The BOLA TrueMan unleashes virtual bowling

The new TrueMan by BOLA displays a high-contrast LED animation of a bowler in front of the Bowling Machine. The animated 'bowler' runs in to deliver the ball and his action synchronises exactly with release of the ball. Coaches and players can create their own bespoke database of deliveries, overs or bowling spells from a library of animations. Bowler animations give players the natural cues they need to release all their normal batting triggers.
