too much hook: Ron, Sure, change the surface (smooth, add slip agents or scuff/sand with Abralon pads). Reduce the friction potential, slicker, smoother surface (longer, later) or increase the friction potential, dull, rougher surface (earlier, milder backend). Your...

Bowling: Bowling Ball, abralon, target
abralon, target, breakpoint: You can polish the ball to increase the skid. That will also increase the sharpness at the breakpoint. You can add an extra hole if there is not one already. That might will make it roll a bit sooner, but calm down the breakpoint. You can also lightly...

Bowling: Bowling ball pinches the tip of my thumb, thumb hole, blood blister
thumb hole, blood blister, bowling league: If you are having pain or discomfort, then the ball does not fit you as well as it needs to. The discoloration is caused by squeezing the ball to hold on to it. That can be caused by the pitch being wrong for your hand, the thumb hole being too big, or the...

Bowling: Bowling Surface Grit, striking motion, middle image
striking motion, middle image, rubbing alcohol: Jonathan, The clock on the youtube video showed 3 seconds, maybe a hair less, so you are about 13 and a half to 14 mph. You shot was dead down the middle of the lane, not the outside shot going up outside of the second arrow. With shine or oil soaking...

Bowling: ball fit, thumb hole, finger holes
thumb hole, finger holes, hole problem: It may be a combination of things. The first thing I would do is use some tape to tighten up the thumb hole. If that takes care of the problem, great. When placing the tape, dont put all of it in one place. If you place it all on the front of the thumb...

Bowling: ball line-up, ball arsenal
ball arsenal: Michael, You can align your arsenal to allow more angles to the pocket or concentrate your equipment to get optimum control of your favorite target line(s). Do you want 3-4 balls to play league, or 5-7 balls to bowl various tournament conditions? The higher...

Bowling: ball top weight and pin lenth, layout thanks, gravity
layout thanks, gravity, good luck: I would request a ball with 3-4 ounces of top weight and a 3-4 inch pin. If you are a full roller, you will want to place the pin in a 7:30 position from your grip center. That should give you a good reaction for your style of player. If you need the...

Bowling: Which bowling ball is for me?, ball weight
ball weight: Vikki, My guess would be your ball is plastic or rubber. The driller who plugged it should be able to verify. Your ball weight is dictated by your desire to knock down pins. With a well fit bowling ball, the ball lets go of you, so grip pressure is eliminated...

Bowling: bowling ball information, axis tilt, axis rotation
axis tilt, axis rotation, lane surface: Bill, None. Your losing effect because the ball is 11lbs. Without knowing your ball speed, rev rate, lane surface, conditions (dry - whole lane, outsides, middle?), path to the pocket, axis tilt and axis rotation, it is difficult to just pick a ball. How...

Bowling: breaking wrist and shoulder drop, back swing, backswing
back swing, backswing, thant: Dropping your shoulder is not a bad thing if done in moderation. Many of the top bowlers have their bowling shoulder lower than there non bowling shoulder at the release point. If you are really concerned about it, try to keep your left hand below the left...

Bowling: Century 100 Oiler 1983 manufacture date, old christmas, oiler
old christmas, oiler, christmas tree: The best information would be to call one of the distributors of lane machines. If they would not have the information, they would know someone that could help you. I do not have that kind of information. The only phone number I can remember right now...

Bowling: Finding a good ball, core combinations, power groove
core combinations, power groove, reactive resin: Joe, The more demanding entry level ball would be plastic. Constructed like a house ball, something smooth, shiny and hard demands that you learn to throw the ball with some consistency. When you can hook plastic, you can hook ANYTHING. The Tornado, Columbia...

Bowling: Fingertip concern, finger grips stick up
finger grips stick up: Frank, The grip sticking up is a minor problem. If the grip is sanded or shaved down then rubbed with Acetone (the chemical melts and smoothes the surface, careful Acetone is nasty stuff), they ll be flush with the ball. Apparently your driller pitched...

