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.

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.

Have an answer to this question?


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.

Compare this ball to the Zing

Have an answer to this question?


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.
