RayRay, this won't make your choice between the IQ Tour Edition and IQ Tour Pearl any easier. But, it was interesting that another lefty was rolling the IQ Tour Pearl on the pair right next to me, and we both finished with exactly 888 for series. He would have won the last high game pot with a 250, if not for my 258. Bottom line is I don't think you can go wrong with either ball. Just depends which reaction you prefer and which ball matches up better to the expected lane conditions relative to the other balls in your arsenal.

Oh I'll save you a trip.



I don't know for sure, but I'm hearing we will see it around December.

Not yet. I've heard we will see it around December here in the States but that's just rumor and innuendo.

Very cool! Funny that we were just talking about an IQ Tour hybrid. I liked the comparison video, too, even without reading or speaking Japanese.



Btw, was that an original RotoGrip Cell Nucleus core I saw on the other ball on that page? A MicroBite HyperCell? Hmmm...(thoughts racing)...

Let's hope we at least get the Hybrid IQ. That Cell, I like but I don't expect we'll see it frown We can never have nice things, LOL.

This weekend, I had a chance to test the IQ Tour Edition on the over-under, top-hat-style THS condition at a local bowling center. Normally, my options on this shot are to move out with a weaker ball, or in with a stronger ball. The IQ Tour offered a third option...move in with my feet, and out with my target. This ensured the ball would hit the bumper outside, and with its early, arcing, and continuous roll, it smoothed out the trajectory for my near misses, improving both my pocket and carry percentage. This ball hits the pocket so hard, I am getting used to seeing it exit the lane around the 9 pin (lefty).

For the three tests I had in mind for the IQ Tour Edition, I give it three thumbs up! It's definitely a keeper.

Kind of interesting, how hard these hit and work through the pocket despite the relatively lower diff.

I think I pick up my IQTP this afternoon.

Joe, I get pretty much the same results with mine- if I get it out a little early, it doesn't automatically jump through the nose, but like yours, does finish behind the 9 a lot. I think the lower diff helps it to retain a little more energy, as it's not necessarily rolling over a dry part of the shell each time. Funny how a move to a little lower tech has been so successful for them.
