DV8 To Introduce Three New Balls

RUCKUS™ Feud The red/black/yellow Ruckus Feud features the new Class 12 solid reactive coverstock formulation matched with the medium RG, asymmetric Ruckus core.  This combination provides more traction in oil with outstanding backend to produce the most total hook of any DV8 ball to date on heavy oil lane conditions. 

Misfit™ Red/Orange The neon red/orange Misfit uses the high RG Misfit core and our new Class 1C solid reactive coverstock to provide more length and a more controlled backend reaction than previous Misfits.

The silver/pink DV8 DIVA™ Pearl  features Class 5F coverstock matched with the medium RG, symmetric Diva core to provide easy length, strong flip motion, and plenty of attitude for the pins.  The Diva Pearl offers outstanding shelf appeal and is best suited for medium oil lane conditions.

Available: Worldwide January 23rd, 2014.

The Bowling Center - Episodes #2, #3


Two New For Storm Bowling

The Blue Solid /Gold Pearl IQ Tour Fusion yields the same strong, aggressive move to the pocket without the sensitivity to higher volumes of oil then the previous IQ Tour or IQ Pearl (while containing the same C³™ Centripetal Control Core. The IQ Tour Fusion’s surface roughness of the new R2S™ hybrid mixture is approximately 12% higher than the pearl, meaning that it can handle more oil (1500-grit Polished), while the highly polished finish keeps it from hooking too early! Feel free to move inside and open up your angle…the IQ Tour Fusion will take care of the rest. Fragrance: Blueberry Muffin

The new Storm Zero Gravity incorporates ERG™ Solid Reactive 2-tone Purple/Red Coverstock finished with a 4000-grit Pad surrounding the Shape-Lock™ LD core. Fragrance: Grape

Two New Balls From Columbia 300 in January

Columbia is releasing 2 new balls on January 7th. The Crazy Antics and the Take Down.

“Awesome Reaction 300 Flip is the perfect cover for length and a nice big move on the backend” reports Columbia.  Further “The Crazy Antics provides a crazy amount of length and backend motion for a polished high performance ball.”
The Crazy Antics made it's PBA debut this past Sunday for Chris Barnes and Columbia 300. You could not miss the wildly colorful White, Orange and Purple ball.

The Hi-Dynamix core as featured in the Antics is one of the most dynamic cores they’ve ever produced according to the latest.  With a medium RG, High Differential and High Mass bias, the Antics core helps the ball produce awesome mid lane and backend motion. 

“The Columbia 300 Take Down features Bring-It Pearl and will give you great length and recovery without sacrificing overall hook” proclaims the latest release from Columbia. Further they explain “While we left some surface on the pearl cover to give you added hook and performance, you can polish your Take Down to give you even better length when encountering less volume (of oil).”

The Take Down contains the Smack Down core, a medium RG and high differential. The medium RG helps the Take Down get further down the lane before the high differential kicks in for continuation at the pin deck.

MOTIV Adds Sigma Sting

The Sigma Sting™ is a pearl tuned to be an benchmark ball.  Engineered for medium oil, it provides great length and outstanding backend motion that continues confidently through the pin deck.  This is the first time MOTIV has put a pearl cover stock around the Sigma™ core. 

The low RG Sigma™ core utilized has been a favorite of MOTIVated bowlers because it provides a versatile ball motion with a very high strike percentage.  The 15# model has a differential of .047, which produces plenty of track flare without expending too much energy, leaving fuel in the tank for a strong backend. 

The Sigma Sting™ cover technology is Fusion™ Pearl Reactive, first used on the Primal Rage™.  This shell is known for being very angular when it encounters friction, yet retains energy for bulldozing continuation.  It is tuned with a 1500 grit Power Gel® polished finish to give this low RG ball more length and faster response. Look for the new MOTIV in December.

Hammer Introduces the AMP UP

December 10th look for the new Hammer Amp Up.

The Amp Up features Hammer’s PowerShot asymmetric core, first used in the Amp, and designed to provide ultra-high mid-lane revolutions with a very defined breakpoint.

Combine that with the new Overdrive pearl coverstock, and you’ve got another of the strongest rolling upper-mid priced balls in the history of Hammer. With more length and backend than its predecessor, the Amp and Amp Up make a great one-two punch.

