    Randy Pedersen of Storm Bowling Products discusses how to bowl on a dry oil pattern.

    Randy Pedersen: Hi, everybody. I am Randy Pederson for Storm Bowling products. Today we are going to talk about dry oil patterns.

    What is a dry oil pattern? Well, it's simple it's an oil pattern that doesn't have a lot of oil on it. So you are probably wondering, well, what's the best way to attach this oil pattern and maximize scores.

    The first thing I want you to do is increase your ball speed. We don't want the bowling ball hooking early and the best way to keep it from doing that is by throwing it faster. The ball stores energy longer as it comes off the pattern it's going to have much more pop as it goes through the pins.

    What's the best equipment to use on a dry oil pattern? Well, it's simple you want to make sure that you are not using aggressive equipment. Aggressive equipment is going to grab that dry lane surface too early. We want to use polished bowling balls and nonaggressive bowling balls. That way the bowling ball is going to retain energy as long as possible, come off at the end of the pattern, and strike a lot of pop through the pins.

    So there you have it. Use these great tips the next time you face a really dry oil pattern.
