:D :D :D

Here's a post made in another forum:
Path to free equipment:
Bowl in every regional in your area - be rookie of the year. Or make match play alot.
Participate in high level tournaments on real lane conditions. You don't have to win them all but you must bowl well enough to give yourself an opportunity to win.
Have a good friend that just happens to be a ball rep.
House averages mean absolutely nothing, sorry but that's the real world.
For every Amateur or Regional contract given out there are 1000 guys looking, and they all kill house shots. The primary difference between house shots and real shots is accuracy.
Take a trip and get a CATS analysis, that will reveal accuracy or lack of. Believe me the best in the world can repeatedly hit 3 boards down lane - without lane help.
Even the number of ball contracts on tour are way down; some companies have even cut staff members. PERFORMANCE COUNTS, nothing else matters.
Also remember once you become a staffer, you'll have to spam all the bowling forums with ball reviews of the latest balls from the company, copy and pasted from the company marketing materials. and just remember that the newest ball the company has out is the best ball ever made, has better continuation than the last one that had better continuation, and it works perfectly on the condition it was designed for, but it will also work just as well on any other condition and for any style of bowler you happen to be .
