Roto Grip's Hy-Road! The MVP fills a gap in the Roto Grip lineup. We were missing a Hy-Road motion. The MVP is that reaction. I drilled my MVP after watching a couple of trusted Youtuber’s videos. The MVP is clean thru the fronts and strong, strong, strong off friction. I generally don’t prefer this motion, but this ball might change my mind. I bowled a 6 game tournament right after drilling the MVP and averaged 248. The carry was exceptional and I only ran into trouble the last game when the carrydown robbed me of entry angle.
I made the switch to the IDOL Pro and kept striking. Like any big backend ball, you must know when to throw it and when to put it away. The MVP does have some issues in carrydown. In my testing, I ran into some carry struggles when the backends got tighter. I’m going to test the ball with a 500-1000-2000-4000 surface to see if I can help the ball thru the carrydown. I fully expected this ball to be feast or famine. When the conditions are right, this one is gonna be a striking machine. I think everyone should have this motion in their bag. If not, you are robbing yourself of a motion that produces great carry percentages!
