Roto Grip Hustle Ink Bowling Ball Review

The Hustle Ink is Smooth… First Impressions From first ball, I instantly connected with the ball motion. Clean and smooth down lane. I love the solid color. Then I thought, is this fresh pattern right for this ball? More on that later. Our Testers: Tamer Elbaga (Lefty) RPM: 375 rpm PAP: 5 & 3/8 up […]

Roto Grip Show Off Bowling Ball Review

The New Roto Grip Ball Shows Off… First Impressions Sitting on the rack, the Show Off looked like it was going to be strong. It is strong. Really, it’s that cheap?!? Our Testers: Tamer Elbaga (Lefty) RPM: 375 rpm PAP: 5 & 3/8 up Average Speed: 18 mph (at release) Axis tilt: low Axis rotation: […]

Roto Grip No Rules Exist Bowling Ball Review

The No Rules Exist continues the outlaw legacy… First Impressions Man, another huge top end ball from Roto Grip. Some snow tires set early with less backend, this one has backend on top of it’s big teeth up front. Our Testers: Tamer Elbaga (Lefty) RPM: 375 rpm PAP: 5 & 3/8 up Average Speed: 18 […]

Motiv Forza SS Bowling Ball Review

The Forza SS…It’s a Hot Rod First Impressions If you were to go with Motiv’s chart, you would think the Forza SS would roll a little smoother and stronger than the Chronic Paranoia but it’s definitely more ball everywhere. More on that later but I must say I very much enjoy the Sigma core and […]

Motiv Tank Rampage Bowling Ball Review

The Tank Rampage continues the old is new trend… First Impressions What can I say, the Tank Rampage is the latest urethane ball that is the rage. It is stronger than other urethane pieces we’ve thrown. Our Testers: Tamer Elbaga (Lefty) RPM: 375 rpm PAP: 5 & 3/8 up Average Speed: 18 mph (at release) […]

Motiv Tag Cannon Bowling Ball Review

The Cannon is the Tag you want… First Impressions The Tag Cannon was very easy to throw on our typical medium house shot. It was a one man show! Our Testers: Tamer Elbaga (Lefty) RPM: 375 rpm PAP: 5 & 3/8 up Average Speed: 18 mph (at release) Axis tilt: low Axis rotation: medium Test […]

Storm Match Up and Match Up Pearl Bowling Ball Review

These Balls Match Up… First Impressions It has been a long time since I found a Storm ball that is “lower end” that actually plays the way I want it to, an actual “ball down”. The Match Up Pearl is really a ball down and that’s a great thing in my book. The Match Up […]

Storm Code Red Bowling Ball Review

Storm has the Code…again First Impressions I like the Code Red more than the Code Black. It’s smoother overall and while the Code Black was the prototypical Storm skid/flip motion, this one is much closer to the smoothness of the HyRoad. Our Testers: Tamer Elbaga (Lefty) Style: Speed/Rev Matched Tweener RPM: 375 rpm PAP: 5 […]

Pyramid Curse Bowling Ball Review

The Pyramid Curses the pins… First Impressions This is the one. The Curse is my favorite Pyramid bowling ball thus far. Good length and a strong consistent move with the best drive through the pins of all the Pyramid balls we’ve tested so far. Excellent match up to our test pattern. Our Testers: Tamer Elbaga […]

Pyramid Pathogen X Bowling Ball Review

The X factor… First Impressions Like I expected, the Pathogen X has easy length and flip down lane. For those who like the skid/flip reaction, I think this could be a killer, especially for summer THS where lower volumes typically prevail. Our Testers: Tamer Elbaga (Lefty) Style: Speed/Rev Matched Tweener RPM: 375 rpm PAP: 5 […]
