Selecting the Proper Ball Weight


Adults:
The weight of the ball should be roughly ten percent of your body weight. Another good rule to go by is to choose a ball that is one to two pounds heavier than the house ball you are bowling with. The reason being is that the grip on the house ball is incorrect and a custom fit ball will feel much lighter because it will be easier to hold on to.

Kids: We recommend a weight equal to their age. Please note 6 & 8 lb bowling balls are designed for kids only not adults. Some manuacturers will not warranty 6 & 8 lb balls that are drilled for adults.

What is the Pin Placement of a bowling ball?


The pin placement of a bowling ball is the distance between the center of the core and the CG. How far the pin is from the CG will help to dictate the balls reaction on the lane.
 
The shorter pins like (0 - 2") will roll up earlier on the lane, and will have a smoother arcing motion to the pocket.
 
The longer pins like (4"+) will go much farther down the lane before starting to hook toward the pocket. The longer pins will also have a more dramatic motion toward the pins (possibly like a hockey stick shape or a skid/flip type of reaction).
 
The (2 - 4") pins are the most versatile to lay out for your ball driller allowing them to manipulate the ball path and have it roll up earlier or later depending on how they lay the ball out.
 
Why is this important?
You want to have the bowling balls natural intended reaction to match up with your drilling pattern you select for the bowling ball. If you get a short pin but want the ball to go long the ball will want to roll up early, even if you drill the ball to go long. This will cause you to have to loft the ball or push through it harder to try to get the desired ball reaction. If you would have selected the correct pin distance and applied a complementary drilling to the ball, you can throw the ball with much less effort, and let the ball do the work for you. This allows you to relax and be smooth, improving your release and scores.

What is the Top Weight of a bowling ball?


Top weight is the amount of weight difference from the top of the bowling ball (CG) and the bottom of the ball (opposite the cg).

In general their will always be more weight to the top of the ball (CG). This is due to the fact that when you drill finger holes into the ball you are extracting weight from the ball (generally 2 ounces or more depending the hole sizes and the density of the core) and it was initially designed to keep the ball balanced after it was drilled. 

Balls with lower initial top weight were generally more stable after drilled than those with higher top weights due to the fact that their was so much weight left over after drilling. This created imbalance and often time added length and backend reaction for early three piece (Pancake weight block) bowling balls.

Top weight by today's standards is not nearly as important because a majority of the weight mass of most bowling balls is closer to the center of the ball than the shell and top weight has less of an effect because ball motion is more about the placement of the weight block itself and not the static weight mass. Top weight these days usually dictates hole size for those off label drillings.


What does this mean in selecting the correct top weight?

2.5 or less - Is for standard drilling techniques. It is also used for advanced drillings where moving the cg further off center of span creates a stronger drilling. You may not needing a weight hole with this type of drilling but depending on how far the cg is moved you may need a weight hole.

2.5 to 3.5 - Is great for normal layouts, a weight hole is not typical for this top weight. Stronger drillings may require a weight hole.

3.5 or more - This top weight is good if you want the ball to push more (go farther down the lane) while adding backend motion, but only if the ball driller knows and incorporates this into the drilling.

It can also be used for placing a big weight hole in a ball because it adds static weight to the drilling. This means you can use a stronger drilling than normal but make it legal by adding a weight hole to remove excess top weight (you can only have 1 oz of top weight remaining after drilling).

***NOTE: These are just basic descriptions to what top weight can do. There are many more scenarios for each top weight and what is capable with each different top weight range. Please discuss with your ball driller how they plan to drill you ball to get a better idea if they plan to use a weight hole or not to achieve the ball reaction you desire. There is no way to guarantee a ball will not need a weight hole depending on the top weight selected, the ball layout will determine that.

Shoe Size Charts

900 Global, Brunswick, Dexter and Storm bowling shoes run true to size.

Right Handed Shoes: Made for bowlers that bowl with their right hand because the slide pad is on the left shoe, which is the foot you slide with.

Left Handed Shoes: Made for bowlers that bowl with their left hand because the slide pad is on the right shoe, which is the foot you slide with.

Uni-sole Shoes: These shoes can be used for right or left handed bowlers because the slide pads are on both feet.



Don't know your shoe size? Do the following...

To get the best fit and comfort, we suggest measuring your feet each time you purchase a new pair of shoes because your feet will change during your lifetime.

1. Get a blank piece of paper, a pencil and a ruler or tape measure.
2. Put on the pair of socks you intend to wear with the shoes you are ordering. Through the course of the day, your feet will swell so it's best to measure them at the end of the day.
3. With the paper placed on a hard floor, sit down in a chair and place your foot flat on the paper. Lean forward, putting more weight onto the foot you are going to measure. As you probably know, your feet are different sizes so be sure to measure your larger foot.
4. Holding a pencil vertically, place a mark at the end of your heel. Place another mark at the tip of your longest toe.
5. With the ruler or tape measure, measure from the heel to the tip of your longest toe.



To Find Your Width:

Measure the distance between the two widest points on your foot. Reduce this number by 5 mm, or 1/5-inch. The result is the number you will use to determine your foot width.

