    Default Hello from Pittsburgh

    Hello. New member and returning bowler. Bowled for about 20 years until an elbow injury forced me to hang it up. Threw all of my equipment away in 2002 then a few weeks ago decided to try it again. Bowled a few games here and there through the years just for fun. Bowled last week on my best friends team as a fill in (we had always bowled on the same team). Got a text tonight that a guy on the team quit and was asked if I wanted to be full time so looks like I really need to step it up. Last ball I bought was a Brunswick Cobalt Rhino around 1990. Things were pretty simple back then. Never heard of PAP or axis or any of that stuff. Using borrowed equipment for now until I decide on a ball but just so far behind now my head is spinning.

    Welcome to the boards just do some research and you'll
    find out quite a bit about bowling balls on here and maybe
    that will help you out some on deciding what ball to get.
