That's a fair point that I thought about. However, we can just make that clear up front. "HEY YOU! Twitter doesn't give us your email address, you should add one.

There are considerations to think about when drilling a bowling ball without a thumb hole though. Make sure your ball driller understands that without the thumb hole, your static imbalances change, and that the layout of the ball will need to change.

We talked about static imbalances on Talk Bowling #42

Definitely drop in weight a full pound to a light 15 lb. ball and you will not lose the core design integrity of the new ball, will still be able to get great pin carry, and will not sacrifice hook potential......more and more bowlers now days use 15 lbs than ever before....using a lighter weight ball will help you not fatigue as quickly in the last game or games you bowl and likely will not result in unwanted ball speed changes. The bowling balls recommended earlier will certainly serve your purposes.

Another tip if you like the 3-6-9 system for shooting at left side spares would be to modify the adjustment to 2-4-6 if you wish not to alter your release. What is fun is to be creative when bowling on new lane conditions, such as in tournaments, and modify your spare adjustment system as needed to be successful on the given oil pattern.  Thanks for the comment, sir.

Thanks for the comment. You may very well be spot-on with your assessment of the article content. We posted articles on occasion first appearing in the US Bowler publication by USBC and borrow (with prior permission, of course) these articles to share with our visitors who may have not had the chance to read the magazines.

As is the case with all article authors, including myself, we sometimes overlook an important fact or misstate something and not edit properly before posting. The important thing is we can share our thoughts and those of outside contributions by magazine writers, as example, to stimulate bowler's thinking and perhaps even help them improve their skills and techniques on the lanes or with the mental game aspects we all encounter in competition.

This is why we welcome your comment and your articulate statement. Thanks again and have a great Holiday season.
