Excited for the new omega crux

Storms last release was kind of a bust for me. I thought the phaze 3 was gonna be the best thing since slided bread. I brought it home and holly hell did that thing hook. It was very unpredictable for me. I couldn't keep it right of the headpin no matter what I did. The back end reaction was just in...

Re: Should I get' the phase 3?

I actually ended up switching back to my astro as my go to ball. The phaze 3 is alittle too unpredictable for me. It has a VERY strong backend motion and tends to almost always over hook for me. I cant keep it right of the headpin unless I stand in the left gutter.

Re: real good strong pearl balls

I know I’m late to the party but I put in another vote for the phase 3. I just drilled on today and I was 100 pins higher in my triple then I normally am. Amazing ball.

Re: Should I get' the phase 3?

Just to follow up on my own post, I did end up getting the phaze 3 today. My first time using it out of the box I started with the front 8 and ended with a 251 after leaving a nasty split in the 9th. Second game was a 238 and last was a 201. I LOVE this ball. It is angular as hell and seems to push ...

Re: Should I get' the phase 3?

I normally knock the shine off of Storm Pearls with a 4000 or 3000 pad by hand. I have both the AstroPhysix and the Phaze III. I have both at the Factory finish 1500 Polish (for now). The R3S hybrid cover on the Phaze III picks up earlier, but it also responds to friction quicker. It forced me to m...

Re: Should I get' the phase 3?

I am absolutely horrid with solid cover stocks. I don't know exactly what I do wrong but I can't bowl to save my life with anything other then pearls. Solids usually don't hook for me and even if they do they burn up and hit the pins like they weigh 2 pounds not 15.

Should I get' the phase 3?

As any one who read my previous post knows, I have been struggling alot with leaving ringing ten pins. I was talking to my local pro-shop owner today and he kept telling me over and over that I need to get my ball to start just a second sooner and it would face up better and I would carry. I spent m...

Re: That $%^&* 10 pin

I usually start around 33-35 and try to get it to around the 10-12. I seem to struggle with non-pearl balls. They burn up and hit soft. I was throwing a rip”d solid for a while and it just died in the mid lane every time. I’m not entirely sure on the layout. I could send a pic of the ball if that wo...

Re: That $%^&* 10 pin

That's pretty interesting. So basically a ring ten a a slightly light shot? So I could have moved left and maybe slowed my ball speed down a hair and carried better that way?

Re: That $%^&* 10 pin

I thought that would make the problem worse. Coming in even more angular I thought would be a bad thing.

Re: That $%^&* 10 pin

Basically, yes. I tried to drift right a little but I keep fearing going through the face so I only moved about 2 boards and still didn't carry. I assume the move was to go further right and go straighter, but I don't know if I can tame the ball enough to not over hook.

That $%^&* 10 pin

I'm not sure if I am posting in the right spot, hopefully I am. I need some help figuring out how to carry that god awful 10 pin. I had my league night tonight. (195,194,193) It should have been alot better. Those would have all been 250+ if I carried. My current ball I'm throwing is a Storm Astro-P...

Re: Think I may need something stronger

That actually helps quite a bit. I think I am playing too straight and staying too much in the heavy oil and not really giving the ball a chance to hook. Next time I go I will try moving my target out alittle further right and see what happens. Thanks for the info.

Re: Think I may need something stronger

So would you suggest that I move my target right and try to get out in the dryer part of the lane? My fear with that is over hooking

Re: Think I may need something stronger

Usually I am drawn to Hammer products. I was always a fan of the black widows and just stuck with hammer. I was looking at "the sauce" but honestly the ball you recommended is roughly half the price. I'll def look into it. Thanks.

Re: Think I may need something stronger

I'm not talking about dry lanes. I'm talking about typical house shot. The really weird thing for me is as the lanes break down my ball tends to hook less. My Rip'd Solid works great for about a game and a half and them towards the end of the second game the same shot doesn't make it back. I assume ...

Re: Think I may need something stronger

So if I go to something weaker and symmetrical it will make it back to the pocket better then my Rip'd Solid is?

Think I may need something stronger

First of all, hello everyone. This is my first post. I am a very active bowler. I go atleast twice a week not including my league night. I am a 2 finger (no thumb) one handed righty. I have a pretty high rev rate (upper 4s to low 5s) and throw around 16-16.5 mph. Right now I am having a ton of troub...
