We collectively gathered our thoughts and perspectives on what we felt the HP2 line truly stands for and what it should be. We then went to work developing and constructing what is now known as the Hyped Core. Measuring in as the lowest RG core we have ever offered in the HP2 line, the Hyped Core provides more overall motion than the balls offered in the HP1 line, while providing a touch less motion than our HP3 line offerings. Thus, making this one of the best options we have ever constructed for the HP2 line of balls in history. So, if you weren’t already excited, it is now time to GET HYPED!

Hyped Core

From the beginning, the end goal for the Hyped™ Core was to create a core design that would provide us more overall ball motion than the Hustle™ Core found in the HP1 Line, while also creating a viable step down option (less performance) than the motions found from our HP3 Line of balls. In the end, our R&D Team hit it out of the park with creating a core shape that provides medium flare and the ideal ball motion for the HP2 Line of balls moving forward.

VTC™ Coverstock

Versatile Traction Control (VTC) was formulated with durability and consistent performance in mind specifically for the HP1 and HP2 lines. This formula delivers outstanding performance while providing control and versatility without being overly aggressive. So, if stability and control is what you are after, look no further.

Engineered for Light to Medium Oil Conditions.

Hyped Hybrid by RGR
Roto Grip Hyped Hybrid - 60 x 1 1/2 x 55 - 1500 grit sanded on SPL THS and 2000 grit with polished

Ball test conditions: Practiced on 44ft THS on SPL and 46ft THS on older HPL

The HP2 line just got HYPED UP!!!

Knowing Roto Grip King Pin "Schlem" was working a making the HP2 line stronger then ever, the Hyped Hybrid was going to be the first I drill between the Pearl and Hybrid. Knowing in the past on the SPL house I bowl in that pearls are NOT the way to play in or around the track area. The panels are super slick and the pattern is super juicy even with only being 44ft in length. Hitting it with 1500 grit before testing the ball was the best decision I made. It created a better overall look then the Electrify Solid I drilled earlier in the season for there and not a "lengthy" as the UC2 and Zen I was trying to use there. I needed a hybrid with a little stronger pearl percentage and that was easy to change surface as needed. It was very versatile on both patterns and type of lane surfaces. Adapted very well to the surface changes and held up through practice, testing and league. Will keep it at 3000 grit to use for league and practice at Colony Park Lanes being the middle ball, and having the UC3 as the weaker ball, and Idol Helios and RST X*2 for two stronger pieces. The Hyped Hybrid looked really good for two other bowlers I have worked with that don't have a ton of speed, ( 12 to 13 mph off the lane), and more end over end. The ball for them ready all three parts of the lane really well and where they usually have to switch to a stronger ball in length in the 3rd game, they kept the Hyped Hybrid in their hands and felt very comfortable with just making small adjustments as the matches went on. Don't be shy of the colors in this ball - it is a WOLF in Sheep's clothing.

Hyped Hybrid review by Mike Craig
I drilled my HYPED HYBRID at 4.5 x 30. I have a TREND 2 at 4.5 x 25 so I wanted something to see if I could use this as a step down with that still had a good shape to it. The HYPED HYBRID is a great addition to the Roto Grip HP 2 line. Good push and really nice shape down lane. Compared to the TREND 2, the HYPED HYBRID was a 5/2 move back to the right. It was a great compliment as it got thru the early burn the TREND 2 started seeing. I balled up to a RST-X2 to see how where this one compared to both balls. They both played off the RST-X2 pretty well and the HYPED HYBRID was a good ball down choice. The HYPED HYBRID shape was continuous with length and the TREND 2 was more angular and actually started a little earlier than the RST-X2 so it could be a ball up in that spot. The HYPED PEARL is a better ball down choice as it was 4/2 more to the right than the HYPED HYBRID.

The new Hyped Hybrid is a great looking and nice rolling ball. I finally rolled the Hyped Pearl and Hyped Hybrid against each other on various shots and the results are in. I can stand at the same place and roll the same line and cover equal boards. The difference I see is the shape. Keep in mind I am a lower rev player and I used the same layout and finish on both balls. The only variable is the cover stock Roto Grip used. Ball motion can be changed greatly by the bowler, surface adjustments and layouts. The Hyped Hybrid reads the lane a few feet sooner and is a bit less angular at the break point than the Pearl. Both balls hit and carry very well. I can’t say I prefer one over the other. This ball fits above my Hustle Camo and just under my Trend 2. This ball is giving great results for many styles already. The Hypes are an easy choice when a bowler is looking for top notch performance at a great price on medium lane conditions. I am very happy with these balls and hope someone is thinking of a solid option later on.

The Hyped Hybrid is another great looking ball.
The price on this ball makes sit a steal.
The Hyped Hybrid is forgiving and hits hard.
