  1. Not sure what it showed apart from that different angles can be used on a target. I would really becinterested to see how body and leg angles change accordingly with each of those shots

    1. Keith the difference in the body and leg angles are very small. Sometimes to help create a more open angle you can bring your right foot back (for right handed bowler) back a few inches in the set up position. Angles on the lane are very small, from zero degrees of launch angle (projection) up to only 3 degrees of angle for most bowlers, so no need to have a big open angle with body to create a small angle. Thanks for the question!

  2. A better explanation in my opinion could have been that if you want to get a straight line add 7 boards to your target this is the normal straight shot for example board 10 target slide board 17 this will be zero angle slide 20 target 10 you created a 3 board angle assuming same breakpoint of course.

  3. I wish videos like this would discus starting point as well, such as left foot on 20, slide at 30, etc. I ask because Im still unsure if they are talking about drifting left or are they starting and finishing on the same board they begin on.

    1. Scott I would recommend walking fairly straight, so the starting position should be close to the intended finishing position. Thanks for watching and the question. I hope my answer helped clarify it for you.

  4. This may sound like a ridiculous question, but nobody is ever specific about this: Does your approach toward the line always start and end on the same board, and you twist the orientation of your body to achieve more angle? Or do you walk across boards in your approach when you need more angle, therefore you don’t have to contort?

    1. I walk the launch angle because I think it’s easier to walk a straight line and roll the rock straight but I believe I’m in the minority. I should learn to do both because the ball return can be an issue on the right lane. Fortunately I almost never have to be that far inside. In my opinion trying to hit different targets from the same slide point introduces a new variable and I don’t like variables.

  5. Any tips on how to really the ball lower by my ankle I tend to let the ball go high with loft getting better but any tips would help

    1. Thanks for the question Allen. Sometimes focusing on starting to get a little bit lower with your core through a bit more knee flex as you go into your step before your slide can help you to be and stay a bit lower through your finish and release. Hope this helps!

  6. What would be the dot to stand on and arrow to aim at for the very first ball thrown in practice? Is there one dot and arrow best to get your initial arrow and break figured out?

    1. Thanks for watching and for the question. If bowling on a typical house shot condition, not a Sport shot lane condition, usually around the second arrow can be a good starting point. On most house shots, there’s more oil inside of 2nd arrow and less oil outside of 2nd arrow. It’s good to have the oil to the left of target and drier boards to the right for right handed bowlers. Generally your left foot would start @20 board which is the bigger middle dot. From there you can make adjustments if needed. Thanks again and I hope this helps!

  7. I’ve been working on this in practice… I’m always looking at where I’m sliding compared to where I started…I drift 2-3 boards left and have started incorporating this into my thought process when targeting on the lane to get the proper angle

  8. So, if you’re talking about right-handed bowlers, why use right feet footprints (the blue and red ones) to illustrate the slide foot?
