At 54, he remains the biggest personality in the sport his family has dominated for decades. Meet Pete Weber, the brightest star bowling has ever known.

Thought it was a WRW or Duke piece with a headline like that.  Pete's good no doubt.  He wrestled a lot of personal demons over the years.  Not my favorite bowler to root for, but can't deny he was making waves when that urethane tech came out and he could hook a lane!

Pete was able to overcome it and I think became better than ever.  I think it significantly helped WRW, Jr.

Remember though, WRW was Play of the Year in 1986, he was just as good with a urethane ball as anybody!

I do agree, when reactive came out...he dominated!! -- he won 7 titles in 1993 and made a ton of TV shows, mostly with a red Crush/R from Ebonite. He did have a throwback in there, when he won the 1993 Paula Carter Homestead Classic with an 80+hardness Ebonite Maxim plastic ball!
