Well the roller coaster I have been on these past few weeks never even got started tonight.
I am absolutely disgusted, and even had thoughts of going home after the first game...fiegning an illness.

But I stuck with it, and did'nt even break 500. A nightmare of a night. Its like I never bowled before...and my average is dropping like a stone. AAARG!!

Bowling is not any fun lately.

When I get a gutter ball,. I whip out a Texas Twister and make it a spare.

My roller coaster went into that big down hill, last night. 230-200-159. And, the last game was not pretty. 4 missed spares in the first 6 and then a gutter ball in the 7th. I lost all coordination.

Happens when I pick up speed.

My problem as well Dennis.
I don't know where the heck I think I'm rushing off to. I start off nice and steady, and then its like I'm going downhill. My cadence is something like this....1.....2,.3,4 release, come over the top, pull the ball. Nice....

Bowled 12 games today. This time, I got two lanes and did it league style.

I learned my lesson and left the C System 3.5 at home. The Lion is much more indicative of the kind of ball these lightly oiled wood lanes require.

Bowled 5 release styles using 5 balls. straight up 3, straight up 5, straight up 10, inside shot, and Texas Twister (my name for helicopter).

I am happy to report that of the 2 helicopter games I threw, one had 7 strikes and scored 208, making two times in a row that I've thrown 2 helicopter games and one of them was 200+. (Left the 1-2-5-9 one time. never saw that with a hook shot! (it might have been 1-2-5-8; not sure....))...

Messengers come from the left and the right with the helicopter shot I use. Not on the same shot, of course. The head pin either goes left or right, and takes out a few pins after bouncing off the wall (which, for some reason, seems to be called the kickback plate).

On the hook shots, I was able to use speed, axis changes, and rev changes (fingers) to adjust shots. This is a small breakthrough, as previously I've always spent most of my time battling thumb and span issues (due to all my balls being different).

I used 1 ball with 3/16 reverse pitch and 3 with 0 pitch, all with equal finesse-ability. Plus, of course, the standard-grip plastic for spares and Texas Twister. Ball weights varied from 14 to 16 pounds.

avg 164.5 over 12 games, mainly because not all the lines worked. (!!!!). I think I might finally have the answer for wood lanes - no big hooks (not for me, at least). I can rev the ball all I want, but only on the oil, not on the dry. (Not that I always revved it today - I varied from maybe 200 to masybe 400 revs (just a guess)). I added revs two ways - by cup/uncup and by finger flipping (make a fist).

Another thing I did, just as a lark, was throw a reactive very fast with 90 degree axis rotation at the 3-9-10, and actually picked it up. This is an accomplishment, as you would expect the shot to veer left of the pocket, but the fact that I kept it right of the 3 pin and actually hit the 9 and 10 pin with it shows the control I was able to accomplish on many shots today.

As mentioned yesterday, I picked up several spares with my Texas Twister to day, and on the other attempts usually got 9 pins.

At any rate, long story short - I had a blast!

I meant 200-400 RPM, of course.
