  1. I have to disagree with low ball as a practice for the corner pins. By trying to bowl for just the 10 pin you cut down your area for error. The middle of the 10 pin is on the forth board. You only have to nick the edge of the pin to knock it down. You can actually aim for the six pin and still knock down the 10 pin. Walter Ray showed that to me in a lesson that I had with him. It was the greatest time of my life, next to my marriage, lol.

    1. I noticed that same thing when first starting. Whenever I get into playing a lot of lowball it seems almost inevitably that I miss my first ten pin when I go back to a standard game because I’m trying to be too precise. What I actually started doing was to play low ball for a 60-game going 6-9-10 and 4-7-8.

  2. What a “Show Off” Chris… LOL!! What a shot. Wondering how many “takes” it took to convert the 7-10 with two balls. Amazing buddy!

  3. She is wrong ar 1:14. Plastic balls *can* hook, all the way up to the whole lane. In both directions too. I’ve gotten quite good at picking the 6 and 10 pins with my T-Zone thrown backup ball from the left gutter. I’ve also seen my other plastic ball hook from boards 1-2 all the way across to either the 7 pin or the left gutter more than once.
    True, the plastic balls aren’t designed to hook and therefore won’t do it on its own, but they will hook if you do your part. Claiming they won’t hook is fraudulent, full-stop.
