Bowling Ball Material
Bowling ball material
may be thought of as two independent components of a bowling ball, the coverstock
and the inner-core
material. Bowling ball material is essentially all poly-urethane based products. These products include additive materials and curing process variations, particularly for the coverstocks, yielding calculated designs in the final bowling ball construction.
The industry refers to various coverstock
blends, however, in the following way: plastic, urethane, reactive resin, hybrid reactive, and particle materials. Each of these coverstock material variations yields to the performance range capabilities a given bowling ball possesses.
Typically, the plastic
coverstocks are found in entry performance balls available in 10 lbs – 16 lb. weight, the reactive resin
coverstocks are found in general performance range balls from 12 – 16 lbs., and hybrid
coverstocks in pro performance range bowling balls from 12 – 16 lbs.
Naturally, the coverstock is the most important factor in determining the right choice of ball for you but don’t overlook the importance of the inner core
designs. Manufacturers will design cores made of urethane
based products in varying density ranges, shapes, and sizes so the end result will influence the overall ball motion predictably as it travels down the lane.
