    Default Timmyb's scores

    200/182/192--574. Not the start I was looking for. New house, new league, and was just not prepared for the amount of oil they put down in this league. When I was the only guy on the lane with a polished ball, I knew I was in trouble. Looks like we'll be making a trip to the pro shop..... any suggestions?

    Well first step would be to try some more surface on the ball, if you go to the PSO ask if theres a common surface that he's been putting on the balls there.

    That or get a few abralons and during practice knock the shine off some see how it does.

    Right handed Stroker, high track ,about 13 degree axis tilt. PAP is located 5 9/16” over 1 3/4” up.Speed ave. about 14 mph at the pins. Medium rev’s.High Game 300, High series 798

    I did go that route once with the Nano after running into heavy oil. Seemed like it wanted to burn up. The original surface is 4000 Abralon. Unfortunately, the house I'm at doesn't have a PSO. Most of the guys I've seen bowling there in my league are throwing solid surfaced balls. Very few with pearls. My first thought was also going back to the original surface, but a new ball wouldn't hurt my feelings either....

    You do not want to know my opinion of two-handed bowling....

    Good night. 243/205/215--663. Still no clean game. 3 open night. Any one of those would have gotten me the series win over my man. No missed ten pins, so I've got that going for me, which is nice....

    Whiffed a 7, left the back pin on a bucket, and chopped the 3-6-10.

    Oh, and I did not miss the head pin once......

    Will be going with the Black Widow Dark Legend. Would have it in my bag by now, but the PSO has been out sick for a week.

    Picture of consistency tonight. 161/264/190--615, Couldn't find my *** with both hands in the first game. Went 9/-8X-7/7 in the second. Back to shotgun bowling in the third, but did string 4 to save face. Really could've used the new ball tonight. Not a lot of pop tonight. second game was my first clean game of the year. 205.66 average for the year so far.
