Light ball, sticky finger hole, weak dropped ceilings = Fun!

Once someone told me to try some "rosin" of some type, the ball stuck to me and went straight up and over my head, and for that second the most helpless feeling ever. crying

Try a very tiny bit of 'Goose Lube' on the wide sides of your thumb.

Yesterday my result was not so impressive. I started very well and did 175, 180. Then I lost the pocket. I started adjusting but still could not get consistency. I think its a matter of practice, practice and practice. Down to basics. You miss right, move right, move board right. You miss left, move leftl move board to the left.

Good progress!

Couple of notes:

1. Move your feet left when you miss left - keep your target the same! The principle is one of pivoting on your target at the arrows. . .

2. If you move more than 3 boards, then start moving your target in parallel - i.e. 3 board move with your feet, start moving your target by a board.

3. These are GENERAL guidelines - as always, experiment systematically and make them your own! smile But in general, these work pretty well for me.

Yesterday my last three games were at 176, 208 and 193. I am now adopting this method. I also bought a plastic ball for my sparing ball.

Now I realized the term is not 'hurling' but 'lofting'. There are some articles written about it. My loft is not severe, the ball lands just on the arrows and the height is around 12 inches. There is definitely an increase in speed and rotation in my delivery.
