If you are a bowler averaging between 150 - 170, then you certainly will want no force in your bowling delivery.
In fact, all bowlers of all skill levels can benefit from not forcing the release, hurrying the forward swing in an attempt to put “more mustard” on the shot.
We see professional baseball pitchers on TV tossing a wild pitch from time to time or missing the strike zone more than they wish because of trying to force the pitch at a batter.
Bowlers surprisingly will overwork their release technique in hopes of gaining increased rev-rate and more power with their delivery.
Forcing the release can lead to inaccurate shots.
If you wish to gain increased power with your delivery, then you must be prepared to make other changes to your game to accommodate your proposed release change.
Realistically and in many cases, gaining revs and more power required skills some you may not possess. You definitely run the risk of hurting your game if you try to dramatically increase your revs.
If you are fully committed to raising your rev-rate or pure ball speed, then one sure way to do so successfully is to work with your natural talents and use the services of an experienced bowling instructor.
The world’s best players who have a fairly strong rev-rate use designed and well-practiced techniques to develop a repeatable delivery style and do not simply rely on brute force.
In fact, most instructors today teach using a rev-rate which does not approach a maximum level of revs because it generally leads to improved control and accuracy.
Don’t be trapped into being a bowler you are not.
Avid losing good balance, sacrificing control and accuracy by forcing your delivery.
Use your natural talents to their fullest and strive for no force in your bowling delivery.
