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 Pearl by Roto Grip Rick
Roto Grip Hyped Pearl - 65 x 5 x 50 - 1500 grit polished

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

The HP2 line just got HYPED UP!!!

After drilling the Hyped Hybrid with a shorter pin, and wanted to see how the PEARL version would be with a longer P2P with similar angles of what I had on the HP2 balls I had in the past.

The first thing I noticed was the direction change from skid to hook was a little shorter then I thought it would be, the movement in the mid part of the pattern / lane panels were a lot like my Hustle Wine with a 5 inch P2P. Moved in to the roll stage later then the Hustle Wine with a stronger angle into the pins. The SPL panels and 44ft THS caused the ball to labor a little more on the back end of the shots, and did not quite "get there" without getting outside of the track area or going deep into 4th arrow with closing down the angles in getting straighter. That was the BEST read I had with the Hyped Pearl. Still could miss a little in or out and the ball still roll great, held it own even through the breakdown. On HPL with 46ft THS, the ball was money anywhere I played on fresh and first part of the transition. The Hyped Pearl will be in that league bag for that center. Going with the Hyped Pearl, 5 inch P2P RST X*1, the RST*2, and Zen Master for that league.

Hyped Pearl review by Mike Craig
I drilled my HYPED PEARL at 4 x 30. I have a HYPED HYBRID at 4.5 x 30 so I wanted something to see if I could use this as a step down that still had a good shape to it. The HYPED PEARL is a great addition to the Roto Grip HP 2 line. Good push and really nice shape down lane. Compared to the HYPED HYBRID, the HYPED PEARL was a 4/2 move back to the right. It was a great compliment as it got thru the early burn the HYBRID 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 both were good ball down choices. The HYPED HYBRID shape was continuous with length and the HYPED PEARL was more push and a later move down lane.

The new Hyped Pearl is a great looking ball with a ton of performance at an excellent price. It is as good as much more expensive equipment I have rolled. I have really been a fan of the new Hustles and now I am totally blown away by these Hypes. I have already sold a few just by people watching them go down the lane. The Hyped Pearl reads the mid lane correctly and has a nice pop at the breakpoint. The ball hits hard and drives strong through the pins. The Hyped Pearl fits above my Hustle Pearl and under my RST-X2 in hook and motion. I can see this ball being used on multiple conditions and killing a house shot. I have rolled the Hyped Pearl at various centers and have not been disappointed at all. In fact it over performs. This ball has worked for my higher rev bowlers as well as slower speed bowlers and those in between. I am really excited about what I am seeing from the Hyped line. I will put in a wish for a Solid version right now!

The Hyped Pearl is a beautiful ball.
The Ball has a great motion and hit.
The Hyped Pearl is much better than its price point.
