What we offer

Sidewinder Strikes is one of the only publicly accessible bowling pro shops in Elmore County, ID. We are professionally trained and continually update our knowledge base with regard to new technologies and products.


We carry the latest in bowling equipment, from balls to accessories, and if we don't have it, we can probably find it for you. Orders usually take less than a week and our prices are competitive!


We do everything from drilling new equipment to servicing your existing products, and if it just doesn't fit you anymore, we can fix it so it does. We can even resurface most old bowling balls so they are like new.


We love our customers - they are the reason we are in business. Our goal is to serve you and give you the best possible experience - if there's something we can do to help, please let us know!

About Sidewinder Strikes

Sidewinder Strikes Pro Shop started in the deserts of California in December of 2015.  We were fortunate to be trained by two of the best drillers in the business, Ric Hamlin (Steve Cook Bowling Supply) and Scott Luba (Bowler’s Experience), and we have continued to hone our skills and increase our knowledge base by attending the Bowl Expo conventions and network with other pro shop owners.  The shop moved to Mountain Home, ID, in June of 2019 and we look forward to many years serving Elmore County and the surrounding communities!

Who we are

"I consider myself a decent bowler. Average usually several pins over 200, have thrown a few 300s. But, the knowledgeable and friendly staff have made me an even better bowler. Matt and Lyn know their stuff when it comes to deciding on your ball, picking a layout and getting the right drilling to fit your hand perfectly. Matt will also run out onto the lanes and make sure that not only is the ball right for your style, but he is quick to help tweak your style to add those extra pins to your average. If you are looking for a pro shop who knows their stuff Sidewinder Strikes is the one."

I am in no way shape or form the best bowler out there. But I love knowing that if I have a question or concern, the friendly staff at the Sidewinder Strikes Pro Shop will help in any way they can! They are patient with all of my questions and indecisiveness. Plus, they give me all the information I need to make the best decisions. I love our local Pro Shop!!!!"

"Sidewinder Strikes has been my go-to pro shop for the past few years. Lyn has drilled two balls for me and they’re honestly the best fitting drill jobs I’ve ever had. The staff is very professional and knowledgeable. They were able to analyze my style and suggest the best ball options based on their analysis. They were also able to find me a very specific style of shoes I had been looking for! I can’t imagine going to any other shop for my bowling needs."