9-Year-Old Girl Shoots 300 Game

Hannah Diem of Seminole, FL, became the youngest United States Bowling Congress member to roll a certified 300 game on Nov. 17 when she ended her Youth/Adult Fall League session at Liberty Lanes in Largo, FL, with 12 consecutive strikes.

At 9 years, 6 months and 19 days, Hannah broke the previous overall record of 10 years, 2 months, set by Chaz Dennis of Columbus, Ohio, in 2006, and shattered the girls’ mark of 12 years, 4 months, set by Brandie Reamy of Farmington, MI, also in 2006.

Hannah started the night with games of 204 and 226 before rolling the perfect game to finish with a 730 series, a personal best by 166 pins. Entering the session, her high game was 224 and her high series was 564.
“Going into the third game, I knew what she needed for her first 600 series, but then the strikes started to add up,” said Heidi Diem, Hannah’s mother. “It’s like every shot she threw was right there. It was magical.”

Diem credits much of her daughter's continuing improvement to the support and guidance of the older youth bowlers at Liberty Lanes and the dedication of USBC Bronze coach James Crouch, who runs the youth program. Hannah also spent time over the summer at the Kegel Training Center in Lake Wales, FL.

In four years of certified competition, Hannah has raised her average to 162. She bowls in multiple leagues each week, practices often and bowls in tournaments on weekends. In 2012, she won her singles division at the Florida State Youth Tournament.

After her second game Sunday night, Hannah asked her mother when she thought she’d roll her first perfect game. The answer was, “Next year.” It turned out to be the next game.

“I tried not to talk to her too much and distract her,” Heidi Diem said. “I don’t know how she composed herself. I’ve never thrown a 300 or been close, so I don’t know the pressure she felt when she was up there. Going into the 10th frame, it’s like she didn’t waiver at all. She just got up there and nailed it.”
For Hannah, the accomplishment is a little bit overwhelming.

“At first, I wasn’t that confident I could do it, but as I got more strikes, I felt like maybe it could happen,” said Hannah, who uses a 12-lb. ball. “This just feels amazing. It’s so much excitement, and my brain is still trying to process it all.”
Hannah hopes to continue improving with the help of her teammates and coaches, and her sights are set on potentially competing in the Youth Open Championships and USBC Junior Gold Championships in the Buffalo, NY, area next summer. For now, she and her mother are simply enjoying the chance to bowl together on Sunday nights.

“She certainly didn’t get the bowling gene from me,” Diem said. “I always joke that it skipped me, and she got double, but it means a lot that it’s something we can do together.”

The achievement is pending formal approval from the USBC.

Malott Wins Cheetah Championship in Las Vegas

Wes Malott Wins Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Cheetah Championship for Ninth Career Title Opening telecast in PBA World Series of Bowling V series introduces “blue oil” to TV fans.

Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, capped a three-match sweep in the finals of the Professional Bowlers Association Cheetah Championship, defeating top qualifier Parker Bohn III of Jackson, NJ, in the title match of the historic ESPN telecast, 243-169, for his ninth career PBA Tour title.

The first of seven telecasts from PBA World Series of Bowling V at South Point Hotel, Casino and Bowling Center aired Sunday on ESPN, and featured the use of a highly-visible blue oil on the lanes for the first time in PBA history.
Malott, in winning his second consecutive title, defeated Colombia native Clara
Guerrero, 214-208, in the opening match, and was nearly perfect in ousting
51-year-old PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber of St. Ann, MO, 288-242, in advancing to the title match.

Guerrero, only the third woman ever to advance to the nationally-televised
championship round of a PBA Tour event, made a short-lived, but exciting
appearance. The 31-year-old former Wichita State University star – now married and an American citizen living not far from Malott in Pflugerville – took a 15-pin lead over Malott into the eighth frame of the opening match. But Malott
finished with a string of five strikes to eliminate Guerrero, 214-208, and
exorcise a personal demon.

