The ultimate search for hyperdeformation (HD) at high spins with the EUROBALL spectrometer was performed for 126Ba as a hyper long (HLHD) experiment. The DIAMANT ancillary detector was used to tag γ-rays in coincidence with the emitted light charged particles. Using γ-energy correlation methods, the particle-zn-γ data have been analysed to search for hyperdeformed structures in the corresponding residual nuclei. Data in coincidence with one a particle indicate the presence of normal deformed collective bands up to very high spins and the possible occurrence of HD-like ridge structures in 122Xe.
