The Storm !Q Tour Pearl aka there Goldie Ball is one of the most sought after bowling balls in the world and because of that its also the most expensive! I drilled it so you don't have to!
I feel like I should be shooting this video in like a suit on or something, like something special. So guys on today’s video I’m going to be throwing the most expensive bowling ball that I could find and I’m doing it so that you don’t have to.
This bowling ball in front of me here is the storm IQ tour Pearl the very first Pearl IQ this is the gold ball, the one that everyone’s always asking for, the one that everyone’s always wanting. This bowling ball I have seen sell for upwards of seven hundred dollars. You can say whatever you want about no bowling ball being worth $700 or this or that but people are paying it so to them it’s worth it. I I personally I don’t think it’s worth it but if people are paying it that means that someone thinks that it’s worth it.
So this ball originally came out in December of 2012. So we’re going to talk a little bit about the tech behind this IQ tour Pearl and you’re going to hear a lot of
familiar things. It features the C3 centripetal core, stop me if you’ve heard
that before. It’s the same core that’s in every single IQ ball in 15 pounds as an RG of 2.49 and a Max differential of 0.029 so it’s a very low RG. Very smooth, very predictable core numbers and then wrapped around that is the r2s pearl coverstock. Comes out of the box at 1500 grit polish finish. How many times have we seen the r2s Pearl coverstock so this is kind of a bowling ball that started all of that, started that fad that oh my God the r2s Pearl is amazing. So we’re going to take it on the lanes here on a fresh typical house shot and we’re
going to kind of just see what it’s about, is it worth it, is it not worth it. I know that I had one back in 2012 and I loved it. I haven’t thrown one in eight or nine years so we’re gonna see if it still has that left in it and this is a brand new drilled one freshly drilled, this has never been down the lane. Let me know down below in the comments if you guys have ever had an IQ tour Pearl or if you still have an IQ tour Pearl. I think it’d be cool to see if you guys still have one or not, why or why not did you love it, did you hate it. Let me know everything in the comments.
