There are some wily senior bowlers in Melbourne I compete against who can do this very well too. They 'float' the ball out to the breakpoint and get it to roll up and still hit, but if I bowled in the same part of the lane the ball would either hook at my toes or be DOA at the pins. It's impressive to watch and hard to fathom, and their advantage is they don't really care who else has bowled where.

And to tie this to the OP, maybe the ultimate advantge is being able to score when others can't, no matter what your style.


So Dean, do you have any ideas just what they are doing to achieve this? What kind of equipment are they throwing in situations like this?

They are using polished balls, slightly speed dominant with side roll and higher tilt, and incredible touch and speed control. They also have a bit of left to right with their launch angles.

The lanes here have traditionally been drier for many years, so they have worked out a way to score on these conditions without having to move left.
