Cover Stock

By

Definition: The material on the outer surface of a bowling ball, which is instrumental in determining how a ball reacts to the lane conditions.
Examples:
Paul's reactive-resin cover stock had too much grip to pick up the ten pin, so he now throws a ball with a plastic cover stock to pick up that spare.
