Interested in your thoughts.

I have posted here that I routinely switch to a stronger ball in late games when I see carrydown affecting me and other bowlers. I have started with medium balls, and when they don't react correctly, that is when I switch to something really stronger and it seems to cross the tracks much better.

I bowl in a league with 100 bowlers. 50-60 are over 200 and a handful are over 220. It is truely a learning experience watching and listening to these people. I have 3 Coaches on my team. If we have 3 crankers, it's a lot. Rarely, does anyone go deep inside, so we all roll over each other's lines.

Well, I have been listening and watching others switching to stronger balls late in the night also.

I bowled next to a solid 215 bowler last night and watched him struggle around 200 for 2 games. Then he pulled out his VG, and shot 258. Another 210 bowler had 2, 180's and switched to his brand new Hot Sauce, and shot 300.

I originally would have thought neither of these balls would be around late in a match. But it is becoming more common.

Rather than move left, they go stronger with length.
