ALPHA is a full fit bowl with a unique non-slip grip to provide bowlers with superior hand comfort. Comfort in the hand is a major factor in achieving consistent performance.

ALPHA has been tried and tested on all types of surfaces and in all conditions by Australia’s leading bowlers with consistent glowing reports. The steady curved arc and flat finish to the jack are a feature of ALPHA.

ALPHA has a holding line for ‘on-shots’ and an even draw to the jack, especially for dead draws, allowing it to perform to perfection on weighted shots. A combination of precision engineering and advanced design has given the Alpha its superior stability in windy conditions.

“After trying it on all surfaces and under all conditions on the Gold Coast, indoor and out, from 13 to 17 seconds under both windy and still conditions…I was so impressed that I asked Henselite to get me a set immediately!” says Nathan Rice, Commonwealth Games Medallist. “I believe whatever position you play, whether it be, Lead, Second, Third or Skip, Singles pairs Triples or 4’s, you’ll find that you’ll use less weight as ALPHA stands up more and that means you’ll have more bowls in the head.” he continued.

ALPHA is also very competitively priced with the new ALPHA Galaxy Series Speckles breaking the coloured bowls price barrier. Another first with ALPHA.

Henselite - Leaders in lawn bowls, clothing and accessories worldwide - tiger ii

The Tiger II is a contemporary design of bowl with a gentle and predictable trajectory, it is the widest drawing of the 'narrow' biased bowls currently available. The Tiger II perfectly suits the growing trend in many regions to a slightly wider bias, providing added stability. The Tiger II is a truly mid-biased model, that will suit the player looking for a multi purpose set of bowls.


Henselite - Leaders in lawn bowls, clothing and accessories worldwide - selecting a bowl

One way to get the right size, shape and weight is to wrap both of your hands around the widest running surface of a bowl so that your middle fingers touch at the bottom and if your thumbs touch at the top that is your size. A faster green means that the bowl needs to be rolled to take a lot of grass (rolled toward the jack in a wide curve) which makes the bowl take 14 - 19 seconds to reach the jack.


Henselite - Leaders in lawn bowls, clothing and accessories worldwide - classic ii

The Classic II, despite it's narrow draw, is very well suited to slower green speeds of 11 to 13 seconds because of its ability to draw around cluttered heads which normally occur at these lower speeds. It also features a distinctive finish (commonly referred to as a 'hockey stick' finish) which is reminiscent of the original Classic but without the wider draw of the Henselite Original bowl.
