Re: What factor dominates a THS bowler for ball reaction?

Pattern ( because each house is different)

Surface ( each bowler has favorite surface they like)

Cover (pearl or solid?) what works best on your house shot?

my top 3 factors.

What about Amletto leaving Ebonite for Brunswick? I thought I would never see him throw a Radical ball.

Re: USBC says no more U20

So if you are in high school and bowl in a men's league you forfeit your right to bowl in high school competition. That's the way it's always been. Should apply to college until you're out of college and go pro.

USBC tournament.

Why do the pro's get to bowl this when they have distinct advantage over us common folk? The USBC really needs to rethink letting the pro's bowl in the national tournament. I'm sorry but a guy like Rash is going to be able see the pattern because he's bowled on it at some point when most of the peop...

Re: DISCOVERED A THUMB realization

Mo switched me over from a standard round thumb to a more oval thumb about 3-4 years and since then I'm not grabbing it at the bottom like I used to, now I'm coming out cleaner and don't have to use tape.

Re: USBC New Ball Specs

I don't expect everyone to agree with this post, but, I am bringing up some notable points here... I've pretty much stayed out of the discussion on thes rule changes. to me it's an all out attack on "2-handed" bowlers. high rev players have an advantage but then low revs players also do as well. on...

Another question. Will we be seeing more longer pin balls, more shorter pin balls or will things not change a whole lot?

Re: bowling against plastic ......

Since I rarely see this problem on any of the leagues we currently have if I would run into something like that I'm going to get the most aggressive ball I got, move in off his line and start burning up my own spot.

Re: USBC New Ball Specs

Quick ? for all. So by plugging the weight holes isn't this still going to make all the balls out of balance? You are going to have to replug the whole ball and re-drill it? And what about short pin to CG balls that are already drilled. How will that affect them?

Re: knee bend

Increasing flexibility to your knee joints through flexibility stretches will help alot. Contact a local chiropractor to help you with this.

Re: Help Nord Score On House Shots

The only two of the 8 players on our lanes getting hook, were both 500 rpm modern power players. They could get it as far right as 5 and it would peal back, but they could get it to anywhere between 10 and 5 and it would still peal back, that is, until I messed it up for them with my Purple hammer....

Re: No more motion hole

That is a bummer. Most of my bowling balls have balance holes in them. Even the 30 year old ones I have. I guess I will not be joining any USBC leagues any time soon. Why not? I'm going to drill up a couple new orbs this summer without balance holes and see if it is really me or the lane conditions...
