Continuing the PBA named patterns, today we discuss the Scorpion PBA Oil Pattern. A scorpion is dangerous and unpredictable, like this pattern. If you can’t find the right groove on the lanes, you’ll be stung!
The Scorpion measures 42 feet, and similar to the Viper, can yield a wide variety of strategies depending on the type and condition of the lane surface. However, Scorpion incorporates a larger volume of oil placed further down lane which often demands a more direct line. The scoring pace is normally high for this pattern.
