Storm DNA Bowling Ball

Technology is in our DNA!


We start from the innermost part, the weight block, and work our way out. In this case, it’s the inventive Supercoil weight block. The intent was to develop a super low RG shape with a greater undrilled intermediate differential. Traditionally, weight blocks with more of the mass placed around the equator drive the RG down and read the midlane better. The cutaway on the Y-axis helps to maintain dynamic integrity after drilling. When it’s time, the coverstock is poured. In just a few minutes as the liquid transitions to a solid, an extreme amount of heat (about 200 °F) needs to be released for this to happen.


We refer to this as “exotherm”. This stage in the process is crucial to the chemistry of the coverstock and by controlling the peak temperature, heat rate, and cooldown speed we can manipulate the chemical porosity deep within that helps with oil absorption and displacement. This creates caverns of porosity and cliffs so deep which give this state-of-the-art shell the kind of cutting-edge traction that’ll leave you in awe. Enter: EXO Reactive coverstock.

  • DNA creates a strong bond with the lane

    Posted by Oliver Lawson on May 26th 2023

    I drilled my DNA 4.75x4x4 2LS to match the layout on my Reality. The new SuperCoil core really does what it says. Even though the DNA is wrapped in an extremely strong Exo Solid coverstock, the core real helps this ball shape off the end of the pattern. Compared to my Reality, the DNA goes 2-3ft further downland before it gets into the hook phase, and it covers several more boards left to right than my Reality. I think this piece is going to be really good for lower rev players that need to cover boards on higher volume patterns and see more downline shape than the Reality provides. Personally this ball is not for me, but I can see this being a great option for lower power players, and a great piece on longer/higher volume patterns.

And with the winning combination of the new Supercoil Core and EXO Solid Reactive coverstock, the DNA brought some pin-crushing results. So, let's take a closer look at what makes the DNA a potent weapon to add to your arsenal. Storm has done a brilliant job in developing the new Supercoil Core. I like how the Supercoil Core reads the lane more methodically than other big asymmetric cores. It has a clean rhythmic motion that starts more in the mid-lane. And I liked how the Supercoil Core progressively builds momentum as it continues down the lane. And being a straighter player, I enjoyed the Supercoil Core's ability to turn that momentum into potent raw power. And that power translated to a destructive explosion at the pins and a relentless driving continuation through the deck. So, no doubt, straighter players like me will love the results from the Supercoil Core! Continuing the DNA's success is the EXO Solid Reactive Coverstock. From my first roll on a fresh THS, I loved the EXO Solid's biting traction from the moment the DNA hit the lane. And being a straighter player, I could count on the EXO's course texture to deliver a smooth, consistent motion through all sixty feet of the lane. Further, as the night went on, I especially liked how the EXO Solid Reactive blended the over-under conditions that developed as the night continued. And if you are looking to play around urethane and the heavy carry-down it presents, look no further. The EXO Solid Reactive will give you the confidence to play far right and still have plenty of power to spare at the pocket! So if you are a straighter, low-rev player like me. You can count on the EXO Solid Reactive Coverstock will keep you in contention all night against many adverse lane conditions! In conclusion, the DNA is a strong and outstanding new release from Storm. The brilliant combination of Supercoil Core and EXO Solid Reactive coverstock makes the DNA an excellent choice for straighter low-rev players like me. And for those down and in players looking for that "edge" to compete against the modern power game, then the DNA will be a great weapon to keep you in contention all night long! So, stop into your local Storm VIP Pro Shop today and have your DNA ready for the summer completion! It's that good! Rick Klimowicz Storm Products Pro Shop Staff Roll the Ball Pro Shop Penndel, PA

    Storm DNA Coverstock: EXO Solid Reactive Core: Supercoil Factory Finish: 2000 grit Layout: 5 x 4 x 4 Storm’s new Premier line ball is the DNA. I drilled my DNA exactly like my Infinite Physix with a 5 x 4 x 4 layout putting the pin in my middle finger. After some practice, use in league, and use on a 40 ft sport pattern, the DNA and Infinite seem to have similar overall hook potentials. The difference I see is in the covers, which were both at 2000 grit for comparison purposes. The new EXO Solid Reactive cover on the DNA seems to have a larger footprint and definitely bleeds off energy earlier than the Infinite. Although I hit the Infinite with 2000, its ReX Pearl cover seems cleaner and a touch quicker on the backend. I expect that the DNA will have more use on the fresh and as the fronts dry up and/or push a bit, the Infinite Physix will come into play. The DNA is going to be a perfect fit for rev challenged and/or speed dominant players. I also think it’s going to be great at blending lanes and controlling sport patterns.

