Is a 12 pound bowling ball too light?
A 12 lb ball will deflect more than a heavier ball so it doesn’t have the driving forward “force” that a heavier ball would have.

A bowling ball should weigh 10 percent of your body weight (up to 16 pounds), which means you really shouldn’t be grabbing, say, an 8-pound ball if you weigh 150 pounds. You want some weight to the ball, but it shouldn’t be so heavy that it’s uncomfortable.
How fast do pro bowlers throw?
Most Pro Bowlers will release the ball anywhere from 20-22 mph at the release point and will impact the pins at 17 or 18 mph. By delivering the ball faster than this speed range, the Pro Bowler is in danger of less than optimum pin carry.
Is bowling straight bad?
Straight bowling is often preferred by stronger bowlers who want to hit the pins with power, as this style allows you to throw as hard as you can without affecting the trajectory of the shot. As long as the ball is on a straight line, the extra power only helps matters.
Do bowling balls wear out?

Can a cracked bowling ball be fixed?
