X / X / X / X / X /
30 50 80 100 130 150 180 200 230 250

So you would shoot 50 pins higher because of the big strike bonus. Not bad but I still don't think its perfect.


Well, technically, it would be a 245 assuming that the spares were all 9/'s. 19 for each spare frame, 9 from the 1st ball + the 10 pins.

30 49 79 98 128 147 177 196 226 245

Now, if I shoot a dutch 200 going X9/ the whole game, I get a 200, as we all know. If someone else gets the front 5 and then goes 9/ for the next 5 frames with a 9 on the fill ball, they get a 234. That bowler could miss 3 of the 5 single pin spares and still win because he strung his strikes, even though we both had the same # of strikes and my spare shooting was much better than his. The current system does put more emphasis on stringing strikes than it does on making spares. If we use my idea, that person also has a 245 and we tie.

30 60 90 120 150 169 188 207 226 245

I believe that this idea would be fair.

Does anyone have a tape or DVD of the event that he/she is willing to share? I'll be happy to pay any reasonable fee.

I can't stand "CDB"'s "yeeeaAAHHHHHHH!" cackle-y-ish thing she lets out after strikes. Nothing personally against her, but I can't listen to her. Woessner was the best out of the group, and really impressed me when I saw her whoop CDB in Baltimore.

From taking a look back at the Women's series event on Xtra Frame, the pins were very lively! Pins were flying everywhere, one or two messengers scouting for the ten when it was already down? The gutters were also pretty lively.

Kegel has one of the best carry percentages in all of bowling. If you look in the stands during the King of Bowling event you should be able to see at least a few signs that point it out. I know there was one that said "Thank god for Kegel Carry!". They have all steel kick backs and the pits are very prone to sending pins back onto the deck. I have seen quite a few 7-10 split conversions there.

It was as bad as nails on a chalkboard. It drove me crazy as well! It might be why she did so well in the Womens Series it drove her competitors batty as well. It's so crude!

The carry was quite shocking! I know that wouldn't happen in any of our centers.

Is this how they balance out the PBA and Sport shots? Make the physical lane specs the most carry prone they are allowed?

Some of the messengers (Feldman's in particular) made Tommy Jone's messengers shameful. Trip 2/8's were pretty common.

I am not sure if they do it for any particular reason, I do know that they do countless testing there for ball reps, engineers, and the likes. Those lanes are actually sitting on pistons and they can be adjusted at every two feet. They run tournies there where they will create a pattern that is basically impossible to strike, something like the lanes going down hill and slanting to the right as it goes down lane so that way the ball has a hard time hooking. Its pretty fun playing on that stuff.
