aXis Release Trainer

Interesting tool. A little pricey for what it actually is, but if it works as intended it would be useful. Very much so for youth or those just starting out.

That's the thing though - do you think it actually will help with real drills that help your release? I feel like the much gentler/slower action you have to take with something on this small of a scale changes things significantly but I'm no coach. Maybe it does translate.

What say you?

It looks very interesting.

I think it will help if used as a tool to help with getting the fundamentals down. Like learning to play the inside of the ball.

Big shortcoming I see is the length. Id like something a bit longer, at least just from looking at it.

It is almost a good idea. Once you get on the lanes with the bowling ball in you hands to take a full approach, or even a one step drill compared to this device things will change dramatically.

During the shut down we see all of the pros posting on social media different videos every day working on stuff from home. It can help some with staying in a bit of bowling shape especially with your legs, but it is no where close to how you throw the ball on the actual lanes.

When the pros are able to get back on the lanes and practice that is what separates them from the rest. As far as this thing goes, I'd save your $300 dollars and apply it to a lesson and actual practice.
Ignite your game, and set the lanes on fire. www.facebook.com/ignitebowling  or @ignite_bowling
