Next time I bowl one-handed I'll have to try fiddling around with the balance arm.
    A slow throwing cranker I used to bowl with used to grab his left leg before the front swing. It was the only way he could bend his leg. On his follow through he got a ton of lift, if he had anymore revs he'd put a burn line down the lane. He threw a ton of strikes with the help of the side boards but he couldn't pick up a spare to save his life. He'd either throw 240's or 110. LOL

    I tried this out last night, pointing my thumb down and wow did it screw me up at first. LOL I did see the difference though. It's gonna take some getting used to because it doesn't feel very natural. Then again, any change after doing something the same way for over 3 decades won't.
