#82 Bebola Bowling untuk Lorong Pelbagai Keadaan

Assalamualaikum semua peserta PDBL 2011 musim ke-3... singkatan komersial PDBL2011-3

Alhamdulillah kita telah diberi peluang sekali lagi oleh Allah swt untuk bersama-sama menjayakan PDBL2011-3 ini.... syukur syukur alhamdulillah. Semoga PDBL2011-3 kali ini akan berterusan membawa kemeriahan dan kegembiraan kepada semua peserta... temanya pada kali ini ialah santai-santai sukan! sebut betul-betul ya.... nanti disebutnya santau-santau x ke haru... dah la tv sekarang ni byk citer-citer cenggitu... seremmmm!

alhamdulillah PDBL2011-3 telah bermula pada 25 Feb 2011 yang lepas... lebih 20 peserta menghadirkan diri namun terdapat beberapa peserta yang tidak dapat hadir pd malam tersebut kerana kekangan tugasan yang tidak dapat dielakkan... justeru insyaallah mereka akan diberi peluang untuk menggantikan sesi tersebut pada satu tarikh yang akan ditetapkan kelak... sebelum menjelangnya pertemuan kedua pada bulan mac nnt... bersama-samalah kita menghangatkan suasana nnt di megalanes perai yer...

Seindah tajuk nukilan di atas... suka saya berkongsi serba sedikit mengenai peri pentingnya penggunaan bola yang sesuai bagi keadaan lorong yang pelbagai. Perkara ini amat penting bagi memastikan konsistensi jatuhan pin yang tinggi bagi bowler berprestasi tinggi (bila weyy aku nk masuk list hi-average bowler ni???...).

Sebelum saya pergi dengan lebih lanjut... bowlers smua perlu mengetahui jenis-jenis lane conditions yang perlu dihadapi oleh anda smua....

Short-oil atau Dry (kering): Kebanyakan pusat bowling yang menggunakan non-synthetic lane mempunyai keadaan lane seperti ini... hookers kekananan akan mendapati balingan mereka akan tersasar ke kiri lorong (pin 7) pada kadar yang lebih cepat manakala hookers kekirian akan ke arah bertentangan (pin 10). Penggunaan bola plastik sangat digalakkan bagi mengurangkan efek curvature yang melampau... elakkan penggunaan bola reaktif.

Medium-oil (sederhana) atau Long-oil atau heavy (banyak minyak la ni): kebanyakan pusat bowling yang mempunyai lane synthetic akan menyediakan keadaan lorong berminyak. Penggunaan reaktif ball sangat digalakkan bagi menghasilkan efek curvature yang bermomentum tinggi! (Kuiz: apakan unit SI yang digunakan untuk menyatakan nilai sesuatu momentum?)

Types of Bowling Balls for Different Lane Conditions

By James Bisson, eHow Contributor .updated: July 10, 2010

The casual bowler may not worry about varying lane conditions, but more skilled players often pay close attention. The condition of the lane plays a major impact on how a thrown ball will react—specifically, how much it will curve. A bowling ball that performs well on dry lane conditions almost certainly will not offer the same performance on an oily surface. For bowlers who wish to perform at their peak, having separate balls for different lane conditions is imperative.

Dry Lane Conditions

•Dry lane conditions are most commonly found in older bowling centers that haven't converted to synthetic lanes. Lanes that are oiled to help facilitate ball movement will also experience dry conditions as the oil evaporates due to increased temperatures or is worn away with use. When facing these conditions, a player should opt for a polished ball—the smoother, the better. A slick ball will act as its own curving agent on a dry surface, providing adequate hook to hit the center of the pins without requiring any oil. Many pro bowlers will wipe their ball with a dry towel prior to the throw to ensure it is as slick as possible.

Oily Lane Conditions

•Oily lane conditions are trickier to navigate. Regular synthetic lanes will always offer a certain amount of slickness, making them more consistent with regard to speed and amount of hook. Heavily oiled lanes offer less consistency because the oil will dry up or wear away over the course of a day. A rough, dry ball works best on a slick lane. The ball essentially lets the lane do all the work; a well thrown hook shot will "catch" the oil about halfway down and curve toward the middle. Smoother bowling balls perform poorly on these conditions; because both surfaces are slippery, the ball doesn't "catch" properly, skidding out and missing the middle altogether.

Spare Balls

•Regardless of the lane condition, it is always a good idea to have a ball for converting one-pin spares. Expert bowlers don't get fancy when it comes to making a spare, which is why they opt for a straight shot over their normal curve throw. With a straight toss, a bowler is not left at the mercy of shifting lane conditions that may cause the ball to over-hook, under-hook or spin out completely. For a single-pin spare or a conversion involving two or more pins bunched together, a heavy ball is the right choice. A well-placed shot with a heavier ball will wipe out larger groups of pins with ease. A heavier ball will also travel straighter. Multi-pin "split" spares—where the pins are further apart—should be attempted with a regular ball, since a hook is the only way to generate the necessary pin action to complete the spare.

PJH, Terima kasih di atas info di atas. Cuma kalau boleh "first ball" tidak digalakkan menggunakan "plastic ball". Tetapi, sebaik-baiknya kita boleh gunakan "3 angle option" untuk balingan...iaitu dari tepi, tengah atau kanan.

Terima kasih Dr.Tun... komen Dr. tu ado benarnya... cumo drpd pengalaman amatur sy... pabila byk buat adjustment utk dry lane(masih menggunakan reaktif ball), ia byk menganggu rentak 1st throw dan mengundang kecederaan thumb... bagi keadaan dry lane terutamanya di sekitar ipoh... sy cadangkan penggunaan slick ball atau entry level reactive ball seperti ebonite tornado... insyaallah anda dapat bermain seperti biasa... so jom bli bebola baru... hook drilling pls... ;p
