Roto Grip Hyped Bowling Ball Trilogy – House vs Sport Lane Patterns

This is our comparison of the Hyped Trilogy on both house and sport patterns!

 

Roto Grip Hyped Solid Bowling Ball

Following the footsteps of the versions before it, the HYPED SOLID is here to compliment the HP2 Line of balls. Its VTC™ (Versatile Traction Control) Solid coverstock will provide earlier traction on the lane than previous versions making it ideal for just a little more oil, or, making it the perfect ball when the friction down lane seems unmanageable and you need more overall control. This ball definitely takes VERSATILITY to the MAX! So if you weren’t already excited, now is the time you should get HYPED!

Engineered For – Medium Oil conditions

From the beginning, the end goal for the Hyped Core was to create a core design that would provide us more overall ball motion than the Hustle Core found in the HP1 Line, while also creating a viable step down option (less performance) than the motions found from our HP3 Line of balls. In the end, our R&D Team hit it out of the park with creating a core shape that provides medium flare and the ideal ball motion for the HP2 Line of balls moving forward.

Roto Grip Hyped Pearl Bowling Ball

We collectively gathered our thoughts and perspectives on what we felt the HP2 line truly stands for and what it should be. We then went to work developing and constructing what is now known as the Hyped Core. Measuring in as the lowest RG core we have ever offered in the HP2 line, the Hyped Core provides more overall motion than the balls offered in the HP1 line, while providing a touch less motion than our HP3 line offerings. Thus, making this one of the best options we have ever constructed for the HP2 line of balls in history. So, if you weren’t already excited, it is now time to GET HYPED!

