UFO Alert
« on: June 10, 2021, 09:34:17 PM »
Roto Grips newest HP4 line ball features the ET Core, wrapped around the hybrid eTrax cover. I drilled mine 5 x 3 x 4.5 and after throwing this ball for a while I was quite impressed on how smooth it was. This cover is also featured on the Idol Synergy but slightly different because this is two parts pearl one part solid instead of the 50/50 blend found on the Synergy. The UFO Alert really allows me to blend the lane out when they are really wet/dry and doesnít over react when I miss towards the gutter. I will probably knock the shine slightly off mine to utilize it more as a fresh ball but I can see myself using this ball for entire blocks because of the cover/core combination.

The UFO Alert is the 2nd release in the HP4 line with the ET Core along with the E-Trax Hybrid coverstock.  I drilled mine with a 55 x 5 x 45 drilling which is the same drilling I have on the RST X-1.  Comparative to the two, the UFO Alert is cleaner while still maintaining the more continuous shape on the backend.  The Alert also gives a little more angularity as well so it is a very good compliment to the RST X-1.  Comparing the Alert with the UFO, there is a definite more defined difference in the backend.  Since the two balls share the same core, the midlane roll is very similar but the two coverstocks make the biggest difference.  The UFO Alert is again cleaner while still giving a smoother reaction in the midlane.  The Alert is a great step down from either the UFO or the RST X-1.  Compared to the Nuclear Cell, the Alert will be earlier rolling and slightly smoother in the backend due to the hybrid coverstock.

Don't sleep on this ball!!!! Perfect blend of core and cover. Strong but not early. Angular without being snappy. This will find it's way even almost every tournament players bag this season.

Roto Grip UFO Alert
Hey everyone, Iím back with another ball review, and this time itís for the Roto Grip UFO Alert and In 15 pounds this ball is wrapped in the eTrax Hybrid Reactive Coverstock and comes 1500-grit polished with an RG of 2.52, Diff of .054 and PSA of .016.
LOOK OUT!!! Itís a UFO Alert! This ball is a sexy gem sitting on the rack but when it is time to do work the UFO Alert never lets down its fans. The E.T. core is designed with cavities in the weight block to mimic the weigh hole that is no longer allowed. I preferred the ball at the factory finish of 1500 polished. Compared to the Storm Dark Code I was able to stand a few boards right to keep the ball online and keep the break point the same.
BOWLER STYLE: RH - Power Stroker Rev Rate: 320 Ball Speed: 15-16 PAP: 4 7/8 right 5/8 up.
