As Belmo said some time ago, look how the two handers go against traditional bowlers and their success rate... If there are up to 4 two handers on PBA, imagine (in theory) the rate of success if there were say 10 for the sake of this post... HMMM, makes u think... I have seen about 6 two handers now over last two years at my centre...Numbers are slowly increasing, I don't know about your centres?


The success rate is very high for two-handers in the PBA, isn't it? I've seen some local people "play" with two-handing, but only maybe one or two who do it regularly. There were a pair of "Asian" girls using thumbless techniques; they were pretty good. At the alley were I see more Asian people, I see thumbless techniques used more. (Maybe that's why I'm drawn to it, being half Asian? heh)

I'm starting to feel the way Belmo does. He doesn't want to be thought of as just "The Two-handed Bowler." He just wants to be recognised as a bowler, preferably as a GOOD bowler.

I thought something similar when a kid said to not two-hand next time. (I'm just bowling...what're talking about?) I didn't know the context of his comment, but later I was told that he thought I was cheating. Huh?! It seems that people who don't understand the technique have the most complaints about it. The only thing the second hand does is support the ball until just before the release. Yeah...that's cheating. O.o If anything, for the less skilled two-handers (me), always using two hands is the /opposite/ of cheating. heh
