Box Finish
4 1/2 x 4 1/2 with extra hole

I was having a bit of carry issues on a Wet THS on older original Anvilane with dead backends. My RSX was giving me a good reaction but I was leaving a few too many corners. Drilled the RSP same layout as my RSX I was rewarded with back to back 700's.

I also used it on a medium length Sport condition and it worked exceptionally well. The coverstock provides the added traction that takes the over-skid out of some dense Sport patterns.

The RSP gives me the same look as the RSX just a little bit earlier and not as snappy. The ball still carries tons of power into the pins. Teammates and competitors have commented on the flying lumber.

The RSP has a different on lane look than the Oracle Vision. I think you are doing yourself a disservice if you do not carry both.

Drilled mine up 4 x 3 with the pin about 5/8 of an inch above the ring finger. Ball has a 3/4 inch weight hole on my axis. I threw the ball tonight on our new mwns league house shot. Even with more oil on the lanes this ball was still too strong to be practical but i decided to trow it anyway. I was able to play real deep (20-25 at the arrows) with the ball and swing it to the 5 board and it still roared back. Only problem was it was so strong that the corners, 9 pins and 8 pins were tough to carry lol.  Tries some shots keeping it tight in the heavy oil and it still made such a huge move on the back end that it was tough to carry. I can't wait to throw this on the condition it's designed for.  With the addition of this ball to the RS line it gives you a great arsenal for a quitr reasonable price. Another great ball from ROTO!!!!!

Drilled this ball up last week.  16#, pin is about 2".  Placed the pin under the ring finger, and kicked the cg off to the right about an 1" or so from my center of grip.  Works out to be about a 5x4 for me, no weight hole needed.  Out of the box, this cover looked too dull for me, so I put some polish on it before I drilled it to help get some length, due to the shorter pin.  First off, even with the polish on this ball, it still read the lane a little earlier than I anticipated.  The ball revs up nice, and for me, gets decent length and has a very strong arc to the pocket. Definately an aggressive piece.  Last week in league I struggled with carry the first two games.  I had drilled this ball that night, so I decided to throw it the last game.  I pulled this out and shot 279, leaving one solid ten pin.  This week, I decided to start with this ball, and wound up shooting 279-279-279 for an 837, just a few ten pins.  The ball hits very well, and when in the pocket, the pins wind up in the pit.  If the shot is a hair less than flush, this ball will definately throw the lumber around and carry the dime.  I was surprised how easy this ball adjusted to the lane break down.  I had expected it to jump immediately once the oil started to disappear, but this ball held the line all night.  Slight changes in hand position, and a small move of the feet, and stayed in the pocket.  For me, this ball looks like, and reacts like the El Nino 2000, which I really liked.  Overall I think this ball is much stronger, and definately worth the bang for the buck.  An outstanding piece for the price, and will now be my benchmark ball.

Drilled 3 1/2 pin out ball with Pin 5" from PAP, 1 3/4 up from centerline, MB 3 1/2 from PAP.  No hole was needed as statics were 1/2 side and 1/4 thumb.  I threw it in box surface on a couple of different patterns second shift after the push had started... decent amount of carrydown on old Brunswick synthetics.  This ball was fairly smooth through the front and made a strong, sweeping recovery with amazingly good entry angle for a particle piece.  Three sets on similar conditions saw the same results:  Easy striking through a game and a half with minimal adjustment, then a bit of a move left with the breakpoint in the same area, and then more striking.

I threw it this past weekend with Brunswick Rough-Buff polish on the #3 pattern (good guardian) for the first three games and saw very much the same reaction only a bit more angular.  Shots missed to the right recovered and hit well, while shots missed inside a bit seemed to be fairly forgiving and energy retention was fantastic.

This is my first "high performance" Roto in quite a few years and I'm impressed.  I think I'll be putting holes in more of these soon.

What a smooth hard hitting ball that takes out the 7 pin for this 68 year old left-hander. Had this baby drilled with the pin 1 inch below ring finger with the CG 3 inches lower. Out of box the ball had a smooth inside out reaction. 1st game was 279 with afternoon house shot. The past 3 weeks, have had 7 league 700's. Week-end of Oct.15th, shot 721-744-791 in Az. classic tournament qualifier's. This past week-end in Valley of Sun Senior Tournament the ball gave me 300-780 in singles, 279-751 dbls. 2174 Ale.(its got to be the ball)... This ball will be next to my Oracle Vision in the bag for a 1-2 Pearl Particle punch. I've had some team & league bowler's asking about the ball & can't believe its a Mid-Range & priced ball.   Larry Hoffman, Roto-Grip Advisory Staff Member.

