That's a good idea. When I go to St. Clair bowl, where I'm planning on doing some bowling this summer (and getting a new ball, if I feel I need one), they have one of the best pro shops around here, in my opinion, and I'll see what they say.

And then, fortunately, this fall, I'll probably be going back to the church league I was formerly in. It is about 8 miles away. But they're the ones that bought the bowling center in my hometown (which is about 1.5 miles away). So, I can probably just go up there and talk to the Pro Shop guy here in town, and he'll be able to give me info on both of the local bowling centers.

It said on their website that he manages both pro shops, as well as the bowling centers. I know the guy from years past, and he's a pretty nice guy (and a real good bowler).

Tell me something, Champ, as you seem very knowledgeable about bowling balls. I'm basing this off of bowlingball.com's perfect score (I believe that is what they call it).

Say you have a Roto-Grip or Storm ball (I believe they're the same company now), and this Roto-Grip or Storm ball has a matte finish of 2000 or 4000 and a very high hook rating of 230. And then we are comparing a Roto-Grip or Storm ball that is polished and also has a very high perfect score of about 230 to it. Is that matte finished ball going to hook more than the polished ball, or is the polished ball probably just going to go longer than the matte ball, before hooking?

I'm mainly just wanting to get another ball that gives me a little different look at the pins, because I can get into these ruts, just like the PBA guys, where I'm nailing the pocket, but leaving ringing 10s, or leaving 10s where the 6 pin just lays in the channel.

It can actually ruin a game for me, because I'm not that great at picking up the 10. I'd say conservatively, that I pick it up about 60% of the time. I want to work on that and improve it. But, if I'm bowling league one night, and all of a sudden I start leaving 10 pins, I'd like the option of using another really good ball, besides making a minor move on the approach or my target out on the lane.

Thanks for all your help! I hope I didn't confuse you with my question(s).
