Did someone mention bowling?
Ok, wood vs. synthetic:
Wood lanes typically will push down and then dry up over the course of 3 games. I'm speculating we're discussing a league condition? Synthetic lanes will commonly push down, but the heads (early area of the lane) will dry up resulting in early hook followed by a skid to the pocket. The shot also tends to change more rapidly on synthetic lanes. Typically centers with synthetic lanes use a ligher oil pattern due to the carry down problems. Some of them do use a very heavy short pattern though, so it really depends on what the house condition is.
Dull Rotogrip? I'll take a stab and say a Silver Streak? If in fact it's a Silver Streak you might find it to be a bit erratic on the synthetic lanes. Tends to overhook or skid really easy based on the oil. If you like Rotogrip equipment then I carried a Top Fuel for quite some time and judging from the semibig hook comment that either a Top Fuel (but polish it) or the Pure Fuel might be a good fit for you. Both are good for either types of lanes and are solid bowling balls.
Feel free to add any further comments/questions to this thread, or feel free to pm me about it. I can talk bowling for ever.
