 x 4 1/8 x 2 3/8 Tester PAP • 5” R, 5/8” D Tester Axis Tilt • 11° Tester Rev Rate • 300 Test Pattern • 42’ THS (Typical House Shot) • Modified, Kegel Stone Street Storm has brought a welcomed new dynamic to the DNA line with their release of the DNA Coil. With the addition of the EXO Pearl Reactive coverstock combined with the fast-spinning Supercoil Core, the DNA Coil is an outstanding success in the Storm line! So, let’s take a closer look at Storm’s new masterpiece – the DNA Coil! From my first roll with the DNA Coil, I enjoyed how the Supercoil Core transfers energy throughout the lane. For a big asymmetric core, the Supercoil Core has a fast-revving motion in the mid-lane like a symmetric core, but rather than burn up its energy at the back end, which is what straighter players like me tend to see. The Supercoil Core builds momentum as it makes its path through the midline. And it retains a significant amount of inertia that explodes when it finds the roll phase. And when the DNA Coil starts rolling, get out of its way! The Supercoil Core rolls with a robust amount of energy that destroys the pin deck! And with its strong asymmetric design, the Supercoil Core has a steam-rolling continuation that destroys anything in its path! So, straighter and low–rev players like me will love the motion the Supercoil Core brings. What makes the DNA Coil come alive is the EXO Pearl Reactive coverstock. I found the EXO Pearl to be crisp, clean, and smooth throughout the night with the Reacta Gloss finish. However, when I sanded my DNA Coil with 2000-grit Abralon and followed it with Storm’s Rough Edge polish, there was no turning back! I loved how the EXO Pearl glides through the front part of the lane but griped smoothly in the mid-lane, creating a crisp and distinct turn-off the pattern you could trust! And whether it was early on a fresh THS or later on broken down, spotty conditions, I could count on the EXO Pearl coverstock to keep my DNA Coil rolling smoothly on the shim line without being jumpy or snapping off the back end. So, if you are a straighter player like me, the EXO Pearl reactive coverstock will fit nicely into your game! In conclusion, the Storm DNA Coil brings a new dynamic look to Storm’s Premier line. I found the Supercoil Core and the EXO Pearl Reactive coverstock a winning combination that makes the DNA Coil an excellent ball choice for any straighter, high-speed, low-rev player like me. The DNA Coil rolls hard, cuts decisively, and destroys the pins. So, stop into your local Storm VIP Pro Shop and have your DNA Coil ready for those final weeks of fall league competitions and raise your final standings! Because the DNA Coil will bring results!

    Storm - DNA Coil

    Posted by Kristijonas S. on Apr 4th 2024

    The Storm DNA Coil features a low RG Supercoil Core that that helps the ball read he midlane better and the EXO Pearl coverstock that provides a little more length and compliments the early revving core. I believe this DNA Coil has a lot to offer and it shouldn’t be overlooked. With a lot differential and intermediate differential available in the core of the DNA Coil, I drilled mine with a standard pin-down layout: 55 x 5 x 75. Because of the cleaner nature of this coverstock and the polish on top of it, at first, I felt like the bowling ball was a little to clean for what was it intended to be. I saw a little bit of over/under reaction on multiple patterns. I then put just a little bit of surface on my DNA Coil and the reaction looked much better to my eyes. After the surface change, the bowling ball created an early rolling an predictable ball motion that, in my mind, think can be very useful on multiple patterns and lane surfaces. You can definitely notice the early revving, low RG of this core. In my opinion, this DNA Coil is a sleeper bowling ball. Bowlers, that are looking for an earlier rolling, shiny asymmetrical bowling ball, will definitely find the DNA Coil to be very good. It seems that this coverstock is very versatile and can be used on newer and older lane surfaces. Even though this core has very low RG, I was surprised how continuous the bowling ball was as I was able to use this DNA Coil while playing multiple angles on the lane. I will add that I believe this DNA Coil will work very well on medium oil patterns that require steeper launch angles, especially on higher friction lane surfaces. This ball has quickly become one of my favorites. Watch myself and Verity Crawley throw the DNA Coil on our YouTube channel:

    DNA Coil

    Posted by Austin Smith on Apr 2nd 2024

    This ball delivers on the areas the original missed. I was limited where I could use the original DNA solid. But this ball has busted the lanes and pins wide open. The reliable mid lane shape and extremely strong and continuous back end make this ball a winner. I'm a speed dominate bowler who can struggle to have success with pearl balls at times. But this ball is an absolute must in the bag. Its a Ball 1 piece in the arsenal and will burn up the lanes fast. But if you tend to have slow starts like I do this is the gene you're missing in your game.

    Rolls Great Smells Great

    One thing I loved about the original DNA was that you could move left with it and still have it recover. Now I can just go straight to the coil and it just hits like a truck. This line is slowly becoming a top 3 favorite.

