Roto Grip Hustle BRY
« on: May 12, 2024, 08:17:23 PM »
Roto Grip Hustle BRY and Hustle XRAY
Layout: 4.0 x 4.0 x 2 Storm Pin Buffer Layout
Rev Rate: 325 rpm, 7 degree of axis tilt, 40 degree of axis rotation
Testing information: 41 foot THS (medium to light volume)
Bowling Center: Fulton Bowling Center
Kegel Machine – Brunswick Anvilane

Roto Grip’s Hustle BRY utilizes the VTC Hybrid coverstock and the Hustle core, while the Hustle XRAY uses the VTC Solid coverstock and Hustle core.

Can you say Value?  Value is when the performance beats the expectations.  This is what you get with the Hustle line.  The Hustle BRY and Hustle XRAY, the newest entries into the HP1 line, are the definition of value.  Both have their place.  The Hustle XRAY is earlier and smoother down lane where the Hustle BRY is cleaner in the fronts and more boom down lane.  Pick the one that fits the gap in your bag or buy both. Lol.  If you bowl in a high friction bowling center, the BRY is probably the best answer.  The XRAY will be the better choice for bowlers wanting to keep their target in front of them and play straighter.

The latest edition to the Hustle line is the BRY which features the VTC Hybrid reactive coverstock with the tried-and-true Hustle core.  At 15 pounds the RG is medium at 2.53 with a differential of .030.  The BRY is finished with Reacta Gloss.  The Hustle line continues to provide bowlers with excellent performance at the entry level price point.  Don’t let the price tag fool you…this ball delivers a lot of bang for your buck!  The BRY is a great ball for the beginner as well as the tournament bowler.  The BRY with its hybrid coverstock, provides excellent length on medium to light oil conditions.  The backend motion of the BRY will be more angular than the Hustle X-Ray.  For me the I need to be about 2 -3 boards left with my feet when compared to the X-Ray.  The BRY will allow you to play closer to the friction, but because of the quicker response, I need to have a slightly more open angle through the front part of the lane.  Another quality option for a fraction of the cost of the high-performance balls.

Roto Grip Hustle B-R-Y

PRODUCT DETAILS: Hustle Lightweight core wrapped in VTC hybrid reactive coverstock. Finished at 2000ab with Rough Edge compound, which helps create higher dry lane COF.

Layout: 4 x 3 ½ x 3

My updated specs: Ball speed: average 15.5 mph. - Rev Rate: 425 – Axle tilt: 16 degrees – Axis rotation 70 degrees.

Welcome the next generation in the Hustle Line, the all-new Hustle B-R-Y, burgundy, red, and yale blue are the colors on this new Hustle, along with VTC hybrid coverstock. The coloring is amazing on this ball, you know when it goes down the lane it’s a B-R-Y. For the coverstock prep, leaning from changing my M+M from the Reacta Shine finish to 2000ab then hitting the cover with Rough Edge compound. For a little earlier and smoother back-end reaction, which the backend reaction is weaker than the new Tropical Surge Midnight, which is one of the first Surges pored in Utah in years, but weaker than the Hyped Hybrid which has been my “go to ball” the past 2 ½ years until the X-Ray and the Lighting Blackout was released a few weeks ago. The B-R-Y is the best hybrid version of the Hustles in nearly 7 years by ha having the best overall length and pin carry versus several other hybrid version and several polished solid versions like the Camo version which was recently in the Hustle line. The ball fits in the bag a step of from my X-Ray with a 5 x 4 x 4 layout and a step down from the Storm Lighting Blackout. The Blackout has more overall length, but with less “snap” in the backend. The B-R-Y creates longer length, but sharper angles into the pocket.

I have always been a Hustle Fan and can recommend theses balls with confidence. The Hustle line provides a lot of bang for the buck. I use the Hustles in two of the dryer houses I sometimes bowl at and have shot very well with them. The Hustle line was designed to be predictable with great performance. The New Hustle B-R-Y gives me more length and back end than the X-Ray and plays well from different lines with very good hit and carry. The colors of the B-R-Y are very nice. The first time I used this ball for a set, I shot 714 while subbing on a lower volume house pattern. I was able to use the B-R-Y all three games with minor moves on the lane. The Hustles act like a much more expensive ball on the right pattern. I drilled the B-R-Y and X-Ray at the same time with the same layout and threw them at a few centers together and the B-R-Y provides more length and backend due to the cover. The total boards are close but the shapes are different with the X-Ray being smoother. I will put this ball above my Surge and below my Tour Dynamix in total hook. This ball should be a great choice for a newer bowler or a beast in the hands of a high rev or no thumb bowler.

The Hustle B-R-Y is a beautiful looking ball.
This ball provides excellent length and backend.
This ball would be a great first reactive ball for most bowlers.

PAP: 4 3/8 OVER / 1/16 UP






The Hustle BRY a new color addition to the reliable and hard working Hustle line up. The Hustle Core is paired up with the VTC Hybrid Reactive Coverstock to give you quality performance on the lighter to medium oil conditions. The ball comes with Reacta-Gloss on it out of the box which gives it more length than the X Ray. I’m able to go to this ball later in game 2 and in game 3 of my league since its a little quicker off the friction so I’m able to move right more and get the ball to give me a little more angle down lane when the XRay becomes a little to slow off the spot. New bowlers will love this ball for its performance at the price point, and players who are veterans looking for a weaker ball for the burnt up house shot will love this ball.

Hustle B/R/Y - Ball Specs
Cover Stock: VTC hybrid reactive
Finish: Reacta Gloss
Color: Burgundy/Red/White
Core: Hustle Core
RG: 2.53
Differential: 0.030
The Roto Grip has added two more Hustles to this iconic ball line, the Hustle X-Ray and B/R/Y.
The Hustle B/R/Y is cleaner version of the new Hustles, which features the iconic Hustle Core wrapped in the VTC hybrid reactive cover. As a medium to low rev player, this ball is great on light and dry oil patterns. I was able to play in the track area and down and in up the five board. The Hustle B/R/Y is more aggressive on the backend of the lane than the X-Ray, because of the VTC hybrid reactive cover with Reacta Gloss. The Hustle B/R/Y is a must have for league and tournament bowlers. Now available for preorder at your local pro shop! My ball reviews are posted on YouTube channel Stanley Waite.
