Roto Grip No Rules Pearl

Layout: pin below the bridge with the mass bias an inch and half to the right of thumb,oob

Condition: 40 ft house on hpl

I drilled this ball wanting to compliment my no rules of course.  This ball is very clean through the heads and is strong off the dry and explodes through the pins. I was able to move into the oil and had no problem getting to the pocket and still kicked out the corner pins with ease. The layout I put on this ball allows me to get a strong roll in the oil without an over reaction and strong hitting power. The shelf appeal on this ball is beautiful. A nice green, black and silver scheme that is just eye catching. This is another hit from Roto Grip, it releases on January 10th.  Get out and see your local pro shop operator and pick one up, you won't be disappointed. If your in the Evansville,IN area go out see Nick Austin at the The Bowling Place, he will take care of all your bowling needs.

The new HP4 release is the No Rules Pearl. This ball is the perfect compliment to the original No Rules, it's longer down lane and has twice as much angle. If you're bowling and the track starts to burn on you, grab the pearl, move left and let her rip. We drilled up a few in my shop for our Roto-Heads and the feed back has been great. It plays well on fresh as long as you get the ball some friction...I'm slightly speed dominant and have low axis tilt, my asymmetric equipment tends to burn up a bit quick, so I put a 70x5x40 layout on my NP Pearl. I did not have a nice look on my first game during league, so I bagged the pearl until the track opened up a bit. Once I had more miss room right, this new rock shined! I tossed some horrible shots, this ball came back screaming and scattered pins with ease. I know we are all familiar with the "this ain't coming back..." shot, trust me, it gets back! If you have a spot in your bag for a new pearl asymm. or a customer that loves to rev it up and get it right....this is the ball to drill! Thanks for reading and good luck on the lanes. #rotogrip #ownit

LANE CONDITION

Length: 41 ft

Volume:Med

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS

RG: 2.51 Differential: 0.053
Core: Chaotic
Coverstock: Amped Pearl Reactive
Finish: 1500-grit Polished

Me:
Right-Handed Tweener
Speed: 12-13 mph
Rev Rate: 315
PAP: 4 7/8 Right 3/8 Up

Ball Layout: Pin In Ring 45 X 4 1/2 X 45


I decided to drill my No Rules Pearl strong. With my lower ball speed I often like using stronger Pearl balls on fresh oil in med volume houses. The No Rules Pearl definitely didn't disappoint. I saw the same great reaction I enjoy from the Original No Rules on higher volumes.

The ball picks it's roll up in the midlane and continues very well through the back-end with the stronger layout. It should be noted that this is not typical of the ball itself, it is the result of the layout I chose for the ball and my low ball speed. That being said, the No Rules Pearl's strong core creates hook even before the lanes break down and the cleaner cover allows me to stick with the ball for longer. Having the ball remain useful longer is a big plus for me. The fact that the No Rules Pearl goes through the pins well from whatever angle I need to play with it makes this ball easily the best I've drilled for this purpose.

I've witnessed balls with less aggressive layouts thrown by people with more standard ball speed. They are clean and aggressive in the backend. The thing that stands out to me the most is that the No Rules Pearl is so driller friendly. Whatever layout you choose for the ball, it seems to perform very well.

Ball: No Rules Pearl
Layout: 50 x 4 x 50
Finish: 1500 grit polish
Test patterns: 41ft THS and 37ft sport pattern
Reaction: Not my typical Asym ball reaction. I usually struggle to match up with Pearls with pin up or pin thru my ring finger. But in this case I listen to my good friends at Bowlers Supply and decided to try a mid length pin and conservative back angle. For me this ball went longer and less angular on both patterns then my Dare Devil with pin up. When I see my Dare Devil starting to hook a little earlier off of the pattern, my next move is to the NRP without any movement. Its longer and stronger but less of an angle into the pocket, which is something I have been working on thanks to Brad Angelo’s helpful tips last fall. This ball reminds me a lot of the Totally Defiant and the Mutant Cell Pearl, strong but not super angular and not super aggressive. Great THS ball for people bowling on HPL or older SPL. Sport pattern length best used on was 37ft to 44ft patterns. First ball out of the bag when I bowl anywhere outside of my home center…

