Here are a few clips of my newest videos. I am working on a few things and these are actually going out to Richard Shockley in order to obtain his input and critique on my game.

As a side note the release view shows three different shots each with a different axis of rotation. First is my standard release, second is lowering, last shot is upping it.

What do you guys think? Fire Away!

That's quite a slide.
Looks like you're a stroker. Do you give it some finger action, or just let the ball fall off? Is your thumb round? I abandoned that shot due to blisters on my thumb.

I "set" my fingers in the ball similar to the action of "setting a hook" while fishing. I then allow the ball to tumble off the pinkie side of my hand.

If I was to classify myself I would put myself in the tweener/stroker range simply because my follow-through does not follow the typical stroker mold. It chases the ball more towards my left ear, as opposed to straight at the target as the stroker would do.

Right now I am at about 350 revs and my speed of my hand is about 18.5 mph.

My thumb hole is ovalled at a 45 degree.

You are looking pretty good form wise. You might want to invest some time in this lesson:

Richard Shockley used to be the head guy at the Kegel training center when it first opened, he is an excellent coach, you will be in good hands. What is he doing these days?

Thanks for the input CoachJim, and just because I am a coach as well and still learning the tricks of the trade I have a question for you. It is not a question of your ability, more of a question to improve my own coaching ability.

What is it that made you decide that lesson applied well to my game? Besides a higher backswing, what else can I look to see as an improvement by adding this piece to my game?

Thanks again, and I truly value your input, just a bowler thirsty for as much knowledge as I can possible handle!

What brought it to my attention wasn't your back swing, it was your spine tilt, if you look at your upper body position you will notice your spine doesn't have much tilt, if you learn to tilt as described in ron's tip you will have the same swing, but a higher back swing because your upper body will be tilted more. I think if you reach to your target more with your balance arm at the same time, it will all fall into place.

I don't know if you read the article in BTM last month about release timing, but it explains what to look for and was a great article. If you didn't read it, let me know and I will scan and send it to you.

Thanks for the reply and explanation CoachJim, I appreciate it.

I don't remember seeing the article and if you wouldn't mind scanning it I would love to read it.

Again, thank you and hope all is well.

Just thought I would mention that any of you out there that would like to add input are more than willing to throw it out there.

I wanted to bring that up because one of my video posts before I had someone that second guessed whether or not they should add anything because they felt it wasn't their place to bring it up.

I really enjoy hearing people's feedback as well as simply talking or listening bowling so anything at all you have to add will be more than appreciated!

You still look good to me. However, you might get some ideas
from Slowinski's article THE SWING SLOT REVISITED .
It's hard to find on his site. Use search on the top of left side list. Type in the name. It is the 4th article.
This will give you some ideas to try out? Danny Wiseman and Norm Duke both lean forward quite a bit, especially on step before the slide.

Do you push the ball out right of your target in your initial push-away causing a slight wrapping of the ball behind your back?
