The newest Hustle to the hustle family is the USA this is the hybrid solid version. When i drilled mined it picked up faster than my camo with the same layout 60 x 5 x 40. This ball looks great on a med to medium dry house pattern allows me to move right after the lanes breakdown from balls like my gem or x-3

45 x 4 3/8 x 35
There have been many times over the years where the amount of motion that I get out of the various Hustles has surprised me, but this one takes the cake. The amount of midlane and backend motion that I get out of the Hustle USA easily rivals that of bowling balls that cost $50+ more than this ball. That is also after I hit the ball with a 4000 pad! Possibly due to the mild nature of the core, there isn't much early traction (which is good), but it digs in HARD once it reaches the late midlane. In box finish, I would need a good bit of oil to be able to use this ball. At 4000, it is great on medium conditions, but it is strong enough down lane that it is too much to use down-and-in.

The newest release in the popular Hustle line is the Hustle USA.  This Hustle features the VTC Hybrid Reactive coverstock in eye-catching red, white and blue.  This ball still has the same reliable Hustle core as previous models.  The USA comes finished at 3000 grit abralon which gives this Hustle a more unique ball motion than the Wine Hustle or the Camo Hustle.  The USA has the same amount of overall hook as the other Hustles, but the USA does not tend to skid past the breakpoint like the other polished Hustles.  The cover on the USA allows the bowler to stay closer to the dry boards and keep the angles closed.  This ball has a heavy rolling, gradual backend motion and with the color scheme, the ball really looks like it is tumbling on the backend.  This motion allows the errant shots to the dry to not overreact too quickly and cause the ball to go high or through the nose.  This will be a great choice on the more difficult, drier patterns as the mellow motion gives the bowler a predictable ball reaction.

Roto Grip continues its brilliant Hustle legacy with the release of the Hustle USA. This patriotic beauty starts with the proven Hustle core. And with the VTC Hybrid coverstock, the Hustle USA brings another great success to the Hustle line. This winning combination of core and cover produced some great results. So, let’s break it down on a THS!

The Hustle Core is a proven industry standard core. From its first production in the Hustle INK, the Hustle Core has been stable, consistent, and predictable, making it an excellent choice for many style bowlers. The Hustle Core will give new bowlers their first view of skid hook and roll and why it is essential to understand it in your game. And for the veteran bowler, the Hustle Core will give you that smooth continuous motion you count on for those late-night broken-down conditions. The Hustle Core is very dependable, and you can trust its motion to deliver results.

The new VTC (Versatile Traction Control) Hybrid Coverstock brings a fresh and robust look to the Hustle line. And the new VTC Hybrid coverstock delivers the consistency I like to see when I need it. I started out by changing the surface of the Hustle USA to 1500-grit Abralon for a league night of bowling. And although I had to be soft and easy off my hand as the night began, I liked how the VTC Hybrid had a good amount of traction in the mid-lane. And that traction stayed consistent all night long. From the start, when I was playing right of the second arrow - to late night when I was looking at the third arrow, the VTC cover blended the conditions quite well all night. Roto Grip suggests the VTC Hybrid coverstock is for low to medium oil patterns. And I would agree, as this is where the Hustle USA shines most brilliantly!

So, in conclusion, the Hustle USA is an excellent release by Roto Grip. So, if you are a beginner bowler looking to start bowling, the Hustle USA makes a great first ball. And for seasoned bowlers looking for a low to medium-volume ball to fit their arsenal, the Hustle USA is an excellent choice. So stop by, visit your local pro shop operator, and have a Hustle USA drilled for you today! Then enjoy a great night of bowling with the red, white, and blue Hustle USA! It is well worth it!

Hustle USA – WWRD 8/19/2022

Roto Grip’s new Hustle USA is a Hybrid Symmetrical piece that is good for Dry-Medium lane conditions. PAP is 5 5/16 R 1 3/16 Up. Drilled it with the Pin above the Bridge and the CG kicked out 1 ½”. It gets length with continuous backend motion through the pins for a High performance ball at an affordable price point. Compared to the Hustle Camo, PBR, and Wine, this is the stronger piece out of the Hustle line. If your looking to save money on a strong piece, this is the piece for you.

Roto Grip Hustle USA
Layout: 4.5 x 3.5 x 2
Rev Rate: 325 rpm, 7 degree of axis tilt, 40 degree of axis rotation
Testing information: 40 foot THS (medium to light volume)
Bowling Center: Fulton Bowling Center
Kegel Machine – Brunswick Anvilane

The Roto Grip Hustle USA utilizes the Hustle Core and VTC hybrid coverstock.  The Hustle USA has been one of my more anticipated releases as of late.  We tested on a 3-day old league shot that followed a mix league, youth league, and two days of open bowling.  Therefore, testing conditions were not ideal.  The Hustle USA did impress though.  I see the Hustle USA being my No. 4 ball in my six ball arsenal.  I anticipate being able to through it in league and to start medium volume sport patterns.  The Hustle USA was very predictable and the carry was good.  I see it getting even better as we get a few games on it.  We tested against a lane-shined iQ Tour.  The Hustle USA was a touch earlier and smoother on the back end than the iQ Tour.  This cold have been the difference in surface prep.  We saw a lot of Hustle PBR characteristics in the USA.

Ball Specs:
Roto Grip Hustle USA
3000 grit VTC™ Hybrid Reactive
Weight Block: Hustle™ (Symmetrical)
Color: Ultra Red/Snow/Azure (USA)

There is NO reason to not love this line of bowling balls. They cater to literally every bowler in the world, regardless of skill level and is priced so reasonably that its worth its weight in gold. For the seasoned veterans you can expect an extremely versatile low end hybrid, something to keep transition to late in a block if you are needing to move right (even if the conditions are drying up). For the novice bowler you can expect great value in your purchase, getting a great piece of equipment for pennies over an entry level reactive bowling ball. The color options also appeal to novice bowlers who may care more about color than performance. The trusted Hustle core is in many bowling record books for a reason, it’s just that good. USA baby!!!

