Why Abralon Pads for Bowling Balls
Get ready to tune your bowling ball to the lane condition with Abralon Pads!
Hitting the pocket alone won’t always get you that perfect strike. Those pesky corner pins can turn a great game into a mediocre game. Entry angle and surface are everything in today’s game.
Angle is important and surface can help create angle. As little as 30-60 seconds on a spinner will change that surface/angle and can improve your carry by 20 to 40%. A little more surface can increase the angle and a little less will decrease the angle.
Are you still a little short of the bowling goals you set for yourself this year? Here is something that will hopefully help you achieve them.
The following is a true story to illustrate the value of Abralon Pads for Bowling Balls.
True Story # 1 – Abralon Pad Testimonial:
Recently a pro-bowler was practicing at our local bowling center. Our house pro and a very good younger bowler were watching and kibitzing as he was consistently leaving a 10 pin on about five out of every six shots.
The younger bowler finally made a comment to the pro about all the 10 pins he was leaving. “I am working on my release so the 10 pin really isn’t my concern right now, plus I could fix that real quick with an Abralon pad.”
Our house pro went “Right”, sort of snickering at him. “Ok”, he said “I’ll show you”.
He went to our pro shop and hit the ball with a 2000 grit abralon pad, back on the lane and on his next shot he did leave the pin, but he got robbed, it wiggled it pretty good and it should have fell.
After that shot, he went back to the pro shop and this time used a worn 500 grit probably equal to about a 750 grit.
Back on the lanes, he rolled 7 strikes in a row, same ball, on the same line, same shot, all he did was polish his ball with Abralon. Our local pro walked off in a snit and the younger bowler was in hysterics.
Now I believe in Abralon pads for bowling balls!
Look up the specifications on about a dozen balls most of them and perhaps all of them will represent their surface in terms of Abralon grit. If the ball manufactures use it, then it must be right.
