Hey guys. Here are some of my videos. I'd appreciate any comments on what needs improving etc.
My avg is around 180-185, but it's not a typical US house shot (I posted the oil pattern in another thread). My rev rate is 300. My strike ball speed is 14-16 mph, my spare ball speed is 19-23mph (measured at the pins).
My spare ball speed is a lot higher than my strike ball speed. As you can see in the videos, I bend my elbow in the followthrough on my strike balls, but keep the elbow really straight on spare balls. I know I need to work on keeping it straight on my strike ball as well.

(for frame-by-frame analysis...)
Right now I'm working on two things:
- pushing more forward into the slide (when I don't think about it, I push off very quickly and in a way that makes my trail leg go too far to the left and causes me to rotate my slide leg to the right)
- focusing on the target (usually I focus on it really well during the stance, but then it gets blurred sometime during the approach. After the shot, I have no clue where the ball actually went.)
