Re: Two Handed Bowling Styles: Type "O", Type "P".

Just to add, if an O style two hander slides forward with his or her hips perpendicular to the intended LOP, the circle will misalign left and they will tend to miss left (for a right hander). O style two handers need to have somewhat open hips at delivery, their slide foot will most likely be diago...

Re: Direction and Line of Play

Hips, chest and swing should be aligned with intended line of play from address to release. How much angle? Ok, if ball is being release on 10 to hit 10 at the arrows in a line towards the bottom left corner of the 6 pin (10 board), launch angle is zero... Now if you were to lay the ball down on 39 ...

Re: Two hander fighting extremely high track

Oh and don’t try to fix his follow through, this is a symptom not a cause. Release drills and swing and slide drills will help isolate the parts of his technique he needs to work on.

Re: Two hander fighting extremely high track

A proper rear view video aligning swing slot with line of play would help diagnose better but here it goes. 1)We need to make sure the ball is substituting the ball side leg on the way forward, can’t really tell from video but this is essential to get into the best release position possible. If he c...

Re: Should I get' the phase 3?

All ten pins, ringing or not are caused by deflection. It sounds like your ball is not getting to the roll phase soon enough. Learn about the three phases of ball motion (skid, hook, roll) and develop an eye for watching your ball transition from skid to hook and then from hook to roll. Watch it lea...

Re: Layout advice for Mrs. DMSarch

My daughter used to have a Widow Urethane and it has a marked PSA, if you look at their website there is no photo of the generic core and the diff is higher than the Pink which does have a generic core. Email Mitch (Beasley) just to make sure but I am 98% certain it’s an asymmetrical... same as with...

Re: Layout advice for Mrs. DMSarch

The Brunswick Prisms both have good numbers in 13 lbs. If you can find one, the Radical Ludicrous and the Ludicrous Solid are probably the beat asymmetricals available in 13lbs. A very good Symmetrical block at that weight is the Cyclone core Ebonite uses in their Destiny line, all great balls. Fina...

TD is a really good bowler but your style doesn’t have to be like his, just the fundamentals he has like finishing at a great leverage position. Post video and we can help.

Re: Same ball different layout for league

Bear in mind symmetricals will have the PSA on or near the thumb so a longer pin to pap will yield a smaller drilling angle... in other words cg position doesn’t matter. You could go X x 4 x 25 and have a different surface. For example if you have 500/2000 on your original Hustle Ink, you can go 500...

Re: Layout advice for Mrs. DMSarch

Adding or removing tape once or twice per night is very common, if she is releasing good and has no pain or blisters I say leave it like it is, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Eric Hartwell is really good at prescribing layouts and matching them with balls and surface, thank you Eric. For reference,...

Re: That $%^&* 10 pin

All ten pins are caused by deflection, if you move outside adjust your release to have less axis rotation so that the ball rolls forward easier. Watch your ball and see how and where it goes through the three phases of ball motion. A perfect strike for a right hander, the ball will hit the 1, the 3,...

Re: Pain in Thumb Joint

Seems like hand is not relaxed in the ball with your current fit. If you are putting thumb in all the way, fingers in up to the fingertip crease and not squeezing, then it is possible your fit has changed. This could happen for various reasons such as aging or a change in release technique. Linear p...
