What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:

The Nucleus core is one of the greatest in the history of bowling. I'm excited to throw any ball that features this core. What really intrigued me though was the fact that Roto Grip was adding a polished, solid coverstock ball to their HP4 line. Not to mention one that is targetted for medium oil.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:

The Eternal Cell has got to be one of the most unique bowling balls I've thrown in some time. I also believe it's a ball reaction that's needed in today's game. This is evidenced by the fact of how many pros were throwing this ball at the World Series this year.

In my opinion, this is the perfect benchmark reaction. Good length, extremely smooth and easy to read, medium-medium/high overall hook. This ball is amazing on a very wide variety of oil patterns. You will love this ball on long patterns, house patterns, flat patterns and on carrydown.

Two things really stood out to me about this ball, the continuation and the carry. Once this ball gets in to the hook phase, it absolutely does not stop. This creates amazing drive through the pins. This translates to carry. The pins stay low and nothing is left on the deck. Take a look at our video and you'll see that I had to move left on every shot. No matter how much I moved, the ball would finish. It also carried even if it drifted a little high.

I love the fact that I can throw this ball with confidence that the ball will react the way I'm expecting, it will finish and it will carry. Without a doubt one of the best balls I've ever tested.

Roto-Grip has done it again Eternal Cell the core in back. The cover is a polished solid this will give you control so you will know the move in the backend. There are so many ways to drill this will be the ball for your bag and will be there for a long time.

The new Roto Grip Enteral Cell is yet another amazing asymmetrical ball made in the Cell line. The new Solid coverstock really keeps this ball being smooth but not burning up to quick as some asymmetrical tend to do.
Compared to the regular Roto Grip Hyper Cell the Eternal Cell is cleaner in the front part of the lane, with a much stronger motion down lane. The ball allows you to open up your angles and go around a pattern if needed.
The Eternal Cell is going to be a ball you see a lot of in the future! It goes up there at the top of my go to asymmetrical balls.

About the Bowler

Drill Pattern - 55 X 4 15/16 X 40
4000 Abralon Pad Finish

The Eternal Cell fills a very important spot in the Roto Grip lineup – a high performance ball with a strong core, but a milder coverstock. This allows those with medium or slower speeds, as well as those with higher or medium rev rates, to be able to harness the power of the Nucleus core on a wide variety of lane conditions. The Eternal Cell can easily be a benchmark ball – one that is the first ball out of the bag, and one that is hard to take out of your hands. It does possess a strong backend motion, but it is of a smoother variety when compared to a bowling ball such as the Unhinged. Because of this, in combination with the 1500 abralon + factory finish polish surface preparation, the Eternal Cell is at home on medium lane conditions.

The Eternal Cell is not meant to be used on heavy oil in it's shiny box finish, but a run to the spinner and the use of a 2000 or 3000 abralon pad will quickly add much more midlane traction for longer patterns and higher volumes of oil.

This is a whole different type of “CELL”. The Eternal Cell is the latest offering from Roto Grip’s very successful “CELL” line that included the Hyper Cell and Hyper Cell Skid. To be honest, I’ve not ever had much luck with those too balls because for me the cover was too strong for the core and I was forced to migrate deeper, causing my angles to be off. The result was I could never get the ball to go through the pins.

The Eternal Cell solves that problem! It’s a polished solid with a noticeably weaker cover than the Hyper Cell and the Skid. It’s still strong but it gets through the heads better and comes off the spot smoother allowing a straighter angle through the heads and better motion through the pins. For those who struggled with the other Cells, the Eternal Cell is the answer. For those who loved the other Cells, the Eternal Cell can be the later transition ball for when the lane pattern starts to dry out.

