    Thumbs up Colored Oil?

    Do the pros who are competing see the color? or is it just a camera filter thing for TV viewers?

    Slower ball speed with dominate revs, prefer strait at the pocket but deep is fine too
    In my bag... Roto Grip Idol Pearl, Storm IQ Tour Emerald, 900 Global White Hot Badger, Storm Match Up Hybrid, Storm Tropical Surge Hybrid, and Storm Tropical Breeze Pearl

    Another stupid Tom Clark idea.

    The idea is to let the viewers see the changes in the oil so that they (you) can understand what is going on. It's a great idea that helps the understanding of the sport. Oh, by the way, the pros don't need to see the oil... they see the ball reaction and know what's going on.

    I really, really want to see this at local centers. But then they’d actually have to oil consistently.

    They do oil consistently. The lanes (topography) are not consistent. Once you can get past the idea that everything is about the oil, you'll be a much better bowler.

    Ignoring the cost aspect, the flood of complaints with stained bowling balls would be insane.

    I wish the current ball companies would tell the PBA to knock it off. It ruins the appearance of their bowling balls on TV.

    This is a valid point.
