I am getting a little (ok more than a little) frustrated by being told I ROLL too good a ball.  I am accurate, and consistent.  I hammer the pocket and get 9 while other guys THROW a ball down the lane and the pins fly everywhere.  I roll 14 pounders and just can't carry on any amount of oil.  Give me a fried lane and I can strike at will.  I usually bowl the best after the other guys are missing the pocket.

I just bought a 15 pound Uproar and am going after a Wreck-it to see if I can carry with the extra pound.  I'm not supposed to be rolling that heavy a ball, but if I can carry I won't be rolling it as much.  (How's that for rationalizing my frustration?)

Anyone else find themselves in that boat?

I think the Uproar is made for dry lanes if it's the ball
I'm thinking of. Is it the ball that Belmo used and then
everyone bought it. I hated mine

I had an Uproar before and it was my benchmark ball.  It is intended for medium oil conditions.  I don't watch bowling live, I watch it on Youtube and if it has Belmo or Pete I don't watch them.  I just bought the Wreck-it this morning.

I  thought it was a skid flip ball,their usually for dry lanes. I remember when
it came out on the show it had a hook rating of 4. I had one and didn't
care for it

I use Bowlingball.com as my reference on ball specs.  I know there are other sources but I trust their evaluation of balls.

Medium light is what it says. To me that's dry lanes

I don't like the fresh.  It's too hard for me with slow speed and few rotations.  If I stiff arm it I can get to the pocket but my carry is poor.  I can go to a house after the leagues are done, or the next morning and post high scores.  My best scores are almost always the last game.  I like Dixie or Ken Bowl in the afternoon but both put down too much oil for the first game to amount to anything.  Usually I will tell the other team the first two games were just practice and we are starting the three game match with the third game.  I'll let you fill in the blank as to what they think of that.
