WIN A set of Drakes Pride bowls of your choice
This month, our friends at Drakes Pride are offering one lucky reader the chance to win a set of Drakes Pride bowls in a model, colour and size of their choice ready for the outdoor season – the brand used by Les Gillett when he won the World Indoor Championship open singles. You will have the opportunity to pick from any of these four models:
A phenomenally successful and popular model of bowl used by many top-ranking players. The Professional is a mid-bias bowl with a gradual and consistent finish offering a wide range of shot options, making it superb for both indoor and outdoor use.
The PRO-50 is identical in profile and performance to the incredibly popular Professional model, the only difference is in the grip. Known as the ‘Channel Grip’ this grip is unlike any other currently offered. This grip quite literally creates two deep channels in the bowl which have been found to help many players improve control over their bowl during delivery and in many cases have even enabled players to comfortably deliver a larger size bowl than they usually could. With identical performance to the Professional model, which has been the most popular model for many years, the PRO-50 is an exceptionally well-balanced bowl, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Whilst the Professional model will continue to be popular a popular choice the PRO-50 version gives more options to players looking to benefit from such handling characteristics.
A bias strength on the inside of the Professional model with a smooth flat finish ideal indoor bowl.
Numerous top players have assisted and advised Drakes Pride on the ideal line they are looking for in an outdoor model, this has resulted in the XP. Both the profile and line are crucial to success of a model, and this has been achieved by maintaining the perfect balance of the Professional model whilst adding the touch more bias required for the outdoor game.
