Re: Question on lateral pitch on fingers

I think that there is more variables than that in the modern bowling release. Release efficiency is all about relaxing the muscles at correct timing. Basically there is three aspects in ball rotation speed: the more bowler can get fingers under the ball before release, the more bowler can get finge...

Re: Question on lateral pitch on fingers

Ron Hoppe will start your finger pitches with 1/2 to 3/4 REVERSE. Immerse yourself in the advices given on this forum and best of luck. I’ve yet to see anyone with any significant rev rate using 1/2 to 3/4 rev in the fingers. I’m in his neck of the woods and drilled a couple of his fits for people ...

It allows you to play parts of the lane others cant.
Throwing equipment at a flaw isnt the answer.
Obviously I can do that. As I said I’m “exploring” different layout ideas.

Heavy Volume struggles

I recently got back from the USBC Open Championships. The D/S pattern played tight and slick. My Halo, 60x4.5x30, at 1000 just wouldn’t get up to flush. My Idol, Xx4.5x65, at 500 wasn’t much better. This is the second time is 3 months I’ve run into problems where I was completely in jail. The simple...

Re: Will we ever see another Earl Anthony?

A pure stroker might win a tournament here and there, but will never dominate for even one season ever again. The game has become a power game. It’s no different than golf. If you don’t hit the golf ball at least 265-270 yards IN THE AIR, then you will not routinely compete on the PGA tour. The same...

Re: Spec Changes - Rotogrip Hot Cell Layout

Speed and revolutions need to be off the hand. While i can transpose the time from release to the head pin rpm average is not so easy. Even by your own assessment and thinking you need to adjust totals by 5* degrees is not enough to re-do a whole arsenal. Utilizing the Dual Angle System you can mak...

IT vs Switch Grip

The shop I work in uses the Switch Grip. I really have not been that satisfied with the product. Idk if I simply got a bad batch of inner sleeves, but they wouldn't stay locked in and fall out in the machines or under the ball return. Myself, and my counterpart, are looking at whether or not we shou...

I made a few physical changes and fit changes that has impacted my stats. Rev Rate: 14 revolutions Speed: 2.26 Tilt: 17* AR: 55-60* PAP: 4 7/16, 3/8u Previously, my sweet spot was 105, 1:25:1. I see only minor spec changes, from 105 to 110 with ratios still in the 1.25:1. I need a urethane and the o...

Re: So, I'm getting ready to bowl on a flood

Eric is our resident expert on the layouts, but you'll need something with a short VAL angle to get that ball off the spot. Probably something like 60 x 4 x 30. I'm sure Eric will have the proper suggestion. I wouldn't hesitate to go less on the VAL angle. The amount of volume is going to effectivel...

Re: Track clipping middle finger on release/initial track

Is the pin above the flare safe line for high track players? I.e. line from pap to ring finger is generally considered the flare safe line. I’m guessing with an 80* VAL angle that isn’t the case. So, you could try a flare increasing hole to get the ball to flare a touch more and get it off the finge...

I had an old Freakin Frantic laying around so I drilled up this gentleman’s new fit. The first few shots were a bit rough as he was still squeezing the ball like crazy. I worked with him for almost 45 mins on relaxing his grip, timing and other issues. We managed to get the track off the thumb. It m...
