    Storm IQ Nano Tour Pearl

    Posted by Paul Schroeder on Mar 9th 2021

    This ball was the bees knees...just what piece of equipment I needed in my arsenal to have the confidence when up on approach. Ball feels amazing in my hand, as it always does fresh off the Buddies Pro Shop drill press. I've only used the ball once, averaging 23, right out of the box. I'm sure I'll learn the characteristics of the nuances of this ball and even hit 'em better! Thanks Chris and Buddies staff!

    It's all good, but...

    The new Storm !Q Tour Nano Pearl bowling ball is a good ball. Plain and simple, Storm calls this a pearl ball, but it sure does not act like a traditional pearl ball. The !Q Tour Nano Pearl will change your definition of what a pearl ball really is. For me, it is unlike any other pearl that I have because it picks up early and then continues through the pins. It took me a few games to get use to the early roll on the ball, but once I got dialed in, I thought the ball reaction was pretty good. Out of the box, it is definitely a ball for fresher conditions. You will need some oil if you plan to use this ball with the factory surface. However, there are much stronger balls at the same surface grit than the !QTNP. It is a good ball, but at the out of the box surface, you will confronted on whether you want to use a strong ball with a solid or hybrid cover, rather than a competing sanded pearl. It has good flare potential, but my 4 ¼ x 25 drilled ball has tighter flare rings. The ball hooks, but I wouldn’t play deep inside with it and then try to swing it to the gutter to try to get it to the pocket. Once I closed my angles down and played more of an inside, in the oil type of shot, the ball came to life. I see this ball as a second or third option. I also see me using the ball with a little bit of polish or a sheen on top of it’s out of box surface. I think the !QTNP is a good ball, and it hits hard, but it’s a condition specific ball due to it’s out of box finish. Once you polish it, it becomes more versatile, and can be used on more conditions. It won’t be my first choice out of the bag, but time will tell. Your mileage with the ball may vary.

    This is a very smooth rolling ball. Once again the IQ line is a must in everyone’s bag. Buddies pro shop didn’t amazing job on the layout and the drilling of this ball for me. Everything was perfect if I didn’t know better I would say this will probably be my favorite ball of the year.
