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 3TP 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: Purple/Violet/Plum (3-Tone Purple)
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.

Cover: VTC-P18 Pearl
Weightblock: Hustle
Ball Finish: 1500 Polish
RG: 2.53
Differential: 0.030

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

Ball Layout: Pin over Middle Finger 55 X 6 X 45

The New Hustle 3TP is the cleanest version of this great HP1 line to date. The Pearl VTC-P18 cover gets this ball down-lane cleanly on even the worst lane beds. The difference between the 3TP and the Ink (also a very clean ball) is the more controllable down-lane move and added length.

I drilled the 3TP specifically for a house with high friction lane beds and medium volume. The carry-down is horrendous and the fronts start out hooking and just get worse as you bowl. This new Hustle exceeded all expectations, not only clearing the front but allowing me to stand right and play up the track. The ability to play right on this pattern is crucial as they get more over/under as you go left and your carry suffers for it.

This is a great option for rev-dominant and lower speed players. I can see me recommending this ball to alot of our senior customers as well as two-hand/no thumb players. This ball keeps the right side of the lane in play WAAAY longer than any other performance ball I've ever thrown.
