  • 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,

    Not much more oil to put out.....I would try weakening my cleaner ratio SLIGHTLY...what cleaner and ratio?

      The pattern looks nice too....with the weather getting warmer...more will come out of a pad machine now

        My Ratio on the cleaner is 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.