Bowling: breaking wrist and shoulder drop, kegel training center, bowling world
Bowling: breaking wrist and shoulder drop, kegel training center, bowling world, elite training

Bowling: Release, Revolutions, fingers, hook
Bowling: Release, Revolutions, fingers, hook, bowling

Bowling: full roller bowling balls, bowling balls, oil patterns
bowling balls, oil patterns, core designs: I would not say that certain balls work best for a full roller, but certain layouts. A full roller has a track that is between the finger an thumb holes. This type of track can not use the layouts designed for 3/4 or spinner track bowlers. If they are used,...

Bowling: Grip and Pitches, pitch changes, different pitches
pitch changes, different pitches, simple answer: I am not sure if there is a simple answer to the span question. I have seen bowlers be successful with spans that look way too long and there are bowlers that are successful with spans that look way too short. Each bowler is unique and I would suggest to...

Bowling: Hand position and release, improve release
improve release: Sam, Get a small football. Throw the football underhand, to a target. The unique shape of the football will be hard to throw in a tight spiral. A similar hand action is needed to roll a bowling ball with good rotation. Practice with the football, with...

Bowling: hand under ball, approach speed, mike machuga
approach speed, mike machuga, hard time: I would look at timing as the cause of this problem. You need to wait on the ball and let it drop from the top of your swing. This lets the ball lead your hand to the release area of the swing and helps keep the hand under the ball naturally. If your approach...

Bowling: how many holes are allowed in a bowling ball, holes in a bowling ball
holes in a bowling ball: Norm, To answer your question, a hole for each digit (fingers and thumb, 5 gripping holes) is legal, plus the weight hole is 6 (from the USBC). In the US, the United States Bowling Congress (USBC), our membership organization, allows 5 vent holes (one...

Bowling: New Ball Help, improve your bowling
improve your bowling: Mike, I d strongly recommend an International Bowling Pro Shop and Instructors Association (IBPSIA) member/store. Look up your area on the ibpsia.com website and find the nearest member(s). You are interviewing a sports consultant, to assist in your choices....

Bowling: outside in armswing, ball fit, arm swing
ball fit, arm swing: Angelo, I ve worked with a lot of players with challenges, from arthritis to missing digits and other difficulties. Your situation is intriguing. I d like to know more about what s going on. Can you forward a copy of your fit sheet and a photo of your...

Bowling: having a pap measurement, league bowlers, power groove
league bowlers, power groove, performance ball: LJ, I hope you weren t dealing with some idiot web guy who thinks the same weightblock is in EVERY ball (You were MISINFORMED, or they don t know, probably the later. Great resource to buy a sophisticated piece of sports equipment.). Why wouldn t you just...

Bowling: Release, Revolutions, rev rate
rev rate: Christopher, The recommendation to spin the football applies to what you want to do. Spinning the ball and getting a spiral is easy. Spinning it faster and faster, still maintaining the spiral is the trick. Your rev rate can be increased, like a faster...

Bowling: release and drilling, downswing, bowlers
downswing, bowlers, layouts: For layout information and potential ball reaction, go to any of the bowling manufacturers web sites. Morich, Storm, and Ebonite have some of the best. The inside and outside of the ball comment is the position the hand is during the downswing. Most of...

Bowling: revs on a ball, right hander, revolutions
right hander, revolutions, elbow: Robert, Tough to describe. But, with shoulder closing, elbow and wrist driving the hand and fingers lifting and spinning the ball, you will impart strong revolutions to a ball. Do the balls feel heavy? 12 mph is pretty slow. How is the ball feeling?...

Bowling: Thumb clearing the ball, thumb hole, hole chip
thumb hole, hole chip, redone: What was your pitch before? Although it seems to be the right thing to do is to add reverse and left pitch to get out of the ball cleaner, it might actually be causing you to grip the ball more, thus causing you to hang up in it. If you can just slug the...

Bowling: Thumb Release, foul line, revs
foul line, revs, thumb: The first thing to look at is to make sure your span and thumb pitch is not an issue. This would have to be done by a reputable pro shop. If the fit is causing you to squeeze the ball, you will not have a repeatable thumb release. Second is to check your...

Bowling: thumb release, foul line, thumb
foul line, thumb, good luck: I would have 2 things checked that might be an issue. Check your span and check your thumb pitch. If either, or both, of those are off, you will have problems with holding on to the ball. If your thumb changing sizes is and issue, and you dont like using...

