Whew! Thanks for unconfusing me which doesn't take much these days! Yes, I think I have read the same here that the pit has a slight tilt to it towards the ball return. Makes sense so the ball rolls back to the return mechanism.

Sometimes I'll use my plastic ball which is a little lighter and try to hurl it down the lanes at the corner pin. Heavier ball goes slower but has more mass so pick your poison.

Thanks much.

What is the non-gutter pin? Is that the one opposite the ball return?

Ha! Ha! Yes. I mean the outside gutter away from the ball return.
I have read here that the ball return gutter is deeper and has less chance of a pin coming out of it. IE: To max out chance of picking up the 7-10, target 10 pin on right lane, left lane target 7 pin.
As a side note: one of my goals in bowling is to pick up the 7-10 split. I am lined up to shoot my single 7's & 10's with that in mind. So when I finally leave a 7-10 I am excited and ready to make it. I shoot my normal shot (no harder or softer) and hope for the best; been close but haven't made it yet.

PS My normal is probably considered hard! - 18mph on the overhead.
