Bowling Ball Info logo

From 2003 to 2014, Bowling Ball Info (BBI) was the premier website for bowling ball information. Unfortunately, repeated site intrusions (aka, hacked) in late 2013 and early 2014 made it financially impossible for BBI to continue. Future implementation of the 40,000-plus variables of BBI's database is being considered.

The following is a sample description of the powerful search features BBI provided...

Bowling Ball Info, Inc. (BBI) was a website company that worked with all the bowling ball manufacturers to bring you the latest information available on every ball in the marketplace. BBI’s format was straightforward, easy to use and offered a wealth of information never before available. Whether a hi-tech, multi-variable search or a simple ball search, BBI literally covered all the bases. Choosing a ball was never easier!

BBI was created by USAB/USBC GOLD Certified Coach Mike Nyitray and internet marketing expert Don Rosenthal.. Developed from a coach’s perspective, the entire BBI website put all bowling ball information literally at your fingertips helping to choose the best bowling ball for a particular bowling style and lane condition. Features located within the free Basic Search areas include: Basic Ball Search, Ball Lists, Style Analyzer, Ball Comparison, Manufacturer Website Links, Manufacturer Drilling Links, Theme Ball Lists and Latest Ball Releases.

The Advanced Membership section was, however, the true strength of BBI’s website. Types of membership include 1-month and 1-year subscriptions. Their powerful search engines provide four different ways to search for current and past bowling balls: Advanced Ball Search, Advanced Ball Lists, Advanced Style Analyzer and Side-by-Side Ball Comparison.

Advanced Ball Search

With all of the different specifications, coverstocks and core designs being developed no one person can keep up with every ball. BBI’s on-line information service reduced the frustrations making hi-tech very understandable. By helping pro shop personnel better understand the technical make-up of any ball they were able to make better ball recommendations to their clientele.

BBI was an unbiased and independent source that based their ratings and descriptions on numerous technical information across ALL manufacturers. Behind the scenes ran complex programming packages that took several years to create. No longer did it require to wade through stacks of magazines when you had the power of the world's most comprehensive ball information website just a few clicks away?
