Nothing but a smooth reaction

Workable and forgiving, the C3 Centripetal Control Core is a design that revs up quickly, providing a smoother change of direction downlane. This shape is beneficial for players requiring control at the breakpoint. Used only in the !Q Tour series of balls, this core is precisely designed and manufactured using proprietary technology.

The R2S delivers a perfect balance

R2S is synonymous with some of the most successful balls in recent history like the Hy-Road, Frantic, and the IQ Tour. It is renowned for clearing the front part of the lane with an unprecedented movement on the backend. The consistency of this shell through the heads is something to be marveled at.

Best Bowling Ball Ever (for now and in my bag)
This is the absolute best bowling ball I have ever seen. My favorite color is green and this ball is my favorite shade of green. My other two balls (an Ebonite GameChanger and Brunswick T-Zone) are amazing balls themselves, but in my opinion, Storm has got the best thing going with its bowling equipment. Expect me to be a customer of Storm as long as I’m alive.

Smooth and versatile!
The !Q TOUR EMERALD is another great ball in the !Q line! Very smooth with a lot of stored energy and drive through the pins. Even moving a little deeper nothing is sacrificed with power or carry!

Review:
I never rolled the Gold IQ but drilled plenty of them for my customers. I knew that ball was very good, so I had a feeling the Emerald IQ would be another hit for Storm. Man it sure is! The combination of the R2S Pearl Cover and The C3 Core are a perfect match. The ball revs easily, but saves power for backend and a nice hit. The Emerald IQ has a defined move on the back but it is not jumpy. This is one of the best core and cover combinations I have ever bowled with. I have used this ball on 6 different patterns over 4 houses and was able to easily find a line to the pocket with good carry. The Emerald is also forgiving if you make a bad shot. I have drilled the new Emerald for many styles of bowlers and it seems to work for everybody! As I go bowl and watch tournaments there is already plenty of Emerald IQ’s in use. This speaks to the confidence and success bowlers already have with this ball. I put this ball between my Idol Pearl and Halo Pearl in total hook with a bit smoother roll. I recently switched to rolling all Storm and Roto Grip equipment and am very impressed with the motions I am getting.
This ball will be a great addition to any arsenal.

Summary:
The Emerald IQ is a great ball on many conditions.
The color and shelf appeal is very nice.
The entry angle provides a great carry percent.
The Emerald works for many bowling styles.

Simply awesome
I don’t write a lot of reviews, but I thought it was a must on this ball. My iQ 30th Anniversary was my go to ball until now! Bought this ball as soon as it came out and I went back to back 279’s; then moved a pair of lanes for last 2 games and ended up with a 996 series. Since I’ve shot 719, and high 600’s. I’m a 215 book average house bowler. Since I’ve bought this ball I have used in all 3 leagues this summer; which is two different houses and one league is a Challenge shot league. So this ball has preformed on all different lane conditions very well. All I’ve done is move my feet and control my speed. I’m a stroker and usually throw 16.7 to 17.2 mph. This ball I have better control and have been able to lower speed a little and let the ball work. I shoot around 7-9 board all the time and just move feet. Ball has a beautiful snap just at the end which I was missing. I buy new balls all the time like 10-12 a year. I usually take 4 balls in with me and with this ball I’m ready for a single bag. But I do still like the 30th anniversary ball for my 7 pins! I highly recommend this ball as I’ve had a lot of my fellow bowlers already go buy one. Storm bowling I’m a good guy to test your equipment hint hint. Love Storm Bowling!

Great Addition
I am a former YABA State Qualifier, and after 15 years, I decided to return to the sport. I waited for the release of the !Q Emerald Tour, and I am grateful I did! The ball is very balanced with smooth transitions. I also appreciate the versatility of this ball. I am able to throw this ball inside or outside depending on the oil of the lane. The 2nd day I had it I was involved in a scratch NoTap Tourney and I threw a Perfect NoTap 300, only four frames had NoTap 9's. Ball smells nice, looks nice, feels nice, and carries nice. From Saint Cloud, Minnesota I recommend you give this ball a try. You will love it! #StormNation

Storm IQ Tour Emerald!
Hey everyone, this is Storm amateur staffer and turbo regional staffer Josh Shoemaker here with another ball review for the brand new Storm IQ tour emerald. Before we begin, I want to thank Storm and Turbo for providing me with all the equipment I use every time I step on the lanes, and the Facebook page Storm and Rotogrip Bowling Balls for Sale for providing me with a platform to promote all of this great equipment. I recently decided to switch to 16lbs, so both balls featured in this video are indeed 16. Anything with the IQ name has been a staple in the storm line for years now. With how popular the IQ tour pearl was, it’s only fitting that storm brought back the same ball with an updated color. The emerald features the same R2S pearl cover as the original, as well as the same centripetal core. For this video, I decided to bowl on a house shot after a couple of league sets had been bowled. These lower friction balls love when the track is beat up a little bit, so you have a little room to throw them to. The emerald breezes through the heads and offers a firm but defined motion off the end of the pattern. I decided to venture off my usual layout for this ball, because of how similar it was to the gold ball. I was not a big fan of the original, so I put a stronger and slower response layout this time around. With the color change and layout tweak, I can pretty visibly see a difference from the original. The emerald fits right in between the original gold ball, and the tour 30. I can see myself using the emerald a ton on house shots, or towards the end of longer tournament blocks once the track area has developed. When compared to the hyroad, the emerald is a zone longer and a few boards less overall. Be sure to stop in to your local storm vip pro shop and preorder your very own today!
