Disappointing.


I bought this skin protection tape to cover a spot on my thumb that's been getting some serious friction recently. Before this, I'd used some Turbo Mint tape that a couple guys at the pro shop loaned me and it had worked well. However, I decided to give Brunswick a try since they were a little cheaper and I liked their other kinds of tape.


Bad idea. This tape peeled off my skin quickly and constantly. It just Would. Not. Stick. I have pretty sweaty hands, so any tape that I use is going to go through some wear and tear, but the Turbo tape I'd bought before was much, much, stronger and hung on strong no matter how many games I bowled. This stuff started peeling after one frame.


I wouldn't recommend this tape to anyone whose hands get moist, or to anyone at all actually.

I know this ball isn't available on this site, but I'm still going to write a review, b/c I want to promote this ball as much as I can.

I've only been bowling for 2 months (3 months technically, but for the first couple weeks my thumb was so loose I wouldn't even call what I was doing bowling.) Anyway, this ball was drilled with just a standard lay-out, since I (still) don't know what my PAP is.

Even though it's not tricked out for me, this ball still performs so well. For an entry level product, this thing can HOOK. I actually found myself able to play to the right (I'm a leftie) past the headpin at times. And today, I bowled a 210 with it! This thing will carry like a beast, I found myself getting strikes on shots that weren't even that good.

This is a great ball for any beginner and even any intermediate or advanced players looking for a new piece. I highly recommend it.
