I have one in the closet that will likely get drilled soon (60 x 4.5 x 75) but I have a volt that will go before it to replace a hy-road pearl that cracked.  Interested to see if anyone posts feedback before I get around to mine.

Anything stand out in particular that makes you say its incredible?
Current 'go-to's: 
- Badger Infused 50 x 5 x 30
- Truth Tour 70 x 4 x 70
- Black Widow Gold 35 x 5 x 30
- Eon 70 x 4 x 70

Coming soon:
Volt, Hyroad Nano, Flux

This ball moves on the backend for me like no other piece I own!

Now I do have it drilled for a skid/snap reaction.....pin over ring, MB set about 3 inches right of the thumb hole.

I am able to send this thing to the 5 board and even with an OOb, it still makes it back to the pocket!! I pushed a shot long once, which, on my THS normally certifies that I'd get a wash-out split....but it didn't happen! this thing turned left and I ended up with light, swisher strike!

The fun part was seeing my opponents with their mouths open, and asking me where'd I get that ball from!

Been bowling on medium heavy oil and this ball loves the oil!

It does not read the mids but the backend is something to behold!

Flux is an interesting piece. Not uncontrollable off the spot, not too early. Good mix between control and backend.

I have a Traffic Cone in my arsenal. I have it drilled 60 x 5.25 x 40. Out of box, I couldn't get a decent read from this ball. Then I tried 3k, not much better. Then 2k, and it was significantly better. Then I tried 1500, and now the ball is money for me.

I find this ball to have incredible length and a surprisingly wild backend reaction. I cannot play straight up with this ball, it's too sideways in the back. I've had the most success with this ball with steeper angles, or playing longer/heavier patterns. It is absolutely *money* for me on the 45' London pattern.

I have a RG Halo drilled basically the same, and the Halo is significantly earlier and rounder in shape.

Buddies does have the Flux in 14# and 15# for $125 right now.
Less is more especially with forum posts.
