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.