In two previous nationally-televised matches against another woman star, Liz
Johnson of Cheektowaga, NY, Malott lost both times. He committed a foul that
contributed to a 235-228 loss to Johnson in the 2005 PBA Banquet Open (the first time a woman had ever appeared on a PBA Tour telecast), and in July, after he won the U.S. Open in Columbus, Ohio, Malott lost a special “Battle of the Sexes” match against Johnson, the Women’s U.S. Open winner, 194-188.

“There was a lot riding on this show, especially for me,” Malott said. “The
first match against Clara – the lady – I obviously remembered my foul against
Liz and losing to Liz at the U.S. Open. I needed to get that off my back. As
much as I acted like it wasn’t there, it was on the back of my mind. I told
myself at the end of the match I couldn’t give up and let it happen again, so I
wanted to put the pressure on her and I was fortunate to come out the winner.”

For Guerrero, just the opportunity “was a dream,” she said. “Every time you see
the guys on TV, you want to compete with them, beat them. So being here, having the opportunity to bowl against the greatest bowlers in the world, it was a dream. It was the best part of my career.”

After closing out Guerrero with his string of five strikes, Malott added another
10 in a row against Weber, losing his shot at a perfect game when he left a 10
pin on his 11th shot.

“That might have been the best shot I threw all day,” Malott said of the 11th
shot. “I’d throw that one again a million times.”

He continued his torrid pace, striking on seven of his first eight shots in
racing away from Bohn in the title match.

“Against Pete, both of us are kind of in the running for player of the year, and
I thought I would help my chances by winning that match,” Malott said, “but I
also had to beat Parker to win the title, so every match meant a lot. I just
worried about myself and did what I could to win back-to-back titles (the
Cheetah Championship was the first PBA Tour event since the U.S. Open), and it’s a great feeling.”

The Cheetah Championship was the first time a lane conditioning oil with a color additive had ever been used in a PBA Tour championship event, and it was praised by both Guerrero and Malott.

“I saw it,” Guerrero said. “I thought it was going to be a little different. I
thought I’d see the lines on the bowling ball, but it didn’t bother me at all. I
think it’s cool for the audience to actually see the oil and understand the game
a little more, but I just ignored it.”

Malott agreed.

“Everyone was concerned about what the dye was going to do to the oil, but I
really didn’t move for all three games,” he said. “Because I bowled all three
games playing the same line, so you could see the track of the ball. That’s what
I was curious about.

“This oil could be very educating for the fans and outsiders to help them
understand what we’re dealing with, and to see how accurate we are,” he added.

“To me that’s more important than what the oil did to us. I don’t think it affected anything performance-wise. I’m kind of excited about it.”

The “blue oil” will be used in all four animal pattern championship finals held
during the World Series. The Viper Championship presented by PBA Bowling Challenge will air next Sunday, Dec. 8, followed by the Chameleon Championship on Dec. 15 and the Scorpion Championship on Dec. 22. All December telecasts begin at 1 p.m. ET.

Next Sunday’s Viper Championship telecast will include a “speed bowling” PBA League Challenge, calling for players to roll as many strikes as possible in a span of 90 seconds.

Roto Grip Lets Us Look Behind the Curtain for 2014

Roto Grip announces, the newest additions to the Roto Grip family of performance bowling balls set to hit pro shop walls on January 7th, 2014.
The HP4™ line expands reaction with the addition of the new Hyper Cell™. In the HP3™ line the Asylum™ joins the fray, while in the HP2™ line the Uproar™ rounds out their newest creations.

With the success of the original Cell™ and Nucleus™ Core back in 2009 and given the more recent success of the MicroBite™ solid coverstock used on the original Defiant™, Roto felt it was time to mix the best of the past and the strongest of the present into one. And so the Hyper Cell was born. There is no doubt the Defiant series of balls have been quite successful over the last couple years, but we knew it was time for something just a little more special. Wrapped with the 80H™ MicroBite solid reactive cover, this ball will create even more midlane motion and more continuation than ever before in the HP4 line.

Utilizing the proven Middle Roll 70™ core that has made the Disturbed™ and Deranged™ staples in most arsenals, Roto set out to create another valuable option in this line so they wrapped this sweet rolling core with a 63MH™ Hybrid reactive coverstock. As we all know, hybrid creates the best of both worlds with ease through the front thanks to the pearl and control on the backends thanks to the solid.
Given the performance of the Rumble™ Roto Grip added a pearlized version. This new addition features the same Late Roll 51™ Core which will provide plenty of length and superb control off the breakpoint.

