Additional product information:

There’s new technology stacked inside and out in the state-of-the-art Summit. Starting with the cover, TX-23 Hybrid is a modernized variation of the beloved TX-16™ that’s soared the Phaze™ II to record heights. Equipped with all the midlane read you can handle, this improved formula gives enhanced oil absorption for even better grip on those slick conditions. We’ve taken the Centripetal HD weight block and paired it with our new A.I. (Amplified Inertia) outer core.  This drives the RG down and differential up, everything you need to ensure this ball spins up fast and a lot. Officially, this is Storm’s strongest symmetric ball to date. Once you get one in your hands it’ll be tough to get it out

    The Summit

    Posted by Keith Cordy on Sep 11th 2023

    LANE CONDITION: Length: 42 Type: THS COMMENTS Announcing Storm’s strongest symmetric ball to date. Featuring the Centripetal HD weight block is surrounded by the ALL-NEW A.I. (Amplified Inertia) outer core which lowers the RG down and raises the Diff up ensuring maximum flare potential. Paired with the TX-23 Hybrid Cover, a cover derived from the TR16 solid on the PhazeII it is a significantly stronger dig in the oil on heavier THS or longer sport. My layout is: 5 1/4 x 5 3/8 x 1 3/8 Revrate: 325 AT: 16 The Summit for me was very slow. It looks like my Gem rolling down the lanes, only its symmetrical. Depending on what the lane is giving me, I was able to start a session playing the track area. Carry was above average along this line but as the lanes transitioned, my moves left to find the right amount of head oil allowed me to achieve optimum entry angle. I did want to keep my speed up as slower deliveries quickly read the friction. The Summit can hold its own against any big asym depending on the need. If you have issues matching up with big asymmetrical balls, then this ball should be in your arsenal. For the one ball, one league THB is a must. My Summit fits between my 900G Reality and RG TNT. Same shapes with different rolls. I say use the Summit when you want a ball stronger than the TNT and slower response than your big asymmetrical.

    Storm Summit ball review

    Posted by Mike Craig on Aug 31st 2023

    I drilled my SUMMIT up with a 4 x 4 x 4 pin under layout. I use this layout on pin unders to try to get a smooth transition. I have left it box finish which is 2000 abralon. Initial thoughts were strong but smooth. The SUMMIT was seeing the friction very early but not hopping off it like my other stronger pin up balls like the DNA and GEM were. The SUMMIT is a nice add on for when your big core/big traction balls are seeing the friction early and starting to stop or slow down too much. The SUMMIT also gives the appearance of a nice ball to have another as a compliment. I am going to add a pin up layout in the SUMMIT to go with the one I have already.

    The new Storm Summit features the Centripetal HD weight block and is surrounded by an all new A.I. (amplified inertia) outer core. All of that is wrapped in a new TX-23 Hybrid cover stock. The Summit is the strongest symmetrical ball Storm has ever released. Drilled at 5x4x2 (pin above bridge), this ball does not disappoint. I was a big fan of the Axiom, which is similar in RG and differential, but the Summit surpasses the performance of the Axiom. The Summit is cleaner through the front part of the lane and provides a much stronger backend motion than the Axiom. For a low RG ball, this ball just keeps on coming when you must open your angles. The one thing the Summit needs is oil because it flat out hooks!! This ball will smooth out the wet/dry house patterns and will also provide enough traction on the heavier sport patterns

    Storm Summit

    Posted by BRIAN HIRSCH on Aug 24th 2023

    Hey everyone, I'm back with another ball review, and this time it's for the Storm Summit! In 15 pounds this ball is wrapped in the TX-23 Hybrid Coverstock and comes with 3000 abaron and an RG of 2.46, Diff of .056. So what do we have here…. This ball is the strongest symmetric to date and has been compared to a stronger Phaze 2 and what a compliment that is. Now that I have thrown this ball I have found it very strong and as I have said in other reviews being more speed than rev dominant I have found this ball to look best going straight down the track. I have thrown it against the 900 Global Zen Gold Label and had to move right as the Zen GL is a shiny pearl with React Gloss. I see this ball being great on the fresh and after some lane shine can be the ball you can bowl all three games of league with.

    Summit Review

    Posted by Brian Locke on Aug 24th 2023

    The Storm Summit has been a staple in my bag since I had it drilled! It fits right above my Phaze 2 in my bag, which it compliments extremely well! If my Phaze 2 is a little too clean in the mid-lane, my Summit picks up in the mid-lane a little earlier (thanks to its super lower RG with the AI tech.) With the updated cover from the Phaze 2, TX-23 Hybrid, the Summit is still fairly clean through the fronts, and its more of what’s inside the ball that gets it to read earlier and smooth out! I imagine this one may be in my bag for quite a while! Coverstock: TX-23 Hybrid Core: Centripetal HD with AI tech (amplified Inertia) RG: 2.46 - Differential: .056 (15lbs) Layout: 5 x 5 x 4 2LS Pap: 4 7/8 Right, ¼ up Rev Rate: +-500 Speed 17-18mph Brian Locke - Storm Amateur Staff

