Question:

I bowl with a 13lb ball , I would like to get this ball in a little lighter weight. Does it come in 12.75 lbs.

5/14/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

You can request for a 13 even and once its drilled it will be under 13#. Unfortunately, we do not have heavy 12s like that. Unfortunately, we do not have any 13s available anymore, for they have been sold out.
