Roto Grip wants to get you hyped up with this mid-performance bowling ball! The Roto Grip Hyped Solid features the Hyped core which has a low RG. This core allows the ball to offer more overall motion than Roto Grip's entry-level balls but a little less than their upper-mid performance bowling balls. The coverstock on the Hyped Solid is the VTC (Versatile Traction Control) Solid Coverstock which provides earlier traction and is ideal for a little more oil. This ball is also a great match when the friction down lane requires more control. The versatility of this bowling ball is something to get hyped about!

Color: Wine/Berry/Magenta
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: VTC Solid Reactive
Core: Hyped
Finish: 3000 Abralon
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium
RG: 2.52 (15# ball)

“I was so excited to see them make a hyped solid because of how much i threw the hyped pearl and hybrid. I think this new hyped solid is going to be a staple in my bag and will probably be my first ball out. If you're looking for the most bang for you money, look no further than the hyped solid. Get to your local pro shop to drill this piece up!!”

Hyped Solid• HP2 Series
Core •Hyped Core
Coverstock • VTC Solid Reactive • Finish 3000 Abralon
Weight • 15 lbs. RG •2.52 Differential • .036
Layout • 4 x 4 x 1 1/4
Tester PAP • 5” R, 5/8” D Tester Axis Tilt • 11° Testers Rev Rate • 325
Test Pattern • 42’ THS (Typical House Shot) • Modified, Kegel Stone Street

Roto Grip’s HP2 line has reached a new pinnacle of success with the release of the Hyped Solid! Built on the proven Hyped Core found in the Hybrid and Pearl versions, the new Hyped Solid provides a well-rounded and versatile dimension that delivers impressive results for the THS bowler. So, let’s take a closer look at what makes the Hyped Solid the right choice for your arsenal.

The Hyped Core is the heartbeat of the Hyped Solid. And it is a workhorse from your release at the foul line to its impact at sixty feet. I was impressed with how the Hyped Core gave me a smooth, well-rounded motion down the lane. And for a low RG core, I loved how the Hyped Core retains a significant amount of energy that explodes as it strikes the pins. Further, I liked how the Hyped Core keeps rolling. For its size and shape, the Hyped Core has a strong continuation providing great pin carry that rivals many bigger and stronger cores. Roto Grip has done a great job with the Hyped Core, and I would expect it to become their next core staple!

The VTC (Versatile traction Control) Solid coverstock brings great versatility to any weekly bowler. Whether early on fresh oil or burned-up conditions, I found the VTC Solid to bring consistency all night. I like on fresh oil how the VTC Solid reacts smoothly in the mid-lane and has a consistent amount of traction without being over-sensitive when it finds friction. And this type of blended response made the VTC Solid a great cover as the night went on. I enjoyed opening my angles and watching the VTC Solid blend the wet/dry conditions smoothly while maintaining brisk movement off the pattern. So, if you are a low rev/ higher speed player like me, you will find the VTC Solid an excellent choice for any typical night of league bowling.

In conclusion, the Hyped Solid delivers another success to Hyped Line! And with the winning combination of Hyped Core and VTC Solid coverstock, the Hyped Solid will provide excellent results for any weekly league bowler. And for those seasoned bowlers needing a ball to fit in between your big core/big cover and your small core/pearl covers, the Hyped Solid will be a great fit. So, see your local pro shop operator today and see how the Hyped Solid fits in your arsenal! It is a great choice!

The new Hyped Solid features the Hyped core wrapped in VTC solid coverstock.    The Hyped Solid is a great ball for your typical house shot conditions.  The ball comes finished at 3000 grit abralon, which allows the ball to still read the lane when you miss inside in the oil.  Conversely, when you miss to the dry a little early, the ball does not overreact and has a smooth arcing backend motion which is strong through the pins.  Rev dominant bowlers will love this new Hyped release as will bowlers with just below average ball speed.  The Hyped solid is a classic benchmark ball.  It won’t be the most hooking ball, it won’t be the ball with the skid/flip reaction, but it will be the ball that let’s you read and control the pattern.  The Hyped series continues to be a tremendous line at a great price point.

Hyped Solid – WWRD 8/19/2022

Roto Grip's new Hyped Solid is a Solid Symmetrical piece that is good for 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 starts up in the mid lane with a smooth continuous backend. I compared this to the Hustle USA and this was earlier and smoother on the backend. Good piece to start a block to get the smooth motion on the backend.

