High RG? Low RG? Flare? Revs? Friction? Inertia? And you thought you would never need to understand math or algebra when you were a kid. Take a good look at the tool on the right (Pro Sect Quarter Scale). And, then take a look at the ball on the left. Yes, a very intricate tool in laying out your new bowling ball!
Drilling angles, coverstock, cores, & oil conditions all have a particular role in how your ball will react not only in one bowling house, but in every house you bowl in. Don't expect one ball to be the cure all if you bowl in more than one league.
Having a great deal of knowledge in each house you bowl in, evaluating the lane conditions you expect to encounter, monitoring reviews by other bowlers, all goes into the successful layout of your bowling ball. Take into consideration that the pro's at ALL STAR BOWLING & TROPHY know many of houses and top rated players who bowl there and their experience, you have a good chance your new ball will be delivered to you in a game ready condition suited to your style of bowling.
A couple things to look for in a new ball selection are coverstock strength & overall hook potential when choosing how your ball will be drilled up.
A combination of how aggressive the balls coverstock is, combined with the RG (Radius of Gyration) rating largely determines the strongest rolling action to a given ball pattern. Low RG rolls quickly in the front and High RG will have good skid distance and keeps its energy on the back end of the lanes.
This is determined by how sharply a bowling ball will hook on the back end of your lanes and is categorized by its flare potential rating. If you use a ball with a 6 inch flare potential, you will have a ball with the strongest back end reaction.
Again the pro's at ALL STAR BOWLING & TROPHY should be your first choice when it comes to making information and purchasing new equipment.
