Strong and smooth... I'm jealous. thumbsup

Your most solid shots with the best hand are when your knee bend is good. If I had to give you something to work on...when you stiff-leg a bit, balance suffers and the ball flies off of your hand a little, and reaction is not quite as strong. Other than that, very nice... wouldn't change a thing.

You sure get your right hip out of the way nicely. Any tips?

your timing looks pretty great to me. you may have a few issues here and there but it looks so smooth and effortless.
Wish mine came so easily.
Nicely done

Very smooth release. I have a feeling you're not letting the ball drop due to gravity after the pushaway. If you did, you'd have more power in the shot. Timing would have to be adjusted.

I agree with the others that your delivery is really good.

One thing I noticed was on the light hits, you know, like the 5 pin. It seemed that you drifted a little right, and your release tried to compensate.

This seemed to be an abnormal error, as it didn't happen often. Weird how the brain recognizes something off, and tries to correct it in the middle of the approach.

The one thing I would work on in your game is that your third step (right before the power step) is weak. Your third step should be your longest step (second step in a 4 step approach) as its getting your body prepared to coil and explode into the slide. Right now your third step is so short that it is actually compacting your body, eliminating a lot of the power that you could generate if it was longer.

If you want to attempt to change it, here is a drill I was taught by Mike Machuga:

1 - Do an approach and stop after the third step and see where you foot is at on the approach, you could use the video and approximate as well.

2 - Put your wallet (or similar) on the ground about double the length of your third step. So if you think you cover a foot in between your second and third steps, move the wallet another foot past where your third step is landing now.

3 - The object is to get over the wallet. The longer you can create that step, the better you will be at getting your body into a powerful position in the power step. As you get better at that distance you can try to push it even more, continue this as many times as you can until the step becomes erratic and then back it off.

Here is a video of Rhino Page, notice how long his second step (he is using 4 steps instead of 5) is. This gets his body into a very strong and powerful position as he comes into his power step. This allows him to coil and easily transfer as much power as possible from his body to the bowling ball.