]The thirrd installment to the Hyped series is the Hyped solid. I was excited to try this ball after having great success with the pearl. The Hyped solid with the vtc coverstock is a nice compliment to the pearl. Allowing this ball to reead a lot faster and give you great shape off the spot. If you're looking to add to your mid performance line up this is a great choice.

Roto Grip Hyped Solid Ball Review

Rev Rate: 375
Ball Speed: 15-16 mph
PAP: 5 inches over, 1/2 inch up
Layout: 45x5x30

(I have attached a link to the Hyped Solid Ball Review that I did on YouTube. Feel free to check it out!)

The Hyped Solid is a very versatile piece for medium oil conditions. It has an “overall” ball motion type of feel; it doesn’t overly do anything which helps with control on both the front and back ends. I compared it to the Storm !Q Tour to see just how much more overall it is and it definitely fits above. It has the same versatility gene and can be a fit into your arsenal just for that reason.
Get “hyped” about the Hyped Solid!

Ball Specs:
Roto Grip Hyped Solid
Coverstock: 3000 grit VTCâ„¢ Solid Reactive
Weight Block: Hypedâ„¢ Core (Symmetrical)
Color: Wine/Berry/Magenta

The hyped line is quickly making a name for itself. No matter your talent level you should have a mid level ball in your bag and this piece fits anyone with its versatility. If you are weaker solid cover late in block then this shape will benefit you greatly. We feel this ball has the perfect amount of hook for the average player and the cover is easily altered without loosing too much shape or becoming unpredictable. Altogether this is a perfect mid level solid that really lives up to the hype!

The new Hyped Solid is a ball I have been hoping would come out for a while now. I really like the Hyped Pearl and Hyped Hybrid so I felt like this would be a good progression in the line of Hyped Balls. I would call this ball a work horse with just enough of everything including control. The Hyped Solid has bailed me out at times when I just was not getting a good look on the lanes. I can get to the pocket with good carry with this ball when nothing else seems to shape well on a poorly transitioned pattern. The Hyped Solid is a bit cleaner and angular than my Hustle USA and for me but pretty close in total hook. The Hyped Solid is definitely weaker than my RST-X3 but I can ball down from the X3 to this ball easily. The Hyped Solid isn’t flashy but will get the job done at a good price. The Hyped Solid is forgiving and is a ball I have learned to trust. This ball has been selling very well at our shop.

The Hyped Solid is a work horse.
The price on this ball makes it a great value.
The Hyped Solid rolls very good on tough conditions.

Roto Grip
Hyped Solid

Coverstock:  VTC Solid Reactive
Finish:  3000 Grit Abralon
Core:  Hyped Core
RG:  2.52
Differential:  0.036

Layout: 2 x 6 x 5 - 2LS
Layout Extras:  2 1/8 Finger Depth, "X" - 4 1/2 D and 1 Inch Left

Tester: Rob Kohler (Robbizzle)
PAP 5 1/4 R, 1 D

The Hyped series continues on with the Hyped Solid. If you enjoyed the Hyped series the Hyped Solid is a must have. This solid provides nice traction and a smooth reaction for most medium conditions.

For this particular review I had Rob Kohler test the Hyped Solid v. Hyped Hybrid (4K Fast) on a 42' ft house pattern. Right from the beginning the Hyped Solid allowed Rob to keep his angles in front of him. He had no issue feeling comfortable with the ball and more importantly he had great control off the spot. Rob also commented the Solid was easy to read downlane and repeatability was easy to achieve.

In comparison, the Hyped Hybrid made Rob have to get slightly more left and a bit outside of his comfort zone.  At times he missed the spot downlane and the ball did not quite recover. I noted for Rob that having a ball like the Hyped Solid can be a great asset in the arsenal. A ball that allows you to keep angles in front of you and control at the breakpoint.

I wanted to thank Rob for testing the the two Hyped balls out for me. For the Hyped Solid I do recommend some Storm Reacta Skuff every three to six games to maintain the oob surface of this ball.  The Hyped Solid is a nice addition for any arsenal and you'll likely find a spot in the bag for most medium to dry THS patterns.  It's quickly becoming one of my favorite balls in the bag. Rob also gave two thumbs up for the Hyped Solid from Roto Grip!

