MVP Attitude
« on: August 06, 2020, 09:11:13 AM »
This Roto Grip MVP bowling ball has some attitude. The Roto Grip MVP Attitude Hybrid Reactive bowling ball uses the Neutron NXT core and the VTC-H20 Hybrid Reactive coverstock. With a higher RG and medium differential, the Neutron NXT core offers ample length as well as down lane motion for any bowling style. The coverstock formula creates more midlane traction without losing it's response to friction at the back of the lane. This ball is ideal for medium oil and was designed to clear the front of the lane while not skidding as much as it's pearl predecessor but still reacts well to friction.

Color: Golden Pearl/Violet Pearl/Purple Solid
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: VTC-H20 Hybrid Reactive
Core: Neutron NXT
Finish: 3000-grit
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium Oil
RG: 2.55 (15# ball)
Differential: 0.040 (15# ball)

Layout: 60 x 1 ½” x 35

I drilled my MVP Attitude with one thing in mind: control and aggressive mid lane roll for fresh lanes with dry backends. A “control ball” was something that was missing from my arsenal, and this ball (with this layout) fills that need. I am able to keep my lines tight and “down & in” when the fronts are juicy and the backends are flying. Admittedly, the short pin layout does limit the versatility of the Attitude for me – it does not allow me to get left and open the lane up.  When the fronts start to hook, I switch to the MVP Pearl or Electrify Hybrid.

The MVP Attitude is the latest of the MVP line and to me is the best. The Attitude gives me great control down lane on medium oil patterns. What stands out most to me is the versatility. My Attitude is drilled with the pin under ring finger (4.5” to PAP) and with this layout gives me medium length and medium response. To me the Attitude reminds me of the Wild Streak but just a smaller piece.

Introducing Roto Grips newest addition to the MVP line, the MVP Attitude! The MVP Attitude features the VTC-H20 Hybrid Reactive Coverstock wrapped around the Neutron NXT Core. I am definitely a big fan of this ball! This ball reads the midlanes and,retains plenty of energy for the backends and, continues through the pins. I personally like to use this ball when I need something to get through the fronts cleanly and, isn't to jumpy off the spot

MVP Attitude - A Best Buy!
« Reply #19 on: November 01, 2020, 10:24:03 AM »
Ball Specs:
Roto Grip MVP Attitude
Coverstock Type Hybrid Reactive
Weight Block Neutron NXTâ„¢ Core (Symmetrical)
Violet / Golden / Purple
Finish 3000-grit
Layout 45 x 4 x 45

Bowler Specs:
Right Hand. PAP 5” Over 1/2 up
Rev Rate 300. Tilt 20. Rotation 50.
Speed at cameras 15.5

The Roto Grip MVP Attitude is really a fun ball to roll. The colors are vibrant which gives it a unique look going down the lane. The ball motion is well suited for medium conditions but this ball takes surface adjustments as good as any ball I have ever seen. You can have multiple looks by adding surface or smoothing out and adding polish. The MVP Attitude makes a sharp back end move that bowlers want to see and provides excellent carry. This may be the best preforming ball for the price point available right now. If you buy an Attitude you will get a lot of bang for the buck. We have drilled this ball for many styles with great success. We even had a senior lady shoot her first two 600 series in over a year within two weeks after buying this ball. I have already had some nice scores with this ball just rolling it here and there to see what it is capable of. The Attitude has impressed me with how I can get more or less hook than box with surface changes and alter the shape. The Attitude hooks a bit more than my Wild Streak and has more back end. I put the total hook of this ball between my Hustle PBR and Rubicon. I will put this ball up against higher priced balls any time for performance and score.

The Attitude is a nice addition to the MVP Line.
The look of the ball is unique and eye catching.
The Attitude may be the best buy in bowling balls available.

