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 R-I-G was designed to be different. This ball takes a low RG core and combines it with the Pumped Pearl Reactive coverstock to produce a ball that gets down the lane when facing light oil conditions while still offering a break on the backend.

Color: Pink/Onyx/White Pearl
Coverstock: Pumped Pearl
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: Medium Light to Light Oil

I drilled The Hustle POW and Hustle RIG to compliment my Hustle SAY/PRO's that I have. The POW was 75* x 5 x 35 while the RIG was 50 x 5 x 60 (pin in the ring finger). Both layouts compliment each other very well with the POW getting started later but in a stronger move than the RIG. The RIG is smoother and just a little earlier in it's motion off the back. I would recommend either the POW or RIG if you need more length than your SAY/PRO are giving you. These make great short length or lower volume pattern balls.

Roto Grip Hustle POW Review by Casey Murphy
« Reply #2 on: December 22, 2016, 11:15:40 AM »
Orientation:  Right Handed
Rev Rate:  375 RPM
Speed:  16-17 MPH
PAP:  4 5/8 straight across

Location:  Enterprise Park Lanes, Springfield MO
Pattern:  High Volume THS
Layout:  40, 5   , 70 w/p3 hole

The Hustle POW and Hustle RIG are the new pearl versions of the Hustle series.  When compared the Hustle SAY/PRO, the POW/RIG are much cleaner and backend quite a bit more.  They are super clean in the fronts and really go sideways off the dry!  If you loved your Hustle SAY/PRO but wanted something just a little cleaner with more recovery, look no further than the Hustle POW/RIG!

HUSTLE Pink/Onyx/White
Coverstock: Pumped Pearl
Core: Hustle
RG: 2.53
Differential: 0.030

ME: Right Handed Tweener
Speed - 12-13 mph
Positive Axis Point: 4 7/8 Right 3/8 Up

Ball Layout: Pin under Bridge 70 X 4 7/8 X 65

Length:40 ft

Volume:Med - Broken Down

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):THS


I drilled the Hustle S/A/Y and P/R/O looking for balls to use after the lanes had burned up. I was immediately suprised at how much they hooked and found they worked better for going up the lane on the fresh (P/R/O) or in the transition (S/A/Y) I was excited when I heard that a full Pearl version of the Hustle was available.

I took all 3 balls out on a lane that had plenty of traffic on it ahead of time. The P/O/W cleared the fronts beautifully and came flying back to crush the pocket. All I can say if you're thinking HP1=weak ball you have to see how this bad boy goes through the pins, wow does it hit a ton. In the same spot my PRO and SAY are 3 and 5 feet early respectively and much smoother in the backend. This had alway kept me from using the SAY on the burn because it was a bit slow to really open up the angles but Roto Grip Definitely gave me what I was looking for in the POW.

This ball is crazy clean through the front with a much more aggressive change of motion downlane. That motion allows me to open up my angles and still see the ball go through the pins. I also saw alot of forgiveness on a dry lane. The P/O/W has enough length to help save my inside shots and enough backend to get back when I really push it into the friction.

If you're looking for a clean ball with a good back-end snap for a great price this is what you're looking for.

Roto Grip Hustle P/O/W Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

The new Roto Grip Hustle P/O/W (Pink/Onyx/White) is the third addition to the Hustle line.  In the past, weíve normally only seen a couple entry level balls per year from Roto Grip.  For us to release two more means these balls have seen a good amount of success and the demand for a couple more options is there!  The Hustle series is built for anyone looking for an extremely dry lane ball or anyone looking for their first ball that actually hooks.

The great thing about the Hustle P/O/W is the RG is still very low for an entry level ball at 2.53 which ensures that this ball does not blow through the window of where itís supposed to read the lane.  It also creates a smoother motion down lane as opposed to most entry level balls have a very fast response time.

I will typically drill the cleaner and less aggressive balls quite a bit stronger to make sure they flare.  I drilled this with these stats: 3 Ĺ x 4 and took the surface down to 3000 to make sure it reads the lane the right way and also creates a smoother motion down lane.

If you need a ball for extremely dry lanes or are looking to get your first ball that hooks, the Hustle P/O/W would be a perfect fit.

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):
          Hustle POW

These HP1 balls are incredible. Ok folks, can you say awesome....these balls are so good for any house shot or medium to light sport patterns. The Hustles are so smooth through the fronts and a super strong backend motion. I have gotten three of the four different Hustles and with the different layouts, I feel I actually have three totally different balls. One is real smooth with a nice ark to the pocket, the other is a little more angular and the POW is quite strong down lane. I don't think you would go wrong with any of the Hustles. Huge ball for a little money. 

Likes:Medium to light patterns

Dislikes:heavy oil

Hustle P-O-W review - Mark Tarkington
« Reply #6 on: March 14, 2017, 03:18:59 PM »
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:  50 x 4 x 40

The POW is a fun one to roll.

As a lower price point ball, this one packs a pretty good punch.  It gets good length, has plenty of movement on the backend, and doesnít lose any hit.

Iíve been able to use the POW on our house shot and really like what Iíve seen. 

I can cover boards laterally if necessary or play the hold where our oil turns into a puddle. 

Iím looking forward to getting more games on the POW to see if it has any real limits.

What can you say? These Hustles are awesome! Great colors, performance and shelf appeal. I have everybody from beginning bowlers up to high level scratch players loving these rocks. The Hustle POW, for me, has been the go to ball for moving back in the track and playing them a bit straighter. I have slightly high ball speed and low tilt, so I need to be careful with weaker stuff loosing energy. This ball does not disappoint, great length, energy retention and hit. I recently put out a video with this ball, the Wreck'Em and the No Rules Pearl. The hit at the pin deck was impressive, to the point that if you didn't see the shot, you couldn't tell the difference between the bowling balls. I hope these balls stay around for awhile, the are great for any level of bowler and all of my customers love them! Thanks for reading and we'll see you on the lanes. #SquadRG
