This week (17-20 July) I was bowling the USA Las Vegas Team Championship and using the Edge I shot 260, 236, 300 for 796 and unofficially our team is sitting in second place $10000. I only used the Hyper Cell, Defiant Edge, and Uproar the entire four days and averaged over 240 for 24 games.

It has been about 9 months since I last threw a 300, but while my Mom was visiting for Christmas, I was able to finally do it again. This one was the most nervous I had ever been, because I wanted to do it in front of my mother. It had always been, I bowl a 300, and I then call her to tell her. This time, she got to see it for herself, and it meant so much to me to be able to do it for her, and end 2013 on such a high note.

Last week of summer league and I bowled 197,242,299. Bowled in a House that I only bowl in the summer. Local house doesn't have a summer league. And before I bowled that night I told myself that I wanted to bowl over a 700 series. But didn't know I was going to come close to my First ever 300 game.
300-856 with Defiant Edge!

On April 8, 2013, I bowled my first 300 and 700 series, 709. Thanks to my coach/pro-shop tech Joey Kendrick for suggesting the Defiant Edge and for starting me on Roto Grip equipment those 5 long years ago!
Defiant Edge = front 25 for Jodi Sabalauskas
Date: 3.28.2013 Bowler: Jodi Sabalauskas Location: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Pro Shop: North Star Pro Shop - Fairlawn, OH / Don Hogue
On 3/27/13 talented PA female bowler Jodi Sabalauskas showed up to bowl her usual Wed. Night Miller Classic league at Brunswick Playmor Bowl in Pittsburgh, PA. Little did she know she was about to accomplish something that is rarely done even today in the era of countless award scores. Already having rolled three 300 games this league season, she started quick with 300 game #4. It didn't stop there, she kept the Defiant Edge rolling strong and finished game two with another 300 game. Raising her total to five 300s on the season. But as fate would have it she sarted the last game with one strike before a pesky 7-pin ended her perfect night to that point. Although it didn't finish out like she had hoped, none the less she started with the front 25 for a personal best she will never forget!
Defiant Edge Rocks!

I shot an 806 series with the Defiant Edge in a local 600 club tournament, featuring scores of 279, 269, and 258
"This ball gets down lane very well and makes a strong turn to the pocket when it comes off the pattern. This set was rolled on a 40' house pattern. The ball was at box finish, 1500 grit polished. This ball continues right through the pins. Does not quit!

"Switched back to Roto Grip and I am back to shooting big scores. The 855 (277-300-278) series I shot was the second highest ever in my city, one pin shy of the 856 shot by the owner of the local bowling center."
Perfect with Defiant Edge!

My daughter just came here from Panama to see me for the first time. I had to bowl league and she came with me, first night seeing me and seeing me bowl..I bowl a 300 with the Defiant Edge. She has since seen me bowl games of 298, 290, 279(2x) and back to back 277's with that ball, all in 5 weeks. Amazing.
Defiant Edge = 300

It was October 13 1993 when I rolled my first sanctioned 300. Since then two 299's and three 290's. I thought I may never see 12 sanctioned stikes again, until today (11/25/2012) using a DEFIANT EDGE I was finally able to see what 300 feels like again! I am sure after today that it will not take another 19 years to get #3. ROTO GRIP RULES!

Situation: 2nd Game, standing 27 crossing 12 at the arrows.
First 3 strikes flush in the pocket. 4th strike carried late 10 pin (ball burning up). Options to stay with ball or change to my Mutant Cell Pearl. Decided to stay with Defiant Edge and start moving one board left with feet for each frame. 5th and 6th strike flush. 7th strike, ball moved a little early causing a little heavy pocket hit but carrying the late 4 pin. 8th strike, made 2 board left move with my feet but tugged the ball in, hitting more oil volume and causing the ball to hit the pocket with a little fade but carried the late 10 pin. 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th strikes flush, breaking my 6 1/2 drought. Even better, I was wearing my Roto Grip shirt instead of my team shirt by mistake.
