What causes bowling ball flare?
With the pin to the right of the fingers (for a righty), you get more flare. That’s because now when you release the ball, it begins to roll on an axis which is not preferred. So it will migrate to it’s preferred spin axis as it rolls. This migration creates flare.

What does DIFF mean in bowling?
Differential is an indicator of a bowling ball’s track flare potential. Bowling balls with lower differentials are more stable, therefore generating less track flare potential. Bowling balls with higher differentials are unstable, therefore generating a much larger track flare potential.
What does RG mean in bowling?
High RG. The USBC defines RG ( radius of gyration ) as: Measured in inches, radius of gyration is the distance from the axis of rotation at which the total mass of a body might be concentrated without changing its moment of inertia. Simply put, RG is when your ball begins to rev up.

What balls do professional bowlers use?
Most pro bowlers use 16-pound balls, although more than you think use 15-pounders. Another method is to add one or two pounds to the weight of the house ball you normally use. A heavier ball drilled specifically to your hand will seem to weigh about the same as a house ball two pounds lighter.
Is a 14 pound bowling ball too light?
The only point here is that the lighter the object at the end of that pendulum, the more potential you have to “muscle” it. In time, this will settle down. If it doesn’t then the ball is likely too light for you, period. There is potential for 14 pound to hook more than 15 pounds.
