how do you grip a bowling ball well you

got to remember you're not going to

throw a bowling ball you're going to

roll it so proper grip is very very

important when you're fitting into a

ball you have to make sure you have

enough pressure to hold the ball in

place without dropping for a fingertip

grip you can place your fingers in the

ball bear your thumb and apply pressure

with your thumb towards your fingers

without putting any tension on the

fingers when you have a conventional

grip you have to use all three fingers

to basically hold on to the ball all

three are inserted deep to the second

knuckle and you're going to apply

pressure to all three so the rotation

and the speed are going to be different

between both both pressures on each grip

for a conventional grip that's more for

like the novice bowler beginner Bowl to

get acclimated with how you hold the

ball you're going to have pressures of

all three fingers inside the ball at the

same time it's going to give you a

different rotation maybe a little bit

straighter projection down the lane when

you go to a fingertip grip phenotypic

rep is more advanced it has more of your

fingertip itself in the ball only and

then you're buried burying your thumb

inside the ball in order to get some

rotation you have to allow that finger

grip to be relaxed and also get the

thumb out of the ball quicker so a

fingertip grip it allows you to do that

and you'll attain a more dynamic and

reaction of the bowling ball down the

lane a conventional grip compared to a

fingertip grip gives you a different

dynamic around the ball conventional

grip you have your fingers more inside

the ball shorter span less of a span

around the ball so we'll give you a

different rotation a little more speed

like a fingertip grip you have more of

your hand around the circumference of

the ball so it's going to give you a

little bit more tilt a little more

rotation and will create more dynamics

for the bowling ball so when you insert

your hand into a ball you have to make

sure the fingers and thumb was straight

in the ball if you bend your knuckle

it's going to create a lot of friction

against your skin and could cause a

bruise or callous or blister properly

insert your thumb you have to make sure

the pad of your thumb is flat against

the inside of the ball there's not much

pressure but enough pressure to hold

onto the ball during a swing and that's

how you grip a bowling ball
