The Karen Murphy interview
You made the decision to join Team Aero. What was the reason for this change?
I’ve had a long standing and successful relationship with Taylor Bowls but the time was right for me to make a change. I’m a player who strives to continually improve my game so after having played with and against Aero players, I was becoming more and more intrigued about the bowls and if they would enhance my play. I’ve made many changes over the years such as developing my fitness, introducing different types of practice, so it’s crazy to think why wouldn’t I change my bowls if there is a more accurate bowl available.
So what happened when you tried the bowls?
I loved them. My first bowl was a toucher! The initial thing that drew me to the bowls was the way they felt in my hand. The scoop grip is awesome. The bowl sits in my hand perfectly, meaning a smooth release every time. I also found that the line of an AeroBowl is a much more consistent, predictable line and weight is easier to play too as they hold the line longer.
And is it as the marketing material says, same line every time?
I’ve got to be honest I was very skeptical about this but now I’ve played with the bowls, I can hand on heart say its true. And having visited the factory to see how they are made, and the accuracy of the process, I can see why Aero are the only brand to guarantee that every set in a model is the same. This is a huge plus.
In a latest advert, it says you would sell your bowls after matches. Is this correct and have you done this before?
Yes I will and the only reason is because I now know I can get another set exactly the same. And no I haven’t done this before.
Apart from the bowls, are there any other differences?
Yes, a few actually. The shoes are so comfy and provide great support, which is really important when you’re on the green for hours on end. And the bags are awesome quality.
So was there any other reason you joined Aero?
It’s great to be part of a brand that’s growing so rapidly, who are reinvesting in the game and are constantly coming out with new things.
Finally what lies ahead for you now?
As one of Aero’s sponsored players, I’ll be doing a number of demo days, working with and meeting bowlers around the country which is something I love doing. I’ll be on hand to help with their game as well as give them advice and guidance on the right Aero model, size and grip for them.
CSX Road Test
Aero made famous its CX bag and the two bowls carriers contained in the bag, an invention by Aero.
Superbly designed and made using water resistant and UV stable material it became the worlds most popular luxury bowls bag. Made in a factory where many famous brands are made such as Samsonite.
12 years after its introduction Aero have redesigned the bag. The new CSX Ultraglide bag is stronger in every respect from the zippers to the pull and carry handles and the biggest innovation of 4 wheels so the bag can glide along instead of being pulled.
Multiple road tests by various bowlers have demonstrated that the new CSX is the bag to beat.
They were asked to pull both bags, one in each hand and give their opinions..
The new CSX Easiglide Ultraglide won hands down.
Never has their been a bag this easy to pull. As one stated it really is Chalk and Cheese.’ The CSX is incredibly easy to use and move around’ says Karen Murphy.
Easiglide, the Ultraglide CSX is easy to pull, with an abundance of well designed space, includes two two bowls bags and space for everything a bowler needs.

What our customers say about aero bowls
I have to say my experience with the new Evolve has been great. Somehow or other the draw seems to get me close most of the time. I won a game 36/13 today and could not do a thing wrong. I am very happy also helps to have size 2 instead of size 3. I have recommended Evolve to members at our club at Chatswood. It is the nice gentle turn/draw that seems to find the jack as a natural target, Cheers!
First results with the new Optima Z-Scoop bowls are very promising. I seem to be getting much more accuracy of line which I put down to the grip. I never paid much attention to finger placement on a bowl before but I now suspect that some of my wilder bowls were the result of a misplaced finger. The Z scoop makes it very easy to put the middle finger dead centre on the bowl with the two adjoining fingers sitting in the scoop on each side. I think this also helps with weight control as the Optima now sits more comfortably on the fingers.
I just wanted to let you know how much I love my new bowls. I also wanted tell you that the bowls shoes are the most comfortable shoes I have ever known. I tell everyone about them. I have also referred several people to come down to your shop to buy dynamics. I know you will look after them. Would you please let Walter know how appreciative I am for all he has given me.
