Ball down from Wreck-em?
« on: December 11, 2017, 12:25:55 PM »
Drilled a Wreck-em this week, and I like the ball, but for me, on our house shot, it’s really a lot of ball.

 I don’t throw real hard, 15mph on the monitor is fast for me. The ball is drilled pin up, about 4 in from pap, cg swung a tad positive, with an x-hole straight over in a neutral position. Strongish drill for me usually.  Pin up 4 X 3 (close)

 Started out on the fresh, feet on 30 playing third arrow. Ball was pure money, gave a little hold AND a little out, and I shot good.

 Second game, things changed a bit. Ball was earlier. Went X X 9/ NOSE7 X NOSE8 before I figured out the move. Made 203, but just barely.

 Moved my feet 4 deeper, moved my target 3-4 feet down, which put me over 17 at the arrows. Kept the speed up, and made 226.

 Decent set, but would’ve LOVED to be able to stay a bit further out. Is that just not possible in today’s game?

Brilliance realizes it has limits, ignorance does not.

Another good reason to bowl doubles.  Shot holds up longer.  Otherwise transition is the name of the game is what everyone says.

If you are wanting to stay with RG I think the Ink would be the ball for this. I will let you know 1st of the yr as I plan on getting the Ink as well :)

Match-up Hybrid, or Hustle Ink should fit the bill.
