Question from SGT Wes Phelps:
Q - I have always bowled with conventional drilled holes. What are the advantages and disadvantages with the Finger Tips or Conventional. Thanks for your time and attention.
A - First of all I want to say thank you for what you do for our country. I was going to answer this by email, but I wanted to say this, so I waited
As for the answer, you can watch Talk Bowling episode #12 for a more in depth answer. In short, a finger tip grip will allow you hook and control the bowling ball much more easily.
Question from Phong:
Q - Hello Tony and John!
There are a lot of balls out there which are good for dry lanes. I really need a ball for dry lanes that has a good weight block for more carry. Which ball do you guys use for dry lanes and is it better to use urethane for dry lanes instead of reactive resin. Thanks for the tip!!!
A - You are correct, there are many to choose from. This is really going to depend on how dry. If you are talking about a Saturday morning where the lanes were not oiled from Friday's leagues and after the youth group has bowled, then you may want a plastic bowling ball. However, you are probably referring to at least a little oil on the lanes, in which case my go to bowling ball is still a Brunswick Slingshot.
Some other suggestions would be the Storm Polar Ice, Storm Tropical Storm
