WI State Tournament
« on: February 06, 2013, 11:36:40 PM »
Thought I'd start a new thread rather than post on last years.
I go to State on the weekend of March 9th and 10th.
Looking to see what's working, what's not.
What kind of surfaces are working at each place.
Let's help eachother out and put up some Good Scores!

I know one place is Wood and the other is Synthetic.
Using a modified version of Blue #1 as the pattern.

Good luck Scott.
I only watched a little bit of action at Karl Ray a few weekends ago.
That house will make or break an all events score.

Just from looking at Team Red Carpets scores will indicate that.
free agency it is until i get a better offer.   LMAO

Watched some action there a few weekends ago.

Plus just bowled a trios event there on Super Bowl sunday.

Clearing the heads will be the key.

The leaders in doubles scratch and handicap in division 1 have some suspect entering aves.
entering ave of 204 and then shoots 2187 scratch AE, with hand = 2316
that 204 entering ave seems quite low for a guy who has multiple honor scores and a close to 200 ave in a sport league

Dave we all jump to that conclusion when we see stuff like that. I am not involved in that tourney at all, i live in WA. But to make a point, i average 210 now on a house shot, shot a few 300's, 1 800 and i shot 2200 scratch in the WA state tourney a few years ago when i was only averaging 205. People get hot or they match up to the shot with the right equipment.

My point is if you think it is a problem i think you would have to look at the body of work. Does this happen every year? Or is this a one time deal.

I was told this year's pattern is 43' in length, a 5:1 ratio, and slightly under 23mL in volume.  Which makes it a foot longer and a little flatter with more volume than last year's, which was supposed to be Blue #1 and I thought it played like that pattern.  So more volume should be nice.  You should be able to build the pattern a little easier than last year which at 19.8mL was just not enough oil for that length of shot in my opinion.  Hope this helps.

My experience.  Bowled last weekend Feb 16/17.

593 team slow start.  bass is correct whoever does well at team house/Karl Ray will do well overall.  3266 w/hdcp should allow us to cash compared to last year and I see it at about the same scoring pace as Mountain was last year. 612 doubles.  672 singles.  Ledgeview should be easy for most....scores are up at overall in minors from last year.    I'd guess that you can use a very strong ball w/surface at Ledgeview and play a slight swing shot.  Key is too get it a heavy enough roll on backend without over reaction hence slight surface works better.  Those that tried straighter left a lot of 10's early on unless they were no handers.

All in all I scored better on last years State tourney but it seemed Weston was tougher than this years minors at Ledgeview at least for me.  Lots of higher scores on my shift in minors.

Good luck!
Scott

You'll know exactly what pattern will be put
out,ie Red, White, Blue1,2,3, but it seems like
it depends on who you are. I've asked for that
info to be posted on the website to no avail.

So how are people doing?
How are the approaches?

I think I have my 4 ball arsenal set:
Storm Vivid @ 4000
Hy-Road @ OOB (my most predictable ball)
Roto-Grip Rising Star
Motiv Recon Silver (great on Wood lanes)

Those should cover me, my only question is my Frantic @ 2000, it's a ball for me that has a very nice move in the backend when I need it.

I emailed Don at the WI State office, he said a modified version of Blue #1, but of course that can play differently at different places. So far I think I'm happy with what I'm going to be taking.

Bowling this weekend and thinking about equipment.

I currently have been using a brand new Berserk and Frantic for league.  I will also be bringing my Reign, but am concerned about my last slot.  I have a virtual gravity that kind of died on my over the last 2 years.  I am thinking about refinishing it, sanding it, and polishing it using the Storm Factory machine.

Any tips?  I just want to have something strong in case I need it.

Not knowing ur stats, I'd leave some surface on the VG, somewhere between 2000-4000 should be good. If your other balls are at OOB, then you'll have a pretty good lineup going in.

Berserk @ 4000 (OOB)
Frantic @ 1500 grit polished (OOB)
Reign @ 1500 grit polished (OOB)
Virtual Gravity @ 2000-4000

Just my thoughts, good luck and let us know how you do!

Rev rate around 400 and speed between 15-17.  I come up the back of the ball pretty heavily, especially on oil, so the VG always seems to roll out for me.  That is the reason I'm thinking about 1500 - light polish.  I probably won't end up using it, but I though it would be nice to have something really aggressive, but without the Chris Barnes roll-out special.

But we will see how I feel when I get to the lanes tonight.  I will let you know how I do!

Any last minute advice?
