  1. Great video Coach Jasnau, I definitely agree with your analysis and will keep these tips in mind when i am out on the lanes.

  2. Great lessons for reviewing our spare shooting strategy.
    When I switched to 2 handed style, the so wished extra-hook became an enemy for single pin spare shooting, more the 10 pin at all. The 7 pin is easier for me with a little hook before hitting it. Conversely, the 10 pin and with my hand position (tilt and rotation), decreases the average at less than 50% because even the polyester spare ball hooks a bit!
    While I was practising and correcting my aim, I discovered a “trick” for this hideous pin: I threw an asymmetric ball (Physix or Crux Prime) from the 35-20 or 35-15 (35 dot, 20,15 arrow) and when the ball went to the exit point (in this case break-point too at 5 or 6) it changed direction in a angle-shaped movement directly to the 10 pin. Since then, this shot is more accurate for me than the straight one cause of the hook and works well in my case.

    I still need to improve my hand position so as to throw straight with polyester for reducing the hook, but meanwhile this “trick” has helped me to not lose bonus for spares and increase my scores.

  3. Awesomeness! BTW, what board do I stand on for the 10 pin? I get the target part but where should my feet be? Thanks. Love all your videos!

    1. Most right handers will be sliding at the foul line about the 30-35 board to cross around the 4th arrow to the 10-pin. Good luck and thanks for watching!
