No i did not ask what was scoring.Just wanted a new bag. Just because one person scores big with a ball and drill would not work for everyone. I just wanted a new bag because the bottom of my bag was ripping. As i was changing the balls over to new bag they wanted to check out my laypouts. Went in to spend $150 and they wanted to sell me over $350 of new balls.

Agreed, you need to know as much about a bowlers stats as possible in order to properly address a layout recommendation. Very important to have this info, however, after watching bowlers of ALL STYLES throw on the shot(s) for 3 months, an educated ball driller should have a fairly good idea of what layouts & surfaces should work for a given "style" of bowler. I always like to watch a person throw a few shots before I make any recommendations. Not always do-able but that is the procedure I like to follow.
My question is, why did they want to look at your ball layouts when you came in to purchase a bag? Did you ask them what was working at Nationals? Very common question I ask when I go to Nationals (3 more wks) of all the booths, knowing full well they are going to recommend a layout for one of the balls they are selling. I understand why they do that so between their info, watching bowlers similar to my style, and using past experience I make up my own mind on what I need to throw.
As you saw, Motiv is sharing a booth w/another company so they may have not been as familiar w/Motiv equipment as a true MOTIV-ite !!
