I use a 16 pound ball and throw it really hard because it's not about the amount of pins you knock down, it's about making as loud as a sound as possible when the ball hits the pins.

Nice!

Back in the day they used to put 21 pound balls out at the lanes in Hamilton I went to for rock and bowl. Those baby's made a big bang when they struck...that was fun

By the way I don't bowl with 1 hand. I use this technique:

YouTube - Jason Belmonte - Two Handed Bowler

My friends thought I was an idiot bowling with 2 hands.

What was your high score? Why would we hate you if you were particularly good or bad?

Usually go bowling a few times a year. I am not that good but its pretty fun just to hang out and try.

My best is like 160 something. I usually just go a little over 100 or under. I need a lot more practice. lol

Bowled a 271, 243 and 244 last night in league. Raised my league-leading average to 227 I lost the triple crown though..(high single, high triple and high average) as a guy bowled a 371 so I have my mission before end of year. There's money to be won

I once got 5 Strikes in a row, they didnt even have an animation for me.. Other than that I average a 125.. haha

They say you should use a ball that is 10% of your body weight but an 18 pound balls just seems outrageous.. Your thoughts?

I never really received any instruction in 10pin but yeah I think if you're 180ish than 18 is pretty heavy...it's really a comfort thing though. If you're a strong 180 you might be able to handle the heavy ball.

I used to use a 21 lb when i played for fun... granted i'm 225lbs

The bigger the ball, the more action you get on the pins...it's a question of how well you handle the heavier ball.

Final week of the first session for my saturday pro league. Bowled 198, 232, 248, 218 and 235. We ended up in 3rd place... We finished a single point behind the teams tied for first. Still should be a good payout next week. I finished in the top 6 averages, 3rd I think with a 231 so i'll be a captain and get to draft my team for the second 10 week session
