Took a long time to get his first ever 300 back in July 2015 with the Sky Rocket... Since then Paul has had a few more... He just recorded his 5th career 300 using the Roto Grip Sinister. He also managed to record his first career 800 with the Sinister... safe to say he likes that ball...

Dawn Horton of Lubbock Texas shot her 4th career 300.
She has been working very hard the last few years on improving .
This night she was using the R/G Sinister. Dawn loves going up the boards with a lot of speed so the pin is above and to the right of the ring finger, PSA 1" left of VAL w/ wgt hole 4.5 over 1" down rolls and hits like a truck.
Dawn's other balls include IQ Tour Nano and The Hysteria.
"Way to go Dawn as always have fun!

Paul Caskey, bowling in the Pinchoppers 4 man league did not wait too long to get his 2nd career 300. In late July Paul got #1 using the Sky Rocket. This time the Sinister was the ball for career 300 #2. His Sinister is drilled pin over the ring finger.
Paul is old school and prefers going up the boards.
"Proud of you "Pablo" keep em coming the big series # coming soon

Had some oil and the back ends were a little tighter this night so I grabbed the Sinister and the decision was correct. This Sinister is drilled 5 x 4 x 2 3/4 no weight hole this night moved a little left and let the ball do all work and it did.
279-279-266-824 I have the surface lightly touched w/ Storm clean and shine just perfect for my medium plus ball speed.
"What a Great bowling Ball.
Hank Jordan R/G Staff"
Darryl Clements shot another 300 this time using the Sinister. Darryl is the most accurate bowler I have ever bowled with and likes to go down the boards. This night he used the Sinister drilled pin over the ring finger with weight hole 4" over. His bag includes Asylum, IQ Tour and Lights Out.
Darryl was named Texas Usbc Bowler of the Year 2007

In the first year of bowling, Nashville's Clif Mitchell has registered over thirty 200+ games and a high game of 278. His arsenal is a Roto Grip Sinister, Storm Hy-Road and Storm Team Storm spare ball. Starting in July, he will compete in the 2015 – 2016 Bowler’s Advantage 18th Annual Scratch Shootout Tournament Series.
"As a former three sport athlete, I thought I would take up a new game now that my twin sons are in college. Believe it or not, I bowl 12-20 straight games per practice session. I pretty much knew nothing about the game going in and lived on YouTube watching the USBC Bowling Academy videos and an old training series by Norm Duke to figure things out.
I would love to see how far I can take this new hobby. I am looking forward to competing in the 2015 – 2016 Bowler’s Advantage 18th Annual Scratch Shootout Tournament Series starting in July.
The big challenge I see in bowling is staying committed to the mental part of the game before each shot. I am athletic enough to play the game but you quickly learn a great respect the pros when you see how much you have to marriage muscle memory with the right technique for each shot in changing oil patterns.
I turn 50 this year and would love to throw my first 300 game before the end of the year. At 6’ 3” and too many pounds, my goal is to play Wes Malott one day for a tournament championship to show folks how the big boys can play the game."

Chad fired his second 300 in back to back League outings in the Friday Night Gentry / ONB Independent League. Chad has 19 career 300's and is looking for more!
"Definitely a thrill to shoot a 300 on back to back league nights. My Sinister gives me strong back-end reaction and hits so hard.
Thanks again for the ball recommendation Mike Hofmann and thanks to Rodney Underwood for his great pro-shop work.
First Set with Sinister
Date: 1.23.2015 Bowler: Sean Dietz Location: Williamsville, New York Pro Shop: Bowlers Choice/John Szcerbinski
I bought a Sinister and had it drilled with a Nitrous hole to balance the ball out being that I throw with thumb less (12 years with only one hand) The first game was 225, that was followed by 290 and then 289. The Sinister rolls great! One of the most predictable balls I have rolled. Keep up the great work Roto Grip!!!
800 with Sinister

Tonight I decided to go sub on a Friday Night League. It's my first night using the 3 new balls in a league. I started with the Sinister and went the front nine and left a flat seven pin for a 279. The next game I used the Hysteria and shot 266. The Last game I switched to the OutCry and went front seven left a ringing 7 pin which i missed (rushed because I don't miss seven pins) and went sheet for 267. A cool 812 using three different balls. I just moved left each game (I'm a lefty) after switching balls. These balls pretty much roll themselves. Roto Grip has done it again.

"Sinister - 60 x 4 x40 pin thru ring finger - out of the box
Oil patterns: 42ft Kegel Flex with Fire and Ice oil and 43ft PBA regional pattern
Lane surface: HPL installed 10 years ago and rescreened in 2014.
On the house pattern, the ball was a little too strong in the middle of the lane when standing 22 and looking at 6-8... Moved into 29 and looked at 12-14 and the ball held better and was really strong thru the pin deck. I was really thinking that with the strong layout in this ball, it would burned up before it got to the pocket, but it did not one bit. I put the Sinister on the Innovative ball spinner and hit it with 4000ab and polished it and it gave me that additional length i was looking for when playing the lighter oil part of both patterns. On the 43ft pattern with the out of the box finish, it was just too strong to play the "playable" outside part of the pattern, BUT once polished, the Sinister was the complete package, on the fresh and also while I and another left hander beat the pattern up, I just move a little bit after a couple of frames and continued to tuck in a little to stay in the playable area.
First Game Out of the Box Was a 300
Date: 7.29.2014 Bowler: Ron Case Location: Brentwood, California Pro Shop: Lane 37 / Gene Azevedo
Just drilled the three new balls on Saturday. Used the Sinister in a no tap tourn. that night then on Monday night used it for game 2 in league and shot 300 with it with out any practice with it in this center. It was one of those times where the ball just made it seem very easy. Can't wait to see more with this.
"I've been on staff with Roto-Grip since 2002 and it amazes me how we keep coming out with better balls all the time. Thank you to all of the Storm-Roto team."
