Description  more details

GUTS: Featuring the same proven, late-rolling Neutron™ core utilized in both the Rising Star™ and Shooting Star™, the Shatter is a model of consistency, producing good length and strong motion down-lane.


GRIT: The 51ML™ pearl reactive coverstock was created to go toe-to-toe with medium to lighter oil conditions. This reliable shell allows the ball to easily clear the front part of the lane and provide you with more stored energy down-lane.


GRIME: The Shatter produces more length and backend on medium to lighter oil conditions than the Rising Star and Shooting star, creating the perfect combination when paired with either of its predecessors.

Roto Grip Shatter excellent compliment to the Shooting Star
After a lot of success with the Shooting Start, I could not wait to try the Shatter with its pearl finish.  I loved the Shatter on a medium or dry shot. This ball should be ideal for a house shot.  In a typical league shot I could play outside the second arrow most of the night.  As the conditions broke down, I could easily move in 3-5 boards and stay in the pocket.  With the pearl finish, this ball has a sharp backend and makes a quick continuous move to the pocket.

My Shatter was drilled with the pin below the fingers and he CG kicked out close to the PAP.  I kept the box finish.  After a few games to scuff up the box finish a little, this ball began showing its real potential. This ball cleared the heads great.  In the mid-lane the ball revved up nicely and made a sharp decisive move to the pocket.

The Shatter has a very predictable reaction.  This is great for the league player. As the lanes transition, this is an ideal ball to go to. I made slight adjustments with ball speed and angle and was able keep the ball in play and use this ball all night long.

This ball surprised me and played a lot stronger than you would expect based on the specs. I was getting 4-5 inches of flair and bouncing the ball off the dry all night.

Shatter Review
Rotogrip Shatter is a fantastic benchmark ball.  The core has been proven in the Rising Star and the Shooting Star.  This ball easily glides through the front part of the lane, rolls up in the midlane and has a nice strong arc on the back once it encounters friction.  I have used this ball on Cheetah Viper and Scorpion with much success and is one of the very first balls out of my back for a regular house pattern.  The hitting power and versatility this ball delivers is great.  Let me say that again GREAT!!!!!!   Not to mention it is an eye catcher.

RG Shatter
The Roto Grip Shatter is the HP-2 Line.  The Shatter is a high RG and medium differential ball with a Pearl Coverstock.  This ball has a skid/ flip reaction.
When the Shatter sees friction , it is going to read it with a hard angular motion.
Very clean up front and stores a lot of energy for the backend.  I drilled mine 
with a 4.75 inch pin above middle finger, stacked CG.  The Shatter has a lot bounce room to the right, and the carry is exceptional.  Best used on medium to dry conditions.  I have had success using the Shatter when the heads start to go and the oil carries down to the back.  The Shatter cuts right through the carrydown.
Very popular ball for all styles of bowlers.

Shatter review
This ball is very clean through the heads. Great when the lanes break down, you can expect this ball to kick off the corner. Works well on moderate oil conditions. Shatter is angular off the corner but is still controllable. Don't expect too much over/under reactions. Always consistent.

Awesome ball for the Price!!
Layout is stacked above the ring finger no weight hole.

I am a left handed tweener with a 325 rev rate. 

The shatter is a great value ball from Roto Grip. The performance is fantastic, and for the price it cannot be beaten. For league this is the first ball out of my bag. It clears the fronts and has a great backend. The pin carry is also amazing, I am glad that I drilled this up in time for my winter leagues to start. 

I have tried this ball at multiple surfaces, and it has shown me that it is very versatile. This ball shines up well to get through the heads and save energy for maximum backend reaction. Even at 1000 grit, it still cleared the heads and continued on the backend. 

If you are looking for high performance at a great price point, than look no further.
