Had a good night last night. First time back throwing on a sport shot in about a month as I have been working alot. Last nights pattern was a 50 foot sport shot. Used my fireroad and was able to play strght up 2nd arrow and the ball just walked right in to the pocket. I qualified 5th for match play by only 1 pin and then won each match all the way thru. That was the hard way but it worked well. After every game of match play we move 1 pair to the right so in the first match i won 212 to 187 then moved right and could not hit anything and was leaving splits every other shot so ended with a 149 but luckly the guy I was bowling against had even more issues and only shot a 137 (gotta love a sport pattern) but after that i was on a roll. Shot a clean 227 in the semi and a clean 236 in the finals. In the finals I had to drop down to my frantic and move 3 boards as this pair was hooking alot more . But was able to find a good line right away and just stuck with it. Feels good to bowl that well on such a long and heavy pattern.

Thanks. I have been there. The last one I went to I got 6th also and was only 2 pins back. So this time being 1 pin up on # 6 was kinda nice and I took advanage of it and ran thru all the spots LOL.

Very nice man! I caught word of a guy locally, that got in some major trouble in an ABT. Word has it he was soon to be a Storm staffer, and he cheated in an ABT tournament to bump him into the ladder. Added 10 pins to one of his games. The guy that runs the ABT here caught it, and now he's banned from USBC for two years, and lost his PBA card. He was a regional pro I guess...

Great job, congrats!...Nice to see you used the Fire Road. This is my next ball to get so all I need to figure out is how I want it drilled. What is your drill pattern?

It is a pin up 4.5 inches from pap. That is all I remeber off the top of my head. The fireroad is a great ball. I def moves on the backend. That is good and bad all at the same time. On a fresh shot it gets thru the heads nicely and makes a strong movement on the back end. But intern when the heads start to burn up it does not hooking up a little early which is why I had to drop to the frantic by the last game. But that is why I have multiple balls so that i can make the switch and keep on going.
