What Coverstock hooks the most?
Urethane – This coverstock is more durable than plastic and offers more friction between the ball and the lane surface. Therefore, urethane has a higher hook potential than plastic. Due to the increased friction on the lane, urethane tends to deflect less which results in better pin action.
Can I use Windex to clean my bowling ball?
According to most bowlers who have used Windex as a bowling ball cleaner, it does wonders getting dirt and grime off the bowling ball. Windex can be a great option if your ball has been mucked up by more than just oil at the lanes, but there are better homemade bowling ball cleaning options out there for you.
What kind of balls are house balls?
They are generally made of a very hard and durable material. Most modern house balls are polyester. They are generally fairly close to being “balanced” and uniform internally, at least as compared to the balls used by more serious bowlers.
Can you hook a house bowling ball?
House balls are not made to hook. A performance ball, however, is designed to hook. Hooking the ball creates a greater angle into the pins and gives the bowling ball more energy at the end of the lane so it hits the pins harder.
What are 5 strikes in a row called?

What is 12 strikes in a row called?
Twelve strikes in a row is a perfect game; 36 straight strikes constitutes a 900 series. Due to the difficulty of achieving a game of 300 or a series of 900, many bowling alleys maintain 300 and 900 club plaques.
Is a heavier ball better in bowling?
The heavier the ball the more hitting power and driving power, and the more pin action. The lighter the ball, the more concern bowlers had about deflection. The combination of ball speed, ball weight and your ability to get the ball into its roll before it hits the pins is what maximizes your carry percentage.
