Since this is the real bowlers website. I trust that you all have knowledge of the game when it comes to the equipment we use. Well lets talk about it. To all you high rollers who are sponored lets not full this discussion with shameless plugs! I am wondering what are your favorite balls. Here are some of mine. Track Up-rising: the ball I shot my first 300 with. Ebonite playmaker: I shot my first and at this point only 800. Ebonite pinslasher same core as the playmaker but with stonger cover. Hammer onyx vibe Reads the lane very well and does what we all love...carries! Ebonite the one (encore) and nvd the lower rg of these balls helps to read the lane earlier but the a explosive breakpoint they bring a ton to the party. I dont own one but I do like the way the storm hyroad is a all around performer. I have seen various people of different styles use them. The same can be said of the Columbia cool noize. Anyway, what method do you go by when you choose your balls. Me personally, I swear by bowlers journal, (although I think they are bias to brunswick equipment). Well thats my time thanks for reading and please add to the discussion.

I decided years ago to stick with one ball manafucturer and build an arsenal. I choose Visionary after tossing the Warlock DC. Working with Dan Bearden and Frankie May, I was able to learn the basics of core/cover relationship, as well as reading. A great book to find and read is Revolutions, it helps give the bowler an understanding of the complete dynamics of the bowling ball. Currently, I have an Orge (orange) for my heavy oil shot, Gladiator Solid for med/heavy shot, Purple Orge for med/light shot, Bronze AMB Centaur for my skid/snap shot, finally a dull and polished Urethane Orge for house/breakdown shots. Unfortunately due to Visionary being unable to find a producer of plastic balls, I have a T-Zone for spare shooting. Hope it doesn't sound like an advertisement for Visionary, just a decision I made and have stuck with for over 15yrs. I think most would agree, they prefer to stay with a particular manufacturer when it come to ball choice. Still no 800 series (PB 767), 4 300's (1st with Burgundy Hammer, 2nd Visionary Charcoal Executioner, 3rd Burgundy Gryphon, 4th Slate Blue Gargoyle). I think that most any ball on the market, drilled up correctly for a particular shot will do great, it is all about matching up ball vs. lane and the individual excuting the shot needed.
