    You should read the Kegel article:

    and watch this video:

    Something to note also is that Slowinski in one of his articles about the system, said you are not limited to just using the pins on your lane as a focal point. You can use pins on the lanes next to you or the edge of the masking unit etc..

    Also Rob is right the Exit point formula is geared more for sport type patterns, Also it doesn't work right on very short patterns.


    Slowinski:
    The exit point provides guidance not absolutes.

    (*) If the lane is hooking or has bump, you can play it like it is a shorter pattern. Wood will hook.... Old synthetic are sufficiently scratched enough to have a track. HPL will hook....

    (*) Conversely, if the lane seems tight, move in and play it like a longer pattern.

    And, general player characteristics will also apply.

    (*) A speed dominant bowler needs to play the pattern like it is longer.

    (*) A rev dominant bowler needs to play the pattern like it is shorter.

    Yes I do agree that it doesnt really work on house short due to the uneven distribution of oil. However, it still serves as a guideline for me to play better and to read the lane although it wont be as accurate.

    Okay, so I will have to focus my eyes on the arrow (my visual target) until my ball hit the target and then make sure that the ball move along the line until it reach the break point. Thank you

    Alright, I will take a look at this. Thank you so much.
