Does a bowling ball really need to be 10% of body weight?


I’m 5’7, and 150 lbs. I’m looking into getting a bowling ball but I honestly don’t think that I’d be able to throw a 15 pound ball very well. Usually when I go to the bowling alley (recreationally,) I use a 10 pound ball. Thanks for you input. :)
