Shot 625 subbing tonight. It was a [censored] 625. I was 4 of 12 for spares. I don't know what my problem was. I started with profit. Had 2 splits then struck then another split. Made change to sting 4 strikes and 9 spare then 7-10 split in 10th. Next game strike open 5 row spare then open in ninth xx9 10th. 3rd game spare. I tried to use profit and it wasnt working. two back to back splits then switched back to sting. 7 in a row 9 spare. I threw the ball well I just was missing some easy spares. Definitely have some work to do for league tomorrow

We bowled the blind team which actually sucked.
Lane 5 was golden as I didn't miss the pocket all night.
Lane 6 was another story, completely different line(if there was one) if you missed by one board right you werent hitting the head pin and miss left and you were going brooklyn. It was terrible how one lane can be that drastically different in a league. My guess is it wouldn't have been that bad if there had been 5 other bowlers on there. It didn't change conditions on that lane all night. As a team we all average above or at 200 and I was the only one even close to a 600. 2 other guys on my team shot 503 and 507. I was the only one that adjusted somewhat but I got lucky with 4 or 5 brooklyns. WOW
Average anywhere from 214-196 depending on 10 pins

206, 213, 194 for a 613. First series over 600 for me in almost 2 years. I'm learning to read this oil pattern. If I come out of the oil too soon, ball loses energy and I leave 7's. If i come out too late it skates past the breakpoint and I'm left with 1-3-6-7's or buckets. Wait...a ball that I threw can skate?? Hasn't happened in years.

Now I see what everyone's been telling me. The Tropical Storm is a weak ball. I even sanded it to 600 and got little movement in practice frames. I'm finding I like the idea of a strong ball in oil, so the TS will come out of the bag and the used Storm X Factor Vertigo(currently being redrilled) will take up the space.
Currently using:
Claw Hammer Urethane
White Dot

Better swing, more accuracy, and more spares.
A 200 avg. before summer.

Thought I'd get in a little practice before league tonight. Have been bowling well the last few days, averaging about 220. Well today I made the (BIG) mistake of going to the gym first and running for 25 minutes. My legs felt like spaghetti afterwards, and I bowled like it too. 145-213-153, 511. Ugh.

The lanes were also really dry and I couldn't get a decent line to the pocket, except for about 5 frames to start the second game. I had about half a dozen 10 pins and 7 splits over the three games. I actually only missed two makable spares; that's how bad it was.

And to think, my last game before today was a 279 (take note lakredrai). Hope I get my strength back tonight for league.

Stopped in with my daughter today for 3 quick games...

168-246-170, 584/194avg. Kind of a nutty lane at first, I had to move right 5 boards to find the pocket, and then back left about 3. 2nd game started with an open 1st, but spared 2nd and proceeded to hit 5 strikes, 1 spare and 4 more strikes to close it out.

Keeping informal track of my games the past few weeks, most of my 'average' games, like #1 and #3 today, have 2 open frames. Note to self: Pick those 2 frames up! That would put me at my goal of a 190avg by Christmas...

Daughter actually listened to me today! We got her backswing straightened out so she is not rotating her arm and wrist across the top of the ball at release, and, as a bonus, she is trying not to stand up as she releases the ball. 100-87-111. She does have that weird reverse curve thing going on... but one thing at a time!