    The next big hook monster is the DNA. Featuring a new cover/core combination we see a strong low RG asym that doesn't quit. I am beyond impressed with this ball and think it will be the next big thing and go down in Storm's history as one of the most popular asym solids of all time. Think of your Alpha Crux, Sure Lock and Code X level of popularity and this is where I believe the DNA will be in line with. I have thrown this ball a few times and am impressed with how much it continues even as the lanes transition forcing myself deeper and deeper into the lane. Historically, these bigger solids tend to quit as we see a lot of transition although I have yet to see that with the DNA. In league, I have been able to throw it all the way until the end of the night and it continues as well as it did in game 1. This ball will be very versatile and adjust well to different surface changes. This will be great for a variety of lane conditions as well.

    It’s in our DNA. The all new DNA is a brand new ball with a brand new cover and core combination that we have never seen. The all new Supercoil weight block was developed to create a super low RG shape with a greater undrilled intermediate differential. This combined with the new “Exotherm” coverstock that will give you the traction that you are looking for in a strong asymmetric bowling ball. I have seen a lot of great things out of this ball so far. For me this ball is stronger and quicker off the spot than a ball like the Reality. I find myself using this ball early in blocks and/or on longer or high volume oil patterns. Make sure you go out and get yours today. Layout: 40 x 5 ⅜ x 25

    Storm’s newest premier line ball is the DNA of what they stand for. This ball features a brand new cover and core combination, starting with the Supercoil weight block that yields an RG of 2.47, Differential of 0.053 and PSA of 0.023 and is wrapped around the EXO Solid coverstock. I drilled mine 5.5 x 5 x 5 and when I first got this ball I was super excited for it because I have had such success with the Proton Physix and Super Nova. Looking at the numbers I thought this ball would be as early and kinda lazy on the back like the Roto Grip Gem was but after throwing this ball for a little bit I was shocked on how much this ball actually continued on the backend. I would say its more of a stronger/earlier version of the 900 Global Reality more than the previous balls I mentioned. I can see myself using this ball as a number #2 ball right after my Proton or Super Nova because its going to be just as strong but offer me a touch more continuation and before balls like the Zen Soul and Eternity. If you feel like solid asymmetrical balls haven’t matched up to your game because they are just too strong but still want to give it a try your going to want to grab a DNA because it gives you the best of both worlds.

    Layout: 60 x 4 5/8 x 35 The biggest compliment that I can give the DNA is that it rolls like a stronger, beef-ed up Phaze II. Indeed, I see a similar motion between the two, with the DNA being 2-3 boards stronger overall. Even though this ball is a touch cleaner in the front part of the lane than the Gem or Super Nova, it can still handle any heavy or fresh oil conditions. The DNA has a massive amount of midlane roll without detracting from its entry angle. The DNA fits perfectly between balls such as the aforementioned Gem or Super Nova, and the strong shiny asyms such as the Exotic Gem or Absolute.

    Cover: EXO Solid Reactive Core: Supercoil RG: 2.47 RG. Diff.: 0.053 Finish: 2000-Grit Abralon Fragrance: Strawberry Short Cake Storm’s new DNA is an Asymmetrical Solid piece that is good for Medium-Heavy conditions. PAP is 5 5/16 R 1 3/16 Up. Rev Rate: 400. Speed: 16.5. Drilled this piece with the Pin up between the fingers and CG kicked out 1” from the palm and 1/2” Above of the Mass Bias. Out of Box ball motion starts in the mid lane with a smooth motion on the backend. I took a 2k and 3k Abralon afterwards and it was still started in the mid lane with a few boards more on the backend motion. I compared this to the Storm Super Nova & IQ Tour. Storm Super Nova cleaner through the fronts and is 2-3 stronger. IQ Tour was a similar line but stronger on the backend. If you are looking for an Asym Solid that gets length and smooth backend this is the piece to have in the bag. Check Out the Ball motion Video on my YouTube Page:”

    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) I expected a GIANT asym with the DNA. I got a medium continuous cleaner asym that creates a TON more backend that I was expecting! The DNA is much cleaner overall than the Super Nova, Gem and Reality. The Reality was the “tippy big ball” before the DNA. I think the DNA now takes that spot. I’ve never seen a solid Asym come off the spot as hard as the DNA. It really hits the dry and keeps hooking. Usually I can’t drill the bigger asyms pin up because they stand up too much with my ball roll. That is not the case with the DNA. It creates plenty of backend even with my pin up layout. It almost feels like an asym Phaze 2 more than a giant solid asym. The DNA is a unique piece.

