  1. JR, question, sometimes I get a little confused when the term “CLEAN” is used when talking about bowling balls, can you help me out a little on this? Thanks and always a great job!

    1. Clean meaning the ball makes it through the first 25ft or the lane without trying to hook or curve. If it hooks or sees friction early it’s not very clean

  2. Hi! I love your bowling videos, and I would love to do some one day. I’m on the highschool bowling team, but I don’t have any money to get new equipment. It would change my bowling career forever if you bought me a bowling ball. I know they are not cheap, so I will be incredibly grateful. Thank you! -Connor

    1. CJ PeeJay hey man, hope high school is treating you well. Stop asking for charity and get a job, don’t see why his hard work should be rubbed off for free

    2. I’m with that other guy. I grew up in low income housing without ANY money. I had to get a job at 15 in order to have food on the table. Point being… don’t ask for charity. If I had to work in order to eat, you can work for a bowling ball. Also, you can bowl low to mid 200’s with a solid ball and a house plastic ball. I know because I did it for years. Work work work. Whether it’s getting a job and WORKING in order to buy a ball or it’s WORKING on your approach, swing, tempo, timing releases in order to get better scores with what you have.

  3. I have a Rotogrip hyper cell skid, I’m looking for a hybrid ball, You recommend me the halo vision? this halo vision what can do? control ball ? agressive

    1. I really like the entire halo series. I however prefer the widow series from hammer. The problem with saying “what a ball can do,” is it varies greatly from bowler to bowler. From how you drill it to ball speed and rev rate, there are so many factors. The biggest factor is PREFERENCE of a certain core/cover stock.. I like the singularity and drive through the pins that I get from hammer black and gold, when it comes to hybrid balls. However, i prefer the reaction of the halo pearl over every other pearl on the market

  4. id like to see you do a video of your 3 halo’s with the same layout all with the same surface. maybe 3000 pad, then what the difference is with them all polished. see how much of a difference. some people think there’s no difference in cover type

  5. looking for a medium hook ball that has a cover that is very like, grippable because I am two handed and I have trouble gripping balls that pick up oil quickly

    1. @King LaVaughn lol I was actually going to get that for Christmas before that exact same ball the hustle au. Thanks for the info

  6. Not a fan of the IQ pearl have one since the day it came out with less than 3 games. I would go to a pink hammer widow or the idol pearl that’s my go to balls after my solid don’t work.

  7. Wanna do a “urethane showcase” u throw the urethanes on different patterns and urethanes from different brands (motiv, storm, hammer)?

    1. It depends, pearls hook more off friction and are more angular, solid hook more overall because they dig into the oil and hook early

  8. Many thanks, I have been researching “how to throw a bowling ball straight” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of – Piylivern Remarkable Predominance – (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now ) ? It is a smashing exclusive product for discovering how to up your bowling game quickly minus the headache. Ive heard some decent things about it and my colleague got amazing results with it.
