I need some help

Ok, so as you may know Im gonna be bowling for my school in a bit and will be joining a league soon. I am a mid level bowler(135-175) I would hope thats mid level anyways.

Anywho, I am clueless when it comes to buying my own ball. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good bowling ball in mind that reasonably priced? I would like something that is my own, and I want to put some money into it so it is a solid ball(no pun intended) and something that will last.

I know something about layers to the core of the ball, like the more layers the better the ball or something like that.

Any website suggestions?

(and any suggestions where I can get the clear ball with the rose in the middle, as used by bill murray in kingpin)

Get a Rhino, (or other "grippy" surfaced ball). You won't regret it.

Have it drilled for fingertip or semi-fingertip grip.

You'll be the envy of the lanes.

Bowling without alcohol, that should be illegal.

How can I tell if they are "grippy" balls from the internet. The ones that are dull and not shiney?

The websites ive been to give little description.

Thanks for the help though.
