Re: Handicap in bowling?

So I know there is a score handicap where you take your average and divide and multiply etc. But I am wondering if there is any other handicap system in bowling? Like for instance only needing to knock down 8 pins to get a strike? Thanks First 8 or 9 No-Tap play which is common (and easily handled ...

Re: Scoring software

Yeah, I guess I reinvented league secretary. I’d love to know what they’re charging though, because I could do it for a lot less. The pricing can be found through the CDE website, Basic info is BLS-2020 Standard is $139.00 and if your upgrading it's a lot less. BLS-2020 Professional is $199.00 For ...

Re: MY review of the Pyramid Phoenix Ball Revivor

The Pyramid Phoenix Revivor appears to be a pretty good product. I jumped on the NuBall bandwagon when they first came out. It does a fine job and will keep using it until it wears out. I have had to re-lubricate the bushings in the fan and will need to do so on a regular basis to keep it running. ...

Re: MY review of the Pyramid Phoenix Ball Revivor

I noticed that Mo answered a bowler's question on #MoMonday about bowling ball oil extraction at home. Mo doesn't appear to be a big fan of the revivors offered for home use - preferring the pro shop with commercial revivors. IMO, he wasn't a big fan a people trying to bake their balls in their coo...

Might want to get ready for long term storage of your balls.

Since all bowling has effectively come to a stand still for a indefinite time period, You might want to see about getting your equipment ready for long term storage. I would suggest, 1-remove all tape from your thumb holes and clean the hole if needed. Tape left in a hole a long time can get difficu...

Re: Optimal Axis Rotation

If by optimum you are referring the maximum Hook potential you might be on to something. I believe the "Optimal Axis Rotation" is being taken out of context here. The section "Analysis of hook potential" is about how axis tilt and axis rotation and other things affect the hook potential And using t...

I had a slow start tonight, missing the 7 pin in the first frame of the first game. Still came back to get 226.
Oh come on.... you consider that a slow start??? I guess if you have 270 average that's a slow start.

Okay the little topography book they get for the lanes they play on looked pretty neat! I'd love to see one for my lanes here. But I agree with Ciminelli though, your ball will tell you what you need to know. I can see some players getting too obsessed with that info though and not paying attention ...

Re: Bowling Ball Surfaces

Guys, interesting conversation!

I would want to know what surface made it perform so well - and guarantee that I can repeat it....

Re: Bowling Ball Surfaces

I don’t get the obsession with trying to get exact numbers. Have pads with you at the alley and adjust as necessary That's pretty true! Trying to hit exact numbers is basically a waste of time, even if you sitting there with a surface scanner. If the surface grit is off slightly +/- X amount most p...

Re: Bowling Ball Surfaces

Bowl1820, Some additional thoughts: Probably another thing affecting my results on the spinner is that I have a one-speed spinner. A two-speed spinner might do a better job of sanding to the desired grit at the lower speed, and polish at the higher speed. I would love to try a speed control on the ...

Re: Bowling Ball Surfaces

Are you sanding it wet or dry? I’ve seen a lot of information stating that a wet pad does next to nothing. It's not that wet sanding does next to nothing, It just produces a different type of result.
