Roto Grip UFO

Roto Grip UFO
Layout: 4 X 4 X 2 Storm Vector Layout
Rev Rate: 325 rpm, 7 degree of axis tilt, 40 degree of axis rotation
Testing Information: 41-foot THS (medium to light volume)
Kegel Machine - Brunswick Anvilane
E.T. core wrapped in MicroTrax S-20 solid reactive coverstock equals a strong, rolling orb that plays well on medium to heavy volumes of oil. The UFO might not be the preferred choice (not that it couldn't play) on a house pattern but will be a good 1A ball in your tournament bag. I have the UFO with a touch less overall hook than the Halo solid. The MicroTrax S-20 cover gets the UFO through the fronts easily and the backend motion for us was strong, but controllable. Tournament season is upon us so I will get to spend a little more time with the UFO in the coming weeks.
Continue to bowl up a Storm!

UFO review

The UFO is the new HP4 solid from roto grip. It offers the MicroTrax-S20 solid cover with the E.T core. The numbers on this ball are 2.52 RG .054 DIFF and a mass bias of .016. I have mine drilled at 60 X 3.5 X 25 which allows me to move inside and throw 13 to 7. Honestly I was pleasantly surprised in how much the UFO got of the spot. The MicroTrax allows the ball to get down the lane before making a big move towards the pocket. The UFO is comparable to the Gravity Evolve in that the are both high end solid asymmetrics, but the cover of the UFO gets further down lane with a massive backend where the gravity has SPEC cover and Cataylst core which makes it early and smooth. I cant say enough good things about the UFO. if you're looking for a big solid that doesn't hook too early but retains energy this is the ball. Get to your local pro shop and pick one up.

Question:

How would this ball compare to phaze 3 .would it be similar to motiv forge fire

12/30/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This is going to be stronger than the Phaze 3 and it would react earlier on the lanes than the Phaze 3. This will also be a little stronger and earlier than the Forge Fire but they are a closer comparison because they are both considered high performance.

Question:

How would this compare to the No Rules Pearl?

1/14/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The UFO is designed to read the lanes earlier so the hook will be a smoother arc hook down the lane. The No Rules Pearl was designed to go long and then have a sharp backend hook at the end. So that was the biggest difference but both balls are high performance and work in heavier lane conditions.

Question:

How would this ball compare to my halo

1/17/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The UFO has a newer and stronger cover than the Halo and the weight block is also a little stronger too so that would give you a little stronger hook potential on the UFO compared to the Halo. They do have a similar midlane hook reaction because they have the same finish out of the box.

They do have a similar midlane hook reaction because they have the same finish out of the box. I would also give the UFO a slightly stronger hook potential than the Crux Prime because it has a little stronger weight block and with the newer cover it will likely give you a slightly stronger hook potential.

Question:

I’m low rev bowler, having trouble with my code black on slick lanes will this help

1/24/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Code Black would have a polished finish out of the box so in really oily conditions it may skid too far on and not come back strong enough but the Roto Grip UFO has a duller finish which helps the ball grip in heavier oil and it can start hooking earlier on the lanes so you should be able to get more movement on this ball and then you can maybe have the Code Black as a back up for when the UFO gets too aggressive on the lanes.

Question:

How does this compare to the Physis

2/1/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The UFO will start to react a little earlier on the lanes due to the duller 2000 grit finish and solid cover compared to the Physix which was a 3000 grit finished hybrid cover. They are both going to have a strong midlane reaction and good continuation.

Question:

I bought a hyper cell about a year and a half ago. it worked fantastic until the lanes i bowl on started using a different kind of lubricate on the lanes. my ball doesn't even react anymore. can i use the new UFO to create movement for me on the new lubricate? and if so how do I have it drilled??

2/3/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

It is hard to say how much stronger this would be compared to your Hyper Cell because the Hyper Cell may be weaker now after a year and half of using it. Over time the balls will load up with oil and lose some of their hook so part of the reason that the Hyper Cell is not hooking much could be because of this. The UFO is one of the strongest balls Roto Grip has made to day so it should work in heavier oil if you see a lot of oil. You can ask your driller to give you most aggressive layout for this so that it gives you the best hook potential.

Question:

How does this ball compare to the idol ?

2/20/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The UFO is a high performance ball so it will have a stronger hook potential than the Idol which is an upper mid performance. Also the UFO works better in heavier conditions while the Idol can work down into medium oil and in some heavy oil.

What's the difference between the ufo and the axiom

3/30/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Question:

Is ball good for a fullroller

4/27/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

There will be a full roller drilling layout available for this ball so you would just need to make sure your driller lays this out for a full roller to get this ball to give you the best reaction.

Question:

What ball is going to have more hook the Halo or the UFO? I have a Halo and really like it.

4/30/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The UFO is the newer release so it may have a very small amount more of hook potential but it is not much. They are very very similar in almost every way but the UFO may have a little more length.

Question:

how about this for a 3 ball arsenal. i bowl on fresh THS stroker style.FIRST BALL OUT IS UFO THEN OMEGA CRUX THEN ASTRO PHSIX .. DO YOU THINK ANY OF THESE ARE TO SIMILAR TO EACH OTHER ? I feel I will get a different angle to the pocket with each one. thanks for your input

5/20/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

There are some differences in the bowling balls which give them different reads on the lanes. However, they are all high performance balls and require heavier oil to work correctly. The AstroPhysix can work down into some medium oil but it will be very strong on medium oil so you may need to mix in some options that are designed for medium or medium to lighter oil in case the lanes start to dry out by the end of the night. Also, you may have to drop to an upper mid performance or mid performance to be able to get a ball for lighter oil because most high performance balls need more oil to work correctly.

Question:

Can UFO be polished

8/29/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Yes, if you needed more length you could polish the UFO and it would react later on the lanes. The duller finish helped this handle heavier oil better so if you add polish it may not handle as heavy of oil but it would work well in medium-heavy.
