I've been watching a lot of bowling videos lately, as I'm getting the itch to rejoin a league. I watched a video of Chris Barnes over in Poland in 2014, and he bowled a 300 while winning the world championship over there.

But, what amazed me in the 300 game was that the ball he was using gave him at least 4 strikes that I doubt he'd otherwise have had. They didn't say what ball he was using, but I did some detective work, and I'm about 90% sure he was using the Columbia Eruption Pro Hybrid. I'm telling you, that ball hit like a Mac (Mack) truck! I'm looking for a polished ball of this type to use in medium oiled houses and to fill that niche in my arsenal. To give you a description of my bowling style, is that I'm small, like Norm Duke, and my favorite way to play the lanes is the same as Norm's; that is, to throw from the right corner of the lane, over the first or second arrow, or target one of the boards between those two arrows.

I haven't joined a league yet, but I've been assured that there will be a summer league available at a bowling center 30 miles from me (mostly highway). In the meantime, I'm going to bowl in some other little tournaments, and perhaps some 9 pin no tap tournaments.

Sooooo, I really am looking strongly at getting this ball, and I was just wondering what you guys and gals think of this ball, or if you'd recommend a different ball that would fill this niche in my bag. Thanks a lot for your info before hand.

Five or so years ago, before I quit bowling in a league, because of medical problems, I was part of this community back then, and thought it was very informative. I'm glad that I've decided to start bowling again, as I have always enjoyed bowling so much. And, I am thankful for this forum.

On a side note, I don't know about how it is in your area, but evidentially bowling is dying in my area. Do you know that there used to be 5 bowling centers within 10 miles of my home as I was growing up? Now there are just two! And, they are owned by the same management. But, I think that is a good thing, as I think current management will turn the center they bought into a very nice bowling center again. Previous management had let it run down. And, those two centers are like ghost towns in the summer!

Thank you all!
