I tried to search for this and didn't find anything. I know that Rob M says you shouldn't treat the lanes as if they play the same but how many people do the following: (basically adjust on the opposite side for what happened on the shot they just threw).

I go on the right lane throw the ball, everything is perfect and then the ball jumps and overhooks. Then immediately after that happens, how many adjust on the left lane by doing some kind of move such as a 2 and 1 anticipating that the ball will jump on that lane as well. It happened to me Monday where it overhooked and then I moved and then immediately hit the pocket on the next shot and then did the same back on the right lane. (x)

I have never made a move on the next lane over and it didn't work. I asked someone on my team if they did the same, and they said they wouldn't make a move unless it happened twice on the same lane.

On a side note how many splits can you possibly get? I had 3 splits first game 3 7 counts in a row including a 6 7 10 which I actually picked up for the first time ever, a 2 4 10 which I got the 4 10 then who knows what. then 2 splits each on the last 2 games. didn't even miss 1 makeable spare. but 7 splits?

A chat member asked me to reach out to you one more time.
Did you read the following post?

Post number 22.

You have two choices in my opinion:
1) Build a solid game from the ground up
2) Or continue to go in circles looking for the Magic Pill.

Just the facts as I see it.

Not discounting JMerrell's post - but you play the lanes as they are.

If both lanes are playing the same (or very similar) then you might reasonably expect that what is happening on one will happen on the other and you could reasonably expect to make the adjustment.

If you're 2 boards different but same target (so your line is similar but still in the same zone) then maybe.

If you're 5 and 5 different? No. Probably not. Well maybe.


LISTEN to your lanes. If you do everything "perfect" and the ball "all of a sudden" jumps and goes way high - you didn't do everything perfect. The lane was likely telling you something and you didn't notice it. Did the 6 go directly through the 10, or was it bouncing strongly and then more weakly? Was your ball splitting the 8-9 and then not so much but getting the 3 or 6 to take out the 9? Both of these "talk" to you - listen to them.

Lanes don't "all of a sudden" change (no matter what I say while bowling! LOL) - my teammates will tell me that my 6 has been getting weaker or that I've been exiting the deck less centered or something and I didn't notice it.

They can change somewhat quickly - say if you've got a few bowlers burning up a line - but it's not immediate. Pay attention (and I'm speaking TO MYSELF as well! Sigh.)

Sorry about that Jim I thought I posted the comment on the other page but will do it on this and that and send you a msg just incase you don't see it.

I thank you for the time to help me and I will get what you requested to you as soon as possible but we are looking at probably 2-3 weeks. I don't want to try to bowl until then because of this previous shoulder injury. I can feel the tendons in my shoulder doing things like last time.

Things to remember.

If you are serious about success and longevity, TRAIN like an athlete.
Train for your sport, train like your life depends on it, it may!
