How to Put Your Hand Into a Bowling Ball

It doesn’t matter which style of bowler you are, how you put your hand in the ball has an effect on ball motion down the lane. It is important to note that when you pick up the bowling ball off of the ball return, you need to use both hands. Using both hands eliminates excessive squeezing or grip pressure. Eliminating grip pressure will allow your fingers to come out of the ball faster, helping to create more revs.

Sliding may have never been the thing i thought it was or it’s just a thing of the past. But anyway- it would sure be cool if there was a video filter showing the kinetic forces used to bowl a frame.
