Re: Simple question about no thumb starting finger pitches

I know Mo recommends MF 1/4" Forward, RF 3/8" Reverse and 7/16" both laterals for right handed two hander no thumb bowlers' starting pitches... There's a difference of 5/8" between the 2 fingers. This makes the MF dominant and is supposed to help with the typical high track/low tilt/tracking over M...

Re: Where and how did static weights originate?

Arkansas wrote:Does any know the history of static weights? How was it decided to use that method of weighing a ball to determine imbalance and why?

To control the amount of weight adjusted to compensate for the weight removed by the drilling holes.

The fan chart in the Wiki Fit will allow you to get CLT pitches while drilling off the grip centerline. We teach it in the Pro Shop Training Class at Innovative.

I'd drill it to read a hair sooner with that ball speed. I'd adjust your suggestion to 50 x 3 3/4 x 25.

Re: need recomendation

Sounds to me like he doesn't have a ball for this condition. He has lots of tricks in his bag, the ability to manipulate all of the release specs. I would recommend 45-4-45 on a strong covered Asymmetrical. This bowler will manipulate his release to find the pocket. The 1:1 ratio will give him a co...

No point in beating a dead horse. It's totally invalid and not worth being on my forum. It's been discredited many times. So I'm locking this thread. Hope you understand.

Re: Shift Bowl Question.

Shift/bowl is the method for introducing the five count system to a four step bowler. Shift/bowl is merely presetting the first step so that all the bowler does is shift their weight on the first count instead of taking a step. The key is to stick your butt out so all your weight is on the right he...

Re: 900G Black Ops layout for mid length and a big move

The balance hole is basically a P3. It is making it a stronger ball as well as making the static weights legal. Now if it was drilled with the balance hole at 5 over 1 up and your PAP is 4 over 1 up the hole is not on the gradient line and Not necessarily flare safe so I am not surprised that you t...
