Looking for an entry level bowling ball or a ball that is not going to react strongly to the dry or oily parts of the lane? Then look no further than the Brunswick Rhino bowling ball. This line of bowling balls balances power and control by pairing the R-16 reactive coverstock and a light bulb shaped core.
Been struggling with my higher end balls over hooking, can’t find a good line for more than a few shots. House seems much drier. A lot of over under. Anyway, bought this Rhino to help me not lose my mind with frustration! Played this straight up the second arrow area. The Rhino goes straight and long and it just makes a nice move down lane and hits with a ton of power still. Nothing fancy, just a nice motion toward the pocket. Drilled mine for max length, pin above bridge, but it still covers quite a few boards, but not jumpy. Very smooth. A LOT of performance for the price. “Entry level” labels are kind of deceiving. Should just say “less overall hook” because this ball will make you look like you’ve been bowling for years if used in the right conditions. I’m very very happy with it.
I was looking for decent Ball for 3rd Game When lanes are Burned out. This ball works for Me.
It's a great beginner ball. I got my wife one and she loves the consistent feel of it.
What is the best approach and aiming point to get this ball to hit the pocket from the correct angle. I can't seem to get it to hook more than two inches. Should I bowl a tight line, or move further right (I am right handed) to get an angle into the pocket.
There are a lot of variable to consider on this. This ball will probably hook the best in lighter oil conditions and if you are in more medium oil or higher then it may not give you a lot of hook. Also, I am not sure if your rev rate or ball speed is helping or hurting the ability of the ball to hook. If you find a place that you feel comfortable standing and find an arrow that you feel comfortable with throwing toward, you can try that first. If you miss to the right of the pocket then move your feet right but keep aiming at the same arrow. Do this until you get the ball to get to the pocket.
How’s hole sizing determined?
Can I make payments on this ball
Can I buy this ball with no holes drilled in it?
Yes, this ball starts out without holes. We have an option for some weights to add drilling for an extra fee but you can say no to this option if you do not want it drilled.
Is this ball a solid?
This ball has a R-16 Reactive coverstock. I am not sure that if that is a solid or pearl unfortunately but if this is a solid reactive it is designed to have a lot of length due to the strength of the ball and the polished finish so it will react more similar to a pearl cover.
I’m a natural hook left handed bowler. I need a ball that gradually hooks and snaps at the pocket. What do you recommend?
This ball is designed to have a hook potential on lighter oil conditions. It will go down the lane fairly straight for most of the lane and then have a backend snap hook at the end of the lane. So if you needed something for lighter oil conditions this may be a good fit.
What size hole does this ball have preset to it for 10 lbs,
This ball does not have preset holes drilled. We offer drilling for some of the balls depend on the availability but the drilling will be for an extra fee. If you do not select for us to do the drilling the ball will come without holes and you can have it drilled at a local proshop.

What is drilling protection?

How much more response in terms of curve can I expect us I need a rhino as opposed to a rack ball
House balls do not have any feature that would help give them hook potential. This ball has a coverstock designed to give you hook potential and a weight block inside to give you hook potential so it is a pretty noticeable step up from a house ball.
Is there such thing as an XXL size of the finger holes? If so could I have them on a ball I would like to order from you?
Unfortunately we do not have an XXL option at this time so if the XL measurements would not work you may prefer to decline our drilling and have the ball drilled at your local proshop.
Do the 10 - 11 & 12 lb balls have the bulb weight block?
