Cool video. Interesting the ball gets down the lane so well given the low RG.

Remember a lot of us don't really speak "dual-angle", I had to google the layout to decide what your I thought your intent was with the layout. Maybe a quick one-line description would be helpful, i.e. "I chose this layout to show the ball's potential with a medium roll time, large track flare, and medium transition time." (Iike I say, I don't really speak "dual-angle", LOL, I'm sure you could explain this better). I'm not suggesting a whole seminar on the dual-angle method, just a quick word on what you expect from the layout given your ball speed, rev rate, and track.

Thanks for the idea, I will definitely try to incorporate that into my future reviews.

Maybe what I will do is add a text portion under the video (similar to the reviews MattyG posts here) so that I can give more information than what I can do in the short amount of time I have to talk.

Good idea! I like it!

You know, Sk8, that could be a great (I mean GREAT) video - explanation (in layman's terms) of dual-angle and a translation into "traditional" terms so that we non-bowling-geeks (well, semi-geeks) can transition our brains. I bet you'd get a TON of views. . . it would be valuable.

I actually already captured all the video footage to do something like this I have just been bogged down with "real work" and then the ball review stuff the last couple weeks.

First off, I am working on a Pro Shop Series were I talk about some stuff a Pro Shop might now that most average bowlers might not understand but I can't come up with a catchy name for the series. Any thoughts on a name anyone?

Thanks for the idea of the "Dual Angle" video, I am definitely going to do it now. I have had the footage for weeks but didn't work on it because I wasn't sure it would "sell" like I want my videos to "sell" so I have put it off so far.

I will start working on it shortly!

I have to get my second episode of "Language of the Pins" wrapped up first, I am about 3/4 of the way done with it so might as well finish it up. This one will be a little longer than the last.

For a name on the "Pro Shop" series what about "Between the Lines" and kind of play off the scribe lines on the bowling ball for drilling?

"Between The Lines- Dual-Angle Made Easy" or somesuch.

Don't forget that ROP review smile

The "Between the Lines" would be the name of the series, then each episode would have its own name attached to the end of it, similar to how a series on TV would have.

So for that episode it would be something like you mentioned, later I might break down cores and how they drive a bowling balls motion and that would be "Between the Lines - Understanding Cores" or whatever, something like that.

Sound good?

As far as the ROP, I am drilling mine up tonight. I wanted to drill it a few weeks ago but I have been so busy in the shop I haven't had a chance. I have thrown them at our demo's already so I have a good idea what I want the ball to do.
