    Default Teammate rolled his first ever 300

    Yep. He bought a new DV8 Hitman a few weeks ago and has been struggling with it....until tonight. He has a 198 average this year but he was about 203 before he bought this ball. Last year I think he ended at 209. Game 1 he had a 215. We bowled the best team in the league scratch wise. They have the highest average in the league and they had a guy pre-bowl that had a 259 in game 2 so we knew we had to step it up. Well he rolled a 300. Last game he fell off a little to a 189 so ended with a 704. We lost count but pretty sure he threw 18 in a row in that span. And I ended game 2 with a 4 bagger then started game 3 with a 3 bagger so that was good. Needless to say I think he likes the Hitman now...lol.

    This was the first 300 in our league this year but we usually end up with about 5 or 10 on the year. This is the first time ever I had a teammate roll a 300.

    There were some pretty high scores tonight but then some that really struggled. Quite a few complaints about how dry it was but I didn't notice it (but I target the 5 board). Tonight we had a 300, 290 and 279 and the high series were 769, 755, and 709 (our PSO). My teammate that had the 300 ended with a 704.

    EDIT: his ball is a DV8 Pitbull Bark

    No wonder isn't that ball illegal?

    I wouldn't think so. Our PSO sold it to him and last night when I was in there a guy brought in a used ball to look at and the PSO told him it wasn't legal so I doubt he would have sold an illegal ball.

    I had no doubt that they were legal. Just seeing if anyone is interested anymore.

    lol. the one from last night had something to do with him being a no thumb bowler. he mentioned something about the weight hole in it. the bowler said a guy gave it to him. he did tell him they could fill the hole to be legal.

    he did mention a new Kingpin coming out. when i bought my current kingpin i had went in to talk to him about redrilling a thumbhole in a Storm Sync i had and he found a crack so upsold me on the new kingpin. i love the kingpin so i think he was trying to get me sold on the new one when it comes out....lol

    BTW, my teammate that rolled the 300 last week had a 213, 212, 167 last night. we only needed to win 1 game to clinch the first half championship so after we did that in game 2 we all fell off in game 3.

    here are game 3 scores with averages:
    122 with 191 average
    135 with 197 average
    167 with 198 average
    175 with 197 average
    172 with 176 average (me)

    we lost game 3 by 265 scratch. we were only giving them 3 pins handicap so we were pretty evenly matched...lol. we had a 771 scratch to their 1036 scratch...lol. nobody purposely bowled bad but we kind of used that game as practice to try different lines, speeds, balls, etc
