ADAPTING TO LANE CONDITIONS




When on a blocked condition, locate where the oil is (usually from the 10th board to the 10th board) and play just inside of it and allow the ball to "drift" into the dry producing a strong backend reaction.

When on a spotty or reversed-block condition (dry inside and oil outside of the 10th board) try to play straighter. Ball selection is a key in conquering various lane conditions. For example, a urethane ball is preferrable for spotty conditions since it does not "overreact."