Oh Baby!!! Another beast produced by Roto Grip! If you want a ball that is strong and continuous this is the ball to get your hands on. This asymmetrical peralized version of the original No Rules gets super clean through the front yet picks up in the back end and does not stop hooking. I have been using this on sport patterns around games 3 and on and this ball has been perfect. I did remove the polish to blend out the patterns a little bit better. Definitely one of my favorite balls in my arsenal right now.

The new HP4 release is the No Rules Pearl. The No Rules Pearl is drilled to compliment my No Rules solid. It is a lot cleaner through the fronts and is strong off of the dry with a strong continuous movement through the pins. The No Rules Pearl is so strong that I could keep moving left and had no problem kicking the corner pins to the middle. On a house shot I kept getting rewarded for most all questionable shots. The longer I kept the No Rules Pearl in the oil, the stronger the down lane motion was, if I didn't send it out to the dry it would hold pocket and put ten in the pit. For a big ball Pearl this No Rules Pearl doesn't over react but it really reads the mid lane very well. With all Roto Grip and Storm equipment, they take to the smallest surface adjustments, then it's like having a different ball with each adjustment. Another great rolling and hitting ball with great looks. Great ball for all types of bowlers.

Roto Grip No Rules Pearl Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

The new Roto Grip No Rules Pearl is a perfect compliment to the original No Rules.  By keeping the same engine in both balls, but changing the cover to a pearl, the No Rules Pearl is a perfect addition to the Roto Grip line.  As expected, the pearl cover creates more push through the front part of the lane and speeds up the response time when it sees friction.

I’ve drilled two No Rules pearls so far.  The first one is mapped out as: 5 x 4 ½ x 75. This puts the pin above my bridge and the mass bias just to the right of my thumb. I’ve been able to use this one on house conditions and sport patterns when the pattern blends out.  The layout and cover both create more length and a quicker response time than the first No Rules.

The second one is mapped out as 5 ½ x 4 x 35.  I also brought the surface down to 1000 with this one.  This one reads the lane much earlier because of the stronger mass bias as well as the surface.  I’ve been able to use this one more on sport patterns because of how much earlier it picks up.

The No Rules Pearl has become a favorite in my bag and it goes everywhere.  Go drill one of the best balls on the market today!

LANE CONDITION

Length: Various Lengths

Volume: Various Volumes

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): Assorted


The RotoGrip NO Rules Pearl is the newest addition the HP4 line of bowling balls.  The NO Rules Pearl features the Chaotic Core which is also in the No Rules.  The difference is the AMPED Pearl coverstock that provides skid through the front part of the lane and a devastating hooking motion on the backend.  The layout I used on the NO Rules Pearl was pin in the ring finger with no extra hole.  I believe the coordinates for the dual angle are 50 X 5 X 50 and that is off my PAP which is 5 5/8 over and 5/8 up. 
I was able to compare a RotoGrip Skid and The NO Rules Pearl on a couple of different conditions to see what the main differences were.  I used the same layout with a RotoGrip Skid and it provided decent length with a controllable backend motion.  What I noticed immediately was that the NO Rules Pearl was easily 5 boards more hook and slightly earlier.  However, the biggest difference was in the backend motion…  The NO Rules Pearl was more violent and powerful than the Skid.  This powerful motion helps when moving left and going around the pattern as it breaks down or carries down especially on a house pattern.  However, this powerful motion could cause severe wet dry because you have to play so much area.  I believe with a surface adjustment the NO Rules Pearl could become more versatile and readable.  The NO Rules Pearl will make its way into my bowling bag for the occasions when more is better! 

The NO Rules Pearl is the go long hooks hard and hits like truck bowling ball!

