Fever Pitch
« on: January 03, 2019, 11:37:20 PM »
Showed up on the approved list, and Jesper was seen throwing something of a similar colour, which means it's a domestic release. Anybody have anymore information?
Arsenal: Roto Grip Idol, Storm Phaze II, Storm Son!Q, Storm Hy-Road, Storm Ride, Roto Grip Hustle INK, Storm Pitch Black, Roto Grip Winner
Considering: Storm Match Up Black Pearl, Storm !Q Tour, Storm PhysiX, Storm Hy-Road X

Jesper has made the first 2 shows of the year throwing the Fever Pitch, avg over 240 for both tourneys so its working for him. Jakob avg 245+ the last 2 tourneys leading throwing Purple Urethane go figure. I dont think they would just come out with a ball if they didnt think there was a slot for it. I like throwing urethane occasionally and like the variety that comes out.

 
All the above is largely true, but doesn't change what happened in the finals to both Jesper and Jacob. If you remember, Jacob switched to a resin in a failed attempt to salvage the final match.
 
Urethane is fools gold for most except for the highest rev players. Participate in most PBA events and you'll barely be able to buy a hot dog and a drink if you have a dollar for every bowler throwing Urethane. The exception is really short patterns, but even there, resin dominates.

Best be a lefty as well or else going to have a heck of a time moving in deep with urethane due to transition and still carrying.  Thus why Belmo rocks it with his Hy-Road even with the revs.

Less is more especially with forum posts.

Excellent point. I hate getting into the right/left stuff but the reality is that the left side keeps it's head/mid oil much longer than the right. No matter your revs, you have to stay fairly squared up to use Urethane effectively.
 
Belmo is also an excellent case study. If there is a righty who can take advantage of Urethane, Belmo is the guy. He does use Urethane occasionally, but resin is his go-to choice on most patterns.
