Ball NPS Score: Not Available
The Roto Grip Wreck-Em bowling ball continues the success of the popular Wrecker bowling ball. The Neutron core in this ball is the motor that provides length and strong down-lane reaction. You won't find a better mid-performance core on the market. The cover on this ball is the Pumped Pearl Reactive coverstock that is finished with a 1500-grit factory polish. This ball provides more length and more reserved power at the breakpoint on medium to medium/light oil conditions and all at a reasonable price. Go ahead and Wreck-Em!

Color: Red/Purple/White
Coverstock: Pumped Pearl Reactive
Core: Neutron
Finish: 1500-grit Polished
Reaction: Good length with strong backend
Hook Potential: Medium-Low
Length: Long
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium to Medium/Light Oil
RG: 2.55**
Differential: 0.042**
** RG and Diff are based off of 15 lb. balls

Roto Grip Wreck'em

Layout: pin above the bridge. Cg in line with pin,oob

Condition: 40 ft house on hpl

I drilled this ball wanting to replace my outcry which had cracked. With this drilling, I was looking for length and strong backend.  I got his and much more. The cover is much stronger then I expected and hooked off the spot much more then I expected. It was very strong off the dry and carried very well. Once I got it in the oil some I left a few flat tens that my dare devil probably would have carried. All in all this is another great piece from Roto grip. The shelf appeal will definitely help sell this ball with a beautiful red, white and purple color scheme.  This ball releases on January 10th, get out and see your local pro shop 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 WreckEm is the latest HP2 release from RotoGrip. This ball is flat out fun to roll! Wind it up, get it to friction and watch it fly. I'm a huge fan of pearl symmetric bowling balls, so I was "pumped" to drill this one out. My customers love it, it looks great on the shelf and the price point is crazy good. If you've got some hand, this ball works well on fresh house shots. It does skid easy, so don't get too brave on heavier oil patterns. I drilled mine with the pin above my ring at 4 1/4 from my PAP and the flare from the core was impressive. I'm slightly speed dominant with lower tilt and I had no problems getting this ball to pocket on our house shot. I'm putting a video out on this ball soon and I plan to test it on a few sport conditions. I highly recommend this ball to more experienced players as well as new bowlers looking for a wallet friendly performance product. Thanks for reading and good luck on the lanes. #rotogrip #ownit

Roto Grip Wreck-Em Review by Lonnie Pemberton

Length: 41 ft


Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS

RG: 2.55 Differential: 0.042
Core: Neutron
Coverstock: Pumped 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 above Ring 55 X 4 5/8 X 40

The new Roto Grip Wreck Em is the newest HP2 ball featuring the Neutron core that powered the Wrecker and Wreck-It with a Pearl Reactive cover. This gives the ball the same even motion that made those previous releases so good, but allows the ball to get further downlane and increases the back-end motion.

I've found this ball to be a godsend when I don't want to go away from my wreck-it but am forced to because the front-end burns up. The Pearl cover lets me keep the same readable motion in a ball that will get through the burn and still turn over at the end of the pattern.

I've found the ball is strong enough that I can go to it earlier than some of the other Pearls I have drilled. It rolls good in the transition and keeps going through the pins when the lanes really breakdown. The reaction being those couple feet further downlane makes the ball a little stronger off the friction downlane.

If you find your go-to 'clean' ball seems over/under down-lane, this is the ball you're missing. Great length, even motion and great pin-carry.

Ball: Wreck’Em
Layout: 50 x 5 x 60
Finish: 1500 grit polished = tested with 5000 grit 3M
Reaction: Being a pearl I stuck to my pin down layout and actually it needed a little surface adjustment for my “eyes” to like the motion down lane. I can now play left of the typical lefty track area and not worry about not having enough ball in my hand like The Hustle line that I love to use on wood and older HPL which is what we have at the center I work and bowl at. The Hustle POW is my favorite of the bunch and if in practice, which one is going too far down lane before it starts the reaction, I been pulling out the Wreck It and had better reaction. But having that touch more pearl in it, the length is a few inches longer and more energy being stored which leaves less corner pins for me. When I need to use something on newer HPL I like to use this Wreck’Em as my first choice out the bag. With pin down it starts a little sooner and does not hydroplane like my other pearls do on it. Great ball to be the middle piece of your 3 ball arsenal or the 2nd ball out of your 4 ball arsenal.

If you are looking for a ball that will be clean through the fronts yet hook in the back end this is the ball for you. I tried this ball on medium THS (Typical House Shot) and it worked very well on this type of pattern. Ball hits great as well. Throw it right (RH Bowlers) and watch it come back on the spot! Another gem in the Roto Grip Line!

Type (THS

Wreck Em

The WreckEm is the latest HP2 release from RotoGrip. Another great release from Roto Grip, not only does it hook and hit but the shelf appeal may be one of the best looking balls ever. The layout for this ball was pin slightly up and just to the right of my ring finger. The Wreck Em cleared the fronts and was smooth through the mid lane, but then the ball got to the backend and the reaction I got was a total surprise. The surprise was for it to finish as strong as it did and was so continuous through the pins. The Wreck Em may be the strongest backend reaction I've ever thrown. It gives me so much length that I could play the same area of the lane for more games. I've only used it on a fairly heavy oiled house shot so far, but after 3 games with eight bowlers on the pair I moved about five boards left all night. At first, I wasn't sure how much backend motion the Wreck Em had because of the length that it gets, but it'll gets sideways. This ball is a must for medium house shots and with the length it will work great on sport patterns with small surface adjustments. A great bargain for your buck.

Likes:Very good ball for most patterns
