Aero Models

Aero bowls are totally different to all other brands - here's why

We use sophisticated 7 AXIS robots to make a bowl and as such we are able to offer a huge variety of models, grips, designs and importantly half sizes for all of our models.

Half sizes are crucial for correct fit in the hand, without the perfect fit, don't expect to play consistent bowls.

We offer a variety of grips.

The registered design Z Scoop is our No.1 selling grip.

Our Zig Zag and Aero Dentations are designed for bowlers that prefer the grip to be level with the surface of the bowl.We also offer plain rings.

It's the same line every time.

Our robots cannot change things while making a set. They follow a sophisticated programme.Our bowls do not move around in manufacture and we polish using the same system that polishes Rolex watches.No Aero Bowl is ever altered after manufacture and no Aero Bowl NEEDS to be altered after manufacture.

We guarantee the same line every time - but a dream for the Henselite XG 'Dreamline' or Taylor any other brand. The Henselite company are for sale as a loss making business,,,out of touch, out of date and outbowled by Aero who are  the worlds biggest manufacturer of bowls and the leading brand. Taylor we understand is also looking for a buyer.....out of touch, out of date and outbowled by the sophisticated Aero Brand.

Only Aero offer over 40 colours and bowlers can select their own choices.

Only Aero offer the bowler a choice of models to suit varying conditions and styles of play.

Aero are the most Advanced Bowls Ever Maunfactured and are the No 1 Brand in Australia and New Zealand.

Aero - The choice of  of the doyens of the sport

Kelvin Kerkow, Alex Marshall and Karen Murphy.

Australian Bowls Models


A premium model designed to be used by any Bowler whether a novice or world champion.

Suitable for all manner of grass or artificial greens faster than 12 seconds.

Engineered for stability while playing in the varying conditions found during a game.

The Optima has become Australia's and New Zealand's premium model.

Used by Karen Murphy, Brett Wilkie, Alex Marshall and Kelvin Kerkow, to name just a few of the hundreds of Champions that have won using an Optima.

Major benefits.

Bowlers that prefer a wider draw-line (but not old fashioned wide) that is forgiving yet accurate and will allow the bowl to go around or under any bowl on the green to gain the shot.

Alex Marshall says:  "The Optima for me is an excellent draw bowl with the breeze or against it.



A major project writing an algorithm that allowed the Aero robots to engineer a bias between the Optima and Dynamic and produce a model with exceptional hold on the weighted shot.

Very stable in the breezy conditions generally encountered in a game due to the exclusive "Harbour Bridge" trajectory that gives the bowl more time to turn to the target.

Available in Z Scoop from sizes 2 to 4 including the all important half sizes as well as the Zig Zag and Dentations in sizes 3, 3.5 and 4 and  plain rings in sizes is 3 and 4

Kelvin kerkow uses a set - "not too tight not too wide, just perfect and the extra hold is clearly seen".

Major Benefits

You prefer a mid bias bowl with extra hold.

You want a bowl that works on any green surface faster than 14 seconds.



Favoured by bowlers who prefer a tighter line to the target.

Engineered to still go under or around any bowl in your way, the Dynamic requires good weight control to be effective.

At it's best on good quality green services faster than 15 seconds which then allow the precision bias to perform at its optimum.

Green speed is important when using a Dynamic, under 15 seconds and your choice of shots is somewhat limited as the bowl may not turn as expected. 

Many Aero bowlers favour having two sets that cover all conditions.

Optima or Evolve and a Dynamic or TurboPro will cover most conditions.

Choose this bowl:

Only if you have good quality greens that run at 15 seconds or above.

You prefer a bowl that has a narrower bias than an Evolve or Optima bearing in mind good weight control is required to score.



Our narrowest (tightest) bowl in the range.

Suitable for top quality greens that are wind protected and always run at 16 seconds plus.

The TurboPro still has turn and will perform with good quality weight with perfection. Ask Peter Taylor - currently Australia's No.1 who uses them to perfection.

Don't expect a bowl so tight that it almost goes straight.Aero don't make bowls that go straight as no top bowler favours such trajectories.

A question that we are often asked:

'How much narrower than a Dynamic is a TurboPro?'.

The answer is approximately 15 to 25cms tighter depending on the green conditions, smoothness of delivery and how one stands on the mat.

Choose this bowl if:

Your greens are always perfect, with minimal wind and run 16 seconds plus.

You have better than average weight control.

You own a set of Optima or Evolve for conditions when a TurboPro will not be suitable.

DEFIANCE- An ideal 2nd set

Our widest bowl for Australia and New Zealand.

This model is designed for use on Greens that always run at less than 13 seconds.

For faster Greens use the Optima if you prefer a bowl with less turn.

Should Greens run faster than 13 seconds one will need to take care to take correct grass to  obtain best results.

On imperfect greens the Defiance works well because of the increased bias.

With weight - as with all Aero bowls the Defiance holds the line remarkably well.

Use this bowl if:

Your green are generally less than 13 seconds.

You prefer a wider bowl than our Optima.

Excellent on slow carpet, especially those carpets that track.


No Aero bowl is designed to go straight.

All Aero bowls have a perfectly shaped bias that allows turn for deadly accurate bowling.



Aero know that playing conditions vary dramatically in different countries where bowls are played.

Australia and New Zealand are known for the quickest Greens in the world, thus we make specific models for these countries.

All other countries have greens that are generally a lot slower and Aero have designed a range specifically for these areas .....  they are

Quantum - Groove - Sonic -Maxim.


An Aero bowl that is the best seller in Australia and New Zealand. The Optima in the above countries can only be used on Indoor surfaces… cannot be used outdoors in the countries mentioned above. Indoor greens need to run at 15 seconds or more measured over a distance of 90 feet. Anything less and the turn will not suit the majority of bowlers.



This model is designed for overseas indoor surfaces.

An even turn and excellent holes on the weighted shot.

We have surveyed many overseas indoor Greens and have found them to be the perfect match for the Quantum.

Imperfect services are handled with ease.

Slow uneven surfaces are part of the Quantums strength.

Tracking under or around bowls with ease whilst playing with weight makes the Quantum suitable for all pain position.

Choose this bowl.
