That's what I got the Neptune for actually. I usually throw it with very low revs and have it drilled to go long, but it still hooks back hard even then lol.

Low revs or not its going to hook a ton because the layout has it storing energy and then expending it quickly causing the crazy hard turn your are talking about.

Yeah I know. I told the driller to drill it so it'd go long and have moderate back end. I think it has more back end than I wanted it to lol.

I've been out of bowling for fifteen years until a few weeks ago. I was ready to get a high end ball but was advised against it by our local CoachJim. He recommended A Hammer Vibe or Avalanche Slide. I went with the Brunswick Avalanche Slide. I found what I thought was the groove last week but kept hitting the Brooklyn side, figuring that's just the way it's going to be from now on.

Then I foolishly got a Brunswick Power Groove Dry R (for dry lanes, less aggressive hook) and had it drilled the same way thinking it would solve the problem. Well it did, kinda-sorta.

Back to the Avalanche, I moved closer to the heads, left leg touching the ball return. I was hitting the pocket or very close to it. If I wasn't so doggone tired from the previous 4 games, I probably would have scored around 200. This time I found the REAL groove.

Turns out the Power Groove is a great spare ball for pins on the right side.

Both of those balls are Brunswick's lower end reactive entry balls. I'm sticking with them until I improve my accuracy, speed, and revs.
