Are you ready for the next generation? Roto-Grip's Cell Pearl is sure to be everything you need!Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 5 1/2"Mass Bias Position - 4" from PAPCG Placement - Balance Hole - noneSurface Preparation - Box FinishWhat 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 ofwhat 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 ashard 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 andthe 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.

The Cytoplasmic Xâ„¢ pearl reactive coverstock is a first in the industry with the optimum amount of porosity and enhanced surface friction. Pin to PAP(4 1/2" over 1/2" up) - 6"Mass Bias Position - 5" from PAPCG Placement - 1" Left of grip centerBalance Hole - NoneSurface Preparation - Left at Box Finish (1500 Polished)What I Was Looking For In This Layout: I went ahead and tried Roto Grip's recommended layout for crankers, the 6 x 5 layout. They say that this will work good for those inside lines.What I Ended Up With In This Ball Layout: If you liked the Cell, then you are going to love the Cell Pearl. Not only does this ball look GREAT going down the lane, but it hits like a truck. Even with the pin so far from my PAP, this ball is still one of the more aggressive balls in my arsenal. This gets through the heads pretty easily, then jumps off the dry and makes a left turn. Skid/Snap would be a valid description of what I get out of this ball layout.I started around 15 at the arrows and was getting the ball out to around 5 on our Thursday Night Men's league. It was flying back off the dry, so I ended up moving in towards 18 at the arrows and kept the ball closer to 8-10 at the breakpoint. This allowed the ball motion to transition smoother off the breakpoint and give me the look I needed. After a game and a half, the lanes had broken down and I was forced to move in deeper. My first move in was to stand on 34 on the approach and put the ball over 23 at the arrows 12 at the breakpoint. The look this gave me was terrific. It did provide enough kick at the breakpoint to snap the corners out at the very end. Overall, I think this is going to be a great ball for me on the tighter lane conditions. Compared to my Cell Pro CG, I can get in deeper and it gives me a better angular look. If you bowl in a drier house, or you rev it up, I would recommend this layout. If you bowl in a house with more oil, are more of a tweener or down and in player, I would recommend going with a stronger layout. Another great ball from Roto Grip.
