I have seen many videos that say ďmodernĒ release, let the ball roll off your fingers,
lift with the fingers up the back of the ball.
When I do that the ball goes straight. I have tried this with thumb from 12:00 to 3:00.

I can do a ďsuitcaseĒ release but the ball arrives flat.

But if I go from a thumb @ 10:00 to 3:00 fingers coming from 5:00 and then with a little twist over the top of the ball I can get it to hook.

So Iím confused what is the proper way to release the ball? help

JOE

Joe, Here's an article written by Joe Slowinski. In it he believes that the position of the fingers during the entire swing are key to getting adequate revolutions on a bowling ball just like the elite players do. He also mentions that his backup drill can help one learn the technique and get it ingrained in their head to accomplish it. Here's the link to the download of the article that appeared in Bowling This Month magazine: http://bowlingknowledge.info/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=204

Hope this helps...
