Bowling equipment choices will make or break your ability to score higher in the sport of bowling. When you use the right equipment and especially the right bowling ball it can make scoring higher much easier. All bowlers can improve their chances of scoring higher by knowing more about their bowling equipment.
Impact of the bowling ball on scoring
A bowling ball that fits your hand and is the right weight goes a long way to making it easier to throw better shots. Another factor that impacts your score in a big way is the amount of friction the ball can generate as it rolls down the lane, but this only applies if you have learned how to hook a bowling ball. Finally, the bowling ball core combined with the drilling layout have an impact on scoring because this influences the shape of the hook and the way a bowling ball hooks into the pocket.
Bowling shoes impact on your bowling form
Bowling shoes are the next most important piece of equipment to own by a bowler. The shoes don’t have to be the most expensive to work for you. Pete Weber used very basic bowling shoes to win 10 major bowling titles. That works for some bowlers, but most bowlers find an advantage in the adjustable slide type of bowling shoes. A consistently good slide is a critical stage in your bowling delivery because it happens at the same time as the most important part of your delivery which is the bowling release.
Bowling accessories to refine your game
Some of the bowling accessories that can help you the most are sanding pads and polish for the bowling ball or multiple bowling balls that you own. Cloth tape will protect your thumb and help you with a consistent release. Finger and thumb hole tape helps to adjust the size of the holes of the bowling ball for a more perfect fit and therefore can help with a more consistent release. Also, rosins and powders help many bowlers with a better grip on the ball. These are just some of the useful accessories available.
