I return to my argument that this problem has been caused by the super aggressive shells on balls.  I have been a proponent for along time of disallowing resin balls, and requiring that urethane be buffed to 4000.  My argument has never had anything to do with the scoring levels, but rather what the hook in a box shells do to the lane pattern. 

It is ironic that just as technology finally gave us lane machines that could precisely put down oil patterns the way greens keepers mow and water greens, we get balls that blow these patterns up so fast it makes little difference what pattern is put down.

avabob, the pattern goes that fast even if all ten players are playing the same area it still takes incredible shot making to put up a good team set. Just because ten guys have a plan doesn't guarantee huge numbers some if those teams still struggle

If all ten are not in the same area and breaking the pattern down, you may well end up with a tougher shot than it was when you started.

Let it go gentlemen. There will never be agreement on this subject. Whether it's carving a pattern or bowling on a THS, for both it's about making the lane easier. I just hope the so called purists or elitists depending on who's describing them, know that fact. You can't carve and bitch about the THS. You do and you're a hypocrite!!!

I've stated how I feel and what I feel is acceptable when bowling team events.

The "I" in "team".  Lolz   ;D   :P   :-X

I'm drilling an Incinerate with a double thumb layout, and sanding it with a N pad. I really want to play 2nd arrow without worrying about the ball going too long.
