Hustle P-R-O
« on: June 15, 2016, 04:26:14 PM »
Ball NPS Score: 100.00
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 P-R-O was designed to be different. This ball takes a low RG core and combines it with the Stoked Hybrid Reactive coverstock to create a different reaction. The Stoked Hybrid coverstock was designed with more mid-lane control in mind on lighter oil conditions by providing earlier traction and control at the breakpoint.

Color: Purple/Raspberry Solid/Orange Pearl All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown.
Coverstock: Stoked Hybrid 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: Medium/Light to Light Oil

Roto Grip Hustle P/R/O ball review:
Layout: 50x4x70
Coverstock: Hybrid – 2 parts solid and 1 part pearl
Core: the new HUSTLE core
Finish: 1500 grit with polish
Low to Mid flare potential
Lane details: HPL with Flex machine 44ft Kegel pattern with Fire and Ice oil
Results: Comparing to the Loco Solid that was released last year, the Hustle goes a little longer down the lane before any reaction occurs, but the entry is almost identical to how the Loco Solid entered the pocket for me. Unlike the Loco Solid, if I did square up and went up the boards a little straighter, it did not have an earlier reaction like the Loco, which is nice considering that are lanes surface is quite “gritty” and tends to read earlier the SPL and newer HPL. Great THS ball for the money and also for shorter patterns like the new KEGEL destination patterns.

Roto Grip Hustle P-R-O Review by Casey Murphy
« Reply #2 on: July 11, 2016, 10:25:23 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:  55, 4 ¾, 40

The Hustle PRO is a reinvention of the HP1 line!  The cover is beefed up versus the Locos.  And the core is much more high performance than expected.  For the price point this ball rolls great!  It’s plenty early and catches a mid lane roll  you wouldn’t believe.  Sometimes other HP1 balls from Roto Grip just kept going for me.  It seemed like they never hooked before they got to the end of the pattern.  This isn’t the case with the Hustle.  It picks up and it hooks.  For the price, you’re not going to beat the Hustle PRO.

Bowler: Keven Williams
Hand: Left
Speed: 18.5mph
Rev Rate: 450rpm
Oil Pattern: Typical House Shot

The Roto Grip Hustle PRO is bringing a new weapon to Roto Grips HP1 Line. The Hustle is a step up from the previous HP1 ball the Locos and hooks like no other low end ball on the market. The Hustle PRO gets into a great mid lane roll and continuous through the pins. Sometimes the lower end balls never seem to want to read the pattern but the Hustles have no problem with that! The Hustle PRO is a great ball for its price range.

Hustle PRO Review by Luke Rosdahl
« Reply #4 on: August 23, 2016, 06:21:50 PM »
The Hustle PRO, which uses the Stoked Hybrid cover (2 parts solid, 1 part pearl), is the slightly earlier, slightly more aggressive, and slightly smoother of the two Hustles.  I feel like both of these balls are much better once you touch up the cover, as strong as the cores are for this line of ball, the box surface seems to make them a little inconsistent on the backend.  I'd recommend 1000 abralon, then lightly reapplying the polish.  These balls represent a brand new shape to the light oil ball category, they offer the hard arc, control, and continuation of heavier oil balls, but for lighter conditions.  The vast majority of light oil balls have weak cores, which can make them too sharp at the breakpoint, or too sensitive to carrydown.  The 2.53 rg and .030 diff of the Hustle core gives you a heavier roll, which translates to greater control both on the lane and at the pocket, resulting in a wider pocket and better pin carry.

Likes:  Strong backend reaction.  Reads the mid lane real well.  Handles heavier oil
Dislikes: none
The Roto Grip Hustle PRO is the sister to the Hustle SAY in Roto Grips HP1 line.  The PRO is covered with the 1500 grit Hybrid Cover called the Stoked.  The new Stoked Cover is 2 parts solid and 1 part pearl which is the opposite of the Hustle Say.  This gives the ball a much smoother reaction.  The PRO also boasts the new Hustle Core.
I drilled my Hustle Pro with a 45x5x60 layout.  This gave me a nice pin below the ring finger layout which gets the ball into a roll earlier compared to my Hustle Say.  I wanted to try something like that on a weaker ball to see how it would handle on walled up house shots.  Because of the 2 part solid in the cover, the PRO handles oil better than the Say.  The pin down layout makes the ball roll in the mid lane earlier which allows the ball to handle the extreme walled house shot better.  The ball is also strong enough to recover on the lane when I miss right.  It’s a pretty good compliment to the Hustle Say but alone it is also great.
I recommend this ball for anyone looking for a good solid beginner ball who wants to learn how to hook the ball.  The balls overall strength allows a bowler to grow with the ball.  I also recommend it for dry to medium lanes where there might be a little more oil that the Hustle SAY can’t handle.  Together they make a great 1.2 punch.

Roto Grip Hustle (P/R/O) Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

The newest addition to the Roto Grip HP1 line is the Hustle (P/R/O). To make you aware, the SAY stands for Purple, Raspberry Solid, and Orange. These were released in early summer this year and pack a nice punch! The Hustle PRO is in the HP1 line but could easily fit in the HP2 line from a performance standpoint. I’d encourage anyone just starting to get competitive in bowling to drill either a Hustle SAY or Hustle PRO as an entry level ball, or someone who is looking for a ball for drier lanes that needs something when there’s a lot of friction.

The biggest difference I’ve noticed between the Hustle SAY and Hustle PRO is the PRO has a solid coverstock, versus the SAY which has a pearl coverstock. This creates an earlier, smoother, more predictable motion down lane. I’ve noticed all types of players use both the SAY and the PRO. The high rev guys are able to use them late in blocks when the lanes really start to hook, kids have used them as entry level balls, and even older folks have used them to keep the ball in front of them and shut down their angles.

If you are looking for a ball for dry lanes, something to shut your angles down and keep it in front of you, or perhaps an entry level ball, the Hustle (P/R/O) is a great ball to drill! #OwnIt

I drilled the Hustle P/R/O up with a standard pin over the ring finger layout. I touched the surface lightly with a 4000 pad to get some of the skid under control.

This one works for me when I want to keep my angles shut down on higher friction surfaces or on shorter patterns.

This is not a stand left and wheel it back from the right ball. This is a great step up for first time reactive buyers and also for slower speed players needing some help from the ball to get it downlane.
