    Yes it is, so many times you bowl a huge game, and a crap series.

    I am impressed that I did it considering we switch lanes after 2 games, going in blind third game made it little tough.

    Maybe your next ball should be the IQ Fusion! If you like your IQ pearl, as I did, the IQ Fusion is the almost the same ball, only on Steroids!!!! I almost ordered one Saturday, but at the ball demo that Storm had here in town, I fell in deep love with the Byte! Picking it up tonight!

    My wife is wanting the IQ Fusion real bad!!!

    I've heard good things.

    I bowl normally on THS, so I figure the Freak'N Frantic and how I've drilled it will be good for dry-medium lanes, my IQ is a champ Medium to medium/heavy and the Vivid is great on heavy patterns.

    I am pretty well set

    I think it is the adrenaline that does it. You get all amped up and then once the game is down you come down off your adrenaline high and it all falls apart. That is why I prefer to bowl my biggest game in the 3rd game. But I see it all the time - huge game in the 1st or 2nd game followed by a sub 200 game.
