Hello. I have decided after many years of throwing Brunswick balls to
go somewhere else. I have just purchased a Storm Rapid Fire and was
wondering what other balls I should look for to give me a good group.
I am a medium player across all specs; speed, revs, etc. I normally
play down and in at about the 8th board. I think this new ball will
force me to move inside some more as the ball I have been using is a
very old Proactive Quantumn 2.0. Thanks for any advice.

I'm not sure what you mean by "line" but I can tell you I play pretty
much straight up the 8th board. The ball goes pretty straight and then
breaks to the pocket (hopefully).

I think we could use Arlene Francis or Bennett Cerf about now? (smirk!)

Oh sure, confuzzle the new guy by giving name references that mean
nothing to him!

Is it bigger than a breadbox? (I'm old enough to understand the references ::sigh:: .)

The 8th board is a point, but what LINE do you play?

The best person to seek out is a qualified, respectable Pro Shop
driller who will watch you toss a few shots THEN make ball
suggestions. It's even better if you already have an established
"business relationship" with a driller who already "knows your style,
etc."
