Need some help filling out my bag for the open. My current arsenal consists of almost all asymmetrical balls. Give me your thoughts. Thanks

  • Hack's other account. Older wiser quieter one
Considering scores are popping in singles, I'm assuming guys are starting around 7-10 with a ton of surface and hopping inside around game 3. A friend of mine said he had an Awesome look like singles with Quantum Bias after throwing a Ludicrous Solid the first 2 games at 500 grit.

Forest Green would be what I bring as I trust that ball the most on heavy fresh (remake from a few years ago).  I know supposed to answer with some new ball but underrated ball back when it was released imo and glad I grabbed one.

Less is more especially with forum posts.

Id be interested to see what Rash (792), Kurt Pilon (800), and Ryan Muow (802) used to shoot in singles at Nationals this weekend.
It would be interesting to know what they're using to put up scores like that

Firstly, some serious talent.

Looked like they were finishing Singles with some polished weapons in the video I saw. It's been beaten to death over the years, but these guys work together and break 'em down correctly. I'm sure they have some info they gathered prior to bowling as well, but that's just a smidgen of why they post great scores.

Oh for sure! No doubting the talent level. I guess I just thought it would be interesting to know what kind of pieces they were using to give those of us without that kind of talent a little more insight on how to do a little better.

Yeah I know lol. I've struggled the last few Nationals after a few good ones before that. Sometimes I think it's a mindset. Look forward, not back during the rough patches.

The Radical Squatch is a pretty strong symmetrical solid, and I would compliment it with the Radical Intel, a benchmark symmetrical solid. Both would be a great 1-2 punch at nationals. Good luck out there!

From video and talking to a few people I believe Kurt Pilon was throwing a Rhodman Pearl and Ryan Mouw was using a Vapor Zone in singles

To answer the OP,

Web is a little more ball downlane than the Scandal/S. Both are really good but I just threw more strikes with the Web consistently so that's what ill be taking. The Chaos is another 4 more than the Web and a couple feet sooner.

Pilon I believe is on EBI staff and threw the Rhodman Pearl I believe. Great piece especially when you have some not so defined friction as it doesn't touch it and go sideways but still plenty strong to be used on more than a House Shot. It was my favorite piece.

Storm iq tour @ 1000 will be a factor for me. Along with my black ops. Just got some radicals drilled,  I agree, my squatch with a low pin may be in my bag as well,  ball gives me a ton of midlane roll with some surface on it. Got to narrow it down to six. As my two 3 ball rollers fly for free on southwest.

Well I did an EBI demo day this past Sunday and talked to my PSO who also happened to have a Forge that he let me throw. After talking with him and throwing the Forge that's what I went with. Picking it up tonight. Really really liked the way it rolled and it was very continuous. Where I could see several of the other pieces rolling out as the shot started breaking down the Forge never did. It was pretty impressive. Now I just need to make good shots when I get to Vegas in a couple weeks LOL!
