When the conditions are right, I love my Spit Fire. It works great on wood lanes in particular (got me a 299 on a broken down, confusing, weird shot on wood lanes once!). However, I have trouble with it when there's a little less friction in general, particularly on synthetic lanes. I had a really bad over/under look last night, so I tried to pipe it up the dry boards with the Spit Fire the last game to go around it. Left an 8-10. Started moving around, still had trouble carrying the corners. Moved in deeper and try to slow hook it a little. Left another 8-10. Ugh. One of those nights I guess.