ETERNAL CELL 40 x 4 ½ x 55

Coverstock Name 75M™
Coverstock Style Solid
Coverstock Type Reactive
Weight Block Nucleus™ Core
Color Raspberry / Orange / Black
Finish 1500-grit polished

Test condition:

41FT THS with KEGEL FLEX machine with cleaner ratio 4:1 and Ice oil in both tanks

Found the Eternal Cell did very well as the lanes started the transition. On the fresh I bowl on, this ball was a little strong for the back end of the pattern, once I drugged some oil down between 42-45 feet, the ball started to set up better for me and did not what to hook through the nose by playing the same area I do with the LOCK. When the ball hits the pins at 16-18 degree angle, the pins scatter like ants running away from an anteater. The coloring is really nice to watch how the ball is the “skid, hook, and roll” and can make adjustments a lot quicker than other balls I recently drilled. It rolls and reacts like a stronger drilling Rogue Cell I had with the cover stock being polished. Another AWESOME ball in the CELL legacy… This might be the best one since the original CELL for me.

The ETERNAL CELL has the proven Nucleus Core from the popular CELL line, wrapped in a solid reactive 75M coverstock. This ball comes out of the box at 1500-grit polished, with a 6” + flare potential. The cover can be sanded for earlier hook and roll, as opposed to skid/flip.


I have used the ETERNAL CELL on house patterns.

For our 39 ft. house pattern,I used the ETERNAL CELL at the 1500-grit polished, box finish. It got through the heads better than I expected, and finished very strong off the pattern, continuing through the pins. As the pattern transitioned, I was able to migrate in and still get the corners out.

On our 40 ft. house pattern, I, again used the ETERNAL CELL at box finish and it was still strong enough for the shot. I was able to play a couple boards further right on the 40 ft. pattern, than on the 39 ft. pattern and I had no trouble getting out the corners. It holds tremendous energy coming off the pattern and continues through the pins.

The ETERNAL CELL is a great ball for fans of the CELL line. It is very strong off the pattern, yet I was able to play a couple boards further out than I would with the HYPER CELL. I don’t head for the lanes without this ball in my bag.

The Eternal Cell is the most recent Roto Grip release using the tried and proven Nucleus Core. This new version has a polished solid cover that is cleaner through the front than the previous Hyper Cell and from my experience, Hyper Cell Skid. The eternal Cell has an Rg of 2.52, a differential of 0.056, and an intermediate differential of 0.018 in 15lb balls. The brightly colored orange, raspberry, and black, really stands out on the shelf.
I drilled my Eternal Cell with a 3 ¾ x 5 ¼ x 2 ½ layout. I originally tried the Eternal Cell with box finish, and liked it on medium conditions, that had a moderate amount of oil in the middle of the lane. If there was too much build up in the middle, then the Eternal Cell had a tendency to over skid to the spot, and roll up behind the head pin. Once I lightly hit the Eternal Cell with a 3000 abralon pad, the motion blended out perfectly, and is now one of my favorite balls in the bag. The Eternal Cell rolls well from out as well as covering some boards, when getting my hand around the side of the ball. I still prefer the Eternal Cell on slightly more blended patterns, compared to the Critical, which seems to handle the over walls better. Even though the Eternal Cell has a solid cover, I find it easier through the front of the lane, compared to the Hyper Cell Skid. I’ve had good reaction on pattern lengths from 37 to 43 feet in length with the Eternal Cell.
If you never drilled any of the previously released balls with the Nucleus Core, then I would recommend trying an Eternal Cell. The cover is a little cleaner than some of the really strong covers that are released today, and has a wide pattern coverage, especially with some cover tweaks to really dial in the ball for the condition that you bowl on. Stop by your local certified pro shop, and drill an Eternal Cell today. Thanks for taking the time to read my review of the Roto Grip Eternal Cell.

About the Bowler

The Eternal Cell is part of the HP4 line, has the same asymmetrical Nucleus core as the Hyper Cell, and a 75m solid coverstock (slightly weaker cover than the Hyper Cell’s 80h microbite)

I chose one of my favorite asymmetrical drillings for my Critical. 4” x 5” with a 3.5” pin buffer with a large P2 hole. This put my pin just outside of my ring finger and the mass bias just left of the thumb (left-handed).

