Wreck-It
on: August 09, 2016, 01:35:55 PM
Ball NPS Score: 100.00
The Roto Grip Wreck-It 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 Psyched Hybrid Reactive coverstock that is finished with a 3000-grit pad. This ball provides more reaction and more versatility than its ancestor, the Wrecker, but at a reasonable price. Go ahead and Wreck-It!

Roto Grip Wreck-It
Layout: Label pin up
Finish: 3000 grit
Condition: 42 ft. THS on older HPL with a KEGEL FLEX with Fire and Ice conditioners with Defense-C cleaner.
Test results comparing to the Eternal Cell: The Wreck-It had about the same amount of overall hook as the Eternal Cell, and overall it performed very closely to it. It is 5-6 boards stronger than the Hustle SAY that has the same cover, but weaker core. Its amazing how much difference the core makes a difference with this coverstock. The ball did labor a little when playing deep inside without swing the whole lane, I believe it was due to amount of volume the THS that I bowl on has. The ball worked the best just outside the track area and responded really well even after the oil was moved around and pushed down lane. I bowled a few games on a house pattern that was lighter in volume and length, and this would be the main ball I would use in that center. Does well on light to medium level of oil on the THS. Great ball for people with slower ball speeds and people that enjoy playing like a stroker or a tweener. The Wreck-It has it covered for you.

The Roto Grip Wreck-It is everything you could want in a hybrid Wrecker. At times the Wrecker was just too snappy off the spot down lane, but not with the Wreck-It! The Wreck-It has just about the same amount of hook overall as the Wrecker but is much earlier and smoother. It really blends out the friction and continuous like crazy down lane! Bowlers will be able to throw the Wreck-It on a numerous amount of conditions since it clears the front part of the lane so well while always getting into a strong yet smooth roll. You can throw it on heavy oil or late in the day when the lanes start to hook. You cant go wrong with the Roto Grip Wreck-It in your bag!

FYI, the Wrecker was a hybrid also.

The Wreck-It is surprisingly and insanely strong for the price point.  This ball outhooks balls two "lines" higher than it, as it hooks more than Storm's Thunder Line and MOST balls in the Master line.  This ball could easily be in Roto's HP3 line, and bears no similarity to any other ball in the HP2 line, aside from being recognized by shape as a Wrecker on HGH.  I feel this ball is best used with some polish on the conditions it was designed for if you have average speed and average revs, the box surface prep makes it too strong for the conditions it's designed for, but the core isn't quite strong enough to make it better than other options on heavier oil conditions.  This is a continuous, hard arcing ball that you can be firm with and project with confidence on light to medium conditions.

Once again I'm blown away by a mid priced release. This must be the trend that companies are following. I drilled my Wreck-It and NORules on the same day. I took them both out during my summer league practice, got stretched out, tossed them and couldn't believe that the wreck-it out hooked the NoRules....I drilled the Wreck-It with a pin under my fingers, which is a 5 inch from pap, and my cg swung 45 dergees with a balance hole on my val. I was expecting a smooth and stable roll and that is what I got, just an arrow stronger than I thought. I'm drilling two tonight for my customers, I'll add to the post after the results. Go get this ball. If you are a Pro Shop guy or gal, go sell these bad boys! You'll Love It and Wreck It! #ownit #rotogrip

Roto Grip Wreck-It Review by Casey Murphy

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 , 40 w/p1 hole

The Wreck-it is the long awaited sequel to the Wrecker.  Its wrapped in a new smoother hybrid cover with the same Wrecker core.  The result is an earlier, smoother ball thats overall  more aggressive.  I love the Wrecker, but its too clean and too snappy to use all the time.  The Wreck-it solves that problem.  The new cover allows the ball to read the lane early enough to use on the fresh, but still creates plenty of backend.  The Wreck-it and Wrecker are the perfect pair!

The Wreck It is the newest release in Roto Grips HP2 line. The combination of the symmetric Neutron core and the Psyched hybrid coverstock, makes this one of the more versatile balls in the Roto line to date.

I drilled mine with the pin under my ring finger (4.5) with no extra hole.

With this layout, the Wreck it revs up mid-lane and makes a STRONG move down lane. It doesnt pick up nearly as early as the new No Rules, but still has a strong enough cover/core to be used on medium-heavy conditions.

In my ball motion video, I threw the No Rules and the Wreck It on a 43 medium volume sport pattern and was able to get them both to match up very nicely. You can find that video here: https://youtu.be/XwYDJHFiBck.

The Roto Grip Wreck IT is the newest release in Roto Grips HP2 Line.  The ball is the hybrd version of Roto Grips Wrecker.  The Wreck IT is covered with the Psyched Hybrid coverstock and is finished at 3000 grit Matte.  The ball surrounds the Neutron Core and the colors are Gold, white, ad Black.
The Wreck IT screams benchmark ball to me.  The overall reaction is strong but not too strong where you cant control it.  I drilled mine with a 50x5x45 layout which gives me length with a moderately smooth backend reaction.  This ball reminds me of the Roto Grip Devour but is a bit stronger overall.  The Wreck It is very versatile and can be used anywhere from 2nd arrow to 5th arrow depending on the oil pattern. 
I recommend this ball for a bowler who needs that medium oil pattern ball.  Like I said before its a great benchmark ball because of its versatility.  You can also shine it up and give it more length for drier lanes or for a more stronger backend pop.

