Lost a ball, looking to replace. . .

Post by boomer » April 6th, 2021, 9:28 pm

So my Crux (original) was a casualty so my wife told me to buy a new ball . . . I have an original IQ Tour Pearl, polished, and a Marvel S, sanded to 1000 right now. Well, and a White Dot but does that count? LOL

I was looking at the Hy-Road Max.

I'd like something that will read mid - not early, not late.

Any thoughts?

That’s a lot of symmetricals, I’d say Rubicon or Omega Crux

The original Crux was a pretty strong ball. Of course, it depends on how it was drilled. I agree on the Rubicon, very versatile ball, very smooth, seems to fit most styles. The RST would be interesting, it is aggressive kind of like a Crux.

Yeah, I would think either the Rubicon, RST or Reality would be a good replacement for the Crux.

ok, so how about changing the question. Instead of straight up replacing the Crux, what would make a good complement to the IQTP and Marvel S?

For a house shot, I like the Nuclear Cell. Tournament I would want something not as Jumpy on the backend
