    Had good scores on it this year. Would you leave it alone and just add the RDB at say 36 feet? Or should we totally change it? Does the RDB load up the midlanes and the head like it says it's suppose to?The main issue with the above pattern is the midlanes will burn up and you can get a hang spot down lane when you bowl certain teams but I'm think the RDB fixes those issues.

    You need 3 feet between the RBD and actual oil applied distance

    I would keep the pattern the same and put my RBD at 37'

    There will be more hook

    RBD does not load up any area - it keeps the end of the buff area from getting the oil dumped there - when you bring it closer to the foul line - it will give you more hook

      Why 3 feet is that something that you came up with using the RBD?

        It takes the buffer that long to get down to the lane - otherwise you will be applying oil and it will be slinging it where the buffer hits

          So a wider pattern would be better to keep the midlane and heads from breaking down to quickly? Since your not going to blow up the end of you pattern.

            No - a heavier oil would give more longevity - what oil are you using?

            The RBD does not help in oil lasting longer at the end - it aids in a large amount of oil not being put down at the end of the pattern

              Infinity

              That is what I was saying a wider pattern would help not breakdown and you can get away with it cause the RBD isnt going to kill the end of you pattern. Do you have any suggestion on what would help it hold up longer.

                Have you bowled a 5 man team on the pattern yet to determine if it is not durable?

                I will need info like where you started playing...and where you ended up........

                Where are the straight guys playing ...and moving to.....and the hook guys

                You ultimately want to a place they "stop"

                By looking at you pattern there is not a place they stop

                Lanes will break down...but try this....see what I altered to have the bowlers stop in a certain spot?

                  The straight players didnt have a great look. The guys that hooked the lane was in a much better place. I would start at 12 and be in to 17 by the end of the night. The track area just burns up and you could get midlane read depending on the team you were bowling. It is "somewhat" durable we have had 10 300's on it and 6 800's on it for the year I know not great but it seem to matter what team you were bowling against if it burned out or would maybe create a hang spot down lane with some teams. I'm not against totally redoing it with the new machine coming tuesday. So if you had something in mind with an RDB for a high friction surface I would start over if you would be willing to work with me.
