Well, for some. 🙂
I bowled 198, 196, 200 for 594. I went 3-0 in a best of 5 series.
I threw the Storm Natural all night which just kept me in play.
I made two mistakes.
1. A few times, I lost the ball to the 3 board which left me washouts. Probably about 3 or 4 for the night 🙁 I think that’s the risk that comes with using Urethane. However, the once or twice I pulled it to 8 at the breakpoint, I got a strike and an 8 pin. Everyone else missing there was leaving nasty splits or crossing over. I’m not sure which was better, washouts or other nasty splits but I stuck with my gameplan.
2. Silly as it sounds, I didn’t wipe off my ball with a microfiber towel. As soon as I did, the ball started to bite again. You have to remember how much oil sits on the cover of Urethane balls and it appears that PBA patterns are more sensitive than THS to the oil on the cover. Wipe your equipment down!
Anyway, it was a decent night for the first PBAx night. Next week, I may try another piece of equipment that will be a bit more aggressive than the Natural and see if I can increase carry.
