I know lane conditions make a difference. I am about 20 pins lower in avg. I would like improve sport shot avg. I guess practice makes perfect. Do you recommend a drilling layout for a sport shot.

Answer
Clayton,
Control drillings work better on flat patterns. The dramatic difference in the drill angles on your ball make it fine for house shots, but it would be typically too violent on more demanding patterns. The stronger the ball, the more speed you need on flat patterns. Your slower ball speed would best be served with straighter angles, moderate balls and less violent VAL angles in the drilling.

Thanks for your question. It would be best with more info but you should have a sense of options if you drill stuff for sport patterns.
