I would say Hy-Road and IQ Tour.

The balls having staying power in an era where stuff disappears in 6 months.

My son absolutely loves his IQ Tour. He’ll never not have one in his bag, provided it’s made or he has one left.

There's several that have helped storm stay on top of the competition like the virtual gravity, t-road solid, marvel pearl etc


But the answer is the hyroad, and Iq tour.  Both balls are big sellers, and have had much success on tour. 

It seems now though both are slowing down in popularity...

Can't wait to see if they do a 10 year anniversary hyroad????!!!!
In the bag [Infinite Physix, Volatility Torque, Night Road, Phaze III, Burner Solid, Hustle AU]
*Now Testing* IQ Ruby, Renevant, another IQ Tour solid
Coming soon...???

Virtual Gravity
Special Agent
Black Thunder
IQ Tour

If they remade the VG or Special I would buy a case.

Just don't see as many as you used to, the iq tour is known as the 9/ machine. When is rheblast time you saw either being thrown on tv?

I m just assuming but I don't think sales are up?...

Don't have a ton of experience with Storm balls per se, but enjoy what I've owned over the years, and my favorite being my trusted and true HyRoad.  :D

Storm... those are the balls that smell, right?

Trauma ER, without a doubt. Granted, I haven't really thrown Storm much. Had a Thunder. That ball was rad. Erase it was meh.

If I had to put together a Storm lineup right now, I'd say Sure Lock, Phaze II, Code X, SoniQ, HyRoad, Pitch Black.

THAT BEING SAID, Roto Grip's line up has looked better than Storm's in my eyes for years. That lineup would go Hyper Cell Fused, Dare Devil Trick and Danger, All Out Show off and an Ink.

My first question would be where on earth would you need that much firepower with a Code X, Sure Lock, and Phaze II.

If you're speed dominant and bowl tournaments with more volume on the regular, I can see having these 3 with different surfaces and layouts to differentiate them.

If you're only bowling house shots, not so much.

Gotta cover the heavy stuff when you run into it.

So the HyRoad and SonIQ would be in the house shot bag. Maybe I would swap out the X for a Black.

Favorite Solid: IQ Tour
Favorite Pearl: Code Black
Virtual Gravity and X-Factor for nostalgia winners!

I've tried a couple Hyroads but found them to be too sensitive on fresh THS and too aggressive for sport. Although my game is more rev dominated then most.
Just an unbiased bowling enthusiast trying too enjoy the game with each set.