The Roto Grip MVP Attitude is impressively strong ball at the HP2 line pricepoint.  It reads the lane very well, gets through the fronts clean, reads the midlane well and has a strong finish on the backend.  It allows me to use a lower end ball on the fresh. The MVP Attitude is the ball to use early then to switch to the MVP or MVP Pearl as they dry out. Hitting Power is great like every Roto Grip Ball.

Roto Grip MVP Attitude Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

The latest addition to the HP2 line at Roto Grip is the MVP Attitude.  After drilling the MVP pearl and having a lot of success with it, I was excited to see a solid version of the MVP be added.  The Attitude fits nicely in the line between the high performance balls that are typically used on fresh patterns and the Hustle series which is normally used when patterns blend out or there’s more friction on the lane.  The MVP Attitude can be a successful ball for all types of players.

I’ve drilled one Attitude so far and think it rolls great.  I mapped it out as 4.5 x 4 and I left the surface alone.  With an RG of 2.55 and a differential of 0.040, the Attitude digs hard in the mid-lane and has a slower response time compared to other balls such as the MVP pearl, Hustle RAP, and Axiom pearl.  I’ve had the most success with the Attitude when the lanes are a bit flatter and the high performance balls simply read the lane too early. 

I’ve seen all styles and rev-rates have success with the MVP Attitude.  If you feel like you have a gap between your UFO, Axiom, and Hustle RAP, the MVP Attitude should be the next ball you drill.

This MVP really reads the midlane for me as good as anything I have in the bag. The combination of the midlane and a little slower response then the rest of my arsenal gives me an option I really didn't have. Even with those characteristics the carry is as good as any other ball I have.

Roto Grip MVP Attitude

Cover: VTC-H20 Hybrid

Core: Neutron NXT

Roto Grip has some of the best balls for the price and the MVP Attitude may be the most ball for the price.

The 3rd ball in the MVP line and easily the strongest of the group.

It is listed as an HP2 ball but if you didn't know it you wouldn't believe it. This is the strongest HP2 ball I have thrown.

This ball revs slow, reads midlane, and brings a smooth/strong turn with a lot of power behind it.

It reminds me of the Storm Super Soniq, a favorite of mine.

Add the MVP Attitude to the Hustle PBR and you have a great house shot 1-2 punch at a great price.

Roto Grip's history of fun per dollar success continues with the MVP Attitude! With an updated version of the original MVP's cover, the MVP Attitude changes things up a bit as well with a 3000-grit factory sanded surface. The familiar Neutron NXT core from the MVP and MVP Pearl makes its return though, which brings a ton of familiarity in how the ball responds downlane. If you want something with a bit more traction and blend than an MVP or MVP Pearl... this ball is for you! If you want something that'll roll heavier through the pins but provide a similar level of strength to an !Q Tour Solid... this ball is for you! If you want to only bring one ball to league and just have some fun bowling... this ball is for you!

The newest addition to the MVP is much stronger than the previous released.

It is listed as an HP2 ball but if you didn't know it you wouldn't believe it. This is the strongest HP2 ball I have thrown.

This ball revs slow, reads midlane, and brings a smooth/strong turn with a lot of power behind it. If you're looking for a ball that's a step up from a Hustle this ball is a great choice!

The MVP Attitude is a  hybrid release in the HP2 line of balls from Roto Grip. The Attitude uses the same Neutron NXT weight block that was in the previous two MVP releases which yields an Rg of 2.55 and a differential of 0.040 in 15lb balls. This version has a stronger cover than the previous two MVPs, called VTC-H20 and comes from the factory with 3000 grit abralon finish. The color combination of golden pearl, violet pearl, and purple solid makes for a two parts pearl to one part solid cover.

