Response Time Scales
Lane Conditioner Response Time Scale
Brunswick has a full line of lane conditioners to match up with any lane surface. The line ranges from fast to slow response times. A fast response or “hooking” lane conditioner allows the bowling ball to lose more speed within the oil pattern creating greater hook. A slow response or “slippery” lane conditioner causes the bowling ball to lose less speed in the oil pattern and is recommended for fast response lane surfaces.
Lane Surface Response Time Scale
There are a variety of lane surfaces on the market today. The lane surface response time scale shows the differences between the surfaces and the amount of potential friction the bowling ball will encounter. A bowling ball will see friction much sooner on a fast response lane surface opposed to a slow response lane surface. However, environmental variables can affect the overall response time of any surface in a given bowling center.
