I'm not talking about "grinding" the bag, but a quick squeeze or two at the table shouldn't leave a bunch on the hand that should fall off. Tapping the bag on the ball doesn't just leave it on the ball but also sends clouds of dust outward, I've never seen any type of dust/powder that doesn't in a situation like that and working in construction I am around all types of it. But like I said unless the grip sack is constantly being thrown on the floor shouldn't be causing an issue. I know you, Rick, are trying to not let it interfere with the approach conditions when so many others don't.

As for the original post, I'd be more worried about someone trying to gain an advantage by leaving the rosin on the ball than it effecting the approaches, unless they lay the ball down behind the line where others slide.

As for the Ultra-Slide, if used correctly shouldn't be an issue. Several years ago I bowled in a league that had a bowler that didn't use it correctly. He left it the bag on the floor under his chair, luckily it was usually on the carpet behind the other team. He literally stomped on it, especially on his heel since he slid leaning backwards and we all know the heel is suppose to stop you and he was more on his heel than sole of the shoe. My brother who was on my team had his foot slide forward out from under him three times and the league president finally after several complaints and trying to say it was legal came down and made the bowler stop.

Not that it has anything to do with anything, but, union tin-knocker here since fall '99 smile

Honestly if one player said a thing about my pre-shot routine I'd probably change it, it's just never happened. I don't do "fun leagues" these days, either... it's pretty competitive.

Watched the WSOB Cheetah Championship today, and couldn't help but be reminded of this thread. Holy duststorms, Batman!

Meanwhile I've gotten entirely out of the habit of touching the grip sack to my finger or thumb holes at all. Figured I may as well get used to it all the time, so if I bowled in a tournament or what have you where there was some rule enforced, it would never affect me.

I no longer use rosin, but like having something to do with my hand between shots, so we got some flannel at a fabric store and a bag of kidney beans and my wife put it all together for me. I have had this contraption for years and really like it.

I was bowling Monday and saw a container of baby powder on a table near the ball return on the adjacent lanes. It had loose powder all over it. It was excessive. Reminded me of reading this thread.

I also use baby powder. I apply very little and in an area behind the pit and not on the ball. It has become a pre shot routine about every 2-3 frames just to apply a little especially around my thumb. My thumb by preference is tight and I would not get the desired release at times. A little powder is more a preventive solution to the thumb hanging in the ball too long. Just curious anyone else have a routine like this?

Personally, I am not fond of using either rosin or powder. I prefer to keep the thumbhole clean with alcohol pads, and adjust for fit with smooth black tape. However, I learned the hard way to have EZ-Slide available at all times for those hot, humid centers when stickiness is unavoidable, especially during the summer months.
