ALL THAT JAZZ
Drakes Pride releases its brand new bowling line

It’s one of the of the most eagerly anticipated new product releases that bowls has seen for a long time – and, at long last, the brand new “Jazz” bowl range from Drakes Pride is available to buy.

Developed over the past two years, the “Jazz” line is the latest high-performance, high-quality product to roll off the Liverpool-based company’s production line.

It was developed in response to customer demand and features a bias that is marginally stronger than that of Drakes’ hugely successful “Professional” bowl, enabling it to produce a gradual, consistent finish to the jack time and
time again.

However, rather than simply being a tweaked or slightly adjusted version of the “Professional”, the “Jazz” is a whole new bowl in its own right and one which has been produced using complex mathematics and geometry.

So, those who assume that it is just a  new take on an old favourite can stop and think again. Working very closely with many world ranking bowlers, and drawing on advice and assistance from others within the bowling fraternity, Drakes conceived the idea for the new model.

What followed thereafter was a period of dedicated research undertaken by both mathematics and geometry professors, which helped to produce the desired shape and performance of the bowl, with further fine-tuning carried out by Drakes’ state-of-the-art, computer-controlled turning centre technology.

The end result of all of this produced a bowl which delivers a highly consistent finish and which performs to spectacularly high standards. Indeed, the performance of the bowl was achieved by the creation of a bowl with a “dual bias geometry”. What that effectively means is that, as the bowl slows down, it very smoothly transfers from its initial bias to a second, weaker bias in order to ensure that the desired finish to the jack is attained.

It is, quite simply, a remarkable bowl and one which has already proven to be a massive success with bowlers since it was launched into the market at the start of May. Mike Eggington, the CEO of Drakes Pride, revealed: “The initial response from players has been very exciting and we are expecting this particular model to prove extremely popular, both indoors and outdoors.”

The “Jazz” bowls come in sizes 00 to 5 in heavy-weight and, appealingly for all you colour buffs out there, they are available in the full range of Drakes’ 12 available colours: black, red, brown, maroon, mid blue, dark blue, magenta, speckled maroon, speckled green, speckled blue, speckled black/red and speckled blue/yellow.

Interestingly, it also comes with a brand new grip, which has also been developed by Drakes to make the bowl easier to hold. Of course, assuming you prefer the more traditional style of grip, that can be arranged for you also.

“The new bowl has been in development for roughly two years, from concept to completion,” explained Eggington. “We essentially saw that there was a gap in the market for this type of bowl, which explains its introduction, and it goes without saying we are delighted with the finished product. “A number of well-known players had an input into its creation, including the World Bowls Tour’s new No.2-ranked player, Mark Royal, as well as former World Indoor Singles champion Robert Weale and other notable players, such as Simon Skelton and Rob Newman.

“Given their input and, of course, the wealth of research which went into producing the bowl, we are more than confident that we have created a product that will appeal to bowlers the length and breadth of the country and beyond.”

So, if you’re in the market for a new set of bowls this year to help transform you from a contender to a winner, or if you perhaps feel that you’re not getting the high performance and consistency that you want from the bowls you’re currently using, then you’ve got nothing to lose by giving the new Drakes Pride “Jazz” a go.
