The picture attached is of Darrin's 1989 UT-Arlington college bowling team after winning the Las Vegas Invitational. His 300 game and 815 series with the SHOUT were great first time accomplishments. But, watching his daughter, Tori, learning to bowl is just as sweet! Without her interest he isn't sure he would have gotten the itch to bowl again.
Wrecker and Shout = great combo!
Date: 5.10.2013 Bowler: Mike Pucino Location: Liverpool, New York Pro Shop: Mick's Pro Shop - drilled myself
During the New York State Open Championships tournament this year, I was fortunate to shoot my 10th career 300 using the Roto Grip Wrecker. As they started to break down I was able to switch to my Shout, running the next 9 in a row, finishing with the front 21. Great line of equipment as always!

Had the Shout drilled up on the second to the last night of league. This ball works great with my style of bowling. Game 1 206 just a little unsure on the ball but I made the choice to stay with the ball. I went 262,and 269 the last two games for 737 and won all my points that night, Unfortunately we did not win the league.
"Love the new stuff Roto Grip has come out with recently!"
SHOUT strings em for career best!
Date: 4.11.2013 Bowler: Elton Ratliff Location: Lubbock, Texas Pro Shop: Hank Jordan / Custom Drilling
Mr Ratliff long time Lubbock Tx. Bowler drilled up a Shout then decided to not only shoot his 3rd but his 4th career 300 then finished with 826 for his 1st career 800. Elton threw 26 straight strikes for the back to back 300's. The Shout was drilled pin over his middle finger. This was the first ever back to back in Lubbock bowling history. Bowled at South Plains Lanes Lubbock TX.
"This is what bowling is all about I am so proud of you Elton.
Have fun and do it again.

811 with the Shout!
Date: 4.9.2013 Bowler: Todd Ognibene Location: Sacramento, California Pro Shop: Todd Adams Pro Shop
Had a stroke last February, had trouble with my game, talked with Dan Perry, Eagles Edge Pro Shop, 3-D Bowl, Island Lake, Illinois, suggested the Shout, bowled a 300 at 63 years of age.
The game is coming back and looking forward to another 300.
The SHOUT is the answer
Date: 1.18.2013 Bowler: Mike Craig Location: Columbus, Ohio Pro Shop: Singerz Shop -Mike Craig
Storm Products staffer Mike Craig was looking for a way to combat what seemed like very dry conditions on a weekly basis. On a hunch, he drilled up a Roto Grip Shout. 3 league outings & 3 750+ series later, Mike is sold on the lower end offerings of Roto and Storm.
"I am real impressed with how the Shout doesn't jerk off the dryer boards of our league condition. I can get in and send it right of target and have it not over react like the high end equipment in my bag. It keeps me safe when the lanes are hooking sharply and as my scores indicate, it hits pretty well also."
Shout ball review
Date: 11.25.2012 Bowler: Ron Case Location: Antioch, California Pro Shop: Gene Azevedo
My Axis is 5 5/8 right, ¼ up, my speed is average and I would consider myself with higher revs but more up the back. So not a cranker but not really straight either.
Drilled the pin 4 ½” and the CG 3 ½” from PAP (pin up).
This ball is pretty mild but still has some kick. On the fresh oil it may not be enough, but once some games have been bowled it helps you stay in your comfort zone if you don’t like moving deep inside. It is still strong off the dry board, but you need to hit the dry boards to see it. After knocking the shine down a bit it did react better in the oil and it still keeps hooking through the pin deck. Great ball for lanes beginning to hook for those who don’t need help hooking it.
3 Week HOT STREAK with the SHOUT!

298 - 234 - 279 = 811 series on October 12,2012.
After drilling the Shout, it took only one week and 9 games to shoot an honor score (298,234,279, 811 series). The ball offers a strong roll off the back end and excellent continuation through the pins. This is already one of my all time favorite reactions of any ball I've had and made me even more excited to become a part of team Roto Grip. I am a junior at Robert Morris University in PA and this is our first year with a Roto Grip Collegiate Sponsorship. I am averaging 254 after 9 league games bowled with the Shout and achieved my second sanctioned 800 series with games 7,8,and 9. Special thanks to Tommy Sposaro from Beaver Valley Bowl for advice on the layout.

Shout out loud cause here i come. the shout for me give me a little more mid lane then my scream being a solid ball.really like to use this ball on little bit more shorter patterns to control the backend reaction great up the boards for house shot pattern.dont be afraid to walk into you bowling center and shout out loud to let your other bowlers know you mean buisness.
Staffer review of the SHOUT - John Brodersen
Date: 9.1.2012 Bowler: John Brodersen Location: Helena, Montana Pro Shop: JB's Pro Shop
Ball specs – 15 lbs 2 oz, 2.89 top weight, 3 1/2-inch pin.
The Shout, which is a polished solid, was drilled using the dual angle method. The layout is a 4 inch pin, 50-degree drill angle and a 70-degree VAL angle. An x-hole was placed in the P3 location. Using Storm’s layout terminology the layout would be 4 by 4 3/8 with a 3 5/8 pin buffer. The cover was left OOB which is 1500 polished.
The pattern bowled on was a 41 foot, 24 micro-liter broken down house condition. I had used a Defiant Edge and a Berserk earlier and was playing around 22 with them. With the HP1 Shout I was able to move my feet 10 right and my target 5 right to get closer to the friction and get to the pocket. The Shout was very clean through the fronts even on the broken down pattern. The Shout made a smooth, predictable move off the friction into the pocket. The hit and carry, especially on light hits was well above my expectations based on my experience with the Roto Grip planet balls. Compared to the Scream the Shout was a little earlier and smoother off the break point. The overall all hook was about the same as the Scream, just a different motion.
The new Roto Grip HP1 lineup of the Shout and Scream will provide additional ball choices and motions for those lighter oil or broken down conditions.
