We were just talking in chat that I was probably within 20 miles of CoachJim this past weekend. We went down to Baltimore for a long weekend and went to the DC zoo on Sunday. Not that I had time to bowl, but I didn't realize you were that close to DC.

At least you went to the National Zoo in DC and not the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore.

We went to the National Aquarium at the Inner Harbor the day before. My wife went to college in Baltimore and then worked there for a while so she knows the area pretty well. We thought we'd just take a long weekend and do some stuff my 4 year old would like. She had a good time but I still think he favorite parts were the swimming pool at the hotel and riding on the metro.

Just drop me a pm when ever you guys are going to be in the DC area, I can get to any bowling center in the area in less than an hour. The Bowl America in Gaithersburg MD treats me well, maybe I could set up an all day or weekend clinic type thing.

Just wanted to thank you guys again for the tip. Today I had league and even though I started really bad because I only slept for 1 hour, I decided to try keeping my wrist cupped in the last game. I had the front 9 and finished with a 279, which I haven't had for more than a year.

After league, I practiced the pro release for 6 games and my rev rate seemed to go up immediately. There were two or three throws that really felt like I didn't do anything, but the ball rolled like mad. Tomorrow I'm bringing my camera and will post videos of the new release.

So, thanks again. I really needed someone to steer me in the right direction.

Thats what you are looking for, the shots that are like that. Its just a matter of repeating that every strike shot and being consistent and then your scores can really soar.

Yeah, hand position is weak and that is all I can really see, but I am not the caliber of coach that some of these other guys are. This article was shown to me, so I will pass it on to you.

Congrats Luksa. It's always an eye opener the first time you get it right, and it feels like nothing, and then the ball hits the breakpoint and springs off it like TJ just threw the ball.

Keep up the good work, and get us some more video soon smile

One thing that may help in alleviating that lean to the right in your stance is to place your left hand more under the ball. From the video it appears that your left hand is on the side of the ball with all of the weight of the ball supported by your right hand. By taking some of the load off of the right side there should be little or no lean to the right.

As for cutting down the verticality of your followthrough you might try staying down low a little bit longer than you are doing now. The knee on your sliding leg straightens out fairly quickly as you release the ball. While you are not exactly 'popping up' at the foul line, by keeping your slide knee bent at fraction later and your trailing leg down a fraction later it may help in stopping the feeling that you may be hitting up on the ball. Also if you reach out towards your breakpoint and let your hand end there instead of ending your followthrough with your hand above your head that might also cure you of excessive bending of the elbow.

I was looking into this, but just can't figure out how you can get this to work in bowling???? It will only record 3 seconds of video in smooth slow record... I don't know about you, but it generally takes me about 10 seconds from start of approach to release. So in summation I would hit the button.. grab my ball wipes it down and then it would stop recording.. LOL
