Should Urethane Bowling Balls Be Used On House Shots and Leagues

Here's the age old question. Should Urethane bowling balls be used on a house shot and in league

In this video I will go over this topic and why I believe what I believe!

Storm Pitch Black Bowling Ball

Storm has created the Pitch Black, a solid urethane ball, for their Thunder Line. This ball is intended to provide control on lighter and shorter oil conditions. The Capacitor core gives this ball a straighter but strong delivery.

-Coverstock: Controll Solid Urethane
-Weight Block: Capacitor Core
-Factory Finish: 1000-grit Pad
-Ball Color: Pitch Black
-RG:2.57 (for 15# ball)
-Diff:0.022 (for 15# ball)
-Recommended Lane Condition: Light Oil

Roto Grip Rubicon UC3 Bowling Ball

The Rubicon™ UC3 (Ultimate Concept 3) takes Tour Level performance to a whole new level. We first focused on core specifics and decided that the mildly asymmetric Rondure™ Core was the ideal core shape in order to generate adequate flare.

From there we engineered the Tour-ethane™ Pearl coverstock to maximize performance and control on those higher friction patterns and lane surfaces. This core and urethane cover combination changes the game!

Tour-ethane™ Coverstock
Sometimes in the search to find the answer to modern day situations, you are forced to take a step or two backwards and investigate pre-existing alternative options that in the end, just may hold the answer to what you are in search of. Such is the case in the development and creation of our new Tour-ethane coverstock material. This material was derived as the result of this new direction of thinking and formulating. Our R&D Team followed the chemistry path of pure urethane from yesteryear in order to find the answer to the modern-day struggle in terms of excessive friction. Whether it is due to friction in the oil pattern, friction in the lane surface, or a combination of both. To that we say – Fear Friction No More!

    Urethane balls should be allowed! One guy in my league gets bent out of shape when a urethane ball is used against him. So when I bowl him, I pull out my urethane to get into his head!

  2. Joe says:

    Both my axis tilt and axis rotation are high, and not surprisingly, my Pitch Black pukes on THS.

    If I had to choose a new urethane ball, should it be the Purple Hammer, the UC-3, or the Double Cross?
