Almark bowls are the least expensive of all the bowls you can buy. The brand is owned by Henselite.
Back in the 1980s when the Almark brand was introduced, Aero didn;t exist, which made Henselite the most pricey bowls on the planet.
Perhaps that’s why, in order not to lose business, especially from new bowlers, Henselite introduced the Almark models and priced them underneath comparable bowls from Taylor and Drakes Pride.
The reputation of the Almark brand suffered a knock soon after it was introduced when a faulty batch was made that had a tendency to break in half.
That was a one-off, and for the last 25 years Almark bowls have been an excellent choice for anyone taking up the sport of lawn bowls.
