  • 7-10s

    I was just wondering about 7-10s and about which machines will allow better conditions on picking them up....I have only seen two to have been picked up..first on the 82-30s and this past sunday at the State on the 70s

    oh..Peanut...I rolled a 279 Sunday in doubles ..and ended up with only a 635 .... 9 in a row, 10 pin spare and a strike...gotta love it .. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img] ...

    It is easier to convert the 7-10 on a Brunswick machine. Slam that 10 into the raised part of the pit boars and the pin will bounce back up on the deck and across often.

      Brunswick A's. The pit cushions are straight up and down. They are angled down and back on A2's which tends to keep the pin down in the pit.

      82-70's(don't know about '30s). In the centers I've bowled in, the bounce plates are just that...BOUNCY!

        Re: 7-10s

        Slapping the pin down (when it hits the A-2/jetback style cushion) can make it jump off the pit board harder to get back on the deck. I've had at least 4 conversions in our house in the last 3 years, with only a single shift.

        An old-timer (my coach in juniors 27 years back :p ) once told me that with AMF machines, you should shoot the 7-10 on opposite corners, owing to the slight angling of the cushion plank to get the ball to the door, but damned if I remember which pin for which lane... I think it was shoot the 10 on the even lane, and the 7 on the odd... the AMF guys will sure have something to say about that:

          the one I saw the other day was on a 70
          he threw it hard and straight and hit the 7 knocking it up and to the right causing it to bounce off the "curtian" onto the 10 and out on the lane as dead wood.. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img] never woulda happened like that on an
 my opinion...I would think it would have to bounce off the pit board from the cushion...but then what would I know... [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

            I was at a PBA event in Seattle a few years ago and Eugene McCune left a 7-10....He wound up and rifled the ball at the 10...the 10 went straight back, looked like it hit the cushion mount (Brunswick A-2), popped straight out and smashed the flourescent tube into a million pieces all over about 3 lanes either side. They had to stop the tourney to clean it up...One of the funniest things I ever saw..

            You only need 2 tools...WD40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD40. If it moves and it should't, use the tape.

              When it comes to 7-10s, I think they can happen on either machines, if you know how to shoot at them. On AMF, shoot OPPOSITE of the ball exit, in another words, the 7 pin on the odd lane, and the 10 on the even lane. On Brunswick, shoot at the 10, if you are righthanded, and try to bounce it off the angle in the shaker board.

              Russ, I was bowling a few lanes over when Eugene broke the light fixture. I made the 7-10 during the same tournament. It was something about that center, Skyway Park Bowl, that caused the conversions.

              I agree, it was one of the funniest things I ever saw that happened while bowling. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

                I've picked it up once. Bruns A-2. Never tried on AMF.

                I hit the ten really hard, and bounced it otu of the corner, and back onto the lane. I've bounced the ten out several times, but this time the seven just happend to be there. I've also bounced the 7 out a couple of times.

                  Re: 7-10s

                  i think its easier to convert on an A/A2...then 82-70...82-30...GS

                  A's are easier cuz of the stiff cushion and shaker board. at a local center pinchasers always talked about putting bricks on the back of the cushion to help pin notaa bruns guy...only goin by what was said.

                  AMF's are a little harder cuz of the soon as a pin goes down...its only goin one way after hitting the carpet.

                  and worse is the GS...has a carpet and then that duckpin lookin rubber flap thing hangin down...nothin's gonna bounce off that

                    Re: 7-10s

                    At my center(32 A's and 16 A2's) I can boink the 7 outta there but only 1 10 pin ever. I've picked up the 7-10 ounce by drilling the 7 pin outta there. I've also taken the 7-10 out of the 4-6-7-10 twice by drilling the 7 pin.

                    I do agree on the GS machines. I've seen a 4 pin come out of the pit, but that's it. If you wanna pick the 7-10 up on a GS, you probably have to do this: Shoot the 7 pin on the even lane and the 10 pin on the odd lane. The ball door between the machines has a protrusion that you might be able to bounce the pin off of.

                      Re: 7-10s

                      I work and bowl in a centre that has 30's, and have picked up the 7-10 8 times, including twice in one night!!! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

                      I agree with the idea of shooting at the 7 on the odds, and the 10 on the evens.

                      The way I try and do it, is to drive the pin straight back, and get the ball to jam it against the cushion, driving it up and out.

                      Doing it this way, I have actually bounced the 10 out, into the 7, and knocked both pins up to the arrows [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img] NOW THAT'S COOL

                      Throwing the ball HARD is a main part of it.

                      Just gives me the s#!ts when you smash the pocket, and leave one in the first place!!!

                        What makes me feel s#it IS:
                        Having a womans league in the morning and (while having a bad time in the pit of another lane)getting a call to put a 7 (or 10) pin on the lane while the 10(or 7) is still standing...These are the times I want to look for another job!

                        So it goes.

                          anyone ever picked the 7-10 off a full rack? i did and it made me $50 richer. i was playing around one night and the curtain got pushed back(a-2) and i was bouncing pins out left and right. so i was trying to get the 7-10 off the full rack and one of the bowlers that i knew asked me what i was doing. so the conversation goes a little like this.
                          bowler: that's impossible.
                          me: no it's not
                          bowler: i'd pay to see someone do that.
                          me:how much would you pay?
                          bowler: fifty bucks.
                          me: how many tries do i get?
                          bowler: five tries.
                          me: ok.
                 ball later i'm putting $50 in my pocket [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

                            I had a machine lose the curtain bracket off the pit cushion. Put on a good show, upset the porter. He went back there and rigged a bracket on there and threw a big fit about.

                            Good way to pick up chics though...
