Re: Just for fun: No-thumb layout (fingers in the MB), pin about 8 inches out.

Images are from Blueprint software. Dots are there by the program’s default, CG accounts to very minimum ball motion and doesn’t really matter much on any ball.

Re: 2 Hands bowlers drilling layout

I may be wrong but isn’t the “lightning arc” the hypotenuse of a right angle triangle: horizontal coordinate and vertical coordinate being A and B sides of the triangle? If that is so then the square root of the sum of the squares of A and B will give you “lightning arc”. Someone more skilled than m...

No thumb layouts and finger hole depth

Wanted to share this video, apparently it’s Storm’s interpretation of Mo’s no thumb layout technique, of course Mo did it first… that said, I like how the video illustrates the effects of finger hole depth in RG, Diff amd INT Diff. Enjoy:

Re: Targeting

Congratulations on your progress. Don’t forget that a line of play needs two points. Hitting your target down lane is very important too. All lanes are 60’ from the foul line to the pin deck and 3’6” wide without including the gutters. They all have 39 boards and arrows are at around 15 feet from th...

Ok, I’ll give him a simple answer:

Get some basic coaching or your injuries will get worse.

Re: A ball recommendation

No it’s not, and his bad shoulder is going to get worse if he keeps trying to hit 13 from 30-35, I am not going to be responsible for that. If it wasn’t a house shot he would be 120. Are we just trying to sell bowling balls or are we trying to better our sport? BTW he has been bowling 19 years

Try a low flare layout 90-2-40 on an Asymmetrical ball.
Hello Eric! I’m back!

Yeah, I second that but would probably do a 55 VAL as I am biased to smoother reactions but your recommendations are always spot on. Glad you guys are still doing your thing.

Re: A ball recommendation

The dots are the 2 set by the bowl return and i stand at the dot that is Furthest away from the ball return and at the second set of dots. Not sure what dot number you call that. For a lefty, on the right lane (even number lanes) the closest dots to the ball return are the 5 or 10 board (depending ...

Re: A ball recommendation

Yes, I know and many of the athletes I coach including my daughter bowl left handed too. Left handers count boards from left to right, you mentioned on the last paragraph of your initial post you stand “around the last dot on my right”. What do you mean by this? Middle board is 20 next one right of ...

Re: A ball recommendation

So you’re standing on the last dot to your right (30 or 35 depending on the bowling center) and trying to bowl up 13 at the arrows? If this is what you’re doing it’s no wonder the shoulder hurts and your right knee and lower back may be up for injury soon. Asuming you want the ball to hit 10 at 44’ ...

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 ...
