Two Best House Shot Killers
« on: June 27, 2018, 12:58:02 PM »
For testing purposes, what are the two best current (or recently discontinued  i.e. No Rules Pearl, Wreck Em, Dare Devil Trick, etc.) house shot balls from Storm/Roto in which one is more so for more oil and the other for less?

Hy-Road and Hy-Road Pearl.  Honestly going to get many different answers but that is mine.

Towards the end of fall/winter/spring season, I was using the Hyper Cell Fused and Hustle INK as a 1-2 combo for house shots.

If it's a *true* THS, stand left, unlimited recovery to the right, 5-8 boards of hold when you miss left then I would throw Soniq/INK for the higher rev guy, Idol/Hyroad for the lower rev guy.

Right handed tweeners, just give up, you'll be shooting 4 pins, 10 pins, and 2 pins for every minor mistake at your release :D

Best ball all depends on your style.  A ball that opens the lane up the most isn't necessarily the highest scoring option.  Probably a dozen or more balls that will match up with anyone as well as another. 

Remember the biggest influence on ball reaction is not the surface or core, but your release.

Literally any ball manufactured by any company drilled has the potential to be a house shot killer on the correct surface/pattern for the right bowler.

Hy-Road and Hy-Road Pearl.  Honestly going to get many different answers but that is mine.
Understood and expected.

You throw the Hy-Road when there is a good amount of volume?

Thank you for the true educational answer. I was more so looking to engage with some users and develop some community feedback on what they happen to throw given the circumstances. I am not looking to make a decision based on anyone elses answers. More of a popularity check.

For your more typical easy house shot my vote would be for a Son!Q and Wreck-Em combo. Could replace the latter with an INK if you think the Wreck-Em is too strong.

TL;DR yes.  Sorry had long meandering post wanted to clean up.  I mostly play straight up the boards so I don't need the ball to cover a lot of boards.  In my first shift doubles league it was the only ball I used all three games most of the season.

Why'd go and have to bring reality into this picture? We were just talking balls. (:) )

Sigh ... You are so right. (no smiley face)
