New arsenal desired (unrelated to the current topic flow).
Need some input/suggestions to improve my arsenal.
I'm 150# 5'6", stroker, 15 mph, low-med rev, 4:30 release,16# balls, but will probably move to 15#. I bowl on a fresh oil (dry outside) THS. My trailing avg is ~185 and improving.
I like comparing the numbers, RG, diff, mass bias diff, etc.
I'd like to build an arsenal more suited to my style.
RotoGrip/Storm matchmakers suggest Hy-road & Reign Fire (very similar numbers), and Cell Pearl & Nomad Pearl (have it).
I would like 3 different layouts that are suited to the balls' design:
1 stacked: strong hooking ball for fresh oil or bowling the center and out of others' track;
1 label leverage: med-strong hook, med-long length, handle lane breakdown;
1 length layout: something to get through the front end cleanly with a strong back end (skid/flip), looking at 920A
[Rambling...I'm intrigued by Legends full coverstock.
I believe in harder balls to transfer energy better, but at the few points of hardness, this may be moot.
Watching Kelly Kulick use a Mission and her opponent in the semi-round (what's his name?) switch from Brunswick to a Mission (it looked like a Mission)caught my attention.]
I'm open to suggestions, Ebonite, Brunswick, Storm/Roto, Visionary, whatever.
178 six week trailing avg (40', dry 0-5)
Nomad Pearl 1200 grit
Dark Star Step Two
Rapid Fire 800 + polish
Ebonite Pin Slasher grey scotch (~800)
Innovative 1/2 hp Spinner
I could be wrong