To find your size, use the inch-to-size table. For example, if you are a man and your foot measures 10" long, you will wear a U.S. size 8 shoe. If you are between measurements, size up to the next larger size. It is easy to add a pair of socks to take up a little extra room but very difficult to make shoes that are too small comfortable.

Note: Just because you are a size 9 in one brand doesn't necessarily mean you are going to be a 9 in another. Footwear sizes and shapes vary from brand to brand. Please keep this in mind.

Roto Grip No Rules Exist Bowling Ball


NOTHING CAN HOLD ME BACK... No Authority... No Laws... NO RULES!

CORE...
Inside you will find the now famous Chaotic Core which speaks for itself. By now you have seen the original No Rules and No Rules Pearl. This dynamic core creates a consistent roll no matter how it is drilled.

COVER...
Given the success of the Dare Devil Trick, it was a no brainer that we needed to use that solid cover again. So what the heck, we wrapped it around one of the most dynamic cores on the planet and POOF! Pure awesomeness!

CONDITION...
This ball comes out of the box at 2000-grit pad finish. And because it is a natural solid reactive shell, it can easily be sanded to take on more oil or it can be shined to battle less oil. Your call. This cover/core combo presents yet another versatile piece that some will tend to use as a benchmark ball.

No Rules Exist review by Tommy Gollick
The Roto Grip No Rules Exist is a solid reactive cover, wrapped around the Chaotic asymmetrical core. The Exist can be found in the HP4 line of bowling balls. The cover is called Reckless and has a 2000 pad finish. This is the same cover that was on the Dare Devil Trick. The numbers on the Chaotic core are 2.51 Rg, 0.053 diff, and 0.018 intermediate diff, in 15lb bowling balls. I drilled the No Rules Exist with a 3.5x5.5x2.5 layout. This layout puts the Exist right in between my current No Rules, and the No Rules Pearl. The Exist is earlier and more controlled off the spot than the Pearl, when keeping my hand behind the ball, but gets more angular and stronger off the spot when rotating my hand around the ball. The Exist is easier to get through the front of the lane than the original No Rules. I like the Exist on medium heavy to heavier volume league shots with clean backends, which is what I wanted this layout for. The Exist will be a good ball for bowlers needing a little extra help from the cover and core to shape up, but not be too angular off the spot. The cover offers plenty of board coverage with controlled shape. Roto Grip has done a real good job with offering different shapes on the lane from coverstocks, while still getting familiarity by using the same core. Thank you for taking the time to read my review of the No Rules Exist.

No Rules Exist
The No Rules Exist is the middle child of the No Rules HP4 line. It isn't as strong as the No Rules Solid nor is it as clean as the No Rules Pearl. For me the ball blends the best of both world. It is strong enough that you can use it on longer patterns but also smooth enough that even on shorter patterns the ball isn't shutout. Out of the box I had to adjust the cover to get the exact ball motion for what I was looking for but once I got it matched right the ball was absolutely amazing. Normally with asym balls they tend to burn up after a game or 2 but with the Exist I've been able to stay with it much longer. The easiest comparison for would be a stronger earlier version of the Daredevil Trick.

No Rules Exist Ball Review
Im here letting bowlers know all over about this new release from roto grip,The new No Rules Exist.The feeling i get when i throw this ball makes me think.Damn this ball really does what they say it was made for.Im really liking the shap this ball gives as i was a huge fan of the original.ball motion i see with this ball is little more skid in the front not as early as the first and this one has way more backend as well.I can see this ball being like this as its a true solid and nothing added in the cover as the first one does.This ball and shape it gives me for the longer volume patterns is amazing.drilled it 55x4-1.2x45,i do find shines up little quick as well but i just use abaraon to keep coverstock fresh for the long patters on bowl on.Dont wait Grab one if your looking for more hook in oil this ball does not disapoint.

No Rules Pearl
The No Rules Exist is an extremely awesome bowling ball. I drilled mine with the Pin 1/2” above the Fingers and the CG kicked 1” from the center line. For me this ball rolled real smoothly and had great pin reaction. I played standing on 30 and threw my shot out to the 7 board and the No Rules Exist came back like crazy. If I compare this to my Sue Lock I would say that the No Rules Exist is about 3 to 5 boards weaker. Both balls are drilled the same. The No Rules Exist is a ball that should be a must for Oily Lanes and demanding conditions.

Roto Grip No Rules Exist
The Roto Grip No Rules Exist is a very strong, versatile high end asymmetric ball. My Exist's layout is 50 x 4.5 x 30 and I left it at box (2000). I have thrown this ball on a 43 foot typical house shot that tends to play a little wet/dry for me and a 49 foot modified house pattern which plays very tight. It blends out the 43 foot wet/dry pattern very well. I can either hook the lane from inside or stand further right and play more directly in the puddle. For me, it is the logical step above my Dare Devil Trick with a similar layout. The 49 foot pattern plays super tight and requires most bowlers to keep their angles in front of them. For me, this pattern tends to make most of my balls roll like urethane with hook up front and fade in the back. Where some balls lose their energy and hit a little flatter, the Exist has a different look as it reads the midlane and charges into the pocket.
