The Clone is the newest ball in the HP4 line for Roto Grip. It is featuring the Cloned ET core which is like the original ET core but has been modified to get a lower RG and a higher diff. With the Clone I found is a ball that is really clean due to the Reacta Gloss. The new coverstock is also a balance of a clean but round shape. With the core you are getting a early rolling core with continuous motion. This ball will be a good step down from a gem but is still a longer reaction compared to an exotic gem. This will be good out of box with higher rev bowlers but will adjust very well with surface to fit a variety of styles.  Get yours 8/18 at your local Storm VIP pro shop.

PAP - 1 1/4'' up, 4 7/8 over
Layout - 5.25 x 4.25 x 3

The CLONE is the newest installment in Roto Grip's HP4 line. While the words "solid asymmetric" often mean early and strong. This piece for me, is actually very versatile when it comes to length and starting point. It comes out of box with Reacta-Gloss, which really allows it to clear the fronts with ease. A surface change on the CLONE can bring the starting point closer to you and allows it to be 2 or 3 balls in one. It is very round down lane, giving the a lot of control throughout the entire path of the ball. While I have never thrown its predecessor, this seems to be the closest replacement to a UFO Alert that we have in the current line. Go get yours August 18th and remember to bowl up a Storm!!
