28 Comments on “The Urethane Bowling Ball When | How Everyone Can Use It”

  1. Thank you for detailing the VERY NARROW band in which urethane is useful in league and for league bowlers!

    1. The narrow (nonexistant) band almost never shows up but some people just pull out urethane anyways. I dont get it

  2. I had good luck with my blue hammer urethane on the wood lanes at the Rec bowl the last two years because they were fairly dry. They bough a new oiling machine and this year I had to go back to reactive. I can use my urethane ( I am a lefty) for the 4 and 7 pins.

  3. Urethane are Perfect for Corner pin spares. Because the oil stays on tha ball ALL night and you dont have to worry about it hooking on tha back when its super dry

  4. I have used urethane since the urethane era. I never wipe the ball off. This gives me the best consistency. It is used for non corner spares. Being a slow bowler 12.5 mph at the pins, with a large hand span…. I can use urethane and hook the snot out of it. It is the tool in my bag with the most versatility. Short pin reactive is good, but urethane feels more natural for some reason.

  5. I would like to add one point to this:
    They said if you have very high revs urethane can be used effectively on both house and sport shots.
    But, like in my case, if you have very low revs (120 rpms) and very low ball speed (12 mph launch speed) urethane can also be very effective on both house and sport shots.
    So I think urethane is definitely a good option for players on either extreme of rev rates, but becomes not very good for players that fall into the middle of that rev range.

    1. Low rev low speed players can go with a short pin layout on a Brunswick twist like my girlfriend did, and it hits harder than urathane.

    2. @Chris Kelly84 I have tried short pins on several resin balls with no success.
      Urethane is much more consistent and predictable and is less likely to get into over/under as I see with short pin resin balls.
      Short pin resin is a one hit wonder that works great when it matches up perfectly. But high flare urethane is much more versatile for me.

  6. I would like to say, all I tend to use is urethane bowling balls. Most reactive balls are to much for me to roll. I have rolling my best scores with urethane. I am not sure what my rev rate is but I have been told it was high.

    1. Hi Dj,
      I have been struggling using urethane balls when the lane transitions.
      Can you please help.
      Can you break it down for me. How to make adjustments (board position, angle, speed, etc..) in Short, Medium, and Long pattern throughout the games or when the lane transitions. I would really appreciate if you or anyone who is reading this share their expertise.
      Thank you so much!

    2. @Onesongperweek I am in no way an authority on how to properly make adjustments, but generally what i do when the lanes start to show signs of breaking down i tighten up my line. Usually by like 1 to 2 boards. My starting point is usually on the 15 board out to the 8 board. As the lane transitions I move left (since I am left handed) and if the the lanes call for it I move my starting point for my approach back a half step to give the ball more time on the lane to read. I don’t know if this will help you but it works for me. Good luck and good bowling sir.
