Our obsession with helping players of all ages and styles conquer various lane conditions while abiding to forthcoming governing rules, led to the development and creation of the asymmetrical E.T.™ Core (Equalizer Technology Core) which features built in cavities in order to increase weight displacement after drilling without a balance hole to increase overall ball motion.

ET CORE

E.T.™ Core = Equalizer Technology Core. This space aged creation was developed with built in cavities at the base of the inner block to emulate the use on an extra hole depending on how you drill it since balance holes are no longer legal in sanctioned competition. The premise of the lower RG and high differential naturally translates to more flare potential, but, add in these “equalizer cavities” and you have yourself built in increased dynamics after drilling.



eTrax™ Coverstock

Our purest form of reactive material to date, the Enhanced Traction (eTrax) coverstock sets the standard as the material to which all other materials are compared and tested. Formulated to provide the “true reactive” response on a variety of conditions by easily clearing the front of the lane while aggressively responding to friction down lane, the eTrax material flexes its resilience and durability day in and day out.

771 out of the box...
Got the UFO alert to replace my aging favorite Code Red, brought it to to league and it was striking non stop. Ball was usable all 3 games. I'm a speed dominant, medium revs and I just had a ton of miss room. Deceptively strong and smooth.. great first impression.

UFO Alert = HC Fused
Really enjoying the e-Trax Hybrid cover. No over/under reaction just glides through the fronts, great midline read with power. Drilled mine to replace my 900G Volatility Torque which was too flippy and over/under.
Specs are RG 2.52 Diff .054 MB .016. Best suited for heavy/medium volumes depending on your stats

Used my favorite pin down layout 50x4 1/8x75 which gives me length with a strong response at the breakpoint. Same shape I get from my pin down OG Volatility (S86R Hybrid) just 3-4 boards less. Just a very predictable asymmetrical
Can be my first ball on league night or great transition ball on medium patterns at tournaments.

I would recommend this ball for anyone looking for a medium strong asymmetrical or if the were replacing a Hyper Cell Fused

Roto Grip UFO Alert
Coverstock: e-TRAX Hybrid Reactive
Weight Block: E.T. Core
Finish: 1500-grit polished
Layout: 4.5 x 5 x 2
Testing on a 43ft THS with recent changes to the amount of reverse oil to help calm down the early hook that the center's lane panels have, I found the UFO Alert getting further down the lane then the Dark Code and Roto Grip UC2 I compared it with to see where it will fit in my bag for the upcoming bowling season in that center. I have struggled to score there the past year and half because the pattern hooked so early and strong for me, my ball speed was down to 13.5 mph and my rev rate was still around 475. So I really struggled to combat that and tried drilling a little of everything from Tropical Storms - yes - OLD SCHOOL Tropicals, Idols, IQ's, stronger stuff like Nuclear Cells and similar stronger ASYMS. With the UFO Alert with the coaching assistance of Hank Boomershine, was able to increase ball speed to close to 17 off the lane again and found the UFO and Rubicon were not strong enough down the lane. With the UFO Alert with a stronger layout then what I have been using, the UFO Alert held up from the first shot down the lane to the last shot over 50 minutes later of practice on the same lane. As the pattern broke down I found it better to move LEFT - instead of the natural progression for left handers like me to move right and move my eyes and mark further down the lane to control the back end. I struck more than I deserved with the UFO Alert. Cannot wait to start league in this center with the UFO Alert the first ball on the rack

Review:
The Roto Grip UFO Alert is very clean enough through the front with a nice angular move at the back. The UFO Alert is nothing like the original UFO. The Original was early and had more of an arch shape while this one is almost a skid flip reaction. My worry is most bowlers will overlook this very good ball because of the popularity of the Dark Code which released at the same time. Roto has produced an Asymmetric ball that does not read too early with a nice tame mass bias. This ball is a bit weaker than my Dark Code but stronger than my Burner Pearl. The angle on the back part of the lane helps recovery and provides nice carry. The Alert is another ball that does not need to be drilled strong to provide a strong motion. We are actually using weaker drill patterns more and more unless a bowler will be encountering heavy or flat patterns or is speed dominate.

Summary:
The UFO Alert is clean through the fronts with pop on the back.
The entry angle and hit are very good.
Weaker Layouts seem to work well on this ball.
