What is everyone’s favorite roto grip ball of all time?

My favorite roto grip ball of all time was the outlaw. Close second was the critical theory before it cracked on me darn it.

Seriously not too early to say Idol.  It's Hyroad level stuff, it will still be in production a decade from now, or at least it should be.  If it's not, that's a travesty.  There are more people and pros throwing that ball than I've ever seen before.  Everywhere you look people are throwing Idols.  It's actually insane.

For me, the Hyper Cell Fused is pushing the Hyper Cell Skid for #1 spot of all time. 

I don't know why it is hard for me to acknowledge that the Dare Devil Trick is #1 for me.  It's boring.  But I strike with it.  Repeatedly.  It's a really simple and dependable motion to the point of not being exciting....

No matter what ball I start with, when things go sideways the Sonic Boom comes out. I have tried to replace the Sonic Boom many times and have a collection of door stops to my credit. The best Roto Grip ball ever and I have rolled a bunch. I have tried to match the RG, Diff, cover, and core to no avail. Still hoping that maybe someday I will get lucky.

1.  Nomad Dagger.  I still have one of them and absolutely love the Rotary Core and hybrid cover.
2.  Rising Star.  Again, great combo with the Neutron Core and hybrid cover.
3.  Rogue Cell.  That ball got a ton of use and of course it has that Nucleus core.  Loved the combination of continuation and heavy roll that it offered.

Does any remember the Roto Grip Fuel? That was clean and continuous for a particle ball;yet it was still very smooth and did not stand up like some particles did.

Lot of you list the ink as your favorite. I’m not in love with mine yet. To jerkey off the dry, over under for me so far. I’m going to take it to 4000 and get that polish off to see if that makes a difference to smooth it out.

I put my ink at 2000 and love the motion now. How did it work at 4000 for you?
