This bowling ball is finished with a 1500-grit factory polish and is best used on medium to medium/heavy oil conditions. Go ahead and break the rules with the Roto Grip No Rules Pearl!

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

No Rules Pearl review by Lonnie Pemberton
« Reply #4 on: January 26, 2017, 04:00:38 PM »

Length: 41 ft


Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS

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

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.

Type (THS

                                                        No Rules Pearl

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.
