Why It’s Almost Impossible to Make a 7-10 Split in Bowling | WIRED

The dreaded 7-10 split is by many accounts the toughest shot in bowling. WIRED's Robbie Gonzalez went to the U.S. Bowling Congress to meet a pro bowler, an engineer, and a robot named Earl, to find out why it's actually Almost Impossible.

    My dad once had a 7-10 and he threw it as hard as he could and the ball went in the gutter right before hitting the 10 pin. So much spin on the ball it made the ball come out the gutter and hit the 10 pin and kept going and hit the 7 pin. Hit both pins with the ball. Didnt count. But it was insane

    really in theory, you can pick up the 7-10 more consistently if you can hit the inside angle as close to 90* as possible. this can bounce the pin off the FRAME of the lane, instead of the curtain. making the gutter your only obstacle on the rebound. i picked up my 7-10 while playing at a birthday party with that lucky shot
