    Kkakka... no wonder! I go down on Sat morning, after all the housework, but before 2pm. It's like I own the whole alley.

    As suggested by Sharpion in the other thread, let's also post some pics of our balls (bowling balls! Dun go gutter! Hur hur). And more importantly, the drilling setup

    Lemme start off.

    My weapons of choice:

    Main ball (Heavy/medium oil): Brunswick Strike Zone (sanded like the original finish)
    Light-oil ball: Hammer The Deal (Sanded down slightly from the original polished finish)
    Spare ball: Columbia 300 White Dot (Needs a polishing )

    Setup:

    Obviously all finger-tip grip. Have teflon-tape inserts in the thumbholes for an even slicker/faster release. Both main balls dilled by Ken Pro Shop for smoother, more consistent roll to the pocket rather than skid/snap. I think the balance hole is also there for the same reason. Not very sure 'cos I'm damn blur about drilling setups...

    Woohoo, how much did you pay for the columbia 300? Kkakakka... I'll recognise you by your balls then.

    Looks like we've got bowlers from all over Singapore. Would Mt Faber Safra be more central for all of us? Never been there before but at least it's new. Weekends good for everyone, like a sat afternoon? Any idea if the Mt Faber alley takes bookings? If not can consider the Star Bowl over at Bukit Batok which does accept them. Furthermore I go so often that they recognise me and auto give me discounted members price (even though I'm not a member).
