Core vs. No Core
« on: February 01, 2009, 05:02:02 AM »
Debate this please. I want to know others opinions.

I have had the best carry, and the highest average with a Hammer Razyr.  I hit the pocket a lot more because this is a very predictable ball motion for me.

So, why is everyone still telling me I'm going to leave a lot of flat and ringing tens with this ball!  If I lay ANY ball in the pocket at a decent entry angle it is going to strike more times than not, so what is the big deal with these guys hooting and hollering about these super charged cores/covers when you can use just about any type of ball on a THS and have success?

I've even dulled up a Razyr to 1000 matt finish and can play on the sport patters with no issues of the ball getting back to the pocket.  Granted I need to play it more directly, but it still gets there and carries.

So again, what is the big deal with a core or no core?

I have read little of the discussion above....

Note some bowlers today are still striking while providing...almost NO entry angle!

Norm Duke and Walter Ray come to mind.  If I remember right....Norm uses 16 and Walter....I'm not sure!

Many a time I have seen both of them strike on balls thrown with very little side rotation which I swear deflected dramatically yet because of the weight (for Norm anyway) caught an imperceptable piece of the 5 pin!  (I mean if it hit the 5 pin on slo mo review it caught a piece of dust on the pin!)

So much for sharp entry angle being the only factor.....NOT!

Jess....I found the 3.5 board study from Kegel to be fascinating.

The time I was there I was bowling well....(I have only averaged near or above those numbers in a couple of select periods of my life(high dollar tournaments with mucho practice and that was one of them).  I found that I was much more accurate than that from THEIR statistics but would be surprised if I ever could average in those numbers for protracted periods of time!

I presume that many of the 220 average top hat guys with this type of "area" are much bigger handed than the average bear!

On the Core vs Non Core post.....I saw this review and I thought it correctly summed up my Strong low rg Core vs less strong slightly higher RG core comparison I have seen in my own bowling(of course the Razyr I would consider even LESS core!).

This good review
