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...

Re: real bowlers tape

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...

Re: reactive Short pin layout vs Urethane

Someone in the comment section recommends a 90 x 2 1/4 x 45 layout. I just read the comments for this video, the person your referring too was not "recommending" the 90 x 2 1/4 x 45 layout specifically. He was at most recommending the low flare layout, because it was what he used when he needed too...

Talk to the manager about buying games for the month/year/season up front at a discount.
20, 50, 100? That will drive the price down.
Bowling centers can be negotiable.
Yeah that's like here, we have the Players pass which you can get a month of Unlimited practice for about $25.

Re: Getting Fingers on the inside of the ball

I took video trying to play 4th arrow and I thought by holding my hand in the same postion the entire length of the swing, i would end up in the proper place and I didn't. I was always on the outside of the ball. "I took video trying to play 4th arrow" It would have been more helpful if you had pos...

Well if the same bowlers are there, then wives and girlfriends will show up often you might see them repeatedly.

Re: chamois

I would put zero faith in the rev rate, remember Specto had Norm Duke at 430 revs playing straight up 5. Yeah a lot people wondered about rev rate on specto and how it's calculated and what affected it. I just remembered Kegel posted a video about calibrating Specto a couple of months back. In the ...
