good bowling Vic and shorty.

uits been a struggle for me the past 2 weeks averaging about 570.monday started off the same with a whopping 149. but after opening with 2 misses threw the last 10 for a 258 then 245 to finish 652.

thursday had a 636 so it looks like things are coming back around.but friday had a lovely 467 missed 10 of 12 10 pins.whioch prompted a new ball purchase.

welcome to the arsenal Chainsaw Massacre Red Death.

Another decent night of bowling although I continue to miss single pins in this league for some reason. I am at 90% in my other leagues and about 75% in this league. I have practiced them more frequently since the struggles started and I do fine so I know its just a mental thing and I will break out of it I am sure. Anyways onto the bowling:

204-225-248 for a 677, another solid series although I missed my average by 10 pins overall and it ended up dropping by a pin to a 228.3

Good shooting guys, I started out rough with a 168 2 strikes the rest 7's or 10's solid pocket shots just no carry at all.

Then I remembered reading maybe on here, that if you weren't carrying try less arch to the pocket> Made the adjustment stood 12 target 10 with ball sliding out to the 8 board and started lighting them up. 234, 232 for a 624 series.

My trusty Tropical saved my last game starting with the 3rd frame. I am really starting to like that ball like a beat up pickup you can count on starting when you need it.

Today, I was in league where we get points through match play, one on one. I was in the 7th frame with a 165 and up 60 pins on my opponent. I lost. FML.

My average as of last Sunday was a 135!!! I have been in a slump since the end of last winter. Bowled a 246 on Saturday night in practice, but only 165-195-175 this week.

I made a major change to my release last year. I couldn't figure out why it wasn't working until one of my buddy's who always asks questions about bowling inadvertently told me I did none of the things I told him to do. Changed everything, problem solved! Should be back in the high 190/200's within a couple of weeks =) Oh yeah, oil helps, too.

Tonight was 9 count night. 7's, 10's, 8's, 9's, 4's. I got them all. Missed 1- 10 pin and chopped the 6 off a 6-10 for my only makable opens. But, I had 2 pocket 7/10's in the same game, and a few other splits spread around. Sunday, I averaged 8 strikes per game. Tonight, just over 4. I moved left, right, forward, back. I changed speeds, releases and balls. I would strike on one lane then not the other for half a game. I was around the pocket all night, and didn't carry.

Frustrating, just frustrating. I shot 192-189-192, and my 180 opponent shot 713 for his first 700 ever. I lost all H2H games and the team lost 2 of 3. 579 was high on our team. They had 2 700's. We got smoked.

Afterwards, another bowler said, you know, every ball you rolled was rolling out. Does that mean all of my equipment was too strong for the lanes?

OOps my last game should have been 222 not 232, and also forgot to post a guy on the other team rolled a 288 and never got a 600 series, He went 149 288 150 talk about an unhappy camper lol

Yes it does, if the ball is rolling out then you either need to shell down to something less aggressive, change to something polished to add length, or move in more. If the ball was rolling out that would explain your single pin leaves as well. At least that person was nice enough to bring up what he thought was the problem.

sk8, I started pretty well X X 9/ X, and by the next frame, the shot was gone for the night. Could that have been caused by the bowlers we were against, too. All of them rolled up 12 to the pocket. While I was crossing them, standing 25, over 14 out to 8.

I stayed with strong balls when I changed. But, also rolled outside, 8 to 5 with the same results. But, that ball came in high a few times with ugly results.

I guess my weakest ball in my bag was the VG, which never came out. It doesn't handle carry down as well.

Strange, I rolled on the same pair in practice on Sunday morning with fresh oil, and actually had a good set with good carry. But, I was alone and had no competition for a track.
