  1. When I was younger this took me a while to understand. This combined with keeping your fingers dead and wrist semi firm is not easy, but when you get it, you get it, it will just click. Shots get more consistent and revs go up a lot. Takes practice, but he’s spot on with the method.

  2. I did this about 5 years ago. There were many tears involved.. To say it has made me a better more consistent bowler would be an understatement. This has been EVERYTHING for me.. Not to mention the blood blisters I never get anymore.

  3. A god way to think about is to imagine you are gripping a screwdriver versus gripping a hammer. You can tell if you are doing it right if your tricep is engaged and not the bicep

  4. Mu buddy and I bowl two different nights a week in two different alleys. On one league he drops the ball and on the other one he hangs the ball. Any idea what could be causing this?

    1. maybe one place is heavier (oily) lanes and he’s not toweling off ball enough with rag and possibly getting some oil on hands? Or maybe he likes the french fries better at one bowling alley 😉 aka greasy fingers

    2. @300game lol well definitely not the French fries. He’s been bowling for about 30yrs. However, he doesnt care enough to clean his ball after every shot. Hes a wheelchair bowler so I assume that he thinks he will take longer and ppl might get upset.

    3. @azulcrema1O I second oil on fingers, it has sabotaged me before by picking up an oily ball. Other thing to be mindful of, I like some have thumb swelling depending on climate, so in a colder bowling center my thumb hole is looser (I will use a storm rosin bag) and in warmer centers it is tighter (Thumb swells; I will use a dab of chalk on my thumb).

  5. Is this method preferred to just using a tiered tapping method with a ton of tape near the thumb tip (thereby keeping your thumb straight and preventing knuckling)?

  6. The natural anatomy of the hand with regards to bowling ball fit is a forward pitch in the thumb and a reverse pitch in the fingers but I’m constantly being told that a reverse pitch in the thumb will help the thumb clear faster but here you say forward. Unless someone clarify I’m even more confused that ever.
