I am higher speed, rev challenged 220-250ish, high tilt, high rotation, and super low track player. I drilled my Roto Grip Attention Star 35 x 4.5 x 25 using the dual angle.My axis point is 3 1/4 over and 7/8 up.
The Attention Star is a welcomed addition to my arsenal it revs up early but clean through front part of the lane and continues down lane. I generally use this ball game 2 - 3 of league or when there is friction right and transition is happening. The Roto Grip Attention Star definitely does not disappoint!

Attention Star - A Must Have

Ball speed: 16mph
Rev Rate: 420
Axis Tilt: 20 degrees
Axis Rotation: 50 degrees
Layout: 65x5x35

The Attention Star features the Momentus AV core with A.I. wrapped around the E-Trax+ coverstock.  Out of the box both my Attention Stars were extremely clean and had fantastic motion off the back of the pattern, I almost found it too clean on most patterns. I sanded One ball to 2000 to bring the breakpoint closer to my feet and to handle “fresher” conditions, this ball does exactly what’s I wanted it to do picks up a touch more in the mid-lane and has a heavy roll to the pocket. The second attention star I sanded to 3000 and added smooth edge to it to give it a sheen, when the fronts are hooking a pinch more and there’s a little more transition I’m able to use this ball to create more length but not miss the mid-lane as much as it did with the out of box finish. At both surfaces this ball is incredible and I find myself trying to get into it as often as possible.

It fits in between my Gem and Optimum Idol, this ball will shine during early transition if you keep it with polish on it and it can handle some of the fresh if you use surface, this ball is extremely forgiving.

Most players will be able to use this ball in league as is strong enough to handle some volume and doesn’t come off the friction to quickly.

Lower rev players will love this ball as you can play the friction well with it and it has just enough juice to turn the corner in the oil.

Higher rev players will love to get in and wheel this ball around the lane.
