Bad welcoming to new league with pissed off people etc

I don't know how to word the topic. What happened today upsets me a little and I was wondering if it ever happened to someone else. I joined this no tap league because there are several advantages #1fresh oil #2 better then playing by yourself because the lanes can break down and you can deal with t...

Re: reactive Short pin layout vs Urethane

44boyd I appreciate the comment on this on Saturday. I had planned to "play it safe" get a low flare layout ball my BTU and try not to play left too much. I packed up all my balls I didn't use much at all to use. Then I read that comment and was upset and was like "what the hell". You had me go home...

reactive Short pin layout vs Urethane

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5nhjZLF6nU is what I watched Someone in the comment section recommends a 90 x 2 1/4 x 45 layout. I don't know what layout is on the ball thrown in the video. But does anyone use that layout for big hooking backends? I have a low flare match solid but I have no idea h...

Re: That $%^&* 10 pin

here is a comment from a no thumb bowler on that above: Samuel Kraft 7 months ago ~ For the no thumb bowlers~ I don't use a thumb and I bowl one handed, so using the same concept of thumb position I change the position of my pointer finger or pinky and sometimes both if needed to be more aggressive ...

Re: That $%^&* 10 pin

check this video out about getting the 10 pin out. It isn't about it but it talks about it if you watch the whole video and actually shows you instead of just telling you what to do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCyJkNXY-us I don't exactly understand it myself. but if you don't use your thumb I d...

Re: Slight inconsistancys between shots some times in a game

kajmk thanks. I saw the Shockley video a few times. I also saw the Sean rash video a time or two. I am not aware that I am muscling the ball if I am and I continually watch the speeds. I hit 17 once and could tell I got fast with it. boomer: I am trying to cup my wrist on every shot for now. I can u...

Slight inconsistancys between shots some times in a game

Suppose the following is what happend in a game: Shot1 Good Shot Shot2 Missed target Right a little ( maybe got elbow just a little away from side not sure what else would cause that) Shot3 Broke the wrist otherwise good Shot...

Re: How many average games can you bowl before wrist pain

I bowled today. I paid for 1 game. I had to grab my wrist somewhere around the 6th frame. I don't know what happend. Threw more shots and then didn't happen again. Then paid for 2 more games and never had that issue. Wrist is fine as I type right now. I think the problem is not letting the ball fall...

Re: Should I get' the phase 3?

sorry about that boomer. Since this post was over a month old, I thought it was done and he got what he wanted out of it and I didn't want to start a new topic about that ball. I have been waiting for the phase III for months to come out. The phase II was out forever and I waited until this is out a...

Re: Need a good medium oil sport pattern ball

Looks like I can't edit this. I have done some research and looking at the Vortex V2 it gets high reviews on bowlingthismonth it is a good medium/medium heavy ball. It is a little earlier and a little more angular then the GB3. I was looking at the radical zing hybrid but no reviews on that thing yet.

Need a good medium oil sport pattern ball

My cousin is going to get me a ball for me giving him all that stuff. I currently have these balls in 15lbs Whatever I pick I can get. There is a gap between the conspiracy and the rocketship for sure. I haven't used the c300 swerve much at all because it wants to go too long and do nothing on the b...

Re: Should I get' the phase 3?

I didn't read any of this but I thought about getting the Phase 3 since the 2 is such a good sport pattern ball I believe. I looked up the review of this on bowlingthismonth and it is horrid for sport patterns.

Re: How many average games can you bowl before wrist pain

wrist is alot better now, I guess it was fatigue. Thanks for the videos will have to check them out.

I actually dropped a few balls yesterday on the ground. I try not to put any grip with the thumb and dig in with my fingers. I will have to get some video up soon.

How many average games can you bowl before wrist pain

This varies for everyone, but for the people that don't use a wrist device and actually get their wrist under the ball how many games can you get before it starts to hurt? I know that more is not better but I wanted to try to get as much muscle memory as possible and repetitions in. I threw 16lbs fo...

Re: Getting Fingers on the inside of the ball

Thanks for the help. I feel that I have this down now. Scores were pretty bad but wasn't after the score. I know what a good shot feels like now. I was actually able to hit the target pretty decently and even play 15-18 range and actually hit that area and get it out. When I did throw it up the midd...

Re: The right ball for the job.

There is quite a few older bowlers around that age in the league I am in on thursday. Both of them have speed around 9-10 on the monitor and both hook quite a bit. 1 of them have been bowling for who knows how many years and used to be pretty good I heard. The other one doesn't know too much what he...

Re: Getting Fingers on the inside of the ball

Aiming with 4th finger I am a bit lost with this still. When you setup with the ball in the stance, where is the 4th finger pointing? Also does the 4th finger point toward the pins during the entire swing? I still hold the ball with my wrist cupped with my 4th finger pointing at 10 and the middle at...

Re: Getting Fingers on the inside of the ball

I have to agree with you on that 44boyd. The 1st thing is the wrist. I went today and I was completely thrown off until almost the end of the 3rd game. I had the balls I had rolling with the worst ball motion I ever seen, alot didn'[t have any kind of hook and were dead balls. I think that was due t...

Re: Getting Fingers on the inside of the ball

This is driving me nuts on this. Is it possible to keep your fingers pointed to the left of 12 o clock the entire swing and do it correctl or does your fingers at some point have to turn to the right of 12 (like 1 or 2pm etc). I looked at sean rash and it looks like he holds the wrist position and t...

Re: Bowling games price increase

I will try the lot of games package deal and see what they say. There is suppose to be a $10 special during off hours such as daytime but I have to check. The airforce base went up $2 as well.
