I would think the wreck it would be a sanded hybrid considering they just came out with the hectic and just retired the devour. Just my thinking.

I would find it hard to believe they would put out a hybrid as a successor to a hybrid, sanded or not.

That was my thoughts as well. If these are all they're coming with then I'm going to jump back to my consideration of the Paradox balls, the Snap Lock, or the Dark Legend.

It kind of does. I think I like it though. Any ball with that shade of green catches my eye.

The Wreck-It is going to have a lot of shelf appeal. To me the picture on the USBC site looks like the black is a pearl colorization, but like bowlingman817 said with the Hectic still in the lineup/the newest HP2 ball that would be an odd next step.

The Power Cell is purple, pink, and black. Looks like a solid, maybe polished, to me as well. I'm thinking that may in fact be an international release. Interesting that all three of the new additions have black as a part of the color scheme though.


That was my thoughts as well. If these are all they're coming with then I'm going to jump back to my consideration of the Paradox balls, the Snap Lock, or the Dark Legend.

Don't confuse looks with performance. The No Rules should definitely be a heavy oil option for Roto Grip. All they have in the HP4 line right now is the Eternal Cell so a new flagship piece is needed. The Haywire is still around but being a HP3 ball (and the pricing that goes with that) it doesn't have quite as much potential to be a cash cow for them. Have patience until more info is out.  ;)

Wow just saw the pics...

No rules looks to be a solid

You would want to assume the wreck-it would be an updated replacement to the wrecker.  But being they discontinued the devour...maybe it is an outcry styled cover.   

The no rules looks cool in my opinion.  Better than the menace ....

The menace stock pic looked awesome...in person not so much....

Green, orange and black should go together better than yellow, green and red.... right?

I hope it's an all new core in the no rules...

Motiv should have let Roto Grip have the Freestyle name in exchange for No Rules. That would have been a great name for the Jackal replacement.

Also, I had no idea the approved list (not the PDF) showed stock pictures . :-[

They should refine their manufacturing process, ensure it is on point...six sigma sh!t


Then come out with a ball name we with the initials F.U. haha

That's actually quite funny.   :P

The "F.U." is the solid and then ball down to the "F.U. haha" pearl.  The middle finger core.  Would that be a high RG with the middle extended?  :-\

Don't know yet. It seems like it could be an overseas release but it would make sense for Roto to have 3 stateside releases

It's going to be interesting. If the No Rules is a HP4 release, and I don't see why it wouldn't be, then assuming the Power Cell is also that would be two of them at once. That would make sense given where the holes in the lineup are now that the Menace and Hyper Cell Skid have been retired, but I don't think they've done that before either.

Just gonna have to wait and see.  :'(

I personally think they will stick to these 2 this time around.  They did the Hy Wire and the Hustle's not too long ago, and those were outside of the normal pattern.

Good to know. Will the Wreck-It be a USA release? That one kind of seems iffy to me as well.