Bowling: top weight and pin length, layout thanks, cg 2
layout thanks, cg 2, ring finger: I would go with a 4 inch pin if possible and 3 to 3 1/2 ounces of top weight. I would place the pin near the ring finger and the cg 2 1/2 to 3 inches right of the center of your grip. (if you are right handed) Then place the extra hole to get the ball...

Bowling: top weight and pin, target zone, layout choices
target zone, layout choices, rules of thumb: There is not a problem with dropping down to 15#. I have used that for the past 20 years or so. Based on the info, the copperhead will give you more backend reaction than the blue one you are using. I am sure once you get used to it, you will enjoy...

Bowling: Whats a Tweener to do?, ball reaction
ball reaction: Steve, The fact that you can get a plastic ball to hook, but not carry, leads me to think you are bowling on the Typical House Shot (THS) with BIG friction outside of 10 Board (Second Arrow). Could you put your plastic ball out further than 7? Too much...

Bowling: Is 5/8" fwd thumb pitch excessive?, thumb pad, finger hole
thumb pad, finger hole, ibpsia: 1. Stretching a litte when checking the span that way is ok, but I would be carefull in stretching too much. 2. That does seem to be an excessive amount of pitch, in any direction. I know of bowlers that use as much as 3/8, but no more. 3. That might...

Bowling: ASYMMETIC BALL, time kenny, cg
time kenny, cg, pap: If you want to get the most length out of an asymmetric ball, you will need to get the pin, Cg, and MB inline. As the cg or MB is moved to the right, the ball will want to make a move a bit sooner. Coverstock will make a big impression on the balls breakpoint...

Bowling: Ball for Dry Lanes, attitude shift, columbia 300
attitude shift, columbia 300, storm line: If you want to stay in the Storm line of bowling balls, I would suggest the Street Rod Pearl. If you want to try another line, I would look at the Emerald Vibe by Hammer. The Street Rod Pearl would hook a bit sooner than the Vibe, but probably be easier...

Bowling: Balls with High Differential, Higher Dfferential Balls
Higher Dfferential Balls: Rich, Sure. The Hammer RaZr, All the Columbia Scouts, The Columbia Jazz line, The Tornado line from Ebonite, The 900Global Link(s), The AMF Angle(s)(revisited), Brunswick s Groove and Power Groove balls. Some mid priced balls with High Diff include The...

Bowling: Becoming A Pro, PBA Memebership

Bowling: Bowling ball, bowling ball, straight pin
bowling ball, straight pin, straight line: As a ball driller, I would rather have all of them inline if I know nothing about the customer. Some that are not in line can be used in a variety of layouts, but others create problems and will make them much more limited. Having said that, I have only...

Bowling: bowling ball track, bowling ball, thumb
bowling ball, thumb, fingers: Michael, Have you changed your grip or is this in a new ball? Rolling lower, away from the grip is often the result of a later release. If your current ball is a little longer than previous, you may be twisting out of it unconsciously and delivering the...

Bowling: bowling balls, black hammer, switch blade
black hammer, switch blade, bowling balls: Tony, The Blade series a few years back utilized the basic Hammer core, but featured aggressive surface (example of the Switch Blade with flip block at http://www.hammerbowling.com/retired_balls/detail.php?PRKey=4). Your speed and lane condition should...

Bowling: bowling balls, bowling balls, columbia family
bowling balls, columbia family, league bowler: I would look at the Storm Street Rod pearl. That would fit what you are looking for very well. If you ball speed was higher, I would have suggested the HyRoad, but stay with the Street Rod Pearl. I think you will have fun with that one. Good luck, Chi...

Bowling: bowling balls, arsenal options
arsenal options: Nicholas, I d need more information. Which of your balls do you use most? What kind of wristguard? Is there a ball reaction you need (a reaction that you can t create but you d benefit from at least 25 percent of the time)? Earlier hook? more overall...

Bowling: bowling diminished after rotator cuff surgery?, cuff surgery, bowling balls
cuff surgery, bowling balls, heighth: As long as you listen to your doctor and physical therapist, I dont expect you to have any loss of bowling after the surgery. I am sure you will have to start back with a lighter ball and work your way back up. I still throw 15# bowling balls. Even with...

