Wild Streak
« on: December 18, 2019, 01:38:16 PM »
The Roto Grip Wild Streak introduces the Mutated Rotary core which has a higher RG symmetrical shape which helps to give more length and down lane shape in the HP3 line for Roto Grip. This ball also introduces the SureTrax-S19 coverstock that provides more traction than eTrax but goes longer than MicroTrax. The Wild Streak performs best on medium to medium heavy oil conditions and offers a different reaction than what we usually see from the Roto Grip HP3 line of bowling balls.

Color: Purple/Grey/Black
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Core: Mutated Rotary (14-16#)
Coverstock: SureTrax-S19 Solid Reactive
Finish: 3000-grit Pad
RG: 2.60 (for 15# ball)
Differential: 0.048 (for 15# ball)
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium to Medium/Heavy Oil

Roto Grip Wild Streak

50 x 5 x 25

This ball is incredibly unique.  I am a speed dominant player with a lot of axis rotation and tilt.  Higher RG balls typically donít match up the best to my game.  This ball was a total surprise to me.  This ball is a 100% necessity in all tournament players bags.  Quite often I experience high friction lane surfaces where the ďbiggerĒ balls burn up too easily even on fresh.  This ball mimics the bigger ball because of its strong cover and really blends out the wet/dry laterally and front the back.  It is a lot of bang for your buck, you will be surprised how much overall motion this ball produces.  So far, I have had success with this ball on medium and shorter length patterns and have gotten use out of it on a big variety of surfaces and conditions.  This is a ball I will use on fresh quite heavy and medium volume patterns on older surfaces, short patterns, and wet dry lane conditions.  Speed dominant players should like this one!  Rev dominant I would consider bringing the surface of the ball up and/or drilling this ball pin down!

Itís a Keeper!!

I have to admit that I wasnít too crazy about this ball when I first got it. However, I stuck with it and the more Iíve thrown it the more I like it. I didnít adjust the surface any but I think for me at least it is a ball that needs to get some oil into the cover for it to be great.

For me the Wild Streak is most comparable to the Idol. For me the Wild Streak has a bit more down lane motion when the Idol starts to loose energy or I have to play bigger angles.

The Wild Streak has definitely become a staple in my tournament bag.

Roto Grip Wild Streak
Layout: 55 x 4 1/2 x 40
Ball specs: 3000 grit - SureTrax-S19 solid  / Mulated Rotary Core
Using on SPL with a more blended pattern, this ball was a HUGE strike machine. Was able to play around the other 3 lefties, by moving to 35 and looking at 10-12 in the breakpoint area. Ball was medium in length strength but still very good going through the pins. Similar results were found on the older HPL with less blended pattern, with using the same starting point, but changing the breakpoint area to be around boards 5-7 and moved my eyes further down lane so that the ball roll even later. Will be my solid benchmark ball for a long time I feel.

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):THS

This ball is Tournament ready straight out of the box! I love the down lane motion which goes a little longer for me due to the coverstock which is amazing! I can play this ball on any line! I have thrown it straight up 10 or moved hard left and went over 20 and it seems to find the pocket 9 out of 10 times even with only 6-7 out of 10 being a good throw from me! I think its time for everyone to get Wild and add this to your arsenal ASAP!

Wild Streak
Solid Sure Trax S19 Cover with the Mutated Rotary Core.  The Wild Streak has one of the most versatile cover stocks that I have bowled with.  It can easily be adjusted for multiple oil patterns.  I find that the Wild Streak is a little straighter than the Original Idol and a little stronger in the back part of the lane.  The Wild Streak is a ball that every tournament bowler should have in their arsenal.  In my opinion it was one of the bowling balls that flew under the radar.
