    Progress suspended....

    201/221/204 = 626. Figured out the Helios was just not going to work by the 3rd frame. Weird, for a ball that hooks, it just didn't seem to want to finish from, oh, anywhere. Stuck with the old-*** Nano the rest of the night. Not a bad shot, just some bad shot-making. 4 opens on the night, all through-the-nose splits. I've got to figure out what's holding me back from the kind of performance I had last year, because it's getting frustrating. On the upside, team took all 7, from the first place team. Average back down to 211.

    Where do you usually use your Helios? I won mine so we decided to try a short pin but it hasn't worked out well. My guy is a Brunswick guy so when he went short pin he went with Mo's minimal hook (90 x 2.375 x 45). I leave alot of corner pins and pretty much never use it. Been thinking about re-drilling it to something more usable. My question is I have an Altered Reality at 2000 (45 x 3.5 x 30) and a Zen Soul at 3000 (60 x 4.5 x 40). Not sure if there would be too much overlap with the Helios or if it might make sense?

    Helios was an absolute monster when I pulled it out last year, but that has not been the case so far this year. Seems to start well, but has issues end of 2nd/start of 3rd. We do have an inordinate amount of plastic thrown in our league, so that is part of the problem. It does seem like the shot has been changed this year, either by our house, or the USBC. I went toe-to-toe with one guy last year for high average, and we were both 220+. This year, we're both struggling to stay above 210.

    Standard ring finger pin up drill. Can't find my drill sheet for numbers. 10 pins have been an issue this year with that ball. I left a dozen or so in one night a few weeks back, but this could also be the house as well, as one of my teammates threw 8 in row 2 weeks ago. We also have a couple of new people doing lane maintenance now, so who knows what's going on. Our house is also very "airy", so in a few weeks, the Helios could be my best friend....

    A blind dog finds a bone....

    229/248/235 = 712. All Helios, all night. First game had some struggles, until me and my doubles partner finally figured out we've been trying to get our equipment to do what we want, instead of doing what it wants to do. Made good shots the first game, but a flat pocket hit in the 9th, and the attached 7-10 split, convinced me to move 2 boards right. Never moved again the rest of the night. 29 clean frames. 3 or 4 weeks ago I shot 29 clean, and left with a 646. Strikes maketh the man,,,,,

    Average pops to 214.

    Weird night.

    245/226/196 = 667. Started off the night in the same exact spot I was last week (only 2 pairs over), and that worked well, until it didn't. I have never seen a pair break down like they did tonight. By the 3rd game, it was a feat just to get the ball to the head pin. Shots you would think were right there, and next thing you're leaving a 2 pin spare of some sort. There was a spot that would kick, but it seemed unreachable. Another 29-clean night, though (whiffed a 7-pin). Average sneaks up 1 to 215.

    Was out of town a few days. Just getting here today.

    158/232/212 = 602. Again, didn't recognize the Helios wasn't the answer until it was too late to save the first game. 4 opens, all splits. Ball just seemed like it didn't want to go. Pulled out ol' reliable (Nano), and went from there. I need to figure out why the ball works well one week, and not the next. Seems like it's burning up, but you wouldn't know that from practice. Seeing as all of my solid surface balls are polished, and this one isn't, I may give that a go. We have a tournament today at a house I've never shot at, so I didn't want to go radical this minute.

    Average drops back to 213.

    Milwaukee Senior/Non-senior tournament. Better luck next year....

    Trying to make ball changes in a house you have no familiarity with is not fun. Me? 189/194/208. Antonio? 223/160/160. Line was tight all day, which was to be expected. It's an old house, built in 1960, with 8 synthetic/wood lanes. 4 people per lane. No excuses, we just weren't on it today. Both of us shuffled through every bit of equipment we brought with, but when you don't have your control, you're just not going anywhere. We'll try again next year.

    Tuesdays scores. Nothing to write home about.

    191/209/213 = 613. Never got comfortable in my own shoes Tuesday. 3 pocket 7-10's, a 2-8-10, a Greek church, and a whiffed 7 pin, besides just not striking, killed the night. I did polish the Helios, which definitely helped the ball read better down lane, but if you don't hit your marks, that makes no difference. I need to find a way to get out of my own way. Average stays at 213.
