Thread: fresh surface?

  1. #11

    Default

    I resurface when the the ball starts to get shiny on my dull ball and when my shiny ball gets dull pretty simple. I have a ball spinner so have my way of putting a surface on my ball.

    Now as far as tracking lanes I bowl in one house now 2 times a week and on a THS that covers up a lot of the lane issues but some do have there tendecys. But the thing that changes the lanes the most is who is bowling on the lanes with you. If I got high rev guys on the lanes with me that burns them up a lot quicker. I tend to stand 30-33 to start tarketing 13-16 at the arrows. If there are high reve guys on the pair I migh be in to close standing 40. You have to watch the other bowlers on the pait for the transition and when to move. With covid now we not be bowling much longer. Steve

    You should "touch up" before every session of bowling. Now If your really wanting to match up to that nights conditions, You should bring some pads with you and adjust surfaces during warmup/practice for optimum performance.

    If you watch the Perception vs. Reality videos from Radical, You'll see your balls surface changes after every single game and by the end of the series it's changed a great deal (Especially depending on what the conditions were at the time.).

    Freshened up the Uppercut on the spinner with a new 3000 pad and also hit the Igniter with a new 2000 then a used 2000 since it has not been reacting. It was at 3000 prior to this so looking for a little earlier reaction from it

    Well wish I had left the Igniter alone. Lanes were dry to start and like a desert by 3rd game. Would have been nice to have my Rhino there but it was at home. I moved in to the middle of the lane and finally found oil but I had to be dead on. Miss outside and no return, miss inside and Brooklyn. The Uppercut was good in game 1 but after that I couldn't keep it on the left side of the lane. My accuracy wasn't great but the pin action was great in game 1 and rolled a 253
