Which bowling ball is for you? Let me help you!

The key to choosing the right bowling ball is understanding the differences between them and knowing what you are trying to achieve within the life of your new bowling ball. Through the use of the 4 main types of bowling balls for many years, I conclude that Reactive Resin is the best type of bowling ball to choose. Shopping through the eleven different brands from 900 Global to Brunswick, it might be hard to just stop and stare at that pretty bowling ball that you glance upon.

There is ideally five steps to choosing your right fit to a bowling ball. For one, finding your ideal weight ball, one that’s not too heavy but one that’s not too light to where if you would throw it, it wouldn’t have the weight to perform. Two, determine the cover stock for the type of lanes you will be throwing on, the oil patterns. There are three main types; polyester (plastic), urethane, and reactive resin. Three, choose the ball you want now that you know the weight and cover stock you need. Four, you need to get it fit around your hand, taking it to a bowling alley would be the best idea for drilling the balls. Five, just remember that getting used to a new ball, when you first hold a drilled ball fit to your hand, only because most balls that you’ve used before doesn’t actually really fit. So, be patient.

The 3 top brands that I choose to be the best are Brunswick, Columbia 300, and Storm. Why you ask? Brunswick drills and tests hundreds of bowling balls per year to give their subscribers the best information available on the last bowling balls to hit the market and they are a trusted partner of thousands of pro shops, coaches, and serious bowlers for over 20 years. Not only does Columbia 300 have the newest top bowling ball releases as well, but this type of bowling ball brand has the best friction in the lanes. As a former bowler, I know the oil can be a little messy and over oiled at times and with this brand of ball it is finished with the 2000 Abralon finish, which creates the cover to be successful for all on heavy and long patterns of oil. Storm is rated the first out of 10 for best bowling balls, it is a hard-hitting option that has a dual drive core, with two weight blocks to give it fast revving action and greater energy when it hits the pins.

I hope this helped just a little on your journey to finding the right ball!

#1 Ebonite Maxim

Ebonite Maxim has a polyester cover stock that is very well balanced for a straight and true roll. It is a good mid-level option that should help you improve your score a bit as you start to pick up more advanced techniques, and the cost is easy on the wallet.

#3 Hammer Gauntlet

Hammer Gauntlet has a coverstock that is designed for heavy oiled lanes and will speed down the lane faster to avoid most of the pattern of other balls from the oil, which is based off the carbon infused core for added strength and durability, making it a good ball for experienced bowlers.

#6 DV8 Vandal Destroy

DV8 Vandal Destroy works the most control on medium-level oiled lanes where it is available to catch a good roll, but is versatile enough to work on many different lane conditions due to the smooth hybrid composite that makes it a clean roll at the front.
