  • So, About the burn pair....

    So, I have been going through all of my recaps sheets from last year and it has become pretty clear that 1 and 2 (the night guy that runs the lanes had been just doing 1 and 2 twice every night without my knowledge ) had more high scores than any other pair in the house (16 lanes). So I was wondering what this means ? Is this due to the back end getting double cleaned ? Cleaner ratio ? Or, could it be that my oil volume (or pattern) has a hair too much and the buffer not being loaded ? Just kinda curious cause I this burn pair topic has become rather popular.

    It's always good to burn a pair but not the same pair every day.

      Since you have intelligently listed your cleaning ratio...my guess is 8-1 is too weak

      I would change to 6-1

      And PH is correct.....you do not want to burn the same pair every day

      With that being said - over 40% of our scores came on one pair

      My guess is it is a combination of the cleaner being too weak...and the topography on 1/2 being the best for high scoring

        I had instructed this employee long long ago to 1&2 first then the next day start on 3&4 then 5&6 and so on..... But this did not happen. Thanks PJ and King. Oh by the way king I really didnt wanna touch the pattern (you gave me ) I ended up last year at 229 after your help !!! And I will start 6:1 for a few weeks and see what happens.

          Now remember.....in the summer when there is less play....if the lanes will hook more because there is less dirt and carrydown to clean.....

          I would test out the stronger mix when you have summer league...and see how the lanes react....

          Let us know!

            When you first start running lanes don't run the same pair twice in a row. Start on a different pair every day & run a few pairs & then go back to the first pair you ran. ( example) If you start on 5&6 go to 1&2, 3&4, then do 5&6 agian and keep on going. Hope this helps!

                With an Ion - no cord - you can burn any pair and go to 1/2

                Monday do 3/4 then 1-20
                Tuesday do 5/6 then 1-20
                Wednesday do 7/8 then 1-20
                Thursday do 17/18 then 20-1

                The object is to rotate the burn pair if possible and not make it the end pairs

                You only want to double strip and oil one pair

                  tracyboy. I'm with you! I had a PBA sport league next to a hose pattern league last summer. The first pair of house pattern after the sport pattern wasn't exactly perfect, nor was the first pair of sport condition, the burn pair. I would suggest to anybody that wants to maintain the most exacting standards in lane consistency to do two pairs, not just one.

                      I understand that you can not have the Walker automatically burn lanes...is that true?

                        You can. I don't know about the sport version, but for the non-sport it's the first pair of the run.

                          Kanga is correct....I have a couple days I will run 4-1 then start the machine machine on 3 and go across

                            We burn 2 lanes a day cause we have the old phoneix 8 wick. helps the wick absorb the oil and get going evenly. we run a 6-1 cleaner and it cleans the backside and the pin decks really good. use a little more cleaner but the oil holds awesome and with brunswick connect it really helps.
