Axis Rotation

Post by jdrsuper » September 3rd, 2019, 6:33 am

People,

I find that with my high Axis Rotation 70 degrees and coupled with my slow speed 13 off my hand, when I play on sport shots that don't have much length or really low volumes of oil I generate too much hook. I try to come up the back of the ball but my muscle memory from all years I have bowled just makes me release it with a lot of axis rotation. My question is there any devices out there that would help me stop turning the ball so much. If no devices exit what other things can I try to reduce the rotation. At 79 years young and throwing 12lb equipment, I'm hoping someone can give some advice that can decrease the rotation which I feel will reduce my hook. Thanks in advance for your help.

No matter what you are trying to do remember simplicity gives better results than over complicating things.

Thanks for sharing this information Stacy.
This tool looks quite interesting.
It's no doubt much cheaper than any of the wrist positioners.

Quite a few years ago, I read that Steve Neff said he sometimes used a wrist device when teaching himself release changes. Your suggestion sounds like a very economical method and takes up less space in the utility bag.

JD, kudos to you for determination and longevity in the sport.
Good luck to you.

Best of luck to all riding out this hurricane season.

Take care ...
