Hi Lynda

You've got the plastic thing going against you. Synthetic lanes and the basic nature of plastic means that the ball just isn't going to do much of anything.

So in addition to changing to a more modern ball, I would also see if you can go up in weight.

My M-in-law uses a 12# ball and you can see it deflect a LOT in the pins. My wife uses a 14# ball and the difference is huge. IF YOU CAN, see if you can go up even to 13 or 14#. It will make a big difference.
