Dare Devil Danger
on: October 26, 2017, 04:25:47 PM
Ball NPS Score: 100.00
Ok Dare Devil, you want to bowl with some Danger? Check out this ball! Roto Grip has taken the Madcap core that was introduced in the original Dare Devil ball and combined it with the Psyched Hybrid Reactive coverstock and then finished it with a 1500 grit polish. The Madcap core has proven itself as one that offers midlane roll that continues through the pin deck unlike other symmetrical shaped cores from Roto Grip. The hybrid version of this ball is 2 parts pearl and 1 part solid and offers length through the fronts and a more consistent reaction on the backend. This ball was made for a variety of oil patterns but is best used on medium oil conditions but can be tweaked to handle more oil too. Following the success of the Dare Devil and Dare Devil Trick the Dare Devil Danger will provide a slightly different ball motion with the same pin action that will make the competition take notice.

Color: Red/Orange/Blue
Core: Madcap
Coverstock: Psyched Hybrid Reactive
Finish: 1500-grit Polished
RG: 2.48 (for 15# ball)
Differential: 0.041 (for 15# ball)
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium Oil

The New Roto Grip Dare Devil Danger is a great benchmark ball. It's one of the most even rolling predictable motions I've thrown and it more than fills the gap left by the discontinued Hywire.

The Dare Devil Danger features the Psyched Hybrid coverstock used on the Wreck-It. I loved the wreck-it on wet/dry lane conditions and this ball is great in that capacity. Especially when the fronts are a little touchier. The 1500 polished finish helps this ball get through the front a little cleaner than the 3000 finish that was featured on the wreck-it. The Madcap core that has been used in the other Dare Devil balls creates a predictable roll and matches well with the coverstock. The result is a medium strength, even rolling ball that will make though difficult conditions feel much more playable.

I tested the Dare Devil Danger on a lower ratio, higher volume pattern. There isn't much miss room right and the middle of the lane hooks. The tendency to try to throw surface to even out the downlane reaction tends to cause the front of the lane to transition very quickly and it requires constant tweaks to keep the ball in play. The Dare Devil Danger will roll where you need it to, clear the fronts and not cause the lanes to transition so quickly. It's a great first ball out of the bag as its smooth even motion very quickly helps you identify where the pattern is defined.

It's not often that a hybrid version of a ball actually fits in the exact middle of it's solid and pearl counterparts but this is definitely that ball. Roto Grip's HP3 line has featured proven performance and it keeps impressing with pieces like this one. Top to bottom theres so much versatility that there really isn't a condition you can't find a ball to match up on.

Are the lanes a bit too choppy? Lets make the switch to the Dare Devil Danger. 2 part pearl, 1 part solid will help you get through the front part of the lane cleanly and provide a controllable motion off the back end towards the pocket.

I changed the surface from the out of box finish to 2000 grit to get a smoother early rolling bowling ball. This ball will be a great step down from the Dare Devil Trick as the lanes begin to transition and you need something to get through the front part of the lane. Also, if the lanes are playing a bit tight down lane this will be a good ball to go to, to get that extra pop off the spot.

Are the lanes putting you in Danger? Make the switch to the Dare Devil Danger!

Excerpt:
The Roto Grip Dare Devil Danger looks like it will be worth its weight in gold. It really seems to fit the traditional mold of the Storm/Roto family in terms of what hybrids do. Thinking how the HyRoad, Defiant Soul, Nomad Dagger, etc. just seem better than the sum of their parts. Time will tell if it will be revered that way but so far, we like what we see.

The Dare Devil Danger has been a very polarizing ball for me.  At first glance, I wasnt a fan, it was a little too jerky on friction and a little too lazy in the oil, but once I realized it was right at home once the track had burnt some, this ball will have a solid place in my bag for a long time to come.  While it doesnt remind me much of the other two Dare Devils, it IS a very good compliment as it offers a look and shape the other two dont.  Its very similar to the Hywire, so its long and strong, though not quite as sharp.  The low rg of the core makes it rev very strong, but the medium differential keeps it from gaining too much early traction so it can save it for the backend.  In terms of hook, its right between the Trick and the original for me, but with more backend shape than either, and is absolutely lethal for me once the lanes have a few games on them and I can get inside and really open things up.

The New Roto Grip Dare Devil Danger is the Hybrid version of the original Dare Devil. It uses the Psyched Hybrid coverstock and the Madcap core that has been in all of the Dare Devils.

The one word that I think of when I see this ball roll is, control. This is a smoother shape than any hybrid in the Roto Grip or Storm lines. Like I have heard from a few others, the DD Danger reminds me of the Hywire that used to be in Roto Grips HP3 line.

