Question:


I throw the ball between 15-16 mph and my rev rate is somewhere between 275-300. Would this ball work for shorter or flatter patterns with my stats?

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


Yes, you could still find this ball as a good option for you but you would just want to make sure your driller does a layout that best fits your style. Also, this ball is ideal for medium lanes out of the box so if you find you are in lighter oil mostly and this ball reads a little too early on the lanes then you may could adjust the finish to a slightly smoother finish to give it a little more length.

Question:


I have a storm phaze 3. It’s been good when there is medium oil. But when the lane starts to dry, it starts to Brooklyn or hook more while throwing in the same spot. Would this ball help in that situation to hit the pocket on a dryer lane?

3/21/2024 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


Out of the box the IQ Tour 78 is also designed to work well in medium oil. This ball will have a lower hook potential than the Phaze 3 in medium oil but it would still work best in medium conditions and some light oil. The good thing however is that this ball comes out of the box with a 500 grit finish. If you need to get this ball to work better in lighter and drier conditions you could take the cover to a smoother finish like a 2000 grit or even 4000 grit and this should take some of the grip off the ball to give it a little better length in drier shots.
