Agreed--it's not as if there is only
but one technique that works.
Me--I move my Mii five (or six, depending on how "fine" I press the cursor pad) ticks to the right of center so that the aim line is just a hair to the left of the second tick from the right of center, hold the remote in my hand so that it is already in an angled position (i.e., the position my remote would be facing if I were to I twist my wrist during
the throwing motion--IOW, I am essentially putting spin on the ball before I even start my throwing motion), then release the ball at a specific release point that, when combined w/ everything else previously mentioned, will pretty much give me
strikes everytime. "Everytime", as in, "when I can do this consistently--which of course is easier said than done...but it definitely works for me 'cuz I've bowled two perfect games so far (and would have had a third had I not missed a pin on my 11th throw)...and probably would have a bunch of perfect games if I spend way more time on the Wii than I currently have so far.
Note--I'm not offering my method so as to say that it'll work for anybody...but to show that different folks have different techniques for getting strikes (almost) consistently.
