The weight block or core may or may not be evenly distributed within the sphere. When it is not is is call asymmetric.

How do you make a bowling ball?

The bowling ball is made of three layers, namely the core, the second layer and the primary layer. All layers come in various materials, but the most prevalent one is resin. The core of a bowling ball may have different shapes, since the core's shape depends on your bowling stroke. The second layer acts as a protective cover of the core, while the primary layer should conform to the bowling lane's surface. Before you start building your bowling ball, you should be aware of the ball basics.Materials Used: resin, boiler, core mold, second layer mold, primary layer mold, mechanical drill, cleaning solution.To create your bowling ball, you should be aware of the type of ball that perfectly suits your style of play. There are different core types attuned to various playing styles. When you have figured out the most suitable core type, get some resin and place them in the boiler. The resin will eventually liquefy. Once that happens, transfer the molten resin to your chosen core mold. When it dries, you can proceed to the ball's second layer.The second layer is the easiest to create among the three ball components. All you need is to create a rather sturdy resin layer around the core and you're done. Place the core in the middle of the secondary layer mold. Now, you can melt resin with the use of the boiler then wait for its temperature to significantly drop. You can then pour the resin in the mold to cover the core. Once the second layer completely hardens, the core will have its necessary protective coat.Now, you only have one final layer to deal with, the primary layer. Place the second layer and the core in the middle of the primary layer mold. Repeat the resin-melting process found in the creation of the two previous layers. When the primary layer is formed, your bowling ball is almost ready. Drill three holes into the ball's surface to create your fingers' insertion points. At this point, you can apply cleaning solution to your ball to give it a pleasing gleam. You can now find yourself a bowling lane to strut your stuff.

What does full roller mean in bowling?

when someone releases the ball, on purpose, with no rotation or "hook". In reactive balls(made to hook) the coverstock and core "hook" the ball

What new designs have been made in bowling balls?

Several new urethane and reactive resin bowling ball shells and complex inner core configurations--designed to vary the ball's rotation as it goes down the lane--have substantially altered the ball's hook as it approaches the pocket.

What ball has a greater density softball or soccer ball?

Because a soccer ball is made of "polished" pieces of fabric sown together and a bowling ball is made of Urethane, which is optimized ceramic material which has been partially hollowed and a core has been placed in the middle, I would say bowling ball.

How can a reactive resin bowling ball give you a high score?

Assuming you're already a decent bowler who can hit the pocket consistently, a reactive resin ball can give you a better angle into the pocket than a plastic or hard rubber ball. It accomplishes this by sliding down the lane while friction heats up the reactive resin coverstock, then hooking hard when the the ball "grabs" the lane. This results in a sharper angle into the pocket than non-reactive balls. This phenomenon is further enhanced by the shape of the heavy "core" of the bowling ball and the position of the finger holes relative to this core. This improvement in coverstock and core technology provides a greater benefit to better bowlers. A $250 bowling ball will not make a 120-average bowler into a 180-average bowler, but a 180-average bowler can improve their average noticeably with a properly fitted and drilled ball chosen to complement their normal shot and lane conditions.

What is the 2013 best bowling ball for synthetic lanes?

There isn't one specific ball that is best for synthetic compared to wood lanes. Because the surface of a ball can be altered and the drilling pattern can be changed to leverage the core design of the ball towards an individual player's strength or oil pattern, there isn't a definitive answer.

Can you put a tennis ball in an oven?

It depends on the type of ball. Some can be put in the oven on lowest (120degrees) setting. To do this you must put a towel on bottom of the pan you are using, put it in for 15 to 20 min, take it out and put in hot soapy water, dry off and place back in the oven, repeat until no oil comes out of your ball. This can take several hours. Your best bet is to go to the bowling alley, they have a machine that extracts the oil from your ball. I would say if your ball is older than 2years and you bowl frequently then it is time to get a new ball.....ignore everything i said so far..never ever put your bowling ball in the oven it will ruin the coverstock of your bowling ball which helps make it hook. And if you do put in the oven ur risking the core of your bowling ball in which if it breaks your ball is pretty much screwed might as well say its a house ball. If your bowling ball is getting old I mean if you bowled at least 150 games with it I would get it resurfaced. Ya that's they put your ball in a resufacing machine which removes all the oil...that should definitely put some life back into your bowling ball. This only works on reactive resin ball or particle not on spare balls.

Defferences between asymmetrical and symmetrical bowling ball?

There are many differences between bowling balls. The most obvious is weight. Bowling balls typically range from 8 to 16 pounds. The second difference is in the coverstock--the outside material of the bowling ball. They range from plastic at the low end, through hard rubber (far more popular in the past), to exotic reactive resin compounds. Internally, the cheapest balls are made of a single, solid material, while more expensive balls have a dense core in various shapes. All of these differences serve to provide a wide variety in the way bowling balls react to various bowling styles and lane conditions.

Are bowling balls hallow?

NO. Depending on the type of they will either have a reactive core inside or a solid plastic core.
