Additional product information:

Since their conception back in 2016, the Hustle Series of bowling balls has provided outstanding performance above and beyond the retail price. From the 34th sanctioned 900 Series by the HustleTM INK, to countless TV appearances over the years on both the PBA & PWBA Tours. The various versions of the Hustle's have provided consistent reactions time and time again.

And while the inner Hustle Core has remained the same since day one, it's the different variations of the VTCTM (Versatile Traction Control) Coverstock - Solid, Pearl & Hybrid, that have kept this line viable on those Light to Medium Oil conditions for every level of bowler from the first-timers, all the way up to the pros.

    Hustle X-Ray

    Posted by X-Ray on Jun 25th 2024

    Hustle X-Ray - Ball Specs Cover Stock: VTC Solid Reactive Finish: 4000 Grit Abralon Color: Slate/Black Core: Hustle Core RG: 2.53 Differential: 0.030 Review The Roto Grip has added two more Hustles to this iconic ball line, the Hustle X-Ray and B/R/Y. The Hustle X-Ray is the stronger of the new Hustles, which features the iconic Hustle Core wrapped in the VTC solid reactive cover. As a medium to low rev player, this ball being great on medium to light oil patterns. There will be no issues playing in the track area and down and in up the five board. The Hustle X-Ray reads the lanes a little earlier than the Hustle RIP. The Hustle X-Ray is a must have for league and tournament bowlers. Now available for preorder at your local pro shop!

    X Ray

    Posted by Anthony S on Jun 21st 2024

    HAND: LEFT (ONE HANDED) PAP: 4 3/8 OVER / 1/16 UP BALL SPEED: 16MPH REV RATE: 420 AXIS TILT: 20 AXIS ROTATION: 50 LAYOUT: 60X5X65 The Hustle X-Ray a new color addition to the reliable and hard working Hustle line up. The Hustle Core is paired up with the VTC Solid Reactive Coverstock to give you quality performance on the lighter to medium oil conditions. This ball typically finds its way into my league bag week in and week out due to less oil being put out during league play. With there being so much friction to the outside of most league patterns the Hustle X-Ray doesn’t over hook off the friction for me and has just enough when I miss into the oil in the middle of the lane thanks to its solid coverstock. Compared to the Hustle BRY my X-Ray gives me a better look in games 1 and 2 when there's a little more oil on the lanes, it also is a little smoother than the BRY which is why it comes out of the bag earlier. Players who are just getting into bowling will find this ball a has great performance for the price point and players who have bowled for years will love how it can fit into bottom of your arsenal on light to medium oil patterns.

    Hustle X-Ray Review

    Posted by Thomas Coco on Jun 10th 2024

    The Hustle makes its return, this time with the X-Ray, which has the original Hustle core with the Symmetrical VTC Solid Coverstock. I drilled my pin up layout at 60 x 4.5 x 30 to give the ball more length and controllable backend. It does not disappoint! When it comes to bowling on high friction surfaces and shorter patterns, I try to level up from my IQ 78 and with the urethane carry down, I can open up my angles and receive more down lane carry. I find the Hustle XRay to work really well on short-medium conditions. This ball will definitely be a staple in my bag. And not only that, for a great entry level ball, the value exceeds its expectations! Drill one up from your local pro shop today!! Thomas Coco (storm staffer)

    Roto Grip Hustle X-Ray

    Posted by Glenn W on Jun 5th 2024

    Ball Specs: Roto Grip Hustle X-Ray Cover stock VTC Solid Reactive Weight Block Hustle™ Core (Symmetrical) Color Slate/Black Finish 4000 Abralon Layout 4.5 x 4.5 x 1.5 Pin Buffer Bowler Specs: Right Hand. PAP 5” Over 1/2 up Rev Rate 300. Tilt 20. Rotation 50. Speed at release 17 Review: I really like the Hustle series and my customers are always happy with this line of balls. I recommend and use the Hustles myself with confidence. The Hustle line rolls and hits like a much more expensive ball. I use the Hustles in two of the dryer houses I sometimes bowl at and have shot very well with them. I am subbing tonight on a lower volume house shot and the X-Ray will be definitely in the bag. The Hustle line was designed to be predictable with great performance and they do not disappoint. The New Hustle X-Ray is a cool looking ball and I have seen the colors vary quite a bit in the pours. My X-Ray is almost completely dark grey but I have seen some with a lot of light grey. They all look great and standout on the shelf. The X-Ray rolls smoother than my B-R-Y with the B-R-Y being a bit longer and more angular. I do like the 4000 finish on the X-Ray because it gets it to a predicable almost polished feel. I drilled the B-R-Y and X-Ray at the same time with the same layout and threw them at a few centers together. The total boards are close but the shapes are different. I would put this ball above my Surge and below my Tour Dynamix in total hook. This X-Ray has an eye catching new look and is a great choice for newer bowlers or the rev dominate bowler. Summary: The Hustle X-Ray has a cool new eye catching color. This ball provides control on lower volumes. This will be a great ball for new or rev dominate bowlers.

