your best ever ROTO GRIP ball?
« on: February 25, 2012, 01:31:12 AM »
The title speaks for itself. what do you think is the best ROTO ball ( so far ) past / present and why? I have recently started to use Roto so my pick is the CRITICAL THEORY -  very consistant, seems to be my go to ball most of the time. I have 2 Criticals with different layouts. The RISING STAR is just as good as well so I may have to say both are the best.

RSP without a doubt. Nothing I have or had hit like this ball. Plus I shot my highest scores with it. 300/801 and then 299 in the City tournament. Next best would be my Critical Theory/Defiant..

 

RSP RIP..... :(

<div>This will be interesting to see just what ball past or present gets the most responses. my first Roto ball was a Mutant Cell, and it worked very well for me. so my rankings are since i have been using ROTO is 1 - Rising Star   2- Critical Theory   3- Defiant </div>

I always hate answring this question because there are just so many Roto balls that I love!
 

The RSP was my favorite benchmark ball before it cracked the entire circumference of the ball.

The Epic Battle was my favorite for heavy oil, until they came out with the Cell!

My Nomad is one of my all time favorites for all conditions.

I loved the Horizon Solid and it became my benchmark ball after the RSP cracked.

I shot 300 games with my Theory, but I use the Infinite Theory more often!

Right now, with all the light oil conditions I am constantly seeing it's a tie between my Ultra Sonic, and my Riot!

 

So, all I can say is......all Roto balls are my favorites!

Jesse, my RS-P cracked just this week! It cracked from the weight hole around the ball to the middle finger. Oh well, I hadn't used it in a while since it's 16 lbs and I switched down to 15 a year ago, but I still liked having it around and throwing it a few shots now and then.

Rogue Cell for me, I still use it as my heavy oil ball.

Roto Grip's Original Fuel (orange+black).  Threw my 803 with that ball.  Probably the most consistent ball I had.
 
2nd choice would be the Epic Battle...really wish they would bring these 2 balls back in some form.

 I had a slew of favs from Roto:
1. Cell/ Silver Streak (wont make the decision as to which was better)
2. Cell Pearl (a cell that was more usable on THS)
3. Oracle Vision (very underrated, so much so that people were constantly coming up to me to ask me what I was throwing that was striking like that)
4. Horizon pearl (long and strong off the back and was usable on almost every condition)
5. Epic Quest (best heavy oil ball I've ever thrown, just mad I couldn't find enough oil to consistently throw it)
 

aka. Big Daddy Pink, Pink Pinkstofferson, Smooth as Asian Silk, Righty Complex, Big Daddy Wit Da Smooth Head.

I'm man enough to admit I stroke with the left hand and it feels good.

Whooooooo! Go time!

No excuses. Just bowl. High Score wins! Make the Adjustment!
