This ball is gorgeous.  My only concern was that it would hook. (have tried a few clear plastic before)

I was pleasantly surprised to find that it goes pretty straight.  Definitely a head turner.

Ball specs – 15 lbs 1 oz, 2.00 top weight

This is another great looking and innovative polyester ball offered by Roto Grip.  You will be answering the “What is that ball?” question many times over when other bowlers notice it in your hands.

The Golden Globe was drilled over the label and was left in OOB condition.  It goes pretty straight for a clear polyester cover. It will see action as a spare ball and for very dry conditions when the entry-level performance balls are too strong.

This really is a great looking spare ball.  The "under glass" look is always an eye catcher.  Pretty difficult to review a spare ball, so I'll keep it short.  No excessive hook that I have seen in some clear spare balls, but you will need either a lot of hand or extremely dry conditions with minimal carrydown to use as a strike ball.

Sometimes there isn't much that can be said about a spare ball, but with this ball that's not true.  The Golden Globe is a great looking ball and ever since I've started throwing it I have everybody around my lanes coming over to check it out and they always comment on how cool it looks.  As good as it looks that's not the reason I like it so much.  I was having problems with my previous spare ball because I like to put some hand into my spare shots and my old spare ball would often hook and I was missing a lot of easy spares.  Well, since I got the Golden Globe I haven't missed much of anything and my friends have even started to jokingly call me "Dead Eye".  The ball is very predictable and will stay on whatever line you throw it.  So if you are looking for a spare ball that you can trust and also looks extremely nice, then this would be the ball for you.  This is the best spare ball I have ever owned and I would recommend it to anybody.

Great looking ball.  I drilled mine up to replace the Spare Tire.  Friends are asking, first the Spare Tire, now the Golden Globe, what's next.  The golden Globe does what it is made for, shooting spares.  Another cool looking ball.  Thank you Roto Grip!!

This ball is SHARP!!!!! It gets attention wherever I go and looks great in your bag, on the shelf, on the ball return, wherever you might put it! Performance wise, most folks can't tell the difference from one plastic to another, so why not look good?

This Gold ball turns everyones head.  It is very sweet looking and really stands out among other balls.  I was surprised with how straight the ball goes.  With a ball like this your spare game has no choice but to improve tremendously.  It will take a lot more hook on the lanes than most bowlers will ever see for this ball to hook or over hook at spares.  This ball will improve your spares which will improve your average.

Another great looking spare ball by the "King of Them All" Roto Grip.  This ball draws attention just setiing on the ball rack or on the wall in the Pro Shop.  It has great color and unique graphic designs.  It's straight as an arrow for all the spares.
