I have been bowling in challenge/sport leagues for the last 20 years exclusively. I like the competition, the pace of play and the overall vibe of the league. The league is split in half with a different pattern each half. We have a few retired PBA members, 2 Vegas eliminator champs and one ABC Masters champ in the league. I have averaged 20X over the past decade and find myself being able to somewhat compete with the best in the area. Honestly 9 out of 10 times they will beat me but I bowl good enough to keep it interesting. Most patterns we bowl on require equipment to regulate backend reaction. Only the best can play big angles and most of us play tighter lines, especially on the fresh.
I have had very little exposure, until recently, to a house "wall" condition. I find myself confused by the over/under condition. If I move in, I seem to 10 pin and sometimes hit light, if i move closer to the dirt, the ball just flys off the spot. I am using an iQ Tour solid at 2000 abralon and a Match solid at 2000 abralon.
The adjustment I think I need to make is the opposite of what I have been dealing with in my leagues. It almost seems I need a big core/cover hook monster ball and play more in the middle and play MORE angle thru the front. Before I throw down $200 + on an experiment, I'd like some opinions.
Am I on the right track?
