They resurfaced our lanes about 4 weeks ago and, although they look beautiful, we are really having issues with carrydown and slick heads. When they prep the lanes for league (THS) they behave pretty well through the first half of the game, but then the carrydown takes over the lane and makes it slick as snot, even trying to work outside the 5th board.
My go-to ball is a 2Furious I keep at 2000Ab, it works well through the first game or so, but even it starts to go away by game #3. The Noize... forget it; that's why I made it my spare ball... and I just had it refinished back to 2000Ab with no noticeable improvement.
So, by the 3rd game I'm down to urethane which can be hit or miss.
My question is, what would be a better way (ball surface, etc) to address the awful carrydown? Right now I handle it by slowing down the 2Furious and moving right (from center to 2nd dot)and playing down and in, more or less. That tactic is not carrying the pins and I'm getting frustrated with it. I don't want to go butcher up my ball with a different finish because that could become a tail-chase in and of itself.
I'm a Tweener... middle of the road on everything. 15-16MPH (at the pins) medium revs. What do you guys think?
I'm the other Dennis
