Hustle RIP
« on: August 14, 2023, 08:42:18 PM »
The new Hustle RIP has been compared to the Hustle INK of yesteryear and for good reason, it's incredibly smooth up front AND down the lane, and somehow manages to give you plenty of angle through the pins at the same time...a very unique combo that blends all the best attributes of control and flip all at the same time. I drilled mine with my normal benchmark layout of 4.5x4x2. On fresh oil, this was simply a beast. The higher RG and lower differential allowed me to play a little farther right than normal which is extremely nice, and allows you to stay in that ball a little longer than maybe something that forces you left immediately. A great mid lane motion all the way through the pins, until I got to around 22-23 at the arrows, at which point I started seeing some laziness unless I was extremely crisp at release, which told me it was time to get into the Hustle M&M and keep going from there. The RIP and the M&M are an incredible 1-2 combo! This is an incredibly versatile ball with usability for all styles!

The Hustle RIP is the latest addition to the hustle line. The Hustle Core is wrapped in the VTC solid reactive cover. I’ll be quick on this one. If you loved the Hustle Ink, you’ll love the RIP! That classic hustle motion, smooth and continuous. Great for all levels of players and many styles. A great option for when the lanes break down but still need control. This would also be a fantastic option for a beginner learning to hook the ball! You will never go wrong with a Hustle!

The Hustle series has been a staple in my bag for the last few years especially due to my personal success with the Hustle CAMO. The low diff (.030) on these balls make them ideal for the house patterns in my area as they are very low volume/high friction and weaker equipment is necessary for a lot of people. I drilled this one 3.75 x 3.5 (little bit weaker than my CAMO) putting the pin just below my bridge. This ball is a pretty significant step down from the XPONENT as I was able to play at least a full arrow right with a similar target down lane. Weak, shiny solids have been very successful for me as they allow for front of lane clearance with good control down lane without having to move way left. As with most balls in the Hustle line, the RIP likely won't be conducive to heavier volume and/or much longer patterns. But if you are looking for a great piece for lower volume, or just a very solid performing ball at a low price, look no further than the Hustle RIP.
