Hi , I am looking for help with a bowling ball to fit my game . I am beginner bowler but throw a big hook currently use a Columbia 300 deep freeze and it just hooks a little too much for me . In order to hit the pocket I have to throw right at gutter and prefer not too . Just can't seem to get less hook on it with the way I throw ball so wondering if there is a ball out there that will still hook but just less then the current ball I use

I enjoy using the Hyroad X.  I do not know how that compares w/ a Columbia Deep Freeze.

Before you try a new ball, experiment with moving around on the lane to see if you can get a better ball reaction, and take advantage of the heavier oil tiward the middle of the lane

I have tried different things I can't get a consistent ball with the reactive just moves too much thinking a urethane cover would be better

Also, now that fall is coming up, pro shops usually have demo days where you can try out a wide variety of bowling balls.  Each ball company offers them.  That way you can experiment with the latest equipment and get a feel for what's out there.  Check with your local pro shop to see if they have any coming up.

It'll definitely be more controllable than resin though it won't hook quite as much overall.  Check out the "new" black Hammer urethane...it's the best one on the market IMHO.

I believe the lanes I bowl at are pretty dry and that is why it hooks way too much I am more of a 5 pin bowler pretty solid at 10 pin for not bowling it much plan on joining my first league since i was a teenager I bowled a 263 when i was 16 first time in league . Just I can't really throw a straight ball at all nor do I want too but the reactive is just too much spin. I have been checking out the hammer I do like that one and might go with that if I can sell my current ball which has been used maybe 10 times.
