I have suffered every split I can think of except the Sour Apple/Lily. I've seen it more than a few times and that's about as close as I'd like to get.

Well I ran from work directly to the Pro Shop and as timing would have it Ed punched up my Hy-Road. No self respecting ball junkie gets a new ball and waits to try it. I detoured to my local lanes and rolled pretty good with it 226-227-210 (split in 10th last game). The ball is drilled pin over with a weight hole below and to the right of the finger grips. I asked the Pro Shop what my PAP is and if memory serves me it was 5.25 x 3 3/8s up? (I think thats what it was, does that sound right?) It doesn't to me yet but I'm working on that part of the game.

The ball seems to hit good. It doesn't rev up as easy as the Bash, not as skid/flippy as the One Pearl and is a little more angular. If I remember anything ever about my game I need to play the right side of the lane and stay away from playing boards. For me straighter is greater without a doubt.

It took me a little while to get settled because I was late for my bowling class but regardless, the Demo-Man remembered how to pound the pocket. I still had a couple of whoops shots but I got pretty consistent.

Through five games, 146, 166, 201, 185, 180

The last three games combined for a 566 series.

I made some major adjustments to my approach and they paid off. I adjusted my hand position and worked on my release. You don't know how happy I was to finally have my Venus out-hook my Scout. I could play anywhere from the 6 board to the 13 board at the arrows. I was stoked and still am.

The last knuckles of my index, middle and ring finger in my right hand are all a little sore. I still haven't quite figured out my spare ball adjustment yet. But today showed some promise. It is getting more and more obvious that I'm going to need a plastic spare ball for comfort and release purposes if anything else. And the way things look now, I should be able to get it within the next couple of weeks.

Be like water making its way through cracks. Don't be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Mike, that up coordinate on your PAP is probably wrong. I've never known anyone to have more than 1.5" I think and that's a lot still. It's most likely just 3/8" up for you, that's what mine is(along with 4 5/8" over). Nothing wrong with your horizontal cooridinate, it's actually pretty desirable for more roll I think.

Yeah the 5.25 was a definite, the last part I know I heard him say it but he said 3 then thumbed through the paper work to double check then said 3/8s so what you said makes sense. Without me knowing the specifics I just tell them what I'm bowling on, the problems I'm running into or what I'm looking to do and they always find a great ball suggestion and lay out. I'd still like to know more than just the basics.

226, 200, 257: 683. Not the seven I wanted, but hey, given some distractions and playing a line outside my comfort zone at a brokedown house that doesn't excite me (USBowl off Duke for the NoVA folks here)...yay.
