That would be 5 balls for the entire competition.

The next step up from your Scout would be either a Brunswick Rhino or Storm Tropical. If you wanted to go up to mid-performance, it would be the Brunswick Edge Solid or Edge Pearl as well as the Storm Match Pearl or Match Solid.

Any of these will give you higher performance and with a core that will help you with pin carry. I personally think the Rhino would be a great option.

You explained why holding it higher with a gravity swing will increase ball speed.

For people who don't use this method, holding the ball lower will result in more ball speed because your swing is shorter. Since the swing is shorter, your feet have to move faster to keep up with the swing. This results in more momentum and faster ball speed. Holding the ball higher results in a longer swing, so your feet have to stay slow to keep from getting ahead of the swing. Thus, lower ball speed.

Peter,

If you suitcase the ball, you're always going to be at a disadvantage on heavier/longer oil patterns. In a suitcase release, you've got a lot of axis rotation which makes the ball push longer before hooking. The key to controlling this is to stay behind the ball and create forward roll.

As for a ball to throw on these conditions when you suitcase, you want a ball that's designed to hook early with a matte finish. Something with a low RG. Some good choices: Storm Alpha Crux, Roto Grip No Rules, Hammer Gauntlet, Columbia Tyrant, Brunswick Absolute Nirvana, DV8 Pitbull

Here are some guidelines for maintaining a dull ball:

1. Clean every 3 games.
2. Sand ball back to original grit every 9-12 games.
3. Full resurface every 60-80 games.
4. Oil extraction every 60-80 games.

Going slow isn't necessarily a bad thing, but being an aimer does have its downside. You want to walk fast enough to have a free armswing. If you walk too slow, your armswing has to be muscled in order to keep the ball from getting ahead of your body. You want to have a loose armswing and that will actually make you more accurate than when you are extremely deliberate.
