Giving bowlers a voice before production begins is what inspired us to start WorXshop Bowling.
We want to provide bowlers with choices and the opportunity to tell us which ball motion they’re looking to use on the lanes right now. We want to give you the balls you want in the colors you’ve always wanted to see.

Ball motion options are the heart of each of WorXshop’s production cycles, and falls into three general categories — classic, angular and torque.
Failsafe is a low RG, low differential bowling ball that provides a smooth, continuous motion off of the breakpoint while simultaneously offering the overall total hook profile that bowlers have been asking for.
The royal purple and aqua colored bowling ball has great visual appeal and a predictable ball motion that is good for the start of any regular league or during a tougher flat pattern shot during a tournament.
Older players, high rev players, and players who crave predictability out of a bowling ball choice will gravitate towards Failsafe.
The torque ball choice provides asymmetrical ball motion. More often than not, asymmetrical balls read the late mid-lane and give bowlers a stronger reaction than classic balls that carry better due to less deflection through the pocket.
Hardened features an asymmetrical core. We wanted to create a torque option that would read the late mid-lane while featuring more angle and overall hook on the backend (compared to the classic choice, Failsafe).
This bowling ball is predictable and will have a very familiar motion for those players who love asymmetrical ball motion. Hardened reads in the late-to-mid lane while providing a continuous, strong motion through the pins.
Due to the lower intermediate differential, Hardened does not roll as forward off of the breakpoint as most asymmetrical balls on the market. The continuation off of the breakpoint is important to create carry for this choice.
The angular ball choice provides the skid/snap motion. It is clean through the front end of the lanes, and angular in the backend to create increased entry angle and carry. This is the type of reaction that makes the ladies swoon and men give props when you leave your fourth stone nine pin in a row.
Pop! is the strongest symmetrical pearl on the market.
This angular choice features a unique core to WorXshop Bowling designed with our ballers in mind.
The 0.048” total differential of Pop! means the ball can be drilled to influence the overall strength of the ball based on your chosen layout.
* Coverstock Strength
The coverstock strength number is an incorporation of our internal testing and some external testing done by the USBC and others. Most coverstocks will be between five and nine, however WorXshop may try using a super aggressive coverstocks or urethane covers in the future.
** Core Strength
The core strength is a number developed from our own internal core ratings system that has developed since Paul’s days at the United States Bowling Congress. It takes into account a multitude of things into the number. Most symmetrical cores will not go above a 20 out of 25, while most will be around eight to 14, while asymmetrical cores will be between 14 and 25. We may even try and reach a score of 28.
What does a high core strength number mean? A high core strength number, paired with the right coverstock will improve carry through the pocket, have a sharper breakpoint, and will maintain its path more through the pocket.
+ Versatility Index
The versatility index is a measure of how much you change the total differentials in a bowling ball with the weakest drilling we would recommend in the ball and the strongest layout. This is a range of how tunable that particular choice will be out of the box.
