"The biggest reason I started using Bowling This Month was due to their ball reviews. I needed something to help distinguish differences in balls within one manufacturer and across manufacturers. I've been a subscriber for many years now and along the way also discovered their articles could help my bowling techniques."

- David Sellers (bowler and Bowling This Month subscriber)
