Talk Bowling -- Episode #87Question from Nicco Vicari:Q -- I am looking right now for a ball that can react better on longer lane oils I would also like the ball to have a smoother roll through the front and a strong backend reaction. Is there a ball you can recommend for me? I am a currently holding a 187 average in my Saturday Sport League and about to bowl in a PBA Experience League. I throw the ball around 15-16 mph and i my rev rate is around 325 rpm. Thank you for your time.A -- Nicco you are looking for two different balls. On a longer pattern you would want something that will be steady strong reaction from start to finish. No abrupt change in direction just really strong rolling. In this case I would suggest any of the newer products that offer a duller finish out of the box. Brunswick has the alpha-max, Storm has the Nano and Roto has the Theory. Remember that you should also use a specific layout based on your PAP to lay these balls out for the reaction you want.Your other question was for a ball that was smooth through the heads with a strong backend. You may be able to achieve this with the same products only drilled different and a shinier cover finish. You could also look at balls like the Bank Pearl from 900 Global, the Inifinite Theory from Roto Grip or the Boomerang from Lane #1.Remember on conditions like that it is very tough to have a ball to cover a variety of ball motions and lane conditionsHow to contact usEmail us [email protected] a comment on TalkBowling.comOn Twitter we are @TalkBowlingSponsor: ChampsSports.comDid you know that ChampsSports.com offers you a winning selection in sportswear and shoes from leading brands in the industry.
