The Roto Grip Menace is a new release in Roto Grip’s high performance HP4 line. It pairs the 74H solid reactive coverstock with the asymmetrical Cage core that was found in the Sinister. The Menace comes out of the box at a rough 3000 grit finish, giving it a lot traction for easily handling slick lane conditions.

The Menace was best for all of our testers on our heavy volume test pattern. They were all three able to quickly find a line to the pocket, with Cranker liking his motion just a little more than the other testers. The added recovery downlane compared to his Hyper Cell made this ball go through the pins much better for him, without giving up much total hook in exchange. All three testers
