    There is another versions of the Impulse Measure for use on crown green. Cost is 50 including delivery. It is the one on the right and as with the original measure it fits easily in the pocket and affordable for all bowlers. There are now over 2000 of the original pocket measure in use worldwide. The Crown Green guys should consider contacting Impulse for a bulk purchase. On the same note our indoor club obtained funding for ventilation from the same fund - 20k.

    Forgive my ignorance but why is there a different one for crown green?

    The Bowlsline Compact laser is a universal measure suitable for all bowls games.

    The Impulse Measure measures from bowl to jack and is calibrated for the laser to hit the centre of the jack. It also does not require additional targets to be placed against the bowl or jack. Crown green jacks are larger so the laser has to be slightly higher.

    There are three versions of the Impulse Measure - 1. the standard 2. crown green and 3. the umpire. The umpire version has the screen facing upwards but is not quite small enough to fit easily into a pocket. For bowlers who have the standard measure and fancy the umpire one, this is available for a small upgrade charge.

    The Bowlsline target plates compensate for any unevenness or imperfections in the playing surface, negate the curvature of the bowl and eliminate human error.

    On the contrary, the addition of plates introduces human error by poor placement e.g. small gaps between the bowl and the target plate and plates placed at a slight angle allowing shorter distances or longer distances to be measured. The introduction of targets allows the possibility of foul play - something that the laser measures were trying to eliminate. As a physicist I am also surprised that the plates are black. Black is the most absorbent colour to laser light and surely for accuracy the more light returned to the sensor the better. The use of black plates will have a serious effect for measuring longer distances outdoor and certainly in bright sunlight. Also as a physicist, the curvature has little effect as the light returned to the sensor comes from the bowls closest point (normal incidence) as any laser light reflected from other points will never reach back to the sensor. What the plates actually do is to eliminate the manufacturers need to compensate for the variable angle the laser beams coming out of the units as done for each Impulse Measure.

    These points were taken into consideration in design and testing and it was concluded the Bowlsline system with target plates was the best method.
