I didn't say Taiwan spinner better.Originally posted by solarbody11:Why all from Taiwan? Singapore also got spinners in the event right? Prove that Taiwan spinner better?
Agreed!Originally posted by harmzuay:I've always been of the opinion that whichever style of play comes out on top in any given event is more a reflection of the oil pattern laid down in said event, than the respective abilities of the bowlers.
After all, most bowlers at that level are good some way or other, regardless of their choosen style of play.
In terms of ball weight, spinners also lose out. In many sense, spinners are at the disadvantage. The only advantage I can think of, is spinners can endure longer series.I would not call a light ball spinner disadvantaged. But the general idea of the above paragraph is there. The difference in ball weights is due to:
Originally posted by harmzuay:Hi harmzuay,
On the other hand, spinners' bread and butter weapon is ball deflection.They want/need/require the ball to deflect and change direction once it contacts a pin. That is the reason they use a light ball.
A spinner's choice of ball weight is never due to weakness. I know a few spinners capable of throwing a decent hook with a heavy ball. They just prefer to spin a light ball.
I hope this helps.
I think solitary is looking for 2nd hand spinner balls....Originally posted by solitary:Hi, anyone selling spinner balls?
Hi k4korny,Originally posted by k4korny:correct me if i'm wrong.. I thought spinner balls are the same as normal balls except that the fingering is drilled differently?
If it is so, then if you're serious about learning spinner, you should get a ball custom made to your fingers/ hands.
Ya... Not necessary both finger holes must be side-by-side.Originally posted by solitary:Haha.. seems like everyone is talking abt everything except the availability of spinner balls. Allow me to join in the fun here..
I think its pretty true that spinner balls are just normal balls with no or little difference in the core. But there are still some so called spinner balls with pretty good reputation out there.. not really sure if those balls are really as good as they sound, but still, people would generally go for them.
As for the drilling, I think different spinners would drill their balls differently. I have my finger holes drilled very close together, whereas I've seen taipei spinners holding the ball (from newspaper) with one finger hole behind the other, unlike normal drilling where they are side by side.
Anyone came across this kind of drilling b4?
I have seen b4.. seems funny then..the guy wore a mechatechor.. then but his ball rev is more like parallel to the floor.. n then at the back it hooks..is this wat u mean?Originally posted by alexlum:have any of you seen a combi of hook and spin? ball starts off as what looks like a spin but it actually hooks when reaching the backend. is it possible???
