Talk Bowling – Episode #122

Talk Bowling is proud to be bringing you the latest information from the bowling industry, bowling tips and updates from the world’s largest bowling website, bowlingball.com.

Question from YouTube:

Q – I have an Ebonite Cyclone (my first ball) with a standard layout for length (since I didn’t have a ball to measure my PAP at the time). Later I got an IQ Tour Fusion and yesterday got an Optimus both with the same layout. (drilled for angular back end, I believe 3 3/8th PIN to PAP). I was previously dismayed that my Cyclone and IQ tour Fusion seemed to perform exactly the same despite the difference in cost. Now I’m really confused because the Optimus also gives me the same as the other two. Is this Normal? I can take the Fusion and find a nice line to the pocket, and the Optimus seems to be able to play that same line. Playing deeper in the Oil or more of the Track area doesn’t seem to matter. A few times I’ve even gotten Turkey’s Alternating Balls on the same line to the pocket.

Question from YouTube:

Q – Can a two-hander roll the inside part of the ball like pros?
