I'm not anywhere near the authority on this subject as Coach04 and others, but I've gleaned from a book
that I'm presently reading, in regards to the Breakpoint - I'm going on memory here, so others need to jump in if Alzheimers has taken over... - an optimum point on the lane to obtain a 6 degree angle into the pocket is for the ball to be on the 7th board around the 40' mark on the lane.
I don't believe that's an absolute or the only optimum Breakpoint; that's just what's running through my mind at the moment.
Hopefully we'll have some more discussion on this specific.
