Help please with building a new arsenal.
« on: November 10, 2019, 01:09:07 PM »
Trying to pick a new good 3 ball arsenal (already have spare ball) to cover most conditions I might run into.  Want to stay in the Hammer, Columbia and Track lines.  My specs. are older bowler, very slow speed (12-13 mph) and probably low revs.  Very accurate on spares.  I can hook the ball fairly well (not a big sweeping hook) and usually play inside over the 3rd and 4th arrow.  Using 14lb. equipment.  Only bowling in one house and the lane conditions vary from the heavy side of medium to the upper levels of dry.  Hardly ever run into extremes on either end. 

I would like to do something before the first of the year and would really appreciate any ideas.   

Thanks in advance.

Here's what I would do if I was going to build an EBI arsenal..

Paradox Red for Heavy to medium heavy oil  Asymmetrical Solid

Ruthless for medium oil symmetrical solid Benchmark

Orange Vibe  light oil  symmetrical solid

I would then add an In2ition to fill my asymmetrical pearl slot for a diffierent shape on medium to medium heavy conditions...

There's a 100% chance I'd have a cherry Vibe in my 3....others here probably are more familiar with the EBI product line across the board but I don't see how every EBI bag wouldn't have a cherry Vibe in it.

Orange Vibe

Ruthless or Kinetic Obsidian

Web, Chaos, Futura, Statement Hybrid, Pink Widow, or Paradox Black. A lot of options at the top end with different motions

Do you think the Chaos, Pink Widow and Paradox Black would be a little too strong for my slower speed?

Depends on your axis tilt and/or rotation and how often you see the heavier side of medium. If you're lower tilt where the ball wants to read earlier, you could probably go with a Ruthless or an Obsidian at 2000 as your strong ball then have a Vibe and Messenger below.

I know a senior bowler with similar ball speed that scored pretty well with the original Paradox. He had higher tilt and rotation so it was a good match when there was more oil

Orange Vibe

I have no idea what my axis tilt or rotation is.  At the present I'm using a Columbia Sideswipe Solid as my oil ball.  Have it at 500/2000.  It does a fairly good job but gives me no miss room at all.  What I would like to do is find a slightly stronger ball that I can swing a little bit more as most of my misses are to the right. 

I like the looks of the Chaos and maybe the Web. (by the way,do you think the Web is as strong as the Chaos?)  The Orange Vibe looks like a good ball for the dry. Do you think it would be close to the Columbia Spoiler Alert?

Thanks a lot for the input.   






Anyway, thanks a lot for the information.
