If you are 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 the Brunswick Rhino might be perfect for you. This ball balances power and control with the combination of the R-16 reactive coverstock and a light bulb core.
A 2 handed review here^ for young power players, I’m able to play a line that’s about 39 (+/-5) out to 6 and the reaction is really good (I have a really odd drilling on mine I forgot what it is specifically)
Love the bowling ball works for me thats all I can say
A lot milder
A total shocker for an entry level ball. If you're looking for control and predictability this is your ball. This ball truly shines on lighter oil patterns and is very angular off the spot for me. It allows me to play my A game when the fronts are pretty stripped and it hits like a truck. This can be a great ball for a league bowler looking to get into reactive cover stock equipment and can be a bench mark ball for league. Overall this ball is great for different levels of competition.
I bought a Rhino, am learning to bowl & was told by store owner it was a good entry to hook. Can't line it up in my hand to where my wrist is flat. My wrist is twisted outwardly & hurts to hold it that way. I can't line up my 2 fingers in the holes with the arrows. My index finger is lining up with the arrows instead of between mt 2 fingers that goes in the holes. It won't hook. Goes in the gutter mostly bc i can't line it up. It sticks to my fingers when i release it & would pull me over the foul line if i didn't hold on to the wall next to me. My index finger is hurt at the outside top nail area, like an ingrown toenail, from trying to hold the ball wher my wrist is flat. What on earth am i doing wrong?
Hello DaRenda. I'm sorry for the trouble you are having. It will be hard to know what this could be without being in person and without being able to inspect the ball. Your best option may be to talk to a local proshop owner to see if they can find a solution or find the problem for you. If you have a spot on your finger that is rubbing you could try to use a protecting tape to help on this but that would be the only thing we could help with since we are not in person too see more.

Would the 10 pound ball have a shaped core so that it will hook?
Is this a good ball for a novice with a 100 average, who bowls straight down the middle on a medium oily surface? Also, is this a plastic ball?
As a begginer dose this ball hook at 14lbs
Hello Steve! This is a beginner ball, and therefore should not have a very high hook. Depending on how you throw the ball, there may be just a slight hook.
I rev the ball quite a bit, looking for a ball I can control better on dry lane conditions or when the oil breaks down. Would this be a good ball for this?
I bowled with a 14# Hammer many years ago. Now I am older and have balance issues. I can not get much curve anymore and want to change to a 12# ball. Would this ball work for me? I throw a very strong ball and I think that it hits before the curve starts. Any suggestions?
I throw a straight ball will this ball work for ne
If you throw a straight ball, you will want to look at our spare/plastic ball for this ball is an entry level ball that will have a slight hook.
Hello: I'm a senior, a "full-roller", and therefore prefer to throw a smaller hooking ball. I use to throw 14# balls, but after my back surgery I had to change to 13# balls. The pro shop I go to recommended that I use "entry level balls" because I'm a full-roller. Is that true?
If you were not wanting a lot of hook the entry level performance balls would be a good option for this. Also when you drop into 13lbs your higher performance balls will often change the weight block to something that is more generic so in 13lbs the difference between an entry performance and mid performance is not as big of a gap. Just make sure they drill the ball for full roller and you should be fine.
