Customize Your Ball
To rent or purchase a bowling ball, hit the options button at any point during a game and highlight and select "Equipment." From here, select "Rent/Buy Ball."
Once you've selected Rent/Buy Ball, you'll then be given the option to choose a ball style. There are dozens of styles to select from and plenty of creative and colorful offerings! Find the style you like and select it. You'll then be asked to choose the ideal weight of that bowling ball. 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16-pound balls are available.
After selecting your ideal weight, you'll be asked to choose a hook style for that given ball. There are three separate hook styles to select from, (Even Arc, Late Break Hook and Early Break Hook), all of which can help depending on your bowling style or tendencies.
Players will then be asked if they'd like to rent or purchase the ball. Bowling balls can be rented for one game ($.25), ten games ($1.00) or purchased ($2.00). If you purchase a bowling ball, you'll have it in your virtual bowling collection for good. Once the player has their bowling ball just the way they like it, they'll then be able to check out and rent/buy their ball using cash, gift card money, or money they have in their Player Account.
Finally, place this ball in your bowling bag. Players have five available spots for bowling balls when playing Silver Strike LIVE. After placing your ball in your bowling bag, you're ready to bowl with your personalized bowling ball!
NOTE: Once you use a ball one time during a single game your remaining rental quantities will be reduced by one, regardless of the frame.
