The problem is the title didn't look like a link, I couldn't tell it was a link until I gave up and started running the cursor across the page until I saw the link, but I found the patterns.

Games 1-4 is on a 41 foot pattern oiled to 32ft and buffed to 41 and should play from the 9 or 10 board at the break point, the pattern should break down quick, running the new cell straight up the 7 or 8 board in practice and dry out the outside a bit to help open up the shot, I don't know if you are moving pairs or not, I assume you are, so don't expect someone to open up the outside for you, but you never know. You will have to make quick transitions as there are only 40 units of oil and the shot will dry out pretty fast, so try to anticipate the moves before you need to, watch how the ball travels through the pins, if the ball is taking out the 9 pin you are alright, if the ball is driving through the 5 too hard it is probably time to make a move.

Games 5-8 will be on a 34ft pattern that will require you to hit the 3 board at the break point and will require you to use less side rotation to keep the ball off of the head pin, but should be pretty scorable as long as you keep your speed up and trust it. The pattern uses more oil than the long pattern and is oiled to 32 feet as well with only 2 ft of buff so the shot will be very abrupt transitioning from skid to hook to roll, this is why you need more end over end roll for this pattern and absolutely no grabbing the ball at the bottom of the swing, you don't even want to leave finger prints in the finger holes is how little you need to hit on the ball. Your adjustments will be to use more speed, by holding the ball higher. If you can not change your axis rotation you will need your urethane ball to try to control the jump off of the oil.

The next day games 9-12 will be on a 36 foot pattern that will play similar to the 34 ft pattern except you will need to hit the 5 board at the break point instead of the 3 board and you will not have to make adjustments as fast since they are using more oil which will make it even more important to stay behind the ball, you may not need as much speed as the 34ft pattern, but you will still not want to grab on the release, you need to be nice to it at the release, any jerkiness will create an abrupt reaction at the break point.

Day two games 13-16 will be on a 40ft pattern that will play similar to day one games 1-4 but with more oil so a stronger ball might be required for the first game until the shot starts to break down. The shot will play between the 8 and 9 board at the break point. You will need to watch your speed, too much and you will slide through the break point on this pattern, the heavier volume of oil will provide more carrydown. You are only bowling 4 games so you may not see much carrydown it will depend on how many people are on the lanes with you and ahead of you and what equipment they are using. If you have a ball that seems to be carrying and the break point seems to be getting farther down the lane, you will need to move your break point inside to a fresh part of the back end by moving your feet and target inside two boards each.

Your friends might have been using plastic because they rip on the ball and have too much side rotation, or the charts are all bs.
