  • Need a pattern for a phoenix model c for my league

    As the title says. Basically our league is terrible averages of 130-160 and not many of them hook or have any real revs other than me and my brother (yes I bowl in the league also)
    I'm the tech at the centre and we have an old phoenix model c from 2001.
    We currently use crossfire lane conditioner.
    Basically looking for a pattern that's pretty easy for the guys who have less revs and less movement on the ball but then would allow me and my brother and 1 or 2 more to play further left.
    Every week in getting moaned at the change the pattern so I tweak it a bit each week to see how they play but it's never any good because it's "far too oily"
    Any help or cheat sheets are welcomed thanks in advance.

    Hey man I'm using a model c as well but we use kegel curve oil on wood lanes here. I could give you our pattern info if you wanted to check it out. we are high scoring here at our center \. at least 25 guys are 200+ avg with myself on top at 226. let me know if you need a hand.

      Yeah, got an old Phoenix lane machine and use crossfire lane conditioner.
      We tried many different patterns. And all the customers moan about it sooner or later.
      Some even love the changes.
      Can't please everyone.

      The best thing we did for ourselves were to get new pins and make the machine go a little faster.
      It puts out less oil while keeping the same pattern.
      Maybe you should try changing the stripper??
      The old stripper use to give us lots of off spot pins.
      Started using the new one (I forget the names) and less off spot and pile ups.

      Good luck
