    Tell me about it...sigh, Playstation 4 is coming out soon I payed 600$ for a PS3 seemingly last week (it feels that way really I got it release day) I don't even remember playing more then a few different games on it.

    I'm going to wait honestly. I bought a brand new xbox when it came out and I got the red rings. I want to wait for the slimmer, more improved ones with tons of space.

    Plus, I rarely get chances of playing these days

      Oh, so you don't need a heavy ball? Well that's a relief..just gotta get the technique down.

        well, um it's kind of hard to explain.

        you don't need a heavy ball for the ball to hook, you need a heavy ball for the pins to all fall down in any consistent fashion, with balls less then 14 pounds you can throw 10 absolutely perfect shots and maybe get lucky if you get 3 strikes out of it.

        it's the physics of the situation...your ball deflects off the pins (pins are heavy and very far apart...it doesn't look like it but trust me I've been back there lol) with a light ball even if you do everything right the ball is going to deflect too much for any type of consistently striking shot.

        on the bright side, even if you don't throw any strikes and only throw spares you can still throw a 190, spares are more important then strikes....a VERY accurate bowler with a 10-12 pound ball can probably average in the 180's..never gonna get over a 200 average with a light ball though.

        • I always use heavy balls for a lot of pins.

          When I only need 1 or 2, I go with the light ball. I always feel like it gives me more accuracy.

              this can be a good idea, my spare ball is actually 14 just because, that said a light ball can sometime make you less accurate too because your arm is accustom to a certain weight swinging from it less weight can make you swing to fast and miss your mark...

              it's like a baseball bat...a lighter bad can give you more speed sure...but if the pitcher throws a mean changeup you might end up way infront of the pitch where as if you were using a heavier bat you might have gotten a piece.
