-Ball Reaction Elements

02/27/2001 - By Tom Blasco
      All of us as bowlers are interested. All of us ask the same questions relating to the importance of ball reaction elements. Here is a listing I've been accumulating for over 5 years relative to this subject and in the order of importance, as I review them. Trust me I didn't dream them up, they come from numerous repetiable sources doing this much longer than I have.

  1. Cover stock
    1. Surface (Highly Aggressive, Very Aggressive, Mild) (Dull or Shiny)
    2. Sanding
    3. Solids vs. Pearls
  2. Track Flare (Axis Migration) (High Flare vs. Low Flare Balls)
  3. Bowler's Style (Boomer, Tweener, Stroker and all those in between)
  4. RG Factor (High RG vs Low RG)
  5. Differential
  6. Core Torque (High, Medium, Low)
    1. Bowler Created Torque
    2. Axis Tilt and Axis Rotation
  7. Other Ball Applications
    1. Balance Holes (Tilted or Straight) (On or Below Axis or Equator)
    2. Top Weight
    3. Center of Gravity (CG)
    4. Pin In vs. Pin Out
  8. Mass Bias
  9. Static Weights
  10. General Ball Knowledge (Lenght, Back End, Hook)
    1. Deceleration
    2. Drilling the Ball
  11. Ball Reaction Generalities (Based on Bowlers Style and his bag of tricks)
