The Roto Grip Idol is back, and this time its set to light up the lanes! Introducing the Roto Grip Idol Helios, featuring the proven Ikon core, wrapped in a new XtremeTrax™ Coverstock. This high performance bowling ball will be a great match up on medium to heavy oil patterns.
On the inside you will find the low RG, higher differential symmetrical Ikon™ Core made famous in the original IDOL™. But on the outside, it’s the coverstock of this ball that is going to help you outshine and outscore your competition. Our newest coverstock technology known as XtremeTrax™, features “chemically charged” nano particles which create the highest amount of responsiveness to friction we have ever seen from a nano particle material. But don’t worry, the nano particles will still provide plenty of traction in oil before the “chemical charge” kicks in down lane to provide more change of direction than the original IDOL before it.
Originally introduced in the IDOL™ back in March of 2018, the Ikon Core has become a fan favorite and staple in the arsenals of all the top professionals around the globe. This low RG, high differential symmetrical core revs up in the midlane while providing outstanding continuation down lane which allows it to be used by all styles of players from any angle on the lane.
Derived from countless hours of mixing, formulating, and testing, the Xtreme Traction (XtremeTrax™) material pushes us into boundaries of scientific chemistry. We started with the base materials of our MicroTrax™ coverstock and went down a new path in terms of chemistry by adding different chemicals which in turn created “chemical charges” to the nano-particles, thus making a material that not only digs in on heavy oil, but also provides more responsiveness and reaction down lane than traditional nano materials.

900 global zen master bowling ball
The S77 Response™ Solid Coverstock was the obvious choice to follow up on the success of the S77 Response™ pearl coverstock. The Solid version of this cover will provide the most overall hook we have ever put in the 800 Series. The Zen Master™ will be a great ball to use on medium-heavy patterns.
The Meditate™ Core is the biggest core we have ever put into a bowling ball!! A bigger core means more hitting power combined with a more consistent reaction. Throughout testing the Meditate™ Core provided that wide “footprint on the lane that all bowlers love to see. The Zen Master™ pushes the limits of core dynamics.
