This year, at two different bowling centers, myself, and several teammates have had severe problems sticking on the approaches. I have had to use either easyslide or baby powder almost every 2nd or third frame.
A couple teammates swear by these bowling shoe slides that you attach to your shoe. One let me borrow his old one last night. I still stuck a little with it, but it was better than my regular shoes, because at least it was a consistent slide.
I have the expensive SST shoes with interchangeable soles and this year I got a new #8, because the old one had began sticking too much. I also have a #10, but it is way too slick, I nearly fall down before I even get to the foul line. I bought a #9 once, because I had to add something onto an order to get free shipping, so I need to try that, but if that does not work, or even if it does, when it is raining outside, and water is being tracked inside, once a sole gets wet, it will stick, and then if you apply powder, the slide will be inconsistent from frame to frame.
Wouldn't the bowling shoe slide also tend to stick in that situation, or is it immune to wetness in a way that normal bowling shoe soles are not?
I might try buying a brand new one, since they are only about ten bucks, although if that does work, it seems I wasted most of my nearly $200 on the SST shoes. I could have bought cheap shoes and then just used the shoe slide.
What do most bowlers do that have this problem?