    This has become a favorite of mine during leagues in centers where they tend to hook early. I have been using this on the fresh on those earlier hooking surfaces and the ball has been phenomenal. We see cleanliness yet tons of mid lane read and continuation. For comparison purposes, I see this as a cleaner option versus an Exotic Gem and a great step down off the stronger asymmetrical and or symmetrical solids. This ball is designed for medium to heavier oil conditions and can be used either directly on the fresh and/or early lane transition

    Storm DNA Coil

    Posted by Rich Kollmeyer on Mar 30th 2024

    Layout: 4 1/2 x 4 x 2 VLS I think the original DNA was one of the most underrated balls from 2023. The original wasn’t a huge hooking ball, but people seemed to think that the ball was a huge hook monster. It was a very smooth, very continuous ball that could be used on a variety of conditions. The DNA Coil builds on that reaction by changing the coverstock from EXO Solid on the original to EXO Pearl on the DNA Coil. The EXO Pearl changed the shape of the ball completely! The original was extremely smooth and the DNA Coil is a very strong hockey stick shape. I found the box surface to have a little bit too much over/under on the well used league shot. I took a used 2000 pad and lightly scratched up the surface by hand. That light scratching really smoothed out the reaction without losing the angular motion on the back end. My Specs - Speed - 16 mph, Rev Rate - 315. PAP 5 1/8 x 7/8 Up.

    DNA Coil!

    Posted by Sam Cooper on Mar 26th 2024

    Sam Cooper Roto Grip Amateur Staff. The DNA Coil features the EXO pearl coverstock along with the Supercoil Core. Layout is 45x5 1/4”x75(pin down). I prefer to have a pin down pearl in the bag for the surfaces around Pittsburgh. After the first DNA rolled so well for me I went with a similar layout just a weaker pin. With the coil you see similar tendencies of the OG with just a cleaner and quicker response to the friction. This ball is great for when the fronts are burnt up a bit but need control on the back end. The Supercoil core has enough strength and the EXO pearl cover has enough traction to hook in oil. Where I have used the DNA Coil is after the Optimum Idol when that tends to be too early or when it won’t go through the pins correctly. I bowl in a house shot burn league on a high friction surface. The Coil has no trouble getting through the body of the house shot and giving me controllable pop on the back end. Then when the Coil is too smooth(think this is due to the layout) I can go to the Attention Star or VEBO to get more on the back end and better pin carry. The Coil will be a good option in the bag for anyone that wants a strong pearl or the environment you in has friction in the fronts. Don’t sleep on the Coil if striking is in your DNA!

    DNA Coil review

    Posted by Adam Chase on Mar 24th 2024

    Layout: 4 1/2 x 6 x 0 Surface: 2000 abralon The DNA Coil brings back the supercoil core paired with the new exo pearl coverstock. The supercoil core is one of the strongest ones in the current storm lineup. Originally found on the DNA solid, the core is designed for heavy oil and produces strong and smoother motion. The new Coil gives a cleaner and higher response for that same heavy oil. I drilled this one 4 1/2 x 6 x 0 to put the pin on my axis line to start up on the lane very quickly while giving that more angular motion I have needed. This layout was used specifically for tournament conditions that have a lot more volume then the typical house shot. The Coil accomplishes just what I am looking for. It reads the front and midlane pretty strong while giving a nice angular backend. The strong core and coverstock combination handles the heavy oil really well and is a great step down from a slower response ball such as the original DNA or summit. I brought the surface down to 2000 grit because the factory reacta gloss was too long in length at first. The surface allows the ball to read the midlane stronger and continue better. On the typical house shot the early hooked forces me into the oil very quickly but still continues well. If your house shot has a lot of volume or is longer in length then the Coil with a similar drilling would do well. A more typical drilling where the pin is further from the axis line would be great as either a fresh ball or first transition ball. This ball is earlier and smoother than the virtual Energy Blackout.

    DNA Coil

    Posted by William Tefft on Mar 24th 2024

    Ball Specs: DNA Coild Coverstock: EXO Pearl Coverstock Fragrance: Orange Pineapple Slush Core: Asymmetric Finish: Reacta Gloss Review: Talk about a ball that stands out. The new DNA Coil is another addition to the DNA line. This being a pearl coverstock pairs perfectly with the original DNA. The DNA Coil is great for when you start to see your DNA burning up and losing energy. Unlike many pearls, the DNA Coil isn’t just a one-trick pony. You won’t just see a big backend motion like every other pearl bowling ball out there. The thing that I really like about this ball is the versatility. This ball can play a variety of angles and lines and still see a great reaction all over the lane. I find myself using this ball a lot during the start of league or when the lanes begin to change at tournaments. With the bigger core it allows me to use this ball early in league. The coverstock is also very good when changing the finish. I have thrown the ball at box finish and have taken it to 2000 sanded and have had success adding additional versatility to this great ball. If you loved your original DNA you are going to really enjoy throwing this ball, make sure you pick yours up today! Will Tefft Storm Staff Member #Stromnation
