Hustle R-I-G
on: December 09, 2016, 05:38:06 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 R-I-G was designed to be different. This ball takes a low RG core and combines it with the Pumped Pearl Reactive coverstock to produce a ball that gets down the lane when facing light oil conditions while still offering a break on the backend.

Color: Red/Indigo/Gold Pearl
Coverstock: Pumped Pearl
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

I drilled The Hustle POW and Hustle RIG to compliment my Hustle SAY/PRO's that I have. The POW was 75* x 5 x 35 while the RIG was 50 x 5 x 60 (pin in the ring finger). Both layouts compliment each other very well with the POW getting started later but in a stronger move than the RIG. The RIG is smoother and just a little earlier in it's motion off the back. I would recommend either the POW or RIG if you need more length than your SAY/PRO are giving you. These make great short length or lower volume pattern balls.

Roto Grip Hustle RIG Review by Casey Murphy
Reply #2 on: December 22, 2016, 11:14:11 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, 6   , 35

The Hustle POW and Hustle RIG are the new pearl versions of the Hustle series.  When compared the Hustle SAY/PRO, the POW/RIG are much cleaner and backend quite a bit more.  They are super clean in the fronts and really go sideways off the dry!  If you loved your Hustle SAY/PRO but wanted something just a little cleaner with more recovery, look no further than the Hustle POW/RIG!

Roto Grip Hustle RIG

Layout : pin above bridge, cg in line with the pin.

Condition: 39 ft THS old guardian surface.

In drilling this ball I was looking for something with length and could control the pattern and not be to snappy. This ball lived up to my expectations.  While the lanes were fresh all I needed to donwas send the ball left and it just walked back to the pocket. As the set progressed and the oil pushed down I was able to to move a couple boards right with my feet and lay down spot and never missed a beat. I highly recommend this ball for a drier lane condition or an introductory ball.  This ball has good shelf appeal and is available now.  Go out and see your local pro shop professional today or if your in the Evansville,IN area visit Nick Austin at The Bowling Place for all your bowling needs.

Hustle R-I-G review - Mark Tarkington
Reply #4 on: March 14, 2017, 03:20:38 PM
Right Handed
Ball weight:  15
Rev Rate:  400
Ball Speed:  17.3
Axis Tilt:  7
Axis Rotation:  45*
PAP:  3 3/4 horizontal, 7/8 up
Layout:  40 x 3 x 40

This is my favorite Hustle to date.

Ive been able to bail out a few sets with this ball, when the lanes get unexpectedly funky.

If our house pattern ends up with too much oil towards the outside, Ive been quite successful using the RIG to play between 5-10 with a little bounce and keeping the pocket the whole night.  Normally, I cant stay that far right on a THS, but when ours gets this way, I will either use a Pitch Black (and Im not a urethane guy) or the RIG. 

The RIG doesnt roll too early and isnt as sharp as the POW, so it makes a nice smooth move that makes my life so easy on those strange pattern nights.

The RIG will be in my bag for quite a while, especially on our THS.

This is my first bowling ball. I've been bowling for about 2 years but I got this ball about 4 months ago. My bowling style is like stroker style.

I have liked this ball. Hustle RIG is an excellent ball for light oil and short patterns, like your typical house shot. It hooks very smoothly and finds the pocket easily. But it's not so good when there's a lot more oil. Our alley has recently used a different pattern, longer and heavier oil. And I've had trouble to hook the ball now. So I've been like forced to throw the ball quite straight. I only get a very small turn in the end.

So, it's a very good ball, but it's not made for the heavier oil patterns. Great for light oil and short patterns.