    DNA Ball Specs: Coverstock: EXO Solid Reactive with 2000 Grit Finish Core: Supercoil (Asymmetric) Fragrance: Strawberry Shortcake Review: Looking for a new asymmetric solid? Look no further then the new DNA. This ball comes with the new Supercoil core and the new EXO cover. This ball gets plenty of traction from the new cover. From what I saw this ball was slightly stronger than my Reality. I went with a pin down layout on this ball. It gave me a very smooth ball motion that got through the fronts but had plenty of mid lane motion. I plan on using this ball early and often on tournaments with higher volumes and at leagues where the center tends to put out higher volumes. I can see this being a good ball for lower rev bowlers who may struggle getting a bowling ball to hook. This ball is going to pick up at the mid lane and give them a nice smooth reaction to the pocket. Make sure you pick one up when these get released! Will Tefft Storm Staff Member #Stromnation

    Looks like a duck, quacks like a duck…not a duck No seriously, The DNA looks like a Phaze2, Rolls like an Asym. Phaze2…Definitely NOT a Phaze2. The DNA has the all new combo of the Exo solid Cover and the Supercoil core. This ball defines smooth, predictable, hard hitting. The pins seem to stay low all the way through the pin deck. As long as the lanes aren’t hooking too much in the front, This ball is such a great benchmark ball. I know exactly where I need to go after this ball starts burning up in the fronts, which seems to be the typical thing for it to do. I actually smoothed the cover to a light 4000, just so I could stay in it a bit longer! This one should not be passed up! I used my typical pin up layout: 5x4x2 Balls getting a lot of play Infinite Physix: 5x4x2 Eternity: 5x4x2 Phaze4: 5x4x2 Fate: 5x4x2

    Ball Specs: Storm DNA 2000-Grit Abralon EXO™ Solid Reactive Weight Block: Supercoil™ Core (Asymmetrical) Color: Red/Black/Violet Review: An all-new core and cover combo is here… Storm’s DNA. Before drilling we expected this ball to be different. Looking at the numbers you can see this big asymmetrical solid has an unconventional low RG and high differential. We drilled this ball with our normal layout: tweener, 350-375 revs, 16.5mph, layout of choice is 4x4x2 (pin is above bridge). We were surprised at how different this big solid is compared to that of a Super Nova, Gem, or Reality. The DNA really stands out compared to these and is much more versatile due to its ability to get through the lane a little cleaner and less flare. This ball will be best used for medium to oily conditions when the Super Nova or Gem is a little too much too early. This ball is suitable for all skill levels and overall we are really happy with the gap that this fills in the Storm line of products. Kyle, Joel, & Dean Johnson Storm Pro Shop Staffers #StormNation

    The New Storm DNA has the Exo Solid Coverstock and the Supercoil Core. When I got the DNA, it impressed me with the shape it made. A lot of midlane control and wasn’t too angular through the pins. When I compared it to my Absolute with the same layout, I saw that they both complimented eachother. Read the same part of the lane, just in fractionally different spots. While the DNA hooked earlier and more forward towards the pins, the Absolute read the spot more angular. I have very high hopes for this one and want to see a lot of success with the DNA!

The first thing that I noticed with this ball is that it is cleaner than other big asym balls that are out there. The DNA still allows to have great mid lane read but gives you that continuous motion downlane. The box surface is a great starting point if you need the ball to read earlier. The cover is also going to allow for surface changes very easily. This ball is going to be a great option for when you want something like your proton physix but allows you to see more motion. With being higher ball speed off my hand this is a great ball to start with and use for a majority of league. This ball is going to be great for a variety of bowlers whether you are high speed or high rev rate. This ball is a great ball will be great for heavier patterns or your weekly leagues.

