Bowling coach Kim Terrell-Kearney speaks with research engineer Emily Troutman about bowling lane surfaces and hardness. Not all lane surfaces are the same and can create different ball reactions. Troutman explains the differences in color, surface and hardness, and shows how lanes are tested. She also shows how a bowling ball leaves a footprint on the lane.
