Re: Storm Crux Ball Replacement

Asymmetricals react quicker to friction, personally I’d go symmetrical for a 3rd game ball

Re: Seeking recommendations for a ball.

The ball speed is going to be tough, but a short pin layout sounds like a possible solution

Re: Drill Progression for New Two-Hander

You need to get your stats, plug and drill an old piece to get comfortable with it and get your pitches down before you go new

Re: Ball for a straight shooter

I’d look into the Radical Spy, spare ball with a big core that can be used for spares or strikes since it’ll hit just a bit harder.

Re: Ball for a straight shooter

Welcome, what are you wanting it to do? Like dead straight (spare ball), see more movement up front/midlane, or react on the backend?

Re: Lane conditions and urethane

Urethane is for short sport shots, surface is usually the answer for over under conditions

Re: A ball recommendation

For a new bowler, I’d recommend taking that money and get coaching to make sure fit/release/form/spare system/ability to read the lanes/transition etc.. are sound before you fall into looking for new equipment.

Re: slower ball speed

4 mph is huge, without the numbers it’s hard to say matched or rev dominate

Re: Pin up, Low RG

This is why I like Radical, they give you the numbers after drilling. Wish others would follow.

Re: Laying Out Old Urethane Balls

Drill angle doesn’t matter for symmetrical balls, nothing to do with weight holes

Re: Finding path to Exit Point - When moving

Look up JR Raymond “rule of 7” videos. Basically, find where YOU roll the ball straight down 10 (17, 18, 19 etc..). From there, every board moved in gives you 2 boards down lane (so now 10-8 instead of 10-10 with the adjustment).

Re: Revs

No there isn’t. You can get low RG balls that’ll rev sooner, but nothing is going to make you gain RPMs

Re: Surface adjustment advice

Not saying this is your case, but some PSOs tend to push the latest and greatest on their customers. I follow the Radical bowling theories by Mo even though I throw Roto Grip and Radical mostly, he stated polish is for selling balls as it makes them prettier. So I’d dial in your maintenance routine ...

Re: Surface adjustment advice

So without specific details of what you’re doing, I’d assume your surface is more in the range of 4500+ of lane shine. With the Halo core being more rollier, straight through the fronts with bigger backend is going to be more speed related. It’s a stand left, throw right type ball. If you want it to...

Re: Surface adjustment advice

How often are you resurfacing? Every 3, 6 games? I’d let it lane shine and see if you like that reaction, then freshen up when it goes too long
