I signed up to be on a church bowling league. Starts tonight.  Bowled years ago in college but not since, sold all my bowling balls when I hurt my finger, now getting back into it I'm pricing them and good grief they are much higher now.  I think I paid like $60 for a nice ball back in 03' and now the same model'ish is over $100. 

Got me curious, how many bowlers we have amoung us.

I once bowled a 285... luckiest game I ever rolled and have bowled seldom since.  I certainly have not improved...

I love bowling.  Not very good at it, and after a couple games, my shoulder does some funny things.  Have to find some time to try it again.

I used to bowl quite often. Hurt my back and quit about a year ago or more and never really got back into it. I still have all of my stuff and go occasionally. I used to bowl consistently over 200. If you have any questions about balls I don't know a ton but I can definitely help some.

I've been reading alot on the net about them.  Appears that the best one to get for my hook that I throw is a reactive resin ball.  Been looking at them to figure out more on the weights inside them to figure out what I need.  Gonna go visit with the pro today at lunch to talk about them.

Yeah, I couldn't let it go untouched on the know how you have with the balls. You handled it with the soft touch and care you handle most things with. I hate you hurt your back and had to give up slinging the balls down the wood. Most of the time its wrist problem that happen when slinging the balls at the pin's. Me, I gave it a shot once. I'm not much of a ball slinger. I tended to hit where I wasn't aiming and the balls were always so slippery and I couldn't get a firm grip on them. I have heard of people using baby powder to help get a better grip but it gets pasty on the inside after a few games.

lol  I'm not.  I like when our threads go off on a tanget, keeps more people envolved.  You can continue to talk about balls all you want, we won't judge (anymore than we already have)Big Grin

Like G I gave up bowling when I hurt my hands. I have gotten pretty good with Wii bowling and thought about giving it a try again, but I would need a ball with just 2 finger holes.

Don't leave or the thread will go to garbage. You have more knowledge about balls than anyone else on the forum. You could have some very "stimulating input" into this conversation. Wink