Bowling: bowling shoes, new shoes
new shoes: Bob, Are they $40 sport shoes or $140 performance leather? Shoes are the roots of your game. If the shoes slip, stick, don t perform as expected, you may choose to update. The quality of todays shoes, from most bowling shoe manufacturers, is good....

Bowling: cleaning the bowling ball, bowling ball, polishes
bowling ball, polishes, match: I would suggest any of the cleaners produced by the ball manufactures. Storm and Ebonite make a wide variety that work very well by hand. Stay with a cleaner that does not polish if the ball you have is a dull coverstock. If a polished coverstock, then...

Bowling: Differential, oil patterns, oil pattern
oil patterns, oil pattern, ball speed: I higher differential number equates to more flare potential. More flare potential will produce an earlier breakpoint and possibly more overall hook potential. The higher your ball speed, or the heavier the oil pattern, the more differential you can use....

Bowling: drilling layout for 2 handed bowler, jason belmonte, shop operator
jason belmonte, shop operator, release changes: If possible, have the pro shop operator watch you throw the ball. He or she will be able to help you pick out a layout at that time. The only suggestion I would make is to go with a control type of layout. It will be more forgiving and not want to over...

Bowling: Full Roller, bowling balls, right hander
bowling balls, right hander, ebonite smashtime: If like to play down and in, I would consider going with a pearl coverstock. Pearls tend to give you better length in the oil and more reaction down the lane in the dry. Both solid and pearl coverstocks will hook in the dry about the same. The full roller...

Bowling: Full Roller, fit issue
fit issue: Kim, The blackish bruise could be from too long or too short a span or too big a thumb hole. There is some bending and gripping going on. Put your thumb in the ball, set your fingers across the finger holes. Where do the creases of your fingers fall across...

Bowling: How to stop spinning the ball and raise my track ?, angle change, finger position
Bowling: How to stop spinning the ball and raise my track ?, angle change, finger position, full game

Bowling: timing approach
Bowling: timing approach

Bowling: fitting a ball, thumb hole, straight work
thumb hole, straight work, bowling ball: I would not try more reverse pitch. That would probably make you squeeze the ball even more. A quick thing to try would be an Ebonite Thumb Straight. I know several people that use those with success. If that does not work, I would have your span checked....

Bowling: Am I a full roller? Should I use this drilling?, left hander, nvs
left hander, nvs, finger tip: The layout on the NVS will give you a different look on the lane and should retain the energy better. That should improve your carry. I would bet you will have to try a different line to the pocket. If you can send me a picture of your ball track, and...

Bowling: Gravity Shift X-Blem, thumb hole, wether
thumb hole, wether, cg: You should be able to use this ball without a problem. I would place the pin above the bridge and just make sure the Key is to the right of your thumb hole somewhere. You might still need a small hole since the CG will be so far to the right. I would...

Bowling: getting back in the game after hand surgery, fit and ball choices
fit and ball choices: Randy, SINGLE BIGGEST PROBLEM. Your ball doesn t fit well. You understand the concept, if you have to grip with the ball hanging straight down your span is too short or holes are to big or pitches are off (or a combo of the above). Have the ball checked out...

Bowling: grip of ball, merry christmas, thumb
merry christmas, thumb, hook: Taran, Once you ve thrown with out the thumb in the ball, mimic the same delivery but get your thumb out quickly. The ball is falling off your hand when you roll without the thumb. When you put your thumb in the ball, you start thinking about holding...

Bowling: heavy oil, oily lanes?
oily lanes?: Richard, The Radical is fairly smooth. The hardly hooking is one problem, dying at the pocket another. Is the surface of your Inferno dulled from use? or is it still shiny? If it has dulled up, try some cleaner/polish. Have the local pro shop hit it with...

Bowling: Increasing Revs and Hook, more revs
more revs: Riccardo, You describe your previous delivery and you more than likely spun the ball pretty good. The rougher surface no doubt helped in that case. But it may be effecting your roll by causing the ball to start rolling too soon. Most centers have some...

Bowling: Layout For A 4 ball Arsenal, arsenal options
arsenal options: Rhyce, Your five inch pin (Avalanche) for a player with late reaction is adding fuel to the too late, too much fire that your release creates. The axis leverage layout, with the cg on your axis will create earlier roll and strong hook, complimenting...

