How many games to get a good track on new ball

Just bought a new ball and wanted to know about when I should expect to get a good track on it on average. I have only had one other new ball ever and that was 18 years ago. I know it depends on oil on lanes, etc but on average. First few games on it and it is not moving at all. Thanks.

Re: How many games to get food track on new ball

...what type of ball? what kind of lanes are you bowling on?

In today's game, it is important the cover stock match up with the playing surface. A ball that is too porous for the oil condition could go straight. We have also found, a track in today's equipment will make the ball react inconsistently.

Roto Grip Dare Devil Danger recommended by the local pro shop guy that's also a USBC instructor. THS during league, not sure what lanes are made of. Think synthetic but could be wood. I am very much a stroker with low revs and axis tilt.

Bowled in league last night and the ball seemed to start coming back the third game, which would be game 7 on it.

Re: How many games to get food track on new ball

If the ball started to make a stronger move in the 3rd game, it is most probably because the lane oil started to deplete. To start your bowling session, you may have to move more to the right to get the ball to react.

There was a time when the idea of getting a track in a ball was considered a good thing. Today though, you'll want to maintain the ball on a consistent basis. Your pro shop guy can recommend a process that is good for your particular game.
