In this video we go over the controversial topic that is Urethane bowling balls. This topic seems to be 50/50 but I am on the side of Urethane being a staple in the bag! Let me know what you guys think on this topic!

Balls in the urethane classification can be sensitive to the weight blocks put inside them. The perfect position of the RG, the proper amount of differential, symmetric vs asymmetric – these all play a vital role in the motion in this type of ball. Dialing in the precise measure of each was no easy feat, but we were up to the challenge. Urethanes are meant to bring back the breakpoint to control shorter patterns. But when the RG is too low, the end result is simply too much of a good thing. The higher RG, medium differential Tour Block weight block keeps the Fast Pitch reading the lane exactly where its needed.

Controll XL is making its debut on the Fast Pitch, bringing the performance characteristics between the Pitch Black™ and the Pitch Purple™. The Pitch Black reigns supreme as the hook/set type of reaction with the Pitch Purple being the cleaner and more angular option. The Fast Pitch blends the line between early read and entry angle making it the most versatile Pitch series ball to date.

    As a senior bowler, I do not see an advantage for older bowlers. Some of the people I bowl with think this is the answer because we are old guys. All I see is them messing up the shot!

    I started bowling league about a year and a half ago in a house with “dry” lanes. In that amount of time I have bought 5 reactive balls, all of which have “overhooked” until they hook no more. To my own consternation I have been unable to figure out why. My suspicion is that my ball speed is too low for the amount of rotation I put on the ball so now I am looking at a eurethane ball in the hopes that I will find it more predictable and consistent. So for me, if it works, Ill be using it as a crutch until it becomes a staple. But I have no spare ball so theres a place in my would-be arsenal for eurethane anyway.
