I too am a senior over 70 decades old & speed of 13mph (a lefty). I have and love my Octane Carbon by Motiv. Also have my Covert Tank (4.5*40) as well but it's a new ball and haven't been on the lanes much in over a year due to Covid-19 shutdown and the such. Hope to be back on soon account had my 2nd inoculation this week.  :D Do like both balls, but haven't thrown the Covert Tank much, so time will tell. My alleys are considered Medium-Medium Heavy, depending which house at. Have my eye on a Purple Tank so who know. Have the want 4 sure.  ::) Good Bowling 2 U. Jim

Jim,

Wow, I knew you were old, but 70 decades?  You were alive when Columbus discovered this continent.  :)

No, Not Columbus. But, we did go to school in the 1940's.

When you refer to your ball speed, Is that at release or downlane at the pins?

Remember the 'Fountain of Youth'? Don't believe everything one hears. Yes, the effects DO wear off with time.  ::)

i have a EBI Warrior supreme and a storm Idol Pro and a EBI Maverick Pearl in 15 lb. I am thinking of going to 14 lb. I was thinking about Motiv Forge fire, Ripcord Flight and a Supra. What do you guys think ?

What have you had the most success with? I think I'd go with an asymm option over the Forge Fire and go with the Jackal Flash or Trident Horizon.

I'd agree on the Supra 100% for someone with slower speed. Ripcord Flight or Venom Shock if you've had success with why lower diff balls in the past

I would try to find a Rogue Assassin if you can. Take a look at the reviews from tamer bowling and bowling this month I still see them for sale on e-bay. You might be able to get a good deal on one. This is a great benchmark ball for med-heavy THS.

Love the Rogue Assassin, most underrated ball they've ever made.  Becoming a big fan of the Fatal Venom as well.
