  • I think its time to change conditioner.

    I've been using Brunswicks' Absolute Control lane conditioner since 2005. With the advancement in coverstocks and the amount of bowlers using reactive resin balls I believe it's time to change. We are a very large (68 lanes), very busy (50+ games per bed) center and I'm looking for something that will hold up. We have a Kegel Sanction Elite so we can run anything. We strip and oil every morning and throw in a 10-10 cover shot in the afternoon. I would like to hear from someone that is using one of the newer brunswick or kegel conditioners. What do you like about the conditioner you are using. Why did you move away from your former conditioner. What pattern do you use and what kind of cleaner and cleaner ratio you use to get it stripped off.
    Thanks ahead of time for your responses.

    If you want the condition to hold up for night leagues - run your 10-10 fill in the morning - get the lane clean and build a pattern for your night leagues

    I have used Kegel Infinity on a hooking surface - it has great durability for your HPL lane surface

      because of the amount of business we have in the afternoon before leagues plus size of center it would take me over 3 hours to strip and oil in afternoon due to stopping pinsetter lowering bumpers etc. So unfortunately it is a necessary evil to strip and oil in am then run a fill in shot for evening league. What would you suggest for a fill in pattern with the infinity oil?

        Send a PM to J Bing for a fill pattern - I have never done it

          On your machine can you "oil only" without the lino-duster? Since I updated to the latest software I no longer have that option. If your pad is still wet when you run the lanes you could mess the pattern up. I used to run a fill in pattern once in a while but now I don't cause I can't run them with a wet pad. Maybe you don't have the pad on your duster roller.
