Does your ball hook less than when it was new? Does the shell feel greasy, smooth, and less tacky than when it was new? Even if you clean your ball regularly, the shell can absorb oil to the point where a simple cleaning has virtually no effect. If this is the case, it’s probably time to “bake” your ball.
Cleaning your bowling ball is absolutely necessary. Reactive balls absorb oil, and a ball saturated with oil won’t get enough friction to hook.
When a ball becomes completely saturated, you will need to bake and resurface the ball which can be a very timely and sometimes expensive process. There are ways to bake your ball at home, but having your local pro shop do it is the safest, most common way. To save money and time, you should bake your ball infrequently, and only when necessary.
Clean your bowling ball every time you bowl, and it will need a bake much less often.
There are a bunch of cleaning solutions on the market designed specifically for bowling balls, but it’s cheapest and easiest to just make your own. I will teach you how to properly clean your ball using only common household supplies.

Which grip should I use? Is there a best grip for bowling strikes?

Before Belmo came around, one-handed, thumb-in, grip was standard and was definitely considered the best. Since then
You have to slide. As soon as I decided to work on my slide, I realized that “the slide” is by far one of the most important parts of your bowling technique.
A friend of mine and I went into the alley to throw a few practice games. We got thrown onto lanes 9 & 10 which may
