    Oil distance is 39', Reverse drop brush 35',Reverse oil 33', 50uL total oil 18.45 ml

      Forgive my inquisitiveness! Pin-head: what do you mean by "the bowlers can't handle oil in the heads?"

        That\'s ok Popeye, we used to run easy street, but Terry from Kegel and Graeme Rose from Cybernetic were at my centre last year and were saying after looking with microscope that with all the reactive balls easy street was chewing up the 8-10 board area up to the arrows, so we added a 2-2 on the reverse and changed the forward 10-10 to a 8-8 and now they say there is "too much oil" simply because they are not bowling telephone numbers anymore. When I watch the "higher average" bowlers 215+ they bowl fine and have good back end reaction, trouble is most want to see gutter to gutter swing....

          Hey Pin_head,
          The pattern King gave you is a good pattern. I don't know if you want to make such a drastic change all at once. This has way less oil on the outsides which will give you the more outside reaction. It has more oil in the aprox. 10-10 area and maybe more oil at the end of travel. If you think your pattern has any redeeming value then I would just make subtle changes to what you already have. Try removing one of your forward 2-2's, change the rbd to 32. make sure to compensate the reverse loads with the new rbd distance. Maybe add an 8-8 on the reverse. A good rule to follow for making changes is let your bowlers see the same thing for at least 2-3 weeks. Sometimes the best thing you can do is try to maintain consistency and let your bowlers learn. BTW What oil unit rule do you have to comply with?

            With a walker...his pattern has flooded the outside...and there are no scores....my pattern has plenty of outside oil.

            Make the change now and keep bowlers happy.

                18.00 ml is for 45ul.
                I got it fixed--too bad it wasn't what I was trying to fix.

                          If you deem the lanes to be good....and they do not dry up too quick - do not touch the pattern for at least 2 weeks....and then we will re-evaluate
