Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great for a beginner

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.

Talk about bang for your buck!!

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!

Excellent Value

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.

Question:

Is it a good ball for a lefty

6/23/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

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!

Question:

I want the ball to break hard at back,what weight block should I GET.

9/2/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

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.

Question:

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?

10/22/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Hello! The Rhinos are the most popular among our entry level balls. At this point, it is just a matter of preference for you.

Question:

I am looking for a good spare ball, is this a good one?

8/16/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

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.

Question:

What is drilling protection

11/4/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

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.

Question:

Does having a light bulb core better than having a remove light bulb core? Cause I use a 11lb ball.

3/6/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

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.
