How can you pick up a 5-7-10 split?

First Response:

Use two balls! {laughing out loud}

Second Response:
This is one of the more difficult splits to pick up. I stand slightly left of my strike shot setup. Aim for right side of the 5 pin. The goal is to shoot the against the wall and deflect it into the 7 pin so that the 7 pins shoots towards the 10 pin.

Another common method is for people who use plastic balls for their 10 pin shots. Stand left (though not quite as left as one would for the 10 pin only) and throw a straight balling aiming to the right of the 5 pin. The goal is for the 5 to take out the 7 and your ball to deflect into the 10 pin. Many people feel this is more difficult to pick off than the 7-10 pin split.
