DOES THIS BALL HAVE A HOOK
This will be a straight ball that will only bowl straight. It is a spare ball.
is this cover stock harder than most plastic balls?
Yes, that is correct. It has a harder polyester coverstock than the other plastic balls.
Does this spare ball has a pin?
Spare balls do not have pin locations.
Can you always bowl with this ball and no other balls
Yes, that is correct. This ball will only bowl straight.
Is ebonite a good brand of bowling ball?
Ebonite is one of the largest bowling brands in the industry and Ebonite International includes brand like Columbia, Hammer, and Track in their company.
Even though this is a spare ball, can you use this ball for your first roll or no?
Yes, you may use this as a strike ball if you like to throw the ball straight. It is only listed as a spare ball to differentiate it from the performance hook bowling balls.
Why do you say this is a straight ball? I have bowled with it and had no problems making it hook.
This ball does not have any features that help give this ball hook potential. The coverstock is not designed to hook and the weight block is not designed to help the ball hook. So the hook that you may get on this is if the lanes are lighter oil to drier conditions and/or if you have a high rev rate then you may get some movement on this.
My local pro shop does not give guarantees on 6lb balls and I have had 2 that cracked. I use 6 lb balls since I am a 5ft senior citizen. Do you have a warranty on 6 lb balls.
Unfortunately 6lb balls are starting to not have warranties if the ball has adult drilling. The 8lb ball will be covered under warranty and have a much better chance of not cracking but 6lbs are less dense and more likely to crack.
How to determine what size you need ball drilled
If we offer drilling on the weight you need then you may click the "?" beside the drilling option to pull up a size chart. The size chart will show you the measurements for the hole size which is the diameter of the hole and then the span which is the distance from the finger hole to the thumb hole.
Due to the time it takes to produce the Ebonite Maxim Captain Odyssey ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
