WTBA Beijing Pattern

The WTBA Beijing pattern is 35 feet long. This is the shortest oil pattern we will bowl on this summer. Generally, the shorter the oil pattern is, the farther outside (toward the gutter) your breakpoint will be. The ideal breakpoint for this pattern will be from the 1-5 board depending on your style. Bowlers that play more direct lines will need to play up the 3-5 board area to have their best ball reaction. Bowlers that hook the ball more will most likely have to swing the ball out to the 1-4 board area. This is a "have or have not" type of oil pattern. If you play the lane incorrectly, this pattern can look difficult. If you attack it properly, then you can score very high.
