So this means that understanding your house oil conditions, along with knowing your skill level, will help you choose the bowling ball that's right for you!..

What does RG stand for? Well RG means Radius of Gyration. (1) USBC defines RG of a bowling ball as a measurement in inches and is the distance from the axis of rotation at which the total mass of a body might be concentrated without changing its moment of inertia. Think of it like a Football. It can spin happily end over end or as a spiral.

So this means the end over end axis is the High RG plane and the spiral axis is the Low RG plane. The difference in those two axis RG values gives you your Differential. When you see the RG number on a ball advertised they are giving you the Low RG plane number. Now Differential is the driving force that causes track flare...
