Looks like you go through the nose a lot. I would say that when you do that, you should change any one thing - speed, ball, revs, or axis rotation - and you'll get something more manageable. Oh yeah, I forgot the most obvious - move right 2 boards.

Leaving 4-7 or 6-10 makes it so much easier to mark.

I only get big-four etc when I try to adjust after a brooklyn and don't adjust enough. Funny thing about oiled lanes. You don't know where the oil is and sometimes adjust right into a puddle or a dry spot. When that happens, you just have to try various spots, not stay in the same place.

I see you have two very strong balls and a spare ball. It might help to get a weaker ball. I love the Jigsaw Trap, but it's got a mean hook. A weak ball - just something a little less hooky - will get you a different look on those difficult nights. Maybe a Tropical Heat or Nomad Pearl. I prefer more pearl than less, but a lot of folks here like the hybrids. I don't like solids except on wet lanes, where they really shine.

8-10 (which I call a Stoner in honor of Rob Stone) is just plain bad luck.
