I don't know much about 2 hands delivery but I like your synchronization
Power is nothing without control

Looks good mate... Only thing I see from a lot of two handers is there left leg almost being dead straight at release...I find I am more stable at release with a bent knee, especially if you plant.. you can also if u like put more revs and speed on ball through improving balance...

Watch Belmo, whilst he does have a smallish slide, his knee is bent a litte more, also saves the back from extra contorting to get down low... This could be a big thing in years to come throwing two handed.. I have been doing it for 15 months, love it, for so many reasons..
But my only concern with this style is how your body holds up, now and long term... I guess I view the two handed bowling as a risk assesmment kinda thing... Reduced my speed for a two hander, yet have better balance, and most importantly less strain on body, just find it is easier to repeat shots,and the biggest thing, is my release since going two handed, I feel so much more consistant, my average thankfully has reflected this, and I'm still new to this technique....

One last thing, just an idea, your approach speed, could you slow down a bit, may help balance, and improve accuracy, which will improve on your already respectable and improving average..

Then again you only 17yr and I'm 40, in good nick though lol... Still, hopefuly you can get some other two handers out there contributing to your post....

Heading in the right direction Mark..

It's looking really good. I would say try not to use your back so much, looks like you're torquing your back through to get more on the ball. I know I do the same and I'm working on trying to use my arms to roll the ball more. While I'd say it doesn't look like you're putting A LOT of pressure on your back, that would be just something to think about.

Being a two hander myself I have to say from my side that it seems to be less pressure on the body overall. Since I started throwing two handed pain in my groin, knee, forearm and bicep all went away. Apparently I throw two handed way better than one handed haha.

If you get the chance during practice, other angles and slow motion shots would help in the future. Good luck, keep it up.

I've been playing with the idea of using the 2-handed delivery. My biggest problems that are obvious to me are lower speed and not being able to hit my mark. I can't feed the ball right very well most of the time.
