American Made Bowling Balls
If you are searching for American made bowling balls, you can’t miss finding them right here at our site. Brands such as Motiv, 900 Global, Roto Grip, and the majority of balls Storm (with the exclusion of the Ice Storm and Tropical line), are produced in America.
What might be interesting is to learn a bit about how they are manufactured
to guide you in your selection process? So, let’s proceed with some general information; there are two independent components of a bowling ball, the coverstock material and the inner-core material. Bowling ball coverstocks are essentially all poly-urethane based products. These products include additive materials and curing process variations which chiefly determine the final outcome of the bowling ball construction process.
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 yield to the performance range capabilities a given bowling ball possesses.
Typically, the plastic and urethane 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 or particle coverstocks in pro performance range bowling balls from 12 – 16 lbs.
In a breaking news story that has shook the bowling community, it was announced November 15th, 2019 that Brunswick Bowling acquired Ebonite Internationals and all of it’s brands, trademarks and technologies. Along with this announcement came the news that the Ebonite plant, located in Hopkinsville, KY, closed its doors abruptly and production of the Ebonite International brands (Hammer, Track, Ebonite & Columbia 300) will all be moved to the Brunswick plant in Reynosa, Mexico. Any ball produced by the Ebonite brands prior to the end of 2019 was indeed manfactured in America. All Hammer, Track Ebonite & Columbia 300 bowling balls manufactured after November 15th, 2019 will be produced at the Brunswick plant in Mexico.
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. As we alluded to earlier, manufacturers will design cores made of urethane and polymer based products in varying density ranges, shapes, number of pieces, and sizes so the end result will influence the overall ball motion predictably as the ball travels down the lane.
