If you're still looking for aChristmas gift or any occasiongift for that bowler on your listthe king is still a bowling ball.A bowling ball used to be alifetime object with a similarguarantee. It was often passedon to relatives, friends andother bowlers. Seldom was ittossed away and still rates highin the things stored away inclosets, garages, attics andbasements.Bowling balls don't last aslong as they used to but theystill last close to forever. Thecompositions are softer andwear easier but everything isrelative. Pros change bowlingballs as much as they changesocks and might use a ball for afew games or a few months andin very rare cases, a few years.But a pro bowls as many gamesin a week as the averagebowlertosses in a year.Long before it became com-mon for bowlers to have morethan a handy bowling ball ortwo, hall of famer BobStrampe was way ahead of thenorm.“If pro bowlers could carrythem, they would have a differ-ent ball for every lane." saidStrampe.Today's pros and high aver-age rollers, most of themexperts on bowling balls andgrips, their own, and every ballarising from the experienceand imagination of those whodevote their lives to come upwith the perfect bowling ball,will search forever.Most bowlers have moremodest goals, a ball that's com-fortable and helps themimprove their game a bit.All approved bowling ballsare fine, but they are all differ-ent, within United StatesBowling Congress specifica-tions. The outer surfaces varyin hardness, as does the com-position, inner weight blocks,balance, total weight and color.You don't have to know theplus and minus factors of everyball, but in buying a ball youshould seek the advice of some-one who knows or can deter-mine what is best for you.It is not rocket science; it isbowling science.The weight of a ball is allimportant and it is no back-ward step to go to a lighterball, and many of the top prosdo not us a maximum weight of 16 pounds. Color of the ball isthe bowler’s choice and thesedays there are as many colorsfor bowling balls as there arefor Christmas tree balls orEaster eggs.Make arrangements for abowling ball gift with a certifi-cate or a blank ball that can bechanged later when the bowlerhas a chance to spend sometime with the seller.And with all the many scien-tific and technical advances inbowling balls, Teata Semiz, alltime great, makes no excusesfor his feeling for each newbowling ball."Many times I didn't changemuch at all, but a new ballgives you a new outlook and anew mental lift that can't bematched." said Semiz.Isn't that what gifts are allabout?