PBA Dyes Lane Oil for Animal Championships

The Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) will take an 
historic step toward illustrating the challenges bowlers face when blue dye will 
be added to the lane conditioning oil for ESPN’s telecasts of five PBA World 
Series of Bowling championship events this weekend.

PBA worked with its official lane maintenance provider Brunswick to formulate 
and test the oil that will be applied exclusively on the pair of Brunswick lanes 
installed in the South Point Hotel Exhibit Hall B complex for the World Series 
of Bowling ESPN-televised finals.  The oil is not a product on the market and is 
being used only for the WSOB TV shows.

“Throughout its history, it has been difficult to describe the challenges 
players face in our sport,” PBA Commissioner Tom Clark said. “How oil is applied 
to the lane, and how it transitions as competition 
progresses, is something no one is able to see with the naked eye, and those are critical variables in scoring and player strategy.
“For the first time ever, we’re going to add dye to the oil so that bowling fans on site and watching at home on ESPN will literally be able to see how the pattern of oil looks on the lane. We are sure it will be educational and insightful for all levels of fans tuning in and we hope to learn from this experiment and improve it moving forward.”
The dyed oil will debut with the Cheetah Championship which uses the 35-foot PBA Cheetah oil pattern. The Viper (39 feet), Chameleon (43 feet), and Scorpion Championships (47 feet) will follow.
PBA Hall of Famer Carmen Salvino said visible oil was a milestone in educating the audience and elevating the sport. “A lot of credit has to go to PBA for taking what I believe is a huge step for the sport, and to Brunswick for doing the extensive research and development that was necessary to have the oil ready for this event,” Salvino said.
The WSOB shows will be taped Saturday and Sunday Nov. 2 and 3 and will air on ESPN beginning Dec. 1 at p.m. ET.

PBA Scorpion Championships Lead by Collegian Marshall Kent

Two-time Collegiate Bowler of the Year Marshall Kent of Yakima, WA, the only amateur in the field, won the top berth for the stepladder finals of the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA)’s Scorpion Championship Tuesday at South Point Bowling Center.
Kent, a student at Robert Morris University-Illinois  in Chicago, averaged 227.79 for 14 games on the Scorpion lane condition, finishing with a 3,189 pinfall total to claim the top rung in the stepladder finals by 12 pins over 2012 PBA World Champion Tom Smallwood of Saginaw, MI. Josh Blanchard of Gilbert, AZ, qualified third with a 3,162 total and Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, SC, earned the fourth spot in the finals with 3,146 pins, 23 ahead of three-time PBA50 Player of the Year Tom Baker of King, NC.
Blanchard and Jones, bowling on the same pair of lanes, rolled matching 269 final games to earn their shots at the title. The Scorpion Championship finals will take place on Saturday, Nov. 2, at 7 p.m. ESPN will air the finals on Sunday, Dec. 22, at 1 p.m. ET. The Scorpion Championship was the fourth of five PBA Tour events that compose the PBA World Series of Bowling.
Kent, who finished fourth in Bowling’s U.S. Open in July, was invited to bowl in the World Series on a PBA Commissioner’s Exemption because he is still in college.
Earlier Tuesday, England’s Dom Barrett led the field of 24 players who advanced to the PBA World Championship round-robin match play finals Wednesday and Thursday based upon combined 28-game qualifying pinfall totals from the Cheetah, Viper, Chameleon and Scorpion rounds. Barrett averaged 237.67 in compiling a 6,655 pinfall total for 28 games, topping Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, by 209 pins. Maldonado qualified third with 6,405 pins.

