Additional product information:

We collectively gathered our thoughts and perspectives on what we felt the HP2 line truly stands for and what it should be. We then went to work developing and constructing what is now known as the Hyped Core. Measuring in as the lowest RG core we have ever offered in the HP2 line, the Hyped Core provides more overall motion than the balls offered in the HP1 line, while providing a touch less motion than our HP3 line offerings. Thus, making this one of the best options we have ever constructed for the HP2 line of balls in history. So, if you weren’t already excited, it is now time to GET HYPED!

    Hyped Hybrid

    Posted by Casey Mattingly on Jan 14th 2022

    The Hyped Pearl is an amazing late block or low volume, angular option. I usually like to use balls like pin down hyroad pearls, iq emeralds, or hustle camo’s. All of those are fairly slow down lane. The Hyped pearl is the perfect angular option when these are in play! I kind of get Uproar vibes from the Hyped Pearl! The Hyped Hybrid for me is basically the same reaction but a little sooner and a little less angular. I would recommend the Hybrid version for lower ball speed players or for the higher rev players. I have not yet changed surfaces on the balls, so the reactions are right out of the box. Layouts for both: 50x5x30 or 4x5x2 Other balls getting a lot of play: Dark Code-4x6x2 UFO Alert-4.5x5x3.75 Altered Reality-4.25x5.25x2 Wolverine-4.25x5.25x2

    Hyped Hybrid

    Posted by Zachary Woelfel on Jan 12th 2022

    The all new Hyped Hybrid features the Hyped™ Core which was created to provide us more overall ball motion than the Hustle™ Core found in the HP1 Line, while also creating a viable step down option (less performance) than the motions found from our HP3 Line of balls. Roto Grip accomplished this goal. The Hyped Core provides a strong overall ball motion from front to back while allowing the ball to hook a large amount down lane. The Hybrid is a little earlier than the Pearl which allows you to play a little straighter angles, however, each ball is only 1-2 boards different from one another with the Hybrid hooking more than the pearl. This ball is an absolute monster for the price point, you will not be disappointed with either the Hybrid or Pearl, go out and get yours today!

    Hyped Hybrid by RGR

    Posted by Rick Mitchell on Dec 18th 2021

    Roto Grip Hyped Hybrid - 60 x 1 1/2 x 55 - 1500 grit sanded on SPL THS and 2000 grit with polished Ball test conditions: Practiced on 44ft THS on SPL and 46ft THS on older HPL The HP2 line just got HYPED UP!!! Knowing Roto Grip King Pin "Schlem" was working a making the HP2 line stronger then ever, the Hyped Hybrid was going to be the first I drill between the Pearl and Hybrid. Knowing in the past on the SPL house I bowl in that pearls are NOT the way to play in or around the track area. The panels are super slick and the pattern is super juicy even with only being 44ft in length. Hitting it with 1500 grit before testing the ball was the best decision I made. It created a better overall look then the Electrify Solid I drilled earlier in the season for there and not a "lengthy" as the UC2 and Zen I was trying to use there. I needed a hybrid with a little stronger pearl percentage and that was easy to change surface as needed. It was very versatile on both patterns and type of lane surfaces. Adapted very well to the surface changes and held up through practice, testing and league. Will keep it at 3000 grit to use for league and practice at Colony Park Lanes being the middle ball, and having the UC3 as the weaker ball, and Idol Helios and RST X*2 for two stronger pieces. The Hyped Hybrid looked really good for two other bowlers I have worked with that don't have a ton of speed, ( 12 to 13 mph off the lane), and more end over end. The ball for them ready all three parts of the lane really well and where they usually have to switch to a stronger ball in length in the 3rd game, they kept the Hyped Hybrid in their hands and felt very comfortable with just making small adjustments as the matches went on. Don't be shy of the colors in this ball - it is a WOLF in Sheep's clothing.

    Hyped Hybrid

    Posted by Nate Garcia on Dec 8th 2021

    2 new releases from Roto Grip on the lower end side have me really excited. Introducing the all new Hyped Hybrid and Hyped Pearl. Both Hypes have the same Hyped Core inside but one has the VTC Pearl reactive coverstock and one has the VTC Hybrid reactive coverstock. These 2 new pieces are a step up from the Hustle line. The Hyped Hybrid and Hyped Pearl are a real bang for your buck when it comes to performance. These bowling balls defiantly don’t lack performance! The Hyped Pearl is very clean through the front part of the lane, retains a lot of energy, and has a sharp but smoother reaction on the back end. The Hyped Hybrid likes to see the lane a lot more throughout all parts of the lane over the Pearl. The Hyped Hybrid is earlier and a lot smoother on the back end compared to the pearl. They Hyped Pearl is better for second transition when you need something clean but controllable and the Hyped Hybrid would be the ball before the pearl if a player needs a weaker option but also something that’ll still see the mid lane and give the player ultimate control. Stop by your local Storm VIP Pro Shop and see what the HYPE is about!

    Hyped Hybrid Review by Kyle & Joel Johnson

    Posted by Kyle & Joel Johnson on Dec 3rd 2021

    Ball Specs: Roto Grip Hyped Hybrid Coverstock: 1500 grit Polished VTC™ Hybrid Reactive Weight Block: Hyped™ Core (Symmetrical) Color: Chrome/Pink/Purple Solid Review: We were sad to see the MVP line fade away but are so glad that they have replaced it with such an amazing line in the Hyped. No matter your talent level you should have a mid level ball in your bag and this piece fits anyone with its versatility. If you are bowling late in block then this shape will benefit you greatly. We feel this ball has the perfect amount of length down lane without that overpowering snap effect some pearl or hybrid balls today have. The continuation is also amazing for a mid level piece.

