Last week, I had a tournament that I thought would be fun to enter. It was a skins tournament. 5 games on a a short pattern (Stockholm), and 5 games on a long pattern (THS). The first 5 games I used Storm's Lights Out, and won 2 skins worth $190 each. On the long pattern, I won 2 skins worth $190 each and a second place worth $60 with the Totally Defiant. The second game on the long I shot 299. (Left a two pin). I averaged 214 for the night, and got the second highest average there. (I was the only junior to make top 3 averages). Will never bowl with anything but Storm and Roto Grip. <3

Ashley Dunn's Junior League on Friday December 13, 2013 started as quite a grind. Was it the curse of Friday the 13th...
During game 1 she had managed a double in frames 3 & 4 and was clean until a chopped 6-10 in the 9th to grind out 193.
Game 2 was much of the same, but clean through the entire game this time filling the 10th with strikes for a 206.
Game 3 she decided it was time for a change. Knowing an adjustment would be required, but not exactly sure what she gave it her best estimate - result - a 7-9 split that she nearly covered knocking the 9 off the back and around the corner just missing the 7.
Friday the 13th, 7 pins totally defiant of admirable attempts at covering a nasty split...it was looking like the evening might be cursed. Refusing to let the silly superstition get the best of her she made a minor adjustment on the next shot resulting in a solid pocket hit that cleared the deck.
Ten solid strikes later and she was thankful for having made the ball change to the Roto Grip Totally Defiant. She had proven to herself there was no such thing as the curse of Friday the 13th, by adding her 5th sanctioned 11-In-A-Row to her growing list of accomplishments.
"Thanks Roto Grip for producing some great equipment. I have to admit the last Roto Grip ball I had was the original Defiant and it saw very little use. I haven't owned any of your brand since, until this year. Now I have the Totally Defiant, Disturbed, and Berserk. They have all been very good to me in league and tournaments. I would love to add a Hyper Cell soon!?! Keep the good stuff coming. Ashley Dunn"
