The Natural Pearl is the newest addition to the “Hot” line of Storm bowling balls. This is Storm’s second urethane ball to use the Turbine core featured in the original Natural. The Natural Pearl wraps the black pearlized U2S urethane cover around the Turbine core to allow it to have its four inch flare potential without the early hook that was sometimes troublesome with the original Natural.

This type of ball reaction allowed the Natural Pearl to match up best on our dry test pattern. All players were able to start much further right than with the original Natural. The pearl cover allowed the Natural Pearl to glide on the oil and clear the front of the lane much easier than the original. The added length allowed it to store enough energy to consistently kick out the corner pins from the outside angle all three
