Wow, I think all of you make excellent points. Who knows what the answer really is?
For the most part across America I would say that the majority of bowlers, bowl once a week, and one or two local tournaments a year. And as you know, they all like to bowl really good, and they pay the big bucks to do so. They don't want to spend $150 to $200 bucks for a ball and it not work in thier own house! Come on, that's not right.(LOL)
I think it all comes down to what ruins a lot of sports, and it's the all mighty dollar. There is no way a bowling ball, should cost what it does, or promise that it will do this or that, and that's what people believe they are paying for. Once the industry set back and said, how can we really get into some big bucks? BAM! There went the integrity of the game.
Look at baseball, more homeruns than ever, are batting averages higher? No, but they made a ball with a stronger core, because homeruns fill the seats. A perfect batting average in baseball would be 1,000, if you average 300 your a great hitter, that's only 30%. In bowling if you average 180, that's 60%, and by today's standard, your fair.
Records are shattered,just like bowling, people shooting 850's all over the country, 50 pins from perfection!
The only way to get bowling back to what it was, would mean a pay cut for the industry. I agree, you can kill a lot of scores with the lanes, because even though Joe Bowler has his fancy set up for his favorite shot, it goes out the window on a tougher pattern, because he doesn't know how to adjust in anyway, shape or form.
Bowling with have to re-vamp itself with a new generation, teaching them that if you average 175, your a good bowler, because it's tough what your trying to do, as it should be.
We have way to many people that have tasted the fruit's of many, many 700's, and some 800's. And the sad fact is, bowling needs those people's dollars to survive right now. So, we have to keep them happy until they die out, and bring a new generation in, that has a better understanding of skill. We have to re-eduacate, in order to revamp, meanwhile, keeping some happy until they give up the game.
And by the way, you all know more than me on this matter, but this is my opinion.

Big Don
