Re: Question about balling up to a stronger cover/core ball and playing same line

For people that throw straight at spares. How do you combat the dry for throwing spares. Suppose you usually aim 4th arrow to get the 10 pin. The lanes dry out, I usually move another board left and still hit the 4th arrow. Dries out more another board left and still 4th arrow. Should you move 1 and...

Question about balling up to a stronger cover/core ball and playing same line

I have been out like everyone else for a few months. But even then, I didn't have a good understanding. I will try to revise my question in 1 sentence. How come when I ball up from a Rotogrip Hustle Ink (drilled pin down) to a Conspiracy Solid, I can play the same line as I can with the Hustle Ink b...

Re: Best balls to use a shorter pin layout on

I have the same question also. Right now I only have a Storm Match with a low flare layout. I am a little bias against a low flare asymmetrical ball because that kills what the ball is made to do. I did see Mo's Son use a zing hybrid low flare layout to try to mimic a urethane ball. I think it might...

Short Pin layout ball to mimic urethane

I have watched a few videos on this and don't have an understanding on a few things. A ball that is drilled with a short pin isn't the same as a ball drilled for low flare or is it? (I have a match and a match pearl I told them to drill low flare, so does that mean they drilled it with a short pin?)...

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

I still need to get the tape out of my balls etc. I bought 2 slides to replace my Dexter The one slides. Should I send them back and get a refund? This thing looks like it is getting worse. I am not sure if the bowling alley is going to be around after this.

The problem with that is that bowling alley is on base and they are shut down and who knows what is going to happen. my cousin has like 3-4 bowling balls suppose...

I don't know how to post this. It seems that they are extending the quarantine to the end of april. The leagues were suppose to stop mid or early april. So what happens? In the rule book does it say anything about there has to be a position round between the teams? If you prepaid for the last 2 week...

Re: Completely forgetting what to do when the time is right for it

I was in a sport league last year but didn't know how to throw the ball properly until recently so hopefully things are different. And yes hopefully things return to normal soon but thing aren't looking good. Someone told me I can't even leave the state now but hopefully in the next few weeks things...

Re: Completely forgetting what to do when the time is right for it

I know boomer that is what gets me. When do you know to make like a 8 or 10 board move left and 5 board move left at the arrows? I am used to half a board moves, then I did 1 board moves and I just started doing the 2 and 1. I can do a 20 board jump right and throw up the boards, but that is because...

Re: Bowling withdrawal or an opportunity to improve?

I see it as opportunity to recover. My left knee has been hurting a little on and off and this off time is good for it I think. It is a good time to watch videos and learn things though. hard to keep fit when the gyms are closed.

Re: Completely forgetting what to do when the time is right for it

I didn't try to throw the ball to the gutter because I didn't see it getting any friction there. I can play inside of 5 if needed, but I doubt that was the correct shot. I meant the dot at the feet. For example I see a 10 pin. I put my left foot 7 boards left of the last dot and throw accross 4th ar...

Since there isn't much going on at the current time, I have had time to reflect. I went to the bowling tournament in baton rouge. The 2nd day of the tournament, we bowled at all star lanes. 1st day at circle bowl the lanes acted "normal" At all star lanes, in practice I tried to play the lanes the s...

Re: USBC postpones or suspends national events until May 1

I got to leave for it in the next 30 min. If I didn't have people down there already I would cancel myself. If people on my team don't show up I guess we can cancel. We had booked the 28th but sent it in the day before and all of those were booked.

Re: Overcoming Slow Starts

You didn't provide too much information. Why is the first game low? You can't reach the pocket, are you missing spares? Are you missing your mark in the 1st game but not so much the others? I had a slow start tonight, missing the 7 pin in the first frame of the first game. Still came back to get 226...

Re: Need more help on playing the lane "extreme hooking backends"

Thanks for the comment Tomahawk. This was not for practice. I know where I am most effective at. The problem is that the people oiled the lanes and that took away that part of the lane for me. In the past few weeks, I was able to miss right and anywhere I miss right, it would come back and hit the p...
