The Brunswick Rhino bowling ball line is perfect for any entry level bowler or anyone looking for a ball that is not
too reactive on dry or oily parts of the lane. This ball pairs a light bulb core with the R-16 reactive coverstock to
offer a ball that balances power and control.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I loved it as soon as it left my hand! It's a perfect ball I haven't been bowling long but this ball is everything you want and more for the money. Listen to the guy above me!
I'm a senior returning to bowling after a retirement of several years. I had used a Rhino in the past, so this was pretty much a no brainer. Don't listen to that entry level stuff, I've been bowling for 50 years and I know a performance ball when I roll it. This ball has plenty of smooth controllable hook, and it never over reacts. I only use one ball, and the Rhino is that ball. It works on the oil, it loves the dry, and is perfect for spares.
After researching numerous balls, I decided on the Rhino as my first ball. I choose it due to its versatility and potential for a beginner. It does exactly what it says it will. Started learning how to throw a hook and it breaks nicely later down the lane. Bowled my highest game today of 187. If you're looking for a great entry level ball, the Rhino is definitely the ball for you.
The bowling ball has not been used yet.
Threw this ball for the first time and WOW.. Ball is drilled pin above the ring finger. Threw it on a house pattern and this ball reacted amazing playing down the boards 10 out 7 and this Rhino walks right into the pocket. Right when I was expecting it to jump through the nose, it doesn't! Smooth reaction, not jerky. This ball is great for the down and in player and will be great on tournament patterns later on as well when the lanes start to dry up. For the price, you can't go wrong with the Rhino!

do you drill holes? how much do you charge?
Great question shadow7! Unfortunately we do not offer drilling on this ball. You will need to get it drilled at your local pro shop.
Is it a good ball for a lefty
Hello! Balls aren't really made specifically for lefties or righties. That will depend on how your driller drills it, so this should work just fine for lefties in general!
Is it good for beginners
Hello Nate! Yes, this is an entry level performance ball so it is a good ball for beginners who want to start learning how to hook the ball.
I want the ball to break hard at back,what weight block should I GET.
Hello! If you are wanting a ball that breaks hard at the end, I suggest using a Upper Mid Performance ball or a High Performance ball. The entry level balls will only have a slight hook.
Trying to decide between the Brunswick Rhino and the DV8 Outcast for my first bowling ball. I bowl regulars not in a league but am considering joining in the future. I average around 150ish and throw with slight curve. I've been looking at both balls both have great reviews and seem to be top notch entry level balls. Wondering which you would recommend most?
Hello! The Rhinos are the most popular among our entry level balls. At this point, it is just a matter of preference for you.

Which ball is better for someone who throw's a hook. but is not to aggresive. The Rhino/Black/Silver Pearl or the DV8 Red/Electric Blue.
They will pretty much perform the same way so it is whatever your preference is at this time.

This ball will come without holes drilled unless you purchase drilling with Bowling.com.
Starting out and looking to hook. Should I have the balled drilled with full fingers or fitted with finger tips.
That is a better question to ask your local driller.

This would be an excellent ball for a two handed bowler!
what does R-16 Reactive coverstock mean
That is just the name of the coverstock. This will be a reactive coverstock.

This ball will come undrilled unless the drilling has been purchased with the ball.
I throw a straight ball, is this good for that?
This ball will have a slight hook for it is an entry level ball. This ball will not bowl straight.
I am using a ball at the bowling alley that is 15lbs and XXL for the holes. I only see XL as an option how can I guarantee that will fit me?
There is a sizing chart online if you click on the question mark next to the price of drilling, so you can get the size you need.
How do you pick out the weight of the ball?
Whatever weight you are comfortable throwing at the bowling alley is the weight you would probably want to get.
Do you ship to malaysia?
Yes, we do!
Is ball good for two hand bowlers
Yes, that is correct!
I am looking for a good spare ball, is this a good one?
This ball is designed to be an entry performance ball so it has hook potential on lighter oil conditions. Most people prefer their spare ball to go as straight as possible so there are better priced options that just go straight like the Brunswick TZone. But if you want your spare ball to have a little bit of hook potential then this could work possibly for you.
What is drilling protection
The drilling protection option is to cover you when you take the ball to have it drilled locally. If the ball were to chip or crack while it was being drilled then we could replace the ball and refund you for the drilling cost if it was charged. You may click the "?" beside the drilling protection to see more about what this covers.
Buying a bowling ball from my grandson just starting out wanted to know which balls would be the best for him he is having fun trying to hook the ball
This would be a great option for your grandson to learn with!
How does the Brunswick Rhino compare to the Columbia 300 The Beast??
The Columbia 300 Beast is a mid performance ball and would be a bit more agressive compared to the Brunswick Rhino which is an entry level ball.
RHINO BALL IS 13LB HAVE THE SAME CORE AS THE 15LB BALL
Yes, the 12-16lb ball has the light bulb core and the 10 and 11lb removes that light bulb core.
can you drill holes for only two finger? I throw two handed
We can do the two finger drilling but you will need to make sure you mention this when you place the order in the customer comments. If it is not mentioned then the ball will have the standard 3 finger drilling layout.
Does having a light bulb core better than having a remove light bulb core? Cause I use a 11lb ball.
The weight block does help give the ball more hook potential when compared to the ball that does not have performance weight block. However, the coverstock will still give you some hook potential in 11lbs for this ball.
Does this ball hook much?
This ball is considered an entry performance ball and will have hook potential on lighter oil conditions. Compared to other performance balls this ball will not have a high hook potential. However, compared to a house ball or straight ball this will have a decent hook potential when you bowl in lighter oil.
Due to the time it takes to produce the Brunswick Rhino Black/Blue/Silver Pearl ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
