Roto Grip Dare Devil Trick

Was very happy to hear about this ball when it was announced. I really loved the Disturbed and from what I heard this was going to be close if not better and knowing how much I like the Haywire I was really excited.  I drilled mine 55 x 4 3/4 x 35. As I had hoped I found it to be a lot like my Disturbeds but to me this ball had a touch more backend.  This ball will be a league bowlers and tournament bowlers bench mark ball.  I find this is the first ball out of my bag.  This ball as usual is a beast at the pins.  Just another great piece from Roto Grip.

Storm Timeless

This was probably one of the most hyped balls by Storm in a very long time.  I drilled mine 55 x 5 x 45. What I saw with this ball was how the core really took over in the midlane. I find this ball is pretty clean in the front but man does it react to the midlane and continues in the back like a monster. I have to open my angles up a fair amount and use this ball as a later ball in league or tournaments.  As usual with storm this ball is a monster when it hits the pins. This ball holds up to all the hype.  This ball is a must.

Storm Torrent

I was pretty excited to get this ball. I drilled mine 45 x 4 1/2 x 40 with a small hole down. I really liked my Rocket Ship which for me is kind of an amped up IQ Tour. So I was hoping this ball would start up a little earlier and be a pinch smoother.  This ball did exactly what I had hoped it would do.  Nice good midlane read and a very controlled backend. I am able to keep my angles a little more closed down with this ball. This ball compliments the Rocket Ship perfectly.  One added bonus is this ball really hits hard.

Roto Grip Hustle R/I/G

I drilled my Hustle R/I/G just like my Wreck Em 55 x 5 x 50 hoping these 2 balls would be a nice compiment of each other. It was exactly what I was hoping for.  This is not a ball that I wanted to get big open angles on the lane like I can with my No Rules Pearl or Wreck Em. For me this ball fit perfect as the fronts started to hook this ball gets thru that with ease and doesnt over read the friction and had great hitting power thru the pins. I feel this ball is a must for tournament bowlers for later in the day when the lanes get toasty. Another great piece from Roto Grip.

OWN IT

Roto Grip Wreck Em

I drilled my Wreck Em 55 x 5 x 50. I bowl in a second shift league that I thought this ball would work well in and man was I right. I usually get away with a Dare Devil for about a game when the lanes start to really get hooky. This is when I can pull out  the Wreck Em and use the easy length that is ball gives with a nice move of the back end.  I was very pleased with the power it went thru the pins also. This ball gave me an option before my Hustle which is what I needed.

Roto Grip OWN IT

Roto Grip No Rules Pearl

I drilled my No Rules Pearl 65 x 5 1/8 x 45.  This puts the pin just above my middle finger and the MB just at and to the right of my thumb.  In the past I have had trouble with asymmetrical balls reading the mids to much and not doing what  I was looking for down the lane and thru the pins.  Not the case with this ball. I was very happy how well the ball went thru the front part of the lane and didnt over read the mids for me and pretty much did exactly what I was looking for in the back ends and man does this ball hit and hit hard.  I have only used it on a house pattern so far but it has becaome one of my favorites when I have to start to open up my angles. When the pattern allows you to open up and get it to the friction give this ball a chance you will not be disappointed at all with you choice.  Roto Grip OWN IT.

Roto Grip Dare Devil

Before I write a post all I can say is this ball is the real deal. Wow.  I drilled mine 50 x 4 5/8 x 40. This ball comes out of the box at 1500 grit polish. This ball falls into Roto Grip HP3 line which for me has been a great line with the Haywire and Hywire.  Now to this ball. All I can say is if you are looking for a ball that is clean and makes a awesome move in the back end well this is the ball.  This ball does not leave anything behind and really goes thru the pins. This ball will compliment the Haywire and Hywire perfectly. Roto Grip OWN IT.

Storm Code Black

I drilled my Storm Code Black 65 x 4 13/16 x 50. This ball comes out of the box at 1500 grit polish.  What I found with this ball is how easy this ball gets thru the front part of the lane for a asymmetric ball and a pretty abrupt change of direction. After using this ball on a fresh house shot I used a 3000 grit abralon pad really soft just to help slow the back ends down a touch. This made a big difference and made this ball really come to life.  I will end up using this ball on a medium pattern or when the lanes break down a touch and I can go more left to right. Storm bowlers will love this ball.

Storm Street Fight

I drilled my Storm Street Fight 50 x 4 5/8 x 40.  This ball comes out of the box at 3000 Sheen. I used this ball on a broken down 2nd shift house shot. I was very pleased with how clean this ball was and how strong this ball was down the lane.  Most of the games I have on this ball are when the lanes go thru its first transition.  This ball will be in play for any tournament bowler or any bowler that is looking for some length and back end that is controlled.

Storm Phaze II

I drilled my Storm Phaze II 50 x 4 13/16 x 45 with a hole down. This ball comes out of the box at 3000 grit abralon.  First couple times out I used this ball on a pretty oily house pattern. I really liked how this ball seemed to really like the oil and dig in. This ball is defiantly special. Great mid lane control and great back end motion. This ball also really goes thru the pins like nothing ive seen. I have been able to use this ball on a few longer sport pattern with a surface change and find this ball very useful on sport patterns.  This ball is a tournament and league bowlers dream.
