I'm going to go out on a limb and say that your ball doesn't fit properly, or you wouldn't be lofting it 10ft down the lane.

In the from behind clip you can see your swing tense up as the ball is dropped into the swing, this means if you don't squeeze the ball to death then it will fall off your hand.

Can you post a picture of your thumb in the ball and your fingers laid across the finger holes so I can see if your span is even close before I give you any advice past that.

Not the best photos, but from img261 it looks way stretched. Do your finger nails hit the back of the hole, with your hand in can you put a pencil between your hand and the ball?

Regarding your videos what were you targeting, and were you hitting your target? Looks like you might have an issue pulling the ball unless that is where you are aiming.

not my target at all ball didn't push to the right enough meant to come in on the right side if the head pin so happens it was a lucky strike. and i have never tried to hit a pencil in there, i feel the main problem is getting the ball to push far enough, then when i do it doesn't have enough bite to get back.

That is a sign that your span is stretched.

If the ball isn't fit correctly it will make doing everything else correctly very difficult.

What are you using for targeting (arrows, dots, pins, other)?

Mainly I'm trying to get it out to the arrow just right of the middle one assuming the lane doesn't have the 2 dark hash lines then I try to get the inside one
