Axis Rotation:30

Speed dominant

Lane Condition:

Anywhere from 39'-45' THS, a few sport patterns during the few tournaments I bowl.

Balls desired: Sigma line (original or hybrid)..open to suggestions as motiv is the first brand I'm trying outside of the Ebo. Int'l brands.

Looking forward to hearing/using your suggestion JunstinWi!

33 degrees is a ton of tilt.

What are your grip specs? We might be able to dial out some of the tilt with some pitch adjustments.

Thanks, was hoping to get a performance fit anyways. Going off a really old drill sheet ill do my best making out the chicken scratch.

About me: Old baseball injury from throwing curveballs siince I was 4, so I have no finger pressure in my middle finger,tons of flexibility but no pressure. Skin is very slippery and my thumb is longer than 2 3/8.

Specs:

MF Span:4 13/16
RF Span: 5 1/16

MF Pitch:1/2 forward, 1/4 left
RF Pitch:1/2 forward, 5/8 right

Thumb Pitch:1/4 forward,1/8 left.

Bridge:1/4

No grips. Little to no bevel. (Preferably none, but current driller insists on bevel)

Vise It: 61/64 slug ovaled @ 70•

PAP: 4 1/4 left, 1/4 down.

BTW, what are the disadvantages of too much tilt?? Is it sacrficing backend?? Currently nonthing I have turns the corner from inside..Thanks in advance!!

Tilt will created length, and in extreme cases impede the ability of the ball to transition properly. Basically it makes the first transition take too long before it starts, which makes the ball hit in the hook phase. This can be accounted for though.


First thing I would consider doing is taking the MF to 0 forward/reverse.

As far as equipment, the Sigma Hybrid, Raptor, or Cruel would be your best bet.

Depends on how much your tilt changes. Is there any way to pitch plug the middle finger and recheck your tilt?

No update? I am curious as well. My dad has similar specs and suffers with the ball being in the hook phase when it hits the pins.

My wife is rev challenged, 150 avg bowler. She just got the Raptor P7 and that thing is a beast for her. She has a 45x25 on it and it has given her several 200+ games in the last few weeks.
