Hi there,

Making adjustments on the approach to accommodate overly sticky or slick approaches can be made easier with interchangeable soles and heels, however, there are some other adjustments that can be made to ease your release when the approaches are different from your home center.

Depending on what kind of soles are on your shoes, you may consider using a wire brush if your sole has microfibers on it. By brushing the fibers "up" (brush from the heel UP towards the toe), this will help provide more "brake" on the slick approaches. By brushing the fibers "down" (brush from the toe DOWN towards the heel), this will help provide more "slide" on the tacky approaches. Now, if your shoes have a different material bottom, like leather, you may have to adjust your approach to match the speed needed to feel comfortable for that particular lane. You may need to move forward, backward or to either side of the approach to find the right slide position and adjust your target from there. Taking a "test slide" without holding your ball at any given center you plan on bowling at will help you determine how you need to adjust to stay safe and bowl your best game possible. If all else fails, looking into a pair of bowling shoes with interchangeable soles and heels is highly suggested. (A real game changer!)

Wishing you the very best of luck,

Hi Rob,

In general, yes that is correct. I only say "in general" because it would vary a tad bit depending on the layout selected. But if you tell your PSO that you are looking for a length layout or length with later backend, they can definitely make that work for you with the Hy-Road at the original out of box finish.

Thanks again!

Hi Rob,

I would be happy to offer some advice to you. Both the Hy-Road and the Hy-Road Max are excellent choices for a two-handed bowler. Both bowling balls utilize the same Inverted Fe2 Technology symmetric core. The main difference between these two bowling balls is their coverstocks and finishes, as you mentioned above.

When shopping for a new bowling ball, there are several factors to consider: core, coverstock, finish, and most importantly drilling layout. When looking at the two bowling balls you have selected, we can focus more on the coverstocks. Surface finishes can always be adjusted to help fine-tune ball motion down the line. For instance, if you want the Hy-Road to have a 3000-grit finish, any local pro shop will be able to assist you in doing so.

When reviewing the different coverstocks, it helps to think of the coverstocks as "tires" on a vehicle. Polyester, urethane and most pearl reactive coverstocks will have smaller "pores" (if any) on the surface of the ball, causing it to skid over the oil, much like smooth tires for drifting. Hybrid and solid reactive coverstocks will have larger pores on the surface of the ball, causing it to "bite" through the oil and grab the lanes for traction, much like a snow tire. The Hy-Road has a hybrid reactive cover whereas the Hy-Road Max has a solid reaction. Both will provide a moderate amount of traction on the lanes, but the Hy-Road Max will read a bit sooner where the Hy-Road will skid just a bit further downlane before entering the hook phase.

All this said, if your current bowling ball you have is going brooklyn, it can be assumed that your ball is hooking too early. This may be corrected by adding a bit of polish to the surface to help it skid further before it enters the hook and roll phases. Between the Hy-Road and the Hy-Road Max, with your ball speed and higher revs, I would suggest looking more closely at the Hy-Road. Having a ball that will go longer should help get you to the pocket. This ball paired with a good drilling layout for you should make a difference in your game. I would suggest speaking with your local PSO about a drilling layout that would fit for you after they watch you bowl a frame or two and determine your PAP.

Best of luck you,
Jessica G.

Hi Robert,

The Pyramid HPX shoes are a very high quality shoe and provide fantastic comfort and performance. The buck skin leather heel should allow you to slide a bit further than the heel that comes already on the shoe. If you find that it is creating too much slide, you can always try a different combination of slide sole with that heel to see if you're able to fine tune your slide. Here is another great article from Bowlversity that covers how to slide smoothly, for your reference: https://www.bowlingball.com/BowlVersity/put-some-...

Best of luck,

Hi Roger,

It sounds like the use of a wrist support could definitely help your game. A device like the Kool Kontrol Wrist Positioner would support your wrist in the proper position throughout your release. It also features removeable metal supports to customize your fit and comfortability. Here is a direct link to the product: https://www.bowlingball.com/shop/all/accessories/...

Best of luck to you,

Hello Maria,

Thank you for your comment. As I am certain you are aware, different bowling lanes have different and unique topography. The USBC does examine lanes throughout the country to ensure compliance with current specifications. It is likely that the lanes at the "old bowling place" are either different material, oiled differently or even just newer/older lanes than that of your new bowling center. Making small adjustments in your game at your new bowling center may prove to be beneficial. Whether it be a different bowling ball, a change in your starting point on the approach or in your aim point on the lanes, fine-tuning your game should help you increase your average overtime at the new lanes.

Best of luck to you,
Jessica G.
