Competitive skittlers have for centuries prefered to use balls made from the traditional wood, Lignum Vitae, a tropical hardwood which is extremely hard, very heavy and also self-lubricating. This is increasingly difficult to obtain and many leagues are having to try new materials for their skittle balls.

Furthermore, there are several leagues in the West Country whose league stipulate that only rubber skittle balls are used. This is probably because hard rubber takes longer to wear out the pins and is more environmentally friendly.

These skittle balls have quite different characteristics to wooden or phenolic resin balls but many leagues prefer them. They are hard rubber, bounce slightly more than resin balls and are a bit lighter. As the material has a slight give to it, they will tend to do less damage to the skittles and alley over the long term. The rubber is pink so that they don't mark the alley - black rubber balls tend to have that disadvantage.
