Roto Grip RST X-2

Following the success of the RST X-1 Roto Grip took the same core and wrapped it in the proven eTrax pearl reactive coverstock with some modifications to create the Roto Grip RST X-2. The combination of the RST core and the eTrax PLUS Pearl Reactive coverstock creates a big footprint the length of the lane and maintains its reaction to friction on the backend. This big hooking ball is ideal on medium to medium/heavy oil.

Pros:

Color, Very Strong Back End

Cons:

Not for Heavy Oil, Took while to find the "sweet spot"

Best Uses:

Medium Oil (Second ball out of the bag)

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love It

Got this ball on based on the fact the GF has the RST-1 and it worked very well for her, but I already had a solid in my bag, so that's why I went with this RST-2 and I don't have a high-performance pearl in my bad. Since I figured out when and how to throw this ball, my average has climbed to 205. Does this ball work every time or at different bowling centers, of course not, but overall this ball has gone beyond my expectations.

I'm a 2 handed bowler, speed around 16-17 with a 450 rev rate. and have a pin-up (between the bridge).

Third ball after 30 year Lay-off

Got this ball a few days ago and only have about a half dozen games on it. Used it in League the other night from start to finish (3 games). I didn't have to move at all and it held my shot. Was consistently around the pocket. I would highly recommend this ball. I love it.

Question:


compare this to the dark code thanks

8/23/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


Both balls have a pearl coverstock and 1500 grit polished finish out of the box. The weight block on the RST X2 will read a little later on the lane but the Dark Code will have a slightly stronger flare potential.

Question:


Compare this ball to the Zing

1/4/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


The Radical Zing! was a solid coverstock and would read earlier on the lanes while the RST X-2 is a pearl coverstock and designed to go longer and have a sharper backend hook.

Question:


Compare to the storm all road

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


The RST-X2 is going to have a stronger hook potential and give you more length than the All Road. The RST X2 is also designed to work in medium to heavier oil while the All Road was more for medium to lighter oil.
