    Remember that your speed is measured with a cheap version of a radar gun, and it's on an angle as well. The straighter your ball goes by that "band", the faster it will appear to be. Guys with a big arc are probably faster than the gun shows. Straighter guys, the speed shown might be a little closer to the truth.

    Watch the Chris Paul Celebrity Pro-Am and then you will really question the stats that Fox is throwing up there. After watching that there is no way those numbers are accurate. Some of the celebrities were throwing straight down the lane yet still had high rev rates.

    Specto may not be the most accurate for rev rate because it usually a formula and doesn't actually read the revolution on the ball. I took a lesson at Kegel and it said I a rev rate of 380+ and I'm closer to 280.

    You are right but my speed is quite a bit faster than most in my league by about 1.5 MPH. Mine reads around 17.0 to 17.7 usually where my teammates are all closer to 15.5 to 16.0 so I know I'm faster than most in my league (not just based on my teammates speed but across the board).

    I was wondering how a camera could possibly read the RPMs on an object from any angle.

    That would have to be some amazing software to figure out the axis of rotation on a moving target, with both speed and rpms constantly changing.

    The straighter/harder the ball is thrown the higher the revs will show with Spector as it uses a formula. It’s not actually counting revs.

    I guess I'm a Philistine. I pay attention to my ball target, track shape, and how it gets through the pins and deck. I don't much care about mph o
