Axis rotation is the angle made between the bowling ball rotation and its movement down-lane. More axis rotation applied to a bowling ball gives you more skid and hook potential down-lane. Less axis rotation applied to a bowling ball gives you less skid and hook potential down-lane.

Silver level coaches Dan Triske and Doug O’Bryant along with Junior Gold Champion Annalise O’Bryant demonstrate how to control axis rotation with the Axis Trainer from Eileen’s Bowling Buddy.

Axis Trainer

Made of soft silicone rubber, this block is held in the hand with the finger holes positioned farthest from the wrist. As you flip this block, you will immediately begin to feel the muscles you use when coming out of your ball. Repetitions using varied hand positioning, but always seeking a fluid spiral, help to perfect axis variations and skills.

The Setup

Benefits of the Axis Trainer from Eileen’s Bowling Buddy are:

  • Great for all levels of bowlers learning to control their release
  • Practice zero axis
  • Learn to add and remove axis from your release
  • Learn to increase and reduce speed from your release
  • Work on proper hand position

0º Axis Rotation

Locking your elbow in close to your body, release the axis trainer with your hand behind it, giving you 0º of axis rotation.

This gives you the ability to make your ball turn less aggressively down-lane.

90º Axis Rotation

Locking your elbow in close to your body, release the axis trainer with your hand on the side of it, giving you 90º of axis rotation.

This gives you the ability to make your ball turn more aggressively down-lane. When you compare how the Axis Trainer flies through the air, notice 0º of rotation is pointed parallel to the ground and 90º of rotation is pointed forward towards its target.
