Dare Devil Trick
« on: March 16, 2017, 01:41:12 PM »
Trick the competition with the Roto Grip Dare Devil Trick bowling ball. Roto Grip has taken the Madcap core that was introduced in the original Dare Devil ball and combined it with the Reckless Solid Reactive coverstock and then finished it with a 2000 grit pad. The Madcap core has proven itself as one that offers midlane roll that continues through the pin deck unlike other symmetrical shaped cores from Roto Grip. The solid version of this ball offers more traction and response to friction than the original. This ball was made for medium-heavy to heavy oil conditions but can be tweaked to handle lighter oil too.

Color: Black/Teal/Red
Core: Madcap
Coverstock: Reckless Solid Reactive
Finish: 2000-grit Pad
RG: 2.48 (for 15# ball)
Differential: 0.041 (for 15# ball)
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium/Heavy-Heavy Oil

The Daredevil Trick is the follow up ball to the Daredevil in the HP3 line of balls from Roto Grip. This version has a solid cover called Reckless and comes from the factory with a 2000 grit abralon finish. The color combination is black teal and red, and uses the same Madcap core found in the original Daredevil which has core numbers of 2.48 rg and 0.041 diff in 15 lb balls.

I drilled the Daredevil Trick with the same layout as I have on my first Daredevil,
4 ¾ x 5 ¼ x 2 ½. In the box finish, the Trick starts creating traction in oil quicker and has more overall hook potential than the Daredevil with this slower transition, medium-high flare potential drilling. I can use the Trick on lanes that have carry-down, and when the Daredevil just can’t slow down enough to make the corner, and face up properly towards the pocket. I like the Trick on medium to medium heavy lane conditions, with decent blend left to right. The HP3 line of balls from Roto Grip have produced some of the most consistent reactions for me, and my style of play, and the Trick is another great addition in this line. I have not altered the surface of the Trick, only cleaned it with Reacta-Clean, and a light touch of a grey scotchbrite to get some belt marks off of the ball. With probably 70 or so games on the Trick, there is lane shine on the ball and is a cleaner through the front part of the lane than when fresh out of the box. With some fresh surface for heavier volumes of oil; some polish or lane shine for medium conditions, the Daredevil Trick has good pattern coverage from the Medium to the heavy stuff.

The Daredevil Trick is a great addition to anyone's bag when wanting a ball that has a variety of pattern coverage, and has a consistent, reliable ball motion. The Trick is just a good ball, period.