    Hustle X-Ray

    Posted by Todd Benner on May 24th 2024

    The Hustle X-Ray features the same Hustle core but this model comes wrapped in the VTC solid reactive coverstock finished at 4000 grit abralon. At 15 pounds the RG is medium at 2.53 and the differential is .030. The Hustle line continues to provide bowlers with excellent performance at the entry level price point. Don’t let the price tag fool you…this ball delivers a lot of bang for your buck! The X-Ray with it’s solid coverstock and finish, provides good length but the response time is on the slow side and the backend motion is an arc. All of this allows me to keep my angles closed while playing close to the friction. When compared to the Hustle BRY, the X-Ray is about 2 -3 boards right with my feet. This ball will be one of my go to balls on the lighter and shorter oil patterns.

    Great Starter

    Posted by Thomas Szczepaniak on May 22nd 2024

    The Hustle X-Ray is a very controllable symmetrical solid and has work great for me on some shorter patterns. I don’t normally keep these in my normal rotation due to where I bowl regularly but it will definitely be coming with me on some more challenging conditions.

    Roto Grip Hustle XRAY

    Posted by Kevin Duncan on May 12th 2024

    Roto Grip Hustle BRY and Hustle XRAY Layout: 4.0 x 4.0 x 2 Storm Pin Buffer Layout Rev Rate: 325 rpm, 7 degree of axis tilt, 40 degree of axis rotation Testing information: 41 foot THS (medium to light volume) Bowling Center: Fulton Bowling Center Kegel Machine – Brunswick Anvilane Roto Grip’s Hustle BRY utilizes the VTC Hybrid coverstock and the Hustle core, while the Hustle XRAY uses the VTC Solid coverstock and Hustle core. Can you say Value? Value is when the performance beats the expectations. This is what you get with the Hustle line. The Hustle BRY and Hustle XRAY, the newest entries into the HP1 line, are the definition of value. Both have their place. The Hustle XRAY is earlier and smoother down lane where the Hustle BRY is cleaner in the fronts and more boom down lane. Pick the one that fits the gap in your bag or buy both. Lol. If you bowl in a high friction bowling center, the BRY is probably the best answer. The XRAY will be the better choice for bowlers wanting to keep their target in front of them and play straighter.

    THE XRAY!

    Posted by Oliver Lawson on May 11th 2024

    The newest addition to Roto Grip's HP1 line is the Hustle XRAY! It features the proven Hustle core wrapped in the popular VTC Solid coverstock. I drilled up a fresh IQ Tour edition to compare it to, and I was not at all surprised to see the difference between the two balls. I drilled both balls 5x4x4.25 2LS and kept the OOB finish on both. To cut to the chase, the Hustle XRAY is much cleaner through the front part of the lane but provides much more board coverage compared to the IQ Tour. The IQ tour is earlier and smoother throughout and covers fewer boards from right to left. This is mostly due to core shape and design. If I had a new Hustle PBR, I put this right at about the same mark as the PBR. Nonetheless, if you are looking for a great bang-for-your-buck ball, the Hustle XRAY is going to be a solid option to go with!

    Hustle X-Ray by Roto Grip Rick

    Posted by Rick Mitchell on May 9th 2024

    Roto Grip Hustle X-Ray PRODUCT DETAILS: COLOR: Slate / Black - CORE: Hustle™ Core - COVER: VTC™ Solid Reactive BOX FINISH: 4000-grit Abralon® Layouts: X-RAY # 1: 5 X 4 X 4 … X-Ray #2: 5 x 3 ½ X 2 ½ My updated specs: Ball speed: average 15.5 mph. - Rev Rate: 425 – Axle tilt: 16 degrees – Axis rotation 70 degrees. Since the introduction of the Roto Grip Hustle line 8 years ago, I knew that the Hustle line would be a “game changer” for years to come. The Hustle INK established itself as a key piece for all levels of bowlers from weekly league bowlers all the way up to the professional ranks, like recording the 34th sanctioned 900 series to winning national PWBA and PBA tournaments over the past 8 years. My favorite Hustle all-time has been the Hustle INK for year after year even when Roto Grip released new ones to the line, the INK still stood out over all them until last year when Roto Grip released the RIP version and the RIP became my new favorite since my old INKs I had were worn out. The RIP to me is the INK 2.0 with the coloring being dark and “liquid” looking. Now the X-Ray has hit the market, the RIP has been benched for now for the simple fact the X-Ray rolls a little sooner but still packs a BIG punch entering the pin deck. I have a few standard layouts since hoping back into 15lbs equipment for the first time in 5 years due to bad car wrecks – YES – plural, 2 over the past 5 years, and I drilled the first one at 5 x 4 x 4 and now recently drilled a second one – with 5 x 3 ½ x 2 ½. The reactions on both are not but amazing. X-Ray #1 is super reliable front to back with a nice little late kick entering the pocket and X-Ray #2 is quite stronger coming off the pattern and was quite shocking to me to see that much motion in the back end that was still controllable. The X-Ray #2 likes the oil a little bit more than X-Ray #1. When you watch my video, you will see X-Ray #1 I play straighter with it and use smaller angles and X-Ray #2 I can swing the lane as much as I want. What a truly versatile bowling ball for the price point that the Hustle line is in. Don’t be afraid to try one of the Hustles, it will not let you down.

    Hustle X-Ray

    Posted by Chase Valenzuela on May 6th 2024

    The Hustle X-Ray is the newest sanded solid offering in the HP1 line. This entry level piece is great for beginner bowlers and players looking for a weak option with a smoother shape. Combined with the VTC solid cover, the Hustle core still makes a big move on the back part of the lane. This new take on a classic provides a stellar ball reaction at a great price point! When you want value, you want a Hustle.
