I use a Lane Master, Xtreme Damage pearl, highly polished. And, a Hybrid Lane Master with a Vision cover, also polished. The Pearl carries very long and snaps. The Hybrid goes long and arcs, actually hits stronger. Entry angles are different, wit

A whole lot more. It's sad that the sponsors have abandoned this sport. Bowlers can't make a living at this rate. Being Ball reps is their only salvation. When I bowled regionals, I was glad to break even on my expenses. I did clear a few grand

It does not seem to use a lot of processing power - it just needs a decent camera (and that really just means decent). Make sure to get all four corners of the lane in the frame. I haven't messed with the amount of zoom needed - I will try that.

Just thinking, your Code Red ball is a hybrid. I have the Code Black and agree with you it can be a bit too strong. I had to take it down from being a polished surface to get it to pick up earlier on the lane. It would go too long and then snap prac

A major bowling title only pays $20K to the winner. Gee, how much do golfers and tennis players get?

I only bought a Hyroad back in June so I am kind of still experimenting. I used the recommended ReactaShine to clean and polish but I did not like the resulting effect. The ball was pushing too far down the lane not getting into a roll and lane motio

We bowled last night on some very dry conditions. A new teammate said I needed to buy a hybrid ball. He said they help or work better in the wet/dry conditions. What are the advantages of the hybrid ball and which one does the forum recommend?

so I bought the program. It works fairly well. Takes a little getting used to, and I'm going to work on finding an optimal camera angle, but for the two shots I tracked last night, it did what it was supposed to. I tracked one ball for my M-in-Law a

Ok - a couple of thoughts: First - Nord - I don't think you're really a good example of this ONLY because your style is such an outlier. Your style is so very full-roller and you have to find very very specific balls and drillings to work for you.

Bowling is all about making adjustment to the conditions. A person's age and abilities are part of those conditions. One of the hardest adjustments all bowlers will be faced with, is their expectation of what they want from the game.

Your thoughts here make sense. We had an older guy on our team a couple years ago (older than me anyway) and you could see his ball go through the transitions as his ball speed continued to decrease over the years. The hook phase began to be way too

It's not the machine. Someone tweaked it. Bet you 10 to 1. BTW way. There has been no water in the center since Friday. Since, it is on a well, I assume the well pump went out. The Center can't get anyone to repair it unless Corporate approves
