for those of you who have a hook, do you throw a straight ball for
spares or do you still use the hook ?

I use hook for everything BUT the 10 pin - then I use my Cartoon Network
Johnny Bravo ball. "Uh-HUH!" Throw it straight across the lane at about
9mph.

I'm a righty by the way.

First thing, I'm a right-hander bowler.

I use a plastic ball for 6, 10 and 6-10 pins only.

For the 3-6-10 I roll a reactive ball, but with a straight release. (it
helps me to find the better line to get the spare)

And ALWAYS a reactive ball when I have a 3-9 or 2-8 spare.

Depends on the angle I am trying to make into the pins to pick up the
spare - especially splits !!!

Anything with a sleeper gets a hook shot. If I am still looking for
information on lane conditions, and the spare attempt will tell me what
I need to know (i.e. something in the middle, not a corner pin) I will
throw my strike ball at it. Otherwise, any single pin gets a straight
ball. Most 2 pin combos also get the straight treatment. Simple spare do
not need the power that a strike attempt requires.

I think that I'm not the norm, but, except for the 4, 7, 4-7, or 2-7 (I'm a
lefty), I still throw a hook. I've never become comfortable throwing a
straight ball, so I don't do so unless absolutely necessary.
