All bowling balls have different pin distances out from the CG and various top weights. Usually your pro shop professional will decide what specifics he wants based on your span, relative to where he wants to place the pin and cg and if he wants to use a balance hole. These specifics aren’t necessary for the consumers to choose, but we allow you to pick what you want and we fill all orders exact or as close as possible based on availability.
Pin Position – The pin distance describes how far the pin and the cg are apart. A pin-in ball is where the pin and cg are any where from 0-1” apart. A pin-out ball is where the pin and cg are any where from 1” + apart.
Example #1: Balls with a 0-1” pin will get the ball into a slightly earlier roll with slightly less flare potential.
Example #2: Balls with a 3-4” pin out will give the ball slightly more length and more flare potential than the ball in example 1.
Top Weight – The amount of imbalance placed in the bowling ball to offset the removal of weight from the gripping holes. Average top weight ranges from 2-4 oz.
Example #1: Balls with 2 oz or less top weight will get the ball into a slightly earlier roll.
Example #2 Balls with 2 oz or more top weight will give the ball slightly more length than the ball in example 1.
