This is great!
And wow he slid it over no bounce out of the pit,very very rare. Just an absolute perfect shot. Congrats Sean!
And they say it’s physically impossible to slide the pin over. I guess you could bounce the ball out of the gutter, but that’s probably illegal.
That’s my reaction too. I literally said aloud “how did that pin stay on the deck?!”. Incredible. And, you’re right @Mitjitsu, if a ball bounces out of the pit, any pins it knocks down do not count (USBC rule 6b). So, the strategy (using that word generously), it to throw the ball as hard as possible at the 7 or the 10 pin. It’s not infrequent to see pins bounce back on the deck, and even sometimes beyond the sweep, with well-placed, powerful throws of 22 mph+.
Hardest way possible too lol.
I’ve done it twice, both times the exact same way.
It’s way easier if a couple of extra pins are stuck in the pit and a loose curtain at the same time, that would be a bonus for help.
@VinylToVideo if you told me that prior to me seeing this video , i would claim no way, both right handed at the 10 ?
@Berry McGregor I believe so.. once was when I was still a kid but the other time was maybe around 2016 or 2017.
Haha nice, reminds me of when osku made it during the 2011 toc qualifying
To think you could make a 7-10 by just scraping the 10 and tickling the 7…who’s his workout trainer!?
I cant even do it by bouncing the damm 7 pin out without it comei g 35 feet back up the lane 🤣
Wow. Can’t say I’ve ever seen it made like THAT.
Didn’t even know you could pick the 7-10 split without bouncing one of the pins out
GD_NerdyHalfAsian Me neither
Yeah I thought you need to hit the exact spot if you wanted to get even close to hitting the pin without bouncing
Only way I’ve ever done it.
I have NEVER seen or thought of it being picked up that way. I know him, Tommy Jones and all the rest of those guys who throw it 20+ mph pick them up all the time just about.
Done it twice this way. Never even considered the other way of hoping for a pin to bounce.
Sean Rash hugging Wes Malott was so funny
That might be the only non-lucky 7-10 I’ve ever seen. No lucky bounce, just a perfect shot.
Not every bounce conversion is sheer luck (I mean they know where to hit it to get it to bounce right) but I see what you mean. This is definitely more impressive
@Neil Hatrick Harris That would require knowing the make and model of the pit. On newer models getting a bounce out is much more difficult.
@Mitjitsu on newer models its harder to get a bounce out, yes. but you still try to hit the pin (if its the 10 pin) 45 degrees on the left side, it kicks it into the pit and just hope for a bounce. doesnt matter the make or model of it, its hit the same way.
I gotta pick up the 7-10 split using Sean’s approach.
That might be the most amazing shot ever made in the history of bowling and the announcers either weren’t watching closely enough to notice what happened or didn’t know what they saw was truly the holy grail or unicorn of the sport. What an amazing shot to make it natural.
I had no idea it was even possible to do that.
Wes Mallott is like”Yeah Yeah now get off me” Still impressive tho.
Simply amazing to see it converted like that.
Physics: Ight imma head out
7-10 split converted the impossible way.
0:13 Very impressive strike over at Lane 21. 😉
Wes Malott had the same reaction that I would’ve had if I was there
Just get the hell off of me
First real 7-10 conversion I’ve seen. All others conversions I’ve seen…the pin bounces back out, then converts.
