    Default Replacement for Cracked Ball

    A friend of mine just discovered her Storm Intense Fire has cracked.

    Any suggestions for a similar ball to replace with; preferably in the Storm/Roto-Grip line.

    Thanks!

    I tried to look up the Intense Fire on Stormís website and thereís no sign of it. Maybe somone else will have a better idea what a good replacement might be.

    On their website, you have to search for it, or search for discontinued balls.

    It has a RAD-E core, 2.49 RG, .050 Diff, and .017 Int Diff

    In terms of core specs, the Omega Crux seems to be a good match, however considering the age of the Intense Fire, I think that the Phase III would be a much better choice. IMHO

    Thanks Rob. I'm thinking the Phase III as well. For some reason, she wasn't impressed with my Omega Crux - but to be honest, we only got to play around with it for a few games before the shut-down.
