Advanced players often use the lane boards themselves to line up shots that require them to aim between arrows. However, in parts of Asia, the "spinner", "helicopter" or "UFO" release is more common. A ball spinning about a generally vertical axis of rotation spins like a top down the lane, and slides straighter, regardless of oil pattern.
The timing between the feet and the ball being delivered is only a fraction of a second. Strokers often keep their shoulders square to the foul line and their backswing generally does not go much above parallel to the ground.
