Enhancing your bowling game isn't just about practicing regularly. It's also about using the right bowling accessories. That's where Master Industries steps in, providing high-quality products for bowlers of all skill levels. Founded in 1967, Master Industries has been a pioneer in this field, and their acquisition by Storm Products has only elevated their product line. Let's dive into some of their standout offerings and how they can help improve your game.

Wrist Master II Brace

Wrist Master II Braces

One of Master Industries' most iconic products, the Wrist Master II, has been a favorite among bowlers for years. This wrist brace features breathable material, a metal support system, and adjustable straps to ensure the perfect fit. The design contours to your wrist, palm, and forearm, making it comfortable to wear while keeping you cool and in control of your game.

Benefits of Using a Wrist Brace

You should you consider using a wrist brace if you struggle with maintaining proper wrist position. The brace prevents your wrist from bending backward, keeping it in a neutral position. This allows your hand to stay behind the bowling ball until the moment of release, leading to a consistent roll and better performance.

Master White Textured Tape

Piece of White Textured Tape

Tape is used to increase or decrease the size of your thumb hole. For example, if you keep three pieces of tape in, and your thumb starts to swell, you can easily remove a piece of tape or two to enlarge the hole and accommodate the swelling. This premium pre-cut tape comes in three different sizes, so you can find the perfect fit for your thumb hole. It sticks well but is easily removed without leaving any sticky residue. Whether you're a pro or just starting, this tape can help improve your grip and control.

Tape Insert Tool

Blue Tape Insertion Tool

The Tape Insert Tool is an essential item for every bowler. This tool makes it quick and easy to add or remove thumb tape, ensuring you can adjust your grip on the fly. Precision and speed are key, and this tool delivers both.

Rosin Bag

A good grip is crucial for a successful game. That's where the Rosin Bag comes in handy. This long-lasting grip powder bag improves your gripping power while reducing the need for a tight grip, which can be detrimental. Made from an absorbent silica material, the Rosin Bag keeps your hands dry and ready for action.

Perfect Fit Tool

Master's Multitool

Every bowler's bag should include the Perfect Fit Tool. This multifunctional gadget combines a bevel knife, tape removal tool, and workout tool in one. Constructed from heavy-duty metal and wood, it even comes with a small black suede storage pouch. Whether you need to carve out the thumb hole or remove tape, this tool has you covered.

Using the Bevel Tool

When using the bevel tool, be careful not to apply too much pressure. The blade should glide smoothly around the thumb hole, not dig into it. Let the tool do the work and avoid taking chunks out of the hole to keep your ball in top shape.

Skin Patch

Skin Patch Kit with liquid and cotton pads

Blisters can be a real game-killer. Master Industries offers a Skin Patch that’s waterproof, fast-drying, and transparent. Each package contains a 1/4 oz. bottle of Skin Patch with an applicator brush, cotton, and patches. It's perfect for covering and concealing blisters, ensuring you stay comfortable and focused on your game.

How to Apply

Lay the cotton patch over your blister and paint the liquid on top; allow it to dry, hardening into a thin layer. Make sure to test the fit of your thumb hole after applying the skin patch to make sure you do not need to take a piece of tape or two out.

Master Shoe Slide

If your shoes are causing you trouble on the lanes, the Master Shoe Slide offers a quick fix, slipping over the front of any bowling shoe to ensure a smooth approach.
