Aero Bowls

Made by Australian company Comfitpro, Aero Bowls, also known as Aerobowls or Comfitpro bowls, are designed with accuracy and precision in mind and they have had the thumbs up from some of the biggest names in bowling. The company has listened to famous players such as David Bolt, Brett Wilkie, Ellen Falkner, Val Smith and Mervyn King, who along with other players put their input into the design – and this is one of the reasons why this range is expected to be flying off the shelves!Aero Bowls are manufactured in a high tech factory in Sydney and are used by top players such as Kelvin Kerkow – another big name who helped in the design process. There are a number of reasons why Kerkow and other world champions use Comfitpro bowls and here we put the spotlight on why these bowls are set to be a huge hit with players, including professional and amateur players across the globe: Aero Bowls are highly accurate – Each set you buy of the same model is the same and is matched in quality and weight (within three grams). This can be put down to the manufacturing process where state of the art equipment – including precision lathes and robotic equipment – is used to make these bowls, and they are even buffed using the same apparatus used by Rolex. So what you expect is exactly what you get with Comfitpro! Aero trajectory for precision play – High tech equipment used in the factory creates bowls that are more accurate on the green, as the bowls are less affected by gusts, breezes and uneven surfaces. With each Aero Bowl you get an even, predictable arc, which ultimately gives you more confidence with every shot. Whichever model of Aero Bowls you buy, the bowl will start the turn about mid-way between the mat and the jack. Input from leading names in Bowling – Many high profile players have put their ideas forward at the creation stage. In addition to this, the partners are both big names, with one of them holding an Australian title. Size doesn’t matter with Aero Bowls – The bowls give their best delivery regardless of which size of bowls you choose; and as there are a complete range of half-sizes, you are sure to find the perfect bowl that gives you comfort and a secure grip. Aero Bowls are designed for all ages and abilities, so if you need to go down a size, it won’t compromise your game. Aero Bowls have been used in top games – In fact, this was the brand that won the most big name titles in Australia in 2013! Bowls to suit the conditions of play – Aero makes as many as seven different models, designed and created to suit various conditions of play (e.g. terrain and climate) in specific countries across the globe. Aero Coloured Bowls The Aero range is available in 28 amazing colours, so the chances are you won’t have a bowl quite like anyone else in your club! You can also choose the type, size, emblem and ring colour to make your bowl truly unique. Plus extra large emblems are available so your bowl is sure to stand out above the rest! Choose from zig-zag grips, AeroDentations or plain rings. Trifecta Colour Range For a colourful, fashionable set that stands out on the green, the Aero Trifecta Colour range is the perfect choice. A wide range of colours are available including Dark Blue/Yellow, Pink/Dark Blue/Magenta, Galaxy/Solarflare/Magma, Solarflare/Matilda/Jazz and Dark Blue/Maroon/Yellow. As with the coloured bowls you can also choose the type of bowls, the size, emblem and ring colour.Bowls World sell the following Comfitpro bowls in the colour range or Trifector Colour Range: Maxim – The characteristic of the Aero Maxim, or AeroMaxim, is that it is a wide swinging bowl with a strong finish. It is designed for slow paced greens and is ideal for UK conditions. As with all Aero bowls, these are milled with precision in mind and the Maxim has a gentle, accurate arc that will hold the line. Groove – The Aero Groove, or AeroGroove, suits normal outdoor grass conditions in the UK and South Africa, and most other bowls playing countries with the exception of Australia and New Zealand. It has less swing than the Maxim and is ideal for faster outdoor greens but can also be used on slow greens. Revolution – The Aero Revolution, or AeroRevolution, was used by Jeremy Henry who won the 2013 World Cup. It benefits from a predictable and accurate arc, and holds the line with the least amount of weight, so you can bowl with accuracy on the mat. It suits indoor or fast outdoor conditions. Space – The Aero Space, or AeroSpace, is suitable either for very fast indoor or fast outdoor conditions. It is the newest range to the UK and is also Comfitpro’s narrowest drawing bowl in their UK range. The Aero Space has a comparable type of drawline to the Henselite Dreamline bowl. In addition to the bowls, we also sell a wide range of fashionable shoes and bags by Comfitpro. New stock is being added all the time so keep checking our website to see what we have available by Comfitpro. Bowls World ship worldwide including to the UK, Ireland, Channel Islands, Spain, Tenerife, Portugal, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, Hong Kong and South Korea.

Can lawn Bowls improve your Health ?

Any form of exercise is good for your health, no matter how gentle it may be. And, if you are participating in a team sport, such as lawn bowls, it helps improve your social life too, which contributes to all round happiness and well-being. Whether you are under ten or over eighty and are taking up the sport for the first time, lawn bowls is a great game for people of all ages and we shall take a look at these benefits below

Lawn Bowls - click here to buy lawn bowls equipment, accessories and clothing online.

