  • A22 oil VS Brunswick Absolute Control

    Like others here, I am always looking at different options for oil options for my lanes. I was looking through the Brunswick lane maintence catalog today and noticed how similar these two oils seem to be. How do they compare in the real world? I have rather worn wood lanes, U300 high solids finish that was put down back in August, Phoenix pad machine, Absolute Control oil, Defense C cleaner, 9 to 1 ratio. I am looking for something with a bit more resistance to breaking down. Most of the men bowlers here use the super soaker balls that pull the oil off of the lane by the start of the second game. I've tried slowing the machine down to get more oil out, cleaning and oil seperately, etc. Just wondering if the A22 would be a better option. Thanks in advance!!

    You would get a little more durability from the A22 oil.

        It works very well in a pad machine.

          When we used A-22 oil on our Brunswick Anvil lanes, 40%-50% humidity, 20C temp, A22 lane machine we had excessive carry down. Having much better luck with Brunswick Logic oil.

            Logic can NOT be used in a Pad machine due to the viscosity.

              Any other ideas on oil for my wood lanes that DESPERATELY need a resurface? Looking for more durability and I have an 8 pad Phoenix.

                Crossfire is another option.
