Recommended ball specs after rule changes?

Post by 56bird »

If this has been covered elsewhere, please let me know and I’ll delete this thread.

For years now I’ve been trying to select bowling balls with 2.7 oz top or less and 3-4” pins, cg and mb reasonably in line on asym to allow my driller flexibility in layouts. Does anything change regarding this with the new rules?

For maximum versatility select top weights below 3oz.
That way, the CG placement is inconsequential to being statically legal unless you do something very odd like an uber short pin, pin up with a massive thumb hole and shallow fingers. You'd have to try to get it illegal at that point.

Keep doing what you're doing.

Do people actually bother with the illegal stuff? I guess I shouldn't be all that surprised by that.
