    Lol for me it's always the middle game that drops. ****** is right though, good series.

    So I'm curious. I started bowling on wooden lanes, and I love them. It took a lot of adjusting for me to even bowl decently on synthetic (all lanes that royal pin owns are synthetic...at least most are). What is everyone's preference? I still would take wooden lanes over synthetics any day.

    Been trying out a ball I won (Brunswick C(System)4.5) I usually throw Global so this is a pretty big change. So far I really like the ball I have thrown 9 games and 8 have been 200+ with my high being a 268. I might have to see what else Brunswick has to offer for medium oiled lanes.

    I'm a big fan of the raw hammer series. I haven't invested into to many of their new stuff, but I consistantly use my hammer and doom, last league I finished with a 204 average. I have it drilled to go long and snap hard, so I have to keep speed up on it, and keep the rev rate high, but that's fine with me.

    I also use a Storm special agent a TON. It's drilling the same way, but toned down a little so I can ease of the speed some. A few days ago I shot a 269 with it

    ^^Those special agents just don't stop hooking. Great Ball.

    My sport league tonight is switching patterns. We are going to the Kegel Sport series Boardwalk pattern. This one is shorter (34ft) and doesn't have much total volume of oil. I think we are going to have to play way outside on this shot so it will be a good change of pace from the long pattern we have been bowling on. I'll post my scores tomorrow

    I know this may be a little heretical, but you could always switch to a plastic ball. Usually on light oil patterns, I'll either switch to a smoother surfaced ball, or my plastic. The ball still moves in the basic same pattern since the oil dries quickly, and let's face it, a plastic ball will dry the lanes out, and then you'll be the only person able to shoot anything worth it without throwing the ball at 800 mph.

    10 bucks. Not a huge deal. It's actually the cheapest league at the alley. And I get a ball at the end of it which will be cool. I need a 2nd ball.

    A plastic ball doesn't dry the lane out since it doesn't soak up oil. Throwing a plastic ball wouldn't only create carrydown since all it does is push oil down the lane. It would be useless then since it wouldn't hook. I wouldn't throw one to begin with because it won't carry.

    I shot a 580 something. like 185, 244, 169. I decided to miss a bunch of spares the last game so that's fun. Also, I don't really have a dry lane ball yet. Not many people in the league were much over 600, so not terrible but I know I should be shooting better. There's always next week and I will likely have another ball for lighter oil by then since my playmaker is a bit too strong to throw all 3 games.

    No kidding.

    The ball league I was in during the summer was still 20 bucks as 10 covered linage. I don't know how they can give Dan a ball and league for only 10 bucks a week.

    You're right, a plastic ball won't soak up MUCH oil, but the rev rate of a plastic ball will burn up the oil just as most other light stock balls would. Everyone else would be using a ball that would burn up more and more oil, while you're left with a ball that WOULD hook, and they're left with having to adjust on nearly every shot.

    The league is NFL related so I will be getting a Steelers ball. I'm not sure what brand but when I find out I will tell you. I am guessing the brand would be Brunswick but I dunno. I wish it was 3 games instead but oh well.
