Title: Current Balls closest to IQ Tour 30
Post by: mr300ny on November 26, 2017, 10:17:49 PM
What balls currently available are the closest reaction to the Storm IQ Tour 30? I need a new purchase soon. If you can please let a few options. Thanks!

A lot of people would probably disagree, but I would say a Hustle POW.

If you can wait until February that Storm Soniq that is coming out is going to be close.

Actually not far off as far as reaction goes if you ignore some of the numbers . . that core is so different from everything else that's out, so it's hard to find something truly similar.

Not really, the differential is so much higher that it's going to be more like a Marvel Pearl than an IQ, I really don't think it's going to resemble an IQ much at all.

Probably the Motiv Venom Cobra. The IQ 30 had a bit stronger cover, but the core of the Venom is just a bit more, so they should be close.

I can't think of many other balls with that low rg and low diff combo currently being sold. If you can find a Hammer Arson Low Flare, it would probably be similar.

Yeah should have checked the numbers.  Was also thinking of suggesting the Venom Cobra but haven't thrown it and was thinking being a hybrid might not be similar enough to an IQ 30.  Actually the rg, and diff and core are way different  and its longer and a bit more angular than a IQ 30 but the Hy-Road pearl is a darn good middle strength pearl ball.

I was stunned, it says IQ but I think it's going to be a completely different ball from the rest of them.  Hyroad Pearl was one of my thoughts too, but the numbers are just so different.  It shapes like it and kind of acts like it, but depending on the conditions, could act pretty different.

Unfortunately, one really doesn't exist right now.

IMO, hyroad is as close as you gonna get despite the numbers. You could also drill differently to combat the !Q shape as well....

Buy another IQTour 30.  There's a bunch still out there and not at ridiculous prices either.  Can get them for like 175ish shipped.

Good call on that pathogen X.  Might get me the solid at some point.
