Roto Grip created the Halo bowling ball to dominate heavy oil conditions. This ball introduces the Centrum asymmetric super strong core and pairs it with the proven and strong MicroTrax-S18 coverstock. This pairing produces the same type of motion found with the Hyper Cell and No Rules but takes it up a level in strongness!
Great for heavy oil conditions. Had to polish to get it to go longer. Very early reaction goes through the pins extremely hard.
Still Getting Use To It Haven't Changed Anything From Box To Lane.. May Go 4000 to 5000 With Polish To Add Length Love The Back End Aggression and Pin Action.. GREAT BALL... MY FAV...
Weight: 14 lbs.
Pin Length: 3-1/2-4"
Drilling: 40 x 4 x 25
Pattern Length: 40 ft.
Pattern Volume: Medium
Pattern Type: THS
The HALO has the MicroTrax-S18, solid cover stock, first introduced on the popular Roto Grip Idol ball, wrapped around the asymmetrical Centrum Core. The box finish is 2000 grit, but can be polished or sanded to give several different looks. The color is a mix of coal, fuchsia, and sky blue.
I have used the HALO on a 39 ft., and 40 ft. house/tournament pattern. I found it to be a little early starting up on the 39 ft. pattern, but still continued strong through the pins when i migrated in to 3rd arrow and picked up more head oil. Box finish gave me a good look starting out on the 40 ft, medium volume tournament pattern for a couple games. I was then able to ball down to the IDOL during transition.
I changed the surface to 4000 grit and polished it. This gave me a great look on the 39 ft. medium volume house pattern. It got down the lane better for me, and really faced up strong to the pocket, with very little deflection. It saved so much energy with the polish, it gave me a backend angle that, as a lower rev player, i cannot usually create myself, translating to better carry.
This is an awesome piece of equipment that hits very hard, and can give you earlier or later roll by experimenting with surface changes. It is a good replacement for my Sure Lock, with a little earlier startup. It's earned a regular spot in my arsenal these days.

What is drill protection1/14/2019 - By Rusty
If your new ball cracks when it's drilled by a pro shop, bowling.com will replace your ball free of charge! Manufacturers' warranties typically do not cover for cracking during drilling and drillers are not held responsible for their mistakes or defects in the ball.1/15/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Halo or katana Dragon, which is better on heavy oil1/16/2019 - By Chuck
Which is more aggressive the code X or the Halo?1/22/2019 - By Austin
The Code X will be a tad bit more aggressive than the Halo. The finish on the Code X is a 3000 grit and the finish on the Halo is a 2000 finish. The higher the number of finish, the more length you will have.1/23/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff

I throw 16 mph and throw a 14 lb Storm Timeless. I was wondering if I should get the Halo Pearl, Halo, Physix, or Crux Prime. What do you think would fit into my arsenal the best?3/29/2019 - By Shawn
The PhysiX will be the most similar to the Timeless. If you are wanting something that breaks later, I would recommend the Halo Pearl. The Timeless is a hybrid so it will be in between a solid and a pearl.4/1/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Have This In A 16# Stock Version I Throw It 15.5 to 18.5 Love It But Want It Longer Breaks Early.. Have Motiv Golden Jackal 15# and Intense Heat 16# 200 Average with All Halo My Fav What Would Be Better 4000 or 5000 with Polish or Does My Other Balls Cover What I Think I am Missing?4/3/2019 - By KIng Rah
Which ball will store more energy for the backend when the heads dry out; Halo or Storm Crux Prime?4/23/2019 - By Gene
The Storm Crux Prime will have the Same Hook Potential, Lane Conditions & Coverstock as the Roto Grip Halo. So they will have the same performance.4/23/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
So I throw 18mph with high revs looking for a ball that will snap back to the pocket would you recommend the halo, phaze 2, or physix5/26/2019 - By Scott
Is this ball good for sport patterns9/2/2019 - By Big T.
This ball is rated for heavier oil so if the sport shot is a longer pattern and the lanes were just oiled, this is a great ball to start with. If the lanes are a shorter pattern then this ball would be too strong and you may need something more for medium oil.9/4/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Do you have the coefficient of restitution number for the halo?10/24/2019 - By Jim
