Roto Grip Idol

The Roto Grip Idol bowling ball begins the next generation of upper mid-performance bowling balls. This ball introduces the Ikon core which helps provide good backend by pushing the limits of a symmetrical core. This ball also introduces the MicroTrax-S18 Solid Reactive coverstock. This cover uses Nano technology and provides more traction and is more aggressive than previous coverstocks in this line. This ball is ideally used on medium to heavy oil conditions. *There will be some variance in color due to the Nano material. This is due to "phasing". Some of the balls with phasing have a white color in them and some may appear to have water spots. There may be a variety of hues of the Magenta/Purplish color.

Yes I'll buy this again

This ball you have to have in your bag, It hits the pockets and explodes into the pins. This ball drives down lanes and works well in oil or when it dry up, you can still use this ball. Straight out the box shot 278. Just had for 3 weeks. Love it

Question:

How does this compare to Hyroad Nano...in terms of strength (front to back)

5/11/2018 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Roto Grip Idol will be more aggressive considering it is an Upper Mid performance ball whereas the HyRoad Nano is only a Mid Performance ball.

Question:

What's the difference between this and the phase 2

5/16/2018 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The only difference between the two balls will be the grit finish. The Phaze II will have a 3000 grit finish giving it more length than the Roto Grip Idol. The Roto Grip Idol will have a 2000 grit finish, giving it less length.

Question:

How does this compare to the Roto-Grip All-Out Show Off

6/7/2018 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

There are several key differences between this and the All-Out Show Off. This ball has a solid cover with a duller 2000 grit finish which will make this ball read earlier on the lanes and it can grip better so it will handle more oil. The All-Out Show Off is a hybrid cover with a polished finish to make it go longer on the lanes and be sharper on the backend.

7/26/2018 - By

Question:

Is the cover to thin? I am having problem with the shell cracking around both finger and thumb

9/27/2018 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The coverstock is not any thinner on this ball than most of the performance balls. If a ball cracks it is more than likely a defect in the ball and how that specific ball was made but it is not something that would be on every ball. If the cracks are around the finger holes it could also be from the insert glue that is used to glue in the inserts or slugs in the ball. Too much of the insert glue can leave the cover brittle near the finger hole and it sometimes results in small spiderweb cracks around the finger holes. They will not likely get worse and the ball should still function with no problems.

Question:

How would this compare to the sure lock ? Is it Stronger or weaker ?

11/9/2018 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The only difference between the two would be the lane conditions. The Sure Lock is for Heavy oil lane conditions only and the Idol is for medium-heavy lane conditions. The Idol would give you more range with the lane conditions and the Sure Lock is limited to only heavy oil lane conditions.
