Drakes Pride High & Low Density Crown Green Bowls
High and low density Crown Green Bowls from renowned UK manufacturer, Drakes Pride. Available in pairs with grips.
Hi-Density bowls are smaller than usual for the weight of the bowl. i.e. a 2lb 8oz Hi-Density bowl is the same size as a regular 2lb 6oz bowl. This enables the bowler to play with a heavier bowl than they may otherwise be able to handle and also makes it easier to control the length of delivery on faster running greens.
The low density Excel polished bowls are larger than usual for the weight of the bowl. i.e. a 2lb 8oz low density bowl is the same size as a regular 2lb 10oz bowl. The low density material of this bowl together with the polished finish gives this bowl a similar feel and handling characteristics to the original Lignum Vitae wooden bowls. They also perform similarly to wooden bowls as the low density material also increases the length of run particularly on slow running greens.
Please note that over a period of time the polish on the Excel bowls will show signs of wear and, as with the original wooden bowls, it will be necessary to have the bowls re-polished from time to time.
