Bowling balls are available with a wide range of options. Such options
as coverstock, weight block, top weight, and pin location to name a few.
With so many variables, how do you choose the right one for you? Many
factors, should be considered when making a decision on your next bowling
ball purchase.

Let’s briefly breakdown what each of the above mentioned terms mean in
reference to bowling balls.

-Coverstock is essentially to outer surface of the bowling ball that
creates the shell. Typically, the coverstock can either be dull or shiny
on a bowling ball.

-A weight block is the core of the bowling ball. Depending on the shape
and density of the weight block, it can influence the reaction of the
bowling ball.

-Top weight is the core variation within the bowling ball. If the core
is higher in the ball, it produces a higher top weight. If the core is
lower, then the bowling ball will have a lower top weight.

-Pin location simply designates the location of the top of the weight
block in a bowling ball.

These definitions simply apply to the bowling ball itself. What factors
not related to the make/model of the bowling ball? For this we are
referring to factors such as your bowling game itself. Things such as
ball speed, track flare, axis tilt, etc all play an important role in
bowling. Each person has their own unique way of bowling. Knowing your
game and style will make it easier for you to make the proper selection
when buying a new bowling ball.

Below is a brief breakdown of a few key definitions.
-Ball Speed is simply the speed at which you roll your bowling ball.
Many of the newer scoring systems measure the speed of your bowling ball.
However, not all are 100% accurate, but it can give you a general idea of
what the speed is.

-Track flare is the “oil rings” that appear on your bowling ball after
you throw it. These rings show the progression of the rotation of your
ball as it is rolling down the lane and the ball changing its axis of
rotation while seeking its preferred spin axis.

-Axis tilt is the angle of rotation of the bowling ball.

Depending on your style and lane conditions, making the right decision
can be tricky at times. The easiest and best way to decide which bowling
ball is right for you is to visit your local bowling pro shop. Many pro
shop owners have been around the game of bowling for quite some time.
With their knowledge and experience, as well as watching you bowl, they
can give you strong recommendations on which bowling ball will suit your
game.

However, not every bowling center has an on-site pro shop. Luckily the
internet provides a plethora of information regarding bowling balls.
Many of the manufacturer sites provide in depth analysis of reactions and
characteristics and even a few videos with the bowling balls in action.
Customer reviews found on various bowling ball message forums can also
provide real life insight as to what a particular bowling ball can do on
certain lane conditions. There are even a few retail sites that provide
bowling ball reviews, which are customer reviews for various products.

As you can see the internet can be an excellent resource in helping you
determine which bowling balls will take your game to the next level.
