This DVD is extremely well-done, with detailed discussions of equipment, physical/mental preparation, ball delivery, reading & adjusting to lanes, and making spares. Parker Bohn's presentation style is also excellent -- very clear, relaxed, and engaging.

Equipment discussions have useful information for everyone from beginner to expert, and cover everything from proper fit for a ball (whether conventional grip, semi-fingertip, or full fingertip), shoes, peripheral/extra equipment (e.g., finger inserts, wrist supports, tape, rosin bags, etc.).

The spare-making section was especially well-done, and includes very detailed diagrams, discussions, and demonstrations for all the common leaves. Importantly, this is shown for both left-handers (by Parker Bohn III) and for right-handers (by Brad Angelo).

Also valuable were the "fireside chats" between Angelo and Bohn, during which they discussed many things they have learned over the years that have made the biggest difference to them.

I absolutely recommend this DVD to bowlers of all skill levels, whether you're just starting out, or have been carrying a 200 average for years - there's something in here for everyone.

This DVD was well done, but mistitled. It starts with the three types of grips, and that if you are a serious bowler, you may want to get your own shoes. It doesn't get any more basic than that. There was NO discussion of throwing a strike ball, Lane reading or lane breakdown. No mention of adjustments, ball selection, or proper angle to the pocket. I would only recommend this DVD to very young or new bowlers that have no clue about the game.

You know this was rather disappointing for me. I have Parker's great book, Bowling. What I was looking for from this tape was actual bowling techniques, like the bowling release and the reaction it would give you as a left hander. As everyone know, all the tapes are for right handers that the lefty has to visualize. I thought their were too much, "sit down" talking. The only real "bowling" lesson was making spares. Which actually, is covered well in his Bowling book. So all in all if you need help in others areas, as a lefty, this is not a good or excellent book. If you really need help in spare shooting I can get that on YouTube.

This video is very poor. Parker and Brad say a lot of words, but really do not convey much information. In most respects, the only way you would understand what they are talking about is if you already knew the information.

This is not beyond bowling basics. It is all about bowling basics. The title is all wrong. What makes it worse is that they do a poor job of explaining what they are talking about. Hence what I meant by a lot of talking but no information. They tell you what you need to do, but not how to do it!

I am very sorry that I spent the money and time on this video. Save your money and pass this one by.

I did find this DVD helpful, but unlike the title, seemed pretty basic. As others have mentioned, Mr. Bohn discusses the basics of equipment, bowling technique, simple stretching techniques and elementary concepts about approach (essentially, get to the lanes early, watch what others are doing and be positive even if you make mistakes).

While the information was helpful, the couple of sections where he and right-handed pro Brad Angelo sit around talking about various aspects of the game got a little dull. But to be fair, I don't know how you would present the information in a more interesting manner without more enthusiastic or exciting actors.

It was helpful that he brought in Brad, his right-handed fellow professional to show the techniques for right-handed bowlers and dialogue vs. just talk.

To me, the best aspect was the step-by-step approach to making various spares ("stand on X board, roll over Y board, hits the # pin on Z board").
I will review those over and over again.

And although it was mostly just a good review of the fundamentals, I do believe it helped me by reminding me of some of the basics I had neglected.
(Make a straight pushaway on your first step, hold the position of the wrist throughout the swing and land the ball about two feet on the lane like an airplane landing.)
Rolled my best league game of the season (223) the week after watching it, and in subsequent practice sessions feel like I am going to bowl at a higher level.

It gives you the confidence to work with the drills they give you, sparing has always been where the scores are made, and Parker shows how spares are made. Excellent DVD a must for any bowler at any level.
