Rogue v. Cell differences
« on: March 17, 2009, 10:17:06 AM »
Is the Rogue or regular Cell more of a oil ball? I'm still a bit confused on the two and what each offers to lanes and the bowler. Thanks for some info.

The Rogue is the stronger ball both overall and on the backend. It is supposed to get more midlane read and about the same backend as the Cell Pearl. The Rogue is the strongest cover ever made by Roto and that is their own ad so don't get after me for that.

I have had them all, by far the Rouge is the stronger lil longer than the cell with backend of cell pearl. Have my Rouge drilled 6*4 1/2 mb 2 1/2 inches from thumb,that puts the pin slightly under middle finger.was throwing it in warm up and was going little longer than wanted,so hit it with a gray scoth brite pad and was i in for a surprise. Went 257 289(solid 8) 220 didnt move left in time 3 game. Rouge was very smooth in front and exploded on backend, no problem going thru carrydown or any over or under,had to remember i adjusted surface so had keep speed up, one of the best balls ive thrown besides my second dimension,like having batman and robin in my bag lol. -------------------- Slim300 "It's not how you start,it's how you finish."

no not at all, i no with the drilling i had and with adjusting the surface i had alot of room for area and lanes were flooded.I was very surprised of how much the Rogue hooks,my driller warned me lol. But how ever you drill it dont be afraid to adjust surface to get the look u looking for. Comparing this to a virtual gravity i had, i would pick the Rogue hands down just my opinion.

3M:

No, go ahead with the Rogue as an oil ball and tune the surface to what you need.  My Rogue is drilled the weakest pin position (to control flare) and is easily the strongerst overall hook ball in my bag.
