Additional product information:

 For a ball to be emblazoned with Jason Belmonte’s insignia, you know it must be special. After all, his 13 majors and multiple PBA Player of the Year accolades is no small feat. This man knows what he’s talking about, so we’ve enlisted his help in designing some of the highest performing balls on the market, balls which reflect his career. 

Now it’s time to set another TREND with the Trend 2.

“Of all the Signature™ line balls Storm and I have created, Trend 2 has us the most excited. With a stronger cover and a redesign of the weight block, we have created an absolute monster for any style of player,” said Jason. “Trend 2 will give you the ability to move deeper on the lane without losing entry angle into the pocket. If you are in need of throwing that big couple games, Trend 2 is going to have your back.”

The Piston Core has adapted to the ever-changing environment we all endure. We’ve lightened the density of the weight block to create a higher RG with lower differential. Enter: The Piston LD Core. This provides the player with more continuation off the end of the pattern with the core dynamics concentrated in this range. Differentials in this class allow the core to stay in constant motion without “locking up” or going forward too quickly.

    Trend 2

    Posted by Anthony Wiegand on Jan 16th 2022

    The new collaboration between Belmonte and storm has to be the best to date so far. This new hybrid cover in the piston core complements each other so well in the Trend 2. This ball is not just for high rev rate or 2 handed players. This ball is versatile for any style of bowling. Don't miss out on Jason Belmonte new Signature ball. Get to your local pro shop and put your favorite layout on this ball, and you'll be off to the races.

    Trend 2

    Posted by Zachary Woelfel on Jan 11th 2022

    The latest and greatest Storm and Belmonte collaboration is the best one yet! Trend 2 features the Piston Core in which Storm lightened the density of the weight block to create a higher RG with a lower differential. This combination gives more continuation off the end of the pattern with the core dynamics concentrated in this range. This ball is an absolute beast, I have thrown this ball in every single tournament I have bowled in the past few months, I cannot seem to take it out of my hands. This ball will be great for bowlers of all styles and abilities, go out and get yours today!

    Trend 2

    Posted by Chris Freeland on Dec 30th 2021

    Storm Trend 2 Cover: NRG Hybrid Core: Piston LD Layout: 5 x 3 x 2.5 I decided to compare the newest Belmo ball to the Zen because many reviews are talking about it in the same breath as the Zen. I get that. It’s shiny, yet still a bit early, and it’s pretty strong. I think it’s pretty obvious in the video I get a bit more easy length and pop put of the Zen. The Trend 2 seems to want to dig a bit more even with the super shiny box finish on its NRG Hybrid cover (also on a favorite of mine - Physix). My Trend 2 really sees the back part of the lane and kind of locks up and rolls through the pins. This was alleviated mostly by really getting left and opening up the angles (maybe even more than normal which speaks to the overall strength of this ball). Although I like filming box surface first for these comparisons because 9/10 bowlers will probably leave it box, I now have the surface at about 2000. For me, the Trend 2 is more useful and more controllable with the surface. The surface also serves to provide more separation compared to other similar balls in our line.

    D's Review

    Storm Trend 2 Rev Rave 425 Pap 5 3/4 over ¼ up Axis Tilt >5 degrees Axis Rotation 45 degrees Storm Pro Shop Staff Before drilling the Trend 2 I drilled the original Trend, not for any reason I just wanted to see what a 4 ½ x 5 x 4 layout would roll like on a symmetrical ball. That layout is very situational for me and I can’t use it as much as I thought. Now, drilling the Trend 2 I went (5 x 3 ½ x 2 ½) The ball is very clean and still responds down lane. I love the before drilling core numbers and the strong cover. This combination is perfect for bowlers who like shiny covered bowling balls that still slow down at the right spot. I will keep the surface OOB and use it when the lanes have early friction. I see myself using the Trend 2 more for tournaments due to its strong cover and semi strong core. Today’s PBA tournament conditions use a lot more oil so the Trend 2 will be a ball I use later in the day when the lanes start developing the early hook. Looking at core numbers it is very similar to the Roto Grip Wrecker, so if that was something you liked in 2015 then you’ll have a great time with this new ball.

