  • Pattern Tweaking to much break down

    I have wood lanes, a Phoenix pad machine, defense-c cleaner, and prodigy oil. I have a lot of bowlers expressing that my pattern is breaking down very quickly. I can tell that because my typical house bowler has a good first game, a lower second game and then a better third game after they really put extra speed on the ball.
    This is my pattern........any help would be appreciated.

    I lay the pattern down simultaneous
    spray on time is 4 tenths
    spray off time is 12 tenths
    last spray 45'

    Oil Pattern length 43'
    forward 2nd speed 10'
    forward high speed 43'

    Return 2nd speed 43'
    return speed low 10'

    I have pads config is 7-3-5-5-5-5-3-7
    both the right and left is the exact lengths
    1-5 40"
    5-10 96"
    10-15 32'
    15-20 35'

    Reverse oil
    1-5 0
    5-10 108"
    10-15 35'
    15-20 37'

    Like I said any help would be apprecaited,
    Tina

        My Ratio on the cleaner is 6:1....so I think I am going to try and dilute a little more. Thanks for the suggestion. Didn't even think of that....I was thinking more oil.

          Try 8-1

          I would not go weaker than that

            I went 8:1 and we saw 3 consecutive games. Thanks so much. I didn't even think of the cleaner.