The Hustle Line of balls has a lot of performance at a budget price. The Hustle USA hooks more than I expected and reads the lane pretty early. The Hustle USA creates a very nice controlled arch shape on the lane. Even though the USA rolls early it continues to drive through the pins very well. I put this ball a bit under my Camo (at the same box finish) but above my Hustle Pearl in total hook.  The Hustle Line hits as hard as balls that cost much more. This ball would be a great choice for a newer bowler who wants a performance ball at a great price. The colors of the USA look great at box finish but it really looks good polished up. I polished mine and got a better amount of length with more backend motion while still being very controllable. This ball has been selling well at our shop due to the performance, price and color of the ball. The Hustle USA also has excellent hit and carry.

The Hustle USA rolls like a higher priced ball.
The motion and hit of this ball is very good.
The Surface of the USA is adjusted easily.
This ball should work well for all styles of bowlers.

Roto Grip Hustle USA
Coverstock: Versatile Traction Control (VTC) Hybrid Reactive
Core: Hustle
Layout: 5 x 4 x 2


Wow. What a looker! I love red/white/blue swirl bowling balls. My pin up Hustle USA is the earliest and strongest Hustle I have ever thrown. It easily handles medium to longer oil patterns and is a great ball for beginners looking for their first “big hook ball” or experienced league or tournament bowlers looking to cover a variety of conditions with one ball.

Another great addition to the Hustle line. Roto Grip introducing the all new Hustle USA. The same core we all know and can rely on in the Hustle USA, wrapped with the VTC Hybrid Reactive coverstock. What you’ll see out of this ball is a cleaner, low end symmetrical piece but also very round and smooth. This ball is great when the lanes have a lot of friction or the patterns are on the flatter side. This ball provides a smooth and dependable shape, but can still come around the corner from steeper angles. This ball is a lot smoother than the Hustle Wine but not as early as a Hustle Camo. The perfect in between for the low end pieces from Roto Grip. It also handles surface changes very well.
Shining this ball up gives you more of a skid-snap motion downlane and bringing the surface down gives you a low end ball that can still handle oil and continue through the pins. Stop by and pick your up and your local Storm VIP Pro Shop!

Hustle USA Review by Luke Rosdahl
« Reply #11 on: October 17, 2022, 10:53:01 AM »
The Hustle USA features the VTC Hybrid cover at a 3000 grit finish, and the Hustle core at a 2.53 RG, and a .030 in 15 pounds.  The USA is a quite different shape from the Wine and Camo, it’s earlier and smoother, plus it has more of a tumbly gradual roll and shape rather than the longer and quicker round roll of the Wine and Camo.  However, the USA is a very similar strength to the Wine and Camo.  The Hustle line as a whole is a very solid light to medium oil choice that succeed on regular house shots as well as tougher sport patterns.  Bryanna Cote notably just won on the PWBA with the USA because of its strong, gradual roll and control.  They’re definitely more of light to medium condition performance balls than entry level balls, they are a great choice for a novice or beginner bowler to help them start understanding about bowling balls that hook, but they’re obviously also a great tool for the best in the game at the highest levels of competition.  The USA fits as a ball up from the Tropical Surge line, a ball sideways from the other Hustles, the Burners, and the Electrify Pearl, a half step down from the Hyped line, and a ball down from the IQ Tour and Hyroad.

Roto Grip Hustle USA review by Trevor Roberts
« Reply #12 on: October 17, 2022, 06:07:01 PM »
Lane Condition
Length: 40
Volume: Medium
Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS

The Hustle USA is unique because to me it is stronger than the previous Hustles. I believe that comes from the cover, so I’m excited to polish it and see how much that changes the reaction. I’ve thrown it a few games now in practice. The weak core gets it down the lane, but the cover gets it to see the mid lane, so it reacts more like a benchmark ball. I’m going to polish it in the next couple days, and I’m guessing that’s the surface I will keep it at. For the people with higher ball speed, the surface will help you tremendously and you will love this ball right out of the box. I’m glad that Storm made this ball, to show respect to the country and for those that fight for our freedom!

Hey everyone, I'm back with another ball review, and this time it's for the Roto Grip Hustle USA and in 15 pounds this ball is wrapped in the VTC (Versatile Traction Control) Hybrid Reactive Cover stock and comes 3000-grit polished with an RG of 2.53, Diff of .030.
Depending on the surface of the Hustle USA, bowlers will be able to use this on low-to-medium oil conditions. There are not many balls that can cover a variety of conditions, especially at an entry level price point. To give a comparison the Hustle Wine will glide just a tad through the front of the lane compared to the Hustle Camo. This two-ball release will be a nice transition when the "benchmark" balls are just too early. The Solid and Pearl will naturally be longer and stronger.
BOWLER STYLE: RH - Power Stroker Rev Rate: 320 Ball Speed: 15-16 PAP: 4 7/8 right 5/8 up.

The all new Hustle USA is the newest addition to the Hustle line. The Hustle line has been the best low tier ball line in the market and the USA will be no exception. The Hustle USA features the VTC Hybrid Coverstock with a 3000 grit finish. This is a lethal combination that helps players of all abilities have a strong controllable piece for all oil patterns. This ball will be particularly good for players that are rev dominant that are looking for a step down from a Phase II, Idol Helios, and/or a Zen Soul. You do not want to miss out on this ball, go out and get yours today!
