Up the back layout
« on: February 11, 2008, 02:01:45 AM »
I need layout ideas for an up the back release. If I intend to do better on tougher patterns I think I need this option in the bag. Tried an up the back last night at the end of the set. Seemed to work pretty well, 2 strikes and a ten pin. Ball was a Fury at 500 surface, pin to pap of 5", pin 2" above ring finger, and mb 3" from thumb. The ball moved about 4 boards just before the pocket. I'm wondering if anybody has a favorite layout they use with this type of release?
So many questions, so little time but I'm having fun.

Most have the cg farther away than the pin!

The up the back release supplies a lot of midlane.....this drilling takes it our to give more length.


Open the door...see what's possible...and just walk right on through...that's how easy success feels..
