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 3TP was designed to be different. This ball takes a medium RG/ low differential core and combines it with the VTC-P18 Pearl Reactive coverstock to produce a ball that increases traction while storing energy when facing light oil conditions while still offering a break on the backend.

Color: Purple/Violet/Plum (3-Tone Purple)
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: VTC-P18 Pearl Reactive
Core: Hustle (14#-16#) (Lightbulb core for 13# & 12# and a puck core for 11# & 10#)
Ball Finish: 1500-grit Polished
RG: 2.53 (15# ball)
Differential: 0.030 (15# ball)
Recommended Lane Condition: Light to Medium Oil

Ball Review:
The Hustles will be a great option on those lower to medium volume oil patterns or transitioned lanes where the fronts have gone away.
The Hybrid will be a smoother more controllable reaction than the pearl whereas the latter will provide cleaner/more angular motion downlane.
I did a pin down layout on the hybrid as I would want that as my first go to ball to keep my angles in front of me. Plus the solid within the hybrid allows this additional control.
On the 2 pearls I placed a pin down and pin up on each to see the different shot shapes. With the pin down compared to the hybrid I saw a lot more length and responsiveness downlane than the hybrid. With the pin up pearl compared to the pin down pearl there was definitely a lot more length and angle to that ball.
Wtih each of the 3 new Hustles there will be a step down from each ball - Hybrid to pin down pearl to pin up pearl. Those who were a fan of the previously released Hustles or those looking for a weaker/cleaner piece in their arsenal the newly released Hustles will be a great option to choose from.

Hustle 3TP Review by Lonnie Pemberton

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):THS


Cover: VTC-P18 Pearl
Weightblock: Hustle
Ball Finish: 1500 Polish
RG: 2.53
Differential: 0.030

Right-Handed Tweener
Speed: 12-13 mph
Rev Rate: 315
PAP: 4 7/8 Right 3/8 Up

Ball Layout: Pin over Middle Finger 55 X 6 X 45

The New Hustle 3TP is the cleanest version of this great HP1 line to date. The Pearl VTC-P18 cover gets this ball down-lane cleanly on even the worst lane beds. The difference between the 3TP and the Ink (also a very clean ball) is the more controllable down-lane move and added length.

I drilled the 3TP specifically for a house with high friction lane beds and medium volume. The carry-down is horrendous and the fronts start out hooking and just get worse as you bowl. This new Hustle exceeded all expectations, not only clearing the front but allowing me to stand right and play up the track. The ability to play right on this pattern is crucial as they get more over/under as you go left and your carry suffers for it.

This is a great option for rev-dominant and lower speed players. I can see me recommending this ball to alot of our senior customers as well as two-hand/no thumb players. This ball keeps the right side of the lane in play WAAAY longer than any other performance ball I've ever thrown.

Roto Grip Hustle 3TP


Weight Block: Hustle™ Core

Factory Finish: 1500-grit Polished

Radius of Gyration: 2.53

Differential: 0.030

With the release of 3 new Hustle's, 1 hybrid and 2 pearls, I figured a comparison between these and the Hustle INK would be the best way to review them.

The Hustle 3TP is the most skid/flip of any other current Hustle, and once again has packed a lot of performance in a low price point ball. The price point would make a buyer assume it is a light oil piece but if you are looking for that, look towards the Storm Tropical Surge. The Hustle 3TP will be as much on a typical house shot as will will be on lighter oil. If I were using my Hustle-only lineup for a THS league, I could see the 3TP being my game 3 ball more often than not.

The 3TP gets length with ease and gives a nice, quick turn when it hits the friction. I drilled mine to move a touch earlier than my hustle ink, AU, and HSB.

My Hustle-only arsenal was built as follows:

HSB early/strongest/smooth

INK long/strong/smooth

AU long/medium/slightly more angle than above

3TP longest/medium/most angle of the group

****AU and 3TP left at box finish, drilled differently****

I was really excited when the new Hustles where announced! The Hustle Ink has been one of my go to balls on dryer lanes. I drilled up the 3TP and this ball hasn’t disappointed me. I drilled mine with a 3 x 3 layout. Picks up faster in the mid lane and a smooth motion down lane. A great compliment to my Ink and for anyone looking to add a ball to your lineup this is a great choice!

Roto-grip has revamped their Hustle line and it is a nice breath of fresh air. The New Hustle 3TP is one of the two newest Hustle Pearls to be released. The new hustles handle dry lanes better than the older hustles for me. The older hustles still had an amazing strength to be an HP1 line but the VTC-P18 coverstock on the 3TP does not overreact for me when it sees friction.
My traditional pin in the ring layout comes out to be 61x4-3/8x58. This ball allows me to move to around the 16 board and play up the first arrow. If I feed it out further than that it still makes it back to the pocket with ease without jumping through the face.
For me this ball will be better on light oil or short sport shot patters. It needs to see friction to make the turn into the pocket, but it is very predictable in it motion.

This new pearl Hustle is the most skid/flip of any other current Hustle, and once again has packed a lot of performance in a low price point ball. These newer pearl Hustles seem slightly weaker than their previously released counterparts and I am very happy to see that. I see this ball being great for when the lanes start hooking in the front or when bowling on very worn lane surfaces.
