John, I just can't remember ever leaving a 5 or 5-7 with my Terminator. Seems your entry angle is not deep enough or your speed doesn't let the ball finish. The ball should take that 5 out. I max out at 17 mph.

Hope you like your Terminator. Mine is the best ball I own. I have it drilled for more length, and I get a sharper finish. I can use it in game 1, but put it away when the oil starts to spread. It over reacts. But, I take it out in game 3, move outside and cross carrydown like it wasn't there.

The 2 lines I use are over 13 to 5 at the break on game 1, and then move outside, straight up 8 in game 3.

Hi Dennis,

I don't leave a lot of 5-7's, but I do spend most of my bowling life with poor, entry angle. I still pretty much blow the pins straight back & leave any possible single pin from the back two rows. I have about zero axis tilt & basically steer my "bike" on ice without any leaning.
I have brought my ball closer to my slide ankle & maybe my swing plane is straighter. But As much as I bowl I have only felt the power & leverage you guys talk about a total of three times; and just about shot the ball through the back wall of the building!
Until I get my hand under the ball & not on top at release I am screwed and it doesn't matter what ball I have. I'm about two weeks away from Ron's bowling camp and was hoping to power the Videos to you guys to dial me in closer. I kind of feel that I'm not even trained enough to go to a "advanced" bowling camp. Every Video I take is an early wrist turn, hand on top of ball tape that would just waste everyone’s time.
I do like my Terminator, but pretty much save it in hopes I can do it justice some day. I throw my BW Bite that has at lease 1500 games on it & has been in the oven every week for about a year now.
I will be posting pretty quickly here to show you what I mean. I still score well and throw a good spare ball, but down & in from the outside is still my only real game.
This weekend I’m off to Disneyland with the wife, but after that I will post a current bowing session.

Still having fun - in a frustrating kind of way,

~ John

John, I must live in a Terminator neighborhood. Even with the fads of newer balls, there are still quite a few Terminators on each set of lanes. And, many more carry the ball waiting for the right conditions.

It is good to have a ball that you can rely on and have trust in. When I get into trouble, reading patterns and lane conditions, I can always pull it out. I just know what it is going to do.
