You the man Sk8!

I had my first time of using the VG in league tonight, and I was very impressed with how well that ball made me look good. It just threw messengers and carried light hits like nobody's business. It is my very first Storm product. I still have to get used to what the ball wants to do and knowing when to put it back on the rack/bag. It works very well on the fresh and will be the first ball that sees league play.

Whoo hoo, lookit Sk8 get his mojo back! Way to rally from last week, babe!

Sorry I'm behind, but Wed was a disaster. 221, 219, 154 and was clean up until 3rd game. Went through everything in my bag, including running out to my car for the Fast. Adjusted for burnt out heads and backends to no avail. Thought Natural would save me, but it'd jump/skid/rollout/hit flat 7-10s. Nice.

Stayed and practiced afterwards and learned I have to go forward in thumb pitch some more. Been upwards to 7 pieces of tape for the past two weeks and practice confirmed I can't do less, but too much and thumb won't fit. Picking up VG today at 1/4" forward. Let's see.

Me dumb and no use intertubes right. Sk8, see your congrats in the weekly score thread. Sigh.

Tragedy was our boys' loss and my having to eat crow to some Dirty Birds fans. I really need some better friends outside our division.

Anyway, adjusted two aggressives to 1/2" forward in the thumb, but I haven't gotten a chance to practice. See how it goes tonight. Hope it's my biggest problem aside from being an idiot.

Nice shootin' Taylor! That ball is the truth. I now know someone in my Friday night league who has it. It's an older guy that just chucks the ball down the lane, and it rolls very awkward. Either way, I saw how well he was carrying pins and moving them around. I'm surprised that there are VERY few bowlers here using the C-System line of balls. I've only seen three others so far.

This week I shot a 598 series in league on Wed, and I finally figured out the surface prep that needs to be done in order for me to score well and stay consistent. The VG has to be at 2000 while my pin up 3.5 needs to be at 500. I use the VG in the first game, use the 3.5 in the second because it is better with oil carrydown/transition and then the last game I go back to the VG.

I also developed a pre-shot routine last night which I think helped me stay focus in repeating shots one after the other. I was amazed at how easy it was to string strikes. My longest run was 7-in-a-row after an open in the 1st. So now that there are about 13-14 weeks remaining in both leagues I will definitely have to put up numbers!

I'm sure that $50 rebate has something to do with it as well.
