For me, I've recognised that the couple of ounces makes a difference in this respect on these types of greens, but others too have mentioned this.

    two comments, from one person, on incomplete information - doth not allow for a fully reasoned conclusion to be drawn. I have added further info to that post. In the end, it matters not one jot. On some greens, that have poor root depth I take the good decision to play with a middle-weight bowl. This stops me from cutting up the green with the heavy-weight bowls. This seems simple, sensible and logical. 4 ounces lighter stops the problem.

    Thanks for the information lads all very interesting but not really relevant to my original post which asked what draw the Almark Crusader has. it it a a wide drawing or mid-bias model. I think John said wide drawing but I'm interested to hear from anyone else who has a view.

    Royal Mail are quite costly for postage of heavy/bulky items - Hermes, the courier, deliver a set of bowls for about 8 (including collection charge), and are quick and reliable.

    most of the items i sell are valued between 150-300 ,and i cannot get that for 8 with decent insurance.But i guess you can,with reference to the 10-12 pounds i quoted that is a very general one looking at EBay postage costs. and i secretly new that you would be having the last word,i hope after you sold the 20 sets you found a set you liked?

    I found a set for grass very early on that I preferred, and nearly always use those in matches. but just liked trying other sets and seeing how they performed (and am still doing that!); I've since kept two others sets, for short-mat and the all-weather surface. I can see that,with more expensive items, insurance would increase the cost somewhat.
