Having a good solid physical game, teamed with a strong mental game to adjust to lane conditions will replace most of your balls.   If you don't have the skills, all the balls you can drill won't get you there.  All the money you have in balls could have gone a long way in coaching.   Ball and drills won't replace good instruction and proper practise.   I used to love guys like you when I was in the business.

FYI you might want to know a little bit about the person you start to talk down to them.  I do get lessons from a very reputable coach.  I feel my physical game is up to par was just sending out a feeler about what everyone is taking to vegas this year.  So thanks for your input.

I'm heading out in late April, and haven't really figured out what I'm bringing yet, it's too early. I always take a plastic ball, a dull solid, something flippy, and a ball that "keeps me in play."

National is hit or miss for me. I've gone 15 times, and bowled really well 5 times, totally stunk about 4 times, and the other ones were just "so so" with a lousy couple games.

Knowing the shot before hand didn't really help me much, but I still wish they informed us of at least the lengths of the patterns. Ultimately, I think it's frame-of-mind that leads you to success. I read online somewhere, forgive me I don't know where, that the patterns were analyzed for the last 10 National tournaments, and they didn't really vary a whole lot as far as length and volume, just different surfaces and type of oil.

Good luck out there, you know they'll be tough.

Use a LOT (500) of surface in D/S and beat them up to the right.

Sometimes the truth is hard to accept.  Spent years drilling for guys who were looking for a miracle in a ball.  Most did not want to accept they were deficient in the skills necessary to be a winner.  Most of you guys are doomed to be the pro shop's wet dream.

Pro-shop owners(current and former) sure talk a lot of shit about their customers. This attitude is obvious to those customers in case you didn't know.

Yes, the truth can be difficult.....


Unfortunately, there are too many old time drillers who still live their glory days of the past. They live in a fantasy world of Rubber and Urethane, and never understood why even with great bowler skill, reactive resin changed all the rules. You can see the bitterness of not understanding why time has passed them by.
 
Try taking just one ball to Nationals or any PBA event and show how you'll dominate with nothing more than your superior skill set. I'd buy a ticket to watch that disaster.

Wow! I'm not sure why you chose to pick on Northface!! I was in Vegas for one of the Nationals events gone past, and watched this dude bowl! I didn't realize who it was at the time, but after I got home, got on Ball Reviews and talked about my experiences at South Point....I put two and two together and realized that the guy I was admiring was HIM!! That Dude can bowl!! You are clearly barking up the wrong tree!! If you were referring to the original poster......then I humbly apologize for my comments!
