Picking up the bowl:  To arrange the bowl in the arm with the correct bias and alignment place the bowl between your feet in the position you require. Hold the arm at a forward leaning angle and the jaws will fit over the bowl. With your thumb around the handgrip ( not on top ) lightly clench your fingers until the bowl can be picked up.

 

The Swing:  When you swing the arm it is not necessary to force the delivery. By lifting the arm up in front of your body the target area can be lined up and the weight of the bowl will naturally allow your arm to go into the backswing prior to delivery. The height of the backswing will depend on the distance required.

 

The Delivery:  Line up as for a normal delivery, be sure to take plenty of backswing without too much wrist as you should be swinging from the shoulder. As the arm swings forward unclench your fingers slightly to release the bowl at the bottom of the swing near the heel of your foot. Several practise swings should iron out any early or late release problems.

 

Some further considerations.

Grip:  Hold the arm in a loose clasp do not clench your fingers tightly as this will tend to effect the release.

Stance:  A fixed stance is satisfactory, some people prefer to take a shod step although this brings the arm closer to the green and must be allowed for.
