Battle...Why does this ball hit so hard ?
« on: August 30, 2006, 06:13:43 PM »
I am just in awe over this ball ! It already got my name on the Roto-Grip honor score list..but it just keeps going !

Tonight in league I shot 270-278-203(last game I made a ball change)

Guy on the next pair (All he throws in the Battle, his only ball he brings to league !) is avg 238 with it !...He's got a couple & 300's, 299's, 780's & 790's on it He shot 781 tonight as a matter of fact...

What exactly makes this ball roll so hard ?

I can't beleive how hard it hits and the super strong roll it has...

You guys really made a gem with this ball, seriously

Alright, I agree on the Battle and even more so on the Saga...but such a glowing thread followed by the sig "nothing but Dyno-Thane"...waddup with that?

i had mine polished with a light coat just to see what it would do,and on a lighter shot it wasnt bad ,lotta room for error and carry for ever ,shot the front nine with it and got wide the first shot in the tenth for 276.Went to league afterwards and didnt use it .After leagues we got the same pair and i shot 230 with it the shot was still very tight. A guy showed me a trick, I am sure its nothing new to most of you,but he took a peice of sand paper ,I use a green scratch pad ,and about 2 or 3 inches above your fingers in your track rub a small circle just to scuff that spot up and it will make the ball flip hard.This is what i did before i shot the 276,works like a charm.

I thought it is illegal to just change part of the surface of a ball. Am I correct? I also have a Battle---I have not yet used it in league---not enough  oil at the end of last year. I practiced whith  the ball and it was great when I moved in.

Battle...Why does this ball hit so hard ?

Eaaaaasy.. Because Hank is the man...

I was in Las Vegas in June/July for some IBPSIA-courses and BowlExpo.. Had an RS-1 drilled up.. And that thing was butter.. Lanes were stupid at the 2 centers i bowled in.. But that ball just smacked the pins like it was a chick-fight..

Last 3 weeks I've punched holes in some more Roto Grip balls...:

Oracle Vision
Epic
RS-X
RS-P
Ultra Sonic
Super Sonic

I've got a Battle coming in monday.. And hopefully soon a Saga and a Horizon..

So far i'm more than pleased with RG's balls..

...my understanding is that PBA players can change the surface(I believe many sand later flare lines(longer in front more backend))
USBC league bowlers must have uniform surface.

LL,

Most regional players I know in the midwest do not do this as they use some of their equipment in regular USBC competition and don't want to go back and forth or forget and use it.

LL,

The rules are exactly as you state them.  USBC ONLY allows uniform surface.  PBA's rules allow surface adjustments non-uniform.
