    Just like I use the reflections of the pins as an aiming device, you can use them to calibrate where the ball is when it begins to hook. Look for the start of the hook and don't worry about how far it is down the lane.

    and I think you're looking for "relative" versus "absolute" - you're no way going to be able to see the exact board 45' down the lane . . . but if you get "I'm at that reflection which is about 10 board-ish and the break point was a bit left of it. . ." then you can base yourself on that. Maybe the vertical hook point was CLOSER than that reflection vs farther away. . .

    Yeah - with 2 and a half seconds, you have to strategerize what you look at and remember. As we work on that, we can start to see more things.
