Asymmetrical vs Symmetrical Bowling Balls — 4 Comments

  1. Very good explanation! None of my pro shop drillers never explained that too me!! This is kinda of a must know, when buying some these high end balls!

  2. Very very enlightening man. Been bowling my whole adult life and really had no idea on the core factor. I always thought it was all about the finish. Thanks!!

    • Hi Mike,
      Glad you liked it. Those cores can make a real difference. But, don’t completely count out the cover stock either.Nowadays the cover stock is very high tech, and they sometimes can mask the action of the core. I still like the symmetrical cores for their smoothness. Thanks for taking the time to comment. It is appreciated!

  3. Hi, Chas! This is an interesting thing to think about. I never thought about the core of a bowling ball… I just figured they were some kind of injection molded chunk of epoxy. I haven’t thought about the finger holes making a difference either. It all makes sense though.
