Why We Leave the 10 Pin in Bowling  

 

The 10 pin in bowling - why we leave the 10 pin in bowling  

First there are 2 different types of 10 pins. One is the flat 10 or weak 10 pin. The other is the wrap 10 or the ringing 10 pin.

1.  The Flat 10 Pin - The first type of 10 pin in bowling is the flat or weak 10 pin.  This is when the bowling ball comes weak into the pocket, and has a loss of energy.  There are two reasons why this happens.  Either the ball has never gone into a roll or the ball has rolled too early and lost all of its energy before it gets to the pocket.  So you must recognize two things. One being which type of 10 pin you are leaving.  The other is the bowling ball rolling too early or not rolling early enough.  To tell if you are leaving the flat 10 pin or weak 10 look at the 6 pin. If the 6 pin is laying in the gutter or flat gutter and you are leaving the 10 pin it indicates a weak or flat 10 pin.  If you are leaving the flat 10 pin you need more angle or a ball that angles later and sharper.  You can do this with a change in bowling ball surface, hand position, type of ball, or bowling ball layout, or change in ball speed.  If the bowling ball is rolling too early you need to roll it harder.  If it is skidding or not going into its roll you may need less ball speed.

2.  The Wrap 10 Pin - Now the second type of 10 pin in bowling is the rap 10 or in other words the ringing 10 pin. This is when the ball comes in the pocket with too much angle or comes in the pocket too fast. The bowling ball does not have enough end over end roll.  If the 6 pin goes around the 10 pin quickly then you are leaving a wrap 10.  Another cause of this is if you are rolling the ball to hard.  If you are leaving the wrap 10 you normally need earlier roll or more end over end roll. You can do this with a change in bowling ball surface, hand position, slowing your ball speed down, or type of ball or bowling ball layout.

 

A Basic Rule of Thumb.  

1.  If the 6 pin is lying in the flat gutter or goes around the 10 pin slow it is a flat 10 pin.
2.  If the 6 pin goes around the 10 pin very fast it is a wrap 10 pin or ringing 10 pin.

Let the 6 pin be your guide in recognizing your adjustment.

Note: Learning to recognize the type of 10 you are leaving.
Then learning how to adjust is the key to increasing pin carry and a higher scoring potential will occur in return.
