  • House Ball Inventory

    I remember reading years ago in an issue of on of the trade magazines, BCM or IBI I forget which, an article about suggested house ball inventory. It told of how many of each weight to carry. I thought I made a copy of it and can't find it anywhere. About 1/3 of my rack inventory are house balls, 2/3 are balls that were left by league bowlers. I'm looking to change that ratio during the offseason. Anybody remember reading it or have thoughts on how many of each weight a typical 16 lane center should carry?

    Most companies [QubicaAmf, Brunswick, Linds, ect...] will have suggestions. Just shoot them an email and they will send you a reply with suggestion.

    the recommendation numbers have changed over the last 10 years, especially if you choose balls that have different size holes for small, medium, large for same weights.
