Question from Facebook:

Q – I have seen where Tony says he didnt lose any carry when he switched from 15 to 14 pounds. I am a senior bowler and I have been using 14 pounds for a number of years, but by the 3rd game the ball feels like it weighs 20 pounds. Would owning a 13 pound ball be helpful, either for the 3rd game, or maybe to switch to 13 for all 3 games? I am currently throwing a 14lb. Hammer Viral(avg. 185) – would going to a 13lb. Viral or balling down to a lesser performing ball be the best thing to do? – Bruce Gray
