I believe one of the reasons you rear up at the line and lose balance is because you are not using your legs as well as you could. You are bending quite a lot from the hips as opposed to allowing the knees to flex and getting a little more "sit" into the shot as opposed to "bend over".

It is obviously working quite well but if there is anything I was going to work on that would be my first thing, sitting on the shot so that you do not end up out in front of your slide leg, causing you to bounce up and out of the shot.

I think you're biggest problem may be that you are actually trying to do too much behind the line. Bowling a sport where less will more often than not yield more for you.

What I noticed is that the difference between your well balanced and timed up shots and the not so good ones were two things.

1) You are losing your hand position too early and as a result you may or may not be aware of it, but you are trying to tear the cover off of the ball to get it to hook for you.

2)It looks like you are charging the line some and need to slow down your foot walk. Most of the time this happens from some late timing, eagerness to rip the hell out of the ball, or thinking that you need to do more to get the reaction you want.

If you've ever bowled in a more traditional style of play before. I'd recommend instituting some smoothness and balance from that especially at the bottom of the swing into your style of play. I find that when I roll with your style it makes it much easier on the body.

Hope that helps,
