    The pro at one of my bowling houses says once that effective date happens (no balance hole allowed) he will watch you to bowl against him with the balance hole but at the end of the night set your score to zero... I'm not sure he can do that but he has alot of pull at that house, might be you should prevent them from using.

    Anyway, my first thought was he might just get his nose punched for the zero score trick... I'm ordering popcorn that day!

    A member of the opposing team (the Pro in this case) can't just give you a zero for using a ball that is out of specification. He has to file a complaint with the league (in writing) and they will decide if the games are forfeit (A lot would hinge on whether the player had prior knowledge of the rule).

    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 am going to wait until next year to get any balls that I have remaining in my arsenal with flare holes plugged up. It is highly likely that by next year, any balls that I do still have will not be in regular use any way.

    2016/17 Book Average=221, 2017/18 Composite Average=223
    Equipment in the bag - Storm Crux Prime, Storm Physix, Roto Grip Idol, Roto Grip Idol Pearl, Roto Grip Hyper Cell Fused, Storm Sure Lock, Storm Drive, Roto Grip Winner Solid, Roto Grip Haywire, Storm Fever Pitch, Roto Grip Red ball spare.

    Rev Rate 400. Speed 18 at heads, 16.5-17 at pins. Axis tilt 10, Axis Rotation 55. PAP 5 5/8 x 5/8 up

    It doesn't matter if you have prior knowledge of the rule. You can't use a ball with a balance hole as of 08/01/2020. The pro is right, let them use it for a game and call them out. Zero for the game. I like this idea.

    If the league is a sanctioned league then they have to do something. I'm not sure if post game zero score is the kindest of approaches, I tend to prefer stopping them before they bowl even if that leaves them without equipment.

    Probably true but bowlers will manipulate the rule to their advantage 90% of the time and would be well within the rules to do so
