Get ready to tune your bowling ball to the lane condition with Abralon Pads!
Fall bowling leagues are more than half over, are you still a little short of the goals you set for yourself this year?
As some of you are aware just hitting the pocket alone won’t always do the job. Those pesky corner pins can turn a great game into a mediocre game. Entry angle and surface are everything in today’s game.
Angle is important and surface can help create angle. As little as 30-60 seconds on a spinner will change that surface/angle and can improve your carry by 20 to 40%. A little more surface can increase the angle and a little less will decrease the angle.
The following paragraph is a true story to illustrate my point about Abralon Pads for Bowling Balls.
True Story # 1 – Abralon Pad Testimonial:
I was recently practicing at our local bowling center, the house pro and a very good young bowler were watching and kibitzing as I consistently left a 10 pin on about 5 out of every six shots.
The younger bowler finally made a comment on all the 10 pins. I could fix that I said but I am practicing for a smooth consistent arm swing and release so the 10 pin doesn’t matter.
The house pro made that all inclusive negative comment “right”. “Ok” I said, “I’ll show you”.
I went back to the pro shop and hit the ball with a , back on the lanes and left 3 more 10 pins.
Back to the shop and used a , left 3 out of 5 ten pins but all 3 of them wiggled. I commented almost there it wiggled every time. Another “RIGHT”.
This time I used a worn 500 grit probably equal to about a 750 grit. Back on the lanes and threw 7 strikes in a row with the same ball on the same line. The pro walked off in a snit and the younger bowler was in hysterics.
Don’t believe in Abralon pads for bowling balls? Look up the specifications on about a dozen balls most of them and perhaps all of them will represent their surface in terms of Abralon grit. If the ball manufactures use it, then it must be right.
