Roto Grip Idol Cosmos Bowling Ball

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.

Due to the overwhelming success and popularity of the IDOL™ Helios, we felt that creating a pearlized version using the same coverstock chemistry was an absolute must that bowlers around the globe needed. So, the Research & Development Team went to work adjusting formulas and testing the different variations of the XtremeTrax™ coverstock material in a pearlized form. All we can say is WOW, we impressed ourselves which means you will be impressed as well. Our sole focus was to create an option that compliments the IDOL Helios, meaning just a bit cleaner through the front of the lane while providing more motion and reaction down lane. Needless to say, we not only hit this one out of the park, but we also hit it into another galaxy!

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.

Hey guys welcome back to the channel today we’re going to be having a look at the different surface options you can go with on an idol cosmos. I got another idol cosmos after my first one my first one i shined up i’ve gone with the same layout this time but i’ve left it in box finish so we’ve got two idol cosmos. A five and a half inch pin a three inch mass bias and a three inch buffer let’s see we’re going to be bowling on the scorpion pattern so let’s see the differences see how much difference that polish makes how much quicker it is and how much overall hook is different i think you’ll be surprised let’s see what we got
 
We’ll start with the duller one read the mid lane pretty strong from that shot you’d probably want to make i’d probably move i might move one and zero off that maybe two and one here’s the shiny one we’ll just go alternate shots see what this does,  further down the lane and much more violent off the spot kind of what you’d expect i don’t think i’m showing anybody anything new there what i do think that i like is the fact that even though i’d added extra shines that cosmos it still stayed really strong which is perfect maybe moved a little bit too far there got my angles open i think that i would have probably got away with
that if it had been using the shiny one because it would have been able to keep
going more down the lane let’s see we have to make the move with the shiny one anyway after the four nine let’s just stay in the same place as that last one
didn’t get it as far right oh that ball is sharp once you make it shiny i find it in the small time that i’ve had to use the two of them wow i almost missed that in a small time that i’ve had to use them um i like the polish on this ball a little better
um i feel like it gives me a ball that fits a bigger gap in my bag the door one i feel falls more into like phase two type of category and i’ve got the face too i don’t need another bowler i moved i moved two and two left with that one tried to keep it more in the oil so they wouldn’t like kind of blow out so much all right we got the shiny one back we’ll move one off the last shot see if we can open this angle up a little bit there we go that’s what we like to see if you don’t have a face tour in your bag the cosmos dull will definitely fit a gap around there just for me
i already have the zen and the phase two and i kind of needed a ball that was
underneath those so by shining it i feel like i created that or created the shape that i would have i don’t know that it really made it that much weaker these definitely look like they’re gonna be a good for me a good one-two punch the shiny and the dull whether i actually use them in that way or whether i just end up with two shiny ones i’m not sure these were kind of just these were video balls or should i say i drilled them for the videos so i kind of just wanted to do something that would give me the best idea of what the ball did i definitely wouldn’t carry a dull and shiny one with the same layout and say like a six or an eight ball arsenal like i was going to nationals but with the lucy coming up a few regionals i can definitely see it’s worthwhile having um a dull and a shiny one because they they can be close enough that once the pattern starts to transition you can just go straight from the door one to the shiny one and not really have to worry about it but like i say if i was building an eight ball arsenal i’d have to have a pretty different layout on the dual one to make the gap bigger we got the 10 frame already um yeah let’s move let’s see how much further left we can move with this shiny one slow the speed down well that was awful wow and that’s why we keep practicing folks because that one was a terrible effort okay
all right let’s give it one more effort see if we can get a better reaction than that for the last shot all right slower speed get your legs zombie there we go so what do we end up with 236. like i say the the shiny cosmos i don’t think it’s that much weaker than the dull one i just think it’s longer and way more violent off it i personally like that because i feel like it fits in a gap that i didn’t have more but either way they both look like pretty good options if you want to leave it dull and you have a phase two you might need to make the cosmos a little bit weaker layout if you want to have a decent gap between the two
