Brand Advice

We are often asked the question “what bowls brand should I use?”

We also have many customers who turn up with a particular bowl/brand in mind because their coach / friends said they were the best or, that their club champion plays with a particular bowl so they must be the best.

At Hunter bowls, we are not paid to promote one brand over the other and we sell all brands. Our loan bowls are a great way for the customer themselves to try out all the brands, all the models, all the sizes and all the grips. That is one of the many reasons our loan bowls are so successful. Our customers get to test out a variety of different bowls/brands and make their own decision as to what suits them best

Bowls can feel very different in the hand between brands and grips. What feels good to one person can feel very different to another, we see this all the time. Comfort is very important. Among the different brands there are different models which all vary in the amount of grass they take and their particular line to the jack. It comes down to personal choice and individual needs.

Quiet often we see customers who come into the shop with the intention of buying one particular bowl only to end up taking a few different loan bowls and completely changing their mind after testing out other models or brands.

So to answer the question “What bowl brand should I use?”, our advice would be to take a few loan bowls and decide for yourself.
