  1. Good Visual as well as Feel 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Dec 2020

    Not only do the two colors allow you to see proper ball rotation, the weight is heavy enough to feel your fingers come through the holes on the release.

  2. Great Trainer for the "Mid" bowler 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jun 2020

    I love this product, gives the bowler a lighter weight item to be able to slow down enough to actually see where their hand is and correct posistion

  3. IMPROVE RELEASE 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th May 2020

    I purchased this product as it looked like an excellent tool for a senior citizen whose ball speed and average is dropping. Also it was light weight and you could practice at home. My goal is to improve my release(s) and timing. The product looks and feels great to the hand. As I don't have anyone to work with I throw the ball into an old sleep sofa. In just a few day I have notice a marked difference on how the feel trainer comes off my hand. I can hardly wait for the bowling lanes to reopen so I can see the results from working with this great tool.

  4. Changing my release 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th May 2020

    I've been around a while. As a senior bowler averaging 200+ , I've had my game pretty well ingrained but felt a change in my release to the modern release could help me raise my game to a higher level. Its been a challenge, but by being able to use the ball at home, am finding getting the feel for bringing the bent elbow and the hand collapse techniques to feel normal is a huge help. The size and weight of the 5" ball seem just right for me. Will be using this tool for my students too! ( I'm Silver Certified )

  5. Convenient Training Tool 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Mar 2020

    I like the size and weight of this tool. The best thing about it is the two-part color so I can see the angle and speed of rotation that I am achieving with it.

  6. A must for new bowlers 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2019

    I wish I had the feel trainer when I was learning to bowl then I wouldn't have to retrain my release. But I haven't been bowling all that long (4 years) that I can't relearn so it has become a vital element of my practices. It is portable enough that I even take it to the gym with me. Drills, drills, drills! My rating of 4 is not reflective of the product itself but rather that Ive only had the trainer for 2 weeks and have not yet reaped the benefits. No doubt that will happen once leagues begin. Excellent quality and arrived promptly. I would recommend to anyone looking to learn or improve their game.

  7. Must have for serious bowlers! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2019

    I have been using the Feel Trainers for several months. This purchase was for another bowler after I demonstrated it's purpose. He asked that I order it for him on the spot. He is a 230 average bowler.

  8. Since I got it, Our team has won 19 of 21 points. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jul 2018

    It is amazing how getting the feeling in my hand and my team mates hands has helped our scores. My coach showed this to me and then I ordered it.

  9. Great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2018

    I'm a bowler and a bowling coach. The quality of the material is great and arrived faster than expected. I really like the color design since gives you a visual feedback on your release.

  10. Very well made 5 Star Review

    Love it a wonderful tool

  11. Yo-Roll Trainer! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Oct 2016

    Great tool for teaching the yo-yo and traditional release. I have my bowlers pair up and play catch using zero and 30 degree axis rotation. We also bounce it and walk it to practice the yo-yo. Great Training device! Color scheme helps bowlers understand ball rotation.

  12. Must-have bowling adjunct! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2016

    I bought a feel trainer (fol ball) a few years back. It worked out great. It is small enough to be portable and heavy enough to give you the "feel" of having something weighty like a bowling ball in your hand. There are several easy exercises that you can do to strengthen your muscles and work on the hand/eye coordination crucial for targeting on the lanes. Also, the color pattern gives instant feedback as to what kind of rotation you are imparting to the ball at release. Since I help coach youth league where I live, I have started giving the device to the kids as a way to encourage and help them advance.

  13. Great Training Aid 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jan 2016

    We spent 3 days at Kegel Training Center in Florida over the Holidays and they had us use the feel trainer. My son was so into it I purchased on and it arrived a few days ago. He is spending a lot of time working on his release and this makes it easy to do at home. Great product...I highly recommend it!
