Storm Hy-Road Solid

Storm Hy-Road Solid

With major victories ranging from the PBA tour to international championships, the Hy-Road has won the world over. In fact, the original Hy-Road celebrated its fifth anniversary late last year and is still going strong!

Bowlers love the shape of this Weightblock; the proof is evident in the overwhelming demand from touring professionals to recreational players alike! And while the original Hy-Road is often a great choice for a wide variety of players on Different lane conditions, at times we all need a little more Hook and motion out of our arsenals.

That’s why Storm is introducing the new Hy-Road Solid . You will get that same cherished motion as the original version but with more traction in the midlane, just what you need when bowling on heavier oil conditions.

As you might recall, the number one factor of ball motion is Coverstock. So, to expand our Thunder Line with the same great characteristics of the famed Road series, we called upon the proven R2S Solid Reactive shell for its uncompromised Performance.

They even prepared this aggressive shell with a 2000 Grit PAD to really give it some teeth to dig deep into the heavy oil. Why did they do this? Because they know how frustrating heavy oil can be.

And don’t sweat having to decide how to drill your new Hy-Road Solid . You can use your favorite layout with confidence (or let Storm’s Vector Layout System find the right one for your style of play) as the dynamic Inverted Fe Technology Weightblock is one of the finest. Part of what makes this special is the thicker shell which transfers more energy to the pins at impact. More energy means more strikes, and more strikes leads to higher scores and bigger trophies!

Layout:4 ¾ x 5 ¼ x 2 ⅜



Der legendäre Hy-Road nun mit einer Solid Schale. Die Vorfreude war riesig. Das 5 inch Layout sollte Länge und Knick erzeugen, wenn einmal wirklich mehr Öl auf der Bahn ist.

Ergebnis: Der Hy-Road Solid ist für diesen Plan einfach zu stark. Selbst bei Pattern um 42 Fuss und hohem Volumen, kam der Ball einfach immer zu viel.
Also: Schale anpassen. Von 2000 Grid auf 4000 erhöht. Der Ball ging etwas länger und wurde eckiger, aber er war mir noch immer „zu mächtig“.

Nach leichtem Anpolieren der Schale habe ich nun einen echten Solid Kracher in der Tasche. Starker Ball für viel Öl, starke Rückmeldung und der typische Hy-Road Move im Backend! Was will man mehr?

Für alle die, die den original Hy-Road geliebt haben oder noch immer spielen: Hier ist die gleiche Variante für mehr mehr mehr und noch mal mehr Öl!

The legendary Hy-Road with a solid Cover. I couldn’t wait to get mine. The 5-inch layout was intended to produce length and flip for those rare moments when there is actually something of a flood on the lane.

The result: The Hy-Road Solid is stronger than we had anticipated. And too strong for what I had in mind. Even on a 42-foot pattern with a high volume of oil, the ball was al-ways a wee bit too strong. What to do: Changed the surface from 2000 to 4000 GRIT PAD. This resulted in the ball going a bit longer with a stronger flip. But even this was still “too much” ball motion for my liking.

The next step was to give the Cover a light polish, and now I have a true firecracker in the bag - a strong ball for heavy oil; strong, yet predictable reaction and the typical “Hy-Road move” in the backend. What more could I ask for!

For all of us who loved the Hy-Road and still use it: here is the same weapon for heavy, heavier, and even heavier oil (and then some)!

Sincerely, Frank Heine
