This is correct. Storm plastics are shipped with Brunswick labels on the shipping boxes.
Is it only spareballs (by Storm) that are made in the Brunswick factory?

Re: Brunswick purchases EBI

Where are Storm (and 900global and Roto Grip) balls being made?

I heard that high performance ones are made in the US and low/spareballs are made in Mexico. Is there any truth to that?

Are Storm balls also being made in the same Mexican plant as Brunswick's.

Re: Final shaving of plugs

For those of us not very familiar with some terms and descriptions, photos or video would be better and self explanatory. Even cut in grips is something i am interested in (i am not a pro shop operator). Thanks!

Re: How do I increase my bowling ball speed?

That's kinda weird. Long ago when they taught to raise the ball, it was harder for me. Once i watched the USBC video showing how and why to lower the ball and move back, it felt kinda easy to pick up for me. (to lower ball speed significantly was a bit harder but still not complicated to me). For me...

Re: Question about measuring rev rate

From the numbers you are giving, there could be some error. The gap between them is a bit too big. When measuring the whole lane the RPMs are more . But they are not the true RPMs the player has. In our alleys here there is so much noise i don't know if i would be able to single out the "thumps" on ...

Re: Question about measuring rev rate

Always count the revs off the hand. That is what the player imparts on the ball. Everything else is effected by other parameters (ball core, lane, lane oil, ball surface). Weird way you chose there to measure them though. I hadn't thought to use sound instead of sight to do it. I think using sound i...

Re: Brunswick DOT

I believe this is what you are referring to: [youtube]https://youtu.be/BOTBItDUlKk[/youtube] …...and I think you are confused on this point. A ball is designed as a system to react a certain way & do what is intended. One cannot redesign /reorient the core by drilling it in an 'inverted' manner. IF...

Re: PAP marking and rules

Hadn't heard of it elsewhere, but had the idea myself a few months back, so i did it in one of my balls. It was the only legal way. Looks great if you make the circle a bit big and colored bright and in contrast with the local color. Mine is yellow.

Re: Easy RPM chart

For a very quick way to know where someone is, its ok i guess. But since it incorporates all the parameteres than alter it, it is not the accurate way. Which is the one off the hand, with a slow mo camera, and on the first frames of the video. Since for these things i like to be accurate, i always d...

Re: Surface Speculation

Its hard to say what "the right thing to do " is. There are many things that can be done or perceived wrong. Even the impression of how strong or early the ball reacts on the lane (which lane, same lane, same line, same pattern? you get my point ) Usually new balls don;t have the exact surface adver...

Re: Brunswick DOT

Question : As i recall, there are 3 types of asymmetric balls in relation to the pin : 1.pin asymmetric (most of the mass of the core near the pin) 2.mass neutral ( most of the mass of the core near the center) 3.pin away asymmetric (most of the mass of the core, on the opposite side of the pin).

Re: The core hitting the pocket...

Nice video.... i think we are describing different things, or we interpret them differently. For example in this video, if the black light green dot is the pin, what i see is that it STARTS standing up at release (the circle it makes is huge almost the total circumference of the ball), and at the p...

Re: I've noticed a trend and I'd like some clarification

Are you sure your theory is correct, since forward pitch is angled toward the palm. Reverse pitch would allow smoother exit with a result of more roll. It sounded weird to me too. But it is certainly not my theory. In one of the USBC videos, they mention that when the fingers are with forward pitch...

Thanks for the info bowl1820 !

So you say Storm doesn't use it because Mo wont allow it ? Meaning he allows every other company except Storm?

@guruU2 : what is your explanation? same as bowl1820s ? If yes see above.

Re: I've noticed a trend and I'd like some clarification

Some of our junior bowlers went to the Storm Youth Championships last year. A couple of them came back with new fits. All of the ones fitted down there came back with 3/4" reverse pitch in their fingers. More recently, I had another junior bowler get fitted at a Silver level camp again with 3/4'' r...
