I'm still here too. Going to be bowling in my association's tournament for league champions later today. I hope we do better than we did 6 years ago.

I think a lot of folks are still here, just not much to talk about thee days. If they're notified of postings by email, they just wait for something interesting to come across.

Well I think I figured it out. If I did this wrong let me know. There may be another way but went into Watch Forums and had email set to when new post created. Let's see if it works for this post.

When the flow is as low as the last few weeks, email is the way to go. Summer is always slower, everyone is outside playing.

I would have thought all the rule changes would have caused more discussion but that didn't happen.

My latest interest is for 'Specto Bowling'. That's the tracer system you see on PBA events. I'm in Northern CA and there's a place in Southern OR I think I might visit.

I've been trying to determine how much it costs, but haven't received a response to my email. It must be expensive based on the low number of centers who have installed it. For me, just having an accurate picture of what I actually do versus what I think I do would be helpful. As we age, we don't get stronger so we must get smarter.

That's how. You can select as many of the forums as you like. I have them all selected, but I've never received a notification email for some. I think 'user groups' on other social media platforms are where most people have gone. I was on Facebook for awhile and there were dozens of user groups for bowlers in every area of the country.

It may heat up when the changes go into effect with the use of liquid cleaners this year and especially with weight holes next year. I still putting off filling holes until just before then. I have my 2 Hy-Roads to do out of the current balls that I am using so not in a hurry.

Specto bowling looks looks interesting.

I've already had all my balance holes filled. I did a lot of experimenting with dual angles and have tried some new layouts based on Mo Pinel videos I've watched on YouTube.

I'm a high track player and avoided some layouts because I feared they would hook too early or roll out, but that hasn't happened. I bought a Roto Grip IDOL and drilled it with a 4 inch pin to PAP and a 40 degree VAL angle. It works well except from deep inside. I'm going to take one of my old Hy-Roads and drill in with a 3-3/8 inch pin to PAP and a 25 degree VAL angle and see what happens.

I'm finding I can buy weaker coverstocks and drill them stronger if I want the ball to go longer or buy aggressive coverstocks and drill them weaker if I want them to read the lanes earlier. I was a
50 x 5 x 50 person but now everything I own is less than 4 x less than 40 degrees.

I would think that any center that installed 'Specto' could charge enough to pay for the system. However, based on the number of centers who have it, there must be something else that's making proprietors stay away. I'm assuming cost, but it might be something else. There's not a single center in CA with it.
