Storm Modern Marvel Bowling Ball

(1 review) Write a Review

One of the most popular balls of this year’s World Series of Bowling, the Marvel™ Pearl was preferred by Ryan Shafer, Dom Barrett, and many more looking to open up the backends. The new Modern Marvel will provide more midlane traction as it features a textured R2X™ hybrid reactive cover. Prepped with 4000-grit Abralon® to match the “modern” environment, the Modern Marvel provides an optimum amount of traction throughout the entire lane; just enough glide through the heads without over-skidding and enough backend to verify you are indeed throwing a Storm bowling ball. The Centripetal™ core’s symmetrical shape provides countless drilling options. So feel free to drop your favorite layout in the Modern Marvel as this shape has quickly become one of the favorites of players around the globe. And if you are looking for something a touch different than what you already have, be sure check out the Storm symmetrical drilling guide as you’re sure to find exactly what you need. With this outstanding combination of coverstock and core, you’ll quickly see why this new release from Storm is sure to become a true modern marvel. Storm - We are “The Bowler’s Company™.”

    <b>My layout:</b> 55 degrees x 4/12 inches x 65 degrees. <b>My PAP:</b> 5 7/8 inches over and 3/8 inches up. Overall I really like Modern Marvel, it gives me a different look than any other ball in my bag. This ball is especially good when keeping the ball in play is important. I don't see this as a ball that will help open up the backend or create pocket area, at least not with the layout I chose. It's great when going up the boards and when you need a predictable ball motion. I have used the Modern Marvel on the 2012 Nationals patter on a Brunswick surface, a 43' House pattern on AMF surface and a modified house pattern on AMF surface. All lane patterns were fresh. The characteristic of the ball that struck me the strongest was the lack of overreaction or at least less than I would see with high end asymmetric balls making this a ball that is very easy to trust. I can see the Modern Marvel being a go to ball early on in team event at the Nationals this year. Scott Widmer Storm Amateur Staff Member
