In this experiemental tip, I share with readers a simple method to kill the ball reaction.  Use two fingers to reduce ball reaction (i.e., middle and thumb or ring and thumb).  Learn more....

Throw It Straighter with Two Fingers (Middle and Thumb or Ring and Thumb)

I have taught this two-finger method for converting spares on very dry conditions or as a strategy to reduce ball reaction when the lanes are burnt.  It works and will keep your ball in play when the lanes are difficult due to excessive friction.... When the lanes are bone dry or you are having difficulty converting the corner pins, try the following experiment:

(1) Experiment with putting just the middle finger and the thumb in the ball.  Throw the ball and observe the ball reaction.

(2) Experiment with putting just the Ring finger and the the thumb in the ball.  Throw the ball and observe the ball reaction.

(3) What do you notice about the ball reaction?
