About the Bias
January 11, 2009 by lawn bowls
One of the main things that people will look for when buying lawn bowls is the bias that the bowl has. The bias is the part of the bowl that has been designed to allow the bowl to curve when it is thrown. The bias that the bowl will have will depend on the type of bowl and the manufacturer. Bowls can either have a large bias or a narrow bias and bowlers will choose one based on how they like to throw the bowl. A narrow bias will allow for bowls to get into small spaces and will roll straighter. Large biases are able to go around other bowls and will have a very large curve when they are thrown. How fast the greens are will also depend on the bias of the bowls. There are strict regulations pertaining to biases however, players still have a wide range of bowls with different biases to choose from.