    Trend 2

    Posted by Kassy Shumate on Dec 28th 2021

    The Trend 2 is the newest “Belmo Ball” in Storm Bowling’s line up. There is always a handful of hype behind the Belmo balls and they always seem to create a ton of controversy in the bowling community as to whether or not they are actually good or just sell because of the name printed on them. I personally LOVED the ProMotion more than any of them and also really enjoy the OG Trend. The Trend 2 is proving to be a great compliment to its predecessor the OG Trend. It covers a surprising amount of boards for me which is exactly what I needed in my bag right now. When everyone is standing right and burning up the outside the Trend 2 allows me to move inside of them without losing any traction. As Luke Rosdahl mentions in his YouTube review “it isn’t really a step down or up from the OG Trend, it is more of a step sideways” this is why they complement each other so well, especially on modified house shots or sport shots. The OG Trend has gotten quite a bit of play time on sport shots.

    Storm Trend 2 Ball Review

    Posted by BRIAN HIRSCH on Dec 27th 2021

    Hey everyone, I’m back with another ball review, and this time it’s for the Storm Trend 2 and in 15 pounds this ball is wrapped in the NRG Hybrid Coverstock and comes 1500-grit polished with an RG of 2.54 and a Diff of .041. Layout for this ball is 4 X 4 X 2 This ball is everything I thought a ball with Jason Belmonte’s name on it would do. Go down lane and turn left! For the players like me that are rev challenged this ball will not disappoint. When the OG Trend came out and I threw it I was shocked that I can cerate that much angle and this Trend 2 does the same. I found the Trend 2 to be a touch stronger and made me move left into a zone I done get to much on fresh. This ball checks off all the marks from performance to smell this ball will fit in your league and tournament bags.

    TREND 2

    Posted by bowler3 on Dec 26th 2021

    The Trend has been a staple in my league bag since the release date. It has always been my go to ball when i need to play around second or third arrow. Once the lanes start to open up I usually have to change balls and move left. The Trend 2 gets to about the same breakpoint for me but is very very responsive off the spot. I am about 5/6 boards left with the Trend 2. This will allow me to move left and open up my angles without losing the back end. I feel like the Trend series is great for many different styles. With being a symmetric weight block it allows for great roll for many different speeds , rev rates and ages. This is going to be a must have for any bowler looking to improve there scores.

    Storm Trend 2 Ball Review

    Posted by Pete Dohan on Dec 16th 2021

    I have thrown the last three Belmo signature releases: the ProMotion, Trend, and latest the Trend 2. At first glance the piston core with a stronger cover was something I wanted to try since I like medium strength pieces. I just couldn’t match up with how strong the Spec cover was with the lower volume house shots in the area. Next up into the arsenal was the Trend. I drilled it with a higher pin placement to help with the weaker pearl cover. This was very conditional for me. The cover was too weak for me on the area house shots and ended up not using it very much. After seeing the videos for the Trend 2 I was excited about the adjustment to the core but most of all about the NRG Hybrid cover. My favorite ball, the Physix, had the same cover. This ball does not disappoint. For me it rolls like a stronger version of the original HY-Road. When my Zen becomes too early and lazy down lane I can move right into the Trend 2 and play in the same area for a longer period of time. With the stronger cover and even with the polish I have not had to adjust the cover. Usually shiny pieces have a tendency to have some over/under characteristics on some house shots but not with this core/cover combination. If you'd like to see how this ball rolls for me just click the link to my video ball review on my YouTube channel. Pete Dohan Storm Bowling Amateur Staff #StormNation

    Another great Belmo product

    Posted by Pierre Luc Larouche on Dec 10th 2021

    I REAALLLYYY love this ball since I throw it. I use it with the hybrid OOB surface. On house or sport patterns this ball impress me so much because in all cases, this ball reacts so well off the end of the pattern even if is really agressive at the middle of the lane. It's one of the ball that I try on first to give me a good imprression of the lane pattern. I can use as much on all kind of pattern, just front of me when there are much oil or cross the lane when oil condition are more dry. The Trend 2 give me a lot of possibilities !!! In my bag for all tournament this next year for sure !! #stormnation
