Do you have a video of when you aren't throwing it over your thumb hole? Your release must have changed recently.

You're at a 45-50* angle of release, and rather than your fingers coming up the side of the ball, they are pushing forward through the ball. This puts your thumb hole directly in the first couple of track rings.

Your ball has more of a spin then rotation. Has it always been this way? You seem to muscle through the release that results in the spin.

If your fingers are moved a little behind and under the ball, the thumb in track will go away.

Try it and report.

No, it actually started when I started reading stuff on here and trying to change my release. Now, i cant figure out how to stop it. I mean it works im still AVG 220+ in 2 leagues (both THS) but im not impressed with the thumping sound and i have never had this problem. The track used to be maybe within a 1/2 inch or so, now it even crosses over to the other side of the thumb some times. I will give it a try. Thanks for the advice

I will have to see if i have an old video.

If you stop vid 1 at 09 secs, vid 2 at 4 secs, and vid 3 at 03 secs, they show your hand at the same point of the release. Vid 3 shows your hand more behind and fingers under the ball. While in both 1 and 2, you have moved your hand more to the outside of the ball, in fact, vid 2 shows you cupping a little.

Your hand moves forward through the ball on 1 and 2, while it pulls upward on 3. These slight changes have moved your track rings.

It's hard to see, but you have changed the tilt on the ball.

There are several things that can do this.1. Bad weighted ball.2.Over rotating wrist at release.3.Ball is too dull for condition.
Since we can rule out the first and the second may be the more complicated, try #3 first.
