To me, on a THS, you can get most anything to work. The more revs you can create, the less you need to depend on the high end equipment to provide backend movement. On a THS, the backend is mostly provided for you, you just need to find the breakpoint in the dry part of the lane. The ball will take off. On a THS, I feel like Pete Weber
, watching my ball make a sudden left turn at the breakpoint. The high end equipment works best when you can hit your target line, because they are less forgiving. The extra acceleration at the breakpoint looks impressive when your on target. When your off, it can leave some pretty designs. I feel less of a need to use the high end equipment on a THS.
Over here, you see an array of bowling balls. Some people feel the need to spend their money on the most expensive bowling balls on the market. No matter how much their average or skill level is. You see a lot of Storms and Hammers. From high end to mid level. The better bowlers will use whatever is most comfortable to them. Including some ancient bowling balls.