    The new Storm DNA features the all new EXO solid reactive coverstock finished at 2000 grit abralon and the new Supercoil Asymmetric core. The 15 pound DNA has a low RG of 2.47 with a differential of .053 and an intermediate diff of .023. I drilled the DNA at my usual 5 x 4 x 2 for my slower ball speed and higher rev rate. I was a little skeptical at the release of another “big” asymmetrical, I mean how different could it be from the Super Nova, Nova, or previous releases. Well, this DNA is different. For me it is much more playable, and what I mean by that is I can throw this ball longer than previous asymmetricals if given enough oil. The DNA needs oil, that’s a given. However this isn’t just another big ball where once you need to open your angles, it needs to find its way back into your bag in favor of another ball. The DNA has more downlane motion than the Super Nova and Nova, probably due to the difference in the core. On errant shots to the right I could usually expect a weak ten pin with the Novas, but the DNA seems to have an extra gear that gets it not only back to the pocket but gets it to go through the pins the right way. Don’t misunderstand me, this isn’t a stand left, throw it right and watch it hockey stick back, but this ball does seem more forgiving on the heavy oil, longer patterns than most of its predecessors.

We tested the DNA following the state tournament team squad so probably not the best testing environment. However, the DNA showed signs of strength. The ball definitely rolled early and had a smooth overall ball reaction. I don’t feel the DNA was quite as early as the Gem, but was earlier than the Reality. Therefore, I feel the DNA falls in between those two iconic balls. Time will tell if the DNA produces the success those two balls have. Visit your local Storm VIP Pro Shop! #Stormnation #SquadRG

    Layout: 4 1/2 x 4 1/4 x 4 1/2 Surface: 2000 Grit Abralon The brand new Storm DNA brings a brand new Core and Coverstock combination for the Premier Line. The brand new Supercoil core brings a Low RG, High differential and a higher PSA value. This core has a few cutouts in order to keep the differential higher after drilling. Very similar to the Absolute, the DNA keeps strong dynamics in the core after drilling. The new EXO Coverstock is a strong and more dynamic Coverstock to handle higher volumes of oil while giving a high amount of continuation. I had the opportunity to test this on a typical house pattern and a 41ft sport pattern. On the house pattern, I saw a strong midlane roll but saw a lot more push in the front part of the lane than I expected. I was on a house pattern that is 44ft but generally has a lot of overall friction. Normally, solid asymmetrical balls do not work very well for me on this particular house pattern. This was a little different for the DNA. This control of this ball allowed me to be closer to the friction without the ball overseeing it. This characteristic allowed me to move further right with my feet than I would usually be which gave me a straighter target to my target and thus increasing my pin carry. The 2000 grit abralon got the ball long enough down the lane that the ball didn't see the transition as quickly as a similar ball would give me. On this particular house pattern, I would keep the ball at this surface for best results. On the 41ft sport pattern, I actually saw similar ball reaction to the house pattern. The ball was clean but strong in the midlane and so ample continuation. My pin down layout made the ball fairly smooth and gave a lot of control on the sport compliant pattern. I was on a Pro-Anvil lane surface so there was a lot less friction than my house pattern test. At the 2000 grit surface, I saw a little bit over/under on the fresh. A Roto Grip Gem for me rolled stronger in the front part of the lane and had less continuation down lane. I adjusted the DNA's surface to 1000 grit to give me a little closer ball reaction to the Gem. I still actually saw similar comparisons even at 1000 grit. The DNA was essentially a step down from the Gem while still giving me that earlier roll and smoother down lane motion. The difference between the two balls to me can still warrant having both balls in your arsenal depending on your style. The DNA to me felt like an asymmetrical version of the Phaze 2. This ball gives a lot of versatility in terms of drilling and overall ball reaction where other typical strong solids do not give that. As the lanes broke down, I was able to move further left with my feet and target and saw enough continuation to get the corner pins out. Based on what I saw out of this sport and house pattern tests, the DNA can be a good fresh ball with the possibility of being a first transition ball as well .

    Core: Supercoil Asymmetric Cover: EXO Solid Reactive Finish: 2000 Abralon RG: 2.53 (14lb) Differential: 0.048 (14 lb) PSA: .020 ME: Right-Handed Tweener Speed: 12-13 mph Rev Rate: 315 Axis Tilt: 14° Axis Rotation: 74° PAP: 5 1/8 R 7/8 Up Ball Layout: Pin over Bridge 5 1/4 X 5 1/4 X 3 VLS The new Storm DNA brings back the strong early motion to the Premier line. It features a brand new coarse cover stock called EXO solid. At it's box 2k finish this ball GRABS at the front of the lane. To complete the intense hooking power of this ball the new core Supercoil gives it a big motor on the inside too. The result is a ball made to conquer heavy oil. I first tested the DNA in league on the normal high volume house pattern. The front of the lane beds in my home center feature a lot of friction so the volume has been increased to counteract. The 43 ft of oil makes it a requirement to have a strong first ball out of the bag. The DNA's potent early hook is tailor made for this condition as it never seems to miss the front, so it can't get too far right down-lane the way so many other balls seem too. I was very impressed with the pin action I saw from the DNA. Of the other balls that I would put at the top of the hook potential list I would put it between the Gem and the Reality although much closer to the Gem. In-brand the best comparison would probably be the Proton Physix so it should work well as a replacement for people who miss that ball. Obviously people who are speed dominant/rev challenged are going to love this ball, but take it from a guy who's on the lower end of ball speed, the DNA is fantastic when the lanes are oily.

