As most of you had seen from my last video my form is a mess, my slide and balance plus my release was way out side.

have been working hard on my balance and power step and it is coming along nicely. But for the life of me I could not keep from looping my arm.

I was at work and found a training device! A huge Tyrap. I place it at the top of my right leg with the long part sticking out so during my back swing I hit it with my arm as well as the down swing.

Today at practice I hit my mark 98% of the time went clean 3 games and shot a 630 series. Only one Brooklyn strike the rest were pocket and 7 and 10 pins were no match for me lol

Sounds intresting. Rocket, you think you can take a pic. of it and post on here so I can see exactly how you are doing it. I would like to try this idea if you don't mind.

That was the problem, I used side cuts to cut it, they do make them that you can unlock but this wasnt that type.

So sorry cant take a picture of it Justin, but my next idea is to buy some velcro and attach a a thin plastic arm to it that way it is removable and dont look as weird either lol.

I Imagine the coaches on here could let us know if this is a good training aid or not and where the best placement would be.

I myself was wondering if you could attach something to the belt loop but with the hips clearing how long would it need to be?

I am not good enough myself to know if its a good tool or not but seemed to help my swing plane

Now my gears are really turning, what if I made one for the bottom of my left leg (Im right handed) that would help train me to be close to it and notify me when to start my release?

Rocket, For the part on your right leg, how far is it sticking out?

Rocket, don't let any detachable part fall on the foul line while you bowl.

Interesting thought, though. That is something that I can see would help.
