When you think of the sport of bowling what is the first thing you think of? For me it’s the actual bowling ball. You can’t do anything until you have that.
You can’t knock down any pins…nothing. I’ve played this game since I was a kid. I actually played in a league when I was in the 5th grade. Can you believe that!
In college I even took a course in bowling and that’s when I first learned how to spin the ball. To this day I’m still working on my technique.
Okay, so why would you buy your own? There are several reasons and I want to share those with you so you can be better informed when looking at bowling balls for sale:
- You won’t have to search all over the alley for one each time.
- Alley balls have scratches, dents and are old.
- A new one will improve your game almost immediately.
- A customized one will fit your fingers and hand better.
- Because of the way they’re made the newer ones will allow you to knock over more pins.
Those are just a few of the reasons for you to consider. Even if you are a casual player those reasons still apply.
Here are some tips for you to consider when buying a bowling ball.
- Weight: Get one that you can handle. Don’t get a heavy ball just because you think you are strong. Find one you can control easily.
- Style: Do you really like to hook the ball using power in your arms or not so much? You can find balls with different differentials.
- Budget: How much do you want to spend? Don’t get a cheap one just to get one. Don’t get the most expensive one because you think it will perform the best.
Where should you buy one from? That’s easy for me to recommend because I like to shop at the place where it’s cheaper, free shipping and lots of user comments to help me decide what to buy. Amazon.