The NO Rules Pearl lives up to the hype!  I drilled mine 50/4/40.  This asymetric ball not only looks great with the green and silver swirl, but it hits amazing.  I have used it on house shots, tournament shots and I have been able to keep my angles tight or open the lane right up depending on the condition.  My RPM are about 375 and this ball goes left at the break point.  It never seems to lose much energy even when the lanes dry up. With the pearl coverstock it gets through the heads no problem.  The carry and power it delivers is one of the strongest asym balls I have thrown. You need the ball to set up earlier, just stay behind it a little more and watch the reaction change. Its my go to ball when I lose consistency on the pattern with other balls. I find it is a ball where hand position and what you want to do with it, the ball reacts on demand. I ordered another one of these balls because hitting power like this is hard to beat.  Must have ball!

No Rules Pearl is the newest ball in Roto Grip's HP4 line.  This is the most aggressive pearl ball I've ever thrown.  It hooks continuously throughout the lane, it has a very strong arc, it is a GREAT ball to use from deeper angles on heavier volume patterns once the transition has forced you inside.  It rolls heavy enough and has enough traction that you can project it or fade it through the soup in the middle knowing it's going to pull up and make a STRONG move through the pins.  It's just a strong ball in all phases of motion, but the surface finish gets it down the lane without bleeding energy.  It's quick off friction, but it doesn't burn or stand up.  It also doesn't need the shine taken off to compete on sport patterns, in fact it's better with the factory polish on it.  This is one of my personal favorites at the moment, it's very easy to throw with confidence.

Roto Grip No Rules Pearl Review by Casey Murphy
« Reply #13 on: March 06, 2017, 03:55:14 PM »
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:  40, 5 7/8, 40

The No Rules Pearl is exactly what you would expect a pearl version of the No Rules to be.  It gets down the lane a lot easier than the No Rules and backend a good deal more.  As with the No Rules, you see a lot of backend continuation for an Asymmetrical.  The No Rules Pearl creates a lot of midlane roll because of the core, and then you see a strong continuous motion on the back.  It’s the perfect ball for those looking for a slightly cleaner version of the No Rules.

The No Rules Pearl is the follow up pearlized version of the No Rules in the HP4 line of balls from Roto Grip. The pearl cover called Amped has an attractive onyx/neon green/silver color combination and is finished to a 1500 grit polish. This cover change from the micro DNA on the solid, creates a reaction more suited for medium oiled lane conditions. The No Rules pearl uses the same Chaotic core found in the solid version, which has an RG of 2.51, a differential of .053, and an intermediate differential of 0.018, in 15lb bowling balls.

I drilled the No Rules Pearl 4 x 5 ¾ x 2 ¾. I choose this layout mainly to maximize mistake room and generate a large amount of flare when bowling on high scoring league conditions. The first time using the ball subbing on a 39 foot high scoring house pattern, I shot games of 300, 245, 300 for 845. I would say that I succeeded in picking the proper layout for the conditions and ball. The No Rules pearl gives me good length, with a controllable change of direction at the breakpoint. Comparing  the No Rules pearl to my Dare Devil (both balls using the new Amped cover) with a layout of 4 ¾ x 5 ¼ x 2 ½ on the Dare Devil; the No Rules has a slightly later read of the midlane, and has a more defined change of direction, and roll toward the pocket than the Dare Devil. As I remember some of the shapes that some older equipment made throughout the years, the No Rules pearl reminds me most of my Gravity Shift, in that both balls seemed to be easy to get through the heads and to the breakpoint, but didn’t over react once hitting the dry part of the lane, as sometimes pearl balls do for me. I’ve used the No Rules Pearl on a few different house patterns so far, all with good success. I seem to be able to chase the pattern in on the lane, as the oil breaks down, or go a little straighter and bump the wall on tighter typical league conditions.

I really like the combination of cover and core with the No Rules pearl. Also, Roto Grip is really on to something with this pearl Amped cover, as both the No Rules pearl and the Dare Devil rolls great for me. Thank you for taking the time to read my review of the No Rules pearl by Roto Grip.
