CHOSING THE RIGHT KIND OF BALL




Most bowlers use the wrong ball during league play. If one bowls in an early league, the fronts have oil and back end is fairly dry. Instead of using a highly aggresive ball that hooks out of the house on the back end, use your more mellow ball to start and as the oil carries down, then go the next more aggresive ball, usually toward the end of the first game or the beginning of the second.

If a lot of people are playing the same lines, then by the third game, the fronts have broken down and despite the oil carry down. Either go back to the first ball, or an even more mellow(harder surface) ball to get the ball down the alley, and it will have plenty of energy left to carry the pins. A more aggresive ball will have lost its energy and leave corner pins or worse, the 7-10 split.
