Thanks Joe. I will use the aggressive drilling then. As to weight, with my most current drilling, I have been able to sneak up to 13lbs. I have only one ball right now in 14lbs, my Century 21 rubber ball. I plan on putting the same drilling on i

I haven't been on the same team twice so I don't think we will end up together. Too bad, I would rather stay with this team. I had a lot of fun virtual bowling with you guys. Hope to meet you on the virtual lanes in the near future.

I shot 243, 200, 218 for 661 in our last week of league. I agree with Tim, its been a pleasure bowling with all of you, and we did make a good run at it. This may be my best finish in a virtual league yet. I still have a few weeks left in my leagues

Don't think the swing is lower just a difference in camera angle? 1) You should start with your left foot in front of the right . This will open your hips at the start. As of now your hips are pointing left. 2)You really try to rip the cover off the

Somehow I managed to bowl a 603 series for the second week in a row. This is the full run down of how it happened. I had 8 opens, 5 of those were splits, 2 were washouts and the last was chopping the 3 off of the 3-10. I believe I only threw one sh

Okay slowly falling for the idea of this ball, but I'm still hard debating on weight. I feel like I can do more with a 14lb ball than with a 15/16, but i've played with 15/16 before and it probably wont phase me too much. Some players on this forum s
