Hey Folks,

I really don't understand a lot of the terms yet but here's what I think I am...... I'm a straight bowler, probably pretty average with speed etc., and in watching videos I think I'm a stroker.

I'm looking at either a Silver Recon or QZ2 and I want to develop a little hook.

When I go to the pro shop how should I have my ball drilled to go fairly straight(in the direction of the throw) and break towards the end to strike the pocket?

That's the hardest part about a drilling a ball for a beginner bowler. They have no stats to work with such as PAP for starters. As you bowl you will gain consistency in your release and make it possible to get tilt, axis rotation, revs, and speed. All of this info is needed to be able to give a precise drilling based on what you want the ball to do. Generally in your case when I drill a ball for a beginner bowler I go with a leverage or length leverage layout. Some more info may be given by a few more guys on this forum. Justin is really good at what he does so he may have a better idea. Make sure your driller fits the ball correctly, maybe he has a ball in the shop that fits good enough to throw and let him watch you. This will make it easier to put holes in the ball to obtain the reaction you want.

Same as m PM from BBE:

You will probably want to start with a QZ2, as it will handle a bit more oil than the RX1. If you don't know your specs, can your pro shop help you get them?

If not, place the pin over the ring with the CG .75" to the right of the midline(assuming you are right handed). This is a good basic starter drill that will allow you to get some games on your ball and verify an axis point and tilt measurement. It will clear the fronts and provide a nice read on the back. Nothing too crazy that will grow with you.
