Upped it to 3oz across the board.


What changes are going to be made to static weight restrictions? Once you plug the hole it's about a 90% chance that thing is going to be out of spec on the dodo.

Or did the squad of Chad Murphy yes-men not think that through yet?

They didn't touch differential, still .060.  Lol I don't know where people are getting stuff that wasn't there, or aren't getting stuff that's explicitly stated.  Heckin confused. 

I’m assuming that .054 Differential is also in effect as I understood.... Someone clarify this please......

Starting in Jan. 2020 they will allow up to 3 oz of static imbalance.

The weight hole restriction doesn't go into effect until Aug. 2020.

So if you plug just the weight hole you will most likely be legal.

All this hand wringing over nothing.

And 95% of the stuff that has weight holes you won't be using in 2 years.

So what you can't use liquid cleaners during competition. I know of very few that use cleaners during competition. Clean your ball before or after.

The oil absorbtion rule will have more effect than anything and old balls have been grandfathered in.

So many complain for the USBC to do something and then they do they all cry foul.

This is an opportunity for somebody to go all Martin Shkreli on us, buy the companies that manufacturer plug materials and rings, and increase the cost of plugging a ball to $100! :o

"You mean I can have 3oz side and 3oz thumb now?" .....old guys coming out of retirement :-D

I can't wait until the marketing paradigm shift to "The optimal static weight ratio".

Gary Dickinson will have to learn a new way to shoot his 10-pins! (As will anyone else who only uses the one-finger technique.)

3 oz total right? So you could have 1.5oz side and 1.5oz finger? etc.?
Not 3oz side & 3oz Thumb?

With Brunswick leading that shift......after years of telling the masses, well, you know......

You can have 3 oz of side weights (Negative or Positive).

You can have 3 oz of finger or thumb.
