You have a winning attitude and realistic approach. Don't sell yourself short though. Keep trying to be your best, you may surprise yourself. I admire your return after the layoff. As Satchel Paige asked, "How old would you be, if you did not know how old you are?" https://en.m.wikipedia.o...

Re: bowlingball revivor

It has been thought that the liquid pulled out of coverstocks is not just lane oil but plasticizers used in making the ball. Eric's remark could be a good topic for BTM (Bowling this month magazine) ???? Thoughts? Old post somewhat related. https://forum.bowlingchat.net/viewtopic.php?t=11352
