I was there in mid-March. The D/S pattern hooks a lot from the track and in. I started in the track, and had to move quite a bit in to get lined up from that point. I had two lackluster games from that area before I jumped way out and played straight up where I found a very forgiving shot, and finished with 820 for my last four games.

I think when it comes to breaking in the shot, on that pattern, you have two options.

You can start with a lot of surface and dry up the outside like you would in years past. If you do, be prepared to make a BIG move in when its time to move since the inside already hooks so much.

Or, you can start with a lightly surfaced or shiny ball and camp out for a long time. The ice oil didn't break down enough for me using a shiny ball to need to do anything more than make micro-adjustments.
Nowadays, I open bowl practice and go to Nationals every year.
