Looks like a new ball coming.  Pic posted on Facebook by international brand bowling.  It's a US release

Anyone have more info?  Some comments said R2S pearl but no mention of core

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.
Faball Burgundy, Blue, Black Hammers
Faball Red Razor 
AMF Sumo
AMF Gunsmoke Cobra
Visionary The Crow
Visionary Ogre Urethane
Amflite MagicLine
C300 EPX T1 and some boring reactives

Just a ball junkie house hack on staff with and representing no one but myself.

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.
