For starters, I'm basically new to bowling so bare with me if you're going to help.
I used to be in a league when I was 17 and had an average of 170. It is now 8 years later and I'm going to with a Primal Scream but I have no idea what I'm doing as far as a technical aspect is concerned.
I roll 15 mph. I will be getting it 15lb. I roll at a house that is med-heavy oil, going out to 42'. I roll out to the 6th board in. I am a lefty. I don't know my rotations or any other specs.
my questions are:
Should I order it with a pin placement or leave it stock? Same with top weight? Does drilling compensate for these as long as acceptable standards are met?
It has a 5" flare. I want this to have a huge back end in heavier oil. How does flare play into this with a ball with such a big back end?
would you recommend ordering from an online source if my shop doesn't carry it, or have the ball ordered through the shop so the drilling / plugs are cheaper? I found the scream online for 137, without shipping or drilling.
Thanks everyone in advance!
