I too, debated with myself and thought about switching to 15-pound equipment a few years back, thinking that I would be able to get a higher rev rate with the lighter balls, but my Pro Shop guy, John DeWitt at J.D.'s Pro Shop at my home house, All-Star Lanes in Silverdale, WA, about 40 miles from my home here in Port Townsend, said that I already throw the ball too hard as it is, and I have for the past several years have been fighting losing the ball in the point of release, causing me to drop my right shoulder (which I know I shouldn't be doing considering that I throw the ball straight), and when I am playing outside around 5-8-board, the ball hits the proverbial "Grey Board" or misses right of target.

Should I talk to my Pro Shop guy (John) about gearing down to 15-pound ball next season, after all I am going to be 43 this May, and I think that maybe Father Time and a lack of practice are starting to catch up with me.
