    Default Bowling tape/tool kit?

    So some guy in my league last night helped me out with some tape for my ball, and he had some kind of kit with a bunch of stuff including a tool that assisted with placing the tape in the ball. Does bowlingball.com sell such a tool kit? I'm asking because I'm about to pull the trigger on a new bag, and figure I might as well add a bowling "toolkit" if they sell one. If you know, please advise?

    Try the bowlingball.com search function.

    was it one like this
    Master Pro Tool Kit

    Master Tape Insert Tool (These are usually way over priced on line, I bought at the lanes for a $1.50)

    Sandpaper. Hands down - 100% fine grit sandpaper! Thumb hole edges, be gone!

    I usually walk into my Pro shop and borrow his bevel tool and file to do fine tuning on my thumb hole.

    My "bowling kit" includes a few different types of tape (personal preference stuff here - have some blue, purple, and green / white 3/4" and 1" and black 3/4"), a tape insert tool, fingernail clippers, super glue (never know when an insert is going to go flying), a pen (also good for fishing out tape stuck at the bottom of the thumb hole), a small pair of scissors, beige tape on a roll, liquid skin, rosin ball, Easy Slide, grip cream, a pocket knife, and band-aids.

    I also keep a small print out of my ball maintenance schedule that I track games on.

    Donna- you forgot the lighter. My fondest memories of my coach growing up were when he lit my 10-year-old thumb on fire to cure the old Blue and Yellow box'd Robby's white fabric/liquid skin patches. lol!
