Re: Best ball specs to request when ordering a ball?

3 oz top or under, you can drill it with the cg on the side and still be legal. The new USBC rule changes made it much easier for a pro shop operator to take any ball and drill it the way you want it to react.

My recommendation is anything over 1+ pin to cg and anything under 4 oz top.

Re: Is this ball drilled upside down or wrong?

I think you might be confused on what your PSO did, if so, then he did nothing wrong. There are not enough pictures to show otherwise. for 2 handed bowlers, especially ones that do not put their thumb in the ball, there are cases where the pin is "WAY" above the fingers, because now the fingers are ...

Re: fingers holes on pap

it just means the RG that her pap lands on, is the same RG contour that her finger hole lands on.

Re: Question about axis rotation and tilt and other stats

Everyone has their own release characteristics. What is important is to know what your numbers are and picking a bowling ball and drilling that suits that style.

Using the overlay tool

Axis tilt - 15
Axis rotation - 75

Re: Axis Migration

That layout will allow you to use a big asymmetrical ball straighter through the fronts and have a big hit on the backend. Surface is always used to slow the ball down if that is the worry. Why will this ball have big hit? Does this raise the CoR in the ball? Has this been proven that this ball wil...

Re: USBC says no more U20

I'm not sure I see the controversy in this. What other sport allows 18+ to compete as kids? (honest question - not being sarcastic, I don't know so I'm asking) I know many sports allow kids to compete as adults (shooting sports, golf and tennis come to mind) and quite a few sports almost penalize a...

Not for the length that the ball has to travel. If the lane was infinite, then it would eventually migrate to the low RG

Re: Stirring CS Hybrid (quick plug) with a bevel sander...

I do a lot of plug work and I can tell you that you NEVER want air bubbles in your plug. It weakens the integrity of the plug and increases your chances of cracking. If I am doing plug work for a customer I use regular plug, not quick plug. I find it holds up long term better and comes out better f...

In my opinion, I think it would be best for your game to find a PSO that understands what affects ball motion. What your PSO is saying, could not be more wrong.

Good luck

No advice was given, I asked a question. Saying something vs explaining how to get there could help solve the issue. Like leading with the inside of the elbow helped me to stay behind the ball more.

Re: The core hitting the pocket...

I think he is talking about a ball rolling on the high rg axis vs the low rg axis. The ball doesn't roll on the low RG axis or the high RG axis. The ball rolls on the rg of the pap. Since the lane is 60 feet it will never get to the low RG. Now if the lane was infinite, it would eventually migrate ...
