Choosing Your Bowling Gear

Bowling is a fun sport and it should be. Although it's a sport which was initially not meant to be played by everyone, choosing the right kinds of gears makes it possible for almost all people to enjoy the game. 

Choosing the right bowling gear can elevate one's game if he is serious about bowling. One can actually play the game without going through the hassle of buying and bringing his own gear, but it's so much better to play with your own gear. It's like playing a guitar, once you buy a guitar and you get used to it and the same is true of bowling.

Here are some of the essential bowling gears which one must have to step up his bowling game: 


A serious bowler must have his own bowling ball/s. Bowling balls differ in weight, which is probably one of the most important things to consider when choosing a bowling ball. The general rule in bowling is that a person can use a ball which weights 10% of his total body weight. This means that a person who weights 140 pounds can use a ball which weights up to 14 pounds. 

In choosing a bowling ball, one must also assess the comfort that it brings to the hand and the wrist, the right distance of the finger holes, and the general feel of the ball. 


Some people may find bowling shoes funny-looking, however, they are very important in bowling. The right kind and size of bowling shoes allows the bowler to concentrate more the game and less on the little irritating details that come along with rented shoes from the alley. 


Bowling bags should be bought if one desires the convenience they bring. Today's bowling bags can accommodate more than one bowling ball and the other accessories that might be needed. 

Wrist supports 

Not all bowlers use wrist supports but they do help in training the wrist to perform the correct release of the ball with the right position. 

Buying essential bowling gear is important if a player wants to move up to another level. Gear refers to the tools which you use to be able to achieve a better style of play or simply to train yourself to play properly...
