BANDIT, Bowling Ball
BANDIT, Bowling Ball by Roto Grip CAD Render of Ball Core
Anchoring the Nomad™ series, the Rotary™ weight block made its way into the starting lineup for many tour players. Like Wes Malott, many PBA members love its strong, predictable motion across a variety of oil patterns.
In designing the Outlaw and Bandit, our goal was to create a completely new weight block shape which maximizes pin action, accomplished through increased energy transfer(testing showed an increase of 12% when compared with a traditional core design), and works for both rev dominant and speed dominant players alike. The new Caliber™ weight block does just that!
In addition, we created a new coverstock blend called Inception™ which proved itself right from the outset, hence the name. The surface topography showed Ra values up nearly 10% from previous blends. The highly polished Bandit and 2000-grit Outlaw both handle a variety of conditions ranging from a typical house shot to tough tournament action. When you're looking for "long and strong" pick the Bandit. The Outlaw will be there when you need an earlier, more predictable reaction.
Put it all together and you have two flawlessly-designed weapons that are a MUST for any arsenal!
ROTO GRIP – it's all about the ATTITUDE.
