I am a planter. No slide at all.
I hate it when the approaches are slippery, it seems like I can't get any traction and I feel like I can't make a straight approach.
I am thinking of going to try tennis shoes like Michael Haugen.
Do they make non sliding bowling shoes for planters?

I have a slide.

But, I am sure there is an inter changeable sole that doesn't.

Along the lines of what Dennis said, you could consider a pair of Dexters with interchangeable soles for both feet and put traction soles and heels on both feet. Personally, I like to slide and estimate my slide to be around 2 ft long (hard to tell exactly from videos from behind.)

A quick note:
Today I picked up my Purple Hammer.
I will try it tomorrow at Parkway where I bowl doubles league and compare it to the Widow.
My hope is it will be the perfect ball down option when the Widow is hooking too much, or hitting flat from rolling out when the volume is not enough for it.

OK my team mate has decided to by a CRUTCH, I mean a Black Widow Urethane. nelson

He asked me beforehand if he bought one one would it mess me up. I responded if that's what you want buy it. I will adjust. So in the near future I may be able to make comments on adjusting when bowling on the same lanes with urethane.

Also will give me a chance to throw his to see how it reacts for me. We both use interchangeable thumbs and same size finger inserts although his span is a tad shorter I can still throw his with problem.

So whatever happened to your friend and his Black Widow urethane?
Did he get it and did he mess you up?

Yes he did but no it does not mess me up. When he uses it he plays between the 2nd and 3rd arrows. I play outside of him. Our house shot is longer than most. It favors either high revs or lower speed players in order to play left of the 2nd arrow. He is lower speed.
