It becomes easy to see that high averages have been inflated with the introduction of the high tech bowling ball.
In no way can one assume that the bowler of today can actually shoot any better than those of forty years ago. The bowling
balls of today are on steroids......starting with urethane to the now super reactive resin. Imagine if those old-timers
had the bowling balls that we now take for granted. It becomes important that we do not become complacent about
our ability by assuming that the lack of accuracy can be overcome by the ball's ability to cover area. Have we allowed
the bowling ball to assume the ability that we should ourselves develop? Tony Campos
