Buildig a 6 ball arsenal
« on: January 12, 2019, 04:08:54 PM »
Okay, so if you were to build an 6 ball arsenal today for someone that will cover most conditions, what would you suggest?  Combination of high RG's low RG's, high Diff, low Diff, solid, hybrid, pearl...
It's all about synchronized pin dancing!

Idol
IQ Tour Solid
Marvel Pearl
OG Hy-Road
Hustle Ink
Pitch Black (or perhaps Fever Pitch if hype pans out)

but I like symmetric solids more than most.  If the bowler doesn't have a lot of hand would remove the Pitch Black and put an Crux Prime on top.  This is basically my tournament bag except a Green Quantum for the Idol and Ogre Urethane (spare ball) for the Pitch Black.

Too many variables.  Stroker, Tweener, Cranker, two-hander?  Most conditions means: most house patterns or most sport patterns?  High track, low track?  Ball speed ( a difference of 6 mph will eliminate some balls from one bowler's arsenal to another's)?  Ball surface?  Etc.

A ball arsenal that will work well for one bowler may not for another because of all the variables.

For us that sometimes fly internationally this is often the situation. 6 balls and you have no idea what you are going into.

My bag now consists of
sure lock
daredevil trick
hyper cell fused
crow - urethane
plastic spare ball
hyroad nano/hyroad/code red depending of how I anticipate how burnt up I think the lanes will get.

contemplating an idol as a trick replacement as its gettin up there in games and an idol pearl to add in the rotation as the last spot in the bag.

I agree, that's why I prefaced my response as if I started over for myself
