It is better to use a 14 pound bowling ball over a 15 pound bowling ball?

What pound bowling ball you use depends on your body type and age. If you are a bit bigger and stronger you are ganna want a heavier ball cause it will hit harder. If you were to use a light ball being big and strong it would just bounce off the pins rather then knocking them down. So if you are more comfortable with a 15 lb ball then i would go with that because it would most likely hit harder.

What is a strike in bowling?

Knocking down all 10 pins with first ball. If you throw a ball in the gutter on the first ball and then knock them all down with the second ball, it is a spare not a strike. A strike is when you knock all of the bowling pins down on the first try. If you don't knock any down the first try, but on the second try you knock them all over, it is condsidered a spare because it took you two tries to knock them all over. It means that when you throw the bowling ball, you knock all pins (10) down in one throw. a strike is all 10 pins knocked down in one try a spare is all 10 pins knocked down in two consecutive tries in the same frame. Ten points plus the pins of the next two balls you roll. It could be as little as ten (if you roll two gutter balls) and as high as 30 if you get two strikes. It means knocking down 10 pins:Thats Good
