Roto Grip Outlaw Reviewed By: John Brodersen 09/16/2011 22:27 ( stars)

About the Bowler
Bowling Hand    Right Handed
Ball Speed    Medium
Style    Tweener
PAP    5 1/4 Over
Ball specs – 15 lbs 2 oz, 3.14 top weight, and 3 3/8-inch pin.

Using the dual angle method, the Outlaw was punched with a 4 1/2 inch pin distance, 70 degree drill angle and a 30 degree VAL angle. Using Strom’s drilling method the layout is 4 ½ X 5 ½ X 2 pin buffer. An X-hole was not needed. The surface was initially left OOB (2000 abralon) but then polished.

With the new cover stock (Inception) and OOB surface the Outlaw is a surprisingly strong piece in the mid-performance Sword line. If you have some hand or slower ball speed the Outlaw will need some oil up front. (I ended up leaving mine at 2000 but added some polish) The mid lane read was strong and the ball continued to hook down lane. Hit and carry are both very good. The Outlaw started up about three feet sooner than a similarly drilled Bandit with the Bandit being quicker off the friction (more angular) down lane.

The Outlaw is a step up in overall hook compared to the ball it replaces, the Nomad solid. The Outlaw will be a great choice on medium to medium-heavy conditions depending on hand and ball speed.
