269-185-254-708 So lets see, first game left a 9 pin first frame and a 9 in in the 7th frame. Game 2 I missed a 7 pin, then made a bad adjustment in the 10th frame and left the 2-4-8-10 and opened. Last game I left the 3-6-10 Twice and spared them both. You'd would think I would be happy, but those 2 opens killed me, and I am not at all satisfied. Funny thing is, everybody was complaining and bowling terrible. Lots of 400's and 500's tonight.

Didn't bowl horribly, but bowled below average yet again. 442. It's deeply frustrating to me that I could buy a White Dot in October and shoot in the low 500s w/it right out of the gate while doing what felt comfortable to me from candlepins -- and now that I've basically decided to completely blow that up and start over, I couldn't hit 500 if my life depended on it. Even w/more aggressive equipment.

Meanwhile, a team of 3 college football players we were facing tonight who are as new to this sport as I am all are about as balanced at the line as a drunk tightrope walker, miss more than half their spares and outscore me anyway. It may be because all 3 of them hook at least half the lane, which I'm utterly incapable of doing. I just don't get it.

Hey MikeHL, don't worry about othr bowlers, just bowl your game, in the end you will catch them up and overtake them, so forget about them..

Untrained Pilot, frustrating missing your 10 pin, me as a lefty my 7 pin, which i missed three times in a game, what the ......!!

180 2 opens
214 solid
159 3 single pin opens, I make 99% usually, put it down to me being tired or crap!!
234 nice, solid

av 196.... Happy enough

Wanted to get a quick game in after work. shot a 149. Trying to pick up the 10 pin using my Freeze is still a little difficult for me because of the hooking action, and I currently don't have a spare ball. Overall felt good with the new ball

Good to hear. Practice as much as you can in between league nights. It's a great time to develop pre-shot routines, mechanics & if you have to deal with open bowlers, patience & concentration rotfl

674 - 248 225 201. I tried really hard last night to stay balanced at the foul line 90% of my shots i was able to do it too. The last game i just didn't move far enough to the left is all i switched to the right ball but i needed to move another 5 boards.

167, 171, and 174 for a 512. I got all 3 of my points, cause the guy I was against was giving up 45 pins to me. He had a 217 avg. and shot 499. the lanes were squirelly...I guess...Our sub, another left-hander shot 695. She shoots well on this THS. I found out why. She walks away from the shot, throws straight up 8 and her slide foot's on about 25...at about 17 mph. The swing path is nowhere near her body so the ball skids forever then snaps at about 45 feet. I don't wish I could do that. Any oil and she'd be lost.
