Title: Hustle PBR
Post by: BallReviews-scodaddy21 on June 24, 2020, 08:42:23 AM
Roto Grip Hustle PBR
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 PBR was designed to variety to the Hustle line of bowling balls. This ball takes a medium RG core and low differential to create a ball that will offer more control down lane. The VTC-S20 Solid Coverstock was created to offer a slightly different reaction. This Versatile Traction Control coverstock along with the 3000 grit finish was designed to react early without starting to roll too early on light oil lanes.

Roto Grip is adding a new factor into their HP1 Hustle Line, SURFACE.The new Hustle P/B/R wraps the very successful Hustle Core in a Solid VTC-S20™ cover. The Hustle Ink also featured a solid cover but it's polished finish made it the cleanest of the line for me. The 3000 grit finish on the Hustle PBR gives the ball more teeth to deal with mid-lane oil.

I tested the Hustle PBR on a fresh house condition expecting to be playing very close to the friction. This cover really blew me away. It started to read earlier than I expected so that I had to look for a little hold instead of firing straight into the friction. The biggest shock was watching the ball go through the pins. Even on a higher friction surface the PBR is fantastic at retaining energy. It was smooth and predictable off the spot but really went through the pins well.

I started out wanting to "try it out" and it has become hard for me to throw other balls because it is the ball I trust most right now, since week to week lane play has been pretty varied. This ball is very versatile and if you are looking for a single ball to fill a few spots in your bag I would suggest you give this one a try.

The Hustle PBR has the new VTC-S20 coverstock wrapped around the popular Hustle Core. The new sanded coverstock gives a brand new look in the Hustle line that creates ultimate versatility in the line for medium to light oil. This ball has the versatility to be great on house shots where you have lighter oil volumes or a lot of backend. This ball is also great on medium to short oil sport patterns or heavier volumes of oil on older lane surfaces. The continuation on this ball makes it very special and would be great for many masses of people on many different lane conditions.

Ball Specs:
Roto Grip Hustle PBR
Cover: 3000 VTC-S20™ Solid Reactive
Weight Block: Hustle™ Core (Symmetrical)
Color: Purple/Black/Red

The Hustle line sells through very well in our shop. There are not many bowling balls made by great companies that are affordable for the beginner and reliable and trusted by tournament veterans. This ball can be altered in many fashions to fit your game. It can be polished if you want to delay the reaction a bit down lane. It also comes out of the box at 3000, so altering this to 1500 would be an option if you play on some oil and use this ball as your first out of the bag.  The one thing this ball will not use is continuation through the pins. A lot of times you would expect similar balls in this price point to not finish quite as hard as this guy does here. Whether you are looking for a great starter ball or needing a “step down” solid late in a block, this ball lives up to the Hustle name.

The Hustles have returned although this time with new covers. We have the Hustle PBR (Solid) and Hustle RAP (Pearl). The PBR is a ball I am particularly looking forward to throwing. We’ve seen on some of the recent PBA telecasts Simonson and Prather make this ball look really good.

The PBR is going to be an excellent choice for those lighter oil conditions or when the backends are super crisp and you need the ball to back off a bit with lower differential. The PBR will allow you to play closer to the friction without it over reacting.

The RAP Hustle will be a step down ball from the PBR Solid when the lanes transition and you need a cleaner cover to clear the fronts. Similar to the Solid, due to the lower differential, we will see plenty of control down lane. The RAP Hustle will, also, be an option for those longer blocks when you begin getting to games 6 and on.

Drilling: Pin over bridge which is 4 inches from my PAP

One of the new Hustle bowling balls to come out for the HP1 line. This ball has the Hustle Core, and the VTC solid coverstock. This is one of the most versatile bowling balls in my bag at the moment. For being in the HP1 line, it is a bang for your buck big time! I have been able to throw this ball on quite a few shots.

With it being a solid coverstock it doesn't go too long, but its not early either. For me, its that "right type of versatile".

Go check it out at your local Storm VIP Shop!!
