Currently, we accept Henselite custom bowl orders from Australia only. We plan to offer custom bowls as an option to other countries and regions shortly.

The Henselite Dreamline XG is the perfect bowl for green speeds of 12 – 16 seconds. Its’ wider even turn is more PREDICTABLE and STABLE than a narrower bowl in slower conditions. You can still use the XG’s on greens over 16 seconds but the bias can be quite wide giving the narrower bias bowlers a slight advantage.

Henselite manufactures lawn bowls without grips in sizes 3 and 4 only.
