In sports we are always told to hustle well now Roto Grip is providing a line of bowling balls that will do just that on the lanes. The Roto Grip Hustle HSB takes the renowned Hustle core which has a medium RG design and lower differential and pairs it with the VTC-H18 (Versatile Traction Control-Hybrid 18) coverstock then is finished with a 1500-grit polish. This combination offers a smooth earlier midlane motion, with more stability down lane, and with more traction and is best on light to medium oil conditions.

Color: Silver Pearl/Black Solid
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: VTC-H18 Hybrid
Core: Hustle (14#-16#) (Lightbulb core for 13# & 12# and a puck core for 11# & 10#)
Finish: 1500-grit Polished
RG: 2.53 (15# ball)
Differential: 0.030 (15# ball)
Recommended Lane Condition: Lighter 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.

Have to love the Hustle line. For the price point this is a great ball .. Out of the box this ball is a 1500 polished hybrid. Hit it with a 1000 abralon by hand and immediately loved the reaction. On a house shot it gets through the heads really reads the mids well and def turns the corner for me. When this ball makes the turn it goes and strong through the pins. Also a big fan of the color scheme on this ball looks great going down the lane
