They all use different ones. Most professionals are sponsored by different Bowling ball compaines, so they all get to pick wich type of ball they would like to use. They do have a few things in common though. They all have reactive cores, and they all weigh about the same, between 12 to 16 pounds.

Pros almost always use a 16 pound bowling ball. In rare cases, when a pro has an injury to their wrist or arm/shoulder, they will use a 15 pound ball.

The best pros are all sponsored by one of the bowling-ball companies. Because all balls are different as are all bowling centers, the best pros own one of every ball their manufacturer sells.

You would like to by the best bowling ball there is someone in the know please respond?

Depends on a lot of things. Mainly, how much do you bowl? It's not really a question of what ball is best, but what ball is best FOR YOU. Do you want to hook the ball a lot (can you)? Do you want it to hook early or late? Do you bowl at an alley that has a lot of oil or just a little on the lanes? The easiest thing to do is talk to the owner of the pro shop at the bowling alley you use. They will recommend a ball that fits the style of bowler that you are.

What is a track in bowling?

A track in bowling is referring to the balls trajectory down the lane. Based on where a bowler aims, the lanes oils conditions, the bowling ball use, their rotation and other factors, the trajectory can be vastly different from game to game. A track can also refer to the oil track on a ball. Some bowlers use this track to determine how the ball is rolling and what part of the ball is actually in contact with the lane.

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.
