How PBA tweener players (250-350 rev rate) attack Scorpion

Where to play: Most players agree that the best starting point is in the track
area between the second and third arrows.
Adjusting to carry down: About half of the right-handers either switch to a
more aggressive ball and move deeper on the lane, while the other half prefers
to use the same ball or a weaker ball and move further outside on the lane. Lefthanders
tend to move further out and either throw the same ball or change to
one that’s more aggressive.
Adjusting to lane break down: A large majority of tweeners change to weaker
balls and move deeper on the lane.

How PBA power players (350 rev rate or more) attack Scorpion:

area or deeper (i.e. near the third arrow). Power players like this pattern
because it tends to play well from a deep inside angle.
Adjusting to carry down: About half of power players switch to a more
aggressive ball and move deeper on the lane, while the other half use the same
ball or a weaker ball and move further out on the lane.
Adjusting to lane break down: Most power players move deeper on the lane
with a weaker ball.
