The Roto Grip All-Out Show Off combines the dynamic Hotshot Core with the hybrid version of the Stoked coverstock. This coverstock is 2 parts solid and 1 part pearl and is finished with a 1500-grit polish. This cover combination offers easy length with exceptional stability on the backend friction. This ball was composed to take on medium lane conditions and to offer options on various patterns when too much friction might be present.. The out of the box shine can be adjusted with sanding to take on slightly heavier oil conditions.

Color: Purple/Neon Green/White
Coverstock: Stoked Hybrid Reactive
Core: Hotshot
Finish: 1500-grit Polished
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium Oil
RG: 2.55**
Differential: 0.045**
** RG and Diff are based off of 15 lb. balls

Length: 41 Ft


Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):Low Ratio Blended House


Cover: Stoked Hybrid
Weightblock: Hotshot
Finish: 1500 Polish
RG: 2.55
Differential: 0.045

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

Ball Layout: Pin Over Ring 55 X 5 1/4 X 35

The new Roto Grip All Out Show Off continues the trend of Roto balls that climb out of their Performance Category and Price Point. This HP2 release, like it's solid counterpart, is a ton of ball for the price. The change in motion with the change of cover gives you the same great performance and value and lets you tackle additional conditions.

The All Out features the same great Hotshot symmetric core as the original Show off. The Hot Shot "was designed to provide length and down lane motion". The biggest suprise for me about the Show Off, aside from it's overall strength, was the down-lane motion you got despite the solid cover. The Hybrid version of the Stoked cover is even cleaner, but the solid load in the mix will "provide super stability on the backend off friction". The result is great ball motion and plenty of pop going through the pins.

I tested the All Out Show off on a High Volume 41 foot blended house pattern. The Ratio is a bit lower so there is plenty of OB. The lane surface is still very new Pro-Lane. It was the first night on the lengthened pattern and I threw a few test shots with my Dare Devil Danger first. After seeing how slow the back-ends were, I switched to the All Out Show Off and pushed the ball up the oil line. It reacted beautifully. Keeping my angle straighter through the front I could get closer to the friction and let the great continuation of the ball do the work in the back-end. It didn't disappoint. Watching everyone else on the pair shake their heads as their ball slide through the pocket without creating angle while I had area and could still put ten in the pit even on my misses left was alot of fun. This ball stores energy and it was apparent right away that I had something no one else did. It was a bit surprising how much I got out of this ball. I could have easily gone to anything top line, but I got plenty out of the All Out.

Roto Grip All-Out Show Off review
« Reply #2 on: November 21, 2017, 02:25:27 PM »
 The new addition to the Roto Grip HP2 line is the All Out Show Off.  It is the Hybird version on the popular original Show Off.   I drilled mine 5 x 4 x 4.5 similar to the Show OFF.  The All Out is a perfect compliment to the Show Off, as when the Show Off starts to labor too much in the midlane then it is time to switch to the All Out.
With the shiny Hybird Stoked cover the All Out gets down the lane much cleaner and has a quicker response to the friction.  The good thing is though that the All Out still keeps the same hitting power through the pins as the original.  Very good 1-2 punch out of the HP2 line from Roto Grip.  We probably drilled close to 20 of the original Show Off as it was that popular.  So I expect the same from the All Out Show Off.

Speed: 18mph
Rev Rate: 450rpm
Pattern: Typical House Shot

The Roto Grip All Out Show Off is a hybrid from the original Show Off. The All Out Show Off is much cleaner in the front part of the lane and is much weaker overall. The original Show Off at times is a little too strong for the ball reaction I like to see with the lower end/higher RG bowling balls. That is where the All Out Show Off comes into play! Its a great progression down from the original Show Off. These gals are going to a be great 1-2 punch!

The All Out Show Off is the perfect complement to the original Show Off. When the lanes begin to transition the All Out Show Off will be a good step down ball to go to. With the 2 part solid 1 part pearl you will get through the front part of the lane cleaner with that smooth controllable motion off the back end that is consistent with a solid.

You can see in the video (link below) the All Out Show Off goes longer similar to the original Show Off. Between both the Show Off and All Out Show Off I will be able to play in a similar part of the lane without making a big change when transition occurs.

The layout I used on this ball is 60x4x80. I tested this ball on a fresh house shot. There was no change to the surface of the ball.

Check out our complete review.  Read or listen hear:

For a house shot, I think a lot of bowlers will find the Roto Grip All-Out Show Off very usable and versatile. It’s again a great value in the HP2 line as we’ve become accustomed to. The ball is a little more “pearl” like than I expected and doesn’t really feel like it’s in the same family as the Show Off but it’s a good ball in its own right. If you bowl a lot on sport patterns, this ball will likely only offer an option as the shot is really well broken down. Most bowlers will find the All-Out to be a really good buy, especially if you mostly bowl on house shots.

The All Out Show Off continues Roto Grip’s infamous tradition in the HP2 line to give you way more than what the price point would suggest.  While the All Out is a much more reasonable hook potential for this line than the Show Off, it still keeps up with balls that would cost more.  For me it’s very reminiscent of Storm’s Rocket, fairly clean through the front part of the lane with a strong and continuous arc on the backend.  It matches up well with the hook of the Show Off, and the big backend move of the Wreck Em, it’s a very good compliment to those two and all 3 would make a pretty complete bag for a very low cost.  It’s been the first ball out of my bag since I got it, it’s become my benchmark, and gives me a good read on what the lanes are doing.  The controlled shape gives you plenty of warning when the lanes start to transition without suddenly getting jumpy or blowing through the breakpoint, and it’s been a great setup ball for my Dare Devil Danger.

