Light or Heavy Ball?
Choose a light ball. Yes, that’s right!
Even though you might want to show off your manly strength by bowling the heaviest ball around down the lane like a god. It might also be fun to see the pins fly in the air when a heavy ball hits them, but if you want to bowl strikes, consider lightening up a bit. To bowl strikes, you want the pins to hit each other, and not just fly up in the air.
Heavy balls make pins fly in the air; lighter balls make the pins hit each other. Many pros these days have started using the 14 1/2 or 15 pound balls because of the advantage lighter balls provide. So go ahead. Use that rookie ball without shame and stack up your points!
