My wife has been bowling with 14lb balls for quite some time now and the last couple of years has been a struggle for her carry. Leaving a ton of 10 pins. And also over the years her speed has gone from 12mph down to barely above 9mph. She doesn't understand why her speed is so low and the ball does not seem heavy for her, but it is what it is.

Since Motiv balls maintain the same cores in all ball weights, would it be in her favor to drop ball weight to increase her speed again?

Hate seeing her being frustrated with those 10s :evil:

Will take any feedback or thoughts from anyone that has done this.

Newbie here, but long time bowler.

Might it be worth your while to seek out a local coach to figure out where the speed has gone? Has her finger fitment changed for some reason causing her to grip the ball harder? Are the lanes using much less oil causing a much earlier roll? There's a few things that can impact speed for lower speed bowlers, but unless there's a physical limitation there now (personal or lanes), speed comes from timing. Around here, coaches are $30/hr. Much cheaper than trying a new ball.
