|IQ Tour Ruby
|R2S Pearl Reactive
|C3 Centripetal Control Core
The IQ Tour line has been very successful for Storm since its launch in 2012. The new IQ Tour Ruby brings back the R2S Pearl coverstock that was used previously on the IQ Tour Pearl and the IQ Tour Emerald, among many other popular balls. The C3 Centripetal Control Core remains unaltered, featuring the same low RG (2.49″) and low differential (0.029″) symmetrical design from the original IQ Tour. This ball’s ruby-colored pearlized shell is finished with Storm’s new Reacta Gloss finish.

The added traction from the lane and the R2S Pearl coverstock easily got the IQ Tour Ruby back to the pocket. This ball allowed him to play outside of the lines he played on this pattern with the Fate and Revenant. Compared to the original solid IQ Tour, the Ruby had more length and was more responsive to the dry, but it had less total hook. Stroker had the best reaction of our three bowlers on the dry oil pattern. The IQ Tour Ruby effortlessly got through the front of the lane and consistently picked up very well in the midlane. The
