Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame I've been fortunate in this recent Wednesday night run to have a great game cover my bad ones, but tonight could have been better, as well, as missing 10 pins, including three in a row to end the first game, probabl

Alright I finally posted another big score on Tuesday night. I was extremely worried from the get go, we bowled on pair 1&2 and the wall of the alley is literally less than a foot from the left gutter on 1. In warmups I COULD NOT shoot at the 6

Well it looks like Hammer answered my wish, to put the Gasmask core in a strong surface urethane ball. I am excited about this release. Now we will have a urethane hook monster! Ultra low RG (2.50), Ultra high diff (.058) and a strong cover. Early

Interesting night last night. I left work about a half hour early to run to the dentist to get started on a crown for a broken molar and to get a temporary crown. THEN race to get to the lanes before the third frame . . . which I did. Very gracious

Part of it was lane conditions changing and not having the equipment to combat it. I just got a ball that will hopefully be that second ball out of the bag. The other issue was the pain in my leg changing my delivery. I have pretty bad rheumatoid ar

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame It was a struggle to put anything together tonight, as the only time I had consecutive strikes was in the 10th frame of the second game (and a situation where they came on the same lane). My run of single-pin spares

Taking a look at your three balls each of them are practically identical in the coverstock surface of 2000 grit, two of them are sold coverstocks and one hybrid, their RG's are right at 2.50 and the differentials are from 0.043 to 0.056. The Haywire

I was on a 30 year layoff, if you recall. My average has been higher as well. Started out finding that the outside worked best but as things progressed I've increased my rev rate and decreased my speed, both on purpose. At the start I, too, was targe

Here it is, I'm not much with bowling tech talk, I have worked on my bowling a lot lately from around a 20 year layoff, my average now is higher than it was 20 or so years ago. I like to throw from the outside, it seems to work better for me, from t

A follow up... What ball do you usually use now? What is your back up less aggressive ball? How do they compare on their reaction for you?

Ok Dennis, By golly I think you've got it. I've changed a number of things: hand position, swing and more leverage. All were suggested by a coach. I'm doing pretty well at keeping my hand behind the ball by starting with my index finger pointed at th

DJP, I have to lessen my hand at release. When I had Knee operations, I rolled for couple leagues, only taking one step. Developed a strong hand and release. Now, I don't control it well. And, this is my first year back without knee pain. So, I'

At least you started with the front 6. Good job. Focus on that and learn from the mental breakdown. Did the lanes change, and you missed it? Were you no longer focused on execution, instead thinking about the possible score? Were you getting nervou

I've paid attention to commentary about some pros like Walter Ray and Norm Duke usually making use of forward roll where they don't typically have to move all that much like Tommy Jones and others. Cutting down on your angle of entry into the pins se

Hoped you'd get better results than that. At our house they've changed from Kegel Ice to Kegel Fire lane conditioner. The result is less carry down type conditions and balls tend to grab the lanes a bit more. I'm able to see transition better and ear

I'm sure it's been on here many, many times; however, I suppose there are many questions to ask to determine how you came to know that the lanes are dry or drier. Also, under what conditions were the lanes when you began bowling that day. Did you ask

Used a ball, 1 step down. And, changed my finger positions. Mixed results. No pocket 7-10's. However, had 4, 3-9-10's and a couple 3-7's. So the ball definitely turned earlier, hitting the head to hard. Even switched to a pearl in game 3. But d
