Question:

It says the core gas mask will give the ball more good and weight motion. But you have said in comments that this ball will roll straight. Which one is true?

5/9/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Compared to other plastic balls, this would have more hook potential because it has a weight block and most other plastic balls have a pancake core. Compared to performance bowling balls, this will be much weaker and is still considered a spare ball because of how much weaker it is.

Question:

If you have a high rev rate will you still be able to hit the 10 pin

9/2/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

You could still get this to work for 10 pins but because it has a weight block it could give you a little movement on the backend. The straightest spare ball would be one that did not have a weight block so if you wanted to get one that is the straightest option that may be better for 10 pins with a high rev rate.

Question:

If I am use to bowling a 13ibs but want to get drill work later in order for the ball to hook, should I get a 14ibs to have it feel like a 13ibs after custom work is done?

1/2/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Usually when you get the finger holes drilled it will only take out a few ounces at most so you could still order a 13lbs ball and on the final review page you can add a comment that you want the ball to be around 13lbs 3 ounces so we can find a ball that will be closer to 13lbs after you get it drilled.
