I really feel like I am still in that Alligator moat (Splits) of improvement that separates a 170-190 bowler from a 190-210 bowler.

I can keep my index finger in to help me with my early wrist turning, but that puts my PAP @ 0 Deg (looking at the wall)with a deck clearing 8, 9 or X straight ball.
I can spread my index finger out to encourage the side roll, but that seems to cause my wrist to jump to the outside of the ball really early putting my PAP at 90 Deg (looking at me)and the ball skids all the way through the pins.
Getting "better" (all things are relative) at letting the ball just fall in the down swing but not good yet.
My wrist is staying in place intermittently longer (PAP @ 55Deg)but I am not lined up necessarily for that and I pick up a board or two more curve and go right down the middle of the head pin causing splits - even thought it was, technically, a better release.

I guess, beside lamenting for my team 2, (That's not what we had in mind when we chose "Deadly curves" as a name)I would like someone to look at my above scoring and help me manage my improvement transition better with ball selection. I changed to my Terminator from my Xtreme Damage in the middle of the 3rd game and was still coming in high but was striking instead of splitting.

Have you tried a Pro Release wrist brace? Even if you only use it for a learning aid, it might still help you feel when you are losing your wrist position.
