If 9 pins counted as strikes, I'd be averaging 220. I leave the 10, the 7, the 8, the 9, the 4. To make matters worse, the 4-9, the 8-10 etc. Its almost as if it's a 9 pin fill or a split.
We do bowl for fun in a no tap league, I'm most always around 670-690.
I roll an Ebonite tps 2.
Have fun with this one.
I need help, I clean the ball after each session, have had it professionally cleaned, no difference.

Well.. its kinda hard 2 tell what your doin wrong w/o more info... do u throw a straight ball?? or spin it like a top?? kinda sounds like 1 of these... Sounds Like your Ball is NOT driving threw the pocket... or your NOT throwing the ball the same way eveytime... You need a Good Coach behind You as you Bowl.... They would shed alot of Light on Your Problems.... But this will Help some..... Practice on hitting a Target (arrows or a certain Board)on the Alley, (dont worry where the ball goes yet).... 1st get your aim straigt... then watch where the Ball goes... if it hits to much in the Head Pin, Move Left..if your to light in the Pocket move Right until your Dead in the pocket smile an next time You Bowl... Keep the same Target.... just adjust your Feet....every Lane is Different.... The Faster You find your Line the Higher Scores You will get.... But Remember....Dont be scared to try different Lines to the Pocket... Good Luck smile

Taps are part of the game, and usually the breaks even out in the end. You can't carry every good shot. Make the spare (if possible), keep an even keel, and just keep going back to the hole.

there's a big difference between a solid 8 and a flat 10.You would really have to get a trained eye to watch you bowl.
