Getting Drilled

Bowling Ball and Drill Bits

Want to bowl a perfect 300? You should probably start with a good bowling ball.

This is a nice starter ball – getting prepped at Striker’s East, where the pro shop has limited hours, but an incredibly friendly staff and reasonable prices. If you’re going to buy a ball, find a local pro-shop and buy it there. DON’T buy on-line. You probably don’t know enough about bowling balls to make that a savvy move… and in the end, you still have to have the ball drilled, so you need your local pro anyways.

This ball cost more at the pro store than it would on the Web, but it came with free drilling. The ball you buy on-line? You’ll have to pay someone to drill it. All of the sudden, it’s not that great a deal anymore.
