1)A side view would help.
http://www.bowlingcommunity.com/b/ubbthreads.php/topics/136316/Help_us_help_you.html#Post136316
2)Your pushaway should drop over your left knee.Then you walk around the ball.
3)Cant tell about your knee bend from the back,it looks like you bend your knees but I cant tell.
4)You pop up at the foul line a little.

You have good tilt through out the swing. Nice release and follow through. Get a side view video so we can see your timing and knee bend.

ok here we are:





these are the best angles I can get.

Regarding the timing. I am stopping my feet a bit on purpose after the second step, so that the ball reaches down.

Instead of stopping on your 2nd step,why don't you start your pushaway on your 2nd step.


You are slowing down at the release point waiting on the ball.A better timing pushaway should get the ball sooner so you can accelerate through the ball.

Your balance arm (the arm without the ball) does very little. I would like to see more use of this arm. Watch Jason Couch and Chris Barnes videos and see what they are doing with the balance arm. You'll get more leverage and a better swing if you use this arm more effectively.

thnx guys !

Nice advice :
"Instead of stopping on your 2nd step,why don't you start your pushaway on your 2nd step."

I will experiment on that, and post the results.

By your balance arm doing basically nothing in the approach, it tells me that you are controlling the ball swing with your ball arm. Your shoulders stay perfectly square to your target through your approach.

Watch the video above of Barnes. He clearly uses his balance arm by moving it forward as the ball reaches the top of the swing, and his ball shoulder opens. Then, he pulls the balance arm back while the ball comes forward to square his shoulders. Watch his shoulders as compared to yours.

You gain additional leverage on the ball with the shoulders opening and you need your balance arm in front to do this.

that is true. On the video I am trying to keep my hand in a strong position and maintain a slow speed, and that maybe the cause.
