If you can handle a 13 maybe you should try a 14 and Grab something
like a Total NV... Crud, in this sport the ball does most of work in
the swing...

Thats a tall order. Once a ball gets below a certain weight, the exotic cores are all most meaningless.
They don't have the mass in the cores anymore.

Easy way would be to just email the ball companys and ask them.
Rotogrip has some because they have a lightwieght Mystic with the Helios core.
Also Storm I think has some.

Heres a link from brunswick, These balls have different cores than pucks&pancakes .
I'd go with the Inferno and BVP lines-

"Dear Brunswick Customer:
Brunswick has created generic core designs for 12 & 13 pound balls in the InfernoŽ, ZoneŽ
and BVP lines.
There will be one generic symmetric core design
used in both the Inferno and BVP lines at 12 & 13
pounds.
And there will be one generic asymmetric design for
the Zone line at 12 & 13 pounds."
