Re: Bowling on lanes with no range finders vs lanes with them

Does anyone have a strategy for playing on lanes that don't have range finders? If your referring to the four long lines down the lane, Those are actually called breakpoint markers not rangefinders. The rangefinder is the system of dots and arrows close to the foul line. For example do you tighten ...

Re: Brunswick All American Value

Yep that's rubber ball. Yes it could still be used, As stated it would mainly be a spare ball. As for value whatever someone is willing to pay for it. But if that bag is in good shape, it's probably worth more than the ball. I believe that's a Colonial Round bowling ball bag from about 1970's, They ...

Re: Defensive bowling making the lanes harder against another team

"I believe that if I can mess up the track area up that will mess the entire team of theirs up" Let's see you want to destroy the track, The area of the lane that you constantly play yourself and do most of your scoring in. As Pinbuster said: "Worry about your own game." instead of trying figure ou...

Re: revs

this might not be the recommended method but if you want a general idea of it. Watch the radical throwbot videos. They throw the ball with different speeds. See which one matches the way your ball goes down the lane as close as you can and that gives you a "quick and dirty" way of figuring where yo...

Re: Reading the lanes

Depends if your lane has range finders or arrows or not down lane. The link shows range finders in the article http://www.bowl4fun.com/ron/tip17.htm Something to note: The Rangefinder is the system of Dots & Arrows in the first 15' of the lanes, It was invented by Lowell Jackson back in the 1930's ...

Re: Damage to the bowling ball, bowling alley says never seen anything like it before

Hard to tell from that pic, looks like some thread imprints on the left maybe. Looks like something stuck in the crack on the right.

It can be fixed just drill it out and plug it.

Yes you can use a urethane as a spare ball, many do nothing wrong with that.

Re: What did I just see? How To Increase Your Rev Rate Bowling video

I made a few comments on his video, like how the sarge easter grip only lowers your rev rate initially and as you get use to it it goes back and about how your not supposed to do things like hitting the ball and putting lift on it and grabbing. And target the foul line affects your accuracy. Here wa...

I've used the Silver Real Bowlers Tape, As Megamav said it's is thinner than most white tapes and has a very smooth texture. The only real problem I had with the batch I had was some of them didn't want to come off the backing paper it was on cleanly. Also because it's thin it's can be a little flop...
