game 3 which I tried to play straighter but in the middle of the lane 14-10.
Sorry, that is NOT the middle of the lane. That's just the track AGAIN but a little dryer than normal.

Re: sharing drilling sheet specs with customers

If a customer asked for his oval drilling cut-list and other drillsheet specs, would you give it to him, ostensibly "for his files"? I feel like this is the intellectual property of the driller that created it . Contrary to what you 'feel', this is not copyright work. Look up what constitutes origi...

Re: Resignation

Sad to see that but does that also mean that you're 'retiring' from coaching analysis here as well? {Hope NOT!} Or will you continue on a limited basis etc.?

Re: Cover strength and core strength

75% Cover, 25% Core. Layout is part of the 25% that's core, as it is nothing more than how the core is positioned within the ball in relation to the bowlers grip. One of the most prevalent problems in modern bowling is that since the cover is easier to understand, it's O.K. to ignore the core. It's...

Re: How to adjust when everyone on lanes are using urethane

I used over/under because that's what the ball was doing, severely over reacting if I missed in a little and severely under reacting if I missed out. I apologize if that's not the correct technical term. You're describing a reverse block. Why not get left of them & use that burn track they created ...

Re: The most important issue facing the bowling industry tod

The worst marketing the PBA does is let people know how little money is in pro bowling. As a parent with an athletic kid, why would you push them into a sport where the elite might barely make 100k? And now we have this 'wonderful' idea being put forth by pros who can't make a living. [youtube]http...

Re: Layout advice needed

Well here's the choice ball he drilled twice. Second time supposed to be 90x2 1/4x45. Which it might be close to what it should be... But I will let you guys judge. Other ball is the DV8 Tactic Control. Which from my eyes looks like the pin is damn near on the PAP. Which makes me wonder why it love...

As to the layout he put on the Turmoil. Looks like what eric said, 70 - 3-3/4" - 35 is what I got duplicating it on my old Rhino. {Yellow lines See pic}. I also put what you were looking for on the same ball ** - 1 -3/4 - 60, the dot of tape is pin. The drill angle on a symm ends up in the thumb, wh...

The center of grip is an arbitrary measurement location with no specific relationship to the initial axis of rotation. HUH? THE initial PAP is taken from CoG.

ProEdge Custom Thumb inserts

The previous topic about IT vs. Switchgrip prompted this question.
Anybody out there presently using this/try this system?
What are your experiences with it? Viable alternative?
