CAN'T MOVE. WHAT TO DO

I'm new so not able to control too many things in my approach and delivery. Getting better, no doubt, with practice, specially after my fit is figured out. But Still having trouble with the lane transition. I'm basically a Stroker and when the lanes break down and I have to move inside, my troubles ...

Re: linear Fingerpitch

Something to remember about the different fitting systems is, That while they may have evolved from the same origins. You can't necessarily mix and match elements together from the different systems and have the finished product (fit) be perfect, At least not at first and not without a lot of trial...

Re: linear Fingerpitch

I'm sorry to hear that you weren't treated well when you had questions and struggled with your fit. We all need to be more patient and open minded, and it's easy to create misunderstanding on a forum. I just wanted you to keep in mind that years from now somebody might read your post and form their...

Re: linear Fingerpitch

I'm happy you've dialed in your grip and are satisfied with the results. However, reverse in the thumb doesn't prove that you will drop the ball "more often than not". It will tend to help you exit more quickly and cleanly. That doesn't mean drop. For well over a year, I've used an ADT gr...

Re: linear Fingerpitch

In my opinion there is more than one way to skin a cat. it has been said many times before, a good PSO will be well versed in many different fitting methods. Many contradicting the teachings of the other. I have found the wiki to be a good base fit of the relaxed finger tip grip. It had been taught...

Re: linear Fingerpitch

If I remember correctly ... Doesn't Chris Barnes use different pitches and spans in balls when he is trying to "circle" the lane compared to playing the "straighter"? I believe he utilizes a different fitting in his spare balls too. Yes Sir. Chris has 1/16 reverse in spare ball ...

Re: linear Fingerpitch

The people I deal with for fitting and drilling bowling balls, are generally not as physically fit as professional athletes. PBA and WPBA bowlers are professional athletes so to compare the average person to a professional athlete is unfare in my opinion. You may as well compare someone running to ...

Hello everyone. Once I was frequenting this forum in search of my ball fitting needs. I tried and tried and tried but could not get the correct answer.

I wish you great success in your bowling and believe it or not I feel happy you finally found a pain free fit. Thanks. I am not looking for PBA title. All I wanted was to be able to play without pain in hand and a decent 170 180ish score. I just wanted to enjoy bowling. When you play pain free, you...

Re: Tiered oval thumb

As far as the link above (wiki) is concerned it is about a different thing. The wiki article is about bevelling the top edge of the hole with drill bit to make the thumb sit better from the webbing and thumb joint. The TOPS 3 oval system is to make the thumb fit better at the bottom of the hole. Yo...

What are you averaging right now? Are you consistent? Can you hit the same mark area twice within a few boards at 40 feet?

Re: Done with specs. Need advice on Arsenal

I would suggest Benchmark on a strong ball as your strongest piece. You mentioned med to light conditions. A ball stronger than benchmark would be for tournament use. This gives you more options for broken in conditions. Benchmark Long and Strong Control Spare You might save $5 a ball with only 1 g...
