Just finished getting my ball drilled a few hours before league time.
Conditions: HEAVY!!! Oiled 15 minutes before start of league, Natural Wood Lanes.

Never bowled on wood lanes before or on lanes oiled just before starting to bowl. It felt like bowling on a PBA pattern. for the first 3 weeks Bowling with my Storm Intrusion I could not get my ball to turn over at all. I usually throw around 16-17 mph but to get the ball to react I was throwing between 12-13 with a crank. Last week I decided to put 500 grit sand paper so I noticed a decent difference as I was able to speed up my ball to around 14 mph on the throw but was still having to crank the ball. Finally took my Revenge to the lanes last night for the first time ever. In practice I was just throwing it to see how it felt on my hand but then towards the end of it I started to actually bowl and see what it does. At first it wasnt doing much. But then when I took my towel too it I noticed there must be something up. It felt sticky when I went to towel my ball off so I thought the coverstock must be reacting to oil. So I started toweling off after every ball. The ball would jump!

Anyway, To make a long story short. My average in the first month was 158 on these lanes (Very Frustrating)
Last night I bowled 205, 146 (lanes started changing and couldnt adjust correctly.), and 207. I think that I will get better after a few weeks with it. I dont have to bag it after the first 2 games. Oil is heavy all night. I actually stayed on the lanes to bowl for fun afterwards and bowled 236 and then bowled 181 between my legs haha. I feel very comfortable with this ball. I recommend this ball to anyone that I know. Very good ball.

One last thing. . . I was throwing it between 15-16.5 MPH so I didnt have to back it down either.
