wronghander, thanks for sharing the interview. Good stuff. My favorite part starts 21:20, where Chris was asked, "How do you put together an arsenal for international competition?"

Paraphrasing his response:
"6 balls is a realistic limit. 2 balls for heavy oil (1 control, 1 angular), 2 for medium oil (1 control, 1 angular), 2 for dry lanes (1 control/spare, 1 angular)."

"I want 6 balls that hook at different distances. Basically, a ball that hooks enough or goes straight enough no matter what I see. The worst feeling ever is to be shut out by a lane man."

Funny, I came to a similar conclusion building my current arsenal for regional PBA competition, but substituting more continuation for more angular. It will be interesting to see which 900 Global balls Chris Barnes chooses to fill those slots.
