Attn doom; Black ops advice.
« on: February 12, 2019, 07:13:28 PM »
Have a faithful black ops drilled weakish, 5 1/2x 5x3. I keep it at 1000 and use it for my heavy oil, volume ball. Had good success with it at nationals, bjís in Syracuse. Well it has a ton of games now. Was thinking of putting it on my spinner and resurfacing it to oob finish and using it for mediums,  and house shot. Want to get a new, fresh black ops (great deals online for black ops around $100). Was thinking of going a little stronger with the drilling, say 4x4x2 with same 1000 surface for heavy oil just like current one. Do you think it will be too strong, I definitely donít want it to puke out. What are your experiences with the ops, break core with strong drillingís for oil? Here are my specs! Pap 5 3/8 over up 7/8. Tilt 16 degrees. Rev rate 320. Ball speed 14 mph. These specs are from the powerhouse bowler Iíd test. Appreciate your global 900 expert opinion.

The black ops rolls best for me with that factory polish knocked off. Iíve used it at 1000 for heavy oil. Ball is so versatile. I think you will love it at 4000. Much smoother than oob.

That's perfectttt. I honestly love R2S cover, and I'm a *huge* fan of the IQ Tour. If the cover is similar, I'm game with a bigger core in a smooth piece. And honestly, Global's pieces that are purple and/or black seem to roll best!

Love my iq tour also. Black ops with surface will be a similar smooth motion to the iq tour, only stronger overall. Least thatís what it is for me, and my game.

I never use any Ops (Break core) without surface. Honestly, I could do a Covert and Black 50*5*65, Covert at 2k, Black at 4k, and a Shadow 40*4*30 oob.

Btw, shadow is the only Ops I'd still to transition fast because urethane.

@Doom, I have a Black Ops that I love drilled at 46*4 1/4*60 and I have a Covert Ops NIB that I was thinking of drilling up. Would you recommend using the same layout or not? If not what would you go with? PAP is 5 1/4 right and 1 1/8 up

I would try 70*5*30 for a different look personally!

What surface do you keep the Black at and what kind of motion are you looking for?

I typically bowl on a house shot in league. My BO has a out of box finish (not sure how to change the surface).

Personally, I like the layout on the Black in the Covert, just keep the Covert at 2000 (see your pro shop for proper cover maintenance) and use it when they're fresh, then step in and use the Black when the Covert starts to leave corners.
