Clear Bowling BallsClear bowling balls can be rather mesmerizing -- after all, there is nothing quite like seeing a skull or a giant orange, etc. knocking down ten pins. However, clear bowling balls are not for everyone. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you are interested in them:
If you want a clear bowling ball with something small, like a pair of dice "floating" within it, you are only going to be able to use the ball for making spares (straight bowlers can also use such a ball.) The reason? As you can literally see, such a ball has no core.
In fact, when you have a clear bowling ball, you can see directly through the coverstock, to the core. So, depending on what object you want to have suspended within your ball, you are going to have a different shaped core, and different shapes cause the ball to act differently. It is possible to get a variety of shapes -- cylinders, squares, etc. -- but not all images look good on all shapes of cores.
So, if you are a serious bowler, you are going to have to choose your transparent bowling ball based more upon how it rolls than how it looks. And, to be quite honest, most people choose clear bowling balls because of how interesting they look!
A clear bowling ball can be an excellent tool if you want to show someone how different cores work -- after all, it is the only type of ball that you can actually watch the core in action: you can see how it creates an imbalance with the ball and how the ball tries to stabilize as it rolls down the lane.
So, remember, when shopping for a clear bowling ball, how the core looks is not as important as how it acts.
