Hustle Ink
ę on: July 18, 2017, 04:11:23 PM Ľ
Ball NPS Score: Not Available
In sports we are always told to hustle well now Roto Grip is providing a ball that will do just that on the lanes. The Roto Grip Hustle Ink was designed to be different. This ball takes a low RG core and low differential to create a ball that will rev up faster but also offer more control down lane. The Thrilled Solid Reactive coverstock is perfect for light oil conditions where over-hooking can occur with more aggressive bowling balls.

Color: Ink Blue
Coverstock: Thrilled Solid Reactive
Core: Hustle (14#-16#) (Lightbulb core for 13# & 12# and a puck core for 11# & 10#)
Ball Finish: 1500-grit Polished
RG: 2.53 (15# ball)
Differential: 0.030 (15# ball)
Recommended Lane Condition: Light Oil

Hustle Ink Review by Luke Rosdahl

I truly canít say enough about this ball.  I try to stay as objective as possible when reviewing a ball, but I feel saying this is one of the best balls Iíve ever thrown IS objective.  All the buzz words apply here, easy length, good control, very clean reaction, consistent, and itís continuous through the pins.  The Hustle Ink fits best on medium conditions, itís a bit strong for true light conditions, but will handle anything from light-medium to the heavy side of medium.  This is that perfect normal house shot type reaction, it doesnít transition the lanes quickly due to the surface, itís not significantly affected by carrydown or track burn, and itís very comfortable to throw.  For me, this is Hyroad level performance.  Itís great on a number of conditions, not to mention with it being a solid, it will be very responsive to cover adjustments and should do extremely well on short to medium sport patterns of all difficulties.  Iím shamelessly recommending this one, the performance to price ratio is extremely favorable and the reaction is exceptional.

After completely burning out the lanes with the No Rules Exist and Show Off it was time to drop to a low performance symmetrical bowling ball, the Hustle INK. I finished on board 36 with the Show Off and I was able to instantly move 10 boards right with the new Hustle INK. The polish allowed it to get clean through the heads and it provided a smooth transition off the break point. This ball will provide bowlers of all skill levels versatility pending when they need this type of look. I could see myself using this on a house shot after game 2 or late in a squad on a sport pattern after game 6. For those who threw the original Hustle, the INK will read the lane sooner, due to it's dull coverstock, and provide a discernable smoother motion.

Introducing the NEW Hustle Ink from Roto Grip.. The Hustle Ink adds a solid addition to the HP-1 Line. It has the same Hustle core as the other Hustles but with a new solid reactive coverstock, Thrilled. It has a medium RG with a Medium-Low differential. This ball with the core and cover combination clears right though the heads and starts to roll up in the Mid-Lanes while maintaining a smooth and continuous backend motion.
I drilled mines with a 45į x 5″ x 35į ďplacing the pin up with cg kicked out.Ē I love the motion on the Hustle Ink. It is currently one of my favorites pieces in my arsenal. Its very versatile and can combat multiple lane conditions. It comes out of box at 1500 polished, but you can surface it down to help combat heavier volume patterns. The Hustle Ink is  like a step down from an IQ Tour. The difference being the Hustle Ink will go a little longer than the IQ Tour and will have a more flippy backend. Compared to the other Hustles currently in line, this will be the smoothest, earliest, and most controlling of them.
This ball has a hook rating of a 6.5/10 in my opinion.
You donít want to miss this ball. It is AMAZING!!! Check out my video below to see the reaction!!
