When you first start bowling Cheap
William Nylander Jersey
, more often than not, you are never given
any instructions on how to choose a bowling ball. It's not like playing a board
game where all of the rules are nicely spelled out for you. When you first start
bowling, knowing how to choose the right bowling ball can mean the difference
between having a great experience and having a relatively frustrating
If you have chosen a good bowling ball, you will concentrate
less on how the ball feels in your hand and more on proper bowling technique.
Technique, for a beginner Cheap
Connor Brown Jersey
, is more important, to a certain extent, than
the ball you are using.
If you are new to bowling then you most likely do
not have your own bowling ball. so, when you do bowl you will be stuck choosing
your ball from those that are available at the bowling alley. Bowling balls
provided by bowling alleys, known as house balls Cheap
James Van Riemsdyk Jersey
, do not have a reputation of being of
the best quality.
Looking for a house ball that perfectly suits you is
similar to looking for the perfect pool que at the local pub. The perfect house
ball simply does not exist. You are more likely to get close to perfection if
you know what to look for in a good house ball. There are three things you
should concentrate on when choosing a house ball; the balls weight, the balls
grip, and the balls coverstock.
Bowling balls range in weight from six
pounds to sixteen pounds. The weight of the bowling ball that you choose for
yourself should depend heavily on two factors; your strength and how well you
can control the ball. Many beginners when choosing a bowling ball just pick it
up and decide whether or not it is too heavy for them.
To help determine
the proper weight ball you should take a few practice shots with the ball.
During the practice shots if you are straining to pull the ball back in your arm
swing then the ball is too heavy. If you strain to pull the ball back in a
controlled manner you will lower your shoulder, your elbow will pop out to the
side, and your back will arch to the side of your bowling arm. This is natural
body mechanics. But Cheap
Nikita Zaitsev Jersey
, straining in this way will throw off your
bowling technique and ruin your game.
By the same token, during your
practice shots, if the ball feels if it has no weight to it then it is obviously
too light. You would think that using a ball that is too light would not be a
bad thing. But, using a ball that is too light becomes a control issue. Unless
you are skilled and have a lot of physical control you will power through a
bowling ball that is too light and overshoot the shot.
A balls weight is
important. But, it is not the most important aspect to choosing a good house
ball. In my opinion Cheap
Patrick Marleau Jersey
, the grip of a house bowling ball is the
most important aspect of choosing a bowling ball. If the holes of the bowling
ball are too loose or too tight they will affect how you release the ball. How
you release the ball is single most important factor in how well you can throw a
bowling ball. Releasing a bowling ball is the last facet of control you have
over the ball itself. After the ball is released, when it meets the lane, you no
longer have any control over it.
You will never find a perfectly drilled
bowling ball. That is unless it was drilled specifically for you. Here are a few
rules of thumb for determining a good grip. You should not have to grip the ball
tightly through your bowling swing. When you start your swing the ball should
rest easily on your thumb. As you work through the swing inertia should
distribute the weight of the ball easily between your fingers and thumb. If on
the down swing you have to grip the ball to hold on to it, then the holes are
too big. If the holes pull at all on release then they are too small. The weight
of the ball should stay evenly distributed, between the finger and
thumb Cheap Zach
, through the entire swing.
A final aspect you
should keep in mind when choosing a bowling ball. Avoid balls with divots and
nicks. Even if the are very small they will still affect the roll of the ball.
Just like the bend of the pool que at the local pub. It can still be used but
the outcome of the shot is unpredictable.
I hope this little practical
guide has shed some light on the different things you should consider when
choosing a bowling ball the next time you are at the bowling alley.
