Versions of the Bowling Release

Be talking about some of the different releases we see nowadays and probably could probably maybe put them into four different categories of the releases let’s start with the new one that everyone’s seeing is the two-handed right we see lots of success with the two handers definitely on the men’s tour and you know the amount of rpms they are able to create and pin carry it’s it’s really actually pretty impressive we’re seeing a lot even a lot of youth players on our youth team Junior Team USA and around the country and around the world are actually doing this to edit release right and you know is it a release or is it more just a two-handed swing it’s almost like they’re just really swinging the ball with two hands but the release is really just with one that’s where the misconception is it really is not a two-handed release one hand releases and then the other one just does a contemporary what would you say a normal release so to speak but it actually is a do handed swing some user thumb and some don’t right and we’re not really seeing a big increase whether they’re using their thumb or they’re not and the RPMs if no it’s just kind of what a personal preference going to be style of whenever they’re doing this swing a couple of other releases we have is I don’t hate to use this word but a contemporary release so release that the good three quarters have been taught for years and years and how they do it once you go ahead and show us what we do of the hand nothing wrong with that release you’ve done that for a while haven’t you had some success with it too haven’t you so the container when the thumb comes out the hand will continue rolling through but it is going to be a counterclockwise rotation so the key here is making sure that we keep this elbow in when I make that rotation now what are the some ways seen the newer players are doing I don’t want the new players we’re seeing a lot more on the Team USA players the younger players a new generation that grew up on the resin bowling balls their hand position is going to be in the same place they start to release the ball but they will do what they will actually kick their fingers back yeah they kind of go more clockwise so it almost pulls the elbow in gets the same rotation but it actually is going to be rotating on the inside of that bowling ball which it’s very interesting how the evolution that games gone because when we don’t see a lot nowadays is the full roller right one of the best players in the world Shannon feel how sceeto it it’s a very heavy role because it’s covered in circumference of the Bowlin ball back in the 60s 50s they had the full rollers actually went in between the fingers and thumb to do that release it’s the same thing on the new modern players of turning in but they would actually turn their thumb into the backswing so it almost like used to call it a figure eight they would turn their thumb and come back and then turn so the modern release actually has some history going back all the way to the full roller the key is is understand what your release is what’s going to be best for you and you can actually practice it with some drills
