    Roto Grip Hustle Wine Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

    Posted by PJ Haggerty on Oct 20th 2021

    The Roto Grip Hustle Wine is another great piece that’s been added to the HP1 line. I’ve had a lot of success with the Hustle line and this one is excellent as well. After the Hustle Ink had been discontinued, Schlem and the wizards at HQ came out with the Hustle Wine, which I feel is the closest replacement. With an RG of 2.53 and differential of .030, the Hustle Wine is a perfect ball to use on those lighter volume patterns or when patterns have been beat up and you need a ball to get down the lane easily. I’ve drilled one Hustle Wine so far and really like it. From experience, I’ve drilled these balls with lower differentials a little stronger so they flare enough. If you drill them too weak, they won’t flare and likely won’t hook a lot. I drilled this one as 4 x 4 x 70. This puts the pin under my ring finger with a slight shift of the CG. It’s been a great ball to use after my Reality or UFO Alert get lazy and I need something to clear the front but still go through the pins the right way. If you need a ball to compliment the HP3 or HP4 line balls that will fly through the front with consistent continuation on those lighter volume patterns, the Hustle Wine should be the next ball you drill!

    Hustle Wine 55 x 5 x 10 This Hustle is the most special of the 3 shiny ones so far! It is super clean and will be very usable on dry lanes, but retains all of the energy for the backend and the pins! It is cleaner than the Camo and produces more down lane ''pop". This has been my go-to ball late block and on older high friction lane surfaces. This ball is a must have for rev dominant players or those of us looking for a dry lane ball!

    This ball is the best pearlized ball that I own that has the control on the backend of the lane. Most of my peralized balls tend to snap on the back, but not this ball which makes the reaction more predictable.

    Ball Specs: Roto Grip Hustle Wine 1500 VTC™ Pearl Reactive Weight Block: Hustle™ (Symmetrical) Color: Cranberry/Merlot Review: The Hustle Wine along with the Hustle Camo are more great pieces from the great Hustle Line. At the price point the Hustle Wine offers you great value if you’re looking for a versatile ball. This ball can be enjoyed by all experience levels. This ball looks beautiful going down the lane and makes a sharp turn when it gets to it’s break point. Being a higher rev bowler, I like to use this ball at the end of the day when the lane are burned up and I need something that can get down the lane without overlooking on me. I tend to pull this ball out of my bag when my Zen or Hyroad Pearl start to become to much ball for the conditions that I am bowling on. Make sure you grab yours today!

    Hustle WINE Review by Kyle & Joel Johnson, Roto Grip Staff

    Posted by Kyle & Joel Johnson on Sep 17th 2021

    Ball Specs: Roto Grip Hustle Wine 1500 VTC™ Pearl Reactive Weight Block: Hustle™ (Symmetrical) Color: Cranberry/Merlot Review: There is NO reason to not love this ball. It caters to literally every bowler in the world, regardless of skill level and is priced so reasonably that its worth its weight in gold. For the seasoned veterans you can expect an extremely versatile low end pearl, something to keep transition to late in a block if you are needing to move right (even if the conditions are drying up). For the novice bowler you can expect great value in your purchase, getting a great piece of equipment for pennies over an entry level reactive bowling ball. The color options also appeal to novice bowlers who may care more about color than performance. The trusted Hustle core is in many bowling record books for a reason, it’s just that good.

    Hustle Wine Review

    Posted by Glenn Wendel on Sep 10th 2021

    Ball Specs: Roto Grip Hustle Wine Cover stock Pearl Reactive Weight Block Hustle™ Core (Symmetrical) Color Cranberry / Merlot Finish 1500-grit Polish Bowler Specs: Right Hand. PAP 5” Over 1/2 up Rev Rate 300. Tilt 20. Rotation 50. Speed at release 17 Review: The Hustle Wine is the latest pearl Hustle introduced to the line. The Hustle Wine is another ball that gives you more performance than you pay for. This ball is weaker than the Burner Pearl and is perfect for dryer conditions. The Wine has an upgraded cover from the RAP so I am seeing more down lane motion. The Hustle Wine has quickly become a favorite of my two handers or Rev dominant bowlers. The Wine while giving you a nice move on the back is still predictable. The Wine hits as good as a much more expensive ball. I thought the last Hustles where very good but I really feel the new Wine and Camo are better. The Hustle Wine will be a great choice for new bowlers looking for a performance ball with control or the experienced bowler needing a ball they can trust on drier conditions. Summary: The Hustle Wine is a good looking ball. The control and hit on dry lanes is excellent. The Hustle line gives you a ton of bang for your buck.

    Hustle Wine

    Posted by BRIAN HIRSCH on Sep 7th 2021

    Hey everyone, I'm back with another ball review, and this time it's for the Roto Grip Wine Pearl and In 15 pounds this ball is wrapped in the VTC (Versatile Traction Control) Pearl Coverstock and comes 1500-grit polished with an RG of 2.53, Diff of .030. with a layout of 5 1/8 X 3 1/4 X 2 3/4 Depending on the surface of the Hustle Wine, bowlers will be able to use this on low-to-medium oil conditions. There are not many balls that can cover a variety of conditions, especially at an entry level price point. To give a comparison the Hustle Camo will dig in just a tad through the front of the lane compared to the Hustle Wine. This two-ball release will be a nice transition when the "benchmark" balls are just too early. The Solid and Pearl will naturally be longer and stronger. BOWLER STYLE: RH - Power Stroker Rev Rate: 320 Ball Speed: 15-16 PAP: 4 7/8 right 5/8 up. #Storm #VISE #BowlersChoiceProShop #BabesAndBallsBowling #LogoInfusion or #IAmBowling (coupon code HIRSCH 20% off at checkout) YouTube Channel: Brian Hirsch

    Wine is Fine!

    Posted by Rick Mitchell on Sep 6th 2021

    Roto Grip Hustle Wine: VTC Pearl Reactive with the Hustle Core 1500 grit polished - layout : 2 x 2 x 6 This Hustle was a breath of fresh air for me. It reminded me of the Roto Grip Mystic I had several years ago. Very "calm" in the front part of the lane, easy through the middle of the pattern and a little sharpness to the back end reaction. Not your typical entry level "flip hook" like a Tropical Surge or similar designed balls. If I missed left, the ball did not over hook like my Tropical Surge when it got to the dry area too quickly. Played around with the surface a little and noticed that having it a 4000ab and lane shine it rolled the best for me. Once leagues start up for me, this will be in the ball along with the RST-X1 and maybe a Zen Master to make up the 3 headed monster. #SquadRG
