The Storm !Q Tour Emerald continues in the sucess of the long line of !Q bowling balls. The !Q Tour Emerald takes the R2S Pearl Reactive converstock and wraps it around the C³ Centripetal Control Core. This combination assists the bowling ball in easily gliding through many lane conditions in addition to a big backend reaction.
Have improved my average going from a 163 to a 175 and every week I am doing better and better. I love this ball. It is very forgiving when you miss your mark a bit right and it really hits hard. I have 5 other balls but this has become my favorite and go to ball.
I fell in love with the !Q series when I shot my first legit 300 game with the !Q Tour. With the Emerald, my average has gone up 22 pins. I love the reaction on Medium to dry lanes. But I have to keep my speed consistent.
I got this ball on the recommendation of a teammate. I am what I refer to as a tweener, I don't crank the ball, but I don't throw it straight either. In all conditions, except very heavy oil, I can count on a consistent hook into the pocket.

What is the difference between the IQ Emerald and the Sonic?7/15/2019 - By Tim
The only difference between the two bowling balls would be the lane conditions. The SoniQ is for medium-heavy and the IQ Emerald is only for medium oil.7/15/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
What's the difference between the it emerald and the roto grip Halo vision ?8/2/2019 - By Buck
The Halo Vision will be a high performance ball and the IQ Tour Emerald is an upper mid performance ball. The Halo Vision will be a tad bit more aggressive.8/6/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
What is the difference between the idol pearl and the iq emerald?9/5/2019 - By Papa Jon
The weight blocks seem to be the biggest difference. The Idol Pearl has a stronger weight block and it can handle a little more oil because of the weight block making the ball stronger. The Emerald is more designed for medium oil.9/12/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff

What's the difference between this ball and super soniq? is it just that the coverstocks are different?12/5/2019 - By Anthony
The coverstock and finish are different and this can make a lot of difference. The Super Son!Q is designed to read earlier on the lanes and can also handle heavier oil better while the Emerald is designed to go longer with a more angular backend and it works well in medium oil.12/5/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Would this act like a roto grip shatter ball12/16/2019 - By Mike
The IQ Tour Emerald would actually go down the lane a little further but has a stronger backend hook than the Shatter. This also makes the IQ handle medium oil mostly while the Shatter was originally for medium to lighter oil.12/19/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
What is the difference in performance, if any, between the Emerald and the IQ Tour?1/2/2020 - By Mike S.
The Emerald is a pearl coverstock with a polished finish to go longer on the lanes and have a sharp backend hook while the IQ Tour has a 4000 grit sanded finish to help it read a little earlier on the lane for a smoother reaction.1/8/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
What is the difference between the tour fusion and the tour emerald?2/7/2020 - By Andy
The only difference is the coverstock. The cover on the Fusion was a R2S Hybrid and the cover on the Emerald is an R2S Pearl. The Emerald will go a little longer on the lane but the Fusion will be a little stronger over all and this makes the Fusion more suited for medium - heavy oil while the Emerald is better for medium only.2/11/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
What the difference between the Storm Astrophysix and this balling ball4/30/2020 - By BC
They both have the same coverstock and same finish but the Astrophysix will be stronger because it has a stronger asymmetric weight block while the IQ Tour Emerald has a weaker symmetric weight block.4/30/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Can I used this bowling ball after my phase 35/27/2020 - By BC
This would be very similar to the Phaze 3 and only be just slightly less hook potential so you may could use this after the Phaze 3 but it would not be long before you had to switch again to something less aggressive.5/27/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
What would you recommend. For heavy oil and being a lefty?6/6/2020 - By Pat
The IQ Tour Emerald would be more suited for medium oil but if you wanted something for heavier oil you could try the Omega Crux or the AstroPhysix which are also pearl coverstocks to give you good length but still enough to work in heavier oil.6/8/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
do you have it in a 14 lb8/31/2020 - By weasel
How does the storm !Q tour emerald compare with the brunswick fearless, are they that similar10/14/2020 - By Me.Nobody
This will be a close comparison actually. Both have good length with a decent backend hook. Both are upper mid performance options designed for medium oil conditions also.10/15/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Would this be a good ball for a senior changing from a conventional grip to a finger tip grip10/28/2020 - By Doc
Most proshops would recommend finger tip drilling on any performance ball. This ball does have good length so if changing to the finger tip grip slows down your ball speed, this could be a good option to break later on the lanes.10/30/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