hello and welcome to another video now
that we have the hype solid here to
complete the trilogy in the line we’re
going to compare them all and see how
they fit together James will be featured
in this video on both house and Sport
patterns we’ll be on the house shop
first I’ll put the graph up in a minute
after checking out the numbers all three
Bulls use the VTC cover formula which is
also used on the hustle line as well the
hyped core comes in at a 252 RG and an
o36 differential and 15 pounds so dead
medium RG and a differential on the low
side of medium medium strength cover
medium strength core house shot and
transition Killers house shot is similar
to Kegel’s easy street but higher volume
so it keeps us a little more honest than
some but it’s not terribly difficult
we’re also bowling on new pins the hyped
Pearl and hybrid came out together and
were rather different we’ll start with
the Pearl and we’re on a moderate amount
of transition which is where it makes
its home about three to four games bold
on this Lane prior the Pearl is pretty
clean and round it’s like a baby IQ
Emerald with the core numbers it’s not
terribly early but it’s real only and it
flares just enough to get some solid Oil
ring separation without flaring a ton
Angels a huge fan of her IQ emerald and
the hyped Pearl has stuck around for her
too because it’s a longer and sharper
version for if the IQ is too early or
too slow James was also a fan of the IQ
Emerald but because of how early and
round it is it’s more limited use for
him he’s found more utility out of the
IQ towards solid and then going down
into the hyped Pearl because it’s more
of a different look than the emerald is
from the IQ solid it’s a little too on
top of the they’re a little too on top
of each other the hyped Pearl is more of
a late block transition look for him
because it’s just not that aggressive
but when it’s the look or when it has
the friction it’s incredibly versatile
it does need friction desperately but if
you have it you can do virtually
whatever you want to with it we’re going
to look at the solid next because the
hybrid is a horse of a different color
from a shape perspective and this is on
the fresh which is where it will be the
most is useful on a house shot at least
the hype solid is obviously the
strongest of the three overall partially
because the Pearl and hybrid were really
shiny but even if the surface is the
same on all of them because they’re all
the same formula the cover types do
follow the typical hierarchy in this
case Pearl is the weakest hybrid’s a
little stronger solid is the strongest
however the hybrid really flips the
script on length and shape we’ll see
that next the solid is right in between
the two on shape the Pearl is very round
and continuous the solid is halfway
between round and an arc and the hybrid
is a straight up climbing Arc the solid
is virtually a slightly higher RG
slightly higher diff IQ tour solid not
quite as early a little more shape also
with smidge weaker very very good ball
for medium conditions I like the way
that it looked for James so much that I
got one of my own I did have a
comparison video of it with the IQ tour
solid and hustle camo if you want to
check that out but it goes back it goes
to both league and two sport tournament
months obviously it can annihilate a
house shot too James just about didn’t
miss this entire session now the hyped
hybrid this is on a slightly transition
Lane about two games bold and I don’t
know how a ball with the same core and
same cover formula as the two other
balls can look so different it’s a hard
Arc very phase two-ish with the climbing
continuous Arc and while the Pearl and
even the solid are fairly clean up front
the hybrid is kind of chuggy and hits
the lane wanting to slow down it’s a
very different look from the other two
and though it’s technically in between
the other two on traction or hook
potential the fact that it’s actively
trying to slow down gives it more time
to hook also because it continues to
continue it’s ridiculously insanely
versatile and very responsive to
physical adjustments it’s a little iffy
from straighter but it’s because it
wants to get up go it wants to get going
so soon and wind up so much that he’s
having to virtually launch it but once
he he gives up and hooks the whole Lane
just oh my God Becky to put it as simply
as possible it’s a baby phase two rolls
just like it obviously weaker of course
this ball is being slept on I think
because anything Pearl or solid is
always going to be popular and while I
think they’re all outstanding and
continue the continue the tradition of
absolute units in the hp2 line the
hybrid really isn’t getting its due
praise or attention I could watch this
ball roll all day long and I don’t think
anyone’s going to complain about
watching James throw the ball to begin
with while he rarely gets down to balls
of this strength the hybrid has hung
around the most because of the amount of
utility he has with it the Pearl is at
the very bottom of the bag he uses it
went as as often as he can but the the
friction that he needs to use it just
doesn’t show up very often and the solid
is close enough to a handful of other
balls he has that it shares time but
when the friction’s there for the hybrid
it’s a real Contender for use now let’s
move to the sport pattern and we’ll work
our way down from the top so we’ll go
solid to the hybrid to the Pearl for
start orders this is a little unfair
because as we’re looking at the the
pattern here 42 feet 28.4 mils just over
a two to one ratio this condition on the
fresh is too long and heavy for these
balls but using the same pattern makes
it easier to see the difference between
uh all the balls that we bowl on this
condition with and it gives you in a it
gives you an idea how strong they all
really are in comparison to each other
as we saw in the Supernova versus Nova
Video there’s a pretty big difference in
cover strengths there and VTC is even
weaker than r2x that’s on the Nova in
addition to obviously being symmetric
and medium to low strength symmetrics at
that none of these are strong enough for
the fresh but as the lanes break down
all three of these are viable on this
pattern you can see the solid giving a
valiant effort it’s controlling the lane
well it just doesn’t have the traction
to hang out on the fresh I think it’s
obvious it’ll be a good look once more
friction shows up like we saw in the
house pattern it’s capable of chasing it
as far left as you want to or can chase
it it just needs the friction to show up
to be able to do that if he keeps it
closer to the pocket it’s fine and as we
get deeper with a little transition it
starts warming up getting to the hybrid
I had to double check my footage because
this kind of looks like the house shot
but there’s a there’s a bit of
transition here to work with too that’s
kind of the idea as we get deeper into
it you’ll see that there’s hang to the
right and it’s flatter in the middle but
how chuggy this ball is really shows up
here on this pattern the fact that it
hits the lane slowing down and wanting
to move gives it a huge advantage over
the other two I can’t explain what
creates this look if you remember the
MVP and MVP Pearl they were both quite
chuggy and strong also despite nothing
on paper really explaining it seeing it
on the sport pattern versus the other
two balls really illustrates what I’m
talking about because on the house shot
it’s like okay yeah I can kind of see it
but it’s quite a bit earlier and
stronger than the other two on the sport
pattern and it’s because of how chuggy
it is and how much it wants to slow down
when I say chuggy and slow down this is
what that looks like the ball hits the
lane wanting to just grind to a halt and
that gives it all kinds of time to
actually actually hook a ball that
either doesn’t roll or rev or want to
slow down early or that even Lopes will
get down the lane much easier than if it
doesn’t have the traction on top of that
it’s just not it’s just not ever going
to get moving even though the traction
level this ball is fairly low once again
it hits the lane wanting to move it
rolls it chugs it slows down it just
gives itself more time to get going than
the other two lastly the hyped Pearl and
it’s more the same as the solid just
less of it you can see the traction
level isn’t there though it also makes
do you can tell it’s just not quite the
right ball and that he’s having to make
it work this does illustrate what I was
talking about with the hybrid really
well though when the hybrid hits
friction it’s ready to go so the move is
stronger and more Dynamic where the
Pearl has to see a fair amount of
friction to get going if the Pearl gets
a little wide it labors but if the
hybrid got wide it would was able to
recover a lot better however the
trade-off of course was that the hybrid
didn’t give him anything inside well
with the Pearl he not only has a little
push inside he can just straight up play
inside and keep it closer to the pocket
that’s where it’s that’s where it’s
happier at anyway however again I think
that overall the hybrid gave him the
most consistent and predictable look as
the lanes continue to transition though
this might change the hyped Pearl is
very good when they get drier this is
why this is so unfortunately subjective
any ball when used from the proper place
on the proper conditions is going to
look good yes even the Zen master it’s
so hard to create the proper situation
and nail down every single variable when
making videos you just have to take this
all as general information that you use
to make informed decisions and not be
suckered in by Pearl this all of that a
Sim that pin up pin down whatever the
line of hyped balls is obviously very
good and very versatile and it’d be hard
if not impossible to find better options
options for the price especially as
equipment continues to get more and more
expensive the hp2 line has produced a
bunch of these over the last several
years and the Hypes are no exception
blah blah staff or high blah blah but
they’re just good I don’t know what else
I’m supposed to say thanks as always to
my outstanding patreon members and great
Discord Community thank you for watching
and may the strikes be with you
