Anatomical Drilling Technique
« on: March 04, 2015, 11:02:07 AM »
I saw this term on a FB page and was wondering what exactly it is?  Anyone drill their balls this way or have experience with it?  Wanted insight before I decided to spend the $12.95 that he is asking.  Thanks!!

It's a round object...any angle can be duplicated off any line one draws...

Had a driller that knows the method drill a few balls for me...I see little difference overall but my rotation might have lowered a tad bit.

My main concern is when I try to roll the ball end over end my thumb starts to hurt....why is this? No real issues on my normal release.

Thoughts?

I took the plunge, figured it was only $12.95.  If it worked it worked and if it didn't it, well was only $12.95.  Unlike the tri-grip i was happy to take the risk.

Anyway, even though I'm really happy with my current fit i found that the ball fitted a lot more comfortably in the hand and made my release feel a lot more effortless.  Immediately i noticed that my speed and rev rate increased and even my track was slightly higher then before.

Straight off the bat I hit games of 225, 238 and 247, usually i average 210 in our house but shot execution seems to have improved.  From what i can see, I'm impressed with his method. 

I'm implementing it on a few more bowlers as I'm curious to see how it effects them.

If you're skeptical I'd say just go for it, you've got nothing to lose really.


How did it go on the other folks you tried?

Is it worth having a go at?

Cheers,

Pete

Sounded interesting, so I bought it.  Tried the drill on my wife's ball and on mine.  Made no difference on my shot and only a minimal difference on my wife's.  I don't use it any more.

I bought it, drilled one ball, ring finger span felt WAY too long.  I made an adjustment to shorten the ring, then it just never felt right.  I practiced with it a few times, then decided to punt and sold it on eBay. 

The method made sense to me in a static position.  If I could keep that feel through the swing, I think that I would like it.  I didn't seem to get it on my initial trial.  With that being said, it's a little different way to think about pitches/angles, but at the end if the day, this can just as easily be described using the standard T layout...

if you have over 1/2 rev/forward finger pitches, you will notice the different, i have adjusted my lateral pitch long time not success until get the ADT from Joe, the latest modification of the thumb/finger angle is ring finger need to minus 5 degree with Middle finger because of the bridge between finger is somehow larger when using the finger grips, now finger is perfect, but thumb still need time to adjust on the 'away pitch'

Does the Interchangeable Thumb Insert work with ADT ?

Interchangeable Thumb is good , as long as the new pitch don't have much changes,  just redrill another slug insert and don't need full plugged

+1, every person I know who has tried it wound up coming back to me fix their grips back to their normal grips.  Most said it was the worst investment they've made.

The technique is derived from the anatomical nature of how the hand naturally grips/grasps an object. Accordingly, the process allows a significantly better fit which reduces grip pressure, reduces tension in the wrist, increases swing fluidity and improves the release.

Testing has seen the removal of pain for a bowler who had chronic pain while bowling each and every time he bowled for 2 years. With the fit change, the performance for this bowler also improved. He averaged over 240 in his national selection for games 3 - 7 in dual pattern Seoul and Mexico City. He won 2 of 6 blocks in the trials and earned a spot on his national team for the first time. Below is another bowler with a before and after showing how the hand sits on the ball better with the Anatomical Drilling Technique. Reduced tension in the wrist, a freer swing and an improved release.

And you felt it was so important enough to revive a thread that hasn't had a post in over two years.
