Bowling Ball Stats – Comprehensive List

Comprehensive Bowling Ball Stats

When you have the bowling ball stats all next to each other it makes it easier to find the right ball for you. For example, if you’re Bowling Ball Stats - Comprehensive Listlooking for a ball with high hook, simply sort by the “Normalized Flare Potential” column and you’ll see exactly what you need at the top. In this article, we will add all of the bowling balls that we have talked about on our site. This way you can make a side-by-side comparison of the various balls from all manufacturers.

Before we get into it I'd like to shamelessly invite you to join our email list. We won't spam you. We will let you know of special offers, big upcoming tournaments, and new features.

How To Read The Table

In this chart you will have all bowling ball stats in one place. You can sort each column by simply clicking the sort option at the top of each column. All values for Differential and RG are listed for a 15 pound ball when we were able to find them. We have additional resources on various topics if you need more information. By default the table is organized by brand.

When you find the ball you need simply click the ball image or the link at the end of each row. This will take you to Amazon and you can buy with ease. Remember, we’ll be continually adding balls to this table as they make it onto our site. So if there is a specific ball you want let us know in the comments and we’ll prioritize it.

If you aren’t sure about what a column means you can read our full articles on how to choose coverstocks, weight, and hook (differential and RG) for the details on what those columns mean. If you want a quick overview scroll below the table for a quick summary. Now, to the good stuff.

Bowling Ball Stats And Coverstocks

The coverstock is the outer coating of the bowling ball. It creates traction with the lane to varying degrees. The type of coverstock plays a major role in how well the ball hooks. This is because a smooth ball has less friction while a rough ball has lots of friction and really grabs the lane. From lowest to highest amount of grip you have plastic/polyester, urethane, pearl reactive, hybrid reactive, and finally solid reactive. Adding a particle composite can also further increase the friction. For an in depth review of coverstocks see our article How To Choose A Bowling Ball Coverstock.

Differential, Normalized Flare Potential, And RG

In our article How To Find The Best Bowling Ball For Hook we discuss each of these in greater detail, but we’ll summarize here. RG is the location of the center of mass within the ball. Differential is determined by taking the RG of the x, y, and z axis and then finding the difference between the highest and lowest of the three. Differential determines flare potential on the lane. We’ve converted the differential values to a 1-10 scale so you can determine at a quick glance how much hook potential a ball has. 1 is a straight roller – ideal for getting spares. While a 10 is incredibly reactive and will have a lot of hook.
