Pin Positions For Your Bowling Balls For Sale

If you have ever watched a group of professional bowlers playing the game you will have noticed that they tend to mix up their shots for deliveries of the ball. At some stages of the game depending on the pin positions and experienced bowling player will either choose to toss a curve, rolled the ball slowly down the lane, or when required throw it as fast as possible in a straight line in order to maximise the “damage” as the bowling ball hit the pins.

In order to mix up your game like this you will need more than just one type of bowling ball. This is because while some balls are designed with a straight throwing in mind others are designed to be curved or in other words “bend” as they travel down the bowling alley. For straight throwing a plastic bowling ball is ideal, but if you want to toss a curved shot instead then you need to purchase of ball that is up to the task.

You may also fall into the category of thinking that by throwing the ball quickly you have more chance of hitting a strike. You wouldn’t be alone by taking this since just about every new player of the game has this thought process at some stage or another early in the bowling “career”.

Of course with a lot of averages the chances are that you will eventually get a strike by throwing the ball down the lane as quickly as you can, but a real pro knows that in order to increase the number of times that you get a strike or spare you have to have a little more to your game than just brute force and speed. Furthermore, getting strikes isn’t just the sole objective of the game - nobody is going to always get a strike and so for this reason you have to plan ahead and consider what you are going to do in order to knock down the remaining pins to make a spare.

Again, this is where choosing a bowling ball that is applicable to the situation makes all the difference. But in order to choose a ball that will suit the pin positions you need to have some knowledge of what balls are best for which situations.

Bearing in mind that the best way to hit a strike or hit the entire lot of 10 pins is to ensure that the bowling ball strikes them at some sort of an angle. This can be done by rolling the bowling ball at speed so that it connects with the first few pins by throwing it from the side of the lane and aiming it to the middle, or if you like you can curve the ball so that it bends back in to strike the bowling pins in this position. If you put a counter-clockwise torn on the ball then it is said to be a semi-roller.

To do this not only will you need a bowling ball that is suitable for spinning, but you will also need to ensure that the tone and thumb position are at as close to 12 o’clock as is possible. As you then begin to take your shot, just before you release the ball you should spin your hand slightly in a counter-clockwise direction, and on release the ball will begin to spin in a counter-clockwise manner, picking up speed and spinning as you require as it makes its way down towards the desired bowling pins.

Your objective here is to “find the pocket”. This is what the term is for hitting the exact area on the packet of bowling pins with your bowling ball that will give you the maximum chance for hitting a strike. Depending on whether you are left-handed are right-handed the area will change from side to side, but it is the area that is between the very first pin and the pin just behind it on the side that you are throwing from. This means that if you are right-handed it will be on the right-hand side and likewise if you are left-handed the area will be on the left-hand side. Just remember when searching through any of the bowling balls for sale that you need to select one that will enable you to take the shot that you wish.
