Wrist Control and Protection in Bowling

 By: John Smi
Choosing the right ball is difficult enough, but it does not end there. Remember, to play well and have a better grip of the ball, you should choose the right bowling glove. Gloves differ from each other and have their own pros and cons. The first question that players ask is if a glove is necessary.

Consider a glove that provides the needed support from the hand to the wrist. Some are very expensive because they are made of leather; however, the physical support for the wrist is not actually what is needed most by some bowlers. Golfing gloves are sometimes used as they give the right amount of wrist support needed to control their swing and keep them from releasing when the hand is not in proper position. No matter what kind of glove you choose, it is far more important to consider the fit rather than the cost of the glove. A glove may be uncomfortable at first, but is good support for the front and back of the wrist. Consider these things when choosing:

- A wrist or hand injury from previous games can help identify the weakness felt when bowling;

- A well fitted glove gives more flexibility and movement to the player; The player can feel when the wrist is straight even when not wearing the glove; and

- It is appropriate if a player with a small hand and wrist show the need for extra strength to have the perfect swing.

Beginner gloves that cost from $12 to $25 have simpler design that has metal attached in the front and back for support. The problem with new players is that they sometimes use older used gloves that do not fit properly and may hamper the muscle growth needed for a natural swing.

Mid-range gloves cover the area from the wrist to the fingers. Some of the best ones on the market are the Ebonite Force, Master Power Paw, Cobra Products' Scorpion, and Ebonite Lock 2-3-4. These gloves keep the fingers from flexing when the ball is about to be released.

Advanced bowling gloves are either shorter or longer but cover the fingers. They are designed with much pressure placed on the index finger to produce the rotating motion of the ball at the time of release. The objective of this glove is to keep the fingers under the ball's equator. They are made of lasting metal that can be adjusted depending on the player's choice of rotation's speed. The price can be from $40 to as much as $80.

Remember gloves have advantages and disadvantages. What is important is the timing and practice one dedicates for skill advancement.
