Roto Grip wants to get you hyped up with this mid-performance bowling ball! The Roto Grip Hyped Hybrid introduces the Hyped core which features a low RG. This core allows the ball to offer more overall motion than Roto Grip's entry-level balls but a little less than their upper-mid performance bowling balls. The coverstock on the Hyped Hybrid is the VTC (Versatile Traction Control) Hybrid Coverstock which provides durability and consistency on medium oil conditions.

Color: Chrome/Pink/Purple Solid
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: VTC Hybrid Reactive
Core: Hyped
Finish: 1500-grit Polished
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium
RG: 2.52 (15# ball)
Differential: 0.036 (15# ball)

Roto Grip Hyped is well…..HYPED UP!

Bowlers Info: RH tweener, PAP 4-1/2 x 7/8 up, 365 RPM, 17* of Axis tilt, 60* of Axis Rotation

Ball Layout: 40 x 5.25 x 45

Finish: OOB

For those of us you that remember the Nomad line and wished it would be reintroduced, well, this is pretty close to that!  Welcome the Roto Grip Hyped Hybrid!  I’ve been looking forward to this one and believe me it didn’t disappoint!  The VTC Coverstock is pretty aggressive even with 1500 polish on it, it can read the midlane pretty aggressively.  I went with a taller, longer pin layout and kicked the CG right 45* as I wanted to use this to really open up my angles.  Normally I hit 1500 OOB with some surface, but this ball did not need that whatsoever.  This ball reads sooner than expected, not skid flippy mind you, but a definitely a strong motion off the backend that goes thru the pins with a certain aggression!  This ball is cleaner and a bit longer than the Zen, but more backend reaction which is great when my Zen runs out of room as I move inside but still want a bigger piece before moving down to a UC2 or IQ Tour Emerald.  There will be lots of Hype over the Hyped, so go pre-order one or hit up a Matchmaker and test one out if possible.  For an HP2, you’re gonna get tremendous value and a pin destroyer!

Hyped Hybrid
30 x 4.25 x 10

Holy cow this ball is good!  Over the past couple of years this is a performance category we have been missing.  For me the Hyped balls are replacing the HyRoad balls in my bag.  Those balls are a little round off of the friction for my ball speed/rev rate/ ball roll combo.  These match up much better when I need to shape it!  For most people this will be stronger than Electrify and Burner but not quite as strong as Trend 2 or UC2.  This ball is the perfect league ball!  Pre-order yours today!
