Roto Grip Eternal Cell review by Brian Watson

Right Handed
Rev Rate - 400
Speed - 17
PAP - 3 up 1 1/2

I really like the Cell series so I was pretty pumped on the new release of the Eternal Cell.
A solid Asymmetrical that comes shiny.  I drilled mine pin down,  5  x 4 x 4.75 . The Cell series was always a very strong rolling bowling ball.   Sometimes they would kinda of labor down lane.  But with the Eternal I see more length but with strong midlane roll and continuous roll through pins.
Its a lot cleaner than Hyper Cell and Skid.  Great compliment though when those balls start to burn up.  I use the Eternal a lot when lanes get a little wet/dry and it blends out the pattern.  A very successful motion back in the Roto Grip Line.

Eternal Cell review - Mark Tarkington

Right Handed
Ball weight:  15
Rev Rate:  400
Ball Speed:  17.3
Axis Tilt:  7
Axis Rotation:  45*
PAP:  3 3/4 horizontal, 7/8 up
Layout:  30 x 3 x 60

Having been a fan of all of the Cell series, I was looking forward to the Eternal Cell.

Iíve found that low drill angles tend to roll much better for me, so this ball was to be a benchmark ball for mediums and/or THS.  Well, that didnít work quite like I had anticipated.  Even though itís polished out of the box, itís still quite strong and doesnít hesitate when it rolls up on friction.

Iíve used it on a couple of THS and itís strong enough to get through the puddle in the middle and still make the pocket.  If it encounters the friction outside it will jump left with the box polish.  I believe it will roll well at 2000 or 3000, but I havenít knocked the shine off of it yet.

I really enjoy rolling this ball and, as strange as it is to say, I really like the way it looks rolling down the lane.  Iíve actually had customers inquire about it, not because of hook or shape, but because of the colors.

With itís box surface, it may be a bit too sharp off the pattern on anything sport-certified, but I havenít had the opportunity to try it out yet. 

Anyone who likes the Cell series will definitely want this ball, itís a great addition to the Roto line.

Roto Grip Eternal Cell Review:
LANE CONDITION
Lane Type: Wood

Length: 41ft

Volume: 21ml

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS


COMMENTS

Likes: Smooth even reaction, great midlane roll and continuation through the pins.
Dislikes: none
The Roto Grip Eternal Cell is the newest Cell release.  It contains the Nucleus Core just like the other Cells in the line.  Its covered with the 75M Polished Solid cover and is finished with 1500 grit abralon.
I was very excited for the Eternal Cell.  I really liked the clean and smooth motion of the Hyper Cell Skid and the polished solid cover is my favorite combination.  I drilled mine with 25 x 5 3/8 x 17 with a weight hole on my PAP.  I wanted mine to roll a bit sooner and be smoother than my skid and that is exactly what I got.  The ball reads the mid lane very well and still hits the pocket real hard. 
I recommend this ball for anyone looking for that smooth reaction yet strong reaction off the breakpoint.  This ball gives you the best of both worlds.  This ball is great for medium to heavy oil and the combination of solid and polished cover gives it a good look on a lot of medium length patterns with heavier volumes.

The Eternal Cell is the most recent Roto Grip release using the tried and proven Nucleus Core. This new version has a polished solid cover that is cleaner through the front than the previous Hyper Cell and from my experience, Hyper Cell Skid. The eternal Cell has an Rg of 2.52, a differential of 0.056, and an intermediate differential of 0.018 in 15lb balls. The brightly colored orange, raspberry, and black, really stands out on the shelf.
I drilled my Eternal Cell with a 3 ĺ x 5 ľ x 2 Ĺ layout. I originally tried the Eternal Cell with box finish, and liked it on medium conditions, that had a moderate amount of oil in the middle of the lane. If there was too much build up in the middle, then the Eternal Cell had a tendency to over skid to the spot, and roll up behind the head pin. Once I lightly hit the Eternal Cell with a 3000 abralon pad, the motion blended out perfectly, and is now one of my favorite balls in the bag. The Eternal Cell rolls well from out as well as covering some boards, when getting my hand around the side of the ball. I still prefer the Eternal Cell on slightly more blended patterns, compared to the Critical, which seems to handle the over walls better. Even though the Eternal Cell has  a solid cover, I find it easier through the front of the lane, compared to the Hyper Cell Skid. Iíve had good reaction on pattern lengths from 37 to 43 feet in length with the Eternal Cell.
If you never drilled any of the previously released balls with the Nucleus Core, then I would recommend trying an Eternal Cell. The cover is a little cleaner than some of the really strong covers that are released today, and has a wide pattern coverage, especially with some cover tweaks to really dial in the ball for the condition that you bowl on. Stop by your local certified pro shop, and drill an Eternal Cell today. Thanks for taking the time to read my review of the Roto Grip Eternal Cell.
