  • Kustodian+ maachine question

    I have a k+ machine and i noticed that on the forward run it puts very little oil down on the outside of the pattern, and more on the reverse run. This seems to be causing the ball to wiggle if you get it wide and can't recover. Is this normal for this machine? I do not have the reverse drop brush on my machine.

          Thanks King, I don't have RBD but i will try and let u know.

            Well King I put out your pattern and bowled. I liked it but I had a little too much back end so I extended it to buff out to 42'. I then shot 815 with a 299. The next question is will it hold up in a 5 man league. I will let u know after the Wednesday and Thursday leagues bowl on it. If any suggestions before then I'll take them. Thanks again.

              Well King, I used your pattern last night for our 5 man league and had 1 guy shoot 300, another shot 792, lots of 250+
              games. They seemed to start hooking some the 3rd game but not too uncontrollable. I think if I leave out for a while they might adjust and learn to move the 3rd game. Thanks again for the help.

                Agree...if you put too much oil out...then the oil carries down.....bowlers should move left some for max scoring.....if you over oil the middle of the lane you can never carry when you miss your mark inside
