Watch me throw the Brunswick C-System Ulti-Max

[bowlingball value=”9659″/]

Based on the [bowlingball value=”9120″/], I was expecting The [bowlingball value=”9659″/] to be a hooking monster. Brunswick was able to make the ulti-max even more angular. I think this was accomplished with a pearlized coverstock that helps the ball easily clear the heads, going longer before making its move towards the pocket.

The ulti-max has a great color combination that makes the bowling ball very appealing as it rolls down the lane.

Find some oil, keep your speed up, and let this bowling ball do all the work for you. Fantastic job Brunswick.

I Don’t Understand the USBC (United States Bowling Congress)

I have been reading some good things in the latest US Bowler magazine about Stu Upson that has taken over at the USBC.  He has made some great changes and the people I know at the USBC seem to like the direction he has gone so far.

That being said.  The sport has been declining in membership for years.  The dues we pay used to get some decent awards, but those seem to keep dwindling.  They spend our money on moving the headquarters to Texas (still not sure if this was good or bad).

There is also a Keynote speaker every year at Bowl Expo.  They seem to get people that aren’t part of the industry, such as Bill Cosby.  Any idea how much of our money goes to paying for these high profile people?  When I go to a tech conference, I want to see the leaders in tech.  When I go to a bowling conference, I want to see the leaders in bowling.

I just heard that for Bowl Expo 2010, they are getting Sarah Palin.  My political beliefs aside, why on Earth would you bring politics into something like this?  You are already going to alienate half of the attendees that don’t like her.   Not to mention that I am sure she doesn’t speak for free or even cheap.  I think that this is a bad move on the part of the USBC.

Just my $0.02

I Shot 647 in my Bowling League Last Night

While this isn’t my high series, it is for AMF Deltona Lanes.

I started the night with my [bowlingball value=”4444″/]. I love the way this ball rolls when 1) I roll it well, and 2) the lanes accept it. It goes so long and because of the solid black, you can see the transition so well. So I shot a 201 first game.

Second game I changed to the [bowlingball value=”6811″/]. With a couple of really bad shots I squeeked out a 195. So going into the third game I was -4.

Note: What do I mean by -4? Most bowlers base scores on a 200 average. So after game one, I was +1. Game two I was -5, so I was averaging -4. So I needed to shoot 204 in the third game to shoot 600. Back to my bowling now…

In the third game a continued to use the [bowlingball value=”6811″/]. I started spare in the first frame, and strike in the second. In the third frame I decided to just throw the bowling ball into the gutter on the first ball. Somehow I rebounded a almost ran the sheet. I struck through the second ball in the tenth. My final score for the third game was 252, giving me a 647 series.

Bowling: First Night of League

I bowl on the Thursday Night Men’s League at AMF Deltona Lanes.  Last night was our first night of league, and I was excited to be back.

Sometimes I wish I was a little more social.  I enjoy hanging out with my team, but I am not outgoing enough to go up to other people and talk to them.  It’s a shame, because I am friendly, and in the right mix, can be very outgoing.

Enough about that.  The first night of bowling itself start out amazing.   I just drilled my new [bowlingball value=”6303″/] and really bowled well with it.  Even though there were a couple of small mistakes I made during drilling, it still reacted fine.
