I have the same problem, but i'm an offie
im a legspinner n one of my weapons is rippin the ball. the furthest I've turnt a ball is 2 n a half feet probably more. so wot i could recommend is as the others say get the ball with sidespin n keep a cocked wrist and etc but i don't wanna impose myself but try varying ur tightness and loosness of ur grip make sure ur gripin the ball right for a start. But my grip is different i like mine quite loose but my thumb is right on the ball cradling on the the (drum stick) part of the thumb. not resting n my thumb plays a key role wen bowlin a leggie. as i bowl my thumb pushes the ball up to my spinnin finger to get maximum spin aswell as the wrist generatin revs. then u pivit rotate ur hips n shoulders n follow thru. but as some said on her strenghten ur fingers n wrist n bowl loopy n slow n u'l get more turn n pro curve if the seam is at 45 degrees. I'l post up vids of me bowlin soon wen its sunny lol
The best way to control the spin is to change the angle of release. 45 deg release is the usual angle. when it is close to 60 it has more side spin. when it is close to 20 it has more over spin.

I've had the same problem. Just try this.
Bowl slower, and just try spinning as hard as you can, but not as too hard you hurt your wrist. Once you've got the accuracy down, work on spin, then speed. Thats what I did, and I can spin it quite far, with accuracy and speed, hope it helps.

Legspinner, and Right Hand Bat
Bowl off spin, its much easier...
But seriously... I used to try and bowl leg spin, couldn't turn the ball at all, but my googly turned a mile? dont know how i could bowl awsome googlies but not very good leggies...
I can bowl awesome leggies, but not offspin too hard for my little fingers to grip the ball.
could any one tell em how to bowl the zooter n flippper
I would like to watch bowlers dominate batsmen like a dog would a tail-wagging contest against a rabbit. Which means I spend most of my days fuming and cursing the game. The Newlands Test between South Africa and Australia has vindicated my belief that batsmen are a bunch of weak-minded, inept fools only good for waving about sponsor logos.
The zooter was really just another fancy name for a slider.
For the flipper, keep it pretty much to a regular leg spin grip. But you don't use your main spinning finger - instead, it's almost like a "clicking" action that your fingers make as you let go of the ball. You squeeze it out, trying to get as much backspin on it as possible, and when you've delivered it your thumb sticks out towards where the batsman is, and the rest of you hand is almost like a clenched fist. The index and middle finger move back on the ball, while the thumb underneath pushes forward; all of which gets backspin on it.
