"training is getting better - on Sunday,I became Croatian Champion in the mix doubles with an average 180 in qualifying rounds, 204 in the semifinals & finals 214.I was soooooo happy that day.....work pays off!," writes Croatian bowler Daniela Funda, who attended my camp in December in Zagreb as well as did a 2-day lesson and fit change Feb 16 & 17 2013.  She was averaging 165 at the time.

I prepared a chart of the viscosity (cps) values for the most common lane oils.  This is not exhaustive but will give you a sense of the variation.  And, as you can imagine, this will impact your ball reaction.  Lower viscosity oils will cause more skill while high viscosity lane conditiones are more durable.  But, most importantly, with higher viscocity oils there is more resistance. Consequently, the ball will slow down faster and hook sooner than a lower viscosity oil.  Our sport is complex and most be considered a sport.

Special Note:  In 1997, Kegel conducted research on the impact of temperature on viscosity of lane oil.  In some cases, the viscosity (cps) changed by 2 cps for every 1 degree change in temperature.  Increases in temperature will decrease the viscosity.  In the same study, some lane oils only change 1 cps for every degree change.  Clearly, the viscosity will increase with temperature decreases while decreasing with temperature increases.
