Hello, I'm Mike Rhodes, house pro here at Ten Pin Alley. Today, I want to talk about how to ball these new reactive resin balls. You will need a reactive bowling ball, bowling shoes, bowling lanes. Alright, I guess, it's a little funny sounding because they've been out now for I guess, going on 20 years. Since 93, I believe, is when they first came on the market. They do roll a bit different than the bowling ball of old. If you haven't had a chance to throw one of them, and you throw a hook with one of these plastic ball. You'll be in for a big surprise because the hooking characteristics of the resin are a lot higher. When I'm trying to sell these bowling balls, this is like bowling with, a Hugo as opposed to a Porsche. these balls have a lot more hooking characteristics but they can also be challenging, if you're not used to them. With the plastic balls, they're going to roll pretty straight to where you throw, where as these balls really grip. The proper way to throw a, and the one I would recommend is, you need quite a bit of speed to throw these balls. If you're a senior or a child that doesn't have much ball speed. I'm not sure these bowling balls are going to do you much good, I'm just being honest there. But for anybody that's got some speed and they've got some turn, go ahead and talk to your local house pro. He's going to show you how to set up the layouts that work for your game. And you'll be in for a surprise, because these balls will definitely take off and give you nice hook. The proper way to throw them, just use your regular release and just adjust on the lanes from there, and let your house pro work with you. But you want to release these balls, the only difference I would say between these and your old urethane plastic. You want to release the ball very cleanly, do not pop open the ball. As it might make the ball hook or skid just too much. Be clean with the shot and that's the proper way to throw a reactive resin ball.