Say hello to an IQ Tour on steroids! Roto Grip is brining you the brand new Hyped Solid. Another great addition to the Hyped line with the original Hyped Core wrapped with the VTC Solid Reactive coverstock. This ball has been striking a lot everywhere I go. Kris Prather just shot back to back 300’s a couple days ago with it, so you know it has to be good!
A lot of people have been saying this is a beefed up IQ Tour and I really do see that. Very smooth, very continuous and it handles oil way better than an IQ Tour. Sometimes, my IQ Tour can be too clean and too angular and that is when I would pull this ball out to smooth out that motion on flatter patterns and more clifted house shots. I’m excited to throw this ball more on more patterns and see what this truly does on a wide variety of patterns. Get it while its hot at your local Storm VIP Pro Shop.

Hyped Solid Review by Luke Rosdahl
« Reply #11 on: October 17, 2022, 10:36:16 AM »
The Hyped Solid features the VTC Solid coverstock at a 3000 grit finish, and the Hyped core at a 2.52 RG, and a .036 differential in 15 pounds.  As it shares the same coverstock, the Hyped Solid is very reminiscent of the Hustle Camo, however the extra strength out of the core gives it a stronger roll overall.  It has the same clean, but rolly and round shape throughout the lane.  The Hyped Solid’s most notable feature is the calm and consistent roll, it doesn’t seem to really rev up at any point and take off, nor does it kind of lope down the lane.  It hits the lane and has a very stable and continuous roll, but doesn’t necessarily roll strong or heavily, it allows you to control the overall reaction and is constantly ready to do what you want it to.  It’s medium strength, not quite as strong or early as the IQ Tour Solid, but close enough to almost be a sideways compliment because it does handle angle better.  It shares more in common with the Hyped Pearl than it does with the Hybrid, though the Pearl is longer and a couple boards weaker, they have a similar roll.  The Hybrid is earlier and heavier rolling with more of an arc shape, but they’re all of a similar strength.  The Hyped Solid is not quite a full ball up from the Hustles, Burners, and Electrify Pearl, and not quite a full ball down from an IQ Tour Solid, but is a “solid” compliment to them all.

Roto Grip Hyped Solid review by Trevor Roberts
« Reply #12 on: October 17, 2022, 06:16:16 PM »
Lane Condition
Length: 40
Volume: Medium
Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS

The Hyped Solid is my favorite of the three new Roto Grip releases. I polished mine to give it a little more length. The thing I like about this ball is the smoothness down lane. There is no snap from this ball, just a very controllable roll. In my arsenal, the Hyped Solid is going to fit in right between the Wolverine Dark Moss and Hustle Camo. You will see me throwing it on house shots, lighter volumes of oil, and later in blocks at tournaments. I put my favorite pin up layout on this ball, which is 5 1/4 inches from my PAP. If you want an even weaker reaction for drier shots, you can go pin down. You can’t find a better deal at the price point the Hyped Solid is at!

Hey everyone, I'm back with another ball review, and this time it's for the Roto Grip Hyped Solid and in 15 pounds this ball is wrapped in the VTC solid reactive cover stock and comes 3000-grit polished with an RG of 2.52 and a Diff of .036.
Layout for this ball is 5 X 4 X 1½
There are not many balls that can cover a variety of conditions, especially at an entry level price point. To give a comparison the Roto Grip Hyped Pearl picks up a touch through the front of the lane compared to the Pearl. This two-ball release will be a nice transition when the "benchmark" balls are just too early. The Hybrid and Pearl will naturally be longer and stronger than something like a Hy-Road. Out here we have a couple of centers that are on the high friction lane surface, and this is when I see these balls shine...Some may even say I get Hyped!
BOWLER STYLE: RH - Power Stroker Rev Rate: 320 Ball Speed: 15-16 PAP: 4 7/8 right 5/8 up.

The all new Hyped Solid is going to be an absolute home run! This ball will be good especially for players that are rev dominant, or those who want a weaker solid ball that will allow you to stay closer to the friction. The Hyped Solid features the VTCâ„¢ (Versatile Traction Control) coverstock wrapped around the Hyped Core which has been a stable in the HP2 line in the last couple of years. The Hyped Solid is the third addition to the Hyped line and I have no doubt it will be the best one yet. Go out and get yours today!
