  • No Reverse Buffer Drop On HPLs

    King, a while back there was a post where it was recommended to not use reverse buffer drop on HPLs and just have buffer drop at end of forward buff distance. Was just wondering why this was recommended.

    Hpl hooks more than most other lane surfaces.

    I would not agree with not using RBD.

    If I were oiling 42 feet for example i would probably drop at 39' or 38' to hold the balls off.

    Again.....if you are oiling in reverse starting at 33'....the minimum drop is 3 feet...that would be 36'

      Thanks. Cleared things up for me. Was holding off on installing reverse buffer drop upgrade until I cleared up this question.


      • #4 is a worthy upgrade
