I am just looking for some definition of this shot as the upcoming nationals will be this format. I know that a typical house shot is somewhere between 10:1 and 20:1 ratio of oil between the center of the lane and the outside (I think). Meaning your ball is always heading towards the pocket, a more forgiving shot.
I have read that the sport shot is somewhere at 2:1 to 3:1, thus alot more flat oil. A very unforgiving shot.
Is there any requirement as to how long or short the shot must be?
I know none of my current equipment is going to be any good.
Best way to attack this? deep inside, up the boards?
I know accuracy and speed is at a premium.
Next question is going to be drilling/ball recommendations.

As far as I know there is no restriction on the length for a sport shot, as long as if falls with in the ratio. As for equipment, angle of attack and so on, it will depend on the amount of and pattern of the oil that is used and your personal style. I heard this year.

As it seems you are new to the site, I will also welcome you. I missed this on a previous reply to another post. There is a wealth of knowledge and experience here and everyone even the newest of bowlers find some way to contribute.

Nope, no requirement for length or volume. There's really little you can do to predict the condition you will see at nationals. They do post the pattern, you can ask your house to put it down. But it won't play the same in your house as it does at the National setting.

I don't remember when the shot is posted, hopefully before we leave. We are scheduled the 2nd week of the tournament.
There are people here that have seen me bowl, and after the shot is posted, they surely would accept my $$ for a ball, but I'm not a fan of just trying something.
I might just get a ball there.
Thank you all for your insight.

If you are scheduled the second week the shot should be posted before you go. I think they will do it a week or two before the start. As I've never bowled in it I can't be certain but I have done some reading of posts on it on other sites.
