The new Storm IQ combines the new PFT™ (Progressive Friction Technology) coverstock and dynamic Centripetal™ core with tremendous results.

I have had the chance to throw the IQ on a fresh 40\' heavy oil house pattern, Kegel\'s Broadway (37\' Challenge Series) pattern and the PBA\'s 37\' Viper pattern. The IQ handled the oil very well on all three patterns and produced excellent entry angle leaving very few flat tens in the process, something we all fear when throwing a strong solid.

Something that has been very noticeable about the IQ\'s brand new cover technology is it\'s durability. There hasn\'t been any self shining going on so far and I\'ve bowled about 15 games with it on heavy oil.

I see the IQ and IQ Tour being a great 1-2 combination in anyone\'s bag. The IQ Tour when a sharper reaction is needed off the spot and the IQ when you need an earlier read and smoother backend reaction. When both balls were fresh out of the box the IQ out hooked the IQ Tour by 4-5 boards which is right in line with Storm\'s comparison chart.

Storm is continuing it\'s domination of the 2012 PBA season with Pete Weber claiming his 47th PBA Regional title on June 24th. Weber used the brand new IQ.
