Will try it in warm-ups just to get the feel of it.

    We are in a 3 way tie for 2nd now and bowl one of the higher average teams tomorrow but they are struggling and are in about 7th or so.
    If some how you throw it with more speed on this inside line it will take longer for the ball to react to the friction, so it will hook later. It will still hook the same amount but since it went farther on the initial trajectory it will most likely miss the pocket.

    That was my thinking. I think just a little practice and getting comfortable with it is all I need. Even with the lower speed it still works but I'm still not consistent at hitting the pocket with it. Seems I hit the pocket about 25% of the time in the short amount of time I have done it. I'd say I have a total of maybe 10-15 shots trying this so still a ways to go.

    I had been running up the 7 board about 80% of my shots throughout the night but last week I'm not sure if I went out there at all so definitely getting more comfortable outside of my comfort zone...lol

    Tried it a few times tonight and couldn't get it to come back. Tried it with the Conspiracy too and same result. In the end I didn't need to use that line anyway but game 1 I struggle to find the line. Games 2 and 3 were good but played a straighter line
