stopncrank... I'm in your corner, buddy. I have thrown mostly Storm equipment since I started bowling seriously and I think I've converted.
The ball that did it for me? COMPLETE CHAOS!
I got it used from a friend of a friend for only $25 and it's the best ball I've ever thrown. I've sold my X-Factor, and I'm going to bench my Xtreme (my Screamin' Banshee will stay in the bag). I just purchased an EPX T1, a Backyard Bully, and a Power Drive. They should be arriving either Monday or Tuesday (October 10 or 11). If they are anything like the Complete Chaos... Then I will convert COMPLETELY to Columbia. I'll keep you posted.
Some people say that Bowling is a lot like Golf.
It's fickle and precise, not to mention that the equipment is especially important.
I've been known to break golf clubs and throw them in lakes to take out my frustration...
Do you think I'd get in trouble if I chucked my X-Factor through the pro shop window?
