    Hustle RIP

    Posted by Zachary P Woelfel on Oct 14th 2023

    The all new Hustle RIP features the VTC Solid Reactive coverstock with the Reacta Gloss finish wrapped around the Hustle Core. I am extremely excited for this ball because it is a remake of my favorite Hustle the Hustle Ink. I have had a lot of success with the Hustle Ink in the past and I fully expect that the Hustle RIP to be a great replacement. I have liked what I have seen so far and I look forward to getting more use with it in the future, go out and get yours today!

    Roto Grip Hustle RIP Ball Review

    Posted by Pete Dohan on Sep 28th 2023

    Bowler Stats: Speed: 15.5 MPH Rev Rate: 275 RPM Tilt: 3-5 degrees Axis Rotation: 60 degrees PAP: 5 ⅜ over 1 ¼ up Layout: 41/2 X 41/2 X 21/2 VLS Being a lower rev rate bowler I don’t use many of the lower end pieces in the line but with the release of the RIP I decided I needed a weaker ball for patterns when I’m bowling in tournaments. The iQ Tour solid gives me the length I need but when it begins to hook too early I want something I can ball down to with a similar shape and the Hustle RIP does just that. With this ball having a weaker core I chose a 4 ½ inch pin, rather than my normal 5 inch pin placement, and the 2 ½ inch pin buffer to get the ball to read the dry earlier. The reacta gloss polish did make it a little too clean in the fronts so I removed it with a 2000 pad by hand and I’m letting the cover lane shine until I see any wiggle off the end of the pattern. Once that occurs I just keep it at a mat finish to eliminate the over / under reaction. When compared to the Hype Solid but it has more length and is quicker off the dry than the slower Hyped Solid. I used this ball during the PBA 50 event in Hammond on the 42’ Mark Roth pattern. I will also be testing it out during the league season. I bowl in a second shift league after a 5 person mixed league. Pete Dohan Storm Bowling Amateur Staff #StormNation

    Hustle RIP review

    Posted by Alex Thomes on Sep 15th 2023

    Ball Specs: Roto Grip Hustle RIP Coverstock: VTC Pearl Weight Block: Hustle core Color Royal Imperial Purple Finish 1000 Grit step 2 Layout 35x4 1/4x35 or 4 1/4x3 1/2x2 1/8 Bowler Specs: Right Hand. PAP 3 11/16 Over 1 up Rev Rate 400 Speed at release 17.5 Review: The Roto Grip Hustle RIP is one of the new Hustle’s for this league season. With the same core and cover as the Hustle Camo the biggest difference is in the color. This ball is a little cleaner and more continuous compared to the camo with the out of box finish. With the surface change to 1k and step two this created a ball motion that is very similar to the Hustle Ink that was released about 4 years ago. Compared to the Hyped Solid this ball is going to be cleaner because of the polish but is a step down in overall ball shape. This will be a great late block ball when balls like the Hustle M+M are still too clean. This will be great higher rev bowlers and even the first-time league bowler.

    The Hustle RIP is Excellent!

    Hustle RIP • Roto Grip • HP1 Series Core • Hustle Core (Symmetric) Coverstock • VTC (Versatile Traction Control) Solid Reactive• Finish Reacta Gloss Weight • 15 lbs. RG • 2.53 Differential • .030 Layout • 4 x 4¼x2 ¼ Tester PAP • 5” R, 5/8” D Tester Axis Tilt • 11° Testers Rev Rate • 300 Test Pattern • 42’ THS (Typical House Shot) • Modified, Kegel Stone Street Roto Grip continues its successful Hustle line with the new Hustle RIP. This new Purple Solid version of Hustle brings a unique quality to Roto Grip’s HP1 line. And I was pretty impressed with how an HP1 ball could deliver such good results. So, let’s take a closer look. The Hustle Core has become a thriving industry standard since its introduction in 2017 inside the Hustle INK. And the Hustle Core has proven to be a smooth, consistent workhorse. And I found those same results with the RIP as with the original Hustle INK. The Hustle Core revs smoothly in the mid-lane and continues with a consistent motion as it makes its way off the pattern. And for a medium RG and differential, the Hustle Core has plenty of destructive power through the pin deck. So, don’t let the thought of HP1 push you away; the Hustle Core will deliver results for any style or level of bowler, especially for straighter players like me. Let’s talk about the awesome VTC (Vertical Traction Control) Solid found on the Hustle RIP. Mind you, being a straighter player, Surface is my best friend. So, I sanded my Hustle RIP with 2000-grit Abralon for a league night, and the VTC Solid performed flawlessly all night for me on a THS. Starting out playing up ten (Second arrow), I could rely on the VTC Solid to clear the fronts easily but still had mild traction in the mid-lane. And without being overly aggressive, that mild traction allowed my Hustle RIP to retain a lot of energy to be unleashed at the pins. Further, as the night went on and I could open up my angles, I loved how the VTC Solid rolled smoothly and blended the over under conditions that developed. So, make no mistake; the VTC Solid is an excellent choice for any down-and-in player like me. In conclusion, Roto Grip has continued its successful Hustle line with the Hustle RIP. And the Hustle RIP will be an excellent choice for any bowler style, especially for a straighter like me. Further, I highly recommend the Hustle RIP to any new bowler looking to get into the sport and the parent looking to get their child started; look no further; the Hustle RIP is an excellent choice. So, stop into your local Strom VIP Pro Shop today and see where you’re Hustle RIP fits into your arsenal! It is worth it!

