i dont really see the ball technology being the problem. I think its some of the older bowlers that are arguing that the balls must go but they are here and they are not leaving. what a ball is designed to do and what it can do are really up to the person using it and the lane conditions. I've been bowling for 3 years and have developed a long way in that time. I went from my straight ball days to back-up balls cause i wanted to see a hook to being taught by a bowling coach, at the college i work for, on how to truely through a real hook. From there it was through practice and redifination of the things he taught me to get where i am today. My buddy and I are on the same team and throw 2 totally different shots and both have about the same average. the difference comes down to the style... Mike can not figure out to throw a powerful hook; I can. I can take the same ball he used that was mostly straight at the pocket and curved a little, and make it snap from the gutter into the pocket (or if the lanes are dry... scream past the 7 pin)

Its the oil conditions that make and break a game. I bowled in a sanctioned league where the oil conditions are not consistant. people were actually quiting the league with inconsistancy being the factor. you would go from soupy oil to burned out cant even keep a plasticball straight conditions.

I also think that maybe reducing the size of the backnd will help because where i work we have no stripping machine. we can only strip the lanes once a month because we have to manually lay the stripper down and then vaccuum it up. we are such a small alley that we do not have the funds to get new equipment. so this means that normally there is no back end. this makes it harder for "hookers" because it reduces the friction on the lane.
