Re: Flare position on ball and release technique overall

Hi Helios, I'll try and respond to your queries. 1) Where the oil rings are tells you what type of roll you have on the ball. If the first ring has moved away from your fingers a bit, you may have increased your tilt a bit, and likely your PAP has changed as well. I know a lot of bowlers where the f...

Re: What is BowlingChat worth to you?

Hi John, my latest BTM article was on the bowler/ coach relationship, and I'm currently writing one called 'What a teacher can teach a coach'. Re Bowling Chat, I've learnt so much on here from 2010 onwards, plus getting a lot of outside support from Jim M and also helping him at times too. I think a...

Re: What is BowlingChat worth to you?

I am happy to do video analysis in the coaching section when I have the time and the required angles in real time are submitted, but as far as I have seen, there have only been a few videos posted in the certified coaching forum so far this year.

Re: where to move?

For a right-hander, these moves are essentially creating a parallel launch angle about 1 board apart, but it's a bit more complex than that. Moving left 1 board with your feet may only create 1/2 board laydown difference depending on your approach, and over the same target, whereas same feet and tar...

Re: Dual Angle Layout Tool

Hi John, I've been studying bowling for about 12 years now, and yes I only got my USBC Silver level in 2016 so I could coach Australian teams as it is a TBA requirement. I didn't learn anything new in the process of doing the Bronze and Silver courses, but I guess they give you some credibility. I w...

Hi Glenn, that looks interesting but I still prefer to do them manually so I can customise the layouts and keep some 'art' in there.

Re: Optimal Axis Rotation

I had a play around with your calculator. Thanks for the link. I set the RPM at 400 and changed the ball speed. Not sure if this is speed off the hand, end of the lane or an average, but basically the rotation increases as ball speed increases. 15mph = 47.3 degrees 16mph = 50.5 degrees 17mph = 53.2 ...

There's a lot of misinformation and click bait YouTube videos out there from bowlers trying to make money from Google AdSense.

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

I'll try and address some of your questions using my logic, based on some simple math. 1. If you do not know where to start from. Say you know the exit point is on 9 (40 ft pattern) Is there some math to calculate what board you should set the ball down at and what board at the arrows you should tar...

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

As for the styles John mentioned, here is some more info from my notes: Type ‘O’ = Open Ball in front of the body, walk aroun...

Re: Two hander fighting extremely high track

Many 2-handers/ thumbless bowlers end up with negative tilt as they over-rotate their hand due to releasing the ball too late. And not over rotating by coming around the ball to bowl a spinner, but over rotating if you were looking at the ball from the lane level, which reduces the tilt to zero or n...

Re: Two hander fighting extremely high track

He needs to try and stay behind the ball longer and get it off his hand much earlier. Do you know what his tilt is?

Re: Same ball different layout for league

Have you got the Hustle Ink at OOB? Like Tony said, surface changes for a 1-2 ball combo can be just as significant as a layout change. I have a Hustle Ink at 80 x 5.5" x 25 OOB and love it for my shot when the lanes get dry and I have to move left. From 65 x 4 x 40 a layout change to 65 x 5 x 30 wo...

Re: That $%^&* 10 pin

My current ball I'm throwing is a Storm Astro-Physics. I like the ball and I love the reaction. It gives me plenty of slide in the beginning, turns the corner good and hits like a mac truck. The problem is I am not carrying. I left double digit ''ringing ten'' pins. I throw around 16-16.5 mph, no t...

Best to be matched #3??
Depends, on sports patterns being rev dominant is often more useful as most pros are, on THS matched or speed dominant can help. Shorter patterns less hand helps, with more oil and flatter patterns, rev dominance may create some area.

This is a pic from the 2019 Silver manual. I must have missed something in my education about the importance of the CG placement!