Bowling: Layout on Virtual Gravity, stormbowling, quick move
stormbowling, quick move, middle finger: The worry I would have is the ball tracking over the grip holes. You may be safe with your PAP numbers though. I would expect this ball to give you a lot of length, but will make a quick move when it hits friction. If you were going to have to plug...

Bowling: lane conditions, lane conditioning
lane conditioning: Alex, The topography of the lane influences how a lane plays. When lanes are sanded, slight deviations can influence how a ball rolls on those lanes. While there is only .0040 of an inch tolerance, dips and depressions can influence conditioner and ball...

Bowling: New Bowling Ball, No IDEA!, avalanche series, side arrow
avalanche series, side arrow, columbia 300: Sorry, I forgot to answer that part. You will lose a little hitting power by dropping down to 14, but you may gain some control as well. Using a 14 pound ball will still let you be very competitive, especially if you go up to the Street Rod series or similar....

Bowling: New ball, columbia jazz, tropical storms
columbia jazz, tropical storms, ebonite: I am not sure what you mean by control. I would usually suggest a weaker ball with less overall hook potential than what you are using. That would tell me to suggest the Storm Tropical Storms, the Ebonite Tornados, and the Columbia Jazz. They are all reactice...

Bowling: New ball, ball choice
ball choice: Hello, Knowing you ball weight, general speed, and style helps. A little stronger core in an Ebonite product includes the Clash and Bash duos. But... My concern would be your ball speed. Medium speed with a lesser rev rate would still characterize your...

Bowling: new ball, layout recommendations, roto grip
layout recommendations, roto grip, o clock: If you want to go with Track, I would look at the new Uprising SE. If you want to go with Roto Grip, I would look at the Cell Pearl. A standard layout for both balls will be fine. Track has layouts for the Rising series of balls that I would follow. ...

Bowling: oil, lane surface, oil patterns
lane surface, oil patterns, oil 10: If the lane surface you are bowling on is pristine, then it would be considered the reverse block of old. That was what was called any lane condition that had more oil on the outside of the lane than in the middle of the lane. Although shorter than the Shark...

Bowling: old ebonite ball, serial number
serial number: Ron, Every manufacturer codes their serial numbers differently. The first number in the serial number for Ebonite is usually the last digit of the year. 1968? 78? Letter is an indicator of month manufacturer, I believe. Any idea how old the ball is? Is it...

Bowling: ordering bowling balls on line, pin placements, bowling balls
pin placements, bowling balls, storm line: The most versatile pin to look for is a 2 to 3 inch distance and the top weight is a 2.5 to 3.5 ounces. You would be able to use a wide variety of layouts to help fine tune the balls reaction. Simple is usually the easiest to control. With your ball speed,...

Bowling: Picking up the right ball, buddiesproshop com, international bowling pro shop
buddiesproshop com, international bowling pro shop, cranker: Igor, Sorry I don t know Mark s e-mail. The layout of your Terminator is basic. Do you throw hard? Does the ball hook a lot? Are the lanes you bowl on oily (a lot of skid) or dry (ball hooks before the middle of the lane)? Seeing a video would be helpful....

Bowling: plug and redrill ball, hand holes, ball answer
hand holes, ball answer, left hander: Bob, The surface contains the reactive resin material that provides much of the value of the surface. Some is gone from your play (minimal) some is gone from your wife s (more, but mostly, in another area of the ball). The ball has absorbed dirt and oil...

Bowling: Returning To Bowling, left hander, performance shoes
left hander, performance shoes, ball path: Jim, The stability as you deliver the ball is always important. An entry level performance shoe in leather should last you more than a decade. They re very comfortable too. An entry level ball could be urethane or reactive resin urethane, drilled fairly...

Bowling: How to read drill layouts, etc.., slow motion playback, playback capabilities
slow motion playback, playback capabilities, reactive ball: I will answer the easy part first :) For the ball reaction you are looking for, I would suggest the Rapid Fire Pearl. For the definitions, go to the Storm website and look under the training topic. There is list of terms and definitions. If you have...

Bowling: Side-Revolutions on hook ball, hook ball, bowling balls
hook ball, bowling balls, bowling center: Bob, It s crazy that some store sold you a top line ball. It s like giving a little kid a Maserati to learn to drive in. Your supposition is correct. A poorly thrown ball (weak release) will go longer down the lane and potentially hook enough to strike,...

