Bowling Ball Testing
One of the services many pro shops offer today is a bowling ball test service. You can actually try a new bowling ball before buying it.
Pro shops are clever enough to drill holes large enough into a given new bowling balls and then place slugs/sleeves with sized inserts
into the ball to come close in fitting the customer’s bowling hand for trial purposes.
If the ball comes close to fitting the given bowler’s hand, then the bowler can compare the ball motion of the new ball(s) to his or her existing equipment.
By being able to bowl with several new balls provided by this testing service before making a final decision which ball to purchase can be very useful.
