I think this is the hardest thing for bowlers to learn. Where is the oil? Where can I get friction? What is the back end reaction? Then, determining what line to roll, and with what ball. It takes me a better part of a game. Lesser experienced bowlers will suffer.
You don't even need to be a tournament to see who knows how to do this and who doesn't. I knew coming into league last night that our pair was going to break down fast because of who we were bowling. Early in the third game, my Hy-Road Nano went high on what I thought was a good shot. I could have moved deeper than I already was with the Nano, but I would have been standing against the ball return on the right lane and it wasn't how much it was hooking that worried me, it was when. So I balled down and went back to the line where I started the night with the Nano and shot nearly the same score as my first game. Others on the pair didn't ball down, moved deeper with their same aggressive equipment that wouldn't finish, or just didn't change much at all. Their 3rd game scores suffered.
