  • Need a New Pattern

    I am looking for a brand new pattern for my house shot. The league bowlers here have been trained to play between 7 and 10 and don't like to move left and continue to burn it up. This place is also a 10 pin haven. Here are the details of the house:

    20 yr old AMF HPL lanes
    10 Yr old Kegel Kustodian w/transfer roller
    Tech Line Duramax Synergy 40 Vis Oil
    Oxyshock Cleaner at 10 to 1
    Pump setting 40

    I'm not looking to tweak any of my patterns. I'm looking to start from scratch and adjust it from then on.
    Let me know what else you need. Thanks

    50 mic stream - necessary to get volume and taper for your surface
    22.2 ml volume
    2-2 2 14
    7-7 1 14
    9-9 2 14
    10-10 3 14
    11-11 3 18
    12-12 3 18
    2-2 0 22 28-41'

    2-2 0 41-27'
    12-12 2 22
    10-10 2 18
    8-8 2 2 18
    2-2 0 18 10-0'

    My guess is you are leaving 10 pins with the 40 pump setting.....because you will need to oil 30+ feet to get enough volume out unless you run the machine real slow....this leads to poor lengthwise taper

    Try this and let me know.....thanks for posting in the forum so we all can learn

      Pump set to 50........pattern loaded and ready for tonite.......bad back today didn't let me try it but I had someone throw on it and it looked good.....see how it transitions and holds up for 2 shifts....Thanks King....I'll keep ya posted.

        Thanks....this is pretty a pretty solid program....but if we need more longevity or the track hooks to much we can make it better

          How did it play tonight?


          • #6
            Seemed to push everyone farther right than they normally play and had a little hang spot outside of the track area. The 2nd game they started breaking down and these guys don't move fast enough. I had to leave after the middle of the second game so I'm not sure what happened after that. I'll bowl Mon and Tues on them and see what happens.

     said the wanted to play 10....

              Let me know if you need a tweak

                I changed this........

                2-2 2 14
                7-7 1 14


                2-2 1 14
                7-7 2 14

                and it seemed to open up the outside more...let me know what you think
                I have mostly mixed league bowlers here so not many bowlers who can light them up. But scores were higher last night.

                  If that does the trick I am ok with it!

                    Now I have a brand new Ion for 2 weeks while my old Kustodian gets upgraded........using Navigate and Defence C at 6 to 1....what you think now? I bowled Tues night in 9pm league with a cut finger and a sore back and shot 762.

                      Good deal!


                      • #12
                        Hello again.....Here's an update....My Kustodian has been updated to a transfer brush and I am now using Kegel Navigate Oil and Defence-C cleaner at 6 to 1. Would you have adjusted the pattern based on the change of the oil and cleaner? Or should I use the Infinity which is recommended for the HPL's. They seem to hook overall more now since the changes.

                          Are the lanes hooking too much?
