First of all.

Re: Adjusting

According to the lane tech guy, the lanes are oiled every night the same. On Wednesday one guy does it and on Thursday it is a different person. There are several programmed patterns in the machine which the lane tech won't let you know any of them. The only thing he says is that the lanes are oile...

Re: Adjusting

I didn't want to make a new thread for this. To get good adjusting practice, wouldn't it be a good idea to wait until a league is over with and then bowl 1 game on 2 lanes, then move down to the next pair and bowl a game and so on? I am not saying for you to do it. I am saying it in general for any...

Re: 0 degree tilt!

Things which comes to my mind when I look these videos. You are: Running => try keep first steps slower Throwing the ball => try keep your hand relaxed and just let ball just go Lofting ball quite far => try to let if drop of your hand Is these issue or not depends on which level you want to be.

Re: Increasing ball speed for 2-hander

Coaches must also be careful when looking at cause and effect, the release is usually the effect, yes he is going around the ball and yes doing a backup drill will help fix this but one must work one thing at a time and in my opinion there are other things that should be addressed first. Different ...

Re: Increasing ball speed for 2-hander

Just for the sake of conversation, there are certain techniques which are inherent to the bowler's mental approach to the game. There is really no way of knowing who is better, they bowl a certain way because it enable them to score. Scoring is everything right? Yes. "The last time I watched bowlin...

Re: Is your fit good enough?

Wrist pain usually isn't your grip, unless your grip has your hand really contorted so that you feel the pain when you support the ball or cock your wrist. If you can put your hand in the ball, get in a ready position, and cock your wrist up and to the inside without any sharp pain, then I would sa...

Re: Turbo finger switch grip

I have used these on ball demo. They work fine but it is little bit hard to understand why someone would like to have these on own balls? At least I don't care some much size of finger grips as long thumb fits fine.

Re: Increasing ball speed for 2-hander

So you think I am coming around the side of the ball too early creating too much side roll if I am understanding you correctly? I'm not sure how to stay behind it longer for it feels like I am staying behind it.... You can easily see that your hand is side of the ball (axis rotation at least 45*) f...

Re: How do I re-train myself to stop sliding through release

Because I need my slide to be long in order to continue through release, I typically use a Leading Edge heel with the rubber back and adjustable front strip. I got this heel as self-preservation - I slide long and needed a heel that allows that. Have you tried to use shoe brush to that heel? Maybe ...

Re: 0 degree tilt!

The Blueprint simulations are for a Columbia Outburst, a discontinued ball. To assume they will be true for other balls is a mistake. True. I don't assume anything. I just say that it is possible on this ball and most likely will be possible on some other ball too. Where is the Mass Bias if you onl...

Re: 0 degree tilt!

perhaps the sharpest shape with the quickest reaction to friction could be something like 110 x 3 1/4 x 40 maybe 35. I'd have to also see how the pin looks on a layout like this. I have seen over 90* drilling angles on this video and on this guide . There you can also see pin location. On both of t...
