What kind of pitch do you use on your thumb ?

Generating a higher rev rate begins in the stance.To increase your rev rate, set your fingers in a stronger position by turning your wrist to place the ring and middle finger in the 7 and 8 o’clock position.
To set your hand in a strong position, at the point of release, you must keep your fingers in this position through the pushaway and into the swing. As you are developing a feel for this method, focus on holding this strong position until your hand passes your ball-side leg. This will establish the habit of keeping your hand in a strong position as you enter into the upswing setting the stage for a strong finger position at the top of the swing.
The easiest way to accomplish this is to focus on maintaining your ring finger in the same position, from the stance, through the push, into the swing. Keep the ring finger in the strong position.
It is also important to establish a leverage-producing body position. This will promote a later body position at the finish as well as increase your target accuracy.

This can be done by leaning to the ball-side after setting your hand. You are leaning at the shoulders to place your ball-side eye directly over your arm and the ball, which is aligned with the target line.
With this lean at the shoulders, you are placing your body in a position to promote dropping the shoulder as you release and finish. Ideally, you want the bowling hand under the ball-side eye at the point of release.

Watch for early turn, this is when a bowler begins to turn their hand too soon in the downswing. This early rotation leads the hand to be rotated around the ball before the release. This minimizes the potential of the hand to be in this strong position. Worse yet, this eliminates the potential of generating different ball reactions by changing the axis rotation, at the release.
To eliminate early hand rotation is to simply wait until your bowling hand reaches the intersection of your slide shoe heel. This requires patience and practice.Basically, you want a short acceleration point just in front of the ankle. By focusing on the heel of the slide shoe, you will be able to approximate this position.

A no-step approach is a good exercise to practice the release motion. Set up at the foul line in your finishing position. Create a smooth rounded pushaway and let the ball swing freely while keeping your palm forward. Fingers should move through and slightly counter-clockwise to add rotation motion as the thumb exits the ball. This drill also allows you to watch your hand motion to help improve the release more quickly. Remember it is very important that you have a free arm swing and maintain good balance throughout this exercise. Without these two pieces, it is more difficult to work on the hand motion of the release.

Your thumb pitches are based on a handful of factors. Your span length thumb length thumb flexibility and side to pitches are determined by the coke can test. All this info on proper fitting can be found on bowlingchat.net in the wiki link

Big thing for me was follow thru. I made follow thru a priority when I was up on the approach and the rev's came eventually. And I dunno if anybody put it on this thread, but...

PRACTICE!!!

Yes perfect practice makes perfect play I agree. I think with my rookie style of asking questions that I have made myself out to be a pretty bad bowler however I do have a standing scratch 182 avg. I am just trying to be more consistant and attempting to push my self and my game a little harder. You folks are certainly a great help and I so much appreciate all of you for taking the time to help me.

try to relax your hand when throwing the ball, odds are if you are trying too hard to get around the ball you will actually put less on the ball. Jus relax and let your hand do the work. But again, if you find that one release where you rip the ball. repeat that, over and over..dont worry about score. get that release conistent then go from there and find your mark and what not. And dont worry, we all here at MotivNation dont care if you avergae 220 or 120 everyone will help you as best as they can. Its truly a great group of people we have here!
