What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
With all the success of the original Cell this one was going to be pretty easy. Use a layout that I know and trust and let the ball do the rest. The Cell Pearl combines the same Nucleus core as the Cell with a pearlized reactive cover. The layout I used on this ball is fairly common for me and I have a Storm Gravity Shift that I love drilled the same way. I figured this would be a perfect way to compliment my Cell and to give us a good idea of
what this ball can do.
What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
Roto-Grip once again has raised the bar with this release. The look the ball had going down the lane alone would sell this ball to anyone who saw it. I guess the best description would be a Cell on steroids. With the pearlized reactive cover this gave me the look that most bowlers want, long and strong. The Cell Pearl got through the front part of the lane smoothly and with little disruption to friction, as it moved through the mid-lane you could see the ball grab the lane and continue straight through the back end. This ball hit as
hard if not harder then the Cell, this was mostly due to the amount of energy that it stored for the back part of the lane.
As the night continued making adjustments to the lane changes was as easy as it is with any reactive ball but the predictability of the Cell Pearl was amazing. The small moves that I had to make were common during league and
the ball gave me enough forgiveness to recover if the move was to drastic.
Overall this is another winner from Roto-Grip. I think you will enjoy throwing this ball as much if not more then your Cell.
