Re: Optimal Axis Rotation

A ball needs to slow down in order to carry, needs to get to the roll phase. To quote Mo “if the ball is hooking into the pocket you will be leaving a lot of ten pins so bring your spare ball”. In today’s game a lot of axis rotation is not needed nor desired, to much axis to isn’t good either. Speed...

Re: Over Rolled Full Roller?

We need to get him to release earlier, he is releasing too much in front. Do some release drills with foot 1-3” behind the line and have him try to roll the ball by his slide shoe heel trying to land the ball behind the foul line. He most likely will not be able to land the ball behind the foul line...

Re: Direction and Line of Play

That's my biggest issue as well - that deep inside line, especially with the ball return in the way. How do you walk sideways, keeping your hips/shoulders in line (perpendicular) to the target while walking a controlled fashion away from the target. . . If you use the American method (not ETT) walk...

Re: Arm swing, hand position, and release

Proper alignment to your line of play is key. If you were going to play 12 board at the arrows looking at a 6 board focal point at the pins (which is the left belly of the 10 pin) your ball should be landing on the 14 board and the right edge of your sliding shoe should be sliding on 19. The ball ne...

Re: Ok ok ok, I'm finally ready to admit I have a problem...

Broken Arrow most of the time not being able to play straight is caused by excessive axis rotation (releasing too much off the side of the ball). A 16 mph monitor ball with 450-500 rpms will go straight with 20-30 degrees axis rotation, many of the youth I coach have these specs and have no problem ...

Re: Ok ok ok, I'm finally ready to admit I have a problem...

I have a similar issue I'm fighting. I'm not a big hooker but have my comfort zone standing near the middle and throwing right up the 7 board. My Squatch pearl goes straight until the breakpoint then turns hard right (lefty here). Last night rolled 208, 254, then the wheels fell off. Lost my line. ...

Re: purple hammer

Cause it’s the best ball ever. Sorry, don’t want to start the urethane argument but if you have 350 rpms Plus and at least 17 mph, are consistent in launch angle, have good control of your roll and are playing sport patterns, a pair of purples can be a great choice if the conditions allow for it, I ...

Yes you can polish urethane and it will go longer, also consider rolling plastic balls, a Track Spare + is a great ball.

Glenn, you can donate your excess balls to youth leagues. Note, Mo was once Del’s teacher, coaches evolve and develop their own theories based on their own empirical data they have gathered and Del has done just that. Not saying that Mo or Del are right or wrong but they both have their logical reas...

Re: Looking for a little help with angles...

If a bowler wants to hit a specific board at the pins passing on a straight line through a specific board at the arrows there is exactly one board where the ball must land on your lay down point. For every board you miss right or left at your lay down you will miss 3 boards left or right at the pins...

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.