The Eternal Cell revs quickly and wants to hook early, but not as quickly as the Hyper Cell, or Zero Gravity. I have only had a chance to throw it on the 2015 USBC Open Championship team pattern, but I will do my video review on a house shot so be on the look-out (shameless plug :]).

The Eternal is too strong for that USBCOC team pattern on the fresh, but once the oil pushes down and my IQ Tour isn’t strong enough on the back, the Eternal Cell was phenomenal. Being left-handed and slightly speed dominant, I love to see a core that gets started quickly, so needled to say, the Cell series has that in spades. The cover is strong but out of box, it has some much needed length.

I have not played around the different surfaces on the Eternal yet, but I have seen others use it dull at 1,000 grit and it rolls great. I will definitely be giving that a try on some longer tournament pattern that I have coming up.

The Eternal Cell is great for high-rev players who likes to get in and hook it and aren’t afraid of a ball that has strong down-lane motion, or speed dominant players who need the fast revving high octane shape down lane.

COMMENTS

Likes: Smooth even reaction, great midlane roll and continuation through the pins.
Dislikes: none
The Roto Grip Eternal Cell is the newest Cell release. It contains the Nucleus Core just like the other Cells in the line. Its covered with the 75M Polished Solid cover and is finished with 1500 grit abralon.
I was very excited for the Eternal Cell. I really liked the clean and smooth motion of the Hyper Cell Skid and the polished solid cover is my favorite combination. I drilled mine with 25 x 5 3/8 x 17 with a weight hole on my PAP. I wanted mine to roll a bit sooner and be smoother than my skid and that is exactly what I got. The ball reads the mid lane very well and still hits the pocket real hard.
I recommend this ball for anyone looking for that smooth reaction yet strong reaction off the breakpoint. This ball gives you the best of both worlds. This ball is great for medium to heavy oil and the combination of solid and polished cover gives it a good look on a lot of medium length patterns with heavier volumes.

About the Bowler

The Cell series has been known as one of the greatest series ever in the Roto Grip lineup. And the Eternal Cell continued on the Cell Series legacy. For me, this ball is great with it's 75M Solid Reactive Coverstock read great in the middle part of the lane and with it's 1500 Grit Polished the Eternal Cell smoothed out on the backend and gave great continuation through the pin deck. You can use this ball mostly on medium- medium heavy lane conditions. Go get your Eternal Cell today and see why the Cell Series is one of Roto Grip's most legendary series EVER.

Having been a fan of all of the Cell series, I was looking forward to the Eternal Cell.

I’ve found that low drill angles tend to roll much better for me, so this ball was to be a benchmark ball for mediums and/or THS. Well, that didn’t work quite like I had anticipated. Even though it’s polished out of the box, it’s still quite strong and doesn’t hesitate when it rolls up on friction.

I’ve used it on a couple of THS and it’s strong enough to get through the puddle in the middle and still make the pocket. If it encounters the friction outside it will jump left with the box polish. I believe it will roll well at 2000 or 3000, but I haven’t knocked the shine off of it yet.

I really enjoy rolling this ball and, as strange as it is to say, I really like the way it looks rolling down the lane. I’ve actually had customers inquire about it, not because of hook or shape, but because of the colors.

With it’s box surface, it may be a bit too sharp off the pattern on anything sport-certified, but I haven’t had the opportunity to try it out yet.

Anyone who likes the Cell series will definitely want this ball, it’s a great addition to the Roto line.

I really like the Cell series so I was pretty pumped on the new release of the Eternal Cell.
A solid Asymmetrical that comes shiny. I drilled mine pin down, 5 x 4 x 4.75 . The Cell series was always a very strong rolling bowling ball. Sometimes they would kinda of labor down lane. But with the Eternal I see more length but with strong midlane roll and continuous roll through pins.
Its a lot cleaner than Hyper Cell and Skid. Great compliment though when those balls start to burn up. I use the Eternal a lot when lanes get a little wet/dry and it blends out the pattern. A very successful motion back in the Roto Grip Line.

