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)

There’s a new MVP in town and he’s got a huge Attitude. Introducing the newest addition to the Roto Grip MVP series, the MVP Attitude. The new MVP Attitude has the same MVP core, but wrapped in a VTC-H20 Hybrid reactive coverstock. What I see out of this new MVP is that it is the strongest and smoothest out of the MVP’s we have so far. This ball is fits perfectly right under the Wild Streak. When the wild streak becomes too strong to keep in front of you and doesn’t give you enough dowlane motion when you have to chase it left, the MVP Attitude is the ball to go to.
To compare it to the rest of the MVP line, you would start out with the new MVP Attitude on the fresh, then go straight into the original MVP and then when a player really needs to open up the lane, you go to the MVP Pearl. Really nice progression out of this series and if you want to be an MVP on the lanes, make sure you get the new MVP Attitude.

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):THS


Cover: VTC-H20 Hybrid
Core: Neutron NXT
Finish: 3000
RG: 2.55
Differential: 0.040

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

Ball Layout: Pin Over Ring 4 3/4 Pin to Pap 1 1/2 Pin Buffer

Roto Grip has added a dull finished hybrid to their MVP line of HP2 balls. The Neutron NXT core has been a great success, showcasing great motion and continuation consistently outperforming its price point. The VTC-H20 Hybrid cover and it's 3000 grit finish adds more mid-lane motion to the line, making it more useful on higher volumes of oil.

I tested the MVP Attitude on a house-shot on a fairly high-friction surface. It did coincide with the house adding a bit of volume to the pattern. The timing worked out to my advantage as I got my hands on the ball that fit perfectly into the spot i needed it. The added volume tended to show up down-lane as opposed to in the front of the lane as was intended. The fronts still hooked but it was easy for the ball to push too far down-lane to the right and not recover. The trick was getting the ball to see the mid-lane without overreacting so that you could start creating angle back to the pocket before reaching the out-of-bounds.

The MVP gives you the ball roll of a solid cover with the continuation of a hybrid. It is clean enough to play the track but continuous enough to play the transition. You don't really run into trouble with it until you have to get in and cover a lot of boards. Even then you can trick it by limiting angle and letting your hand around it a little more.

MVP Attitude Review by Luke Rosdahl

The MVP Attitude is the 3rd MVP in Roto’s HP2 line, and while it’s a hybrid like the original MVP, it’s quite a bit different on the lane.  The MVP was strong, heavy rolling, and really quick on friction.  The Attitude is rolly, but doesn’t feel like it wants to be quite as early despite the sanded cover, and blends the backend part of the lane very well.  It’s very continuous like the previous MVPs, and the shape and look on the lane is familiar, but for me it takes the idea of the original MVP and makes it more usable and effective.  Not as heavy rolling and relentlessly strong on friction, but still rolly, still continuous, and quite versatile.  It’s controlled enough to play straighter, and has enough wheels and continuation to not just play from deep, but be effective from deep.  The Attitude is a quite refined reaction, it’s good at blending cliffs on house patterns, and giving you controllable strength on tougher patterns.

Roto Grip’s HP2 Line of balls have been extremely popular through the bowling community. With last year introduction of the MVP and MVP Pearl the HP2 continued its success. This year we have the same Neutron NXT Core wrapped around the all-new VTC-H20 Hybrid cover, which is 2 parts pearl, and one part solid. I drilled mine 3 x 6 x 2.5.  I choose this layout because I wanted a symmetrical ball that I could keep my angles in front of me on the fresh on longer medium length patterns. My first impression after throwing this ball is that even with the 3 inch pin, this ball doesn’t really burn up. You can still see how much it response in the back part of the lane. It is closer to the MVP Pearl than the MVP reaction wise but picks up the lane about 2-3 feet sooner than the Pearl.

The new MVP Attitude brings you the Neutron NXT core with the VTC-H20 Hybrid Coverstock. What I like most about this ball is its dull surface while still being clean in the front part of the lane.  I drilled mine 4.5 x 70 which is pin down for me in order to combat fresh oil conditions on lower volume and older lane surfaces.  This ball allows me to play more up the lane on the fresh than other balls in the Roto Grip lineup have allowed me to.  This ball reminds me of the Winner Solid from a few years ago that is slightly earlier rolling and a little more continuous.  A pin up version of the attitude will allow you to open the lanes up more to be more versatile of a ball.  This ball has a lot of punch for its price so if you are looking to get this ball as your one ball for league, this is definitely a great choice!

The MVP Attitude brings a benchmark Attitude with it!
« Reply #6 on: August 25, 2020, 07:52:29 AM »
Bowlers Info: RH tweener, PAP 4-1/2 x 7/8 up, 365 RPM, 17* of Axis tilt, 60* of Axis Rotation

Ball Layout: 45 x 4 x 30

Finish: 4000 – Lane shine

The motion of the previous MVP’s, I felt didn’t fit my game as I saw more chuggy and snap off the pattern motion.  HOWEVER, after previewing some videos of the MVP Attitude’s motion, I had to give it a shot……boy I’m super glad I did!!!!  Roto got this hybrid right with 2 parts pearl, 1 part solid, it completely reminds me of a stronger Wrecker, a ball I absolutely loved.  I put a 4” pin on it just above my ring finger and saw a very predictable motion with phenomenal carry.  As I moved in, the ball kept continuation and carry, will be great on medium conditions.  The more I got oil into the ball, the better it got as OOB was a bit strong for me but got better after 5th game with it.  Bottom line, this is may be my new benchmark ball that will be an absolute house shot killer!!!!  This is a lot of ball for the price that you cannot pass up!