    Storm Summit Review by Casey Murphy

    Posted by Casey Murphy on Aug 22nd 2023

    Orientation: Right Handed Rev Rate: 400 RPM Speed: 16-17 MPH PAP: 4 ½ over and ½ up Location: Enterprise Park Lanes, Springfield MO Pattern: High Volume THS VLS Layout: Layout 1: 5 x 4 x 2 ½ (pin above bridge) Layout 2: 4 ½ x 4 x 4 1/8 (pin below bridge) New Master line ball. New Core. New Cover. This the lowest RG I can ever remember and the highest diff in awhile too! This ball REVS UP and HOOOKKSSS. The nice thing is it’s the same reactive cover formula as the Phaze 2, one of the goat balls but this time the Summit cover is the TX-23 Hybrid. It’s definitely a little cleaner than our biggest covers meaning it can handle the volume and has NO problem hooking. The Summit features the Centripetal HD weight block with the AI outer core which helps create this very unique ball motion. The is the best addition the Master line we’ve seen in some time. I feel like I can use the Summit on typical house patterns as well and some of the heavier blended tougher patterns. The Summit HOOOKS tho, so you better have some volume! If you loved the Phaze 2 and want an earlier and smoother shape, go with the Summit!

    The Summit surprised me. Looking at the Low RG. And Extremely High Diff. before drilling, I can’t believe the ball still motions down lane. The .056 Diff in the Summit allows for huge angles through the front of the lane with a reassurance that the ball will make it back to the pocket and still carry. It reminds me of a continuous Asymmetric ball which I like. I used a layout to slightly lower the diff by having the pin in my ring finger (5 ½ x 4 x 3 ½). I knew by design this ball was going to have a lot of hook potential and I typically bowl better with balls that hook less, so I wanted to make sure this ball had a good amount of play when I’m bowling in local tournaments. Shinning the cover does help, but I recommend through it first before changing the cover.

    Storm Summit is now my benchmark ball!

    Posted by Melanee Gross on Aug 16th 2023

    I was super excited to get this ball with the new A.I. (Amplified Inertia) outer core, and wow was I not disappointed! This ball is now the first out of the bag, no matter what the conditions. The Summit is very clean and smooth through the heads. With the low RG and the higher differential, the ball picks up perfectly midlane and is strong and continuous through the back end. This ball will definitely work great for all bowlers of various styles. I dropped weight a while ago to 14lbs and have been worried about carry ever since. This is definitely no longer a concern. For me the ball moves and hits just as hard as the 15lb balls I see on the lanes.

    Strom Summit Ball Review

    Posted by Patrick Keiffer on Aug 15th 2023

    The Summit has a low RG value of 2.46 a medium differential of 0.056 making it the strongest symmetric ball to date from Storm. Starting on the inside, the Centripetal HD weight block is surrounded by the ALL-NEW A.I. (Amplified Inertia) outer core. This new combination drives the RG down and the differential up ensuring this ball spins up fast. Paired with the TX-23 Hybrid Cover, the Summit provides enhanced oil absorption for even better grip on those slick conditions. Which in turn gives you the bowler the ability to open up the lanes more I did a ball comparison to the 900 Global Zen Master, Storm Absolute and the 900 Global Reality Check at 42 ft house shot, 25 ml of oil. The layout chosen 15 x 5 5/16 x 25. In comparison to the 900 Global Zen Master, the Summit starts up quicker and is more aggressive off the spot verses the Zen Master that’s a pinch cleaner and more rounded off the spot. Through the shots you will see how the Summit and the Zen Master are very similar even going 5 and 3 left they both keep up with each other. It wasn’t until I went deep inside where the Summit out hooked the Zen Master. In comparison to the Storm Absolute, The Summit starts up quicker and overall hooks way more. The Absolute has a R2S Deep Hybrid cover with a similar RG of 2.48 verses a 2.46 of the Summit and a lower differential of 0.050 verses a 0.056 so in retrospect of numbers the Absolute should hook more but the TX-23 cover is a lot higher on the strength scale verses R2S an in turn hooks more. In comparison to the 900 Global Reality Check, the Summit also starts up quicker and stronger off the spot. The Reality Check is a much cleaner option even being an asymmetric ball with a more rounder shape verses the Summit with a more sharper shape that climbs the hill much stronger on the heavier conditions. As per the surface adjustments, the Summit at box surface is 3000 grit which will be strong a continuous and round off the spot At 2,000 Polish the ball will go a little longer and sharper off the spot In the bag, will be the Reality, Eternity, Summit, Dark Code, IQ Ruby

    Can you reach the Summit?

    Posted by andrew smith on Aug 15th 2023

    Storm Summit is one of Storms strongest symmetricals to date! Using the Centripetal HD weight block wrapped in the all new TX-23 hybrid cover and don’t forget this ball also has the new A.I. (Amplified Inertia) outer core. This ball has become one of my favorites in the bag this summer. It’s the perfect blend of heavy roll and down lane motion. I’ve used this ball on a variety of patterns but seems to really shine on the longer higher volume patterns. When my Reality starts to burn up or can’t get any further in without leaving corner pins, the summit stores more energy and I have no problem crossing boards with it. It also seems to handle carry down and cliff very well. I have total confidence knowing this ball will hook on anything! If you’re looking for something on the stronger side but don’t want something high performance, give this ball a try. Can you reach the Summit?
