Additional product information:


We’ve spent the last 30 years obsessing over it. Breaking rules and building balls with a conviction others would probably call crazy. But that’s how you do things when you’re young. When we have a problem that needs solving, everyone participates. We hold often-impromptu meetings, where wild ideas are born and deep-seated concepts come screaming to life.


Many look to Storm to cut through oil and create supreme entry angle, but not every situation requires maximum ball motion. In fact, shorter oil patterns and drier conditions can be as equally as challenging as a lane with oil backed up to the head pin.

Balls in the urethane classification can be sensitive to the weight blocks put inside them. The perfect position of the RG, the proper amount of differential, symmetric vs asymmetric – these all play a vital role in the motion in this type of ball. Dialing in the precise measure of each was no easy feat, but we were up to the challenge. Urethanes are meant to bring back the breakpoint to control shorter patterns. But when the RG is too low, the end result is simply too much of a good thing. The higher RG, medium differential Tour Block weight block keeps the Fast Pitch reading the lane exactly where its needed.

Controll XL is making its debut on the Fast Pitch, bringing the performance characteristics between the Pitch BlackTM and the Pitch PurpleTM. The Pitch Black reigns supreme as the hook/set type of reaction with the Pitch Purple being the cleaner and more angular option. The Fast Pitch blends the line between early read and entry angle making it the most versatile Pitch series ball to date.

    Storm Fast Pitch review by Trevor Roberts

    Posted by Trevor Roberts on Jan 20th 2021

    The Fast Pitch is the newest urethane ball from Storm. As you know the Pitch Black and Pitch Purple are already staples in most Storm bowler’s bags, so this Fast Pitch will add another motion in that line. When I reviewed the Fast Pitch on my YouTube channel, I of course had to compare it to those two other urethanes. The Fast pitch for me fit right in the middle of the two. The Pitch Black picks up in the front part of the lane, where as the Fast Pitch is a little cleaner and more responsive in the middle third of the lane. The Pitch Purple is the cleanest and most angular of the three, so I believe that this Fast Pitch is more similar to the Pitch Black.

    Fast Pitch

    Posted by Janet A Gulick on Nov 4th 2020

    Ball layout was 4 1/2" pin distance with 2" pin buffer. Bowling on the 2020 PBA Wolf 32 Feet pattern, as long as I kept the ball cleaned off before each delivery with my chamois, it performed wonderfully. Suggested by my ball driller to be "the ball", and it was the ball to purchase and use for that pattern.
