  1. OK,go to your next supermarket get a plastic bag. Put some weight in it and you have the same thing!

    1. Hi,

      The “Swing Trainer” is designed for the “traditional” one
      handed swing in bowling and attempting to hold the bottom of the trainer
      with the opposite hand, simulating the two handed approach, would work
      against the design of the tool. This is not to say it can’t be used but
      we’re unfamiliar with how it may be applied.

      There are several videos in the Bowling Academy that
      address the two handed approach, including the arm swing. A short list
      of titles is below.

  2. Seriously, what do you call that “swing” tool? Looks like a great idea for a beginner like me. Also for folks who can’t throw a ball consistently. (Mine usually go left, and when I try to correct my swing, all bets are off)
