Where To Find Discount Bowling Balls

By Edited Jun 18, 2015 0 3

Discount Bowling Balls

Discount bowling balls can be found quite easily if you know where to look. Usually cheap bowling balls are either in used condition or they are older models which never sold from the bowling pro shop racks. A lot of times the used balls are a good choice because they can be discounted even more than old models in brand new condition and still remain in nearly new condition themselves.

Many touring professional bowlers including many avid competitive bowlers on the local arena have a large supply of bowling equipment which they cycle through. Some of these people will use bowling balls for only a small amount of games and will keep the balls in very good condition. As competitive bowlers routinely discard old balls that don't fit their needs these people can be a good source of finding discount bowling balls if you can forge a relationship with them.

If you have trouble getting in touch with these types of bowlers or are unwilling to do so you can always frequent your local bowling pro shops and keep a close eye on their discount bowling ball rack. The pro shop will always have a selection of used bowling balls which have been plugged and are ready for a new owner. Each ball is in good enough condition that they will still help you hook a bowling ball and score better. Not only that but you can even save money on the cost of drilling the ball to fit your fingers. Many pro shops discount this charge when you buy from the shop rather than from elsewhere.

Because there are many places where you can buy discount bowling balls you should not be limited to a small selection. You should know that you still can be picky and you don't have to settle. Decide exactly what is right for you and buy a bowling ball that meets your needs. If you have trouble finding your exact bowling equipment then you can always expand your search online.

Discount Bowling Balls Online

Just as you can buy discount bowling balls and equipment in your local pro shop you can just as easily do the same from online bowling pro shops. In fact the discount may even be greater before you account for the addition of shipping and handling charges. Bowling balls are heavy so you have to understand that shipping them is not cheap. It's likely that you will find cheaper bowling balls online but will not be able to pay less for them due to shipping charges. This however is not necessarily a bad thing if it mean you can find the exact discount bowling ball you want. The trade off is worth it.

If you search for pro shops online you can usually make the shipping charges more worthwhile buy buying all of your equipment needs at the same time. By bundling your purchase of a discount bowling ball with the purchase of bowling shoes and a roller bowling ball bag you will at least be making more efficient use of your shipping charges.

It's not good enough to simply throw a bowling ball right off the rack. By upgrading or acquiring proper bowing equipment you can become a better bowler and become a more consistent bowler. Start off slowly though by finding discount bowling balls around your town and learn to be a better bowler before you start investing in the best and most expensive equipment. This will be the most efficient use of your money and the best way to get more involved in local bowling.

Thanks for the note; I've gotten to the point where I only buy discount bowling balls. All the newest balls can be found on discount somewhere if you wait long enough.

I love spending my free time bowling with friends. Great job pointing out that higher shipping charges are inevitable for such heavy purchases. I'll be looking online for my next ball!
