My name is Chris Lohrke and last night I shot my first 300 game with a 709 series at Classic Lanes in Oak Creek. I did it with the Storm Skyrocket that I bought from you last year. The ball has done wonders for my game and I can't thank you guys enough! I'll definitely be back for future purchases. 

 
Thank You 
 
Chris 

 

Joey,

My 300 game last night kind of sums up your comments on the home page of the site.  I really clawed my way through all aspects of my game before I found what I needed for this honor score.
We were on lanes 15 & 16 last night at Classic Lanes Oak Creek.  On Lane 15,  I was pretty much dialed in from the start (once I got deep enough) using my Motiv Forza Redline. Standing on 32 throwing to 18 at the arrows swinging it out to 7 with my normal speed. Striking 75% of the time the first 2 games.  Lane 16 was my problem child, at least for the first 2 games.  I could not get the ball to hold pocket.  Kept leaving washouts or buckets (when it didn't turn the corner)  or splits when it did.  Resulting in quite a few opens.  I kept fighting those 2 games changing angle, speed, and bowling balls, to find something consistant.  Finally the 9th frame of game 2 (out of all other options),  I took my DV8 Brutal Nightmare and decided to try playing the outside part of the lane (feet on 17 throwing 8 at arrows breakpoint at 4) with 3 mph faster speed,  and got a strike.  Well this proved to be the right place to be as game 3 showed.  So not only was I playing the lanes with 2 different bowling balls,  the part of the lane played was totally different, as well as speed.  By far this was my most exciting 300, because of all the changes through the night to find something, and concentration level to play each lane different.

Thanks for everything,

Congrats to Ronnie Russell who just fired 300 on the PBA telecast which aired December 28

on ESPN TV. Ronnie beat PBA great Sean Rash and JR Raymond in the semi final match. DJ Archer later won his first PBA title by defeating Russell 241 to 217. DJ used a Storm Iq Nano while Russell used a Motiv Forza.

Hi Joey,

I know you have an honor roll on your website. Recently my son Brandon Robinson shot a 752 series. This was his first 700 series and his games were 255-249-248 and was bowled at Jay's in Mukwonago, He used a Storm Freakin Frantic!

 

Thanks, Ken Robinson

Bowling is easy just like shooting pool is easy. Bowling well is not easy similarly to shooting pool well! It takes hard work, patience and knowledge. We help educate you along the way to becoming a better bowler. Stop in and learn and maybe even buy something, lol.

 

 

 

Answer to question:

Obviously both the amount and where a ball hooks play an important part to match up best and have great pin carry. But according to both Chris Barnes and Norm Duke: where a ball hooks front to back is far more important for optimal pin carry! Use the correct surface texture to find the pocket  on a given lane condition. Then use the appropriate layout to maximize pin carry. This can often be an educated guess, but most top level players feel pins positioned below the fingers match up best on fresh patterns when a smoother more predictable motion is needed. On later transition and drier patterns, top players generally use higher positioned pin location to quicken the balls reaction off the drier boards. Hope this helps.

Why make BPS YOUR bowling pro shop

   2. we stock the area's largest selection of balls, bags, shoes and accessories. plus we offer lower pricing on our bags (so you don't feel the need to buy online!) we even have some used balls for those on a budget.

   3. we have the area's best Junior Adjustment ball program! for a $10 fee, you receive 2 years of free hole enlargements and 50% off all plugging and redrilling. this is valid only for young ones aged 18 or less.  

   4. we use on the most advanced machinery to insure the highest quality of workmanship! we utilize the area's only Laser surface texture scanner, the Haus ball refinishing machine, the Ovalmatic precision ball drilling press and the Storm surface factory for your sanding and polishing needs. we just rock!!

 

Milwaukee's ONLY pro shop offering Bill Hall's revolutionary new drilling technique called Tri Grip. This new system allows the hand to rest more comfortably on the ball and also reduces grip pressure. It takes into account each person's hand structure and creates offsets on both the thumb and fingers. Many who've tried it say they can also keep their hand behind the ball better and increase their rev rates. Bring in an old ball for plugging and try it out and see if it can help improve your game!

 

 

Joey is now a member of the IAB, the International Art of Bowling. This consortium conducts clinics and has its own online forum for members only. Here Joey, Diandra Asbaty, Bill Spigner and Jason Belmonte all help bowlers learn more about their individual games and bowling in general. It's a great way to learn quickly and improve faster from some of the brightest minds in bowling today! Check it out at www.iabowling.com

 

what's more important? how much a ball hooks right to left or where it hooks front to back?

go to bottom of page for answer

 

 

 

There are 3 phases of ball motion, the skid phase, then the hook phase and finally the roll phase. The first and second transitions is what we call the points which separates these phases. The skid and roll phases are linear in nature which means linear equations can be used to model the ball motion. The hook phase is modeled by a quadratic equation. The vertex of that parabolic curve coincides with the breakpoint. It occurs somewhere between the first and second transition.
