IQ Tour, Hy Road need third ball to round out my bag
« on: June 14, 2021, 05:27:01 PM »
Hello Bowling Family,
I need some great suggestions on a good/great 3 ball bag. I already have the IQ tour, I'm going to purchase a Hy road. Now I need a piece to round my 3 ball bag. If I already have that ball please let me know. My current weapons are: Hammer Gold Widow, Hammer Gauntlet, Hammer Black Urethane, Storm Drive, IQ Tour and Storm Timeless ( I did not include my plastic ball). The company do not matter as they don't pay me. Two hander, speed 14-15mph. Thank you in advance

Since you mentioned only medium strength pieces,  I'll suggest the the 900 Global Zen pearl, would be a good fit, to round out the IQ, and the Hyroad. My .002 cents.

Hello Bowling Family,

As a two hander since the early 1990s, let me give you what I would recommend.  Being that you are a fellow two hander but with slower ball speed, I am going opposite of the direction lefty went in and going more lower end.  Look at a ball like the Electrify, Beast or Rhino.  Secondly, unless you are getting the Hyroad for a really good deal, I would go Phaze II simply because of the fact that it has a lower RG to help read the lane better.  You could do a 3 ball Storm arsenal consisting of:

Phaze II
IQ Tour
Electrify Pearl (Similar to the Beast and Rhino. 

My thought is that you have the IQ to play straighter, Phaze II when there is more oil and the IQ doesnt have enough backend continuation, and the Electrify when the lanes break down and you need something to help get down the lane and yet create enough angle to kick the corners out.  That would give you a solid 3 ball arsenal to start and then build from there when you need to.

Thank you, and you are correct about the IQ. Trying to get my speed up but don't know how to do it. I will get the Phaze II and the Electric. Hy road I was getting a deal but I don't want to spend money if I don't have to. If you have any suggestions on how to get more speed, I am all ears.

Would you happen to have a video of yourself you can post on here?  That way we can get a better idea on what changes, if any, can be made to help you out.

Something like an incite or an RST-X1 will give you the most differentiation in your bag, surface prep and cover wise.
