If the pattern plays as expected, below would be my strategy. I would start around 10 at the arrows and move in as the lanes transition. A ball with smoother reaction to friction will help battle the over/under likely with the sharp drop in oil outside of 8 board. If you keep the ball between 8 and 12 board you should maximize your mistake area. There will likely be some high scores, so carry will be important. Above all, trust your ball reaction, and make your moves with confidence. Good luck!

You don't want to play across the center oil as your ball will slide OOB, especially with a pearl cover. I'd use a solid ball cover for smoother transition as another snappier ball would probably not come back.

You need to maintain consistency and minimize the entry angle. Anything more then 5 1/2 degrees would be iffy and probably leave some nasty spares or splits.

As a result, I'd play 14 at the arrows and 10 at the breakpoint back to the pocket, knowing my rev rate and ball speed. Too fast will sail as there is little friction. but, a strong finishing arc is what you want, no snap.

This is a pattern where ball selection is key.

I'd also be concerned on cross alley spares. Left side spares will find the ball turning a lot, while right side spares could find the ball actually back up through the oil. Being righty, I'd fear chopping multiple pin spares like a left side bucket as the ball gains friction on the back. And, you could easily fly past a 10 pin with a plastic.

Be aware that tweeners and power players routinely generate entry angles over 6 degrees, which is generally considered to be the optimal entry angle. I am not aware of any condition where it is beneficial to set a goal less than 6 degrees. But, the best practical suggestion is to always watch the ball exit the lane. If it is between the 8 and 9 pin, I would say that is perfect. If the ball deflects too much, try moving further outside. If the ball drives too hard, try moving further inside. Or, try adjusting your axis rotation.

I was curious about playing 14 at the arrows to 10 at the breakpoint on the Stone Street pattern. So, I modified my simulation above to change the target line. See the results below. Crossing the heavier volume of oil, the issue becomes getting the ball into a roll. Notice the rolling transition distance becomes 61 feet. The ideal is around 57.5 feet, that is, a couple feet before it hits the pins. In the simulation, I already used a strong ball (Hammer First Blood) drilled strong (leverage/differential layout). I would further have to sand it to 1000 grit or rougher to get it into a roll before 60 feet. That's not what I would recommend when the pattern offers free hook outside, but other variables might provide different results for different bowlers.
