In sports we are always told to hustle well now Roto Grip is providing a ball that will do just that on the lanes. The Roto Grip Hustle Au was designed to be different. This ball takes a medium RG/ low differential core and combines it with the VTC-P18 Pearl Reactive coverstock to produce a ball that increases traction while storing energy when facing light oil conditions while still offering a break on the backend.

Color: Gold/Light Gold
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: VTC-P18 Pearl Reactive
Core: Hustle (14#-16#) (Lightbulb core for 13# & 12# and a puck core for 11# & 10#)
Ball Finish: 1500-grit Polished
RG: 2.53 (15# ball)
Differential: 0.030 (15# ball)
Recommended Lane Condition: Light to Medium Oil

Ball Review:
The Hustles will be a great option on those lower to medium volume oil patterns or transitioned lanes where the fronts have gone away.
The Hybrid will be a smoother more controllable reaction than the pearl whereas the latter will provide cleaner/more angular motion downlane.
I did a pin down layout on the hybrid as I would want that as my first go to ball to keep my angles in front of me. Plus the solid within the hybrid allows this additional control.
On the 2 pearls I placed a pin down and pin up on each to see the different shot shapes. With the pin down compared to the hybrid I saw a lot more length and responsiveness downlane than the hybrid. With the pin up pearl compared to the pin down pearl there was definitely a lot more length and angle to that ball.
Wtih each of the 3 new Hustles there will be a step down from each ball - Hybrid to pin down pearl to pin up pearl. Those who were a fan of the previously released Hustles or those looking for a weaker/cleaner piece in their arsenal the newly released Hustles will be a great option to choose from.

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):THS


Cover: VTC-H18™ Pearl Reactive
Weightblock: Hustle™ Core (Symmetrical)
Finish: 1500 Polished
RG: 2.53
Differential: 0.030

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

Ball Layout: Pin Up and Right of Ring 65 X 4 1/8 X 35

The New Hustle AU gives a unique motion in the HP1 line. The Polished Pearl version of the VTC-P18™ cover is further affected by the chosen 2 tone gold color to create a smoother back-end motion in a somewhat cleaner version of this ball.

The Hustle Ink despite its solid cover was a very clean ball that was quick off the spot. It created great angle into the pins and was one of the most versatile balls on the market. The AU is much smoother and a touch earlier despite its pearl cover. This ball is amazing at smoothing out difficult lane patterns. It is clean enough to get through burned up lane heads but gives you enough mid-lane motion to avoid excessive carrydown. This ball is a must have to tournament patterns and high friction house shots.

The Hustle AU is a great addition to the Hustle line. Gives you more length than the other Hustles and with the layout I used 5 x 3.5 x 30 the AU keeps me out of trouble when the lanes breakdown and other balls are too strong in my lineup. If you're looking for a low end ball to add to your bag this is a great choice! Available at your local pro shop

This new pearl Hustle is the most skid/flip of any other current Hustle, and once again has packed a lot of performance in a low price point ball. These newer pearl Hustles seem slightly weaker than their previously released counterparts and I am very happy to see that. I see this ball being great for when the lanes start hooking in the front or when bowling on very worn lane surfaces.
