Following the footsteps of the versions before it, the HYPED SOLID is here to compliment the HP2 Line of balls. Its VTC™ (Versatile Traction Control) Solid coverstock will provide earlier traction on the lane than previous versions making it ideal for just a little more oil, or, making it the perfect ball when the friction down lane seems unmanageable and you need more overall control. This ball definitely takes VERSATILITY to the MAX! So if you weren’t already excited, now is the time you should 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 Solid review
I drilled my Hyped Solid up with a pin under layout of 4.5 x 4 x 5. I have only gotten to throw it in practice as this was a late add to the 25 other bowling balls I own. I left it box and compared it to the other two HYPED balls and an IQ Tour. Compared to the IQ Tour, the Hyped Solid is a little more down lane motion but definitely not as early reading and smooth. It was a lot earlier than both Hyped Pearl and Hybrids. It did give me the impression that is could be a good ball shined up to control early friction but when you need something that is too much backend.

Hyped Solid by RGR
Roto Grip Hyped Solid: VTC solid cover stock with the proven Hyped core.
The layout is 60 x 5 ½ x 50 and the surface was adjusted to 4000ab.
Currently using it in on a 46ft THS with older HPL lane panels that has a BIG cliff on the back of the pattern and not really blended well front to back and side to side. Super dry outside of 12 and super heavy conditioner between 16 to 16 across the boards.
What I found was a little mundane performance for me, the overall reaction was longer and smoother than even urethane, which on this pattern is a good thing when its fresh, but once the heads start going away, the Hyped Solid loses a ton of backend motion because of the carry down and it cannot roll through it. I also practiced on SPL lane surface with a longer, but well blended pattern and it looked awesome in the first 3 to 4 games, then it lost its “look” after that.
An awesome piece to start your night out, but in most cases I actually “balled down” to the Hustle USA to have a better reaction in the backend. This ball is super smooth and for bowlers that like to play “up the boards” this ball will be great for them.
Thanks to team at Roto Grip and Mike Sinek for all the help and guidance.

The new Hyped Solid is a ball I have been hoping would come out for a while now. I really like the Hyped Pearl and Hyped Hybrid so I felt like this would be a good progression in the line of Hyped Balls. I would call this ball a work horse with just enough of everything including control. The Hyped Solid has bailed me out at times when I just was not getting a good look on the lanes. I can get to the pocket with good carry with this ball when nothing else seems to shape well on a poorly transitioned pattern. The Hyped Solid is a bit cleaner and angular than my Hustle USA and for me but pretty close in total hook. The Hyped Solid is definitely weaker than my RST-X3 but I can ball down from the X3 to this ball easily. The Hyped Solid isn’t flashy but will get the job done at a good price. The Hyped Solid is forgiving and is a ball I have learned to trust. This ball has been selling very well at our shop.

The Hyped Solid is a work horse.
The price on this ball makes it a great value.
The Hyped Solid rolls very good on tough conditions.