The Eternal Cell is everything you would expect out a ball carrying on the name in the Cell line of equipment. Its well proven core continues to shred the pins and the awesome covers RotoGrip continues to wrap it in never seems to stop getting better.

If you loved the HyperCell, this ball is a great compliment. When they Hyper Becomes too early and starts bleeding off energy at the pins the Eternal Cell offers me a similar look on the lanes, but a later down lane reaction with a slightly more angular approach to the pocket.

And then add what I think is a amazing color scheme and on the ball and you have one killer piece for your arsenal!

The new Eternal Cell fits perfectly in the HP4 series of balls. With the Menace being the strong arcing solid and the Hyper Cell Skid being the lengthy flippy pearl, the Eternal Cell offers a motion that is sooner than the Skid but more angular than the Menace. This cover (75M Solid) is a superb shell for the strong Nucleus Core that's already proven to be extremely dynamic. Having thrown the original Cell, Cell Pearl, Rogue Cell, Mutant Cell (solid & pearl), Hyper Cell & Hyper Cell Skid, it's incredible that Roto Grip is still engineering new ways to utilize this excellent core shape. For those who remember, the Cell Pearl, this will offer a similar reaction but with more teeth in the oil. The 1500 grit finish is a home run that gives this ball the cleanliness of a pearl without losing the traction of a solid. Having thrown this ball on our house shot, as well as the PBA Chameleon and Scorpion patterns, the Eternal Cell is a viable weapon for medium/long lane conditions. With it's smooth/shiny cover, lower rev players will be able to use it on all but the driest of lanes. Regardless of your style, the Eternal Cell continues the Roto Grip legacy of excellence. #OwnIt

Layout = 75 x 4.5 x 25 - This is a layout I use when I want more read at the break point. By doing this, I get a layout that I can soft hook with more transition in the back end of the lane or take my hand out of and go more direct with.

The first time I used this in league, I knew this would be a perfect addition to my arsenal. The lanes started out tighter in the fronts and the Eternal Cell had enough strength in the cover to get started up in time to make the spot. As the night progressed and the fronts got lighter and less downlane push was starting to occur, the EC really got golden. The polished cover gave me length as I moved left with the shape turning to strong arc. Eventually the fronts went and I just took my hand out of it and started to line drive it thru the fronts more. The EC pushed easy doing this but still had enough motion in the back to shove out the corners.

When I see this much versatility in a ball just from bowling a league set, it tells me this is something special. I would suggest drilling one of these as a great transition ball as in box shape it will give you the length thru the front of the lane with that great Cell shape in the back. And also don't be afraid to use the abralon pads to get you separation in your arsenals. Even just hitting the cover lightly with 4000 can eliminate the over/under that shiny factory finishes sometimes cause.

Roto Grip Eternal Cell Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

I have been a big fan of the Cell core since day one. The Eternal Cell is the newest addition to the HP4 line and has quickly become one of my favorites. It’s a perfect fit underneath the Hyper Cell and Menace as well as stronger than the Hyper Cell Skid. The Eternal Cell is still very strong because of the core, but I think is different in that players will be able to use it on more patterns. Consider it a blend between the traditional Hyper Cell and the Skid.

So far, I’ve drilled two Eternal Cells. The first one is drilled as follows: 4 ½ x 4 x 60 with a very small hole below my axis. I’ve been able to use this one on several different types of patterns, except for the short ones. It makes sense that the Eternal is too strong for short patterns, but on the longer ones, this ball goes everywhere with me.

The second one I drilled was a bit stronger and my goal was to reduce the amount of down lane angle. It’s drilled as follows: 3 x 5 x 100. The mass bias was drilled out by my thumbhole. This certainly created a smoother, slower response time shape, which is what I was looking for. I will be able to use this ball on flatter patterns, tougher patterns, and when I don’t need much angle down lane.

