What I inherited was ball hooks to cable end snap and the release also hooked to cable end snap. Now release packaging shows release hooked to snap and ball hooked to bottom release hook.

Is this why I’ve not been able to get good fish on releases? So I end up dragging hooked fish around until I retrieve the ball and check the equip?

Those are Black's releases and def one of the best releases out there. The small screw on the side is to adjust tension, if you're dragging fish around loosen up that screw and it will take less pressure to pop the release. Line twist is important too, I usually do 7 or so twists and then put it in the release. If you don't do enough twists you will not be able to preload the rod as line will just keep slipping through the release.