Orientation:  Right Handed
Rev Rate:  400 RPM
Speed:  16-17 MPH
PAP:  4 ½ over and ½ up

Location:  Enterprise Park Lanes, Springfield MO
Pattern:  High Volume THS
VLS Layout:  5 x 4 x 2 1/2

Loved the MVP Pearl, but it wasn’t enough at times, and it was a little sharp on the backend.  The Attitude is the ANSWER!  The MVP Attitude is a good 3-4 feet earlier and much smoother at the breakpoint, but still plenty of backend.  I can see the MVP ‘Tude as the first ball out of the bag, and then the MVP Pearl as the go to in transition.  An amazing 1 – 2 combo!

Bowler Specs:
Right Hand. PAP 4” Over 0 up
Rev Rate 400, Average Tilt, low Axis Rotation.
Speed at cameras 16.5 – 17
Layout: 65 x 4.75 x 35 (pin above ring finger)
Review: Incredible Bang for your buck! On the 3 oil patterns I was able to test this ball on (between 39’ and 43’ feet), I couldn’t believe the performance I got out of a ball at this price point. Plenty of hook even on the 43 foot pattern. Typically on a fresh house pattern, you encounter too much bounce off the dry and too much skid in the middle. I didn’t find any of that with this ball. It blended the fresh shot out amazingly well. The 2 part pearl, 1 part solid, allowed the ball to get through the first third of the lane easy, read the mids like it was supposed to, and finished really strong. It was very smooth and heavy rolling through the pins. This ball can be a first ball out of the bag for 75% of league bowlers. Paired with the MVP pearl, they would be a 1-2 punch that would be near impossible to beat. This is a killer ball for anyone looking for a benchmark type reaction without putting a huge dent in your wallet.

Roto Grip MVP Attitude review by Trevor Roberts
« Reply #9 on: August 28, 2020, 09:35:50 AM »
Length: 40
Volume: Medium
Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS

I was very excited for the MVP Attitude’s release because of how much I liked the MVP Pearl. To me, the Attitude picks up a couple feet sooner and covers more boards overall. I generally use the MVP Pearl once the lanes start to break down, but with the MVP Attitude, you don’t have to. You can use this ball on medium to heavy oil conditions as well as some lighter conditions. For me it is very versatile and allows me to play multiple angles on a variety of patterns. The control of this ball reminds me a lot of the Wild Streak which is one of my current favorites. This control gives you a predictable motion while still being strong through the pins.

Layout 45x4x65 rev rate 275 ball speed 14 mph PAP 4 ½ right and 1 up
I chose this layout is to give me a better look on medium  conditions to transition from my Idol Solid, which shares the same layout, I'm about 5 boards different overall but I get a very similar ball motion overall. The Idols being just a little earlier with the lower RG and higher diff.  The MVP brings much higher RG and lower differential giving me an awesome balance for medium conditions.

Drilling 45x4x65 rev rate 450 ball speed 17 PAP 3 ¾ right 1 up
I went with this layout to help worth with this balls natural attributes with the VTC coverstock used on the Hustle PBR we saw better control. So I went with a medium pin down layout to replace my mvp solid from last year. I was looking for a ball to read the lanes a bit more in the mids and not give up in the oil but not be a boat anchor in the friction. In comes the MVP line, amazing hook potential for the price point and reliability I can trust on a wide variety of lane conditions.

MVP Attitude - 80 x 2 1/2 x 25 - 1500 grit pad - VTC-H20 hybrid reactive coverstock
Testing condition: 44ft Mo Pinel created THS on older SPL ( earlier 2000's).
What the leagues started up, I thought to drill this ball similar to my MVP that I used last year in the league. It was sanded to 2000 as I needed to slow up more in the front part of the lane. With the updated cover of VTC-H20 and the proven Neutron NXT core, this ball is actually stronger than my Wild Streak from the mid lane to the back end. Having the pin 2 1/2inches from my PAP kept the flare down and allowed a more consistent backend and roll on it. Did not jump off of the pattern like the OG MVP would even at 2000 grit. It has purple in the coverstock which even makes me happier! Will be a great benchmark ball like the IQ Tour Solid, or even the Idol!

Gender : Female
Rev Rate : 315
Ball Speed: 16.5 mph
P.A.P : 4 3/16 over  7/16 up

The MVP Attitude is by far my favourite of the 3 from the hp2 line. Not taking anything away from the others, I just found that this matched up with my style the best. The attitude comes out of box at 3000 grit finish which has more grit then the original MVP or the MVP Pearl, it’s cover helps it get into a roll early through the front part of the lane and finish strong through the pins. I was pleasantly surprised with how strong this ball was with it being a “medium” end ball. If you’re looking for great performance and not looking to spend a fortune, the Attitude won’t disappoint, this ball is definitely the best bang for your buck.

I drilled my MVP ATTITUDE up 55 x 4.5 x 30. I left it box finish which is 3000 abralon. This is usually my go to lay out for most gear I drill up. This was highly recommended by my ball driller as he has drilled a couple for himself and likes them both. He said this one is a sleeper.

I used my MVP ATTITUDE on some house shots around 38-40 feet and also in a PBA50 Regional. I brought it out when the lanes started to get a little chopped up in the track and needed to get some push with good down lane motion. That is exactly what I got out of it.

I put my MVP ATTITUDE against some others like the ELECTRIFY PEARL and MVP PEARL. The MVP ATTITUDE is definitely earlier motion on the lane than both the ELECTRIFY AND MVP PEARLS. The MVP PEARL had more down lane shape, but the ATTITUDE had a good motion also.

The MVP ATTITUDE should be a good pick up for players looking for a ball that you can leave with a smoother dull surface (2000-4000 abr) on and get more length than the big cover balls like the AXIOM or RG UFO but still get good motion before you pull out the pearls or low diff balls like the IQ TOUR.
