Hi guys!

It's me again laugh I hope you guys are not so obsessed at me haha. I have these 2 pictures from Marshall Kent releasing the hook ball. It can help us understand a lot about the release.

When I began practising hook few years ago, I thought we should rotate the wrist around the ball to make create rev and make it hook. Now, to my opinion, it's totally a misconception.

I think when make the hook release we should not think about rotate the wrist or hand or arm...etc. The rotation should be from the fingers (ring finger lead) when the thumb gets out of the hole. At that moment, the ball falls off onto the fingers and has a tendency to fall to the left side of the hand (right hand bowler). Then we don't need to rotate wrist or hands but just project the ball straight to the target with a thought of letting the hand behind the ball as it is from the top of the swing. The ring finger will automatically rotate as the ball is off the thumb.

I had the "chicken wing" mistake for a very long time. And when I apply this concept to myself. it's totally a Game Changer to me. No wrist, no hands turn, just keep the hand behind the ball, ring finger leads and magic happens by itself.

So obviously, we should not think of any hand or wrist rotation! Do you think like me? Please correct me if i am wrong.