Dom Barrett #1 Berth for PBA Chameleon Championships

England’s Dom Barrett advanced from sixth place to first Monday night, claiming the No. 1 berth in the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA)’s Chameleon Championship stepladder finals at South Point Bowling Center, in Las Vegas, NV, the third of five events that compose the PBA World Series of Bowling V.
Barrett, who won his only PBA Tour title in the 2011 Scorpion Championship, will lead a field of four into the Chameleon Championship finals on Saturday, Nov. 2. ESPN will air the finals on Sunday, Dec. 15, at 1 p.m. ET. Also winning berths in the championship round were Brian Kretzer of Dayton, Ohio; Ryan Ciminelli of Cheektowaga, NY, and 2010 PBA World Champion Tom Smallwood of Saginaw, MI.
Barrett rolled the only 300 game in the semifinal round Monday night, finishing with a 14-game total of 3,246 pins to win the top seed in the stepladder finals by 13 pins over Kretzer, who also is a one-time PBA Tour title winner. Ciminelli, who earned the top berth in the Viper Championship presented by PBA Bowling Challenge Sunday night, is the first player in World Series V to qualify for two telecasts. Smallwood won the fourth spot by four pins over Patrick Allen of Wesley Chapel, FL, who earlier in the round called a foul on himself, costing him a place in the stepladder finals.
“It was a great run, perfect, couldn’t have worked out better,” Barrett said. “I won my title on the old Scorpion pattern, which is very similar to the new Chameleon lane condition, and it really matched up well to my game. I used the knowledge I’ve gotten from bowling in this center before and it helped me a lot.
“I’m over the moon,” he said with a grin. “I’ve bowled the best this week that I’ve ever bowled in my life, and this is the World Series, the biggest event there is. I had a couple of down moments in (the Viper Championship semifinal round) last night, but I went to bed, thought about it and woke up with a new attitude.”
Barrett went into the Viper semifinal round Sunday night as the tournament leader, but fell to 13th place by the end of the round.
Earlier Monday, the field of 235 players completed the third of four qualifying rounds for the PBA World Championship. The combined seven-game qualifying scores from the four animal pattern tournaments – Cheetah, Viper, Chameleon and Tuesday’s Scorpion Championship – will determine the top 24 players who will advance to World Championship round-robin match play on Wednesday and Thursday. After the Chameleon round, Barrett led World Championship qualifying with 5,046 pins, followed by Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, with a 4,905 total and Jason Belmonte of Australia in third place with 4,836 pins.
All qualifying rounds from the World Series are being covered live on PBA’s Xtra Frame online bowling channel, and via “live scoring” on  Tuesday’s schedule includes Scorpion Championship qualifying squads at 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. PT, and the top 24 semifinal round starting at 7:30 p.m.

Ciminelli Tops PBA Viper Championship on Sunday

Ryan Ciminelli of Cheektowaga, NY, with a strike in the 10th frame of his final game Sunday, captured the top berth for the Professional Bowlers Association’s Viper Championship presented by PBA Bowling Challenge at South Point Bowling Center, Las Vegas, NV.
The Viper Championship is the second of five PBA Tour events that compose the PBA World Series of Bowling V.
Ciminelli, who won his only PBA Tour title in the 2011 Earl Anthony Memorial, battled for the lead all day, but didn’t make the move into first place until the final frame of his 14th game. His 268 final game gave him a total of 3,244 pins (231.71 average) and the lead by 18 pins over Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas. England’s Stuart Williams finished third and Australia’s Jason Belmonte earned the fourth berth in the Nov. 2 Viper finals with a 3,178 total, 32 pins ahead of D.J. Archer of Friendswood, Texas, who rolled the only 300 of the Viper event in the final game.

“Considering how demanding the lane conditions were, I threw a lot of strikes,” Ciminelli said. “The lanes were just downright tough, especially after the high scores we had Saturday (in the Cheetah Championship).
“The first three games today, I had the pocket, but I couldn’t knock pins over. I figured the day was going to be short, just like it was Saturday. But I changed balls and the pins started falling. It didn’t matter if I hit the pocket light, heavy, whatever. As long as I kept my feet slow and got the ball out on the lane, everything fell into place.”
NFL all-pro wide receiver Terrell Owens, who is making is professional bowling debut in the World Series, averaged 145.71 on the Viper lane condition Sunday.
“Bad day,” he said. “It’s frustrating because I know I can do better, but it’s all a learning process. I’m a competitive person. I’m not going to give up.”

