Hy-road Nano fragrance? Box says one thing...
« on: December 04, 2017, 12:17:46 PM »
Anyone else notice the Storm website says the fragrance for the Hy-road Nano is Coconut Cream, whereas the box says Coconut Marshmallow?

Well, to me, marshmallow and cream are very similar.  Both sound delicious.

The fragrance isn't overpowering and doesn't smell terrible.  Most of the people that have gotten a whiff of the fragrance have had positive things to say about it.

Well, different strokes for different folks. I only use Storm and Roto stuff so no ax to grind, but the smell of the one in this area is horrible and everyone who was around agreed. Even the staffer said it was horrible. Great ball though. Going to get one...but that stench....

Grape bubble gum smell of Hy-Road Pearl is better but of the Hy-Roads and IQ Tour none have been that overpowering.  My epoxy ball is the most obnoxious (yummy burnt flux smell) but surprisingly the strongest new ball smell I have had so far was my Venom Shock.   That ball almost had an old school urethane kerosene smell that has just now after a month plus mercifully faded.

Yea, I have had several Motiv balls with that smell. It's not nasty, just odd.

Yeah not nasty but damn strong.  Made mistake of picking up ball from home after delivered still in box and left in my car most of the day (wanted to get drilled after work).  Yowsers.  Love that ball enough it gets a pass.

Mine was way strong OOB. Medium oil I Think Not.  The smell toned down with some polish
