In order to have your bowling game improved and hit a clean strike, spin the ball correctly. When talking about standard 10-pin bowling, deliveries or throws come in two categories that need to be mastered. In bowling, the most basic shots are straight shots. This simply means that the bowling ball will straightly follow a linear path, thus the word straight shot means. Keep in mind that your hand is point A and the pin is point B; these are the two points that are needed to be considered in a straight path. You are simply throwing directly to your target. Hook shot is the other type of category, which curves as it gets closer to the pins. A hook shot looks like a straight shot at the beginning, but it will start to curve before it reaches its target. The ball will be compelled to spin on its axis due to its sudden curve direction. To make sure that a tighter spin and hook are created the bowling balls will be added with weights.
It is noted that in a straight shot, the motion of the ball behaves differently; thus spinning a bowling ball is not a challenge at all. What's makes them different is that the ball tilts when it reaches the end of the lane.
It is highly recommended that you use a bowling ball that is made from reactive resin or urethane. Using bowling balls made from these materials is very advantageous especially in delivering a hook throw. And so, making a strike out is not far from happening even in case of separated pins. One may notice that the ball spins the moment it is released from hand. This is why it is important to choose a ball to use very carefully so that you can make a spin with ease. However, keep in mind that mastering a spin can't be done overnight. One should be focused and patience.
Of course, you can use a regular plastic bowling ball instead. However, you should be prepared to be disappointed since it does not possess the same physics as other bowling balls like urethane and resin cover stock bowling balls. These two aforementioned bowling balls can effectively cover the dry region of the bowling lane that a plastic ball cannot.
Remember to release the ball while you are sliding towards the foul line in just one solid motion. This will ensure that the ball will not get interrupted the all in one motion when you throw the ball. You can achieve a better momentum just by sliding forward; plus, you will lessen the chances of failed throws. There is no need to worry about a gutter-ball if you apply this technique.
In order to easily release the ball, make sure that you learn the proper way of gripping bowling balls. Remember, that it is one of the key components when you play bowling. It is also important that you learn backswing as well as forward swing. This will make it easier for your arm to move in forward motion. You should also avoid swinging your arm inwardly since it can result to missing the pins entirely. All you have to do to create the best momentum is to maximize your body's natural movements. You don't have to follow the bowling techniques of others, just learn how to bowl naturally so that you will be more comfortable with your throws. Being comfortable is important in order to play better, and with it, you will be able to transfer more energy to the ball. You should also rotate your hand when you are throwing the ball if you wish to put a spin and make your ball hook.
