Re: Effective Ball Motion Without a Hole! - Full Seminar

I can answer a couple of these: 2. The Sym layouts have an angle sum separate of 15 degrees (between average and advanced), but the ASYM layouts have angle sum separation of 20 degrees for ABC - not DE. Mo has stopped referring to total sums for a while now. He's been using recommendations on surfac...

Re: Katana dragon vs Zing and Squach vs Conspiracy

Agree with Boyd, need your specs to see if you're on one of the ends of the spectrum. Also do you bowl on sport or mainly THS? None of those balls you listed are medium to light oil even if you were listing the Squatch pearl. For medium to light oil I would recommend one of the following: Intel soli...

Re: layout reactive ball roll like urethane or low flare lay

KYBOB, with that much tilt I don't know if you need a low flare layout/urethane. I would recommend you try a Counter Attack Solid at xx - 4 1/2 - 25.

Re: Bowling layout stuff on Bowling chat Univeristy

The last part mentions using lower ratios for easier THS/Wet-dry conditions. If that's a "Both" type deal. I disagree in regards to the THS part. As yes that makes plenty of sense for a lot of bowlers who stay far to one side, and swing it to the other side. However for someone who's playing outsid...

Re: Hitting finger

You could try this:
* To Increase Axis Rotation and Tilt for very high track players - Add 3/8 forward to middle finger and shorten span 1/16. Add 3/8 reverse to ring finger and lengthen span 1/16.

Re: Hitting finger

One handed or two handed? If one and they have been wiki-fit then there are some pitch changes to be made. I'm not sure if those changes will work the same for two handed though

Re: help moving left

now the question is what should be attempted to be fixed first? Footwork (not jumping 3-5 boards over right with last step), Dropping shoulder down or keeping wrist straight and not bent? If I had to choose I would go with the wrist, then shoulder then footwork My opinion would be Shoulder, Footwor...

Re: help moving left

#1 if your on a lane and you start out with a medium oil ball and the ball is pretty strong from the start, there is no reason on earth to ever upgrade to a much stronger ball because the oil volume is already low to start with. It will burn out way too fast. Not necessarily true, you were playing ...

Re: Help Nord Score On House Shots

A couple notes: I think you could have used a little more surface on the Rack Attack or even knocked the polish off the Jackpot. Polish is not your friend when you encounter over/under. Instead of getting a new thumb installed, order some RealBowlersTape blue tape . Which is their equivalent to blac...

Re: Help Nord Score On House Shots

Thank you very much! I bowl at Surf tonight. Surf is unique in that they give us 15 min of warm up! So I may have time to do more precise experiments. Is there a more specific test sequence you would like me to try since I have much more time? The more specifics would occur after your initial shot ...

Re: Help Nord Score On House Shots

Wow, that much miss room? I have never had that much miss room in my whole urethane bowling career. Lol. If I could have that, it would be, "shooting fish in a barrel." Ok, help me out here, let's say I try a shot up 5 and it holds to pocket. Then I make the 2 and 1 move left and it still holds poc...

Ok, I rephrased the above to make it more clear to me. Please let me know if this correct? Yes, that's correct and you may need to make slight adjustments to it as you progress. That's just an outline of what I think may work for you. The main thing is to have a plan to try to find where you can ge...

Re: Help Nord Score On House Shots

I need to be a better explorer. There are boards between second and first arrow to try. The issue is, we only get 5 min of warm up in doubles league, so you gotta figure it out fast and get scoring or you are left behind! Nord, you need to have a plan when you go into practice. Especially when you ...

To add to it, drilling the thumb hole deeper will increase it more. This can't be done with ITs though.

Re: USBC adjusts timeline for new bowling ball specification

Since asymms are still legal, I will moving some of my balance hole customers to those balls. I don't see a whole lot of difference in these new rules, except that all bowling balls will become technically "drillable", regardless of top weight and pin distance. All balls are still legal, the bigges...

Re: code red layout with no weight hole

I have you as slightly speed dominant

Benchmark: 50 x 4 x 40
Long and Strong: 70 x 4 x 40

You shouldn't need a weight hole anyways as starting Aug 1 you can have 3 oz of weight in any direction as long as no weight hole is present.
