My release isn't very good. I have difficulty cupping a 13 or 14 pound ball behind me, and then uncapping on release. That is the way Pedersen and Duke said to release it. So, I don't get many revs on a typical roll down the alley. And, I'm talking mainly about the center where I normally will be bowling league. That is the center where the lanes are covered with plastic, making them essentially hybrid synthetic lanes. I essentially have a tendency to be on top or kind of top and the right side of the ball.
I don't know, you may have misunderstood me or vice versa. Usually, even after freshly oiled for leagues, the cell hooks pretty well. My concern is that the cell will over hook on the wooden lanes that I'll be bowling on this spring and summer. I was hoping a ball like Eruption Pro Hybrid would hook just about right on the nice wooden lanes at st. Clair bowl and/ or Bel-Air Bowl in Belleville, IL. By the way, I'd say the color of the ball CB was using in Poland was Cherry red. It was more cherry red than any shade of orange. I wish I could try something similar to it. If I could find that ball in the racks, or something similar, I might be able to get some idea of how much that type of ball will hook. I may not be able to find anything, so will just have to test using a Roto Grip Cell.
