If you are looking for bowling balls for women, you might not find what you are looking for so easily. In the bowling world, men and women have an equal playing field for competition. However, there are some bowling ball companies that are marketing certain products to women to give them a personalized edge.
Depending on your bowling experience level, some women may consider a plastic coverstock when purchasing a bowling ball; only if you don’t throw a hook (or curve). However, if you’re looking to take your game to the next level, you should consider purchasing a higher performance bowling ball instead. Performance bowling balls allow for solid rotation and impact with the pins. Rotation and hook are vital to higher scores. However, depending on your budget and your bowling skill level, it is hard to select a ball that fits. That’s why the crew at BowlerLife have compiled a few recommended bowling balls for women.
Want an edge? Consider the following:
DV8 Diva Style
The DV8 Diva Style is a combination of the Composite Pearl Coverstock and the Diva core, which provide a perfect match to medium oil conditions. Bowlers have reported that the Diva Style has great energy retention and continuation as it smashes into pins.

Roto Grip Hustle
The Roto Grip Hustle takes a low RG core and matches it with the Pumped Pearl Reactive coverstock to provide a great ball to take on medium to light oil conditions. This ball is considered a great down-and-in ball as it pushes through the lighter oil and retains enough energy at the breakpoint. Many bowlers have mentioned that this ball is perfect for when lane conditions break down too much or call for a ball that needs a delayed hook.

The Storm Mix is a perfect addition to any bowling arsenal. This entry-level performance ball works great on dry lane conditions. However, it can also double as a spare ball. With its polished urethane coverstock, it provides a bit more hook than a typical spare ball making it a great go-to when practicing or when the oil is almost completely burned away.
