The Roto Grip MVP bowling ball is an MVP among mid performance balls. This ball introduces the Neutron NXT core and the VTC-H19 Hybrid coverstock. The core in this ball was derived from the successful Neutron core but with a higher RG that provides ample reaction at the breakpoint. The coverstock formula allows more response to friction at the back of the lane than previous mid performance hybrid coverstocks from Roto Grip. This ball is a go to ball when the lanes transition and a stronger ball starts to break too early. This ball will also be great when up against lane conditions with more friction.

Color: Orange Pearl/Blue Solid
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: VTC-H19 Hybrid Reactive
Core: Neutron NXT
Finish: 1500-grit Polished
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium Oil
RG: 2.55**
Differential: 0.040**
** RG and Diff are based off of 15 lb. balls

Length: Medium

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): Variety

PAP: 5 over and 1/4 up

Drilling: Pin thru the ring finger

I've always been a big fan of hybrid bowling balls, and this ball does not disappoint. A lot of people compare this ball to the Wrecker series, and there are quite a few similarities, but I think this ball is a bigger Winner. I think the ball motions of the Winner and the MVP are so close. Both balls are really clean, and have a lot of backend, but the MVP is so STRONG.

I see myself rolling the MVP when transition hits. Once the heads start to dry up, and I have to get out of my solid coverstocks, then the MVP will be the ball I go to.

MVP Review

I think itís safe to say that the MVP is kind of a ďblast from the past.Ē The MVP is todays Wrecker only modified for todays lane conditions and volumes of oil. The MVP has the same core featured in the Wrecker (Neutron Core) just modified slightly and wrapped around a Hybrid coverstock. The MVP has a very similar motion to the Wrecker but I would say it is a little bit earlier and shapes more down lane.

The MVP can also be used on heavier patterns where as the original wrecker would shoot through the oil and cause a lot of over under. The MVP is best used when you need to get out of a solid symmetrical and you still need that smooth and controllable shape, but from a weaker cover bowling ball. The MVP is the perfect fit and it handles surface changes really well so it could be used from light oil, to heavier oil when the time comes to use it.

The MVP is a special piece with a unique shape that helps the Roto Grip line be so wide spread and gives all types of bowling styles something thatíll match up to their game.

I drilled my Roto Grip MVP 5.5 x 5.5 x 3, this ball gives me that strong look later in blocks but with enough pop down lane. Iíve used this ball on a variety of  patterns so far ranging from 36 ft too 41 ft later in blocks. This ball reminds me a lot of a Wrecker and how much it hooks for its price point. You wont be disappointed with this lower end ball !
