Hi Joey,
          Just an update as to the challenges @Bowlero for me....Avg. 215(7 games) with the Deranged. Loving the reaction of the ball-straddle 20-up10 @ 12-13 mph...244/268 for the 1st games of the last two weeks..then fall off to 190's-180's for the remaining....not sure i'm adjusting right to keep carry? I did not try switching balls. wanted to see if i could stay with deranged and continue the good first game scores..Hard to teach an "ole dog" new tricks??..i would appreciate any comments/suggestions you might have given the little info i've given you...

Hi Joey,
After struggling for most of the year, you suggested trying the “tri-grip”.  I picked up the Virtual Energy on Tue and used it in league today for the first time.  I shot 256, 230, and 227 for a 713 series.  Thank you for everything you and Dennis do to help keep me in the game.  (See you next week when I pick up my Taboo.)

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!

Boom goes the Dynamite !!!!!!!!!!

So far the Tri Grip measuring system has been met with unparalleled success. I've drilled it for about 130 bowlers at present count with 120 loving it. Some bowlers who LOVE the Tri Grip system:

Ron Vokes, Rob Lange, Frank Nameth, Greg Baumgardt, Phil Brylow, Joey Cozza, Mike Griggs, to name just a few...

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

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.



Here's the real answer about reverse oil. Reverse oil controls the amount of oil in the front part of the lane. Forward oil controls the shape of the pattern at the end of the pattern. The more reverse oil in relation to the forward oil, the longer the pattern last and the smaller the transitions.

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....
