Hooking a bowling ball is a skill that every bowlers strives to achieve and perfect. However, there are many factors that go into hooking a ball such as the oil pattern, type of bowling ball, revolutions, speed, axis rotation, axis tilt, topography, and so on..In this video, we break down 3 major tips that are a must know when trying to get your bowling ball to hook.
1) The Bowling Ball – There are 3 main types of bowling balls on the market today: plastic, urethane, and reactive. In todays game, reactive resin covers are by far the strongest out of the three thus giving the most hook potential. Urethane cover stocks today are getting stronger as well and are becoming more prevalent in the modern game.
2) Finding the Friction – There is always a " lane pattern " applied to a lane which is how the oil is dispersed onto the lane itself. These patterns typically have more oil in the middle part of the lane than the outside. Because of the lesser amount of oil on the outside part of the lane, this part of the lane will provide your ball with more hook when rolled over.
3) Creating Revolutions – Creating revolutions on a bowling ball and making the ball "spin" provides hook potential. One could throw the strongest bowling ball down the lane but if zero revolutions were applied, the bowling ball will go dead straight. Even though it is one of the hardest variables to change, creating revolutions is still extremely important when trying to hook a bowling ball.
