  1. Looking forward to hearing and watching this. This question is too frequently answered with guilting the would-be urethane user, for ruining the shot for all other bowlers, whether they be teammates or opponents. Hopefully, the answer will be based on what works best for an individual bowler, not what doesn’t work for everyone else. Urethane should be viewed as nothing more than one more bowling tool and option.

    1. I don’t know the exact number but I’m a low to mid rev lefty with mid to high speed and yes two pink widow and purple Hammer (bowl mainly on sport patterns)

    2. If I had to guess my rev rate is 250ish(haven’t calculated, but it’s low-mid). My speed is 17mph and I do have a urethane, a Pitch Black with the pin below the bridge. Very smooth and controllable, my favorite reaction and I love when I am able to use it

    3. High rev rate [don’t know exact number] near 15mph. Pitch Black, Purple Hammer, Pink Widow Urethane, UC3, Badger Infused, Purple Tank. I know the Desert Tank doesn’t count nor does the Blue Tank, but some people “consider” it urethane.

    4. Not really sure what my accurate rev rate is. Used the Bowler ID tool a few years ago and it said around 215. Having a really hard time believing that, as it seems way too low. Unfortunately, I don’t bowl on different patterns at the moment but, would love to challenge myself on them. I’m sure it would help me understand my own game more. Awesome video though. Really enjoyed the look you had with the UC3.

  2. Lefty, low rev rate bowler but do not know the exact number. I bowl with a Purple Hammer, Zen Master and a Nova. 😁

  3. My rev rate is around 300 and I have a fast pitch, I originally got it for spares but I have used it on shorter stuff and our wood lane center with more friction

  4. im a two hander with rev rate around mid300s. i want to have a urethane ball soon, thinking of the purple hammer

  5. 370ish rev rate. Urethane is my favorite thing in the world. I have a uc3 and a pitch black, I would not do nearly as good as I do in tournaments without them, plus I’ve found myself gradually using urethane over strong reactives on meds and longs. Still gravitate towards reactive but urethane is just too good

  6. Because of a permanent injury to my right wrist, I decided to try switching to bowling left handed. My average righty was 190. It has not been an easy transition to bowling lefty, let me assure you. My love for the game kept me striving toward the goal of at least getting my average to where it was right handed and beyond. Okay, what has this got to do with urethane? Well, I’ve been using a Pitch Black the entire time. It allows me to stay left and keep the ball in front of me during my left handed journey. With urethane I know where the ball will go as soon as it passes the arrows. Reactive is too strong for me right now. My lefty average currently stands somewhere between 160 and 170. In the first couple of weeks of bowling lefty it was 130. And my lefty journey continues…

  7. LP reacted d ryt way, she is QUINZAA.Monster need of over drama, or over consider ations. She don’t deserve *considerationsb. Lp പറഞ്ഞ പോലെ,, ജീവിതം തുടങ്ങിയല്ലേ ഉള്ളു, പഠിക്കട്ടെ.

  8. ~300 rev rate – ~ 18.5 mph off the hand. I don’t have a urethane. UC3 would be the one I’d get if any, I just have never run into a situation where I need a urethane. We bowled on 33′ Cheetah 2 weeks ago and my Venom Shock with polish looked great.

  11. I just got a urethane a few days ago and noticed some wonky entry angle shenanigans leaving a few 10s after hitting the pocket, hopefully this video helps!

  12. I’m definitely not a high rev guy and throw my purple hammer up 9 on house shots all the time. Works just fine for me

  13. My rev is slightly lower (approx 275-300) and would definitely consider a UC3 for our short pattern for that blended urethane/pearl coverstock and reaction

  14. Appreciate this video as I’ve never thought someone like me low rev, would get much use with a urethane except maybe for spares. I have used the Helios on a 33 foot sport shot and it worked really well playing next to the gutter and up the middle.

  15. My UC3 hooks about 3 to 4 boards more than my Dark Code. I got it when it first came out thinking it should hook less and I would be able to use it on dryer lanes. My jaw dropped when I threw it down the lane for the first time and the lane was very well used. This ball is a monster on medium oil.