Because of the low RG in the core, this ball shapes more like a solid than a hybrid or pearl. I see this ball needing some coverstock tweaks to fit perfectly for some. I hit mine with 4,000 Abralon, and smoothing out that shape just a hair more made it fit right where I needed it to in my bag. So do not be afraid to tweak this super versatile cover!

Dare Devil Danger review by Matthew Kemper

The Roto Grip Dare Devil Danger is Roto Grips newest HP3 line release.  The Danger is the Hybrid version of the Dare Devil and Dare Devil Tricked.  The Danger contains the Madcap Core and is covered with the Psyched Coverstock.  The Danger is factory finished at 1500 grit polish which give the Danger a real aggressive move down lane.  The Danger just flat out hooks.  I drilled mine stronger than my original Dare Devil and similar to my Tricked.  Its a great compliment to the Tricked because it is much longer and stronger where the Tricked was sooner and smoother.  What I like the most so far is the Danger hooks from different angles.  Im not afraid to move in with this ball because it reads the mid lane real well which still gives the ball plenty of hitting power to carry corner pins.  I think the Danger is great for medium to longer oil patterns.  I think its a great step down from a stronger solid like the Tricked or No Rules.  Its a great bench mark ball for the normal league bowler and if you dont have quite as much hand as others the ball will really help you out.

Roto Grip Dare Devil Danger Review by Casey Murphy
Reply #7 on: November 30, 2017, 11:53:11 AM
Orientation:  Right Handed
Rev Rate:  375 RPM
Speed:  16-17 MPH
PAP:  4 5/8 straight across

Location:  Enterprise Park Lanes, Springfield MO
Pattern:  High Volume THS
Layout:  45, 4    , 70

The Dare Devil Danger is the perfect blend of the original Dare Devil and Dare Devil Trick.  For me the Dare Devil tended to be a little too clean and the Trick sometimes didnt recover enough on the backend.  The Dare Devil Danger solves both of those problems.  The Solid in the cover picks up plenty early and the pearl in the cover ensures the DDD has a strong backend.  This makes the Dare Devil Danger the perfect benchmark ball for heavy oil.

Pin below bridge cg kicked out 1.5 inches.

This ball is a real gem. I was hoping for something better then the last daredevil release. I loved my original daredevil but absolutely hated the trick.  This ball allows me to play deep inside angles with plenty of recovery. I dont have any problems pulling it into the oil and either and still carrying the corners. This ball also have very good shelf appeal. This ball is available now.

Dare Devil Danger
Reply #9 on: December 01, 2017, 06:50:06 PM
Speed: 18mph
Rev Rate: 450rpm
Pattern: Typical House Shot

The Roto Grip Daredevil Danger is just what I needed to compliment my original Daredevil and Daredevil Trick! The Daredevil Danger is earlier than my original Daredevil and has a bigger motion down lane than my Daredevil Trick. The Daredevil Danger fits right in the middle on the three ball family with the Daredevil Danger being the strongest of the three. The Danger is a similar motion to the Hywire but more predictable for me. The Daredevil Danger will be a bench mark ball for many.

Orientation:  Right Handed
Rev Rate:  325 RPM
Speed:  17.5 MPH
PAP:  5.25 x 1 UP

Location:  Bunswick Harbour Lanes, Melbourne FL
Pattern:  Kegel Wall Street
Layout:  70x 4.5 x 60


The Roto-Grip Dare Devil Danger is a perfect match for me between the original Dare Devil and the Dare Devil Trick.  I really like the Madcap core so I was excited when they wrapped a hybrid coverstock around a core I feel very comfortable with.  The Danger definitely has a stronger mid lane read in comparison to the original, and has a lot more down lane pop than the Trick.  This makes the Danger a perfect compliment to the others, as it fits centered between them.

I personally found the original to be good, but I had to knock the polish off of it on most patterns to get the shape I wanted to see out of it.  Now that the Danger is out I can leave my original with some shine to it and use the Danger in that spot, giving me a great option for later in the day when I now change back to the original.

I drilled my DAREDEVIL DANGER 65 x 4.5 x 35 which is my benchmark drilling for about everything that I drill. I have thrown it box finish of 1500 reacta-shine so far but may hit it lightly with 3000 or 4000 depending on if I see it over-under at the spot. So far I like what I see and it gives me a look that reminds me of my HYWIRE's that I still pull out. Good length but smooth transition almost a strong arc at the spot. Compared to my STORM INTENSE and STORM CODE RED, this is not as strong off the point. Not enough motor compared to either ball especially the comparable hybrid CODE RED cover/motor combo. I also put this up against my original DAREDEVIL. The original for me just did not have much off the spot when the lanes had blown up to where it became the only option. The DAREDEVIL DANGER has better shape and just as much length. Put this one in your bag if you want a good shape compared to your DAREDEVIL TRICK or just slightly less than a CODE RED.
