The Hy-Road Solid from Storm is a ball I never really ended up liking a lot. I had some early success with it, but over the long run it never developed into a go to ball for me, which is unusual because I normally have great success with solids. I felt the ball never really made a strong move in the back for me, which is normally fine as long as the ball makes a decent move in the fronts. My reaction in the fronts didn’t seem to make up for the lack of reaction I got in the backs.
Even though I am sure there are plenty of bowlers that drilled and liked the Hy-road Solid I don’t see a ton of them being used right now in my tournament travels along the Northern East Coast. I am going to rate the ball a 6. In short by the Crux instead, you won’t believe how hard that ball hits the pins!
