    Hustle Wine

    Posted by William Tefft on Oct 6th 2021

    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

    Hustle Wine

    Posted by kennon mcfalls on Aug 31st 2021

    The Hustle Wine is probably the best pearl Hustle I have thrown. Past Hustles have gone to the wasteside because they were too clean and too angular. The Wine bridges the gap nicely between the solid Hustles and the more angular Hustles. While the Wine is the same as the RAP, to me it's smoother and more continuous. The Rap really missed the spot most of the time whereas with the Wine, it hugs the midlane better and really goes through the pins well. I bowl on high friction surfaces and I have found a new favorite ball in the Wine. Every time I go to league, the Wine is the first ball out of my bag. I have been successful at both curving the entire lane, and firming my speed up and going up the track. It's a great piece.

    Hustle Wine review by Mike Craig

    Posted by Mike Craig on Aug 31st 2021

    I drilled up my Hustle Wine 4 x 20 and left it box finish. Hustle Wine review: I put the WINE in play against the pearls I carry like the UC2, Hustle RAP, and ZEN. Against the ZEN, the WINE was a lot weaker. The WINE compared to the ZEN is probably a couple of zones weaker and a lot less motion. Really no comparison. The UC2 got closer in push thru the front, but definitely more motion down the lane. The WINE against the RAP was more of an even comparison. The WINE picked up about the same spot but just slightly more sharper than the RAP. The WINE is an updated version of the RAP with slightly more chops at the breakpoint. Pick up the WINE for more friction environments where the stronger balls are forcing you too far left for your style or way you like to see the lanes.

    Fine as...

    Posted by Tony Marino on Aug 30th 2021

    Hustle Wine: The best value line in bowling keeps getting better! The Wine is made up of the Hustle core with an RG of 2.53 and a diff of 0.030, wrapped in the VTC Pearl cover. I was a big fan of the gold Hustle and that this was just a remake of sorts, but nope! The Hustle Wine is way faster response down lane. I would categorize the backend shape as fast response and medium strength. I think the Wine floats a little too far down the lane for my personally so I will get the most use out of the ball after hitting it will a 3,000 grit Abralon pad. But HOLY COW does this ball hook on the back for the price!
