Whether you’re a professional bowler or an enthusiast looking to improve your game, it’s important to have the right tools in your arsenal. The right bowling accessories can make all the difference when it comes to performance, so it pays to do your research. From balls and bags to cleaners and sanding pads, let’s take a look at some of the products to take your bowling performance up a notch.
When shopping for bowling balls, it's important to consider the cover and core of the bowling ball. It's important to factor in the lane conditions where you will be bowling on when selecting your next bowling ball; different surfaces may affect how differently a ball rolls compared with others. Additionally, make sure you select a ball that is properly fitted for your hand. If you're unsure which ball is best for you, consult with an expert at your local pro shop who can guide you through the selection process.
In order to keep all of your bowling equipment organized and in one place, it is important to invest in a quality bowling bag. Bowling bags come in many sizes and styles; choose one that fits all of your needs yet still allows for easy transportation from home or alley-to-alley.

Bowling Ball Sanding Pads, Cleaners & Polish
Keeping your bowling ball in good condition is an important part of a successful game. Regularly cleaning and maintaining your ball with the right products helps enhance performance and extend the life of your ball. Let’s explore the three main types of products bowlers use for maintenance: sanding pads, cleaners, and polish.
- Sanding Pads: The first step in maintaining your bowling ball is using sanding pads. Depending on the style of sanding pad, it is made with a material like silicon carbide and comes in various grits ranging from very coarse to less coarse. Sanding pads add sanding lines to the ball as well as scuffs and scratches that can affect the reaction of the ball. It is important to use a pad with a grit appropriate for the ball reaction you are looking for. The lower the number on the sanding pad, the earlier the ball will hook. You can also fix damage on your bowling ball with sanding pads. Depending on the type of damage on the surface of the ball—rough grits should be used to remove larger scratches while finer grits are better suited for removing light scratches. After sanding, it is a good idea to thoroughly clean and dry your ball before applying any other product. Get TruCut Sanding Pads HERE.
- Cleaners: Remove oil, dirt, lane residue, and anything else that may build up on your bowling ball over time. Common cleaners include a solvent to clean the bowling ball. Specially designed bowling-ball cleaners are available at pro shops and on our website. It is important to note that some cleaners can leave behind residue which can affect how your ball reacts on the lanes. Get the best bowling ball cleaner that we offer HERE.
- Polish: Bring out an extra shine while providing your bowling ball with additional length and backend. There are many types of polish available today, but it is important to know the differences between these products; each has its own benefits depending on what you are looking for in terms of performance and longevity. The type of polish you choose should depend largely on what kind of reaction you want out of your ball when it hits the pins. Compound and Polish are quite different and if you are interested in learning the difference between these products, click HERE. Check out TruCut Hand Applied Polish Plus Powered by Turtle Wax HERE.
