Invasion: Yet another drilling question
« on: February 07, 2010, 08:50:21 AM »
I am a 15-16mph tweener, revs about 300.  My natural roll is a high track with about a 30* rotation, though I can increase that rotation with more or less ease.  The house I bowl in recently changed its oil pattern to "heighten its wall," so to speak--plenty of oil in the middle and barely 3 units from 10 on out.  Been playing bumper bowling more than I like and getting over/under.  I only like over/under in a shotgun--average taking a beating.

Been considering an Invasion to play a breakpoint at about 5-10 past the "wall."  Originally thought to drill it stacked, or about 4x4x2, but have been reading about Invasions burning up on strong drills.  Is this a reasonable plan?  Should I get a "weaker" ball, such as a VG?  Thanks for any responses.

Sorry for yet another drill question.  I looked for more relevant information in the forum, but didn't find it.

What other balls do you have right now? You could try a virtual energy if you don't already have one and do a 5 x 5 x 2 inch pin buffer to play just inside of the hook spot. I guess you could try an invasion and do at least a 5 x 5 or 4 1/2 x 2 inch pin buffer, but you would have to put some polish on it.

the invasion is going to need alot of oil.. I would suggest a reign of fire.. this is a really good ball, stronger then everyone thinks and it will be $50-$60 cheaper..

I think the ROF is a better option for what your looking to do.