Parker Bohn III Tops Qualifying For PBA Cheetah Championships

Defending Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) World Champion Parker Bohn III of Jackson, NJ, rolled a pair of 300 games Saturday on his way to earning the top qualifying position for the PBA Cheetah Championship finals at South Point Bowling Center while Colombia native Clara Guerrero became the third woman in PBA history to qualify for a nationally-televised stepladder final.
The Cheetah Championship is the first of five tournaments on the PBA World Series of Bowling V program which continues through Nov. 3.
Bohn, who won the 2012 World Championship during PBA World Series of Bowling IV, fired his 91st and 92nd career 300 games (one behind all-time leader Walter Ray Williams Jr., who has 93 perfect games in PBA competition) for a 14-game total of 3,503 pins and a 250.21 average. The 33-time PBA Tour champion won the top berth in the Cheetah stepladder finals by 49 pins over fellow PBA Hall of Famer and 37-time Tour champion Pete Weber of St. Ann, MO. Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, the 2013 U.S. Open champion, qualified third with 3,452 pins and Guerrero finished her climb from 10th place to claim the fourth berth in the finals with a 3,446 total.
Guerrero will join Kelly Kulick of Union, NJ, and Liz Johnson of Cheektowaga, NY, as the third woman to reach the championship round of a PBA Tour event. Kulick went on to win the 2010 PBA Tournament of Champions to become the only woman to capture a PBA National Tour title.
The Cheetah Championship finals will be conducted on Saturday, Nov. 2, on lanes installed in South Point’s Exhibition Hall B and will air on ESPN on Sunday, Dec. 1, at 1 p.m. ET.
Bohn, who started the semifinal round in fifth place, found his comfort zone and ran away from the field.
“I don’t have many issues with the Cheetah lane condition,” Bohn said. “My speed allowed me to play it comfortably. The lanes were a little tighter than they were in practice, but once I got my speed dialed in, the ball did what it was supposed to do.
“I’m very, very happy,” he added. “Now I get to bowl one game for the title, which is always a good thing. Even better, I’m way ahead of last year when I didn’t have one top 16 finish in any of the animal pattern events, but I still won the World Championship.”
Guerrero’s charge out of 10th place was a surprise to everyone but her. Earlier in the day, she became the second woman in the five-year history of PBA World Series competition to finish among the top 24 in the 238-player, male-dominated event. Kulick finished 15th in the 2010 Shark Championship, seventh in the 2011 Chameleon Championship and 21st in the 2012 Viper Championship. Guerrero also joined an elite group of women who have won a PBA Regional title when she won her first PBA Southwest Region title in Austin, Texas, last October.
“It would be very nice to win a title here, too,” she smiled. “I’d like to finish history the right way.”
Guerrero started her final seven-game round with a 189 game, an ominous total in the high-scoring Cheetah contest, but followed with games of 244, 289, 213, 267, 278 and 277 to complete her stunning rally.
“I was a little stiff from the layoff between the first and semifinal rounds, but then I got my rhythm and made better shots,” the former Wichita State University All-American said. “After the 189 start, I didn’t think I could make it, but after a couple of big games, I saw I had a chance and in the last couple of games, I really went for it. Things came my way. I finished strong. It was great.”

Guerrero, who has been a member of Colombia’s national bowling team since 1995 when she qualified at age 13, is now a U.S. citizen, married and living in Pflugerville, Texas.
Earlier Saturday, National Football League all-pro wide receiver Terrell Owens made his professional bowling PBA debut in the Cheetah Championship, and struggled to finish with a 1,178 total, a 168.29 average. But he said he wasn’t terribly disappointed.
“I got better as I bowled,” Owens said. “I had 194 my last game, which was decent, and I didn’t come in last.
“These are best bowlers in the world. By no means did I expect to come in here and crush the lanes,” Owens added. “Obviously I have a lot of learning to do. But tomorrow is another day and I can only get better.”
World Series competition continues Sunday with the Viper Championship presented by PBA Bowling Challenge. Qualifying squads will bowl seven games at 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. PT, with the top 24 advancing to the seven-game semifinal round at 7:30 p.m. The final two animal pattern events – the Chameleon and Scorpion Championships – will be held on Monday and Tuesday, respectively.
