Thank you for taking the time to give me your recommendations.
in my quest to understand the nuances of the dual angle system I have a follow-up question if you don't mind.
I completely understand the pin-pap distances you suggest (shorter distances in Asym's and longer in Sym's help to retain tilt / rotation, correct?). What I can't get my head around are the ratio's for the midlane / continuation scenario's. I thought higher ratio's retain tilt and lower burn it off. Us tilt-challenged types want to retain it, don't we?
Oh, and one last thing. I should have been more specific regarding fine tuning my request to lane conditions. Of the (4) layouts you were kind enough to suggest, which match up to the following conditions:
A - fresh house shot
B - broken down house shot
C - fresh sport (ex: dead man's curve)
D - broken down sport
Thanks again for taking the time to answer my first post. It's frustrating to bowl really well and not know why everything's working, and even worse when bowling terrible and not knowing why nothing's working.
Hi chuck, youre very welcome sorry i am just reading this now.... Anyways to better answer your questions, id like to know what ball or balls u are looking at thus far.... If you want to tackle all 4 of those conditions with one ball, its gonna be hard, doable but hard. My best advise to you would be to get one symmetrical mainly for both house shots you listed and a strong assymetric for the sport shot.
Again, im no Justin Wi, so please dont take this as solid advise im just trying to do this to help better myself as well....
For fresh house shot id go with the rage
35x5.25"x60 p3 hole 2-2.5" down VAL for midlane and continuation
For broken down house if your good with adjusting you should be okay with this ball here as well
However since u wanted a layout for all 4 conditions, on the broken down id go with a pin up rage to help get the ball through the burnt heads... Something like this
For fresh sport shot (im not familiar with the length or units on dead mans curve but im assuming its long and flat) id go with a strong asymetric like the 2cruel or original raptor p7 if u can find one still
40x3"x45 p3-p3.5 with alot of surface to help produce a little burn spot and area.
Yes its gonna burn tilt and rotation a little quicker than a higher ratio layout but i feel like you wont have to worry about flagging the head pin as much or giving up the 3pin
And lastly for burnt up sport, use a raptor attack or 2cruel for a little more natural length, and use the long and strong asym layout i gave you.
55/60x2.25"x30 p2 only if needed. This should help provide more skid through the heads and you will be able to get the ball easily enough to the burn spot you already created, while preventing tilt and rotation from burning up before the last transition.
Just my take on this.... Again id appreciate to hear from the real vets here to see what may be right or wrong with my thought process.
