The Roto Grip Devour joins the Outcry and the Uproar in the HP2 lineup. This ball utilizes a new core called Late Roll 56 that is a modified version of the Neutron core from the Wrecker. The RG of the Devour is pretty similar to both the Uproar and Outcry, which both used the Late Roll 51 core. The Devour offers slightly more differential and a more aggressive coverstock, allowing it to have more total hook than these previously mentioned balls. The solid 54MH coverstock comes out of the box at a 3000 grit finish, which is rougher than the other two balls currently in the HP2 line.

This ball was best for our testers on our medium test pattern. It provides earlier traction in the midlane than the Outcry, but it is not as early