    The Roto Grip Hyped Hybrid

    Posted by Rick Klimowicz on Nov 30th 2021

    Hyped Hybrid • HP2 Series Coverstock • VTC Hybrid Reactive Finish•1500-grit polished Core • Hyped Symmetric Weight • 15 lbs. RG • 2.52 Differential • .036 Layout • 70 x 4 x 25 Tester PAP • 4 ½ R, 3/8 D Tester Axis Tilt • 12° Testers Rev Rate • 325 Test Pattern • 42’ THS (Typical House Shot) • Modified, Kegel Stone Street The all-new Hyped Series from Roto Grip has hit a new mark of success in their HP2 lineup. With the all-new Hyped Core wrapped with the proven VTC (Versatile Traction Control) Hybrid or Pearl Coverstocks, this new SP2 line delivers fantastic results at a moderate price. I was genuinely impressed with the Hyped line, so let’s take a closer look at how the Hyped Hybrid handled a THS. Roto Grip has done an outstanding job with its development of the all-new Hyped Core. From the start of a typical league night of bowling, the Hyped Core was smooth and consistent. Being a higher-speed and low-rev player, I liked how this core provided a more predictable, well-rounded motion I could depend on for the entire evening! Further, I liked how the Hyped Core, being a low RG or “centered heavy” ball, delivered a strong rolling motion but retained its energy for an explosive impact at the pins. Even when you miss right and pray it gets to the pocket, the Hyped Core delivered results like that of a high-performance ball. So, it’s safe to say the Hyped Core produced what Roto-Grip wanted to achieve - a medium flare or moderate hooking ball with the ideal ball motion! Hybrid coverstocks are a great option on a THS for straighter players, and The VTC Hybrid cover is an excellent choice! Starting on fresh oil, looking straight up the second arrow, I like how this Hybrid cover read early and maintained solid traction in the mid-lane. As the night progressed, the VTC Hybrid continued with a clean and well-blended motion as I started to play inside. And as I moved my eyes to look at 16 - 17, the 1500-grit polished surface handled my high-speed/low-rev hand quite easily. I also enjoyed the confidence I got from the well-defined motion of the VTC Hybrid cover, even as the conditions started to break down. So, for a straighter player, this cover is well suited for your game on a THS. In conclusion, the Hyped Hybrid is an excellent choice for low-rev/high-speed players on a THS. With its brilliant purple/pink combination, the Hyped Hybrid brings a welcoming look and motion to your game at a low to moderate price. It is an excellent all-around choice for league bowlers! It also fits perfectly between the HP3 line, like the Rubicon, and the HP1 line, like the Hustle Wine. So, talk to your local pro shop operator today about the Hyped Hybrid. You will be glad you did!

    Roto Grip Hyped Hybrid Ball Review

    Posted by Ric McCormick on Nov 29th 2021

    The addition to the HP2 line the Hyped Hybrid! This hyped features the VTC Hybrid Reactive Coverstock wrapped around the new Hyped Core! The Hyped Series took place of the MVP line and with the new Hybrid it reminds me of the MVP just cleaner! It will give you that clean motion throughout the lane but will read the body of the lane and be smoother than the Hyped Pearl on the backend! I definitely think the Hyped Pearl and Hyped Hybrid are a great 1-2 punch on when the lanes tend to have a lot of friction! Head over to your local Pro Shop and get yours today!

    Roto Grip Hyped Hybrid Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

    Posted by PJ Haggerty on Nov 29th 2021

    The latest addition to the Roto Grip HP2 line is the Hyped Hybrid. With an RG of 2.52 and differential of .036, the Hyped Hybrid is a perfect addition to the line, especially for medium oil conditions. The masterminds in Utah decided to beef up the HP2 line with the lowest RG core ever made to give the bowler a great compliment to the HP3 line. Also, with a new Hyped Core and hybrid coverstock, I’ve found the Hyped Hybrid to be extremely useful. I’ve drilled one Hyped Hybrid so far and think it rolls great. I drilled it as 4.5 x 4 x 60. I wanted this to be a ball to go to after my Idol Helios starts to get tired but before I need to use a Hustle. The Hyped Hybrid is smoother than the Hyped Pearl and that’s strictly due to coverstock. I’ve seen the high-rev use this one when lanes transition and they need to create some shape. I’ve seen the straighter folks have success with it because it allows them to stay to the right longer and still store energy to run over the 8 pin. Overall, different styles of players can use the Hyped Hybrid. Go drill one!

    Roto Grip Hyped Hybrid by Casey Murphy

    Posted by Casey Murphy on Nov 25th 2021

    Orientation: Right Handed Rev Rate: 400 RPM Speed: 16-17 MPH PAP: 4 ½ over and ½ up Location: Enterprise Park Lanes, Springfield MO Pattern: High Volume THS VLS Layout: Layout 1: 5 x 4 x 2 ½ (pin above bridge) The Hyped Hybrid and Pearl are new pieces in the HP2 line. Both are clean but the Hybrid picks up MUCH earlier and is much slower on the back. But it’s good slower. I’m glad they didn’t do a solid because a lot if times a solid HP2 ball gets into a roll too quick but is too weak to hook. The Hyped Hybrid has the perfect blend of strength and backend. The Hyped Pearl is the perfect compliment. It’s got the same core but it feels like a much different ball. I have it 4-5 feet clean and much more on the back which is to be expected from a pearl. You can honestly drill both and use the Hybrid on the fresh and the Pearl to finish off the night.
