I hear ya. There's so much info on this bowling site it could take years to go through it all. There's 10 years of topics to read and they all have something worth writing down.

I've straightened out my 10 pin game and become more accurate overall with all the credit going to this site and the people on it.

I recommend it to everyone i meet, if you can't find the answer here then it doesn't exist.

This is where I can help. Most people don't have the wrist strength to get into this position in the first place, of the ones that do, most don't have the strength to hold the wrist in this position after the thumb exits the all and the wrist uncocks automatically; however, some do possess the wrist strength to hold the wrist in a cocked position through the release, they either have to learn to extend their fingers through the bottom of the ball, this unwraps the wrist after the thumb exits, or they have to trigger it in some way that make sense to them.

Coach : You are a Goldmine !
I am one of those who was stupid enough not to extend the fingers. I was missing the right feeling.

Ok, I have a (maybe not so) simple question. What should my release "feel" like? I really have three releases I can employ.

1. I rake up the back of the ball, somewhat similar to WRW.

2. "Let the birdie fly" like PDW.

3. Where it feels like my thumb has become an axis and I'm turning the ball around it.

When I want a higher rev rate, like what is mentioned in the Slowinski article, is it #3 that I should employ?

If you stop the videos at the point of release, you will see that the ball is almost a foot above the floor, your hand position looks good, but the ball is a bit high which means it will bounce when it hits the lane.

Try to get lower with your knees if you can, and reach lower through the bottom of the release to help get the ball as low to the floor as you can. Raising up is a form of lofting which comes in handy when the heads are burnt and you need to project the ball down the lane farther, or just shorten it a bit.

Keep up the good work.
