    Do you use the same target and starting position to shoot the 4-7 as you do for the 7? If you shoot the 7 cross alley with a straight ball, part of the ball should pass through where the 4 pin would be more than half the time that you make it. Moving your start a bit left should increase your miss room for the 4-7.

    No. I use a plastic T-Zone and stand on about 32 and target 15 for the 7 pin and for the 4-7 I stand 32 and target 17. I'm not that accurate though so those are where I 'target' but not necessarily where I hit...lol. But yeah I stand in the same spot but move my target right about 2 boards for the 4-7 (lefty here).
    But I tend to tug alot of my 7's because of the mental thoughts about the gutter where with the 4-7 I don't think of it cause I know I'm not gonna be as close to the gutter (or shouldn't be)

    I never use my spare ball for 7 pins. I just hook the Phaze into it.

    Maybe you should stand 32 and target 17 for the seven pin and move your target to 18 for the 4-7. Some of our really good youth bowlers are using 4th arrow for their corner pins, which might help with not worrying about the gutter

    Yeah I really need to work on this. Thankfully I usually only leave a few 7's a night so don't get alot of practice and with everything going on now it's hard to get practice in.

    I see the pros targeting just inside the 4th arrow but I'm already far enough right that my right foot is almost up against the ball return. Only option would be a 3 step approach and I think that would mess me up even more.

    One odd thing about me (well not the only thing...lol) I line up using my left toe. I have kind of transferred those over so 32 is ballpark. I line my left toe up on 25 which should put my inside foot about 30ish. I have always used my left toe so hard to break that...lol

    oops. guess that would have been good info...lol. I use my plastic ball for 4's, 6's, 7's and 10's. Everything else is my strike ball. I struggle with 10's too. For the 10 I stand on about 18 and throw over 17. Don't have an exact number but figure my ball sets down on about 10

    Tuesdays league scores.

    174/203/212 = 589. Some pretty un-inspired bowling. Never settled into any kind of rhythm. Longest string of strikes was three. Tugged at least a half-dozen shots, and paid dearly on most of them with splits. Put on a flurry of 6 out of 7 strikes to save the last game. I really need to put my finger on what makes this house tick. I'm not used to the whole "peoplethrowingplasticstraightdownthemiddleofthela ne" dynamic in this league, and it's really starting to grate on me. Starting to question why we left the scratch league. Average ticks down to 204. I really gotta get my head out of my a**.
