Storm Rocket

After I heard about this ball coming out I dont think I was ever more excited about a ball than this one. Drilled it as soon as It came in. I went 50 x 4 3/4 x 40 for the layout. Kinda my favorite layout. First time using it was on a house shot. I usually start with my Optimus but I wanted to get some games on this ball to see where it might fit in my back. All I can say is this ball is really clean and really gets around the corner. First game this ball was to much backend but still found a way to shot 250. Once the lane settled down this ball was money. Very easy to read the motion. I didnt think it was supposed to be a skid flip ball but it sure looks like it to me.  I will be able to go to this ball easily after my optimus starts to get weak down the lane. By far going to be a favorite in my bag.

Roto Grip Hyper Cell Skid

I have a tendency to not dril to may asymmetric balls but do to how much I liked the Hyper Cell I went ahead and drilled the Skid. The layout I used was 55 x 4 5/8 x 40. All I can say is I am glad I went ahead and drilled this ball. Man does this ball wheel in the backend of the lane. I actually found it to be to much ball down the lane so I put a light 4000 scuff to it to help slow it down some and WOW did this ball come to life for me. Gave me the look I need when the stronger solid balls start to burn up I can make a small move in and just let it go. Most of the games I have used it on have been on house shots but I am looking forward to using this ball in tournamnets also. This is a must have ball.  Roto Grip OWN IT.

Roto Grip Unhinged

I was excited about this ball after throwing the hysteria and finding that ball to be really quick to respond to the friction. Although the Unhinged is a pearl for me it was smoother down the lane than my Hysteria.  The layout I used was 65 x 4 1/2 x 45. This ball quickly found a spot in my bag.  For me this ball is nice and clean through the front part of the lane but also has a good controlled movement down lane. I find myself using this ball when the lanes start to hook and I need to have a control of the back part of the lane.  This ball is another winner from Roto Grip.


Storm IQ Tour Nano

For me I could not wait to get this ball drilled. The IQ tour is easy one of my favorite balls ever having drilled 7 of them. I again used one of my favorite layouts 50 x 4 3/4 x 40 small hole down. This is one of the first 14 # balls that I have drilled for myself. This ball is going to be a winner. Stronger mid lane and back end motion than my IQ Solid. Great compliment ball. This is going to be my go to ball on a fresher pattern. There will be a couple more of these balls in my bag.

Roto Grip Hysteria

The layout choice for this ball was one of my favorite layouts. I went 55 x 4 5/8 x 40. What surprised me the most about this ball was how easy this ball went through the front part of the lane and then the motion it made down the lane. Very surprised for a solid covered ball. I didnt get a lot of games on this ball due to a hand injury. I have however ordered a 14 # and will be drilling it ASAP and adding to this blog. I feel from the short time I used this ball it is a must have.


Roto Grip Outcry

I again was very interested in this ball. I loved my uproar and felt like this ball was going to be a good fit for me. The layout I used for this ball was 50 x 4 3/4 x 30 small hole down. What I really liked about this ball was it didnt respond to the friction as quick as the uproar. I was able to keep this ball in front of me longer. If I needed more backend I would go to the Uproar from here. Really good control ball.


Roto Grip Sinister

I was very excited to drill this ball. The layout I used was 50 x 5 x 40. I was very impressed with how strong this ball was in the mid lane and still continued threw the back end and the pins. I have mainly used this ball on a fresher house shot. If you need a ball for oil this is a great option. ROTO GRIP OWN IT.

Storm Crux

I drilled this ball to mainly use as a tournament ball. The layout I used was 35 x 5 3/8 x 65 with a small hole down. I used it a couple of times on the fresh and I liked the motion it gave me. Strong mid lane and strong  back end.  I have since dropped to 14 pounds due to a hand injury and havent drilled a new one yet. I will update down the road.
