Funny story today in the pro shop I thought I would share with you all. A customer comes in to the pro shop today who’s interested in purchasing a new ball. So I ask him to get a lane and go throw a few balls so I can watch his style etc and find his PAP ( posative axis point ). He throws the first shot … ball comes back … I trace his track … then put a piece of tape on his axis … he throws the second and third shots and the tape is very stable … so the PAP is bang on … so now I leave and come to the pro shop to determine his PAP co-ordinates …. after doing so I clean the yellow pencil marks off the ball with some PowerHouse Clean n Dull … his ball is a Storm Victory Road and is not polished so this gel like cleaner really cleans up balls with no polish … so after cleaning the ball on the ball spinner … it’s real “tacky” … so I go back to the bowler and give him the ball … he throws it and says WOW that moves a little more now … I have not cleaned it since I got it … and I’ve bowled say 50 games or so ?? He continues to practice on the lanes. About 15 minutes he comes into the pro shop … with a nice smile on his face … and says what did you use to clean that ball ?? So I ask why ? Is everything ok ? He says Bill … I just shot 300 !! Hey cleaning your ball doesn’t hurt !! Sometimes it can help !! and sometimes you might just shoot 300 … but hey I am not going to go out on a limb and promise that one !!
Bowl Well Everyone .
