We had a question form a viewer that we wanted to answer:

Q) Some people a adamant about have side weight, or finger/thumb weight in their layouts. Does this really change bowling ball reaction?

A) This is a great question. We are still bound to bowling ball layouts based on the USBC rules for static imbalances. Basically, there can be no more than one ounce in any direction from the midpoint of the grip. Any studies have shown that static imbalances do not really affect bowling ball reaction. Watch this episode to hear us discuss it.

  3. Gotta love those guys who shoot 560 with 260 the doubles game and 20 sticks! Rotten sandbaggers…

    I have a question: do you guys feel that not using finger grips is a good way do reduce the amount of revs you can produce? I bowl for college and my coach was telling me that it would be helpful for me to reduce the amount of revs I generate and I've been exploring some pretty general options to help myself out in that category. I have a mid to low 500 rev rate and throw the ball between 17 and 19 mph generally. If you guys have any tips for taking some hand out of the ball, I would greatly appreciate it! And I love the show!
