*~AMF CODE Video from Videoballreviews.com...a new look!*~
« on: February 25, 2008, 09:36:43 AM »
Hi All,

Its been awhile since a new video but im back and proud to present to you The CODE video from AMF.

http://www.videoballreviews.com/code.html

I recently invested in a second camera which allow me to do some pretty cool dual angle shots...let me know what you guys think...feedback has been positive so far!

My Take on the ball:

The Code is the best AMF ball i have throw to date.  Think Radar Lock but stronger and more versatile.  OOB its very clean and angular off the dry.  At 2000 it is VERY strong in the oil and continues nicely.  I dont often compare between companies but since the Cell is such a hot item lately (and rightly so) @ 2000 the Code gives you a VERY similar shape to the cell but just a few boards less overall.

Enjoy and as always comments and questions are welcome!

The good thing around here is that the shots are pretty tight and they oil the crap from 5 to 5, so we actually have some oil.


Chris, which house(s) are you refering to here?

brick,

the houses that oil different for the men's league's than the daytime leagues.  Our Tuesday night league up at Heritage as a ton of oil in the middle and then Boulevard was having a ton of oil in the middle.

Thanks Chris.

I was unaware they were doing that. I just know we have a medium fresh oil shot on Tues. afternoons at Heritage most of the time, but it may be a bit heavier this year though as some of the 200 average bowlers of last year are shooting in the high 180's to low 190's this year. You just have to be careful when shooting cross lane spares like a right hander shooting the 7 pin from the middle of the lane and allowing for hook as some times the oil is heavy enough in that area, that if you are throwing a hook ball at the 7 pin, it might not hook enough.

As for Blvd., I don't know what they are doing there in the day time senior leagues as I haven't bowled there since the winter leagues of 2007 ended other than 2-3 Sunday mornings of which the lanes were pretty much medium oil. A bit dry the last time about 3 months ago.

Chris, I talked to 3 people at Heritage today. The mechanic, the person that operates the lane machine and Kendric the Asst. Mgr and they all say that the oil in the Tues night mens league is no different than the oil in the afternoon senior league. To me, it is medium oil as my balls work great there and they are all in the medium oil class. Could it be the difference in the lines you and I play that makes it seem like more oil to you???? Maybe it is the difference in our speeds as you throw harder than I do.
