I found out that a new technology is available.
It is a sensor that is installed in a switchgrip equipped balance hole in a ball you do not care about (so...go through the closet and find a symmetrical without balance hole for this experiment)...then, you roll it about 6 or 8 times or whatever. Then, the sensor is removed and plugged into a 'pute via usb, and it downloads the speed, axis tilt, axis rotation and PAP for each of the shots! HOLY COW!!! My driller told me that it has pointed out errata in several people's stats, and it will DEFINITELY alter the way I have balls laid out and drilled. My PAP was ok over, but is apparently no longer 1/2"up. I am all about technology, so I am totally sold on this little device and software. See if it is available in your area!!

When I first saw the post, this is what came to my mind.

http://www.ebibowling.com/about2

I'm not sure if Ebonite has a competitor now or if this is what 6_ball_man was referencing. There's a few videos you can find on youtube that show it in action.

I'll inquire at the ball review next monday.

I was told, Ebonite had this device a couple of years ago, but didn't know how to market it. Is it for pro shops or bowlers?

Apparently, it is making a resurgence in bowling shows and gathering an audience. It inserts like a Switch grip or IT system in the balance hole of a ball. After use, remove and just plug it into a USB port and get the read out of your stats.

I think pricing will have to be affordable for individuals to buy it. I'd be willing to cough up $100 max, others may not.

I'd be interested in one of these devices.

Yeah...that WOULD be nice, wouldn't it? LoL
I think I remember my Pro Shop guy saying it was designed and built by Ebonite. The sensor is NOT cheap...don't know about the software and firmware....which he said has been updated a few times since they invested in it. They devoted a laptop to the system. I will learn more the next time I go over there and post back. I am just excited that a new technology is being developed to come up with solid numbers for personal stats!

As far as I can tell, it is being marketed to pro shops to be sold as a service.

With it being expensive, I can't see many PSOs buying the system. A lot of PSOs are struggling as it is.

It's a nice to have but definitely not a must have for PSOs.

KOOL
A sensor, small enough to fit under a finger insert, is placed inside the ball and measures the bowler’s rev rate, ball speed, axis tilt and rotation and computes the positive axis point. Accuracy of the device is unprecedented, with less than 1% margin of error when determining rev rate and approximately 1.2% for ball speed. Tilt and rotation is accurate to within two degrees.