    Roto Grip Hustle RIP Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

    Posted by PJ Haggerty on Aug 30th 2023

    One of the latest additions to the HP1 line at Roto Grip is the Hustle RIP. Whether you’re new to bowling or are an avid league / tournament player, the Hustle RIP can be a valuable addition to your arsenal. It’s designed for patterns with medium-low volumes of oil, but if you have a higher rev-rate and need something to get farther down the lane before changing direction, this should be a ball to consider. The Hustle RIP is wrapped with a solid, reactive covertock and the same Hustle core that’s been consistent with the Hustle line. With an RG of 2.53 and differential of .030, the Hustle RIP is designed to get down with lane with ease, change direction consistently, and be a nice addition to your arsenal. I’ve drilled one so far and really like it. Because the differential is low at .030, I’d recommend drilling it a little stronger to make sure it flares enough. I mapped mine out as 4 x 3 x 2. This puts the pin near my ring finger and a decent shift of the CG. I’ve also scratched the surface with a 3000 pad to make sure the ball isn’t too shiny and rolls consistently. If you need a ball for lanes with less volume, or if you’re new to the game and are looking for great performance at a lower price point, the Hustle RIP from Roto Grip should be the next ball you drill.

    Hustle RIP

    Posted by Todd B on Aug 30th 2023

    The new Hustle RIP (Royal Imperial Purple) features the tried-and-true Hustle core wrapped in the VTC Reactive Solid cover stock. At 15 pounds the RG is 2.53 and the differential is .030. I drilled this ball at 5x4x2 (pin above bridge) to replace my Hustle Ink. The Ink in my opinion was the best ball ever made for the price. The RIP is very similar to the Ink. The ball just seems to glide along the lane in a very controlled arcing motion. The RIP starts up about 2-3 feet sooner than the M&M and has a much more controlled backend motion. This ball will see a lot of action on my league patterns. I can play just inside the “cliff” and feed the RIP to the dry and it will just ease its way back to the pocket. Another one of those balls that won’t wow you with an overall hook or massive backend reaction. The only place it wows you is on the scoresheet. Dollar for dollar, the best ball on the market.

    Roto Grip Hustle RIP Ball Review

    Posted by Patrick Keiffer on Aug 26th 2023

    The Roto Grip Hustle RIP has a Medium RG value of 2.53 a low differential of 0.030. Roto Grip listened to the masses and came out with the second coming of the Hustle ink with the Hustle RIP. The Hustle RIP features the original Hustle Core with the Versatile Traction Control (VTC) cover. This formula delivers outstanding performance while providing control and versatility without being overly aggressive. So, if stability and control is what you are after, look no further. The Hustle INK put the bowling world on notice when it delivered the 34th sanctioned 900 Series in bowling history. From that point on, the Hustle Series has become better known for providing the most "bang for your buck." In comparison to the Roto Grip Hyped Solid in which has the same coverstock, the Hustle RIP will be a pinch smoother and later off the spot basically due to the core differences. The RIP will offer you a very versatile ball in which you can drill the ball either pin up or pin down to favor the driest of conditions. In the bag, will be the Summit, Xponent, Zen Gold Label and Roto Grip Hustle RIP

    Hustle RIP

    Posted by Keith Cordy on Aug 24th 2023

    Roto Grip Hustle RIP VTC Solid Reactive Finish: Reacta Gloss Hustle Core RG: 2.53 Diff: 0.030 Layout: 5 1/4 x 1 3/8 PAP: 4 7/8 R, 3/4 UP Tested on AMF HPL THS after 3 games of league bowling Get your Hustle ON! This is my second Hustle after the infamous Ink. Didn't matchup very well due to my lower rev-rate (325) but since moving south I incurred a lighter THS, so here we go. The RIP was surprisingly more responsive than I anticipated. It gave me more miss room to the dry than I ever had with a high RG/low diff. ball. I can honestly state it is more predictable to my eyes and the carry was better than average. Basically this is the ultimate game 2-3 ball on the lighter medium to dry THS. Controlling my ball speed is key as the polished VTC cover has no problems getting down lane. This formula delivers outstanding performance while providing control and versatility without being overly aggressive. Moves right to left gave me a wider range of entry angles and greater carry. This is a league bowlers dream ball while be an ultimate tournament ball for those who prefer resin over urethane like me. So again "Get your Hustle RIP On"!

    I drilled my Hustle RIP (5 x 4 x 4 ¼) for the purpose of using it as a ball down from the IQ tour. For those who have been following the Roto Grip, The Hustle Ink has been recreated as the Hustle RIP. The ball is very clean and needs to be hit with a little surface to slow down. Bowling balls like the Hustle are great for house shots and later games in a tournament. For those who roll the ball slower Hustles are also fantastic bench mark balls.

    Hustle Rip

    Posted by Brian Locke on Aug 24th 2023

    The Hustles continue to be one of the best bang for your buck bowling balls. I was shocked with how much the Hustle RIP hooked out of the box. I could keep moving left and watch it rip off the friction! Gonna be a great ball for when there is plenty of friction on the lane or even just your first ball! Probably going to be in my house shot bag for a foreseeable part of the future. Coverstock: VTC Solid with Reacta Gloss Core: Hustle Core RG: 2.53 - Differential: .030 (15lbs) Layout: 4.5 x 5 x 4 2LS Pap: 4 7/8 Right, ¼ up Rev Rate: +-500 Speed 17-18mph Brian Locke – Storm Amateur Staff
