hustle INK
on: September 07, 2017, 03:04:09 PM
what balls in the storm umbrella does the hustle ink compare too.

I had a storm heat? I don't remember the name, low end ball. it was a great ball for me on THS first and second shift. I had to polish the solid cover and it was a ball I used for 2 seasons. My low tilt, average AR made medium ball for THS read early.

At this new house/location, I'm seeing a similar pattern and surface as the old house I've bowled in, just longer. And since the HI comes in "solid polish" oob, lower entry, big core compared to the breezes.... I thought this could be the ball I'm looking for after all. I bowl fist and second shift at this house and needing a versatile ball.

But I'm not familiar with balls in the roto grip line. In fact, I haven't been following ball companies and new releases at all. My bag is mix and over lapping, but owning a spinner is helpful - but I'm lazy.

Does a round object have sides? I say yes, pizza has triangles..

IQ Tour, and in a weaker way, the Hyroad.

In my opinion, the ink rolls like I expected my hyroad too. My hyroad is too jumpy off the dry. Iit turned into an over/under machine unless I keep it dull, which in turn made it useless for the purpose I was hoping it would serve.

The INK is strong on the back without being unpredictable, even recovering if I tug it into the oil some (which is usually an issue for me when mixing my ball speed with low end balls). I can leave polish on it and use it on fresh house shots and broken down house shots, though I like it more on the break down.

I had a Hustle PRO and hated it, but my Hustle INK with the same layout has been money. I've thrown it in 6 games of league (out of 9) so far this year, and I've had 2 300s already with the INK. I really really like it.

This ball is really good. I think it's a bit cleaner than the Huste PRO, but continues downlane better while still having predictability.

OP, I think it would fit what you're looking for very well.

I got an INK and had to knock off the polish with 4000 abralon.  Reads better without the polish for me, but I haven't had time to practice at all the last couple of weeks.  It's definitely above my Storm Ride, which is my go-to ball at the moment.

Tropical Heat came in hybrid and pearl versions. The black and purple looked more solid. The Hot line from Storm would be similar to the Hustle line from Roto Grip.

Hustle Ink is one of the best balls of the decade.  I drilled another one with a 4" pin and took it to 2000 for a tournament this past weekend and it rolled even better than the first one that I drilled that I was in love with.  This is in that very small list of balls I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone, ESPECIALLY for the price.  There are a lot of balls I could live without if they got discontinued, this one isn't one of them.  If and when it happens, I'm buying 2 cases.