I truly think players can drill this ball multiple was and will be able to create different shapes to fit their style and shape they are looking for.

Another winner by Roto Grip! #OwnIt

About the Bowler

I was able to compare the Eternal Cell against the other Hyper Cells. What I noticed immediately was the length and predictability the Eternal Cell has. The overall ball motion is very similar to the Hyper Cell but more power on the backend. For me the Hyper Cell would roll up a little too quick when the lane would start to dry up. When I moved left the Hyper Cell would not have enough power to get around the corner. This is where the Eternal Cell fits right in and making the corner is no problem. The solid coverstock of the Eternal Cell makes it more predictable than the Hyper Skid’s pearlized coverstock. The Eternal Cell provides generous length but not as much as the Hyper Cell Skid but makes up for it by being stronger in the mid lane. The Eternal Cell is a good fit between the Hyper Cell and The Hyper Cell Skid.

Roto Grip Eternal Cell Review by Roto Grip Staffer Joshua Tajiri
Roto Grip brings back the Nucleus core with the Eternal Cell. The Eternal Cell has a 72M solid coverstock with comes at a 1500-polished finish. The coverstock is weaker to give you a different reaction than the normal high performance Roto Grip balls. The reaction of the Eternal Cell is a perfect step down compliment to the Menace.
I drilled my Eternal Cell with a 65° x 5″ x 55° dual angle layout. This layout for me gives me control of the breakpoint and having a continuous ball motion in the hook phase. It makes the ball very even rolling for me.
This ball works very well on Medium oil lane conditions. It works well if you need a ball to hook in the midlane but still skid through the fronts while hitting like a high performance ball. The Eternal Cell is a very good ball to have when creating an arsenal.
Based on performance, I give this ball an “A-.” Based on shelf appeal, I give this ball an “A+.” This ball looks really good when it rolls down the lane getting those strikes.
Thank you for reading this blog and hope you stay tuned for future blogs,

The newest release in the HP4 line by RotoGrip is the Eternal Cell. The Eternal Cell has the same Nucleus core that is in the other Hyper Cells in the HP4 line. The coverstock for the Eternal Cell is the 75M Solid Reactive that is 1500 polished. The Eternal Cell has decent length and very continuous backend motion. The Layout that I put into Eternal Cell is pin below the ring finger with the mass bias slightly kicked out with no hole. The coordinates for the layout are 75 by 5 by 75 for the dual angle people. My coordinates are 5 5/8 over and ¾ up for my PAP, Ball speed is medium, Rev Rate around 300 and I am right handed.

The patterns that were available to me to throw the Eternal Cell on were a typical house pattern and a medium volume longer length pattern. What I noticed immediately was that the Eternal Cell gets through the first 20 feet with ease compared to Hyper Cell or to the Menace. The second characteristic that stands out is the strong continuous backend motion that is very similar to the Hyper Cell but stronger. On the THS, the Eternal Cell had decent length and would continue through the pins even for me while moving left. The Eternal Cell is not as drastic at the breakpoint like the Hyper Cell Skid so I could keep my feet farther to the right compared to the Hyper Cell Skid. On the Medium volume sport pattern the Eternal Cell was pretty good from the start but got better and better as the lane carried down. As the session continued I was able to continue to move left and was able to keep the dry to the right and the Eternal Cell still motioned through the pins. This was very surprising because at the breakpoint the Eternal Cell was smooth as silk but was exploding through the pins.

What I noticed was the Eternal Skid is a good fit between the Hyper Cell and the Hyper Cell Skid. The Eternal Cell is a combination of all the good parts of the Hyper Cell and Hyper Cell Skid! The length from the Hyper Cell Skid and backend motion of the Hyper Cell with a touch more power! The Eternal Cell will be a mainstay in my bag whether bowling league or tournament play!
