|Name:||VTC Pearl Reactive|
|Box Finish:||1500 Grit Polished|
|Color:||Black / Carolina / Charcoal|
The Roto Grip Hyped Pearl uses the same symmetrical Hyped core and the same 1500 grit polished box finish as the Hyped Hybrid. The only changes between these two bowling balls are the color scheme and the coverstock. The VTC Pearl Reactive veneer is the same cover that can be found on the balls in Roto Grip’s current HP1 line. As one would expect when comparing a hybrid to a pearl, the Hyped Pearl was cleaner through the front than the Hyped Hybrid and changed directions harder when it saw friction.
The easy length from the pearlized and polished coverstock gave Stroker the best reaction out of all three testers on our dry test pattern. The slightly shorter length of the pattern had the ball revving up in the perfect spot to provide plenty of pin carry. When thrown by itself, the Hyped Pearl didn’t feel like it did much to change the pattern, allowing Stroker to stay put for a long period of time. When following stronger reactive resin balls, his reaction got even better as he opened his angles. When following urethane, the ball was a bit sensitive to the carrydown when thrown at its polished box finish. Stroker
