Old timer new beginning

Post by FunDad »

So I’ve been out of the game for about 15 years. This question might seem dumb to most of you but figured I’d rather ask than find out the hard way. I’ve had my bowling balls stored in my garage for the last 15 years. I live in Indiana with warm humid summers and cold winters. What are the chances my bowling balls are still structurally sound and won’t crack or shatter? I’m ready to get back out on the lanes soon and don’t want to get my heart broke. Thanks for any help.

I'm thinking if they have lasted this long in such an extreme storage location then they should last a little while as you get back in the game.
I would keep in mind the thought of getting a new ball.
At the same time have your grip evaluated and see if any changes are in order.
