- Fill ball; fill frame
Final 10th-frame shot which adds ten or less pins.
- Finger grips
Inserts which can be placed into the finger and/or thumb holes
to allow the bowler to both hang onto the ball better and impart
spin at delivery.
Type of bowling ball grip where the fingers are far enough from
the thumb that they can only be inserted into the ball as deep

but requires a strong wrist and much practice to master.

Any split where itıs possible for the ball to hit both pins.
Five strikes in a row.

to your clumsiness. Crossing it gets you a count of zero for that
ball and, if on the first ball, a shot at a new rack of pins.
A strike in the ninth frame; base for three possible strikes in
the tenth frame.
Four strikes in a row.
- Four-step line
Usually a row of dots closest to the foul line; the dots further
back are for five-step deliveries.

ball, done on purpose to cut down the hook.
