The Crux continues Storm's pattern of creating strong bowling balls for medium-heavy lane conditions that still maintain a strong backend reaction. Though this beast will shine on fresh or heavier patterns, it possesses plenty enough down lane motion to still be usable on almost all medium oil patterns. I was impressed with how good the pin action was with this bowling ball also, many shots that hit half pocket saw the 6 pin snap the 10 pin out with ease.

The Crux is a good 5 boards stronger than a similarly drilled Optimus. When doing the shooting for the video review, the first shot I threw with the Optimus from the same line as the Crux barely hit the head pin. A healthy 4 or 5 board move right with the Optimus got me back in the pocket. The Optimus is 4 or 5 feet further down the lane before it starts to hook, as well.