I drilled the MVP Attitude with a 4.5” pin and a 2.5” pin buffer. Comparing the Attitude to my original MVP (4.5 X 2), the Attitude hooks earlier and has more backend continuation. The more aggressive cover and box finish of the Attitude allows it to handle more oil than the first MVP (polished cover and also a hybrid). Comparing the Attitude to my MVP pearl (5 X 2), the Attitude slows down quicker, has a more rounded shape through the backend. The little longer pin buffer seems to allow the Attitude to not spin up too fast, which rounds off the shape downlane and creates more continuation. The cover on the Attitude is fairly aggressive for a lower price point ball. Even with the factory surface of 3000 grit, the Attitude doesn’t slow down too soon, allowing for downlane change of direction. I have kept the surface finish at around the same matte finish that the 3000 abralon box finish produces.

The MVP Attitude is a ball that can give the user some decent board coverage without breaking the bank on a high end ball. I like how the Attitude fits in the bag. It is a ball that I can move left if I need more dry boards to get it to slow down, or can chase the pattern in, and still get the ball to corner and face up toward the pocket. The MVP Attitude has a nice amount of pattern coverage, which is something that I look for when filling in my arsenal. Thank you for taking the time to read my review of the MVP Attitude. As always with Roto Grip, OWN IT!

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):THS


Likes:pairs well with the MVP Pearl


MVP Attitude from RotoGrip. I bought this ball to pair with my MVP Pearl. Layout 4x4x2 on both balls. The MVP Attitude was created to be an earlier version of the already popular and successful MVP line of balls. I could start the night with the Attitude and when it would get to be too much I could step down to the Pearl very easily. The MVP Attitude is one of the best bang for the buck balls out there as RotoGrip has released another budget friendly ball with a ton of hook.

The MVP Attitude is a hybrid release in the HP2 line of balls from Roto Grip. Loving the MVP pearl i decided to give this a try. Boy do i love the shape of this ball. The pear was super angular for me down lane and at times over under. The attitude is a little sooner for me and controlled which is a nice compliment to the pearl. This ball will fit in great to any bag as fill for a reliable predictable when things are getting tough. Considering the price range its a easy choice

New Roto Grip RST X-1
Review by Dunk300 on 27 Nov 2020review stating New Roto Grip RST X-1Roto Grip RST X-1
Layout: 4.5 X 4 X 2.5 Storm Vector Layout
Rev Rate: 325 rpm, 7 degree of axis tilt, 40 degree of axis rotation
Testing Information: 41-foot THS (medium volume)
Kegel Machine – Brunswick Anvilane

Well, I wasn’t exactly excited about purchasing this one based on some of the early reviews that I saw if I am Read more about review stating New Roto Grip RST X-1going to be completely honest. However, there was something about the nostalgic appeal of the Roto Star Tour X-1 bowling ball that captured my attention. I remember being a kid at Mexico Lanes and not very many people owned a Roto Grip ball. They were almost thought of as that other ball company. Not a part of the big machine of Brunswick, AMF, or Columbia. This fact always intrigued me about the early Roto Grip bowling balls since I never owned one. Fast forward 30 years, now I have my chance to see what the mystery was all about.

The Roto Grip RST X-1 utilizes the MicroTrax hybrid reactive coverstock and the new RST core. The specifications are middle of the road so has the potential to be a very versatile ball (right in my wheel house). Based on the previous videos I mentioned above, I decided to shine the RST X-1. I found the secret sauce for me. The RST X-1 was clean through the fronts and a noticeable change of direction on the back end. Maybe a pinch less snap than my Storm AstroPhysix. The distance between the oil rings was standard so no differences there. I was able to take hand out and play right on the oil line. I was also able to move in a zone and slow hook it. The carry was good from both places on the lane. Hence, the versatility is definitely a strength of the RST X-1. The shelf appeal is not going to jump off the shelf to the novice bowler but there is beauty in this ball. In addition, there are many of us that like the look of a solid ball going down the lane (lack of revs might be part of the reason but not all of it. Lol). I hope this ball doesn’t get lost in the new releases with brighter colors. This is going to be my sleeper pick for the next 6-month period (as the Wildstreak was and is). Schlem should be proud of this one as he brought the nostalgia feel of the Roto Star Tour brand back. Great job!
