Gary, were you ever successful in any of your attempts?

Just the one.

IMHO I never throw hard at the 7-10 because the odds are I will hurt something more often than making the spare.

Making the 7-10 is mostly luck where making the 6-7-10 you have to make a good shot.

a bowler in my league made two 7-10 splits in the same game this year, a frame apart.  Not a hard thrower either.

Have seen more in the last few years than in the 50 years prior. 

Liver pins??

@Pullmyfinger I actually try the reverse on Brunswick machines. 7 pin on the left, 10 pin on the right, I usually get more pins that pop out and go to the side if I go that way. If I hit the ball return side, the pin just pops out and flies beyond the rake about 20-30 feet!

I came very close to making the 7-10 on an AMF 82-70 once...I hit the 10 as hard as I could and it bounced out halfway across the deck but in front of the 7.
