I don't mean to Hijack but is the Hy road that everyone loves (not the new one), is it above or below the IQ Tour? My current line up is Hammer Black Widow Gold, timeless, IQ Tour, Code Black. Would it over lap anything or will it fit in my arsenal? I see someone said it cost $113.00. I am tired of paying all this dam money for balls lol,then a new one come out.

Hy-Road (hybrid the original) is longer and weaker than an IQ Tour and it also carries much better on house shot.  Its pretty much the ultimate house shot killer and well worth the money for most styles.  It can also handle dryer lanes than the IQ Tour.   Just glancing at your arsenal you do seem to have quite a few strong pieces so something a little tamer (but not on the hit I can tell you) might be advised.

Hy-Road 112.95 Bowlerx.com.Cheapest price you will find.Great site to deal with .Hy-Road is hard to beat on a houseshot like Hack said.

now that the question is about price ck out the Pyramid balls less expensive been using them for almost a year now. shot my highest series ever on a 5 man senior league 798
with the FORCE. Try it you might just score big for less.

Pyramid is good but I don't think any of their benchmark balls are in the same league as a Hy-Road on house shot though.  Do love my Path Rising though rarely see conditions where I can use it.

Path Rising takes cover adjustments very well if you would change it to match the conditionds they become very good balls. I have 1 drilled stacked and one drilled low flair. I play on travel leagues and matching ball surface to the lanes is very important .

Yeah was thinking it was more a tournament ball.  See mostly decent house shot on newer synthetic lanes for most part so have other balls that match up better (bit of a ball junkie).  There is one house by the university where the college kids beat it to crap which it is perfect for.  Like going over there occasionally to throw my weaker stuff.
