Roto Grip Dark Star Reviewed By: senor roto grip 04/03/2010 11:04 ( stars)

PAP    4 5/8 x 11/16
Combining the Ultimate Vision pearl coverstock (1500 polished) with a new medium core (2.58) and medium differential (.40), Roto Grip introduces the Dark Star to its mid priced line. With a slightly stronger Rg than the Planet series, the Dark Star is a ball for medium to drier patterns. For PBA patterns, with proper layout, a stroker/tweener will find the Dark Star to be a good go to ball on the 37' Viper and 35' Cheetah as the pattern breaks down.

I drilled the Dark Star with a 55 degree pin/pap, pin 4 1/2' from PAP, below my ring finger, with the cg out and a 7/8" weight hole drilled on a straight line 4" from my grip center to create some hook/stop on the back end. This is the same layout I used on a Riot to give me a go to ball when the Riot started to burn off or hook to early as the pattern dried out. For bowler's in the 140-160 average range who want to go to a reactive that is controllable, the Dark Star would be a good choice.
