I couldn't think of a way to get the entire question in the title.  For you pros out there.  Does the material removed from a bowling ball equal the weight of an interchangeable thumb insert? If it does not, wouldn't that affect the balance and roll of the ball?

The insert/sleeve combination acts like a very large thumbhole. If you were converting a ball from a standard thumbhole to switch grips you will probably change the ball reaction a bit. I'm pretty sure my converted equipment began rolling earlier after I switched. It was a subtle change, but enough to notice.
