Hey guys. I have been having release issues for a while. My rev rate is no where near what it should/could be. Here is whats been happening.
I have a Storm Rapid Fire. It is currently the only ball I am using due to it being the only ball I have drilled to my span.
Lately I have been practicing my back swing and I am noticing something. During my backswing with my wrist slightly cocked my thumb slips out a bit. Its only the front part of my thumb. It comes out about a centemeter or two. But I dont think it should be sliding out at all.
Secondly. My ball doesnt have a thumb slug. Inside it gets moist/sticky sometimes.
My thumb will only come out of the ball clean if it comes straight out of the thumb hole. It cant come out if it is tilted any other way. And because my thumb always slips out during the backswing,it is enough to make my thumb crooked when coming out and in turn rub the top half of my thumb and make my release not very pleasing.
I recently had my ball redrilled and my Pro Shop
guy suggested a wider span. I was going to ask him for something wider any ways so I was happy I was on the right track.
I just cant seem to fix this problem. So do you think my thumb is to small? I need some pitch? I need a thumb slug? Maybe my wrist isnt strong enough? even though I doubt thats the reason.
I plan to get a new ball soon. I recently joined a sport league and I have no ball for heavy oil. I am 95% going to purchase the Storm Invasion.
I dont want to do a exact copy of my rapid fire If I am going to have these problems.
Any input would be great. Thanks
