Almark calls these bowls ‘Slimline’ and that needs explaining. Bowlers use the word ‘line’ to describe how much curve a bowl takes on its way to the jack. So the use of ‘Slimline’ in this bowl’s name might make you think they have a narrow line when delivered.
Nothing could be further from the truth. This bowl takes a line comparable to the Drakes Pride Professional or the Taylor Ace. What ‘slimline’ refers to is the width of the bowl in your hand – it is slimmer than the equivalent size of either of the two models just mentioned. This allows those with smaller hands to find a comfortable grip.
