Query: Properly my spouse purchased me a brand new ball (Hammer Black Widow Venom) 

I used to be out of bowling for a couple of years and the ball actually does not work for me. I throw a powerful hook and a quick ball.

The Venom positively has an excessive amount of hook as I actually can’t management it. I’m proper handed and if I hit the 1-2 pocket I’m fortunate as a result of it hooks means left. I’ve used the ball for a couple of 12 months now on a number of sorts of oil surfaces.

I’ve tried altering my place and velocity and every thing else however I actually simply assume I want a special ball that can hook a lot much less.

Are you able to provide a suggestion?

I’m a common bowler as a sub in a league.

Simply in search of some recommendation on a ball with much less hook than the Venom.

I used to be presumably contemplating primarily based on opinions I’ve learn. I’m contemplating the Brunswick Swarm which has a hook of a 105 on a scales of 10 – 175 as in comparison with the Venom which has a hook of 115 primarily based on a scale of 10-160

Reply: Ron,

First change the floor of the ball from the very shiny out of field (4000) to one thing that can burn vitality off (1000) earlier than the large transfer down the lane. That ought to assist some. A special structure may even get the ball to roll a lot milder additionally. If you wish to plug the ball.

Not understanding something about your rev fee, velocity (apart from exhausting), tilt, rotation and lane circumstances, its close to unattainable to recommend a ball. The place do you need to play on the lane? Up the boards? swing the ball a bit? level the ball to the pocket? The place do you place your slide foot at set-up? RH or LH? Do you drift? The place does your slide foot end on the foul line? What’s your goal on the lane from the set-up described? Do you might have a earlier ball that you simply appreciated? 

How a lot much less would you want the brand new ball to hook? Hook JUST much less or later? Earlier? The Swarm is much less ball however I am unsure how a lot much less you may want. But.

Let me know extra and I can get a deal with on the state of affairs. Thanks for the query.
