Review – The Axiom will allow you to open up your angles early and will get the ball started early in the midlane. The Axiom is essentially Storm’s version of the Idol although a little heavier rolling and more continuous down lane. I would recommend the Axiom as a ball for heavier oil league conditions and good use for fresh medium sport patterns. For Average house bowlers with lower ball speeds the Axiom works very well on house condition. The Axiom will pick up early and not over react on the back end because of the symmetrical (orbital) core. The Axiom can be used for sport patterns and house shots giving versatility. I will say the Axiom has a little more down-lane reaction than the Phase II. The Axiom roles pretty early so I personally would not use it as a benchmark ball. I do believe it would be great in my arsenal as well as yours especially when you need a ball to pick up early and have strong continuous backend motion.
Product Description – The Orbital Symetric Core, you can expect a strong midlane read without losing any backend motion. The Orbital Core has a low RG which is good for midlane read and a perfect compliment with the NeX Solid Cover. Factory Finish: 3000 Grit Abralon, Flare Potential: Radius of Gyration (RG): 16lbs – 2. 47; 15lbs – 2. 48; 14lbs – 2. 53, Differential (Diff): 16lbs – 0. 048; 15lbs – 0. 050; 14lbs – 0. 049 Intermed.
Here is what Storm has to say about the Axiom:
Design is thinking made visual. In Storm’s case, it’s design materialized. We understand that the perceptible is as important as the tangible. NeX (Nano Extreme) is Storm’s earliest reading cover to date. NeX Solid was remarkably earlier hooking than NRG on any pattern, or any surface we tested it on. We love all things new at Storm, and the Orbital Core is no exception. This modern take on an established concept has us stirring with excitement. The Orbital Core has a distinctly low RG axis which further complements the midlane read for which NeX was developed.
