  1. Love the videos i wish this was posted few days ago. And we did are league tournament on the bear and it gives me a lot of trouble. Keep up the work id love to meet both of you sometime. Keep rollin

    1. Where are you looking on release?? I start by looking at front dots for warm up then 1 foot farther . See if my eye likes that . But I mostly focus on 2nd -3rd arrow area

  2. That’s interesting that there’s not enough reactive hook with reactive balls on this pattern. I’d figured that the GEM would be the perfect ball for the pattern.

  3. Does throwing urethane on the outside on a pattern like this, at least in practice, push some of that oil inside to create more hold?

  4. On patterns like this, you either make shots or you don’t, even with the correct ball in hand. These patterns tell you the truth about your execution and ball choices.

  5. Nice dance moves, guys. If you need lessons, I can help, lol! πŸ˜‚ Great advice on the 41’ Bear pattern. I bowled on it back in January and no one gave me tips on how to attack it.

  6. Thanks for the giveaway guys! Actually was lucky enough to be one of the winners! Went with the gold label!

  7. Really depends on topography, imo. Bear’s not the hardest, but certainly playable with reactive.

    That said, have to make your shots, like any PBA pattern.

  8. If you can’t throw the Revenant on this then Storm missed out on a great opportunity since it smells like a Bear Claw! πŸ˜‚

  9. I’m so glad you guys made this. I played the Bear a few weeks ago and went with urethane down 10. Glad to know I played it relatively correct. Bear felt like a higher volume house shot to me but I could be wrong

  10. Great video guys! Not sure if you’ve already done a video on this but it’d be nice having you explain what leaves should tell us about our throws, balls, or where we’re standing. For example, I throw a Nova down lane and leave a 3-6-10, how should I adjust off that leave? Or if I leave a a split? Should I do a ball change? Move left, aim right? I think you guys do a great job at explaining your thought process behind making adjustments and I’d like to hear from y’all on this. I know there’s a lot of different variables that can contribute to different leaves so maybe we can do a typical house pattern with a mid range rev rate player? Also, still waiting for that Brad & Kyle ball!

  11. Great video always like to get advice on how to read the lanes better. I think it would be cool if after youve been on it for awhile you took shots showing like game2,3,4,5 etc progression and what ball choices you made and why

  12. Hey Brad. We spoke in Overland Park about one of these videos from 4 years ago, how much it helped me. Glad to see these are coming back. Keep killing it
