2) I seem to have a mental problem with the 3 - 10. Is there a standard move off of the 10 pin line or something that minimizes the mental space between the two pins? - (I finally left a 5 7 and moved 4 1/2 boards left and picked it up; 1 1.)


if you don't want to shoot in between it you could just throw your strike ball. it will hit the 3 and slide it into the 10

Strike ball for the 3 - 7 might be a good idea. I'll try it tomorrow - Thanks

Why not just throw straight at a six pin? That should do the trick.

And likewise for the 5-7, aim for the 9 pin.

Both work for me. I still haven't figured out the 3-10 yet but I'm getting close.

Looking a lot better there John, and I see what you are saying with your trailing leg. One way to fix it is to get a little bit of angle in your shoulders (right shoulder just below the left) and to bring the ball in closer to the ankle at release. If you watch your trail leg closely you will notice it starts to tuck under your body but then stops and moves back to 6:00 in order to keep balance because of the flat shoulders and the ball being out from the ankle. If you can fix those your trail leg should do its thing naturally, just remember it is the counter weight to the bowling ball so whatever the ball and you arm does, the leg has to compensate for it.

Also, not to rain on your spare pickup but it was a 4-9 I am almost certain.

You are right. It was the 4 - 9.

I was having fun today practicing the 5 - 7 with no 7. I do leave a lot of single 5's. Move 4 1/2 boards left and throw a strike ball. Sure enough pops the 5 pins to where the 7 pin would be.

And no on the strike ball for the 3 10. Better for me to work on not "tugging" my spare ball and going at the 3 from the left side.

If you want to bounce the ball of the ball off the 3 into the 10, my adjustment is just to stand two boards right of my 10-pin position. Try that while keeping everything else the same and see how that works. That should put you close enough to at least adjust off it fairly easily. You might even be able to practice it on a full rack or just the 3-pin like you did with the 5-7 on your 5-pin leaves.

Amateur, that is also my adjustment for the 3-10 baby split.

John, glad the 5-7 adjustment worked out for you, now if you don't think about it during league play you should make it about 90% of the time. Its just another ball, no big deal!

I just got my Video camera back from my mom. I just wanted to post my 5-7 pick-up before I tape over it.



Four boards left of strike shot works, but three boards left works best for me.

It used to be two boards left back in the days of plastic and rubber gear (aim at your same target as your strike by the way for those wondering what to aim at).

You left it because if you look at the way you released the ball, everything was going upward, the swing, your head your body, everything was heading ^

Just a side note about 5-7 splits (5-10 for me). You say you move inside and shoot at your strike target? Shouldn't I go relatively straight at it? What I do is move way outside and throw straight at the 5, a bit to the left, usually the reactive ball will hook by itself just enough to slide the 5 into the 10. Is it better to go deep in and hook it?

As for the baby split, I usually try and slide the 2 into the 10 instead of fitting the ball in between.
