Break Point

By

Definition: The point on the lane at which the ball picks up friction and hooks toward the pins. In the simplest of terms, it's the point on the lane past which there is no oil.
Examples:
Richard thought he would have no problem in a sport league until he realized the break points of each animal-themed pattern were different.