Bowling: school, high school bowling
high school bowling: Tyler, Do you have any high school bowling in your area? At your school or a school nearby? Some programs have experienced bowling coaches, some have teachers who oversee but don t have much (coaching or bowling) experience. Where are you from? High school...

Bowling: speed, Adjustments
Adjustments: Efrain, Ball speed is a great asset. Adjusting speed is a way to adjust to changing lane conditions. But, the highly practiced professionals use whatever options they have. Some try physical adjustments, some change balls, some use hand position adjustments,...

Bowling: How to stop spinning the ball and raise my track ?, finger grip, hand position
finger grip, hand position, foul line: Clinton, Don t try SO HARD. You want so badly to hook it you deliver the ball very late. If you do not have a fit issue (hand flat of the ball, no need to grip AT ALL), hold the ball in your setup, palm up, thumb at 12 oclock (up). Go to 3-4 feet from...

Bowling: Targeting in Bowling, targeting
targeting: Nelson, If your starting on 20 (middle dot) and looking at 5, but sliding at 20, middle of your chest to your shoulder (middle of the arm) would need to be 15 inches wide to be lined up right. Are you a former NFL Lineman? Same set-up, look at 10 (second...

Bowling: Temperature, worst case scenario, bowling ball
worst case scenario, bowling ball, question thanks: Cracking is the worst case scenario. Even when the ball starts to warm up, the different parts of the ball have different warm up times. Plus, when the coverstock is cold, it is more brittle. I have never tested to see how long it takes the ball to warm...

Bowling: Over Thrower, surface adjustment
surface adjustment: David, The surface on the Venom is (one of) the smoothest in the industry, AND it s polished. How did you end up with the Venom, with your ball speed? Talk to your pro shop guy about testing out some surface adjustments. You ll need a lane with some oil...

Bowling: Thumb clearing the ball, thumb hole, hole chip
thumb hole, hole chip, redone: What was your pitch before? Although it seems to be the right thing to do is to add reverse and left pitch to get out of the ball cleaner, it might actually be causing you to grip the ball more, thus causing you to hang up in it. If you can just slug the...

Bowling: Thumb Holes, thumb thumb, ovals
thumb thumb, ovals, slugs: Ron, Got to assume the thumb sleeves are keeping you more secure (are they tapers or ovals?). When you use slugs your thumbs are either tighter (leading to the soreness) or your gripping and they hang (also more friction). I d suggest a larger initial...

Bowling: timing approach, ball speed, step approach
ball speed, step approach, medium speed: A five step approach will give you more momentum and that should help with some ball speed. The best way to increase ball speed is to increase the length of your swing. You can accomplish that by pushing the ball up slightly and let it drop into your swing....

Bowling: upgrading old bowling ball, drill specs, old bowling
drill specs, old bowling, thumb hole: Joe, Would a stronger version of her Ultimate work? Get another Ultimate and have it drilled for her track (Full Roller). A stronger core drilled properly, will give her more reaction. The Twisted Fury Solid would give a similar look with it s dull surface...

Bowling: wrist locked/ finger rotation, bowling ball, middle finger
bowling ball, middle finger, sure what your question: Efrain, Not sure what your question is here. I don t understand turning or bracking wridt and rotate with both middle finger towards up palm . Please spell check your questions. If you lock your wrist, you will tighten muscles in your wrist and arm. In...

Bowling: adjusting, alcohol works, rubbing alcohol
alcohol works, rubbing alcohol, speed lane: Tom, First wipe the ball off every shot. Minimizes the oil build up. Clean the ball after every session (rubbing alcohol works). Cleaning maintains the new surface. Sand the ball whenever you see the track area of the ball begin to smooth out or shine...

Bowling: arm away from body at release point/ increasing revs/ how do you know if ur thum is coming out first, bowling arm, arm swing
bowling arm, arm swing, bowling ball: Lets fix one maybe 2 things first. Then the others may fix them selves. To fix a bad swing you need to line(square) up to your target.What ever your aiming at, you need to point your toes right at it.Stand relaxed.From your shoulder, your arm falls...
