Professional bowlers on tour, and those that want to bowl like them, like bowling balls that offer more hook and continuous down lane motion while driving through the pins. It is this type of bowler that the Roto Grip RST X-1 hybrid reactive bowling ball was designed for. This high-performance asymmetrical ball has a core that produces consistent core torque as well as energy transfer down lane. This RST (Roto Star Tour) core is wrapped with a versatile MicroTrax Hybrid coverstock which generates ideal responsiveness on both oil and friction.
Continuous, smooth through midlane
Medium to Heavy Oil
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The Roto Grip RST X-1 has a low RG value of 2.53 a high differential of 0.053 and a low intermediate differential of 0.016. Roto Grip came out with a new combination of the RST or Roto Star Tour Core and MicroTrax Hybrid Cover.The core cover combination will help produce an optimum balance of traction through the midlane while providing responsiveness to the friction and consistent core torque and energy transfer downlane. A little tidbit about the core, when you drill the thumb, you will always end up in that void space on either side of the core which in turn helps the ball maintain its dynamics after drilling which in turn helps maintain a high level of core torque downlane.I have the RST X-1 drilled pin up with the layout of 40 x 3 5/8 by 25 to give me a smooth reaction through the midlane and continuation off the breakpoint.I did a ball comparison with the Storm Parallax up first, as you can see the Parallax leaves the flat ten showing the strength of the RST X-1 compared to the Parallax which is also a Hybrid cover.Second comparison is to the Roto Grip Rubicon which is drilled pin down, the Rubicon has more of a bench mark reaction very smooth through the midlane and continuation off the spot but again leaves the flat 10.Third comparison is the Storm Proton Physix, the Proton Physix here I was able to create more angle to the pocket downlane and open up the lane more than the RST X-1. The RST X-1 will sit in my bag in between the Storm Proton Physix and Rubicon.
The RST X-1 features the new Roto Star Core wrapped in MicroTrax Hybrid. For me, I am able to use this ball on a variety of patterns. I am able to use this in league and not have to worry about what it will do. It is a great benchmark shape for an asymmetrical ball. I can see myself bringing this ball everywhere I go whether that be tournaments or league. I also see this ball as a stronger and more versatile PhysiX. If you liked that ball you will not be disappointed with the RST X-1!!

It handles the lanes better than any other ball that I have used right out of the box.

How does this ball compare to motiv forge fire will it go longer
They are very comparable actually. Both are high performance and both have hybrid coverstocks. However, the out of the box finish on the RST-X is a little duller so it may read just a little earlier than the Forge Fire.
How does this ball compare to the frequency
They are similar in some ways because they both are high performance balls with a hybrid coverstock but the duller finish on the Frequency will help it read earlier and the weight block also on the Frequency reads earlier for a smoother hook. The RST-X is going to have a little more length but not too late like a skid flip ball. It will still read with a strong arc hook but just a little later than the Frequency.
would the RST X1 be good for a full roller
Yes, this could work fine for a full roller but you just have to make sure your driller does a full roller layout so it reacts best with your release.
How does compare to the Storm Crux Prime?
This will read a little later on the lanes and give you a little more angular hook than the Crux Prime. The RST-X has a hybrid cover with 3000 grit finish which will give you more length than the solid cover and 2000 grit finish on the Crux Prime.
How does this ball compare to the Storm Physix
The reactions are going to be extremely close actually. Both are high performance bowling balls with a hybrid coverstock and finished at 3000 grit out of the box. The weight blocks for both balls in 15lbs will also have the same RG dif but the RST-X1 will have a slightly later reaction from the RG. This is only a slight difference though because so many of the other features are very very similar.
How does this compare with the Hammer Redemtion Solid?
The Redemption Solid would read earlier on the lanes than the RST X-1. The RST X-1 had a hybrid coverstock and slightly smoother finish at 3000 grit to help it go a little longer on the lanes saving more of its hook for a slightly more angular hook.
Would this ball be a good fit in between a hammer fugitive pearl and a rotogrip idol.
This ball would actually be considered stronger than the Idol. Which the Idol has a slightly duller finish to help it grip earlier on the lanes the RST X-1 is considered a high performance ball while the Idol is an upper mid performance ball so this would indicate that the RST X-1 would be the stronger hook potential.
I am thinking about buying this ball, I have thrown it during demos and really like it, but I am wondering what balls it would pair with if I had a 3 ball setup without a spare ball
If you started with the RST X-1 as your first ball out of the bag for heavier oil you could have the Idol Synergy as a good medium oil option and then something like the Hustle RAP as a lighter oil option to give you a decent 3 ball arsenal.
Due to the time it takes to produce the Roto Grip RST X-1 ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
