Greetings, I've been bowling for about 2.5 years now and have gotten a wrist

Subject: Need Advice on Spare Shooting
positioner (Robby Revs right handed) a few months back. My average in the
league so far is 137 which I'm hoping to improve on. The wrist attachment
definitely helps me with throwing my strike shot. Not that I get a lot of
strikes, but I usually have a pin or two left over. The problem is, even if
it's a single pin or a simple two pin conversion, I'm not that confident
about making these shots, hence the low average. I've watched better
bowlers use either plastic balls or their reactive ball to make such
conversions. Of course these folks have been bowling a considerable number
of years more than me and carry averages in the 180 range.
My question to you folks is, what's the best way to make these conversions?
Do I use a plastic ball and throw it the same way as my strike ball and hope
it doesn't bend? Or, do I stick with the strike ball and move right/left
according to whatever pin(s) is/are standing and factor in that the ball
will hook instead of going straight (aim to the right of the pin)? Or, do I
have to use more speed with the plastic ball so it doesn't get any (or
little) chance of bending?
Prior to the wrist support, I was throwing my spare (plastic) ball with my
palm towards the pins (6 o' clock position).. With the support, my palm is
more at a 4 o'clock position now.
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated thanks. By the way, there
is no pro shop here. Just the bowling alley that can order in merchandise
if you need anything.
