Punched my FIRST !Q Tour.. WOW
« on: March 05, 2017, 06:27:25 PM »
Never had the solid....Punched it for state and walked away with $650 in side pots and will cash decently in every event. 

I must be stupid for waiting this long.

They didn't show the Makos, Gauntlets, and high flaring solid assymetricals that everyone is throwing on the fresh. Depending on what you start with on the fresh is going to depend on how strong of a ball you can use third game.

This.

IQT is going dead straight at nationals. Gonna need some teeth to get the Trick done.

My colleague just returned from USBCs and when asked about something like the IQ Tour out there, he said, "that ball wouldve hooked tomorrow". Meaning it wouldve taken massive amounts of play for that ball to wrinkle.

This is good information, even if I don't have a complete picture of the person and their style of play.
Always a bit disappointing to learn that a ball you like and have hopes of using may not bring enough horsepower to be a good option. But I would rather have more info to work with than less, so it's all useful.
I do still love my IQT, which was the original intent of this post, by the way.
Thanks for the heads up.

Hey everyone the general consensus is that team hooks, doubles and singles doesnt. With hooking middles on both. 

My vote on Synthetics will the be tour on team
Trick on doubles and singles

I'll be bringing a 3rd. No clue as to what just yet.

What about the NRP with some surface? Don't you need a ball up from the Trick?

I would bring at least 1 clean & angular option. A lot of the singles leaders were able to throw up a big 3rd game with balls such as, Xeno Pearl, Kinetic Emerald, Code Black.

I'm going Mako - Tyrant - Legion Solid for the options on the fresh. IQ Tour, Arson Low Flare, Code Black for the transition.

Personally, I'd be bringing Incinerate, Night Hawk Stealth, Dream On for the fresh, Torch, Night Hawk SE, Boost Pearl for the burn.

NRP could be an option for some of the break down.

Respec hyrbid would be the best up the boards option if I need some polish out there.

The trick will the strongest ball I bring. My standard layout is a ton of midlane and control on the backend.  My issue isn't OIL, it's "Lack of oil" usually with a 15 mph ball speed, rev dominant and the ability to really back off the speed if needed on oil. 


I have a new hyroad pearl that is VERY smooth off the spot which might be the breakdown ball...

Idk boys, I'm pretty adamant on solids at this event.

The Hy-Road Pearl is my favorite by far for breakdown on sport patterns in that 38+ ft range.

I finally got my IQ Tour.  4" pin-to-pap, up above the bridge.  I'm going to start with a fresh 2000 surface.

Going to put some work in on a sport pattern Friday night.....I'll report back after.
