Re: ball rolling over the thumb hole

Have you changed hand positions or your release?? A buddy of mine, who is an excellent bowler had this happen all of the sudden awhile back. He went to travel league, and rolled over his thumb all day. Next night at league, back to normal.

He thought it could have been just how he was releasing and maybe coming up the back of the ball too much. You might give that a look and see if that's a factor.

Re: ball rolling over the thumb hole

Is it rolling over the thumb early or late on the lane? I have had some low RG balls that will flare all the around the ball and onto the thumbhole just before the pin deck if I put too much hand into it. Hitting the thumbhole early on the lane could be release related.

when i polished the ball it hit the thumb at the arrows and then i 4000 abralon pad sanded the ball it started to hit the thumb at around 45 feet. im kinda convenced that its me because my wendsday night leauge puts no oil on the lanes and on friday leauge puts a nice shot out so im adjusting and picking up bad habits:banghead:

Re: ball rolling over the thumb hole

So it doesnt happen with your vibe? What are the RG and Diff and drillings of the Vibe Vs the ball that is hitting the thumb? Do you have a whole lot of hand? What does your driller say about this?

Re: ball rolling over the thumb hole

The One - low RG and high Diff. Is it drilled close to 3 3/8 by 3 3/8? I had a revmaster (similar core numbers) drilled like that and when I played real deep and put a lot of hand into it, it would go about 50 feet and then thump thump thump...on the thumbhole...actually bouncing. The only way I could use that ball was on the outside of an oily shot and just lay it out there with less hand and let the ball do all the work.

Of course, this is conjecture. You need to get a driller to watch you chunk it.

Re: ball rolling over the thumb hole

Have you thrown the ball without the pinky in??

Just wondering if that's making you get too much around the ball??

Might be somewhere to start.
