    lol. yeah. I start getting a little frustrated but then laugh it off. I knew it would take time and I can't expect to pick up where I left off so I am being patient. But with the balls I have been using I might as well be beating my head against the wall. That still won't fix my mechanics but at least it will eliminate one variable. The rest will just take some time and practice. Plan to have my average up to 200 by the end of this season.

    I somewhat disagree, if your grip isn't right then your mechanics will suffer in some way. Amazing how the little things make big difference positive or negative. With your determination alone I have no doubt that you can reach your goal.

    Wouldn't surprise me if it is affecting me. We will see. Hope you are right.

    Knew I had to do something. Either get an old one redrilled or get a new one. My plan was to get my Absolut Curve redrilled but not knowing anything about it decided to start fresh.

    There's a saying "You can't out bowl a bad fit" If you don't have a properly fitted ball, you'll never have a clean consistent release. I think you'll be pretty happy with the new ball once you get it.

    Well got the new ball tonight. Threw 5 practice frames before leagues started. All 5 were pretty good pocket hits but the first 2 left splits, the next 3 were strikes. Ball fit good and rolled good. Hit the pocket almost every shot all night except the few where I screwed up. Lanes were very dry. Started out standing with my left foot on the 3rd dot from left and throwing between 1st and 2nd arrows (lefty). About 1/2 way through the first game it got too dry so moved to 2nd arrow and moved my feet right. Kept leaving 7 pins so moved out to the first arrow and still leaving 7's so moved back to 2nd arrow and adjusted as needed. Both teams were complaining about how dry the lanes were and we are all leaving alot of 7's and 10's and a bunch of splits across both teams.

    1st game: 173 (4 strikes, 3 spares, 4 opens)

    2nd game: 183 (5 strikes, 3 spares, 3 opens)

    3rd game: 153 (3 strikes, 3 strikes, 5 opens)

    Series: 509

    Overall average: 165.53

    Cannot use this ball for 7's. I was able to pick it up twice but had to hang it on the edge of the gutter 1/2 way down. Had no oil track on the ball all night. Once I get my spare game back I will be much better off. Need to pick up a spare ball and another ball for very dry lanes like tonight.
