The 360/1000/2000 worked very well on this ball. No polish. It remained strong, but still had good length for this bowler. Pretty darn good ball for his faster, higher-rev no thumb release. Frankly, not much different than the new ones. But that

I know all the pros use them now, at least many of them. A friend has one and I love the size and what it does, so we're getting two. Wish they had different colors. Buddies is the cheapest price I've found at $17.95, so Master is taking advantage

It is funny sometimes. I think it has more to do with worrying about the next shot being bad because you want to keep the good times going so to speak. Sometimes I see a delayed 10 pin on a pocket shot and my first instinct was to move inside inste

Great advice Joe, especially given the conditions beginners will likely be playing in. I use my Crown a lot in practice, a ball that has minuscule hook. It's helped me work on my hand motion and changes. To the extent now that the inside of my thu

176+203+217=596 tonight. Disappointed. First game I blame on not being warmed up enough (two opens in the first 3 frames, blech). However I think my center tweaked the pattern a bit so didn't have as much success as I was hoping for in the last two g

Can't we bowlers get ANY kind of respect from the mainstream media for even bowling a perfect 300 game on TV? Compare that to what professional dart players get over in the U.K., where they are treated as rock stars by both the fans (who are certainl
