Re: real bowlers tape

I've used the Silver Real Bowlers Tape, As Megamav said it's is thinner than most white tapes and has a very smooth texture. The only real problem I had with the batch I had was some of them didn't want to come off the backing paper it was on cleanly. Also because it's thin it's can be a little flop...

Re: reactive Short pin layout vs Urethane

Someone in the comment section recommends a 90 x 2 1/4 x 45 layout. I just read the comments for this video, the person your referring too was not "recommending" the 90 x 2 1/4 x 45 layout specifically. He was at most recommending the low flare layout, because it was what he used when he needed too...

Talk to the manager about buying games for the month/year/season up front at a discount.
20, 50, 100? That will drive the price down.
Bowling centers can be negotiable.
Yeah that's like here, we have the Players pass which you can get a month of Unlimited practice for about $25.

I didn't find out that I could do an hour of bowling for $7.50 for league bowlers until about 3 days ago. I got to use it one time. Amazing all the time you've bow...

Re: Getting Fingers on the inside of the ball

I took video trying to play 4th arrow and I thought by holding my hand in the same postion the entire length of the swing, i would end up in the proper place and I didn't. I was always on the outside of the ball. "I took video trying to play 4th arrow" It would have been more helpful if you had pos...

Well if the same bowlers are there, then wives and girlfriends will show up often you might see them repeatedly.

Re: chamois

how can you de oil one ? thanks steve s You basically treat it like a car chamois, you got to use a very mild soap. Don't use dish soaps, laundry detergents, chemicals , alcohol or you'll remove the natural oils from the leather. A Chamois usually get stiff because they get too dry and the loss of ...

Re: IRTC changed Specto info and sheets this week with different info etc

I would put zero faith in the rev rate, remember Specto had Norm Duke at 430 revs playing straight up 5. Yeah a lot people wondered about rev rate on specto and how it's calculated and what affected it. I just remembered Kegel posted a video about calibrating Specto a couple of months back. In the ...

Mav, I may owe the reading community an apology. Ron's Layout #2 with pin-in-finger may not be Mo's Layout-C. Ron has the Blueprint snapshot of Layout #2 as 80 x 4.5 x 40, and that appears to be the values entered into Blueprint. When I model it and draw it out on a bowling ball, it does not put th...
