  • Lane Oil Questions

    I am in the thought process of changing lane oil over the summer months. We currently use Syn Pro 40, along with Defence C cleaner.
    A Phoenix lane machine with sanction technology.
    Lanes are HPL'S.
    Our house shot is great. Scores are fantastic.
    The reason for our possible change is this;
    Near the begining of this season we started to notice our lane conditioner sticking and clinging to everything. Almost to a slim feeling at times. We thought they may have changed the chemical somewhat but they assured me they did not.We clean carpets, belts, and dist. belts every Tuesday, but we can't keep up.
    Is anyone else having the same problem with the same product??
    What is your opinions for lane conditioners for my application?

    Thank you very much for your time and help.

    In my opinion:
    I would be looking to switch to Kegel Navigate
    I feel that Prodigy would not hold up on HPL and Infinity could be kind of slimy like Syn Pro


    You pattern would probably need tweaked with any conditioner change

      Thank you for your opinion 8270KING.
      I will give that some serious thought. I will use Syn Pro to finish out my season and start with something different for the summer.
      Will give us plenty of time to work out the kinks.

      Would the slimy feeling just be a characteristic of the oil?
      We did not notice it until this season. Never had the problems and calls last year compaired to this one.

        Oil is oil....but if it migrates to turn pans...etc....or leaves ball slimy....that is the issue

          I've switched a number of centers from SynPro 40 to Logic, with no pattern changes. We did Adjust cleaner ratio since Logic cleans much easier. Some centers we adjusted the pattern to reduce volume since we didn't need that much for hold or durability
          Conditioner: Pantene Pro-V Brunette Expressions with Color Enhancer
          Cleaner: Fabuloso Spring Fresh with Bleach Alternative
          Cloth: ShamWow!
          Machine: Johnny 5
          Surface: Melamine-impregnated, phenolic-treated, high pressure pressed craft paper

            A 60/40 mix of baby oil/mineral spirits works perfect.

              I have been using infinity for quite some time, On pro anvil lane and does not feel anywhere near as slimy as syn pro 40 did when i used that for a short time...
              DO A NEAT CLEAN JOB, AND FIX IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. THE ONLY WAY TO WORK.

                Syn-pro is sticky and hard to clean but, this has been the worst yr. ever for warm and damp. We had Oct. weather for almost 5 months. I feel the furnaces take the humidity out and you don't see as much build up. (normally once a week cleaning would be enough)

                  You have to ask yourself why use oil that is hard to get off the lane.

                    King, I only demoed SynPro the summer we got out SPL's, It was the yr. that they had a bad batch. It had a chemical smell so bad I had a head ache for a week and a half, then i pitched it. Before that our area up here all had good success on Prolane but after it was bad and most changed to something else.
