What To Do With An Old Bowling Ball

Bowling balls age over time and become less useful for bowlers. Over time, the coverstock (outer shell) of the bowling ball becomes less reactive and doesn’t hook as much. Sometimes, it just needs a bake, but bowling balls do eventually wear out and need to be replaced. However, just because the ball doesn’t react like it did when it was new, doesn’t mean you should throw it away. Read below to find out what you can do with your old bowling ball(s).

Storm Physix

The Storm Physix is the newest ball in the Storm lineup. It will be released on October 9th, 2018. As usual these days, this ball is another hook monster that will have a decent mid-lane read while having an intense reaction on the back-end. This ball is going to beg you to go deep into the oil to get a proper reaction. The NRG Hybrid Reactive Cover gets an insane amount of friction both on and off the oil. The weight block is innovative in both the aesthetic and performance. The core actually has the oval and lightning bolt on the core. It’s something you’ll probably never see with your own eyes, but it’s pretty cool if you ask me!

Motiv Trident Abyss

The Motiv Trident Abyss is another heavy oil ball from Motiv. It will be released on October 3rd, 2018. It is expected to be placed at the top-left of the Motiv Ball Guide Chart, meaning that this ball will have a smooth, but powerful hook potential. This ball will fill a specific niche in your ball arsenal if your Jackal or regular Trident is just a bit too angular on the back-end. The shape produced by this ball is unlike most other balls on the market. The smooth shape combined with the strong hook potential takes this ball from just being a typical benchmark ball to also being a specific niche-filler.

Why throw a hook shot?

Throwing a hook shot gives you the best chance of getting a strike. To get a strike, you need to hit “the pocket” at an entry angle of 3-6 degrees. As you probably know, the lanes are covered with oil.  If you properly take advantage of the oil, you can have your ball skim across the oil pattern and hook inwards toward the pocket in order to get the entry angle that you need. Learning to throw a hook shot and get that entry angle is the number one thing that separates beginners from intermediate bowlers. Here’s how you do it.
