What I Was Looking For In This Layout: I wanted to a ball reaction similar to my Virtual Gravity, so I was looking for another ball to hook… just not as much as my Virtual. With the Rogue Cell’s Cytoplasmic XL Hybrid coverstock, I decided to put one of my favorite layouts on it to try and achieve the reaction I wanted.
What I Ended Up With In This Ball Layout: If you’ve thrown a Cell, whether it’s a solid or pearl, you are going to want this addition in your bag. If you haven’t thrown a Cell… What are you doing?! This is a great addition to the line offering a different reaction that compliments the Cell and Cell Pearl. With the layout I put on my Rogue Cell, it now allows me to play a similar line to my Virtual Gravity, only it clears the heads a little easier with the Hybrid coverstock.
The Hybrid Reactive coverstock allows me to be versatile and play different areas of the lane when needed. If I’m playing on a medium condition or burnt lanes, I can stand left and throw right with little worry of having the ball recover back to the pocket due to the energy saved down the lane. When the lanes are fresh and a little tighter, I can square up and watch this ball make a left turn off the fresh backends.
My recommendation is that if you have not tried any ball in the Cell line, this would be a good time to start. If you do have a Cell, the Rogue Cell is the perfect compliment. The Hybrid reactive coverstock allows bowlers of all styles to play their favorite part of the lane. If you’re a cranker, you can tune the surface and swing the whole lane. If you’re a tweener, polish the surface and head outside. No matter what your favorite line to play is, the Rogue Cell’s combination of core and coverstock allow any bowler to easily fine tune the reaction for the perfect reaction desired.
