Re: Two hander fighting extremely high track

Juha says to roll it off of the wrist starting about a foot before the ankle (he says it happens when opposite hand leaves the ball). In the video, his wrist appears to stay fixed as if he has a wrist guard on (this is what I meant by not hitting up on ball and why Juha wants loose fingers). You mig...

Re: Two hander fighting extremely high track

Keep the pin above the line from his PAP to top of middle finger. Juha says that the best way to get off middle finger is to release earlier. He does not want fingers in ball past knuckle and he wants holes fairly loose. avoid hitting up. Looks like Joe is trying to do what Mo recommends with ball s...

If you do drill the thumb first, how do you compensate for the finger inserts? I know if you drill the fingers first, you don't really need a cut-to-cut span and just use a full span measurement.
I just measure the inserts and subtract that from the cut to cut measurement.

Re: No Thumb - One handed??

The drilling patterns you posted (viewtopic.php?f=15&t=14573), are only for symmetrical balls. Best way for asymmetrical layouts (no thumb) is to use very large drilling angles. I like 90* with a 45* VAL angle. The higher ratio helps retain tilt a little longer (although with very short pin to PAP l...

Re: High diff. core/low flare layout vs. med diff/regular la

I am lost on this as well. If I had a strong ball such as a hammer ripped or something and put a low flare layout on it, I would use it in a situation where I am already using a strong ball, but it is sort of over reacting in the backend and either too sharp of backend or it is covering too many bo...

Re: High diff. core/low flare layout vs. med diff/regular la

I appreciate the responses I have received so far but I think they are missing the main point of my question. I am not asking how flare affects ball motion, I am asking why (or if) reducing the flare on a high differential ball causes the ball to flare differently than a ball that comes with a medi...

Re: Layout Recommendation

I thought Mo stated no thumbs should avoid 2.5 to 4 inches? More hook, 4.5 to 5.5 and 2.5 to 1 for low flare? In symmetrical balls the 4.5 to 5.5 would be low flare. Mo said to avoid 2.5 to 4 inches because under most circumstances a no thumb bowler does not need that much motion (they are trying t...

Re: Fingers across the back not up the back

Some people do it by cocking hand (not cupping). puts all the weight on your pointer finger which is in line with your wrist/arm/elbow and has fingers aimed left (for right hander).

Re: PAP Question

While practicing recently, I decided to measure my pap on the 3 balls I was using. I was surprised each one was different. Can the pap vary depending on the ball and layout? After throwing what I thought was a good release with each ball, I traced the first oil ring and then used my spinner at home...

Re: Rght lane playing far left, ball return in the way

Anyone that can play left where they have to play 4th or 5th arrow, which version do you use to throw the ball. Version #1 Stand as far left as you can with your left foot, then just keep drifting far left once you pass the ball return until you are as far left as you need in order to throw the ang...

Re: Completely Lost With Layouts...

Mo says all the rules still apply (Val Angle/ Drilling Angle/ Pin to PAP distance) ;Therefore, you can use all the layouts that fit your specs. The easiest way that I have found is to layout the ball as if you were a lefthander. Use you horizontal and vertical measurements, but before you add lines ...

Re: Cover strength and core strength

How can you determine if a ball is core dominant or cover dominant? Are there any guidelines for this? The diff. ratio gives the core strength. From the wiki glossary: Differential Ratio, or diff. ratio, is an indicator of the level of asymmetry of the core. The differential ratio is equal to the q...
