While bowling conference and districts for the high school team. I threw a 568 for 2 including a 300 game, throwing the last 18 for strikes. I set a Iowa High School state record for 2 games.

300 with Defiant
Date: 4.29.2014 Bowler: Andrew Miller Location: Carmel, New York Pro Shop: Leading Edge
806 series with 300 game - 278, 300, 228 my 1st night in league. My very first game with this ball was a 279 with a 743 series at another bowling center 2 nights before.
"I bowled these scores at Summit Lanes, Lees Summit, MO. Mr. Postel did a great job in advising me what ball to buy and providing a good layout on the ball. Bruce drills all my equipment and will continue to do so. I will use this same ball in PBA50 regionals. I love your equipment to help me perform to the maximum."

I bowled a solid 279!! Every shot was deep in the pocket! The messenger missed the 10 pin in the 5th. Previous to this game i had tied my highest (up until the 279) of 278 two times in a 1 week period. Love this ball!!!
Defiant is perfect!

On December 10, 2012, I became the first woman to shoot 300 in the NJ State Travel League. Formerly a Men's Only League, women were permitted to join about 5 years ago. Needless to say, this has been the highlight of my bowling career.
Defiant = Honor scores!

Defiant is awesome! Rolled an 11-strikes-in-a-row score of 290 using Defiant in league last night! Defiant was great, very even and not jumpy. The cover on my Defiant is at 4000 which gives me the control I need to get Defiant to roll further downlane before the big move to the pocket. My Defiant was drilled by Warren Friedly Jr. at Revolutions Mokena in Mokena, IL. Roto Grip, Revolutions and Warren are awesome!
Defiant still scoring!

After shooting 800 with the Defiant this past October, I couldn't imagine life getting any better. That was until yet again I experienced another thrill that bowling had to offer. I shot my 2nd sanctioned 300 game with the Defiant March 18th, 2013. Yet again the ball displayed its strength and range of motion shattering the pocket and driving pins right into the pit. Roto-Grip again I would like to thank you for your engineering expertise and providing bowlers with these bowling weapons. Its no wonder this company is deemed King of Them All!
Bowling well and the Defiant gave me more honor scores!

Roto Grip sponsored our team at the Military Bowling Campionships in Las Vegas back in January 2013. We won the Team Event and finished 2nd in Team All Events in the Senior Retired Division.
My accomplishment: As you get older, you never know if your going to have another opportunity at an honor score. In the Tuesday Night Men's League, I bowled my 4th 800 series and my 12th 300 game using the Defiant.
"I always tell everyone, "When you look good, you bowl good." Having the right equipment also helps."
Defiant has raised my game!

League was 11 weeks into season...had a 200 avg last yr, but my 11 weeks this year were not going well, struggling to be consistent, average down about 35 pins/game. Had a session with our local pro, she observed and recommended 3 different balls, I chose the Defiant. Could IMMEDIATELY tell a difference in quality of shot making. Went from 165 avg to 12 straight weeks averaging 219 with the Defiant. Posted 2 career high series of 722 and help lift our team to first place. Bowling is FUN again!
"Michelle did an exceptional job diagnosing my game and prescribing the Defiant to deliver stellar results. From 165 avg to 3 months averaging 219... Could not be happier with the solution. Defiant has turned around my game."
Defiant still knocks em down!

In my Monday scratch Trio league I rolled games of 247, 299, 257, 239. The first three games gave me another 800 series. Throughout the night the ball open the lanes up and gave me more area and recovery than any other ball used in the center.

300 with Defiant!

So there I was front 8 first game thinking to myself lets just roll the ball. So no 300, but kept the ball rolling. Turning 521 after 2 I knew what i had to do and i kept my head in the game and made my shots count. The defiant kept me confident and what power i had upon pocket entry. The ball simply overpowered the pins and never have i seen a ball just mutilate pins. Thank you roto grip for being on your game and up to par with technology. First 800 series after 6 years with Roto Grip may there be many more!
His sanctioned 897 series – a 297 followed by back-to-back 300s – was the highest score ever recorded at Main Bowl and the highest in Indiana so far this year, according to the United States Bowling Congress. Only 19 sanctioned perfect 900 series have ever been bowled.