The All-Out Show Off is the Hybrid version of the original Show Off and the newest ball in the Roto Grip HP2 line. It has the same Hotshot core with a 2.55 RG value, a .045 Diff that is in the original, but has the Stoked Hybrid coverstock. What cannot be understated here is the value that Roto Grip offers in the HP2 line.

Knowing how aggressive my Show Off is, I was not surprised to see the All-Out Show Off out-perform its price tag. The Stoked cover is way cleaner than the Micro DNA, so the All-Out responds to friction slower than the original. But because of the hybrid makeup of the cover, The All-Out Show Off is a great combination off of the original or even a great ball down from a Dare Devil Trick.

I also think this is one of the more versatile cores out there, so do not be afraid to put your favorite layout on it. This ball is a winner!

The Roto Grip All out Show off is Roto Grips newest HP2 line release.  The All out is hybrid version of the original Show off.  The All Out contains the Hotshot core like the Show Off and is covered with the Stoked Hybrid Coverstock.  The ball is factory finished at 1500 grit polished which gives the ball length and stronger reaction off the break point.  I drilled mine pin down with the pin placed below by bridge.  I drilled it stacked with the mass bias below the pin.  This is my favorite layout for pin downs because it gives me control.  The ball rolls really well.  The pin down gave the All out more arc in the backend but it still has a real strong movement off the break point.  The ball hooks more than you would think for being a HP2 line ball but still is weaker compared to the likes of the Dare Devil, Hywire, or Dare Devil Danger. 
The All Out is a great ball for learning bowlers or bowlers who are looking for a low end reactive for drier lanes.  It’s also a perfect fit for bowlers looking for length and good pop on the backend.

Roto Grip All Out Show Off Review by Casey Murphy
« Reply #9 on: November 30, 2017, 11:54:23 AM »
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:  45, 4 ¾   , 70

The All Out Show Off is a great compliment to the Show Off.  The Show Off features a very strong cover, which is too strong sometimes.  The All Out Show Off the perfect step down.  The AOSO is a hybrid that’s much much cleaner and more versatile.  It’s almost a few arrows cleaner than the Show Off and backends quite a bit more.  However it doesn’t jump off the dry to hard and has amazing continuation.  It’s the perfect choice for when the lanes start to transition and start to get really cliffed.  The All Out Show Off will blend the transition and over under.

I drilled my ALL OUT SHOW OFF 65 x 4.5 x 35 which is my benchmark (go to) layout that is the most predictable for me. I left it box finish. I may touch it lightly to accelerate the polish wear down to get it more even at the point. Right out of the box, I think STORM FRANTIC from a few years ago. Great when the lanes have blown open and you need predictable push in the fronts and good arc in the backends. The numbers bear out and are very close with the RG being the only difference. Compared to the original ALL OUT, the ALL OUT SHOW UP is about an arrow less ball and a perfect compliment. Roto Grip's HP2 line has always been known for some of the best hidden gems in the pro shop and the ALL OUT SHOW OFF is another gem and definitely the best bang for the buck on the market.

Roto Grip All Out Show Off:
Layout: 30 x 4 ½ x 40 = 1500 grit polished
On the new 46ft house pattern, the ball’s best look was standing 18L and keeping the ball outside of 8 through the front part of the pattern so it would not slow down in the heavier oil from 10-20. Once in there, the ball slow down a little too much for me and left more corner pins. Ball speed was also was a key. Starting the ball a little lower at set up, allow my ball speed to be controlled more to match the reaction better. If my ball speeds reach the 17 mph, it would not recover enough. Noticed once I had that happy area of ball speed of 16.0-16.5, I kept on striking and striking for at least 20 minutes non-stop. This ball will be great for those bowlers to have ball speed under 17 and average tilt and revs.

All out show off

Pin above bridge cg kicked out 1 inch

40 ft hpl on ths

This ball is awesome. It gets down the lane very easily and moves hard off the friction. The ball reminds me of a weaker original daredevil so much, which I loved this ball.  This ball will be a great step down for me from my daredevil trick. I was able to play more up the boards to start and when the lanes did start to transition some then it allowed me to really open up the lanes and play them the way I like. The color scheme on the ball is very appealing to the eye.  This ball is available now. Go see your local pro shop professional today. Roto Grip Own It.

Chris and the gang at RotoGrip are back at it with the Allout ShowOff! The HotShot Core is wrapped up with the Stoked Hybrid cover to give you that smooth mid lane feel that we all love. I drilled mine with my go to "I need help to get a down lane ball reaction pin up layout"....yup. Right off the rip, I was very comfortable tossing this ball while filming the reaction video. I felt like I had ten boards to play with, since my accuracy is like a sprinkler head, I got in with held, I got right with got back. Never too much or too little, it was a predictable, confidence inspiring shape on the lane. This ball looks really good on the shelf as well, I'm always pleased when a release works great, looks cool and leaves a few bucks in your purse after the purchase. We have sold a bunch of these in my shop and everyone is stoked with it. Great job again to SquadRG!!! #ownit
