I would find a good finger-tipped hard-rubber ball and try that. I would also use 16 pounds unless it's just too heavy.

Become a 'stroker'.

Good Luck,


right. mmm-kay. so I beat 700 series by grinding better, by getting more spares.

I thought you were talking about the 'bar' lanes where the oil seeped between the boards on the wooden lanes.

If you're shooting somewhere, where your opponents can post a 700+ 'on- demand' just because it's a sweeper and you can't, congratulate them on shooting really well, have another beer and accept they're just a lot better than you :-)

Note - that's 700+ with handicap. Not 700 scratch. Since anything over 220 is "bonus" pins (not included in handicap) I can't begrudge it, only admire. It's the 200 avg bowlers who will drop their average at the end of the season enough to get 60-80 pins' worth of handicap for sweeps and then pop off 700hdcp scores to get the money.

And I do congratulate them in person - and sincerely.

Sounds like you need a 5 pin drop rule :-)
