weird grip style i tried.

Post by mrbean » April 14th, 2018, 1:05 am

so i went bowling today and the day before i had cut my middle finger on a knife so i tried something weird: i used my ring finger and my pinky finger and i shot only 3 pins below my average (150) the first game. the span was a little long for my pinky, but i could do my normal swing, the release took awhile to get used to. can't say i'd recommend it unless you have to, but it worked. anybody else tried this because of an injury or for fun.

I tried it many years ago because of injury to middle finger. Takes away revs and increase side rotation. I do recommend the grip to clients that have problems with corner pins and don't use plastic.
