Hopefully, you will be able to get an idea of how the ball is going to perform. I will include a video whenever possible. I know I like to see what kind of shape the ball has and how hard it hooks.

The Latest Roto Grip New Releases – 2022

Roto Grip Hustle USA – Released 7/08/22 – FREE SHIPPING

The Hustle symmetric core, which has become well-known due to earlier Hustle line releases, has a medium RG/low differential, which makes it the ideal mix for a regulated backend reaction.

The Hustle USA will shake, rattle, and roll through mild to medium lane conditions thanks to its VTC Hybrid reactive coverstock that has been finished at 3000-Grit. This Combination provides control without being unduly aggressive.

Here is what Roto Grip has to say about the Hustle USA:

Looking for your first “hook ball”? – The Hustle Line has you covered… Needing a ball for those Light to Medium oil patterns in your arsenal? – The Hustle Line has you covered… On a budget? – The Hustle Line has your covered… This ENTIRE series of balls outperforms any other options in this price point on the market today.

Roto Grip Hyped Solid – Released 8/19/22 – FREE SHIPPING

Meet the newest addition to Roto Grip’s HP2 performance range. The “Hyped” symmetric core of the Hyped offers slightly more motion than the Hustles but not nearly as much motion as the HP3 line. The ideal “in-between” situation.

This ball, which is finished at 3000-Grit and is wrapped in the VTC solid reactive coverstock, will offer a clear, reliable read in a variety of medium-conditions.

Here is what Roto Grip has to say about Hyped Solid:

Following the footsteps of the versions before it, the HYPED SOLID is here to compliment the HP2 Line of balls. Its VTC™ (Versatile Traction Control) Solid coverstock will provide earlier traction on the lane than previous versions making it ideal for just a little more oil, or, making it the perfect ball when the friction down lane seems unmanageable and you need more overall control. This ball definitely takes VERSATILITY to the MAX! So if you weren’t already excited, now is the time you should get HYPED!

Roto Grip RST X-3 – Released 8/19/22 – FREE SHIPPING

Roto Grip is pleased to introduce the RST X-3, their most recent product. Given the success of the first two releases in this line, there is no doubt that the third release will be equally outstanding.

The RST core (Roto Star Tour Core) inside will offer the greatest amount of continuous motion downlane with the least amount of deflection at the pocket.

RST X-3 powers through medium to heavy lanes and offers a strong overall ball motion for bowlers of any skill level. It is wrapped in the MicroTrax Hybrid reactive coverstock and finished at 4K Fast factory finish. The secret of RST X-3 is consistency.

Here’s what Roto Grip has to say about RST X-3:

Formulated for ALL bowlers regardless of their style or their skill level. The latest installment in the RST Series provides WAY more mid-lane motion than the RST X-2, while still providing PLENTY of giddy up down lane. This version of MicroTrax™ Hybrid features nano particles throughout to provide the traction you need in oil, while its two parts pearl provide you the reaction you have come to know and love about the RST Series. So, whether you are a recent PBA Hall of Famer, or this is your very first high-end ball, the RST X-3 will provide unparalleled reaction time and time again.

Roto Grip Idol Cosmos – Released 7/08/22 – FREE SHIPPING

The Idol Cosmos is the latest addition to the Roto Grip Idol Line. Idol Cosmos is covered in sparkling stardust teal XtremeTrax Pearl reactive coverstock. Sporting a finish at 4000-grit Abralon, It will tackle medium to heavy lane conditions with high flaring, “break-neck” motion.

The engine inside is the low RG Ikon symmetric core. You can expect it will produce that same angularity you’ve come to know and love from the Idol line.

Here is what Roto Grip has to say about Idol Cosmos:

Due to the overwhelming success and popularity of the IDOL™ Helios, we felt that creating a pearlized version using the same coverstock chemistry was an absolute must that bowlers around the globe needed. So, the Research & Development Team went to work adjusting formulas and testing the different variations of the XtremeTrax™ coverstock material in a pearlized form. All we can say is WOW, we impressed ourselves which means you will be impressed as well. Our sole focus was to create an option that compliments the IDOL Helios, meaning just a bit cleaner through the front of the lane while providing more motion and reaction down lane. Needless to say, we not only hit this one out of the park, but we also hit it into another galaxy!

Sometimes evolution can spark new life into technology from yesteryear. Such is the case with our latest introduction to the HP4 line of balls.

  1. Im liking the gem for heavy to medium oil as my primary but i was wondering what would be a good dry lane ball and mid range. I like to have 3 balls to cover a range. I love atorm balls and loved my crux so im hoping 2022 will have great balls. Im also thinking of going with roto grip type but need asemetricial too. Can you give me any advice? Thanks.

    • Hi Shane,
      It really is up to you. On dry lanes, the symmetrical balls perform well for me. I don’t really have a dry lane ball. Currently, I bowl on medium-dry lanes, so I just move left, throw right on the dry stuff, with my asymmetrical balls. I currently use the Global Altered Reality, Storm Parallax Effect, and the Roto Grip RST-X2. Both the Reality and Parallax effect are too much for the dry conditions.

      The X2 was really a wicked hockey stick motion out of the box, I hit it with 2000 Abralon, and polished it. That tamed it down to where I can use it on drier conditions. But, you don’t need a high end ball for dry lanes.

      I have the older Retired Hustle Ink, that works great on dry lanes. It’s a symmetrical, and I line up my feet with the center dot, and throw 14 board. works great. It is a solid, but after throwing the pearl reactive balls, I think they would be good also.
      Maybe something like the Hustle Wine would be good for dry lanes. It is similar to the Ink, but is a Pearl Reactive. My X2 is pearl reactive too, but a little surface tamed it right down!
      You could try that out of the box, It should be a lot less hokey stick motion, more like a controlled arc with good backend, similar to the Hustle ink. If you need to, hit it with 2000 and polish it. It is 1500 grit polished out of the box. I would try that first, get about 20 games on it. If it is still to much, go to 2000 with polish.
      At $89 bucks, it a lot of bang for the buck! The Hustle is a good ball. That’s my best idea for you!
      Good Luck and good bowling!
