Like I said, I am trying to put past prejudices aside and move forward.44boyd wrote:Serious question, every single piece of advice that is given, you have an answer for why you don’t/can’t do it. Mental game is huge part of it, if your brain doesn’t think it will work then it never will. Just seeing what your thought process is. You shoot down speed; hand position, changing lines etc..what else is left?
I have seriously experimented for several years.
I have found what does and does not work as far as technique.
But I am still open to alterations in technique that will help, but most importantly, not hurt me, or my game.
I tried sticking that balance arm out there for a few months and it hurt my game in the long run.
Stopping that allowed my accuracy and consistency to return.
I have decided I don't want to continue to use weak balls that hit the pocket and do not carry.
The ball MegaMav is sending me looks really good and I will work with it to see if it can up my average.
So I am not trying to shoot down everything everyone says because I am stubborn and don't want to change, I have actually tried many things and found that certain things just do not work for me.
I am just trying to honestly answer questions with my experience.
MegaMav wanted me to follow through more on the ball.
I tried this in one session and after half a game the tendon in my arm started to hurt.
I backed off and the pain subsided.
I think it hurt because following through forced me to hold the ball longer and that extra grip force needed to hold the ball further forward into the release, put too much strain on the tendon.
That is why I have a short release, to just slide the ball into the lane early before the torque force of the forward ball weight forces me to put more squeeze pressure on it.
Again, like TomaHawk said, I am curling the ball into the lane.
