Last night in the hardest League in Colorado Springs in my opinion (I'm averaging 218 my lowest average anywhere in the last 10 years) I used my Wild Streak for my first two games and IDOL for the last game for a cool 806 (248, 279, 279) 3rd 800 in the entire league this bowling season. That's two 800s in 6 days. Thanks Chris

300 X 2 with the amazing IDOL!

300 X 2 (Saturday and Sunday in NW Senior Tour at Husted's Lanes in Vancouver, WA) with one "IDOL" of a ball. While an old school bowler and thinker (who typically took credit and put blame on the operator), after the last two days I've become a big believer in having the right ball in your hand (matching up) to provide the right ball reaction to help get lined up and relaxed to execute consistently. For me (and as expected) this IDOL got into an early roll and yet easily glided through the front and mids while saving just the right amount of energy on the backend to provide the angle and hit to carry for 2 perfect games. No way this could have happened without this IDOL. Thanks Roto Grip!
First Sanctioned 300

Flush pocket on all 35 first ball shots I attempted, only left 5 ringing 10 pins and covered them all. My IDOL was my go to for a few months then switched to the HALO... after struggling for a bit I brought my IDOL back out last night and nothing but pocket.
First 300 Game

Last night I went 233,245,279 for a 757 which is a new high series for me. Started out in practice throwing my SoniQ but as soon as league started I grabbed my IDOL. After the first 5 frames of the first game I already had left a 7 pin, 8 pin, 9 pin and a 10 pin so I went down to the pro shop and talked to Jeff Ward of Wards Pro Shop and asked him for a few suggestions and we both thought I should move a little deeper and that was the right adjustment. I was clean all night and only had 2 frames that were under a 9 count and it was operator error and I knew what I had done both times.
877 with the IDOL...

Finally got my HALO drilled and ready to go today, but had to bag it 5 frames in since OOB (Out of Box) was too aggressive for the shot tonight. Pulled out my Idol and shot my 2nd 300 of the month with it on the final game of our summer league.
IDOL is perfect

On June 4th, 2018 in the Titans Summer League at Savage Lanes in Savannah, MO. 13yr old Caden Cook put together games of 290 - 256 - 265 for a 811 series. This is Caden's first career 800 series.
We also want to recognize his father, Bryan Cook, for drilling up the new IDOL for his son. Bryan is the owner/operator of Rough House Bowling Supply located inside the Southside Family Fun Center in St. Joseph, MO.
Very first 300 with the IDOL!!!!!!

Shot my first 300 with the IDOL at the Derby Tournament in Louisville. I always thought I would shoot one, but not in a tournament. This ball held the same line all 12 shots with a monster back end. I was afraid that infamous ringing ten pin would haunt me again, but not this time. Thanks Roto Grip for creating such a Beast of a ball!!!!!
Another 300 (5 in one month)

Mike Craig threw his 13th 300 on 4-11-18 at Thompson's Capri Lanes. This one was special as the league is designated as a Challenge pattern league. Mike's previous high game on challenge/sport was 289 in a PBA Regional a few years back. Mike is planning on participating in the PBA50 National events this month in FL & NC.
"With RG products, I feel that I have a great variety of ball reaction to choose from. I really like the IDOL because it is very similar to the Haywire with it's roll. Own IT!"
IDOL = Back to Back 300's

Knowing I was on the end pair of my Thursday Night League and that the end pairs are normally dryer I had my pro shop lightly polish my IDOL and rolled games of 300, 300, 203 for an 803 series. The first back to back perfect games ever bowled in the center.

Killing it with the new Idol.
