No new rules for balance holes.

Information from Jim Dressler, Bowlers Journal Int.

The United States Bowling Congress Board sifted through the input supplied by the ball manufacturers in Orlando, and now have acted on two of the proposals,relegating the other two for further study and deliberation. "We want to get it right," said one USBC spokesperson.

The two proposals that passed initial scrutiny concerned the hardness test and affixing the logo to all new bowling balls. The Mohs’ hardness will go through following a period where the USBC shares its test procedure with the manufacturers.

"As for the logo, there won’t be a design logo as people are picturing it (and was originally proposed)" said our source. "Rather, it’ll be part of the serial number so everybody will know that the ball is officially approved."

The balance hole proposal will not go through as proposed, and ditto with outlawing the off-label drilling. "After talking with the ball manufacturers, it’s pretty clear that the balance hole proposals won’t help USBC reach its goals (in regard to controlling the scoring environment), so we’re creating a Task Force to re-examine the bowling balls at the design stage."

That would presumably mean looking at core designs, cover stocks and even the RG Diff. USBC had already passed some proposals involving a new RG Differential, so the fact that it could be back on the table means they’re open to re-examining everything about the balls before moving ahead. Evidently, USBC would rather be right on the new bowling ball legislation than rush to judgment.

The manufacturers were notified yesterday about the post-Orlando decisions that the USBC had made, and mostly gave a thumbs up to the delaying action. "Somehow, I knew we were at least going to wait," said Phil Cardinale of Dyno Thane.

"They’re probably going to take another look at it and do more testing," he added. "Maybe they started to realize that we do more testing than they do –- I mean, we do this for a living, after all –- but we do want to see testing results to make sure we’re doing it right when moving ahead."