Roto Grip Wreck-it review by Brian Watson
Reply #9 on: August 31, 2016, 02:48:37 PM
The new addition to the Roto Grip HP2 Line is the Wreck-it.  RG uses a new Hybird cover (Psyched Hybrid Reactive) wrapped on the successful (Wrecker)Neutron Core. 
Where the Wrecker could get a little snappy on the back end the Wreck-it is a much more smoother earlier motion.  Overall a stronger ball motion than the previous Wrecker.  With this motion the Wreck it can handle more oil, and a variety of lane conditions. Very versatile cover as it adjust to sanding or polishing very well.
I drilled mine pin down 4.25x4.25x4.25 no hole.  Wreck-it will also fit all styles of bowlers.   With the No Rules and the Wreck-it these are becoming my 2 favorite balls in my arsenal.

The newest addition to the RotoGrip HP2 line is the Wreck IT.  The Wreck IT features the Psyched Hybrid Coverstock wrapped around the proven Neutron Core.  The combination is a very aggressive ball that still motions down lane. The Wreck IT fills the gap that was in the HP2 line HOOK! 

I layout out my Wreck IT with pin below the bridge with the cg kicked out and down with a medium size extra hole also down.  The coordinates are roughly 45 by 5 by 75 and that is off my PAP which is 5 5/8 over and up.  I was able to throw the Wreck IT and a couple other balls on various patterns for comparison.  The first pattern was a flat 40 foot sport pattern.  The Wreck IT was very readable and strong at the break point early on.  The issue arose when the heads started to burn up and forced me to move left.  My rev rate being around 300 and slower speed did not help the Wreck IT retain enough energy to get through the pins correctly.  I believe with a slightly different drill or a surface change this issue would be resolved or just change balls to something that goes longer like the Wrecker or HyWire.  That is what I did.  The other pattern which I bowled on was the famous house pattern but on two different surfaces.  The Wreck IT on the THS or a tighter surface is money.  I could play straighter and keep the oil line to the left and strike for days.  The over under was drastically reduced compared to the Wrecker and also the HyWire.  The Wreck IT on the THS with a lot of friction was a little different because of the surface on the Wreck IT.  The Wreck IT was a monster early and I had room to the right but my angle was drastic.  Again in this circumstance a little polish would go a long way for this ball to stay in play!  I did not want to adjust the surface so I changed balls to the Wrecker and Bam back into my comfort zone.  The Wreck IT and Wrecker is great one two punch for anyone on a budget!

The Wreck IT is another solid addition to the RotoGrip Family of bowling balls!

Roto Grip Wreck It Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

The Wreck It by Roto Grip is the newest addition to the HP2 line.  Being a huge fan of the Wrecker, I was excited to see Utah was making the same ball, but with a solid cover.  This ball has been a home run so far and Im really happy with how it rolls.  Ive drilled one so far and drilled it the same way my favorite Wrecker was drilled.  Its mapped out as: 4 x 2.5 x 30 with a 1 hole on my axis. 

With that layout, I also tweaked the surface by using a 4000 pad with water to create a bit more length and pop down lane.  Ive noticed the Wreck It provides players with a cleaner, but very predictable and smooth shape down lane.  The response time is slower with this ball as well because of the solid coverstock.  Ive had a lot of success with the Wreck It on high friction surfaces and tougher patterns because of the clean, but slow response time. 

If you need something thats going to get down the lane easy, but provide a smooth and predictable shape at the break point, the Wreck It would be a nice solution for you!

Wreck-It
Reply #14 on: October 27, 2016, 03:04:42 PM
Weight:  14 lbs.
Pin Length:  4
Drilling:  50X4X45
Pattern Length: 40 ft.
Pattern Volume:  Medium
Pattern Type:  House
Right Handed

The Wreck-It has the new Solid Neutron Core inside the Psyched Hybrid Reactive Coverstock.  This ball has a similar look to the ever popular, and proven Wrecker, with a little stronger motion coming off the pattern.  It is in the HP2 hook line, but hooks more like an HP3 ball.

I have used the Wreck_It on 39 and 40 ft.house patterns and a 44 ft. sport pattern. 

For our 40 ft. house pattern, the Wreck-It is plenty of ball to start with, or a great go to ball from the No Rules.  For the price point, you cannot beat what you are getting with the Wreck-It.  It comes off the pattern a lot stronger than i expected, and continues through the pins very strong.

I also used the Wreck-It on a 44 ft. sport pattern.  When the lanes went into transition, the Wreck-It took over where the No Rules left off. 

Ive drilled a 2nd Wreck-It with the pin down.  This ball fits in perfectly when my other Wreck-it is going a little too long.   

If youre looking for an aggressive ball without breaking your wallet, the Wreck-It will not disappoint.  Its a fixture in my arsenal.  The No Rules, both Wreck-Its and the Hustle P/R/O are a complete arsenal for me.
