How would my bowling game suffer if I bowled with an oblong bowling ball?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26879points) April 12th, 2014

If I forsook bowling with a round bowling ball and bowled with an oblong or wafer-shaped bowling ball how would my game suffer? Since I don’t bowl anyhow, would my game really suffer since I have not anyway? Should I worry about bowling with an oblong ball if I ever start bowling? Are you bowled over by this question?

No idea but I would have thought you wouldn’t be able to put the correct spin on it needed to get a strike.

It depends how bad you are now. If you are a lousy bowler today, then an oblong ball won’t make an appreciable difference.

Put up the baby bumpers and you’ll not be disappointed.

You don’t need a ball at all. Since your bowling is only imaginary, then your balls might as well be imaginary, too.

Bowling is the lamest “sport” ever. Just say “NO” to bowling!
No bowling, no balls needed. Take up something cool like archery or fish spearing. lol

On a well oiled lane you could probably toss it down lane with a 2 handed throw in a helicopter spin and the extra width of the oblong ball would probably then give you an advantage of knocking down more pins with even a bad throw. My son is a crazy ass 2 handed bowler who would love to prove this theory. He also has an Xbox bowling game that you can choose of all types of balls a boulder and a coconut to bowl with. The coconut is a pretty damn good ball to bowl with! :)

Unless everyone played with oblong balls, you’d lose.
