If this is your first time using a reactive-resin ball, you’ll probably find you’re already throwing a hook. The more you bowl, the more you naturally start to throw a hook. A reactive-resin cover stock will bring that out.

Regardless of the ball you’re using, take your normal approach to the foul line before you start your swing.
