Got mine Wednesday.  Not only have I not missed a 7-pin in 2 nights, I actually pulled this ball out on the burn last night and shot 243 w/ it.  Not sure if the core is 2 or 3 piece, but it hit well regardless.  If I had a dollar for every person that has approached me and asked about the ball, I could likely go buy another new one.  It is CERTAINLY an eye-appealing conversation piece.  5 Stars on this one Roger!!!  You guys are making it VERY easy to promote more Roto-Grip down here in Atlanta.  Heard they might be back-ordered.....hope and pray that isn't the case as at least 8 people inquired about ordering one last night alone.  If only I could find a heavy-oiler by you guys...  Thx again for this little treasure.

Got this today to replace a WD that had spider web cracking around the thumbhole. Just got back from having mine punched out in Simi Valley; Jeff Massey, my pro shop guy, got three in and I grabbed the first one to be drilled and rolled at Harley's Simi Bowl ... all eyes in the house were on this cool, new spare ball and the buzz got around quckly as I rolled ball after cross-lane ball, shots at the "bucket" and a few up the outside to the pocket. WAY KEWL ...and does what it's supposed to; a nice "kill" shot for my 10 and 6 pins and has enough backend for a nice, easy roll to the 1-3 pocket. Due to the tire shape inside, slight changes in rotation REALLY make this ball look awesome as it rolls. Thanx, Roto-Grip !!!

Best looking spare ball to come along in a while.  Great shelf appeal and conversation starter.   It generates lots of interest in Roto-Grip and gets people in the door---should be a good seller especially with the popularity of NASCAR and racing in general

You will turn some heads when you take this sphere from your bag and place it on the ball return.  This is the most unique looking ball I have seen in many years.  Not only great looking, but also very functional for the purpose it was designed for. (spare shooting and dry lane conditions)  Drilled over the label.  Donít be stuck at a tournament without your spare tire, by Roto-Grip

Everyone can use this great ball.  No only does it perform great for picking up the spares, it also is great for the real dry lanes.  You will need to practice picking up the spares as everyone will be watching this unique spare tire rolling down the lanes to run over the pins.  For best results you will need to have you "Pro Shop" find the PAP so they can drill the ball so it looks like the tire is rolling down the lane.

Great Look!!!

The best clear ball made.  Imperfections have been eliminated. Not milky. Logos on tire look great rotating down the lane. Tread on tire is the attention to detail that makes this ball unique.

Eye catching ball with great spare ball performance. Just throwing the ball will attract attention.

It seems to be a bit harder of surface than previous spare balls.  It goes right where you aim it. No early hook.

Get one when you can.  You will be mad if you miss this chance.

The ball looks great.  I am surprised nobody thought of this earlier.  This one will definitely turn some heads.  I have already had many inquiries on this one.  A spare ball is a must in everyone bag, you might as well purchase one that looks as good on the rack, as well as when it rolls.

The SPARE TIRE is by far the best looking spare ball on the market. On the ball return or rolling down the lane, you will sure to catch lots of attention.

After drilling my SPARE TIRE over the label. I can tell you that you wont miss much spares with this one.

Put a some air in your game... Get a SPARE TIRE !

Without a doubt the best looking spare ball of all time.  I have used once on extremely dry conditions.  It's a great addition for anybody's spare game because it will definitely go straight and get rave reviews from all spectators.  This ball fits me perfectly because I'm in the tire business.

I've had this ball for weeks now and everyone can't keep there eyes off of it.  Even the people who saw me throw it the week before can't stop staring at it.  Easily the best clear out on the market.  Spare Tire owns me!  Don't miss out on this one!  Especially if you are a car guy.

I was fortunate to get one of these before they hit backordered status.  The night I brought it out, my proshopguy got 10 requests for that ball.  Not only is it visually appealing, I also shot 641 with it on my usual Thursday desert condition last week.  A+++++ to RotoGrip on this one.

This ball is a great spare ball. I had it drilled over the logo, and picks up my spares rather nicely.
But it is the way it looks when it rolls down the lane that is very cool.
Go get yourself one before like every other great ball, they won't be around forever. People are still wanting the Roto-Grip grenade spare ball.
