Do you really know your RPM number?
« on: July 22, 2008, 02:17:27 AM »
I am posting this here as all to often I see people throwing a number out at a point of reference for soliciting help. For those that have posted a RPM number, is it official or unofficial. I know my official CATS number, that's why I am curious.

I think my last CATS session had me at 330-340 and before that I was checked at around 420, I'm inclined to believe the lesser one, especially if blockhater's numbers are only around 450...
Not measured mine by video, but will do on Sunday I think

WOW Rock 150 is a big difference!! 600 is in the range of Robert Smith, Osku and Jason.... You must really get a handful if thats an accurate rev rate!

What is it with CATS? I've heard numbers for some players that seem very low and others that seem to be very high, I would love to know the calculations used and why the calibrations can vary so much.

AngloBowler - I guess from you saying that you know me??

blockhater, I wouldn't say we're fast friends, but we've had some interesting bowling conversations on msn, Andrew (Want)
