Junior Gold Equipment+Tips
on: July 11, 2018, 02:38:29 PM
Well, I'm heading out to Junior Gold tomorrow and I am in a tough spot, I can only bring seven balls due to travel limitations, and I'm coming to you all for advice. My stats are 350 RPM, at 17.5 Mph off my hand. My options are Roto Grip Idol, Storm Phaze II, Storm Son!Q, Storm Hy-Road, Storm Pitch Black, Roto Grip Hustle INK, Storm Ride, and Storm X-Factor Triple XXXTreme.
And if you guys had any tips, that would be greatly appreciated.
Arsenal: Roto Grip Idol, Storm Phaze II, Storm Son!Q, Storm Hy-Road, Storm Ride, Roto Grip Hustle INK, Storm Pitch Black
Considering: Storm Match Up Black Pearl, Storm !Q Tour, Roto Grip Halo, Roto Grip Winner, Roto Grip All Out Show Off

That's a pretty nice bag for a junior bowler.  Hard to go wrong with any 7 of those.  I wouldn't sweat it too much and go with what you are most comfortable with as Doom says.

Less is more especially with forum posts.

I just looked up the equipment rules and Junior Gold only allows 5 balls to be checked in and no substitutions. No sense in taking an extra 2 bowling balls if you don't have to.

5 ball rule doesn't go into effect until after the practice sessions being held today and tomorrow at all of the centers.

Take some time and watch the videos of previous years to get a an idea what has been used for the different patterns and reference the patterns while watching.

I will say, from all my watching the last couple years, you want urethane for sure.

For an actual suggestion, Id leave the XXX and whatever you feel overlaps the closest and/or use least. Phase II for an actual suggestion.