This is a very impressive ball for the price. Got this drilled for a goof, wanted to try it out. I layed it out, fairly strong with a 3˝ x 4˝ (cg kicked left). No hole. Ball flares nice and really carries well. Comapred to my Paradigm and other balls, this layout produces a better carry percentage while playing inside, say 17 to 12. It has enough left to make the corner and get the dimes out. The coverstock and core matchup is dead-on. These guys really have a winner in this ball, order one up today. Can't go wrong for the price.

15 lb. Pin above the ring finger, CG kicked out

I have had great luck with the RS line, and this one is no exception.  In this day and age, with the backends stripped every day, this is the ball for fresh conditions.  It is great when you watch other equipment over react when it hits the dry, and have an incredibly smooth transition from oil to dry with the RSP, along with the RSX.  I have been asked many time, how I can control my equipment, simple answer, Roto Grip.  I have used the RSP on a house shot and scored, on a sport shot and scored, this ball is the answer to a lot of conditions.  League or tournament, this ball stays in my bag.

15 LB. I place the pin above the ring finger i kick the cg out to 2:30 .
I tried it dull right out the box. And u talk about hook it hook very earlier and still never lost its engery including the backend, on the house pattern .So i shine it up with Storm X-shine and it made a huge difference.I was looking for the skid through the front and the mid-lane and i found.I see this ball reminds me alot of the RS-X accept this ball grabs the lane little more in the front and midlane . I really like this ballwhen the oil has carry down and the backend are very tame it still go through the tight backends. I recommend this ball to anybody and everybody that want something that is aggressive .This ball is very readable all diffent types of conditions out on the market.

I recently got the RSP. Stats are 16 lb with 4 to 4 1/2" pin and 3.26oz of top weight. I am a stroker with medium revs and a high track. I was looking for something with a little more recovery in carrydown than the RSX or RS1 gives. Boy is this ball phenominal. My comfort level is usually a down and in, some times with a slight swing. I decideded that this ball would probably hook too much and too early dull so I polished with storm step 3 and Moonshine. I pre-bowled today for Thursday league and shot 245, 300, and 256  for an 801!!!! This ball will carry from most any angle. I also have the Oracle Vision and I feel this ball is far stronger!!!!!

Roto Grip Rules!!!!

Thanks Hank and Roger. Keep up the good work!!!!!

The RSP is a great addition!

Stronger than the RS-X.  Very similar to the Oracle Vision.  Except a little more angular.  Great ball when lanes are in transition or peferct for sport patterns.  The rotary III core is definately one of the better engines and the guys at Roto Grip continue to tweak it to perfection.  Definately look for medium to heavy patterns.  As the coverstock is to strong for dry.

I drilled mine up to hook stop. With the pearl particle cover it works the way I want. I find I can use it when my RS-X just doesn't want to make the turn or has too much of a jump. Grab this ball and I watch it rev up in the midlane, give me a nice smooth transition, and just hold line. This ball hits as hard the rest of the RS line and is a versatile as the rest. The ball is one of the best mid priced balls I've every drilled up for me or any of my customers.

Ball specs – 15 lbs 5 oz, 4.38 top weight, 3 inch pin.

This ball arrived with more top weight than what I usually drill.  I left the 800 out of box finish but added some polish.  What a great looking orb when shined.  This RSP was drilled with a 4.5” X 75 degree layout, pin just above ring finger and mass bias just below thumbhole.  

The RSP is surprisingly clean through the fronts (displayed a little bit of lope probably due to the high top weight), had a strong mid lane read and a strong continuation on the back end.  The RSP was a little sooner and stronger in the mid lane with a similar (slightly stronger) back end look as the Oracle Vision, which is drilled about the same. (Please refer to my Oracle Vision review)

The RSP’s mid lane read is different enough from the Oracle Vision’s to warrant having both pearl particles in your bag.

This ball is 5x5 layout for me . This ball with this layout is a ball I use when i can't go left to right with another ball or I have to keep the ball in front of me . Definite one of the harder hitting balls Rotogrip has to offer

Drilled the pin 5" from PAP and the CG 4 1/2" from PAP.  I had to lightly scuff the ball to help give it some traction in the oil.  To be honest I had a little trouble with the ball quiting early on the back ends, then I put an extra hole 5" over and 2" down and what a difference it made.  The ball drives through the pins and carries great.  The cover stock is veyr manageable.  You can scuff it or shine it.  The ball rolls very evenly and works great on the wetest sport conditions that I've found.  This ball is now one of my favorite balls.
