What was your lateral before? I used to have 5/8" reverse, 1/8" right/under. Then I dropped to 5/16" reverse and 0, switched from a standard T grip to an Offset T grip (1/4"), but ovaled my thumbhole a little larger to I could get in 1/16" either way. Once I did that, I had the most comfortable grip I ever had.

If that was aimed at me, I dunno. We tried a few lateral pitches, and when I was holding the ball, the one I went with, was the one that felt most comfortable to me. Before now, all I ran was 1/4 reverse, I didnt comment on having problems gettin out of the ball. All I wanted to do was be able to turn it, now I'm focused on clean releases, I've cut my loft down a whole lot. One of the best praises I received was last Saturday when a bowler from the opposite team said I had one of the smoothest releases he'd seen. He said he couldnt hear the ball hit the lane.
