Hey guys and gals. I felt that practice was a great thing to do..... however, league nights (fresh oil) versus non-league practice (dry lanes, stripped for re-oiling later that night) are definitely DIFFERENT.

OK... I use a ball that hooks pretty strongly on oily lanes. The only times I can practice other than the few minutes of warmups we get on league nights, are those dry lane-type times. You just about dislocate your shoulder and elbow trying to keep that viscious-hooker on the dry lanes! Even my straight ball that I shoot spares with hooks on dry lanes. What practice you get under these circumstances is definitely not conducive to good bowling behavior or reaction on league nights.

I bowled practice games with that spare ball, with fantastic scores. Anyone else have these problems?

By the way, static guard helps find the missing socks, which always seem to wind up inside a shirt or pants leg....... LOL

RonLaf, I know exactly what you are talking about. Personally, I have to change my line when I practice on the dry. It's not totally a waste because I might need to use that line somewhere down the line in a tournament, or even league. I also used my spare ball for strikes on these conditions, but I found that I was burning a track in the ball, so I avoid doing that now.

The other alternative is to just purposely miss getting strikes in order to practice picking up spares.
