Choosing Balls for Heavy Oil Conditions

A bowling ball used in heavy oil conditions must be able to create friction despite the oil’s presence. The materials that accomplish this goal also absorb the oil as the ball rolls through it. As a rule, the essential friction negates the use of polyester/plastic or urethane coverstock bowling balls in heavy oil conditions.

The coverstock in heavy oil should be reactive resin.

Reactive resin coverstocks can be either solid, pearl, or hybrid style.

The absorptive nature of the coverstock aids in gripping the lane, but it also creates a greater demand for maintenance and care. Every single throw will see more oil and debris accumulation, negatively affecting the ball’s performance.

The core of the bowling ball is the heavy weight held within the coverstock material. Bowling ball cores can be symmetrical or asymmetrical, and the asymmetrical core offers excellent hook potential and back-end reaction. With an asymmetrical core, you may not have as much control over your throw in heavy oil, so many bowlers prefer a symmetrical core in heavy oil lane conditions.

Keep in mind as you shop for a bowling ball for your next tournament that high performance balls can be expensive. Think of them as an investment in your game. offers plenty of products to help you care for your ball as the investment that it is.
