I really like the way Ebonite has done these videos.Unedited shots with commentary from the bowler.Ronnie sure makes that ball create some area.

He seemed to get a little winded throwing that game!  Kind of startling.

He made the ball look good, which is what the video is intended to do.  It wouldn't have been posted had he shot 175.

Considering he was the only bowler on the lane, he was adjusting quickly.  I can only imagine the drastic moves that would be needed during a 3 game set with 9 other bowlers.  These mid-performance balls are becoming a bit much anymore.  I suppose that is what the customers are demanding, but still...

I think this wasn't the only video he did that day. Looking at the Matrix video, he looks to be wearing the same clothes, so both of these could have been shot the same day.

That would make sense, especially taking the lane condition into consideration. While he did mention that this was THS, what we don't know is if this, as well as the Matrix video, were on the fresh. Judging from how deep he got with that, probably not.

So with this being a full game, and we can easily see there are no edits between shots, if he rolled two straight games that quickly, I could see why he would be a bit winded..

BL.

My 2 cents.  He is a pro and a little young to be winded.  Would probably consider some cardio if I made my living with my body as it can't hurt and might come in handy.  Also I appreciate an unedited video and all but this guy certainly does not throw the ball like I do (which is true of majority of western videos).  Give me the 70 yo Asian guy video so I can say well I can at least get it to do this even if my ball speed is a bit higher.  All that said the ball itself looks great.

It seems to me that if a staffer post on here about a ball or does a video it is one complaint after another, its like there isn't any way to please you guys. I think the way Ebonite is doing these videos is great, none on the other companies that I know of do a full unedited game. Just to set the record straight, I am not an Ebonite guy, don't have any of their equipment but I do appreciate their dedication to doing a full game video, just my two cents.

I really enjoy these videos and wish that they did more of them across all of the Hopkinsville brands.

I am glad these videos are produced and posted.  However I watch them as entertainment while I work out and that's about it.  Most videos make every ball produced look like a must have ball.  There is no perfect ball reaction video, although there are a couple of video posters doing some really good, objective videos.

It isn't unreasonable for people to make comments about videos.  If there were no comments then there would be no conversation.

Videos are nice but what is the length and volume of the house shot. In the Tulsa area every freaking house is 37 or 38 feet and not much oil.

>The highest pinfall in tenpin bowling in one hour by an individual is 2,708 and was achieved by Adam Barta (USA) in Wickliffe, Ohio, USA, on 15 February 2015.

>Of the 291 balls thrown during the attempt, 163 were strikes.

Now this takes cardio and Adam is older than Ronnie.  Granted both could smoke me with a house ball though tired or not but I don't make my living with my body.  He still throws a good game even winded but those dudes imo shouldn't get gassed very easy.  Its still a physical exercise and endurance in mind and body with the extended blocks they throw has to count for something at least at times.  As we used to say long ago in rugby, fatigue makes cowards of us all.  Sure he would point and say scoreboard (career earnings) though.

You are probably right.  Still good video overall.
