Anyone have more info?  Some comments said R2S pearl but no mention of core
Current 'go-to's: 
- Legion Solid 60 x 4.5 x 75
- Inception Pearl 60 x 5.25 x 75
- Legion Solid 45 x 4.5 x 30

So basically a pearl or hybrid version of the original IQ with slightly lower RG?

R2S pearl 2.47 rg .047 diff in 15lbs. Essentially a higher diff IQ Tour Pearl

Ah gotcha none of that PFT stuff.

This ain't your daddy's IQ.  2.47 RG .047 diff.

Even more excited now seeing the numbers. So we're talking a Marvel Pearl's younger brother. Weaker cover and less diff but slight tick down on RG. I'm ready for this one.

I think it is so funny (and I do this too) that we see a new set of releases, get pictures and core numbers, and for one ball we go "MEH", then we see new release #2 and next thing you know, its "I'VE GOT A WOODY!" and you decide right then and there that you have to own it.

I'm not sure I have ever seen this many releases in a row from anybody that generated this kind of near universal appeal from so many different people.

I like the R2S Pearl cover as much as the next guy...but I would have liked to see and updated cover on this core.

I think R2X would have put it too close to the Marvel Pearl. R3S might have been an interesting pairing.

That's what I thought, R3S looks really good on the Intense.  This ball should be somewhere between the Hyroad Pearl and Code Black in terms of reaction.
