How Do You Fit a Bowling Ball?
Your bowling ball should be tuned to the unique mechanics of your game. Our Bowling PROS will measure your hand to determine the right fit for you. They may also provide advice based on the following factors.
Pin Location & Center of Gravity
Bowling ball basics.
Pin: Your ball's pin is the solid, colored dot on the surface and represents the top of the ball's core. When a bowling ball is manufactured, the ball's core is perfectly centered inside and the pin is used to suspend the core.
Center of Gravity: This is generally located near the pin and impacts how your ball rolls.
Find the right size for you.
Technicians will measure your hand and fingers to find the right size for you, then drill and sand your new ball.
Get a custom-fit grip.
Special tools designed specifically for measuring finger span are used to make sure you have a comfortable grip on your new ball, with holes spaced appropriately.
