dry heads, no backend
« on: April 14, 2007, 02:33:35 AM »
looking for a little help here.  i noticed that roto has a nice lineup of balls for drier conditions.  i bowl in a house with older synthetics second shift.  very little to no oil in the heads.  first shift is junior adult league with varied skill bowlers throwing who knows what everywhere, so the back end is inconsistent at best.  have a pearl sonic x, it gets through the heads just fine, but does not finish.  looking at mercury, neptune, and venus.  what might work for low end tweener, high tilt, low rotation angle, 14-15mph, right handed old man?

hi mark,
you may remember the place, castro village in castro valley.  actually scored well last year with the battle playing very deep.  this year wasn't enough oil on the left side to hold the battle back.  venus is particle pearl that goes longer than most particle pearls.  that sound right?  it was something i was considering at the beginning of the year.

For those conditions.....Saturn or Venus would be my best guesses.....maybe a Saga with some of the polish removed, but the Saturn or Venus would be your best bets. Saturn would handle the backend well, but might have problems with the dry heads. Venus would handle the dry heads well, and I think would be overall the best choice.

ok, ordered venus, 2-3 pin, 2-3 top.  my pap is 4 3/8 i believe.  as stated before, speed is 14-15 at the pin deck, around 30 axis rotation.  thinking pin down under ring, 4X4.  does this sound reasonable for this condition?
