Re: Our RPM is wrong ?

A good while back, before RPM was introduced into the realm of bowling, revolutions were described in terms of exactly how many times a ball revolved as it was going down the lane. Exactly as described in the video. It seems, that would be a more accurate assessment of rev rate as opposed to modern...

Our RPM is wrong ?

For convenience, most of us calculate RPM with methods that include many variables. This offers a misleading result , which is often fluctuating. Here is why, and how to calculate it correctly !

Re: Mini timelapse of my bowling ball cracking !

You may have a problem with where you keep the ball when it is not being used. For example I know one case of a bowler who kept the ball in the trunk or boot of the car when it was not being used. In the winter the cold weather made the coverstock more fragile. The bowler took the cold ball directl...

Mini timelapse of my bowling ball cracking !

This ball cracked a few years ago. Hammer replaced it. However i also had it repaired. It held for 2-3 years, and now it cracked again, but on a different area. RIP Scandal Pearl.

How many balls have you had that cracked? I'm at 4 so far.

Scotch-Brite tests are back. Spinner performance this time !

Hello people, i hope you are all well ! Last year i did tests with 5 different 3M Scotch Brite pads. Used by hand with moderate and high sanding pressure. There is a playlist on my channel with the results. This time i do the same but with the spinner and only using 1 pressure, a bit above moderate....

Re: Surface adjustment advice

Lane shine (according to mr.Hickland) is around 4700-4800. It is true that without a laser scanner people are way off on what they think their ball has. I witness that when i started using my laser scanner for experiments. You can check some of them on my channel. I just uploaded a relevant one toda...

Re: Does the type of ball/core matter when measuring PAP?

You can measure PAP while the ball is in the air, but you need to do it later on a computer. And the camera has to be decent and video record with good lighting. But i doubt it would vary much because a) most people's loft is small b) the air time in general is very small, c)many people do not have ...

Re: Modifying Two-Handed Technique

I once saw an Asian guy have the smoothest 2 handed approach i have even seen. If i find the video i will show it to you.

Alternatively, if you enough strength in your hands, you could try the Tom Daugherty way. Very unique, but he is 45 and still can do it.

Abralon experiment part 1.

Frequent scenario : your ball is polished or lane shined, and you decide you need surface. So you grab your 1000 Abralon and do your usual sanding by hand ... If you think you got the ball near 1000...you need to check this out.... -----> https://youtu.be/qbPEEnpZwm8 Any thoughts/suggestions welcome...

Re: Surface adjustment advice

I think it will be a trial and error thing. You could also try 1000-3000, or 1000-4000 and see how it goes. Good luck !

Re: How do YOU remove the factory polish on new balls?

One thing I used to do was a “sheen” finish. I’d do it by doing the final polish of the ball, on my spinner with either a used grey scotchbrite or a white one. It would give me a “broken in “ feel with the ball which maybe what you want? Yes. Thank you. I just wanted to hear how people do it, as i ...
