Playing the inside line

Most bowlers like to play up the boards no matter the conditions. For those who can move inside, what lines are your comfort level, and how deep can you go before you become uncomfortable, and how tight inside can you play.

Re: Playing the inside line

Depends on where the ball return is. I don't walk around ball returns and then swing back on angle very accurately. I don't mind standing in front of a ball return if it isn't too far forward on the approach. This usually limits me to 4th arrow. After injuries, my revs are reduced and 4th is not so great an idea...

Re: Playing the inside line

Some of the tournaments we went to had an "H" pattern so you had to learn to play pretty deep...It was mainly a matter of getting enough practice playing in this area...After awhile, playing over the left gutter became fairly easy, but playing over the capping, that's a whole different story...

The whole idea though, is a visualization process...Let's say, we're playing a fairly normal pattern, but, it's breaking down and we need to move left...The points on a target line might be four different points, (it's a bigger arc), let's call it, A, B, C, D, for slower ball speeds, D is the one that get you in trouble...faster ball speeds could be A, B, C...

When playing on deep inside traps, the points become much narrower and the visualization process changes...Slower ball speeds will become, A,B,C and A,B for faster ball speeds...Here's the advantage of faster ball speeds, sometimes, they can still get the ball to react using a A,B visualization process...

Shoulder placement is extremely critical...

Re: Playing the inside line

I play deep inside alot do to revs and speed.

I enjoy standing in front of the ball return and go over say 30 and just watch it go out and bank off the wall on a house shot..

I get very uncomfortable when I have to toss it over channel it is really hard on my shoulder and probably not recommended by my surgeon

Re: Playing the inside line

I really enjoy the simple tweener shot of 20 to 7 and let her roll off the dry and I can move as deep as I feel fit without losing too much comfort(especially at alley Im hoping to start going to this fall has a ball return thats just as wide as the belt and goes out then is a Y shape for the balls to collect being so narrow I can stay right much easier over the oversized brunswick returns we see frequently around here....
