Hoped you'd get better results than that.
At our house they've changed from Kegel Ice to Kegel Fire lane conditioner. The result is less carry down type conditions and balls tend to grab the lanes a bit more. I'm able to see transition better and earlier in a 3-game set. I tend to try to stay with the same ball as long as I can, but I generally have been successful with going with my polished lower differential reactive resin ball while making a 3-2 or 6-4 move (feet and target at the arrows). My ball is pretty close to where yours would be at the range markers near to board 8 I guess.

djp, I stuck with that other ball as i am very comfortable with it. And, yes I moved many times. I swear, its the back end that my balls react to more then others.

I watch others, and they don't have the severe back end I do. Most also are releasing with more side rotation then I do. I'm fully under the ball and feel it off my ring finger at release.

I've paid attention to commentary about some pros like Walter Ray and Norm Duke usually making use of forward roll where they don't typically have to move all that much like Tommy Jones and others. Cutting down on your angle of entry into the pins seems to me to be the key with what you're dealing...

DJP, I have to lessen my hand at release. When I had Knee operations, I rolled for couple leagues, only taking one step. Developed a strong hand and release.

Now, I don't control it well. And, this is my first year back without knee pain. So, I'm finally able to bend into a slide and get good arm extension. But, still don't have any speed. I get too much into the ball at too slow speed. I have to balance that better.

Ok Dennis, By golly I think you've got it.
I've changed a number of things: hand position, swing and more leverage. All were suggested by a coach.
I'm doing pretty well at keeping my hand behind the ball by starting with my index finger pointed at the pins and keeping it there throughout the swing. As a result my fingers are on the left side of the equator which has increased my rev rate apparently. Keeping my hand in this position keeps me from going too high with my backswing which is keeping things more simple. The leverage increase just comes with the program I guess.
Hopefully your speed will come back, too, Dennis. It must feel great to have no knee pain. Your doctor did a great job for you and likely any exercises he recommended in therapy worked well, too. Keep it up!
