Most debates about bowling's playing environment follow one of two paths: "It's the balls!" or "It's the oil."

 

In our experienced opinion, it's BOTH. 

 

In 1997, the same year Teen Masters began, Kegel founder John Davis declared bowling in crisis.

Balancing these two factors is crucial for creating a challenging and fair playing environment in bowling. 

To achieve balance, we took two critical steps:

PBA SKILL 3.02 Ball

Step One

Tame the Ball

Based on decades of research and field testing, we used modern technology to design a ball that will not flare or absorb oil.

 

The PBA SKILL 3.02 has a low-differential core (0.010), a durable, pearlized urethane cover stock, and a hardness of 80.

Step Two

Reduce the Oil

Low-volume oil patterns are viable with ball flare and oil absorption under control.

 

Less oil = less transition.   

Less transition = less chaos.
