Re: Oval Thumb Angle

Thanks but the Wiki only covers drilling oval thumbs, not the oval angle itself and how that affects lateral pitches.

Oval Thumb Angle

In the Mo fitting system, there is no mention of the angle of the oval thumb, how it is calculated and its relationship to lateral pitches.

Anyone have any info on this?

Thanks.

Re: Pro layouts

The pros will most often use urethane rather than short pin to pap layouts on reactive balls.

Re: Pro layouts

Does anyone know what are the most popular layouts the pros use. When you watch the ball motion in slow motion The balls look like they get into roll really late. They look like the roll starts about a 15 inches from the head pin. Generally high level bowlers don't want the ball to get into the rol...

Re: Storm Crux Ball Replacement

It looks like that cover hasn't been used again since 2015, and the core since the Omega Crux, which was also a pearl. It is discontinued but you may have more luck finding one of them around than the original Crux pearl. The closest current ball is probably the 900 Global Altered Reality. The Storm...

Re: Quick question about thumb callouses

Lately my left thumb where you bend has a callus at the base of the thumb. Its started to hurt the last time i had bowled. I did have the pro shop flatten the edge of the thumb hole.

Re: Coaching 2 handers

Re: Coaching 2 handers

Kyle Troup are Chris Via are 'P' types. As for step lengths, due to the shorter back swing 2-handers usually have, the steps can't get too long. Similar timing principle to 1-handers where you want them walking passed the ball and creating some lag so the ball can swing freely and not be pulled down...

Re: Coaching 2 handers

Hi, there are lots of variables with 2-handers and they are all a bit different. Below are some of my coaching notes for 2-handers: There are generally two types of swings, Type 'P' and Type 'O'.

Re: Polished bus sanded ball

It will depend on who is throwing the ball (ball roll stats), the oil pattern and how many games have been bowled on the pattern. There is no simple one rule fits all approach.

Re: layout advise for high tilt on THS

"The higher tilt helps counteract the rev dominance you have."

I see the release stats as speed dominant.
