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”.

This include the fusion?  Finally pulled trigger on one.  Code X is a lot of ball for house shot.
Less is more especially with forum posts.

LOL - Don't worry too much if the Code X is being discontinued.  Radical has a ball on the approved list that looks just like it!  The Guru Force.   LMAO!

You might get hook, and a nice back end, but not the smell.  LOL!  Although I like some of their stuff too, Radical is at it again with copying Storm's color schemes.  Dang!   LOL!

You do realize that 'Radical' doesn't put out overseas releases from the company right? If its called the Guru Force, its an independent distributor paying to make a ball for their clientele. They pay Radical to pour whatever balls they want and put whatever name on them with any cover/core combo the client wants. They usually only do a 500-750 ball pour for overseas market. So if you really wanted to, pay to pour 500 balls you could call a ball manufacturer up and get a special ball made just for you. With whatever name, color, core/cover material you want.

If you hear rumors that a certain ball is on the way out, pay attention to what the big Internet sellers are doing with it. My experience is that they always know before staffers, and you’ll start seeing markdowns, pronouncements of “limited availability” for pins/weights, and other clear signs that the ball is being closed out.


It’s not that hard to read the tea leaves.

Soniq definitely deserves to hit the dusty trail. That ball was the Optimus Lite, pure dookie.

Never tried it, but was curious how it compared to the Code Black being the R2S Pearl and a very dominant weight block.

It was typically too much or never enough. The core just dominated the shell.

Up next: Scream, Ink#2
Interest: Purple Hammer 16#2
