Just missing a proper benchmark, but pretty good.
A hyroad Max/phaze ii/iq tour solid/rubicon would probably fit the bill.
In the bag [MBT, Teal HB, HB Revival, BBGum Boost]
*Now Testing* Zen
Coming soon.... Burner Solid

Not a bad arsenal at all.  I agree with billdozer in the fact that you don't have the benchmark ball in there.  I'd throw in a IQ Tour Solid, Hy-Road Max or even look at 900 Global.  Options such as the Aspect, HB Intensity, or Ordinance C4 could really fit the bill here. 

On the HB Intensity, you get a proven asymmetrical core, strong solid cover, but have a smooth downlane reaction that can provide a lot of versatility. 

The Aspect I think has more continuation than the Storm Axiom since the Axiom tends to read very early.  The Axiom still has a strong cover and a strong symmetrical core, so polish and/or a slightly weaker layout can really make it be a great ball to use across multiple conditions.  The Aspect will have identical core numbers to the Idol Solid in 16#.

The Ordinance C4 has a hybrid cover and also has similar core numbers to the IQ Tour.  The Tour will have a slightly lower diff.  You still get a nice smooth reaction front to back, but it actually tends to roll earlier and has more of an arc motion than the Tour.  The Tour actually tends to have a little more continuation and sharper backend motion. 

You really can't go wrong with any of these options.

Thanks for the feedback.

I To add to the convo, I also possess the original PhysiX which doesn’t see much play in my primary house.
