Vertical axis coordinate

Post by duvallite » November 8th, 2019, 2:47 am

I'm trying to understand the effect of the height of the vertical axis coordinate of your PAP in relationship to your release. As an example, if you tend to spin the ball some, will your vertical coordinate be higher than someone who has a more up the back release?

Here's what Mo said about the Vertical coordinate in the thread "Significance of Vertical Pap Coordinates" if it helps:

The vertical coordinate has nothing to do with ball motion. It's an anomaly. The longer the thumb stays in the ball, the more the vertical coordinate is up. In full rollers, in which the thumb stays in the ball the longest, the vertical coordinate is usually 2+" up.

Regarding later thumb exit ...

I believe that getting your thumb out cleanly and quickly and before the fingers is a major component in imparting rpms on a bowling ball.
Thats the the rationale behind the fingertip grip and why no thumbers have high RPM rates.
It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so

There should be a rule of war saying you have to see someone up close and get to know 'em before it's ok to shoot 'em
