Being a good bowler is about reliability, quality and precision. It is these same core principles that the Hensell Family has been successfully employing since it began to manufacture the Henselite Lawn Bowl in Australia, almost eighty years ago. It was a passion for bowls and a drive for consistency that led the late R. W. Hensell to first invent the plastic bowl in 1930. The most significant innovation in Lawn Bowls in the history of the game, the move to plastic from wood and rubber bowls allowed the bowl to maintain its shape under varying climatic conditions. Today we are still just as passionate about bowls and making the most accurate bowls in the world. Each bowl that comes out of our Melbourne factory is a result of highly-tuned precision engineering and we are always striving to better our product. As the game of lawn bowls has changed over the years, so too has Henselite. What started out as a small family business making one style of lawn bowl, now makes a bowl to suit the local conditions wherever you are in the world and supplies clothing, bags and accessories for the complete bowler. Now overseen by the 4th generation of Hensells, Henselite is the biggest manufacturer and distributor of Lawn Bowls worldwide and has won 3 Australian Export Awards and been inducted into the Helms Foundation Hall of Fame in the U.S.A. for outstanding achievement in Lawn Bowls. We are pleased to be able to give back to the sport that has fostered the growth of this great Australian company. Henselite is proud to have supported bowls and bowlers at all levels of the game including through the sponsorship of development programs such as Bowls Australia’s Get on the Green, instigating and sponsoring the first Australian Schoolboy Championships, supporting Greenkeeper Associations and supporting bowls for people with disabilities through organizations such as Australian Blind Bowlers Association. Internationally Henselite has worked to promote and develop the sport throughout Asia including supplying equipment for China’s first bowling green in Guangzhou. Henselite has contributed financially to every World Championships since they began in 1966 as well as continuing to individually support many of the World’s top bowlers and rising stars. Henselite is not standing still. Bowls continues to change. As a new generation of bowlers discovers the excitement of this great sport while adapting when, where and how it is played to meet the modern lifestyle, Henselite will continue to create products that suit the twenty-first century bowler but also carry on the company's tradition of reliability, quality and precision.

Henselite Dreamline XG Black
Following the enormous success of the Henselite Dreamline bowl since its introduction almost a decade ago, we are proud to introduce the next generation...the Dreamline XG.

At Henselite we feel we have made a great bowl, even better.

The Dreamline XG is a superb all-round bowl. The key to its success is its density which creates maximum stability without compromising its comfort in the hand. This enhanced stability and its predictable line make it so versatile, it's at home on all surfaces from North to South and East to West, even in the windiest of conditions.

The Dreamline XG is characterised by a clean, constant arc with a holding finish to the head.
It provides the ultimate in comfort, stability and consistency for all bowlers from social to
competitive and elite level.

The new Dreamline XG has three improvements from the previous Dreamline model:

1. Greater Material Density
This gives the bowl unprecedented stability in all conditions. The Dreamline XG has a more holding finish than the original Dreamline. This ensures its adaptability to the wide variety of surface speeds encountered throughout Australia, from the fast greens of QLD and NSW to the holding greens down South, as well as synthetics and carpets.

2. Fine-tuned shape
Mass has been re-distributed on the shoulders of the bowl without affecting the sides. This model of weight distribution will ensure its line stays true, no matter what green surface or weather conditions you play in.
The Dreamline XG will have the same comfort in the hand that its predecessor was famous for so it will still give the bowler excellent control on the delivery.

The Dreamline XG’s improved shape, when combined with the increased material density, enhances its stability and predictability in windy conditions. It also ensures that the bowl will maintain its momentum for better performance on drives and weighted shots.

3. Re-positioned grip
An enhanced grip is repositioned lower down on the bowl. Many modern coaches advise the bowler to hold the bowl with the thumb at its natural resting point. The re-positioned Dreamline XG grip is aligned with this point, allowing for a more natural delivery.

Try a set today and we’re sure you’ll agree that these changes make the Dreamline XG the ultimate Australian all-round bowl
