Need advice on what ball to use.

I carry a 246 average but can't get passed the Zero-G Grand Championship Qualifier. I hit the pocket but seem to always leave to many 10 pins. Is there a ball for this lane which could help?

Fork over the money and get The Ultimate. It is as the name suggests, Ultimate. It has complete power, hook, and control. Literally imo you need no other ball in the game. It's the first ball I use and I have rolled many, many 300's with it. It's a bit pricey I'll Admit but well worth it if you're serious about the game.

Try using the ultimate ball on the odd number frames and the lightening ball on the even numbered frames. If you aim head on with the lightening ball on every shot throwing it slow, it will strike. Aim the ultimate ball at the pocket, a bit heavy on the head pin. Using the ultimate ball will regenerated the lightening ball with one throw.

I have found using the harbinger the best ball for zero-g lanes, the pins don't act the sme as in other lanes so you need a straighter ball trajectory.

I use a weaker ball on some patterns when my most powerful ball leaves single pins.

Try using your oil for a mark instead

Same problem as other person. Get through other tourneys fine but that one I can't win, lol. If I average 240,they bowl 275. I keep leaving 7 or 10 pin no matter what ball I am using.

I've found the the fortune cookie ball right in the pocket pretty much full speed work best for me , a few bomb ball in between helps

I used the (trooper ) straight down the middle NO HOOK !!



Guest answered:

Just use the bomb ball, even if you have to wait for it to recharge. It makes for a long game time but that is how I conquered it. I had the same issues as all others, did fine on all other levels but would consistently leave the 7 or 10 pin.

Guest answered:

This got me a 256,2 average in the championship qualifier, including one 300 game:

Start your throw at exactly where the pocket is, and bowl straight forward into the pocket. What you want is a 0° angle hit without a hook. Just before hitting the pocket, add just a touch of hook towards the inside to make the ball go straighter through the pins.

Hope this helps. Still needs a touch of luck, but this is what I found to be most consistent.

Use the house ball it worked great for me, and practice practice practice.



Guest answered:

I had to decide to exercise a little patience and bowl one painstaking frame at a time using the bomb ball. It usually recharges within 2-3 hours and after about 5 games, I could try and roll using another ball occasionally....sometimes I just paid the pins to use the bomb ball faster but within a few days, I was able to say mission accomplished

Use the trooper! Use device flick. Guaranteed 300 game Every time!


Guest answered:

Use the Bear ball and get 300 every game any lane. Just set it right 4 clicks. Then full power the arrow. Then 4 clicks to the right again to set the arrow. Hit that green mark every time or as close as possible you have a quarter inch of guaranteed 300 games. Don't forget 5 gold pins every 300. Its completely flawless. Unless you mess up. Try it. Do it in practice first. I've learned that each ball has it's own secret settings for strikes every game. Except 1 ball. The Dallas Strikers. It only has a 25% Strike capability on the first frame ONLY. I set mine 6 clicks to the right. Full power. And 5 clicks to the right and have a 90% Chance of Strikes. Great for fast energy recovery. And I love the Grab bag ball. I'll just leave it at that. Good luck



Guest answered:

Bear ball using an inside line works well. You can also use Harbinger or Beeline. Basically you want to use a powerful ball down the middle that won't break too much.



Guest answered:

It takes a long time to level up! Easy way?



TheeShit answered:

Unbelievably I passed it with the Ninja ball. I use the oil for my mark, and threw a somewhat straight ball until the last second. I slide It over a couple boards to the left since I'm left handed.
Good luck

I worked and worked to earn the KINGPIN ball. If gives me 100 XP and 100 energy per shot, plus the bomb ball recharges after only four or five Kingpin rolls, so I can get two or three guaranteed strikes per game. It's more affordable than Ultimate, though it took lots of work. I got my gold pins by buying the football and rolling strikes on the Gridiron lanes -- one gold pin and 150 XP per strike. Can earn 300 pins in a couple hours that way, times two weeks is 5,000 gold pins.

As for leaving the 10 pin a lot, that is because of a "light" pocket hit. You might want to try starting a little bit further outside and using more of a driving hook into the 1-3 "pocket" to drive through the pins. In a light hit, the ball glances off the pocket and doesn't push the pins down to take out the 10 and/or the 7.



Guest answered:

I got the advice from here. The Bear ball definitely works great. Just use a direct line to the pocket. Speed is a good effective way to go.
