How to choose and use equipment: A large part in becoming a better bowler is having the right piece of equipment. Our experts will help you pick the right equipment, taking into account all the factors from your goals down to you specific fit and drilling layout of the ball.
Fitting/Drilling: Your ball should be drilled to meet the specification of your hand. Every bowling ball we drill is custom fit to the exact specifications of the bowler. Not only is this important in order to obtain accuracy, precision and consistency when bowling, but it is also important in eliminating tension on your hand and wrist as well as wear and tear on your hand while bowling.
There are a number of reasons its important to maintain your bowling equipment. The most important aspects of maintain your equipment are longevity and consistency. By properly maintaining and cleaning your equipment you will extend the life of that equipment dramatically. Cleaning and maintaining your bowling ball will also result in more consistent performance. As you use your equipment it will naturally pick up and absorb oil and dirt from the lane and machines. This has a negative impact on the way the bowling ball is designed to perform. Therefore, it is important to maintain the surface of your bowling ball, which you can do a number of different ways. Cleaning your equipment on a regular basis will extent the life of the bowling ball and keep it reacting consistently on the lane. We also offer service such as oil extraction and resurfacing to rejuvenate equipment that has been neglected. As bowling balls age, even when maintained properly, they will need to be rejuvenated in order to continue to perform as they were intended.
Resurfacing: It's important to clean you ball after each use, to keeps its pores open and free of dirt and debris. After enough use, however, even the most well-cared for bowling balls will begin to have its pores clogged by oil and dust. Thats why its important to periodically get your bowling ball resurfaced. The process of resurfacing sands down the outer layer of the ball, removing the dirt and oil that is clogging the pores of the bowling ball
Oil Extraction: Modern bowling balls are designed to absorb oil, making the more reactive on tha lane in oily conditions. Unfortunately, this characteristic may cause the ball to absorb too much oil over time. This causes the bowling ball to lose the ability to grip the lane and create friction, which makes the ball hook. Depending on the usage of your bowling equipment, you may want to have the oil extracted
General Cleaning: It is important to clean your bowling ball frequently. We suggest at the very least that you wipe down your ball after each bowling session. This will minimize the amount of dirt and oil that sits on the ball and consequently absorbs into the ball between uses and over time. There are a number of cleaning products that help in this area. Ask our experts for suggestions.
