Ball Recommendations for Oily Lanes (League)
« on: November 28, 2009, 09:03:11 AM »
hi this is my first post here.. some background on bowling is september i started with a 13lb. house ball.. throwing 110's-120's mostly with the occasional 160 and i even threw 180. after that i decided i would get a new ball, learn to hook so i could hit the pocket and gain more consistency.. i also used to throw a backup ball (not on purpose) my wrist would naturally go the other way so the guys at the proshop recommended that i go with the brunswick power groove, so i did and they taught me how to hook.

avg in league is about 150 after 15 games. high game league is 185, subbing i bowled a 210 3rd game one night.. which leads me to my question.. i find that this ball does amazing on medium/dry lanes.. my high with it just open bowling is a 237. however, i struggle to do well in league and have bowled as low as a 112. usually my scores will start low and get better as the night wears on because the lanes get dry.

what would you all recommend for an intermediate bowler looking to get more bite on those heavily oiled patterns? i find that when the ball isnt hooking, i'll move around too much.. 6 boards to the right, 6 to the left.. and basically just can't gain momentum or stay consistent..

thank you.

Isn't the Diamond back a UI with a different core (rocket core)?

u do need a ball above your power groove, but u will also need coaching

Actually, the Diamondback is an Ultimate Inferno with a different cover and a different core.  

From what I've heard, the flavor of Activator on the D-Back is stronger than the one that was used for the Ultimate (and the remake).
