There's always rumors that people like to start just to rile people up, the Hyroad has been "getting discontinued" at least twice a year for the last 4 or 5.  No idea until it actually happens.

I'd highly recommend bidding on a NIB on eBay while they pop up relatively cheap.

My teammate averaged 208 for the 17/18 season using an Intense.  For the 18/19 season he averaged 195 using the Code X.  Same house/same shot. It did not make me want to invest in the Code X.  Your mileage may vary.

Every time I bitch about my IQ Tour Solid, my storm staffer friend tells me to drill the Code X and watch the back row go out.

If you’re on anything remotely easy the IQ Tour has no business in the bag. And before some of ballreviews “finest” show up, no, averaging 207 on house “isn’t working”.

Since it's unofficially officially confirmed now. I pulled the trigger on another with Buddies price drop to $139.95. Ordered a 2-3' pin, kinda of wondering if I should have gone 3-4" pin, but I don't think it'll matter.

Son!Q, Hyper Cell Fused, and Intense Fire all marked down on there too for disco.

Pin distances mean exactly zero now btw.

I wish more ball drillers understood this. I wasted close to $400 on 3 short pin x outs w/drilling. They all rolled terrible, pin high. Early and flat on 3 totally different balls. I looked into the inserts on one to discover he buried the fingers about 3 1/2" deep on all of the balls.

I'm not sure if it was incompetence, or their way of "teaching me a lesson for buying balls online". Either way I'll never go back there again. Between them and other shops in my area missing spans and pitches regularly, I'm at the point of paying buddies to drill and ship every new ball I get. They haven't missed spec for me yet.

I 100% get it on symmetrical pieces. I just questioned it on asymmetricals in ease of drilling with the pin and MB placement.