What Does Lawn Bowls Involve?
Lawn bowls is a game of concentration, precision and accuracy and involves rolling biased or irregular balls as close as possible to a white ball called the Jack. It has been a popular sport in the UK for centuries and there are thousands of bowls clubs up and down the country. As the sport does not involve periods of prolonged and intense activity, it can be played by pretty much anyone. The game is either taken up as a social activity - strictly for leisure - or it can also be played at competition level, for those who want to give themselves more of a challenge.

How Can It Improve My Health?
Sports and physical activity is beneficial to your health as it keeps you active and alleviates boredom. A US study also revealed that bowls players had a lower fat content when compared with people who did not participate in activities – which is another good reason to take up the sport! However, if you do decide to take up lawn bowls, it is always best to check with your doctor first, especially if you have not taken up any form of sport for some time.

Here are some of the benefits:

Fitness – Lawn bowls helps moderately improve muscle strength (arm, shoulder, leg muscles), flexibility and endurance.

Mental Health –The game gets you out into the fresh air and helps alleviate depression and anxiety.

Increases Skills - Bowls involves some element of problem solving skills and also helps improve co-ordination and concentration

Improves Confidence – Participating in a sport helps improve self-esteem and gets you out and about and meeting people.

Self-Discipline – Sports such as lawn bowls involves turning up on time and being organised by wearing the correct uniform.

Social Interaction – Lawn bowls helps improve social skills and being part of a team also gives you a sense of belonging.

Some of the Top Tips for First Time Players.

Although bowls is a low intensity sport, there are some injuries that can occur and the most common of these are slips during play, falls from being struck by a bowl and sprains from over-exertion on the green.

If you are playing the game for the first time, there are some top tips to help prevent injury during play.

Have bowls lessons in advance if you are a first time player to make sure you get the right technique and have the correct grip on the bowl.

Warm up in advance.
Use a trolley to carry bowls equipment if you cannot carry it yourself.
Seek advice on wearing the correct bowls shoes.

When buying bowls for the first time, ask an expert to make sure that it is the right size for you as bowls come in a range of different sizes (from00 to 5).

Wear the correct bowls clothing – i.e. wear a hat in the summer and wrap up warm when it gets chilly.
Make sure you are fully hydrated throughout the game as this will improve your performance and concentration.

How to Join?
If you are planning on taking up bowls, contact your local club to find out times of play and cost. There is likely to be an annual fee for joining, although some clubs do have pay and play facilities.

Some Tips from Henselite Bowls

Each set of diamond-turned Henselite bowls is the result of highly-tuned, precision engineering developed over 80 years of manufacturing innovation.

All the bowls in a set have been individually tested and matched for weight and balance to give you the ultimate in consistent performance on every green…every time.

We are so confident in the quality of our workmanship that we guarantee each set of bowls for ten years. We recommend, however, that you continue to care for your bowls as much as we have, to allow them to perform at their best.

Q. What is the best way to store and transport my bowls?

A. Henselite Bowls Bags are specially designed to protect your bowls when they are being stored or transported. Place the bowls in the bag so that they ride on the running surface, not the engraving. This will protect the engraving from wear and tear.

Q. What do I do if my bowls are in contact with sand or grit?

A. To avoid the abrasive effect of sand or grit, wipe your bowls with a Henselite Polishing Cloth or Sleeve before placing them in your case or bag. Ensure that the bottom of your bowls case or bag is free of sand or grit.

Q. How do I retain the shine on my bowls?

A. Regularly polish your bowls with Grippo using a Henselite Polishing Cloth or Sleeve to keep that ‘new bowl’ sheen. If too much polish accumulates on your bowls, wash the bowls in hot water with soap or mild detergent (such as dishwashing liquid) then dry and polish as usual.

Q. Light scratch marks have appeared on the running surface of my bowls. Is this normal?

A. New, highly polished bowls will always show slight scratch marks on the running surface after use. These marks in no way affect the performance of the bowl or indicate a problem with the bowl. They may usually be polished out using Grippo and a Henselite Polishing Cloth or Sleeve or lightly rubbed with fine steel wool and then polished as usual.

Q. I can’t polish some scratches out. Will this affect the performance of my bowls?

A. Some greens may be "top-dressed" with a sharp, abrasive, granite-type sand. This may cause bowls to scratch or wear more readily. The performance of the bowl is not affected providing the wear on the running surface is even.

Q. Will the bias of my bowls be affected by normal use?

A. The bias of a lawn bowl may be affected by wear through normal use. If you regularly use two or three bowls, rotate the four bowls in your set so that any wear is evenly distributed. This ensures your bowls remain matched for bias. We also recommend that you have your bowls re-tested every three years to check the bias still complies with World Bowls Ltd regulations.

Q. My coloured bowls have become marked, how can I clean them?

A. Coloured bowls may become marked through contact with other bowls and with the ditch. Clean your bowls gently by washing them with a mild detergent to remove these marks
