What's in your 6 bag tournament arsenal?
« on: May 23, 2019, 11:54:46 AM »
Was packing my bag last night and trying to decide which 6 to bring to an event.  Synthetic house, modern lane machine with the morning block on the THS and afternoon for 5 games on an unannounced sport pattern.  What would you bring to cover yourself for whatever might be laid down and why?  Here was my bag:

Tenacity Grit - rolly/even to control crisp back ends
Ludicrous Solid - can handle oil but has a but more kick down the lane
Vapor Zone - longer/sharper for when my feet get left
Cutting Edge Hybrid - benchmark, rolly shape
Cutting Edge Solid - cleaner, sharper for burn
Spare - I just feel more confident shooting straight at my spares with plastic

Crux Prime
IQ Tour Nano
IQ Tour Solid
SonIQ
Tank Rampage (urethane)
Plastic spare

Coverstock preparation is key to performance, so I always make surface adjustments to my arsenal prior to tournament play.   I also use a combination of 15lb and 16lb balls in my arsenal to match my style to the lane conditions.
You will not see me on the PBA Tour, but I love the game!!!

In no particular order

Vapor Zone
Fearless
Legion Solid
Kinetic Amethyst
Covert Ops
Blue/Green Boost

I've finally retired my Three Gamebreaker 2s. This is what I'm throwing this summer through the Military Championships in August. By fall, I'm sure that the Vapor, Fearless, and Boost will return for another season. I have 3 NIB Boosts to go through. These balls are rock solid on a drier house shot.

In general, not knowing the pattern, probably these:

Eon Infinite
Eon
After Dark Pearl
Tropical Surge
Fever Pitch
Black Widow Spare

Might swap out AD Pearl or Tropical with another urethane or Covert Tank when it releases. May also include the Space Time Continuum in there, but I think the above list is safe for not knowing the pattern.

I had thought that this was a Brunswick forum?