For those that are looking for a similar motion to the Storm Proton Physix or the Super Nova will enjoy the DNA, which provides a new look for your bigger asym solids. At recent MatchMaker events the DNA has sparked bowling enthusiasts. For my review I left the 2000 Abralon factory finish on this ball. I was pleasantly surprised how much the DNA glided through the front part of the lane in comparison to the other balls I mentioned above. After a little lane shine built up on the DNA I was even more surprised and impressed with the results. One aspect I really liked about this ball is it didn't quit or get into the roll phase too early. I'm excited to use this ball on heavier to medium volume THS and some sport patterns. In comparison to my Super Nova where I took a fresh factory 2000 finish and hit the ball four sides with a new 4000 pad to get through the fronts better, the DNA surface did not require an adjustment. For me, my slower ball speed generally has me surfacing balls up slightly to clear the front part of the lane. If my situation is similar to you, you will notice in a few games your new solid will calm down from the oob finish. In regards to transition, I really enjoy what the DNA has to offer. The DNA allows a great deal of forgiveness and it is easy to see when you will need to make a change. The Super Nova along with the DNA make a nice one two punch if you desire a two ball combination out of a block of bowling on heavier volume patterns. Be sure to try out a DNA and fill that gap for fresh league and heavier volume tournament patterns. I'm definitely excited to use the DNA more in tournament competion.

    I drilled my DNA 4 1/2 x 4 x 2 1/2. I left this one at the box finish to see what it could do. The early word on the DNA from other staffers is it looks like an asymmetric PHAZE II both in color and motion. I immediately thought the same thing. The DNA has that easy motion just like the PHAZE II except definitely a stronger cover as it blended out the lane easier I compared it to the SUPER NOVA and GEM, both of the other stronger pieces that I have thrown. The SUPER is a lot more back end motion and I needed my feet further left. The GEM was earlier and it seemed like there just was not enough head oil on the lane to get it to hold energy to hit as I left a lot of burn tens. I did also throw a couple of other balls to ball down like the ABSOLUTE which was about 3-4 boards weaker in the front but quicker down lane and a DARK CODE that I really like on house. The DARK CODE was about 2-3 boards weaker on the house shot down lane. The DNA really played off the DARK CODE for me as I could move off the DNA when it was time for a change. Drill up an DNA if you loved your PHAZE II and just felt it wasn't enough when the lanes had more volume or were longer and you didn't want to put 500 or 1000 on it. Also if one of your stronger pearls just isn't reading early enough. This is where the DNA excels. It is stronger but controllable.

    My new ball review on the Storm Bowling DNA. Layout: 55 x 2 1/2 x 35 at box condition of 2000 grit Abralon. Supercoil core with the new EXO solid reactive coverstock. Tested and used on older HPL and newer SPL at two local bowling centers, Colony Park Lanes and Hanover Bowling Centre. Practiced for over 2 hours with the DNA, the Storm iQ Ruby, and Roto Grip TNT. Was able to use the DNA on the fresh conditions and when I beat up the pattern with these three different balls. The Supercoil core is very potent when it comes to performance of getting the ball down the lane without pushing the ball too far down the lane. The new coverstock - EXO solid reactive is an intense solid reactive coverstock because of the chemical reaction when the material goes from a liquid form to a solid. The reaction is called: exotherm. For me the DNA was a HUGE step up from the other reactive solid I am currently using, the Roto Grip TNT, the motion off the pattern was stronger and bigger movement the TNT. The DNA did not quit on me at any point during my practice sessions and in league. I cannot believe this ball is this GOOD!. The surface has held up very well on the demo balls in the Storm Matchmaker set I have used over the past few months. Easy to keep clean and is a great choice for any level and style of bowlers out there. Please see your local pro shop for your new ball!
